From Bagelheads to period blood chocolate, Japan really knows how to start a trend. The latest Japanese trend you can really sink your teeth into is the rise of the unlikely sex symbol, the “sausage bread boy.”
Named after the popular Japanese snack, a hot dog baked in pastry dough, these men, who are currently considered a hot commodity on the singles scene, have body types that vaguely resemble the beloved snack: soft and doughy, fluffy in an appealing way (the illustration above shows the ideal sausage bread boy). As if they weren’t already cute enough, SBBs often dress like laid back mountain men. Yes, we’ll take an order of that, please! [Nerve]

There are so many questions to ask yourself if you’re in the process of planning a wedding, but the most important one is: will you be hiring donkeys? According to The Knot, the latest, no-I’m-not-kidding-you wedding trend is to have donkeys at your nuptials.
Apparently, brides and grooms are using donkeys in all sorts of creative ways — from acting as butlers by distributing beers to guests, to transporting the bride down the aisle, to wearing costumes and acting as live scenery. An Arizona company appropriately called Haul N Ass specializes in rentable donkeys for weddings. Their trained asses will cost you $250 an hour, but Vanessa Rice of Haul N Ass assures you, they will be worth the price of admission. Keep reading »
The crop top trend can be pretty intimidating, but don’t let a little midriff scare you. Matching crop top and skirt sets appeared all over the runways of fashion week and are a major trend this spring. I recommend keeping the shapes structured and the midriff exposure to a minimal sexy peek. Here are 11 crop top and skirt sets I’m jonesing for…
Sure, you could work out in a plain pair of black leggings, but where’s the fun in that? Athletic brands are packing the spring shelves with capri leggings and running tights in all kinds of bright, crazy patterns — why not grab a pair for yourself and bring a little life to your gym wardrobe (not to mention those dull miles on the treadmill)? Click through for 10 of our favorite printed leggings that just might motivate you to exercise. And if not, they’ll look pretty cool running errands too.
I’m really into the over-the-knee socks trend. I think they look super cute under boots, layered over tights, leggings, or bare legs. They’re flattering, sexy, and warm — a rare trifecta that’s been especially appreciated in this awful cold weather we’ve been having. I had been wistfully admiring this look on other women for awhile, but I was hesitant to try it myself. As someone with, umm, ample thighs, I didn’t think I’d ever be able to find over-the-knee socks that didn’t pinch or create a wool sausage effect. Then I ordered a pair of EG Smith over-the-knee socks from Sock Dreams, and now I’m rarely ever not wearing them. I had to take a moment to share the love with y’all, because these socks are THAT good. Keep reading »
Here at The Frisky, we hate the phrase “I can’t wear that,” because honestly, no matter the trend or your body type, there’s always a way to make a style work for you. In our new feature “I Can’t Wear That (Or Can I?),” we’ll talk about subtle tweaks and tips that make any trend — from crop trops to neon orange — accessible to all. Yes, really! First up, stylish sneakers for non-models:
I really, really love the sneakers-with-stylish-outfits trend, but as a short, curvy lady, I’m worried that on me it will look more “frumpy soccer mom” than “cool, off-duty model.” Is there a way for me to rock my bright sneakers without making people wonder if I just forgot to pack my regular flats in my gym bag? Can I really pull this off?
Girl, you totally can. While model types might be able to throw on sneaks, sweats, and sunglasses, and get photographed by The Sartorialist, we non-models just have to work a bit harder to ensure our sneakers look purposeful instead of lazy. Here are a few guidelines: Keep reading »
Well, the results are in, and it turns out that men hate pretty much all of this year’s biggest trends: high-waisted pants, sneakers, short hair, makeup, body autonomy, etc. How are we supposed to dress ourselves in the face of such ire and confusion from the opposite sex? YouTube Goddess Tadelesmith is here to solve the mystery! [YouTube]
I bought a pair of faux leather pants a couple months ago, but I haven’t worn them much because I can’t figure out exactly how to wear them. They’re not a super skinny jeggings style, so they look a bit off with baggy tops and tunics, but tight tops don’t look right either. Enter Julianne Hough for some style inspiration: I love how she cuffed up her leather pants and paired them with boyish oxfords and a simple sweater. Totally recreating this look for myself. Here’s how: Keep reading »
