The New York Times points out that men’s sweaters are looking very folksy and Nordic this year, backing up their claim with examples by Topman and Ralph Lauren. We’re down with this slightly retro style for the ladies. It recalls all the goodness of winter—cabins, wood fires, skiing, snow. How do we feel about this look for dudes? Cute? Or should it stay on the ski slopes? [New York Times] Keep reading »

Bellbottoms are big again. Like, literally. Check out this super-sized pair by Ellery, for example, which cost a cool $900. I can’t think of too many places where one might be able to wear these. Maybe to a Celine Dion concert. If you were Celine Dion. Anyway, here’s what the guys on our Man Panel had to say about ‘em:

This scarf is a great way to get the Ikat trend into your wardrobe without having to dive in completely. You can add a pop of color or texture to any number of outfits, wear around your neck or head, or tied to your bag. The combination of green, orange, pink and ivory is perfect for fall, and works well with just about any skin tone. It would look beautiful thrown over everything from a peacoat or giant sweater to a silk or lace top. [Luxury Ikat Scarf, $40, Spun by Subtle] Keep reading »
Teenage heartthrob and alleged assaulter Justin Bieber has a new project in the works: perfume. Bieber’s unisex fragrance, “My World,” will be infused into wristbands and dog tags in a new patented resin technology designed to hold the scent for over a year. The scent, which will be launched at Walmart for Black Friday, is, according to Bieber, not “too young, too fruity.” And of course the 16-year-old entertainer has his eyes on the horizon. Next up? A possible sneaker collab. [WWD] Keep reading »
Ripped, shredded clothing — from leggings to T-shirts — is definitely in right now. I loved Carrie’s DIY holey T, and this weekend, my friend Lindsay showed up at her surprise birthday party wearing ripped magenta tights. When I asked her about it, she said the tights got caught on her bedpost a couple days after she bought them so she just went with it and ripped ‘em up more. She looked fabulous, but when it comes to buying stuff with holes in it already, I’m not so sure … Keep reading »
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the evolution of my personal style. As a kid I was a chubby tomboy who favored dirty overalls and baggy T-shirts. In middle and high school, inspired by the indie music scene, I became a thrift shop queen (budding hipster?) with a large collection of vintage T-shirts. In college I decided I would become rural Oregon’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw and often wore tutus to my Comparative Religions class. Keep reading »
We’re loving these street-style snaps from Paris Fashion Week for the bold lips these ladies are rocking. We’ve seen neon lipstick hues on the runway before, but know the super bright beauty look doesn’t always translate so well to the real world. These girls show you how it’s done—go minimal with the rest of your makeup and keep your hair simple and natural. If you’re looking for some products to try out a fruity punch pout, check out our suggestions after the jump! [Cafe Mode] Keep reading »
It was almost a year ago exactly when we covered the leather shorts trend. However, over the last year, the styles and options have grown quite a bit. Quilted, speckled, high-waisted and low, leather shorts are showing up everywhere this fall — and everyone has a different opinion of them.
It appears there is no middle ground with leather shorts — they just don’t have a “meh-ness” to them. We’ve heard everything from “fug” to “love” to “They look good on models.” I love the way Annika would style them: “I’m so team leather shorts…
” Kate and Simcha both love the idea of leather, but they’d rather stay in the skirt realm. Me? I love ‘em so much I went out and grabbed a pair. Styled them with a sheer shirt buttoned all the way up and a hard shouldered blazer; and you know what? My man loves them. What do YOU think?
More details after the jump.. Keep reading »
