Style Stealer: Julianne Hough Is My Leather Pants Mentor

Julianne Hough Leather Pants Style Stealer

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 »

Shopping The Trend: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is one of those trends (and by “one of those trends” I mean “all trends”) that come back around every few years, but I always get particularly excited when fashion magazines start being like, “Have you heard of this really pretty color called cobalt blue?” because cobalt blue happens to be my favorite color. And luckily, this fall is yet another season of cobalt. Pair this bold blue with black, cream, khaki, and other neutrals, or play with more unexpected combinations like hot pink or deep red. However you wear it, here are 10 cobalt pieces to bring a bit of this fabulous trend into your fall wardrobe…

I’m very intrigued by the new wave of accessories that has cropped up specifically to cater to teenage hipsters attending music festivals (I’m looking at you, giant floral crowns and crocheted bikini tops). Fanciful garters and other thigh decorations meant to be paired with super short shorts are another trend in this category. Pretty sure this pentagram garter, for example, was created to cater to the mysterious, slightly goth breed of festival girl. I’m not sure if I should be more concerned about the fact that a pentagram is a meaningful religious symbol that should probably not just be wrapped around your thigh “because it looks cool,” or because the tan lines from this thing would be pretty horrific. I think I’m gonna go with the tan lines. [$22, Karmaloop]

Nope, I Do Not Accept Adidas Slides As High Fashion Accessories

High fashion Adidas Slides

Adidas slides have been the purview of college bros for decades now, the choice footwear for pairing with over-sized basketball shorts and visor caps. But of late, they’ve been making insidious inroads in the fashion world. Witness the style shoot above, for the brand Aitken Jolly: the knee-high athletics socks were bad enough, but the slides? You are taking it to a Next Level Awful place.

And Aitken Jolly aren’t the only ones: Fashionista spoke to Nonoo designer Misha Nonoo, who said, “I just thought the Adidas shower sandals really spoke to something that’s kind of l’air du temps.” Uh, what?

Fashion “experts” say that the renewed interest in Adidas slides goes back to high-end designer Phoebe Philo and her collections for Celine. “The clean lines and shape of the Adidas sandal are very much on point with where fashion accessories are going right now–the first example that comes to mind on a designer level is the Celine sandals in regards to shape and style,” said stylist Danielle Nachmani.

I literally squealed with glee when I saw this chalkboard manicure, and I was even more excited when I learned it wasn’t some exclusive runway design, but actually a nail art kit available at Sephora. You start with a matte black polish that’s like chalkboard paint for your nails (see also: Pinterest’s wet dream), then once that dries, add some colorful designs with one of the colorful chalk pens, and seal it with a clear top coat. Love. [$25, Sephora]
