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]

Polka dot jeans have been popping up on all my favorite fashion blogs and stylish ladies I see on the street, and it’s causing me to have some pretty major polka dot jeans envy. I have a big move coming up, so I’m trying not to buy too many new clothes. What’s a trend-obsessed girl to do? Add polka dots to a pair of jeans I already own, obviously! I’m going to try this super easy DIY on a pair of denim cutoffs this weekend and think spring-y thoughts. Care to join me? [A Merry Mishap]

I’ve been looking for a chunky, menswear-inspired watch for awhile now, and this one, with a black tuxedo stripe and ring of rhinestones, might be The One. I’ll wear it with a slouchy black V-neck sweater and jeans, and be fashionably on time everywhere I go. [$22, Nordstrom]
On this week’s episode of “Nashville,” Juliette Barnes wore an amazing metallic rose print blouse that I immediately used my TV wardrobe-stalking skills to track down, only to find it costs $250, which is, you know, about $150 more than I’d ever spend on a blouse. I didn’t mourn for too long though, because I found a bunch more rose print pieces I actually can afford, and they’re just as cute.
