Shopping Guide: 10 Pastel Pieces

I guess I may have been a little too presumptuous in my assertions of spring, because things in New York City have taken a turn for the cold. My (rather wise) father is ascribing it to an “Arctic blast,” which seems reasonable, so I’m going to assume that this is indeed a mere blip on the late-March radar. Given the weather, it may not seem high time for spring clothes, but really, is there ever a bad time for pastels? This year, trend-starters and garden-variety fashionistas alike are getting bold with brights and their diluted counterparts, so I have reason to believe that come early summer, Easter-egg shades will be inescapable. They’re the perfect way to inject some à la mode color into your look without taking the neon route and ease your style into something a little more warm-weather friendly. Behold, my selection of the prettiest pastel clothing and accessories, perfect for sweetening up your wardrobe this time of year.

Dear Monocle Man,

This morning, Jessica sent me a link to the Warby Parker website, alerting me to the fact that for a mere $50 it is possible to buy a prescription monocle. This realization made me unreasonably upset. Maybe it’s because I live in Portland and the implications of thousands of steampunk hipsters trying to balance ironic monocles atop their cheekbones while riding fixed gear bicycles are not only disturbing but dangerous. Or maybe it’s because I think monocles are dumb … Keep reading »

Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha!

It happens to the best of us: we throw on a hot dress only to realize later there is no way to sit down without flashing everyone in the room, or maybe we’re so excited to wear our favorite sweater that we forget to put on pants. On that note, here are this week’s top “Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha” moments from red carpets, award stages, and online stores.

I’ve always had a problem with pants and skirts that come with a belt attached. I feel like these garments represent a significant step toward the downfall of civilization. I mean, if we can’t even choose our own belt and loop it through a few belt holes how will we feed ourselves and solve the global warming crisis? When I saw these shorts with suspenders attached, well, that’s when I knew there was no hope for mankind. [$137, Pink Mascara]

The stripe trend is obviously not going anywhere, since stores are packed with more stripey items than ever. I love stripes in pretty much every incarnation–thick, thin, vertical, horizontal–and I especially love seeing designers having fun with different color combinations. One stripe color combo I’m not quite sure about, though, is black and yellow. It’s visually striking, but no matter how chic the silhouette it always brings to mind the round bumblebee costumes of elementary school plays. What do you guys think? Would you wear black and yellow stripes? [$63, ASOS]

I was browsing a cheese-themed Pinterest page the other day when I happened upon an intriguing trend: the cheeseboard wedding cake. It seems that some brides are opting for an elegant tiered cheese selection in addition to–or in lieu of–a traditional wedding cake. Julie finds this idea completely repulsive, but since my significant other is a cheesemonger, I must say I’m pretty intrigued. Maybe it’s because I know firsthand that there’s nothing more romantic than a big ol’ hunk of brie? [Newport Weddings]
