Ask The Man Panel: Topshop’s Fringed Skirt

This Topshop tasseled maxi skirt takes the fringe trend to, well, the max. With its tie-dye top section, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in our Coachella style roundup, but that’s about the only situation I can imagine wearing it. We asked the Man Panel what they thought of this uber-bohemian look, and here’s what they had to say… Keep reading »

Do A Man’s Exposed Ankles Excite You?

Now that the temperature has finally begun to warm up, more men seem to be cuffing their pants. This gives them the opportunity to show off their shoes and gives the overall look a more casual feel. But cuffed pants also expose the ankles, an area of a man’s leg we usually only see if he is wearing shorts. In eras past, the sight of a woman’s ankle gave men a stir. Are you having a similar experience now that cuffed pants for men are the norm? Are you for or against men cuffing their pants? Keep reading »

Would You Wear: Painted Space Shoes?

For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet?

An Open Letter To Orange

Dear Orange,

I feel like you and I got off on the wrong foot. Or, at least we would have, if you had feet. You’re just a color so that wasn’t really the correct phrase to use. But here’s the thing… Keep reading »

The Pointed-Toe Flat Pump Is Making A Return. Ugh!

Fashion is once again being unfriendly to short women. According to the fashion directors at the top department stores, like Lord & Taylor and Neiman Marcus, sensible, pointed-toe flats are making a return. This might have something to do with the lower hemlines or boho fashions that are popular now, or maybe some women are simply sick of sky-high heels? But this is one trend I’m completely opposed to. Why? Well, for one thing I like having a little lift — OK, a lot of lift — from a high heel. And secondly, a short person wearing pointed-toe flats runs the risk of looking like an elf. And that’s not a good look! Of course, I have nothing personally against flat shoes. Rounded-toe or almond-toe ballet flats are chic and sensible. Pointed-toe ones, not so much. How do you feel about the return of pointed-toe flats? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

What Trend Did You Discover?

When I was in college, I started doing this innovative thing with my clothes: I wore dresses over jeans. It was not cool. It was so not cool that one of my coworkers at the college paper wrote in my bio, “Julie started the dresses over jeans trend–AND WE WISH SHE WOULD STOP.” But then! Lo, some three years later, EVERYBODY was wearing dresses over jeans. Marc Jacobs was putting dresses over jeans down the frigging runway. We now have an entire confusing category of clothing–the dress/shirt or shirt/dress–created from this trend. I feel vindicated: I was ahead of the curve on the dress/jeans combo. Maybe I even invented it (probably not).

Have you ever been on the cutting edge of discovering a new fashion phenom or pervasive trend? Keep reading »
