Palazzo Pants Make A Return … Let’s Rejoice?

I remember 1993 like it was yesterday. CeCe Peniston was a “few-hit wonder,” and if you weren’t into grunge fashion, then you probably decked yourself out in the glamorous ’70s look that was in vogue at the time. Spurred along by pop singers like CeCe, palazzo pants had a major moment in ’93. They were a super roomy hybrid of bell bottoms and wide leg pants … and were extremely comfy. But I never expected this trend to get a redux because, well, maxi skirts are just as roomy and don’t remind folks of culottes. Keep reading »

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 »
