Would You Wear: The Romeo & Juliet Feather Peplum Jacket?

Feathers are everywhere this fashion season. They’re on blouses, sweaters, skirts, and jackets, like this Peplum Jacket from Romeo & Juliet Couture. The feathers on this jacket are nowhere near the face or neck, so there’s no risk of looking like the Chicken Lady or Big Bird. But there’s still something off about this jacket. It looks as if Romeo & Juliet had an overstock of plain blazers and tried to update them with feathers for the current season. I can think of only one way to style this jacket — skinny pants or jeans. And that’s not enough styling possibilities for a look that will last only one season. So would you wear the Romeo & Juliet Feather Peplum Jacket? [Last Call By Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »

Ask The Man Panel: Yogurt Dress

I’m a huge fan of the swirly fabric flower. I would estimate that 65 percent of the things I own are adorned with some kind of floral fabric poof. From ballet flats to belts to headbands to blouses, I love it all. Naturally, then, I’m pretty obsessed with this elaborately ruffled Marchesa mini-dress.

Do Not Want: Lumpy Leggings

We included skinny cargo pants on our list of trends we hope die in 2011 for good reason, but these cargo leggings deserve a separate shout-out of their own.

For shame! [$176, Shopbop] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Denim Designers

Dear Jeans Designers,

The other day I was standing in line at the grocery store and for no particular reason at all I had a flashback to a few years ago when super low-rise jeans were all the rage. Every rack at every store from Forever 21 to J.Jill was stocked with nothing but thong-baring jeans with 3-inch crotches. As an Italian girl with an ample belly, this was a very dark time for me… Keep reading »

Fringe Tights: The Pros And Cons

When I first caught a glimpse of these fringe tights on the Neiman Marcus website, I was filled with conflicting emotions. On the one hand, it might be fun to put them on and do a little dance. On the other hand, they’re sort of awful-looking. Check out a comprehensive list of pros and cons after the jump … Keep reading »

Men’s Fashion Is Looking Very Nordic This Winter—Yay Or Nay?

The New York Times points out that men’s sweaters are looking very folksy and Nordic this year, backing up their claim with examples by Topman and Ralph Lauren. We’re down with this slightly retro style for the ladies. It recalls all the goodness of winter—cabins, wood fires, skiing, snow. How do we feel about this look for dudes? Cute? Or should it stay on the ski slopes? [New York Times] Keep reading »
