I scoped out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale over the weekend, and one trend definitely stood out to me: So. Much. Faux. Leather. I’m not complaining! I love the look of leather, but I really love faux leather because it’s more affordable and more humane than genuine leather. Want to add this sexy trend to your fall wardrobe? I rounded up 10 of my favorite faux leather pieces from the Nordstrom sale, including sexy leather-esque pants in plus, petite, and regular sizes. Click through to shop the trend, but shop fast — these prices are only good til August 5th!
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?

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]
