Fall Must Haves: 10 Superb Slouchy Sweaters

Every fall my passionate love affair with slouchy sweaters begins anew. I wear them pretty much constantly: with jeans and boots, miniskirts and tights, over sparkly dresses at night, and, of course, with undies and argyle socks to lounge around my house on the weekends.

10 Color Names That Might Be Grosser Than “Oxblood”

I’m not sure if it’s God or Anna Wintour or the Pantone people who come up with the trendy color names every season, but this fall the fashion world is going crazy for “oxblood,” a deep burgundy that we can only assume  is the same hue as, well, ox blood. Beautiful color, totally gross name,…

This fall has brought us a plethora of fabulous clothing and accessories in delicious shades of tangerine, apricot, pumpkin, and, well, orange (did anyone else just get really hungry?).

NYFW Trend Forecast: Cuckoo For Cutouts

Cutouts are a simple way to add a little sex appeal to an outfit. Which is probably why they were so prominent in the spring/summer 2013 collections presented at New York Fashion Week. From body-sculpting slashes and patterns, to more random and spontaneous marks, whether you prefer a peekaboo style, or a more geometric ski…

Trendspotting: 6 Brand-New Beauty Ideas From NYFW

When a designer strays outside the box of beauty stalwarts, it’s a refreshing change, given our steady diet of so-called “trends” — smoky eyes, red lips, dewy skin, and bold brows. These ubiquitous looks are beautiful and striking, but they’re also easy go-tos, which on principle renders them, well, kind of boring. But with each…

According To NYFW, Black Is The New Black For Next Summer

Spring and summer fashion is generally pretty predictable insofar as it is, well, summery — think airy, diaphanous fabrics in light, muted colors accented by eye-catching brights, and you’ve just about hit the nail on the head every time.

Must Haves: Fierce, Fabulous Plus-Size Denim

Denim is totally having a moment. I mean, yes, you could say that denim has been having one long moment since the day it was first invented, but I’m hard-pressed to think of a time there was such an exciting variety of denim pieces available in so many cuts, colors, styles, and sizes. From pencil…

Celeb Street Style Spotlight: Colored Denim

When stores started filling up with colorful jeans a couple years ago, I was pretty sure it would be a passing trend, but the look has stuck around, and you know what? I’m glad it has. Colored denim opens up so many new outfit possibilities, and can easily be dressed up or down. Looking for…

Can We Talk About Guys In Tank Tops?

It’s officially September now, which means it’s time to reflect on how we spent the dog days of summer. Did you have a good summer? Did you make boozy popsicles? Did you smile broadly while wearing a sunhat the size of a Mini Cooper? If so, good work! Want to know what I did thi…

Do Not Want: Sheer Layered Printed Peplum Thingy

This photo reminds me of some kind of “Count the trends!” game you might find in a fashion-themed issue of Highlights magazine. I’ve counted nine so far: bralette, geometric necklace, tribal prints, mixed prints, peplum, layers, mini skirt, pencil skirt, sheer fabric. Am I missing any? Also how in the world could you ever wear…

Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

So I guess matching your lipstick to your nail polish is kind of a thing now?

Is Whitney Port’s Purple Makeup So Wrong, Or So Wrong It’s Right?

With September on the horizon (dun dun dunnnnn), celebrities are often the first ones to convert their looks from beach-ready basics to the sultrier trappings of fall.
