The Ladies Of The Cut Go Peplums-Out And Take Trends For A Test Drive In NYC

The peplum is definitely à la mode (thanks, Alber!), and why not? It’s a flattering style that serves to hug and highlight your best assets while helping to draw attention away from the rest — sounds pretty convincing to me! However, the question remains: exactly how wearable is this high-fashion trend? Can normal (read: non-model… More »

Do Not Want: Ironic $400 Feather Headdress

Coachella just kicked off music festival season, which means ironic teepees, face paint, and other ridiculous ripoffs of Native American culture abound. Take, for example, this feathered headdress, which is currently being sold by Free People for $438. Cultural appropriation issues aside, how annoying would it be to stand behind someone wearing this during a show? More »


3 Ways To Wear It: Cropped Sweaters

The long, lean silhouette that dominated past seasons (think tunics and boyfriend cardigans) has recently given way to a much different look: short tops and sweaters that stop right at the waist or just above it. This style is super cute but it’s a bit tricky to style a cropped top if you don’t want… More »

The 2012 Spring Fashion Trend Awards!

Every spring, the fashion industry goes crazy for new trends that aren’t actually new (OMG you guys! Pastels!), but still, it’s fun to see what styles trickle down from the runways and pop up in stores around the country, and figure out how to work these looks into your own wardrobe. We sorted through this… More »


Shopping Guide: 10 Pastel Pieces

I guess I may have been a little too presumptuous in my assertions of spring, because things in New York City have taken a turn for the cold. My (rather wise) father is ascribing it to an “Arctic blast,” which seems reasonable, so I’m going to assume that this is indeed a mere blip on… More »


An Open Letter To The Modern Man Who Wears A Monocle

Dear Monocle Man,

This morning, Jessica sent me a link to the Warby Parker website, alerting me to the fact that for a mere $50 it is possible to buy a prescription monocle. This realization made me unreasonably upset. Maybe it’s because I live in Portland and the implications of thousands of steampunk… More »


Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha!

It happens to the best of us: we throw on a hot dress only to realize later there is no way to sit down without flashing everyone in the room, or maybe we’re so excited to wear our favorite sweater that we forget to put on pants. On that note, here are this week’s top… More »


Do Not Want: Suspender Shorts

I’ve always had a problem with pants and skirts that come with a belt attached. I feel like these garments represent a significant step toward the downfall of civilization. I mean, if we can’t even choose our own belt and loop it through a few belt holes how will we feed ourselves and solve the… More »


Would You Wear: Bumblebee Stripes?

The stripe trend is obviously not going anywhere, since stores are packed with more stripey items than ever. I love stripes in pretty much every incarnation–thick, thin, vertical, horizontal–and I especially love seeing designers having fun with different color combinations. One stripe color combo I’m not quite sure about, though, is black and yellow. It’s… More »


Do Or Don’t: Cheeseboard Wedding Cakes

I was browsing a cheese-themed Pinterest page the other day when I happened upon an intriguing trend: the cheeseboard wedding cake. It seems that some brides are opting for an elegant tiered cheese selection in addition to–or in lieu of–a traditional wedding cake. Julie finds this idea completely repulsive, but since my significant other isMore »


The Duchess Tries Hockey — And Colored Denim

Kate Middleton visited London’s Olympic Park today to play hockey with the national teams. In the process, she showed off a pair of super trendy red jeans — and some impressive lunging skills. Also her hair was looking perfectly wavy and frizz-free despite the physical exertion, but that was to be expected. (Oh, and it… More »


Would You Wear: Floral Pants?

As anyone who’s flipped through a fashion magazine in the past month will know, florals are really happening right now. The pattern formerly reserved for tapestries and the old pillows at your grandmother’s house has reclaimed its glory and is being worn in all its incarnations. One garment in particular became ubiquitous on the spring/summer… More »


Oscar Style Inspiration: Pretty Peplums

Tina Fey and Michelle Williams were two of the best dressed stars at the Academy Awards, and what did their gorgeous gowns have in common? Peplums! What’s a peplum, you ask? It’s a flared piece of fabric that creates an exaggerated hourglass shape. Peplums are super trendy right now and popping up on everything from… More »

5 Current Trends Charles Darwin Would Probably Be Into

I think about a lot of things when I get dressed in the morning. I consider the pros and cons of shapewear. I come up with brilliant comebacks that would have been useful 3 years ago. I realize that I kind of miss the Macarena dance. And the other day I found myself thinking, IMore »


Love ‘Em Or Leave ‘Em: Boat Shoes?

When I started seeing boat shoes in stores and fashion editorials I thought they were awesome — comfortable, versatile, with a laid back preppy vibe — but I quickly found out that not everyone shared the sentiment. My boyfriend, for example, who, upon seeing a photo, said, “I guess if you really like them, I… More »
