Unlikely Style Inspiration: Harry Styles’ Heart Print Shirt

I get style inspiration from a lot of unexpected places, from cookbooks to fabric stores to the especially lovely shade of pink my neighbor's head turns when he mows his lawn on hot afternoons. But even though I try to keep an open mind about the things that might inspire my wardrobe, I must admit…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: “Orange Is The New Black”

We love "Orange Is The New Black" for a variety of reasons, chief among them, I can't think of another television program that so authentically speaks in women's voices, where women's lives are so thoroughly explored and uncovered. Come to think of it, it's hard, even, to think of another television show that features so…

Random Style Inspiration: Royal Baby Madness

Not sure if you've caught wind of the barely mentioned, mostly overlooked news story that Duchess Kate is IN LABOR RIGHT NOW and the royal baby will be born ANY MINUTE. I couldn't resist putting together a little collection of cute crown-themed products inspired by the birthday of the future king…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Winona’s Dad

I love the idea of doing a fashion post inspired by my dad because his complete and total disdain for fashion is one of the major reasons I became interested in it. My dad's style outlook can be summed up as "function over fashion." He chooses his outfits based on two factors: comfort, and strategic…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Rachel’s Dad

In honor of Father's Day, we thought it would be fun to draw some style inspiration from the most unlikely of sources: our dads. Our fathers' lifestyles -- and fashion senses -- vary greatly, but one thing's for sure: all our dads definitely have a look that's all their own. Let's kick things off with…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Jessica’s Dad

Here at The Frisky, we're celebrating Father's Day in style by taking some unexpected fashion cues from our dads. First up was Amelia's California dad's amazing '70s denim-on-denim look. Jessica's New England-based dad is up next. Here's how Jess described her computer programmer papa's style: "My dad wears shirts or pants with hole…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Amelia’s Dad

My dad had a number of signature looks over the course of my childhood, aspects of which I did not and still do not think are cute, like the yellow tinted Lennon-glasses and the pair of Birkenstocks permanently on his feet (with socks in winter). (I did, however, always dig his vintage T-shirt collection.) But…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Gloria Steinem, On Her Birthday

Gloria Steinem is a feminist hero. She's also a smokin' hot babe with great style. Since today is her 79th birthday, we thought we'd celebrate not only her contributions to the feminist movement, but also her enduring look -- her signature oversized glasses, short skirts and center-parted hair. We've attempted to help you get her…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Sister Witches Of “Hocus Pocus”

The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy "Hocus Pocus" is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn't want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it's intended. Halloween may be…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Audrey In “Metropolitan”

Tuesday night I went to a special screening of Whit Stillman's "Metropolitan," with a Q&A with the director and actor Chris Eigeman after. I forgot how much I loved this movie, which is an ode to all things prep and Upper East Side in the late '80s. The characters are all having existential crises about…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Nate Ruess From Fun.

On Friday I went to a Fun. concert. Like, the band Fun. And it was really fun. And all this fun talk is getting very confusing. Anyway, to the point: lead singer Nate Ruess put on a great show, and his look was on point: rolled skinny jeans, white oxfords, and a classic navy blazer.

Unlikely Style Icon: Monique, The French Girl In “Better Off Dead”

I watched the '80s classic "Better Off Dead" this weekend, and wow, hindsight really is 20/20. First off, it's pretty clear that John Cusack's character Lane Meyer is kind of an obsessive psycho when it comes to his girlfriend Beth. Um, hangers with her picture on them? Cuh-raaaaaazy. Second, Beth is pretty much a wet…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Elvis Presley

On this day 35 years ago, the world lost the king of rock and roll. Elvis Presley's tragic death at 42 shocked the nation and, as then-president Jimmy Carter made clear, irreparably changed the face of American pop culture. Elvis's most celebrated tracks, not to mention his heartbreaking slow-motion fall from grace, may be seared…

Unlikely Style Icon: Annie Lennox’s “Sweet Dreams” Look

Annie Lennox totally killed it during last night's Olympic closing ceremony. The singer, who got her start as one half of The Eurythmics, performed a rousing, pirate-y rendition of her hit "Little Bird," which stood out against the four (four!) Jessie J performances and Fat Boy Slim's faux DJ-ing. We were reminded of Annie's super…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Summer Camp

I'm not a big fan of summer camp. Probably because the one time I went to summer camp every other camper in my cabin got violently ill, I had to deflect projectile vomit with my sleeping bag, the counselors vaguely accused me of poisoning everyone, and--unrelated but just as tragic--my favorite soccer shorts got swept…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Bachelorette Parties

It's wedding season, which means it's bachelorette party season, which means purchases of pink feather boas and penis-shaped accessories are skyrocketing. Whether you're looking for some fashion ideas for the big night out or want to bring some of that flamboyant bachelorette style into your everyday wardrobe, we're spotlighting six must-have pieces inspired by bachelorette…

Style Inspiration: Tuxedos, Redefined

When you hear the word "tuxedo" you probably think of George Clooney at the Oscars and hedge fund managers sipping champagne at stuffy black tie events. But as you can see, there's a whole different side to the tuxedo: it's a fun, feminine style to try out this summer in the form of chic shorts,…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Cat Ladies

The term "cat lady" is often used to describe a dowdy spinster, but we've always considered it a compliment. Looks like the world is finally catching on, because cat ladies are actually having something of a fashion moment right now. Here are eight of our favorite cat-themed items to help you become a crazy-stylish cat…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Golfers

A few months ago I got the sudden urge to learn how to play golf, so I signed up for a community education course and we had our first class this past Saturday. Besides all the weird golf terms (frog hair?!), the most surprising thing I learned was that golf style is pretty…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Incredible Hulk

"The Avengers" smashed box office records this weekend, and who was responsible for most of the smashing in the film? The Incredible Hulk of course! Played by Mark Ruffalo, Hulk is temperamental, strangely lovable, and green. Very, very green. Click through for six gorgeous green pieces that are totally wearable whether or not you're raging…
