I’m a girl who loves a good pair of shit-kicking boots, and yes, before you ask, I insist that they bear the name of Doc Marten. All others are mere imitations, no? I take mine black, matte, and mid top because I’m hardcore like that, but you’d be pleasantly surprised by the vast selection the brand offers. They sell their famous ball-busters in every color, texture, and style imaginable. My personal favorites, as far as switching it up goes, are the spotted Italian calf hair (to die for) and the sadly no longer available pastel pairs. I love the idea of floral Docs, but the patterns they’ve used have been too great-grandma’s nylon tablecloth for my personal preference. This is where Liberty of London comes in. The famed fabric house, who has worked on collabs with everyone from Hermes to Kate Moss for Topshop, has joined forces with the staid shoemakers on a collection of shoes that’s bound to be one of the most coveted snags for spring. The shoes hit stores (and, fingers crossed, the website) come the first of May. I definitely need a pair, or two, or all of them (ahem, the ones on the right will be mine), but tell me: would you wear the outcome of this unlikely partnership?

Nylon‘s April cover girl Freida Pinto came out Tuesday night to celebrate the mag’s 13th anniversary in LA in head-to-toe Prada. While the gorgeous Indian actress usually sticks to simple solids on the red carpet, she veered off the beaten path for the event in a colorblocked frock unlike anything we’ve ever seen: the skirt of her dress was embellished with Prada’s flaming car print from the Italian fashion house’s spring/summer collection. The dress on its own doesn’t do it for me, but the addition of the kitschy graphic is the perfect accelerator to take this ensemble from ho-hum to vroom vroom. I personally couldn’t pull off this irreverent look, but Freida does without a hitch. What say you: are you feeling this cheeky design?

Colors are everywhere this spring, whether it’s eye-searing neon or soft, muted pastels. Though I’ve definitely been more adventurous with my sartorial choices as of late, I can mostly be found in black on black on black … but I can’t deny, nor explain, an attraction to all things vivid or Easter egg-y this season. I’m hesitant to buy clothes in these trendy shades, because who knows when I’ll be over it and back to my much-loved monochromatic ways? I’ve found that the best way to get my fill of color without betraying my wardrobe is by wearing it on my nails: I’ve traded in my typical mannequin-hands nude for everything from Essie’s vivid red-orange Vermillion to OPI’s sapphire blue Dating A Royal. As of yesterday, I’m sporting Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, which I’m falling more and more in love with by the minute. I was reluctant to give pale pastels a spin, considering that my skin is pretty damn pastel itself, but this light greenish turquoise is the perfect contrast to my perfectly neutral-toned complexion. I’m obsessed! Your prettiest pastel is dependent upon your skin tone — fair girls like me should go for greens and blues, while medium tones are better suited to lilac or peach. Darker ladies already have the perfect backdrop for pastels without having to worry about it washing them out, so they’ve got the lucky pick of the litter. What’s the verdict: would you spring for these shades? (from L-R: Essie Mint Candy Apple, Essie Lilacism, Essie Fiji)

Would You Wear: January Jones’s Subtle Lavender Shadow?

Let’s face it: January Jones probably looks just as good in fleece sweatpants as she does decked out in a ball gown. Her enviable facial features — those eyes! Those cheekbones! — also happen to make the perfect showcase for just about any makeup look, so when I say I don’t know if this one quite works, I don’t mean it doesn’t look good. I love a hit of lavender on the lids or in the crease of the eye, but does it really make a statement when it’s smoked out into a subtle wing? With no liner, the look lacks punch, and combined with the sweet pink lipstick, this face has little impact for me. To make it more striking, I would have added black liquid liner and gone nude on the lips. What do you think? Would you wear January’s soft, sweeping lavender shadow, or do you prefer a more defined look? [via BellaSugar]

I feel strangely ambivalent in regards to hair accessories. I love the look of them — there’s nothing cuter than a well-placed decorative clip or a contrasting headband accenting a ’60s-style bouffant … on someone else. I own a variety of hair accessories, which I often put on in the morning and end up pulling out right before I leave the house, because as a person with a great amount of nervous energy and an even greater amount of discontentment with my appearance (I’m so much fun), I just can’t seem to keep anything in my hair for longer than an hour or two. That being said, I have some kind of magnetic attraction to floral hair accessories that leads me to buy them and spend far more time debating wearing them and preening in front of the mirror wearing them than actually, you know, wearing them. Seeing as I’m a decidedly un-floral person in most other aspects, it must be the San Franciscan in me that’s drawn to a little flower perched atop a bobby pin — I just can’t help myself. I’m particularly obsessed with the perfect chiffon peonies that J. Crew sells in a million gorgeous colors (in stores only), but how easy would these be to DIY? I’ve never DAM (Done Anything Myself) because I am exceedingly untrustworthy with a hot glue gun, but this is one craft I think I could pull off without a hitch. Would you wear them? Would you wear them all day? If so, you are a far stronger person than I.

It’s bizarre to hear the words “mullet” and “trend” in the same sentence, but here it goes: mullet skirts, in all of their business in the back/party out front (I guess that makes it more of a reverse mullet) glory, are a huge trend right now. Its inception, like that of most trends, was on the runway: the style was almost unprecedentedly popular during the Spring/Summer 2012 season, shown in some incarnation at Thakoon, Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, and more. It didn’t take long after for celebrities and fashionistas alike to pick up on what is technically called the “high-low” skirt. Some pull it off well, while others… don’t pull it off at all. It’s definitely a tricky trend to master for anyone, but the real question is, would you be down to give it a shot? If you’re a ballsier street stylist than I, more power to you — I’ve included a few styles to shop from after the jump. Keep reading »
