Would You Wear: Doc Martens x Liberty of London?

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…

Would You Wear: Freida Pinto’s Prada Car Dress?

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…

Would You Wear: Pastel Nail Polish?

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.

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…

Would You Wear: Flower Hair Pins?

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…

Would You Wear: Mullet Skirts?

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 o…

Would You Wear: Bustier Tops?

Lingerie-inspired dressing is hot right now, and celebrities are taking note. Just last night, Miley Cyrus attended the premiere of “The Hunger Games” in a glorified bra-and-maxi skirt combo. While her interpretation fell flat for us, I would totally snag that bustier top and pair it with something less matchy-matchy, or even wear it under…

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&#8217…

Would You Wear: Nicki Minaj’s Neon Hair?

Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year…

Would You Wear … Saddle Shoes?

When these pink patent leather saddle shoes popped up on my Pinterest feed (try saying that five times fast!), I loved them in spite of myself. I’m pretty sure the last time I wore saddle shoes was third grade picture day, but oh man, now I’m dreaming about pairing them with dark skinny jeans and…

Love ‘Em Or Leave ‘Em: Message Sweaters

Remember when message T-shirts were really popular and Paris Hilton was always wearing baby tees that said things like “Hottie” or “I love shoes”? That was a weird time. These days, sweaters seem to have surpassed T-shirts as the wordiest garments. Stores are packed with cozy pullovers and cardigans emblazoned with random sayings like “Bonjour!&#8221…

Would You Wear: Sequined Shorts?

You know in movies when a character is so deep in thought they wander around the city completely unaware of their surroundings, stepping in front of buses and scattering flocks of pigeons? That was me yesterday, pondering sequined shorts. As a diehard fan of sequins, I love every sparkly trend, but sequined shorts bring u…

Would You Wear … Velvet Shoes?

Every year, fashion designers and editors try to make velvet happen, which is fine. A velvet dress really does look smashing at a holiday party, after all. And this season everyone is trying to turn the men’s slipper into the new ballet flat, which is a little weird, but I’m slowly warming up to the…

Would You Wear: Peacock Eyelashes?

Peacock eyelashes — how whimsical and quirky, right? Or … how annoying and weird. Depends on how you look at it. I wish I could actually see what these lashes look like straight on, but sadly, Modcloth is instead only offering a dramatic glance at them. So tell us, would you wear these birdbrained lashes?

Would You Wear: Lion Paw Louboutins?

Christian Louboutin’s got lions on the brain. And on his toes. These very literal kitten heels might make you the queen of the jungle, but they’ll also garner you a slew of strange looks. Then again, maybe you’ll discover your inner fierce spirit animal. [Full Frontal Fashion]…

Would You Wear: Painted Space Shoes?

For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet? [via tulletulle]…

Would You Wear: Bright Blue Walter Steiger Platforms?

These clown car Walter Steiger platforms will add an extra 4.5 inches to your height, but on the flip side, they may make you look like a circus freak. If you’re okay with that, then by all means, wobble forth in these mega-platforms. But if you’re less than sure-footed, may we suggest you start off…

Would You Wear: The Romeo & Juliet Feather Peplum Jacket?

Feathers are everywhere this fashion season. They’re on blouses, sweaters, skirts, and jackets, like this Peplum Jacket from Romeo & Juliet Couture. The feathers on this jacket are nowhere near the face or neck, so there’s no risk of looking like the Chicken Lady or Big Bird. But there’s still something off about this jacket.

Would You Wear: The Faux Moto Jacket Tee?

We can’t stop staring at this trompe l’oeil shirt with a motorcycle jacket print on it. It’s kind of confusing … and we’re not sure that’s a good thing. But, better, we suppose, than a faux tuxedo t-shirt, right? Do you think this design is edgy or too far off the edge? [Urban Outfitters]…

Would You Spend Up To $300 On A Friendship Bracelet?

We love these super fun one-of-a-kind friendship bracelets by designers Frieda and Nellie, though ranging from $150 to $300, are these pricey bracelets worth the splurge? The combination of saturated colors, rhinestones and vintage charms are fantastic, but something inside me keeps saying we should just be making these ourselves.
