Would You Wear: Alexander Wang’s Knit Crop Top?

When is the last time you went bare midriff-style? (The beach doesn't count.) We're guessing it was sometime when "Felicity" was still on the air. This knit crop top by Alexander Wang is taking us back down wardrobe memory lane ... but we're not so sure this look is hot anymore. Or if it ever…

Would You Wear: Unisex Hiking Boots?

Footwear designer George Esquivel has released a collection of unisex hiking boots that have the function of a hiking boot, but also come in eye-catching saturated colors, like forest green and teal. These hiking boots also have a streamlined style that makes them appropriate for men and women. But would you wear the same hiking…

Would You Wear: Prada Customizable Sunglasses?

We're reluctant to admit it out loud, but isn't the point of wearing designer glasses to wear designer glasses and feel the smug satisfaction of your status logo beaming from the corners of your eyes? Prada has just released customizable sunglasses so that the wearer can choose two letters to show off. This would the…

Would You Wear: The Monocle Necklace?

Here's the type of thing that we'd put on one of our "things we'd like to bring back" lists ... if we were doing "Things We'd Like To Bring Back, The 19th Century Version." Of course, right off the bat, anyone who wears a monocle glass around their neck is going to be labeled a…

Would You Wear: Skirted Leather Shorts?

When we last left off, the leather shorts debate was still fully raging. So when we saw these "skirted leather shorts" by Ellery, we had to wonder if they would attract or disgust pro-leather shorts wearers. They've got that whole edgy "Tron" vibe, which has been oh-so-popular as of late, and the skort aspect i…

Would You Wear: Opening Ceremony’s “Tron” Collection?

Out of all the movies out there, "Tron" definitely wasn't on our radar as a potential style influencer. But apparently, designers have been finding inspiration in the sci-fi flick, which just goes to show you that fashion is as unpredictable as ever. The latest: Opening Ceremony's "Tron Legacy" line, which features bulky and structured piece…

Runway To Retail: The Most Fabulous Fur Booties

We are loving the major fall trend of fur booties. Whether real or faux, designers of all levels have added fuzzy boots to their fall lineup. We’ve been obsessing over the Christian Louboutin “Toundra” fur bootie for some time now, so when we discovered Forever 21’s faux fur pair, we could barely contain our excitement.

What Do We Think Of Plaid Kitten Heel Boots?

Plaid + kitten heel + boot = incredibly cute? Or OTT? We're feeling these Jun Takahashi boots ... but think they look like a serious pain to walk in. [High Snobette]…

Would You Wear: A Muff?

The only person I can ever remember wearing a muff was Samantha Parkington of the American Girl doll collection. I was pretty keen on Sam's Victorian style back in the day, so I'm inclined to say that I'd totally rock an old-school muff. Benefits: it's hard to lose, easier on/off than gloves, and definitely something…

Would You Wear: The Eiffel Tower Engagement Ring?

Not like you really get much of a choice when it comes to your engagement ring, but what would you say to this Eiffel Tower-themed piece? According to The New York Times, couples are increasingly looking for personalized wedding accessories, so those who got engaged at the Parisian monument might find this particularly touching ...

Would You Wear: Wendy Nichol’s Horse Hair Necklace?

Generally, we tend to think that hair belongs where it came from: On your head or on your pubes and nowhere else. But thanks to crazies like Lady Gaga, who has been waltzing around town with dresses and hats made of human hair, it would seem that's all changing. Case in point: This Wendy Nichol…

Would You Wear: Pendleton For Opening Ceremony

Time for another round of Would You Wear. Today, we're debating Pendleton's collection for Opening Ceremony. Julie says she loves this stuff "in a huge way." As for me, I secretly like the iconic American textile look, but probably wouldn't wear it out in public (the onesie is a bit extreme for me). What do…

Would You Wear: Velvet Shorts In Winter?

The tights-and-shorts combo in winter isn't for everyone. Personally, I've been a fan since I was a kid, but have specific requirements (heavy wool or tweed fabrics, dark colors). When I saw these Madewell by Alexa Chung shorts, I was brought back to the late '90s when crushed velvet was all the rage, and yup,…

Would You Wear: The Vulcan Hoodie?

Nerd alert! Check out this Vulcan Hoodie—it's a zip-up sweatshirt with an image of a hand, which transforms into the Vulcan salute when unzipped. Would you wear this? If you did, you'd sure make Spock proud. [Incredible Things]…
