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 was. What say you? [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »

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 boots as your significant other? Do you even like these boots?

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 then erase all the importance that comes with the power logo on your purchase. Unless … the customizable glasses become so recognizable that they become even higher status symbols? Or maybe people just want to wear them because they’re cute, which is a valid answer as well.

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 as some sort of fauxhemian going for the antiquated and obsolete because you’re just cool like that. (You still use your VHS and Walkman to look cool so why wouldn’t you use outdated eyewear technology?)

So what say ye, good fellows and ladies, to the monocle look? [The Curiosity Shoppe] Keep reading »

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 is … interesting. But they are a bit costume-y, and OK, rather unaffordable at $1,000. So, maybe not. [Shopbop] Keep reading »

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 pieces in blinding neon colors. (And of course, it comes with Opening Ceremony prices, so it’s not cheap.) The designs are pretty kooky, and yet … there is something vaguely edgy-minimalist about them that we’re kind of liking. What about you—would you wear Opening Ceremony’s “Tron” collection?

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 makes this version so great is the color and texture of the faux fur as well as the details it has taken from its higher priced partner: strap and buckle details, the chunky platform pointy toe, and a great shaped sexy heel. A fantastic take on a high-end look. So, tell us — would you wear this trend or do you think it’s one to be left to the Eskimos? [1.

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] Keep reading »

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 different. Of course there are downsides: it’s big and bulky, it doesn’t give your hands protection if you actually need to use them, and it’s different. (Too different?) Would you wear a muff? Let us know!

Would You Wear: The Eiffel Tower Engagement Ring?

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 … or tacky? Sound off in the comments below! [New York Times] Keep reading »
