Some turbans will make you look like Disney’s Aladdin, while others will make you look like Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard.
If our humidity-stricken hair has taught us anything this summer, it’s that you must be creative when it comes to keeping your tresses under your own supremacy. Whether it be adorning our hair with tactfully tied scarves or teasing it until our volume is impressively in place, we’ve come up with 12 humidity-masking hair tricks that make a lot more sense than a $50 blowout. Your mane and wallet can thank us later.
Just ’cause there’s crystal-dusted crinoline all over our screens doesn’t mean we can’t focus on the details. Beyond Haute Couture’s silk tulle Art Nouveau curtains are some accessories demanding some serious attention of their own, and this isn’t the season to laud modesty.
The fashion crowd is never fully dressed without their accessories. For every wow-worthy outfit moment on the streets of Couture Fashion Week, there was a statement-making pair of heels, jewels, or an enviable bag behind it. The proof is all right here — from a cheeky Charlotte Olympia clutch to a bold pair of lace-up heels, the accessories were as distinct as the showgoers. Just click through for a closer look at the style set’s coolest supporting details.
For starters, Eva Mendes is so beautiful it hurts. Secondly, we were especially taken with her red carpet-to-casual transition of the head wrap. See how you can score Eva’s look (sorry, her beauty secrets are not included) with these accessible options.
There may not be a single star-spangled banner amongst the merch carried by new e-commerce site Anthem Wares, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sing its praises loud and clear.
Vogue Japan editor and street style icon Anna Dello Russo is collaborating on an accessories line with H&M, and its release date fast approaches. You’ve already seen the campaign video, but now the look book is here, and we have lots of details.
Until now, Nicola Formichetti has stayed away from designing bags for Mugler. In his fourth collection for the label, set to show during Paris Fashion Week on September 6, the 35-year-old designer is reportedly sending out designs from his new handbag collection.
Colorblocking isn’t a particularly new trend, but it’s not going anywhere.
Last night at the State of the Union address, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed something we’ve been wondering about since the Golden Globes: Are headbands now a thing? The answer is yes. Yes, they are.
If you’re afraid the apocalypse is coming and you want to face it on the bleeding edge of fashion, you might be in luck. Accessory design students are starting to experiment with ways to incorporate life-saving devices into everything from purses to trench coats.
Call us old-fashioned or Southern, (or in Justin’s case, personally, both), but as far as we are concerned, the only pieces of jewelry acceptable for men are college rings, wedding bands and medically necessary identification bracelets. But that guideline hasn’t stopped some style-obsessed young guns from covering their wrists in colorful bracelets made of leather, stone and string — and The New York Times is endorsing this trend and encouraging it with what it must believe are cute little nicknames like “man-acle” and “macho-bangle.”
On Saturday in New York City, Korean pop star-turned-designer Sang A Im-Propp impressed again and, more importantly, made big moves on behalf of the Great Backback Comeback. Called the “Carry-All,” the bag can also be worn messenger style, and seems poised to become one of the most coveted user-friendly bags of the season. “I love its versatility,” the designer confides. “And women deserve that.”
On Wednesday, when the rest of us were busy buying ingredients to make dinner for families and friends, First Lady Michelle Obama and her family were busy serving the needs of others. They gave out bags of Thanksgiving essentials to families in need at Martha’s Table, a Washington-area organization dedicated to helping solve poverty. For the occasion, the first lady wore a cream sweater and a purple scarf trimmed in pearls. It’s the kind of accessory that’s easy to throw on and can turn a so-so outfit — like a simple cream sweater and slacks — into something spectacular looking in no time flat
Getting one’s ears pierced normally only comes with the promise of momentary pain and years of sparkly earlobes. But after 15-year-old Grace Etherington went to get her ears pierced she became paralyzed and lost her ability to speak and breathe on her own.
I may not need glasses for the purpose of improving my vision, but that will not stop me from playing the part with the right pair of frames. Take for example, Tom Ford’s collection of secretary-sexy lenses—die for them. Each striking pair will suavely update your look just like any other accessory…the fact that they aid one’s eyesight is just a bonus.
Once upon a time, my daily fashion newsletter—most commonly known as The Zoe Report or TZR—turned one year old. That’s right, today is The Zoe Report’s birthday! And what better way to celebrate than with a phenomenal footwear creation from the same designer I featured on day one (who could forget the Lola)? Fashionistas and gentleman, meet Brian Atwood’s Chain-Back Over-The-Knee Boots!
To kick off the month of August with a fashion bang, I have selected a stylish, statement-making piece from my dear friend (and CFDA-winning jeweler!) Alexis Bittar’s latest collection—a Tigers Eye Quartz Collar. Fitting right in with the rest of his over-the-top fall offerings, this necklace is crazy time!…aka ba-na-nas : )
There is nothing quite like a midsummer accessory pick-me-up to boost your wardrobe (and spirits!) from now through fall. Since we are prone to setting our sights first on footwear and jewelry, it can be easy to forget about other stylish outfit add-ons, like belts. To remind you all of just how ba-na-nas a belt can be, I picked out this wide leather cincher from Prada for today. D.I.E.
Australian Catholics are downright pissed off “after discovering rosary beads, symbols of devotion used in prayer, are being flaunted as a fashion statement,” The Sydney Sunday Telegraph reports.
