Arbiter of movements in complicated nail art and Manic Pixie Dream Girl hairstyles, Tumblr, has released its annual list of the most reblogged fashion trends of 2013.
There’s certainly much to be said for North Korea’s “take no prisoners tailoring,” but can camouflage pants really hold a candle to Carrie Bradshaw‘s sexed-up Arabian Chic semi-keffiyeh?
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. Yep, we’re talking winter fashion in NYC.
So it turns out Rita Ora isn’t the new face of Chanel. The singer’s Midnight in Paris moment with Karl Lagerfeld was instead a shoot for the cover of French magazine Liberation, on which she wears a jacket, a big smile and a ginormous antler ear mask.
Well there’s a question we never thought we’d pose. But here we are, comparing the two ladies in the season’s latest weird trend: A statement necklace worn as a shirt.
Saying Birkenstocks are back is like saying Miley Cyrus likes to lick things. But even the exponentially increasing number of Birks (not the bag) we’ve spotted in Dean & DeLuca over the last few months couldn’t have possibly prepared us for the double-strapped sandal’s sportier, velco-loving, more unfortunate-looking cousin — the Teva.
Three weeks ago we noted that the New York runways were full of DIY accessory inspiration, and it appears even the glitzier cities are hotbeds of improvisational finesse.
Ciao, Milano! It was grand. We watched the Prada, we marveled at the great gilded peacock Anna Dello Russo, we bid Carine Roitfeld bon anniversaire and we learned the chic potential of furry neck braces. We were also given a much-needed jolt of mid-Fashion Month energy courtesy of Milan’s kaleidoscopic runways.
We’re fully aware of the big role control briefs play on the red carpet. Sometimes people even wear multiple pairs at one time! And while we dig it when stars come forth and admit their enviable award show figures are not solely due to Pilates and liquid dinners, there are ways to do this and ways to not do it.
And just like that, London Fashion Week is over. It came, it swathed our eyes in gauzy chiffons and twinkling embellishments, and it left like a good dream abruptly ended by having your feather duvet ripped off on a chilly fall morning.
In his new book Asylum Simon Doonan throws fashion people into the same boat as mental hospital inpatients who detect trends when there are none. But sometimes we don’t so much try to create a trend as we do try to ignore one when it’s staring us right in the face. This is what we have been doing for the last few days with one of the more frightening things to come out of Fashion Month so far – skirts over pants.
While we consider ourselves patriotic, on days like today, we don’t want to be among the herds wearing cheap American flag regalia, preferring a more subtle approach to showing our stripes — stripes being the key world.
It’s more is more for many designers this resort season, who are taking the #blingring hype and sprinting with it. And we’re not complaining – there’s something about ostentatious embellishment that plays to our inner child while making our inner Anna Dello Russo ravenous.
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.
Men love ‘em, women hate ‘em, and only a select few can actually pull them off. In this episode of #CandidlyNicole, Richie explores the confounding trend while helping a friend find a perfect first-date look.
One of the big fall trends is being “lesbian chic”, according to everyone’s go-to Style.com.
Here’s the thing about the red carpet at the Oscars: Because it’s the most important award show there is, people look there more than any other place for inspiration when it comes time to get all dolled up. So if you see something on the red carpet more than a few times — even if it’s just a dress with one shoulder — you should probably pay attention.
You can’t really think of Spring without thinking of florals — and in addition to wearing the print on dresses and tops, we’re loving the way it looks in a pant too.
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.
Corduroys can be a lot of things, but when you add a little color, they’re anything but boring. As the leaves start to fall, and the sun begins to set earlier and earlier, we have to look to the little things — like bright yellow pants — to cheer us up. Sure, bold color can be nothing short of intimidating, but when balanced with neutrals and playful patterns, these bright bottoms will add a little pep to your step.
