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.
Color us shocked! The spring runways shows and presentations that kicked off New York Fashion Week have already set commenters into a tizzy about a new age of polished refinement. And who can we thank for starting this new epoch in the way women dress? Everyone’s favorite Duchess, Kate Middleton.
If you only take one piece of advice from us, let it be this: accessories make an outfit. And while we’re usually all about bargain buys, some things deserve a few extra bucks for quality. One of those things is jewelry.
Move over pastel, neon is this summer’s palette of choice. From the runways of New York to Milan, neon pieces have been brightening up simple looks or making statements with neon-on-neon layering. But for those of us who don’t look as good in head-to-toe shades of highligher, we’ve collected a plethora of neon belts, skirts, jewelry, shoes, and bags to keep you looking chic without looking like you had an unfortunate run-in with a Spacemaker during finals week.
No longer relegated to holiday parties alone, shiny knits are making a comeback in a big way this season. Seen on models and fashion-folk alike, sequins and sparkles galore glam up a simple look or add some extra zest into an eye-catching outfit. From gold, to silver, to sequins, to bronze, to gunmetal, we’ve found the best in metallics to compliment your summer wardrobe.
Celebrities are good for a lot of things: entertainment, gossip, and — our personal favorite — style. Hollywood’s elite have the opportunity to wear some of the chicest, most beautiful, and most expensive clothing in the known-universe, allowing them not only to showcase trends, but also create them. So when we noticed that celebrity after celebrity was spotted sporting a feminized take on cap toe shoes, we realized we had a footwear frenzy on our hands.
Who wears short skirts? Not us, especially not after Paris Haute Couture Week‘s overwhelming display of below-the-knee silhouettes. From Jean Paul Gaultier to Armani Prive to Chanel, shrouded legs ran amuck. With the maxi dress’ epic rise to becoming this summer’s most coveted item, longer hemlines are here to stay, making the midi-skirt a trend that has inevitably followed suit.
While there are plenty of reasons to not like Lauren Conrad (reality shows, tonedeaf advice articles for Forbes), it’s pretty hard to hate on her hair. It’s thick, it’s shiny, and while it it runs the gamut from brown to blonde to ombre brond, it always looks good. That said, like Conrad’s “character” on The Hills, it’s also ever so slightly boring. Until now.
In recent years, leopard-print has seemingly taken over the world. From Sarah Palin’s footwear, to Kate Moss’ living room, to, well, Nicki Minaj’s entire body, leopard rules the animal-print kingdom — or does it? With the meteoric rise to fame of the leopard-print-loving Snooki and her fellow guidettes, leopard has fallen out of favor with the fashion elite, clearing the way for a new animal-print trend: snakeskin.
Remember when wearing a see-through dress was a fashion faux-pas? Those days are long gone now that transparency is one of this season’s hottest — and most revealing — trends.
We’re all about multi-tasking, which is why we think the scarf might just be the world’s most versatile accessory. You can wear it as a hair-tie, a belt, a shawl, or even a top and either way you’ll look chic and effortless. But the best scarves add some printed panache with their drapey flair, which is why we rounded up our five favorites to share with you — and offered up our thoughts on how to style them.
From Anne Hathaway‘s Academy Award tux to fresh-faced Hailee Steinfeld‘s embellished suit, it seems like women just can’t get enough menswear.
Would you pay $300 to have a nail technician apply snakeskin to your toes in the most meticulous manner ever? That’s what some women are doing to stay on top of the latest thing for spring, the python pedicure. Because, seriously, why not?
There’s no shortage of strange bedfellows in the fashion industry, but that didn’t stop us from scratching our heads last night when we discovered that J.Press had partnered with Urban Outfitters.
