5 Of The Biggest Color Trends For Spring 2014 From NYFW

5 Of The Biggest Color Trends For Spring 2014 From NYFW

Here at The Gloss, we tend to shy away from the too-common bullying language of many fashion publications–5 Designer Items You Need Right Now! 5 Bags Everyone Will Have!, etc–because it’s unrealistic and obnoxious (no one needs a designer anything, for one).

However, for those of you who like following fashion but feel no obligation to spend a month’s rent on a damn handbag, one very easy way to translate the runway to your regular old wardrobe is with color. By incorporating the season’s biggest shades–whether through recycling stuff you already have or buying something new–you’ll achieve roughly the same effect as wearing trendy, eye-catching (and super expensive) runway pieces.

30 Delightful (And Wearable!) Shoes From NYFW's Spring '14 Collections

Fashion Week has but two days left! We’ve seen a lot of the expected for Spring 2014–bright citrus colors, florals, white looks, unfortunate crop tops and more unfortunate peplums–and a little of the refreshing (trapeze tops! swing coats!).

Are you hearing that Diane von Furstenberg as never met a woman who is not strong and tinking to yourself, “Goodness, I am barely strong enough to contract my muscles in a way that allows me to hold one her wrap dresses on my body in a decent fashion?” Can you even contract muscles to keep wrap dresses from flying open?

CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg Writes Letter Urging Designers To Take Charge Of Factory Safety

It has not been a month of good publicity for the fashion industry. First, a factory supplying many major brands had one of the worst industrial accidents of all time, killing more than 1,000 people. Then, the industry was unable to come together on an agreement to ensure better safety regulations be put into place. Now, CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg has written a letter urging the designers themselves to pay better attention to what’s going on in the factories where their clothes are made. More »

Red Carpet Rundown: The Many Fashion Non-Disasters Of The Glamour Woman Of The Year Awards

Earlier today, Ashley told you about the many fashion disasters that occurred at the Twilight premiere, and you laughed and laughed at Kristen Stewart for showing us her underpants. The good news is that some people do know how to dress themselves (or at least hire a decent stylist), and they were all at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards. Let’s look at the pretty dresses and try to ignore the fact that they gave Lena Dunham something called the “Voice Of A Generation” award, which she presumably accepted instead of saying “that’s something my character said about herself while she was on drugs, guys.
