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. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing. More
Hey, it’s really nice outside in New York this week! Colder climes everywhere are just now coming out of the frost and even verging on lightweight coat weather… which is to say, it may be time for a Spring trench. The versatile, practical middle ground between winter coats and, uh, tank tops is also one of those eternally cool wardrobe essentials. So, we put together a bunch we like at a moderate price (plus one porny aspirational Burberry, of course).
Thus, cute Spring trench coats in a variety of colors and shapes, all under $200. More
Big brands steal from small, local artists and designers all the time. Forever 21 does it so often that they’ve pretty much accepted doling out large settlements as just one more part of the cost of doing business, like fabric, shoplifted stock, or underpaid child laborers. But it’s still kind of shocking when a brand does it this brazenly to someone. More
Fashion Week has come and gone, which leaves us to pluck out and organize the meaningful data. Spring 2012 was about a lot of things (prints! peplums! citrus shades and cutouts!) but it seemed like every catwalk hosted at least one piece in saturated blue, in all shapes and silhouettes. …Luckily, this is one trend that looks lovely on just about everyone. Here’s all the cobalt, ultramarine, and aqua that ruled the runways. More
I’ve never been to a garden party but I figure, if you were to attend one, you’d need a light, white (maybe eyelet?) dress and a soft, featherweight cardigan. So, for those of you who can handle (maybe even enjoy) direct sunlight, here are some light Spring-appropriate cardigans, perfect for warming weather that hasn’t yet begun to swelter. More
