Okay, allow us to come clean: we think sneaker wedges are horrible. Absolutely dreadful. We first saw them at NYFW a few years ago and thought, “Those won’t last more than a season.” Aaaaaaaaand, we were super fucking wrong. But we still hate them.
However, the recent release of Daddy’$ Money–Sketcher’s take on sneaker wedges that sets women back more than a few decades–moved us to compile a shopping guide of alternatives. This way, no one has to support unbelievably sexist marketing/bad taste in the name of owning sporty horse hooves.
In a surprising twist, we found some of them kind of almost okay. More
Thanksgiving is about two things: trying not to argue with your family and eating your face off. Sometimes those overlap!
Oh, Thanksgiving is also about pretty autumn colors like cranberry, pumpkin, wines and plums. Here, we have assembled a gallery of under $300 dresses (with a wide range of prices) that are nice enough for a formal dinner occasion but forgiving enough to account for that delicious third helping of stuffing. Please note that if you’re not embarrassed of your Thanksgiving potbelly, by all means buy a bodycon dress and own it.
For the rest of us–who go a little too overboard–here’s a handy guide to empire waists, generous cuts and shirt dresses with removable belts.
Here I am at the first day of NYFW in a rain coat with an umbrella… where it’s a sunny 76°F. No matter, thanks to Weather.com and its web of deceit, I’m in an appropriately gloomy (and sweaty!) mood to select some Fall jacket inspiration. More
Resort 2011 broadcast a lot of neon: the glowing accessories trend logged major runway time at Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler and more. The thing about neon is that it presents a problem (ugliness) if there’s too much, but it’s a perfect eye-popping accessory or simple piece–shorts or a tee– if your palette is otherwise muted. Here’s a few easy neon items to jolt your warm-weather look. More
In honor of Bastille Day, celebrations have been arranged, baguettes have been bought, and berets have been adjusted from boring to chic (THAT’S FRENCH FOR FASHIONABLE) by tilting them to the sides of our heads! We have put together a little guide to help you dress the part of the perfect Parisian and avoid any fashion faux pas. The boatneck sweater and hankerchief around the neck is just a gimmick, don’t even think about it. Seriously. More
Stripes are everywhere right now. Here are some good bets in the breezy summer look from affordable styles starting at $20 and right up the chain to A.L.C., Rag & Bone, Graeme Armour and more. 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
Last week Jennifer and I were figuring out some upcoming Friday Style Icons because I didn’t want every week to be about mining ’90s movies I liked as a child. And we immediately concluded, Let’s do A League of Their Own! Unfortunately, A League of Their Own is the opposite of what we were trying to do. So I did a gallery of awesome Chloe Sevigny looks. This week, as we were compiling stuff for our tribute to the ladysports classics, intrepid intern Jill was like, “Just like Nylon!” and we were like, “WHAA?” Then she broke our fucking hearts by showing us a spread in this month’s Nylon about makeup inspired by A League of Their Own. Since we’d already gotten a bunch of images together, we were like, fuck it, it’s okay, people can accept that two separate entities arrived at the same obscure idea independently. Right? Right? More
I was trying to find something whimsical for The Score that would sate my want of Hayden-Harnett’s Fantasia bags; something that felt a little odd and a little fantastical. I was psyched on this Rachel Comey piece in baby alpaca fur: a dainty little bag with a retro feminine clasp and a long velvet ribbon as a shoulder strap. And even better, More
Maison Martin Margiela is one of the most mysterious designers in the fashion world today. The Belgian designer who started the line keeps an extremely low profile and I just found out that he actually never allows his picture to … More
