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.
Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t sleep: between his many designing duties (Chanel, Fendi, Lagerfeld) and collaborations (Macy’s Impulse), the man’s also a full-time fashion photographer, makes everything from wine labels to perfumes and has to devote an hour or two a day to hating ugly children. Still, he managed to fire off another collection: this time for online shopping powerhouse Net-A-Porter.
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
At the expensive of sounding like a complete bore: Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Darling > Hannah Montana and every other tween star that’s been churned out at Disney in the past, I don’t know, ten years? Clarissa was a smart, outspoken weirdo who dressed like a crazy person… in other words, an excellent hero for little girls. Let’s celebrate her gonzo style and remember quality children’s television.

The simple sundress has been a staple in summer wardrobes for years, but many women (of all ages) seem to have trouble finding ones that flatter the shape of their body over time. That balance (of an everyday essential and something that flatters different ages) is hard to maintain in many pieces, but here are a few sundresses–ranging from the graphic and eye-catching for teens to the sophisticated and lovely 50s–to help you beat the heat (and look fantastic while doing so) for any age.
Terry Zwigoff’s Ghost World (based on Daniel Clowes’ comic of the same name) follows two alienated teenage buddies, Rebecca and Enid, who’ve just graduated high school and drift around their small anonymous American town trying to figure out life stuff. …They don’t. Well, Rebecca (a teenage Scarlett Johansson) gets a job and begins taking on new responsibilities, which Enid resents and dyes her hair and then ends up just running away. But Enid is a pretty cool central character when you too are a self-centered, disaffected teenage girl. So, thanks Enid. Thank you and your many animal prints. 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!

The boatneck sweater and hankerchief around the neck is just a gimmick, don’t even think about it. Seriously. More

We’ve recently experienced a pretty intense heatwave and, unfortunately, most days you can’t just sit in a kitchen with your head in the freezer. For a lot of New Yorkers, going to work means time spent in punishing heat on subway platforms and suffocating under BO on trains. Thus, staying stylish–while forgoing obvious hot weather staples like tanks and shorts–is a challenge. In response to all this sweating of late, we’ve put together a shopping guide of ways to beat the heat while staying pulled together. More
