Nothing looks more effortlessly polished than a blow out, and adding some matte texture makes the look modern sleek. Some people are intimidated by blow outs–they feel like they can’t get the technique down perfectly. Luckily, a few tips and … More
As Fashion Month draws to a close, we must pick up the pieces and filter out the relevant information. So far, we know the Spring 2014 collections were all very Spring-y, the front rows were all very famous, and the models were all very white.
But! There were still surprises to be found in New York, London, Paris and Milan, as the accessories stole the show time and time again. Here’s 35 of the craziest, boldest, statement-making hats* and headgear from Fashion Month, from flower garlands to gothic cowboy hats to whatever that is up there. More
Fashion Month is drawing to a close, which means we’ve seen plenty of trends, much ridiculous street style, lots of famous people–you know, the usual Fashion Month works. By now we’ve had enough time to sift through the thousands of photos to bring you a selection of some very amazing (but often completely crazy) jewelry as seen on the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Here are the biggest and boldest necklaces, bracelets, cuffs and, uh, headgear from Fashion Month–”statement jewelry” is putting it lightly. More
Sorry, fashion week. More
Don’t worry, it’s an investment piece. We’re sure you’ll get a lot of wear out of this $8,050 leopard, fringe, and crocodile-embossed faux leather dress. (You don’t get real leather for less than $10,000.) More
Between New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week, there are lots of amazing(ly weird) looks that you can wear for Halloween, should you stumble upon a boatload of cash, then decide to spend it on a high fashion costume that everyone will just assume is from Leg Avenue anyway and will likely get covered in fun size candy residue and “pumpkin beer” (which is really just orange soda and vodka).

Everything is embarrassing. More
When I go to Fashion Week, my partner is left home alone for nine days. I asked what he did while I was gone, and he sent me back a pretty strange list. More
There were a lot of trends on view at NYFW this past week: from obvious Spring choices like pastel colors and bright citrus shades to (possibly unrealistic?) all white ensembles and graphic handbags (along with much maligned trends we’d love to see go away forever like peplums and crop tops).
But the trend that landed on nearly every runway?
Can you guess? More
The hair at NYFW was pretty restrained all week–with lots of designers showing simple side parts and effortless, softly waving hair.
But a few shows turned out the old runway tricks–giant, voluminous curls, Heidi braids, eye-catching accessories and some very beautiful details woven in. Here’s a sampling of some of our favorites… More
It’s Friday! Time to kick back, crack a beer and take a look back on the craziness that was New York Fashion Week. More
Of all the whacky, weird stuff that go on during Fashion Week, this one takes the cake (er, sandwich?) (er, worst pun ever?). The Subway SUBtemper Project Subway show took place to showcase a variety of absurd fashion “pieces,” including evening gowns made entirely of napkins, collars of the same, Subway Viking boob wrappers and more. It was epic, if by “epic” I meant “effing insane.” More
I can’t buy George Costanza‘s clothes because I’m a student. :( More
Even though NYFW is known for its outrageous street style bait techniques, the shows themselves are a pretty staid affair compared to Paris and Milan (especially, of course, the couture shows).
While it’s a consistent criticism of New York that homegrown designers don’t experiment enough, we saw some pretty valiant experimentation at the Spring 2014 shows–which occasionally resulted in balls out crazy, too.
Don’t believe us? Here’s what we mean… More
