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. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing. More »

NYFW Rundown: Celebs Wear Their Front Row Finest For The First Half Of Fashion Week

NYFW Rundown: Celebs Wear Their Front Row Finest For The First Half Of Fashion Week

Celebrities love fashion week. Not just because they get wined and dined, sit front row, skip all the lines and leave loaded down with freebies–but because they get press, for the simple act of wearing clothes. Their outfits don’t have to be inventive, interesting or even stylish–if they’re famous and anywhere within a stone’s throw of Linc Center or Milk, they’ll get photographed. For dayz.

And we’ll contribute to the problem! More »

Will You Be Buying A Leather Dress Next Fall?

Will You Be Buying A Leather Dress Next Fall?

Fashion Week happened, as you know, and now we begin the pick-up part of the season, where we root through the collections and decipher trends in color, texture, print, silhouette, etc. One Fall-appropriate hit: leather, especially dresses. They were tight and sexy at Cushnie et Ochs, cool and voluminous at Cynthia Rowley and surprisingly ladylike at Rachel Comey. They cropped up at Peter Som, Thakoon, even Marc Jacobs did a few.

A leather dress will go great with the rest of your urban warrior costume but… aren’t they still really sweaty? And they bunch in such unflattering ways! And it’s hard to pull off a heavy texture like that. Here’s a few of the different styles we saw at NYFW, let us know if you’ll be headed that direction next Fall.

Fashion Week’s Biggest Trends: The 3 Kinds Of Prints That Will Rule Spring

Fashion Week's Biggest Trends: The 3 Kinds Of Prints That Will Rule Spring

Spring is the time for prints: florals, usually, and this past fashion week saw some weirdo forays into Hawaiian. However, three of the biggest trends to emerge for prints weren’t actually about flowers: we saw geometric patterns, plenty of ombre and animals. …I don’t mean leopard spots or tiger stripes, but prints of animals: birds, butterflies, even a few zebras. Let’s take a look. More »

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rachel Comey Spring 2012 Was This Awesome Printed Dress

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rachel Comey Spring 2012 Was This Awesome Printed Dress

I’ll probably never be cool enough to wear a dress like this, but a girl can dream: behold the awesome, abstract shoreline print that came down the runway at Rachel Comey’s great show. The cut (especially the neckline) of the dress is already such a strong argument for minimalism, but throwing on that insanely great print knocks it out of the park. More »

Designer Showdown: Vote For Yigal Azrouel Or Rachel Comey In This Blue + Beige Face-Off

Designer Showdown: Vote For Yigal Azrouel Or Rachel Comey In This Blue + Beige Face-Off

One of the most unmistakeable trends to have emerged for Spring 2012 is cobalt. Cobalt is everywhere this fashion week: minis, gowns, outerwear and especially trousers. While sifting through all the runway galleries for trends, we couldn’t help but feel a bit of deja vu when we came across Yigal Azrouel’s collection and Rachel Comey’s in short succession. Here, both designers send cobalt trousers down the runway and both pair the rich shade with restrained sandy beige… but Yigal’s look is all Celine-y simplicity, and Comey does downtown cool. The question is: which do you prefer? More »

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of ‘A League Of Their Own’

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of 'A League Of Their Own'

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?

12 Striking Prints To Jolt Your Wardrobe… All Under $200

12 Striking Prints To Jolt Your Wardrobe... All Under $200

If there’s one major trend we saw on the Fall 2011 runways at NYFW, it was… prints. By which we mean prints on everything. Abstract prints, geometric prints, criss-crossing lines, bright and graphic prints splashed across skirts, sweaters, dresses and especially pants (but we’ll get to that). In the interim, we scoured the internet for printed pieces with a touch of what we saw on the catwalk. As always, we tried to keep the pricepoints as accessible as we’re able. More »
