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: Guess Which Horrible Trend Will Not F*cking Die

NYFW: Guess Which Horrible Trend Will Not F*cking Die

We have bitched and moaned about peplums for nearly as long as we’ve been doing red carpet coverage–they bother us for a number of reasons, namely that they tend to be awkward, bulky and unflattering on women in the actual corporeal world (as opposed to the fantastical creatures forged at fashion week and paraded down the runway) and because they look so pointless. Just a bunch of unnecessary fabric, engulfing the wearer, serving no visual purpose. No wonder Kim Kardashian loves them.

…But looks like we better start loving them too, because if the current NYFW runways are any indication, they’re not going away anytime soon. Here’s what to expect from the trend next Spring. More »

NYFW Trends: Designers Weirdly Convinced That Real Women Will Wear Head-To-Toe White For Spring

We know that designers often imagine a specific kind of woman for each collection–but who is the woman that wears head-to-toe white? And, judging by the amount of solid white columns on the runways, they must think she’s out there in droves.

Let’s have a look at the permanent Spring trend–and, as fresh and alluring as many appear, just keep in mind the coffee stains… More »

13 Cool Summer Sale Items At Deep Discounts To Shop Right Now (All Under $150)

We are firm believers in never paying full price for anything. While it can be tempting to purchase current season stuff while it’s new and hot (and, well, practical weather-wise), we’d much rather wait until late summer/early Winter for crazy discounts on slightly older stock. Since everyone and their mother’s having a sale right now, we figured we’d round up a few current gems for you. Ahead, you’ll find all kinds of good summery stuff–dresses, tops, pants, accessories–and all of them under $150, including Rebecca Taylor, Helmut Lang, J Brand, A.P.C., Opening Ceremony and more.

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Is Tough/Pretty

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Is Tough/Pretty

Last Friday, Rebecca Taylor showed a watery collection featuring dewy skin and slicked-back hair. Yes, there were sequins and metallics, but the whole thing was so soft and muted… a few of the final looks even had an echo of Rodarte’s wheatfields in lovely cloud prints. I know “wearable” sounds like faint praise but as I watched this look come down the runway, all I could think was, “How can I go home and do this immediately?” More »

Gallery: Hawaiian Prints Are Trending At Spring 2012 Fashion Week

It always feels a little weird for summer to end, for fall to gear up and… here’s the fashion press all agape at bright prints on the Spring runways. Spring is the time for prints, of course, and non more than the floral variety, but here’s the current twist on a season-standard: Hawaiian. Yes, the formerly dorky print of choice for stoner Dads and hungover frat bros is getting revamped this season as something a little more downtown. Opening Ceremony wins this round for being so far ahead of the curve. More »
