Okay, look: printed jeans (and cords and trousers) are verging on annoying trend territory (maybe not far off trends-that-need-to-die territory) but the fact of the matter is… we love them. We love them a lot. They are surprisingly versatile, incredibly easy to style–a solid color top and cool ankle boots, you say?–and they look so fresh. Which is to say, even if they seem dated in six months, we won’t care because we’ll still be wearing them. Here’s a bunch of good ones, starting at $24.80 and topping out around $400. More
Well, the wait is finally over — we now know what Kate Middleton will wear to welcome the Olympic Games to her kingdom! More
Did you know your beloved tapered pants are slowly draining the life out of you like a sexy, slimming anaconda? It’s true; the Wall Street Journal said so. Furthermore, did you know there are loads of even worse things coming that will kill you even faster and more effectively? Trends are great like that, always trying to top each other. Here are ten articles of clothing (both currently popular, and coming in 2013) that will almost definitely inflict severe harm on that frail physical vessel you call a body. You’ve been warned. More
I’ve spent almost my entire life living smack dab in the middle of fly-over territory. That’s right, when the first in-flight movie ends as you’re travelling between NYC and LA, look down and wave. I’ll feel the love.
So in my nice little town, I’m sure you can imagine that fashion have the influence that it does in bigger cities.

I’m currently wearing a respectable pair of Michael Kors brown leather boots that I got on sale at Zappos. This apparently makes me one of the most fashionable women in my city. Seriously. More
As if it’s not hard enough to figure out how to express yourself eloquently through your clothing in college, Mormon university Brigham and Young-Idaho recently put the smack down on a woman wearing a pair of skinny jeans, then quickly reneged. More
We recently went to an NYDJ event where we got our first pair of colored jeans (and you can get a pair, too, if you like us on Facebook. Go here!) They’re really pretty! Now they hang in my closet, where I stare at them and ask them questions like “colored jeans, how can I wear you and look neither like a hipster nor a merciless carricature of the entire 1980′s?” The jeans don’t say anything, because they’re going through a difficult phase (that’s a polite way of saying they’re assholes who never take our calls, just hang out all day, drinking, probably). Since the jeans themselves offer no useful advice, we’ve come up with some theories you might find helpful. More
It’s time to let go of your beloved indigo washes… summer is here, the humidity is here, and it’s time to change out your darks for lightweight sky blues, grays, and maybe a print or two. Here’s some solid summer denim. More
