One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)
Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.
If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.
One of my favorite Spring 2010 fashion shows this year was D&G with their western wear inspired collection. Being from Calgary, Alberta, home to the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth," I see a lot of western wear during the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede. And most of it is tacky, ugly and ill fitting.
Whether you choose to wear a bikini or a one-piece, you're going to need a cover-up for going to the beach, or even just covering up a bit to avoid extreme sun exposure. Lucky for you there are some really cute options this year that will easily transition from the beach to the boardwalk (assuming you dry yourself up enough to avoid those pesky wet marks around your boobs...).
Last week I had a series of outfit mistakes, each one leaving me standing on a subway platform, sweating like a pig, wishing I could strip naked and put on something that wasn’t bringing on hot flashes like a menopausal woman.
With so many summer colors and patterns to choose from this year, it's hard to know what to pair them with. While you could pair the bright yellows, pretty pastels or the super popular turquoise with denim, khaki or another solid neutral, the bold black and white prints available this season are a more interesting way to go.
A few weeks ago Sarah Jessica Parker inspired Fashion Porn. This week, it's inspired by someone completely different. While doing my usual online browsing, I discovered Forever 21's "Inspired by La Roux" page. I've been drooling over pictures of Elly Jackson of La Roux's style.
As the temperature starts to rise, it's time to bare those legs, soak up a little vitamin D (just make sure to wear sunscreen!), and enjoy the lovely weather. Sure, you could wear shorts, but then you gotta deal with that whole "thighs rub together and shorts ride up" situation. Plus, skirts are way more fun, and a cuter, flirtier way to show off those gams.
One-pieces are totally in this summer, which has us happy as a clam since the past few weeks of finals have left no time for the gym and a lot of time for late-night food deliveries. For the first time since middle school we can actually feel sexy and trendy rockin' something at the pool that isn't a bikini (and doesn't give us uni-boob like a Speedo!).
