Whitney Port, ex-“Hill’s” star and current star of “The City,” recently showed her newest Whitney Eve collection at the Fresh Faces in Fashion event in Miami, FL. Co-star Lauren Conrad has proven to us all that just because someone dresses well or has trendy personal style, does not make them a good designer.
I really thought that this trend was going to die last year, but apparently, I really missed it on that call. From what I have seen so far from the runways and red carpets, sheer is back for spring. And I’m not just talking sheer here – I’m talking “hello world, here’s my bra” no tank top, sheer.
New York & Co. and Express both sell clothes that most would consider “Business Casual/Professional Wear” and “Evening Wear.” And while you may not by your ridiculously sexy homecoming dress there, if you want to look sophisticated, sexy and like a grown up, these two stores are contending for your money.
Last night’s episode of Project Runway made me realize three things: 1. When models aren’t walking the runway, they have zero sense of personal style. 2. Many of the designers on this season of PR would make great designers for Delias. 3. I should have had one more drink at happy hour.
I’ll admit it: I may be one of the only people who looks forward to fashion week more than Welcome Week. But you know that when you come out of your week-long drunken haze and find yourself bored in class, you will need to preoccupy that boring class time with other thoughts.
You know what they say in baseball: “Three strikes, and you’re out!” And now we know the same is true in Project Runway. But more on that later. First let's discuss Tim Gunn in flip flops and Wayfarers.
An exposed zipper was a must-have this spring, and the trend will continue to be hot this fall. It's very edgy and chic - we love the floral dress with an exposed zipper from MINKPINK below because it's the perfect balance of pretty and punk. Here are a few ideas on how to wear the look this fall:u
This Fall it’s all about affordable designer collaborations like Anna Sui for Target, Max Azria for Walmart and Christian Siriano for Payless. Yes, I said Payless. As in, Payless where you used to get your penny-loafers and light up sneakers as a kid. That Payless. I must admit - I was skeptical at first, but with Christian Siriano behind it, how can I expect it to be anything less than “fierce”?
Leggings are already a wardrobe staple, but this fall they will make a statement with metallic hues, embellishments, cut-outs, and bright prints. Leather leggings were everywhere during fall fashion shows, and ripped and printed looks are quickly becoming a popular trend.
Usually I hate when things happen ahead of season, like when Halloween stuff starts popping up in August, or when Christmas decorations are everywhere in September. In general it is just plain wrong. I don’t need a blow up outdoor Santa snow globe before Halloween has even passed. Actually, I don’t need one of those at all. Ever.
Nude is one of the hottest colors of this summer. The nude skirt is definitely an "it" item, as seen in the collections of designers like Phillip Lim (left, Style.com), Brian Reyes (center, Style.com), and Catherine Holstein (right, for sale at Saks.com). But where can you find this trend?
Here are my picks for cute, cheap and most-likely-to-be flattering shorts. High waisted and linen are great with wedges for day or night, bermudas are best worn with a high shoe, and colored bottoms are only for those who don't mind attention in that area. And for those hot, casual days - pair a casual short with a tank top, long necklace and some flip flops and you're good. to. go.
This year, full skirts were seen on the runways of designers like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Jason Wu. A full skirt will be a great investment this spring, since they can be worn throughout the summer and during fall. Feminine and sophisticated, this look is a great way to update your style to something more grown-up.
