If you haven’t caught on by now, it’s official: I’m smitten with all things military-inspired. Despite the short summer season,...
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.
It's that time of year again - the time to start hunting for summer jobs or internships (if you haven't already), or start hunting for job or internship wardrobes (if you've already secured the gig). If you're working in an office or a professional environment chances are you're going to need to pick up a few pieces. Contrary to what some people think, Uggs and flip flops are not acceptable at most office jobs.
The countdown to spring continues. Only three (fingers crossed) more weeks to go! As my school's spring break was last week, I am currently enviously admiring the tans of my classmates lucky enough to flee warmer weather. With most American schools still weeks away from break, now is the time to start thinking about what to wear.
Until the sun is shining and the temperature rises enough to expose the tops of my feet, I'm left admiring the plethora of flats retailers have to offer this year. With most shops carrying inexpensive options, it's easy to stock up on styles that fit with (and add some style to) all your favorite outfits. Flats are one of those items that can be worn to subtly incorporate a season's hottest trends.
Some of us are extremely frugal - we buy new clothes once a year and never let window displays tempt us into spending our food allowance on a new pair of heels. The rest of us set find ourselves failing miserably year after year as we break our news year's resolution of spending less money as a sale induced coma ends in yet another mini shopping spree.
When the weather outside gets frightful and bundling up seems quite delightful, the must-have accessory to keep you warm is a scarf. Not only perfect for keeping your neck warm (or covering up any unwanted marks left from last night), the scarf is also a chic way to add some oomph to your otherwise blah winter outfit.
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.
One pattern that has been hot this season is the floral print. Florals are no longer just for your grandmother's couch. Or housecoat. Or drapes. You get the point... There are many, many ways to embrace this trend. While you can go big with a loud, fabulous floral dress, if that's not your thing, you can go subtle with a floral accessory.
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?
High-end fashion brands like Brian Reyes and Louis Vuitton showcased several looks featuring big shoulders on the spring 2009 runways. While I'm not advocating stealing some eighties-style shoulder pads from (hopefully deep inside) your mom's closet, you can still rock the big shoulder trend.
