-Written By Intern Zaquana. You read that right. Ugly shoe are making a comeback in stores and are marching their way right back into many of our wardrobes.

Over the past five years, street style photography has gone from creepy to trendy to completely unavoidable.  In fact, street style photogs swarmed the most recent Fashion Weeks in such droves that some bloggers and show attendees compared them to paparazzi.  But, regardless of your opinions on those […]

Trend Report: Pattern Mixing

Credit 1, 2, 3 Pattern mixing is making a come-back for the fall/winter season, but this time around it’s simply not enough to mix two patterns such as florals and polka dots, but rather it’s all about mixing the same pattern within one ensemble. Whether it’s polka dots, stripes, tartan, or florals, the trend is […]

Trend Report: Thigh High Slits

Credit 1, 2, 3 A twist on the maxi skirts we’ve seen in the past year, designers were injecting a dose of sex appeal back into the demure length with thigh-high slits. This look is a sexy alternative to the mini, where you still have a chance to flash a length of leg but still […]

Trend Report: Polka Dots

Credit 1, 2, 3   Stripes are classic and leopard print is last season, the new quirky pattern du jour is the polka dot. Think of it as the stripes fun-loving cousin. Whatever your style there’s a polka dot for you, from large graphic, retro pin dots, classic black and white to club-kid neon.

Trend Report: Fur Accessories

Credit 1, 2, 3 It may be springtime, but Fall 2011 lines are releasing lookbooks. Every winter is a bonanza of fur: it’s soft, warm, comforting and looks incredibly luxe. So hold onto those fur boots, vests and coats from the 2010 season, they aren’t going anywhere. The twist for the 2011 season is the […]

Trend Report: Red Pants

Credit 1, 2, 3 A blogger and fashion editor’s darling this season is the red pant. Whether skinny, cropped, flared, trouser or for the pants shy, a skirt, that flash of red enlivens a season of creams and tans. It’s an easy, fun and flirty way to update your wardrobe, so just pick a silhouette […]

Trend Report: Menswear

Credit 1, 2, 3 Designers decided to channel Annie Hall and dress women in menswear inspired ensembles for Spring. A perennial trend, there is simply nothing as sexy as a woman in a man’s clothing. In my opinion the masculinity just highlights the femininity of the wearer, and the kind of confidence needed to join the boys […]

Trend Report: Neon

Credit 1, 2, 3 For that futuristic wow-factor, nothing really beats neon. Perfect for nights out but also as day wear, designers went bold and bright in a rainbow of electric hues. A fresh way to wear neon is in one bold swatch as seen above. Of course, neon accessories can take any outfit from […]

Trend Report: Denim

Credit 1, 2, 3 America’s favorite fabric is big in a whole new way for spring. While denim has been acid-washed, sand-blasted and shredded within an inch of its life in the past decade, for spring we’re looking at a new clean, minimalist look at denim. Whether you use it for tops, skirts, jumpsuits and […]

Trend Report: Tassel Belts

Credit 1, 2, 3 A fun accessory with a nod to the Orient, the tassel belts, in obi or skinny styles were a perfect compliment to the decadent 70s wear. The only rules to wearing these belts is to keep it at your natural waist (for figure flattery reasons) and wear them with a heaping dose of confidence.

Trend Report: Orange

Credit 1, 2, 3 One of the punchiest and hottest hues for spring is coral’s close cousin, orange. While all of the zesty colors are definitely in for summer (think grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, lime green…) orange has been popping up everywhere. Unlike coral however, this can be one tricky shade to pull off, and […]

Trend Report: Tropical Prints

Credit 1, 2, 3 While we always see florals for spring (“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Thank you, Miranda Priestly) this season we are also seeing lots of fabulously tutti-frutti patterns. Wear these patterns loud and proud, either by themselves as a statement piece, or try your hand at mixing them with other patterns such as […]

Trend Report: Bra Tops

Credit 1, 2, 3 So this is definitely one trend that your mom is going to hate. After a few seasons of crop tops, designers have upped the ante and debuted the bra top. Too keep this look from being too hoochy, pair it with a full skirt or slouchy pants that cover the knee […]

Trend Report: Tea Skirts

Credit 1, 2, 3 Am I the only person who is excited for the return of longer skirts? I have a few maxi dresses that are the equivalent of pajamas to me that I can wear to class and work, so I’m super stoked that they are back in style. Time to buy up a […]

Trend Report: Color Blocking

Credit 1, 2, 3 There’s just something about spring that brings out all of the peacocks of fashion. So one trend that we saw on the runways was color, color and more color! Even more trendy was putting all of those colors together in one outfit in large bold swatches, aka color blocking. So how […]
