  • Would You Ever Pay $1,100 for Tights? What If They Were Covered in Swarovski Crystals?

    by Danica Lo

    In my closet, I have one entire large drawer devoted to tights. They're mostly black, range from ultra-sheer to woolly and cashmere, and some of them are even a little bit fancy--I recently bought a pair that have cat ears on them, and can't wait to wear them out for the first time this holiday season.

    On average, though, save one pair of Wolfords, my tights probably cost about $6 to $8 a pop--I'll spend $10+ on embellished ones and anywhere between $2 and $5 on normal, everyday black hosiery.

    There will always be a special place in our hearts for Pez--the completely absurd and impractical oblong candy that children are somehow meant to be patient enough to dispense, one by one, from a creaky plastic spring-loaded drawer contraption--and a newly minted shoe designer Camilla Elphick, a Cordwainers College graduate, has tapped into our oral fixation.

    Elphick's "So Bad, It's Good" debut collection features Pez heels, Oreo-print ballet flats, and other delicious treats for your tootsies--all inspired by the work of artist Kent Christensen, much of whose work centers around images of sugary American treats.

    "I love the color and the iconic images in Kent's work and appreciate the good and bad in all staples of American life," Elphick said. "I wanted to create fun and beautiful shoes which make a statement and make a simple outfit complete."

    It was the chicest family night out ever in London yesterday, as Victoria Beckham hit the red carpet, along with her ADORABLE sons, Brooklyn, little fashionisto Romeo, and Cruz, to support the premiere of the soccer football documentary Class of '92, featuring superstar dad David. And she looked perfect as always--in Victoria Beckham, of course.

    Dressed in all black, the designer and style icon mixed seasons with an oversize midcalf-length wool coat from fall 2012 (even Posh shops her own closet!) and a fit-and-flare minidress from the current collection. Victoria wore her coat loose by leaving the coordinating belt at home and the slouchy silhouette layered over a streamlined LBD made for the right mix of effortless and elegance.

  • The Dress that EVERY Woman Should Own

    by Avery Matera

    Fairchild ArchiveFairchild ArchiveThere's nothing more classic than the perfect crisp white shirt. Honestly, the only thing better is a great shirt dress (a.k.a. my new obsession). It is, in my estimation,THE dress every woman should own. Oxford shirting came out in full force on the spring 2014 runways, from tops to skirts to dresses and beyond. For true 360-degree shirting inspiration, all you need to do is check out Alexander Wang's amazing collection.

    But I digress…so back to the shirt dress. It's the easiest piece of clothing you will ever invest in, goes with everything, and is appropriate year-round (throw on a pair of tights and chunky heels with any of the below looks and your summer go-to will immediately be winter-holiday-ready)!

  • 5 Trends You Didn't Know Were Inspired by Pilgrims. Happy Thanksgiving!

    by Becky Malinsky


    Fairchild Archive

    Didn't realize the fall trends you are most coveting date back to the first steps onto Plymouth Rock? Well surprise! The Pilgrims were clearly ahead of their time. Cranberries and stuffing aside, these micro-trends from the fall 2013 runways are sure to be the most festive element at feasts nationwide this Thursday.


    #1 The Statement Collar (above)
    I remember my first obsession with the Pilgrims' stark black-and-white contrasts and their supreme knowledge of a great exaggerated collar. Fourth grade. Halloween. Grandma stitched up a perfect replica, bonnet and all. Viktor & Rolf seem to be on my same page. Their exaggerated bow collar this season surely makes a below-the-neck statement.

    Once the collar is firmly in place, the next layer in a Pilgrim's look is none other than the simple, full-coverage black dress. While totally acceptable to be worn on its own these days, like this Read More »from 5 Trends You Didn't Know Were Inspired by Pilgrims. Happy Thanksgiving!

    First Lady Michelle Obama is one of my personal style heroines--since her husband's first inauguration, she's been a staunch supporter of young American designers and mainstream American brands--but even she has fashion regrets.


    The First Lady appeared on BET's 106 & Park yesterday and took a bunch of audience questions--one of which was "What is your biggest fashion regret?" Can you guess what her answer was?

    "I am kind of always happy with what I'm wearing, I think," she said. "Sometimes as First Lady, sometimes I forget I'm the First Lady and I'm running around in shorts. I know the first time we went on a family vacation, I had shorts on getting off of Air Force One and that created a huge stink because people were like, she's wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One. And I thought, "What, we're on vacation!"'

  • Today's Kate Middleton News: How to Rock a Pleated Skirt and Show Some Leg (Marilyn Moment Alert!)

    by Fawnia Soo Hoo

    Getty ImagesGetty ImagesLooks like Kate Middleton has a packed schedule this week in cold, blustery London! Yesterday, she stepped out to a charity event in a repeat coat dress by Orla Kiely, and this morning, Kate visited a crime prevention non-profit in a pleated skirt outfit (think she saw our slideshow?!).


    And not sure if it's proper to say this about the Duchess of Cambridge, but her legs look uh-mazing.

    Getty ImagesGetty Images

    Kate paired a navy moto-detail jacket by Max Mara with her knife-pleated mini-skirt, also by Orla Kiely, for modernly refined ensemble. (It's actually pretty amazing that her navy separates were the same shade--magical princess powers?) She accessorized with tones-of blue suede pumps, a clutch, and gloves, plus sheer tights. All the better to show off those toned legs... and then a gust of wind blew through the area.

  • The Makings of a Perfect Coat Dress: What We Can All Learn from Kate Middleton (Who Has the Closet Staple Down Pat)

    Looks like Jennifer Lawrence isn't the only one into coat dresses to look chic and stay warm at winter gatherings. On this brisk morning earlier in London, Kate Middleton stepped out for a charity event wearing a wool brown coat dress by one of her favorite (and her mom's!) designers, Orla Kiely.

    When the Duchess wore this dress in February 2012 (accessorized in the exact same way--brown tights, suede booties, chocolate clutch, why mess with a good thing?), Orla Kiely immediately sold out of the frock. It's easy to see why. The jacquard bird weave is adorable and regal at the same time and the belted fit-and-flare silhouette is so feminine and flattering. So what do you think--are coat dresses officially a thing?


    Shop out some Kate-inspired coat dresses here.

    Will you invest in a coat dress this winter? More importantly, do you think Orla Kiely should reissue the frock?
