LA Gear

Ah, L.A. Gear. The high top sneaker that had street cred AND looked super cute, evidenced by their use at one point of celebrity spokesmodels Paula Abdul and Belinda Carlisle.

Forget what you’ve been hearing about honeysuckle and orange being the “It” colors of the moment. This week, Hollywood was all about classic black and white, with fashion’s boldest trendsetters re-imagining the menswear trend in a variety of ways. The latest iterations of the look range from the risqué to the buttoned-up, but always include stylishly sexy details. We applaud Hollywood’s affirmation that behind every menswear-inspired look is a strong woman, and know how a bold, simple black ensemble says to anyone at work or play, “Look at my face.”

Check out this week’s best in black, then sift through your closet for your own best.
