Bangs are the new black. These days, hairstyles with bangs can look good on everyone. The trick is tailoring your bangs to the shape of your face and then styling them to match your age and, well, your vibe. Think of bangs as the little black dress of hairstyles–there are many options and you’re sure to find one that suits you.
What’s not to love about ASOS, the UK-based online-only, global fashion and beauty retailer. Here are our 11 top “whys” but not in any particular ranking. No. 1 It’s just great to see on Asos.com’s site so many pieces of clothing in the $30-$40 range on a regular basis. Asos currently is running a sale where prices have been cut up… View Post
Ode to the dress: The one-piece wonder that let’s you get dressed better and faster than your casual go-to pair of jeans and cotton t-shirt, you let us look polished and put together in seconds. Comfortable, chic, and spicier than ever, you truly know how to heat up any day with a swoosh of fabric or flash of knee. We… View Post
Along with the warmer weather comes skin-baring styles like halter tops. No, we’re not talking about tops that show virtually all of our um, Kardashians, but ones that let us show skin in all the right places . . . dressy halter tops can look stylish and sexy without looking like we frequent a seedy street corner.
One of my favorite quotes is from a movie, and it takes place in a restaurant: “I’ll have what she’s having.” Sound familiar? It also applies to style—whenever I see a fellow fashionista in a super cool and unique outfit, I say to myself “I want what she’s wearing.”
When it comes to jeans for plus sizes we could go as far as saying that this is an area for plus sizes that is not lacking. There are a number of plus size denim brands (including straight brands like Paige Premium, James, and Citizens for Humanity which come in plus sizes), that hug curves, hide muffin tops, and makes… View Post
Unless you live in a perpetual paradise (Curse you, Californians!), now is that transitional time of year when you swap your faux fur-lined parkas for lighter trenches. Meaning now is the time to schedule the more-often-than-not-put-off epic Spring Cleaning session. Taking a cue from Gwynnie, here’s what you need a conscious uncoupling from asap. Translation in layman’s terms? Throw that… View Post
Easter Sunday is almost here which means putting that perfect Easter meal together. Yet much of the Easter table décor consists of kindergarten-ish plastic eggs and cartoony bunnies.
Only Alexander Wang would announce an epic collaboration of couture-meets-everyday with such panache. With an Instagram video to be precise. Wang’s collection is coming 11/6 to 250 stores and will include goodies for both the ladies and the men. Hoorah! Some exciting news to cheer up a dreary Monday.
Summer will be here before we know it and unless we’ve been living on another planet, lots of stores have been dropping the “time to get a bathing suit” hint, right? It’s all we see as soon as we enter, so we’ll take it as our cue to stock up on suits while the styles we like (at the prices we want) are still around.
If there’s any season that’s most notorious for being dubbed wedding season, it’s spring. Check out our tips for what to wear to a spring weeding.
The bridezilla who prescribes weekly CrossFit sessions so her bridesmaids can fit into $300 Amsale dresses. The overly-involved mother-in-law who insists on Ocean View suites for the whole fam. We’ve all heard “those” stories before. Perhaps it was a friend’s cousin’s sister-in-law or a coworker’s former boss. Weddings can ignite everyone’s inner crazy, and in our culture where your picture… View Post
BYOB? Keep your wine bottle as stylish as you are. In other words, skip the brown paper bag wrapped around your fave Chardonnay and instead, choose pretty wine totes. Seriously, meeting your friends for dinner and showing up with a tattered paper bag doesn’t exude style (worse if the receipt is still stapled to the bag).
The Douchiest Sexiest Man Alive is bringing sexy back to women’s wear. And we say “sexy” in the loosest terms possible, reminding readers that sexy is in the eye of the beholder.
We don’t know what it is about the UK that just gets fashion right for the plus size woman but we hope they don’t stop whatever it is that they’re doing. Not only are the styles hot (that animal print number above), but affordable, even AFTER you factor in the exchange rate (which is around 2x the price listed in… View Post
DealNews has released its monthly roundup of what to buy in April, and what is best left till May onward. These include spring apparel sales, baubles, and Abercrombie & Fitch’s expected-but-yeah-it’s-awkward shift to fast fashion ala-H&M and lower prices. (Will they still keep those hideous shopping bags, though? Ugh!)
This time of year we’re thrilled about hats that are more about style than staying warm. Finally! I don’t know about you, but I was getting tired of all the heavy knit hats. Thank goodness it’s spring and more importantly, that it’s starting to feel like it. Crazy weather everywhere. But I digress.
