Trend To Try: Fuzzy Wuzzy Luv

Fuzzy Wuzzy

The constant clasping of a pumpkin spice latté is a definite bonus to the arrival of autumn, but more importantly, chilly fall weather means the arrival of sweater weather!!!!111

There is no article of clothing I love more than a good, knit, sweater. Chunky, slouchy, fine knit – they’re all rad! Thankfully for us, one of the biggest trends on the Fall runways was super fuzzy wuzzy clothing, and even more fortunately, stores are being stocked to the brim with these cozy and chic offerings. read more…

Trend To Try: Grandma $W@G

Your grandma may be the wisest person you know (or she may smell like fluoride). Either way, she has been places and SEEN stuff – and frankly…she knows what’s up. She’s got nobody to impress and will wear whatever she wants because she is wise, she is experienced, and she has a BAWSS FLORAL COLLECTION! Now stalk up on those hard candies and get to #WERK. read more…

Trend To Try (Maybe): The Fanny Pack

therock

Fanny packs are often associated with lost tourists (e.g. elderly couple from Florida with matching visors) and middle-aged men wanting to keep their wallet away from their booty. Recently, Matthew McConaughey was spotted wearing a fanny pack at the Red Sox game – and when asked about the fanny pack, he adamantly defended it: practicality trumps fashion, especially when you’ve got a lot of random stuff you don’t want to keep in your butt pockets. McConaughey is not the only one to rock the fanny pack… the Rock (lol), Jason Batemen, and Kanye are members of the fanny pack gang. Is the FP trying to make a comeback? Probably. Should it be a thing? Probably not. Here are a few of the best celeb renditions of fanny packs… read more…

Trend to Try: Rave Style

Raves were – well – all the rave in the late 80’s. Here masses would gather in warehouses in Bushwick and bust crazy moves to pulsing beats all the while sporting wild colours and prints. Well, if you haven’t already noticed, trends from the 80’s and 90’s are making a major reappearance on the runways, and hence, in our closets. The Fall 2014 collections showed a plethora of bright and optical prints, as well as rave inspired beauty. A trend made for street style definitely deserves further exploration.  read more…

Trend to Try: Star Wars

STAR WARS

Despite being bespectacled, a fairly diligent student, and busting the occasional knee-slapper, my geek status is only part way there. One glaring requirement that I am totally missing is a deep love and understanding of the epic film franchise Star Wars. Although I’ve seen the films in the past, and can say I enjoyed them, I am not as well-versed in the culture that surrounds the films as I could be. However, after seeing Star Wars-inspired gowns walk Rodarte’s runway during New York Fashion Week, I knew the time had come to explore this not so far away galaxy. read more…

Important Moments for the Hawaiian Shirt

Reserved for the mucho-relaxed, often left open to reveal a mediocre silhouette in a dirty white tank top (or simply done to signify just how chill you are)…this piece of clothing is a – probably not – “timeless staple”. In order to celebrate the charming short sleeve button-down, we made a list of the top 5 most important hawaiian shirt moments. We all know your dad rocks his the best on vacation, but unfortunately, we couldn’t get him on the list. read more…

8 Ways to Get Away with Wearing Your Pyjamas in Public

I am a lazy person by nature – I like to lounge around my apartment in my pyjamas and watch copious amounts of Netflix. So naturally, when it comes to my outfits, I like something that looks good with minimal effort (but it doesn’t make me a basic bish). In an ideal world, it would be socially acceptable to go to work or out in public in just my pyjamas – although I feel like in university or during the winter, the rules are a bit more lenient. Now, since designers have been slowly incorporating it into their lines (e.g. fashionable track pants and heels) it is time to think about actually wearing your pyjamas in public. Here are 8 ways YOU can look and feel as comfortable as you do at home… read more…

Why Trench Coats Rule m/

trenchcover

With the recent rainy day blues, I have sought out the only thing that has lightened my mood, the ultimate trench coat!!!!! Taking nods from Disney Recess’ Hustler Kid, to a straight up flasher, I decided to purchase the universally loved jacket. They can be perfect for looking like a mysteriously chic British socialite a la Alexa Chung, or a 1950s movie heroine like Hepburn. They are also quite practical when it comes to getting caught in the rain (and not in the cute way) which I guess is also important. Here are some varieties of the ultimate season-transitioning anorak ~*~ read more…

Trend to Try: I C RIGHT THRU U

It’s summer (or at least it is suppose to feel like it is) which means it is vital to keep cool while looking cool. See what I did there? The idea of sheer may scare some away, immediately conjuring up images of Marques Houston in a clear suit or Britney via Toxic. However, I have made a 5 step plan to ease some of you non-sheer believers into trying this clear movement. read more…

FYI: Invasion of the Mermaidz
