The Emmy Awards—which, for the uninitiated, celebrate the best television shows of the year—is usually one of the more entertaining awards shows, but the red carpet is always a bit of a wildcard. Unlike, say, the Oscars or the SAG Awards, Emmys fashion can often range from majorly snoozy (we won’t mention any specifics) to daring […]

Modern Takes on the Tube Top

TubeTops

Tube tops: the mere phrase is enough to inspire flashblacks to the sequin-encrusted going-out tops and tragically unflattering lace-trimmed blousons of decades past. However, strapless tops have evolved a lot in the intervening years, and this summer, we’d venture that you might even want to add one to your repertoire. (I mean, we’ve all collectively […]

Foolproof Ways to Wear Stripes This Summer

astreen

Unlike, say, a bell-sleeve off-the-shoulder shirt or a pair of frayed-hem kick-flare jeans, stripes are the kind of trend virtually everyone already has in their wardrobe. Even if you don’t touch color and wouldn’t dream of mixing prints, chances are you have something—anything!—with vertical or horizontal lines. Especially in summer, when Breton tees, chambray button-ups, and […]

Along with “how to do your taxes” and “how to negotiate a raise,” “how to dress for work in the summer” is one of those life skills that really should have been taught in college. Navigating office politics; impressing your boss; shattering the glass ceiling—work is hard enough without worrying whether you’re appropriately dressed. And […]

Palm fronds, pineapples, super-saturated florals, and flying birds: a good tropical print should whisk you off to a sunny island—even if, in reality, your feet are firmly on a city sidewalk. The once-goofy Hawaiian shirt is making a major comeback this summer, and for more femme sensibilities, dresses laden with banana leaves and hibiscus are […]

We’ve seen ’em and loved ’em on the runway, and now they’ve graduated to street-style status: We’re talking about high gladiator sandals, summer’s answer to the knee-high boot. During the last few seasons, designers such as Valentino, Rodarte, and Chloe paired flowing dresses, micro-minis, and tight pants with the bold shoe, and now we’re seeing […]

Outfits That Prove Sneakers Are the Perfect Shoe for Summer

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, sandals tend to get all the glory in the footwear world. Which is fair enough: After months of tights and boots and other constricting apparatuses, your feet deserve a little fresh air and vitamin D. That said, sneakers may secretly be the best shoe of summer. Why? A few […]

fashiontips

Shorts may be the first thing we throw in our weekend bags in the summer, but come Monday? Hmmm … not always the most obvious choice. Denim cutoffs definitely don’t fly in a corporate office, and if they’re super short, they may not be great for a laid-back startup either. (Even if your boss is […]

The choker necklace is under siege. Small-scale, fashion-industry-centric siege, sure, but siege nonetheless. The trend has been on the rise for the past year or two, but really hit fever pitch this year, with red carpet regulars and Tumblr teens alike snatching up the accessory at an alarming pace. It hit something of a breaking […]

What to Wear With White Jeans

Let’s get one thing straight: We’ll never retire our trusty blue and black jeans. However, we can’t ignore the fact that summer is officially on the horizon, and dark, heavy denim isn’t exactly the thing we’ll reaching for every day. At the same time, were not exactly willing to shelve our jeans for the next […]
