Ladies, suit up! One of our fav ways to take androgyny and make it femme is this Fall’s trend throwback to the women’s suit. Use soft colours (cause unlike the men, we ♥ our pinks and purples) to put that extra touch on your structured suit and really show them boys what’s it all about. Mad(wo)Man style.

“But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean. You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn’t it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up...

Using Knits to Create Texture
A little throwback to our posts on lace and crochet, but this look going into Fall and SS 2012, is going to be very important. And also very vital when we think of TEXTURES natalieoffduty froufrou champagneandmarshmallows champagneandmarshmallows

You know when you sift through the closet and b*#ch about how you hate everything you own? Solution: texture-ize. Mix fabrics and materials to give your look an edge, just enough that your clothes will feel different than before.

Flowers on my clothes make me feel even better than when I found the flower power on the Mario Brothers game I played on my sister’s Nintendo in 1994. Here’s why:

Ballenciaga did it. Now D&G’s running with it. I almost feel like these fashion houses draw straws to determine who gets to be center stage for these trends each season. But I guess you gotta share somehow. Our floral images today give you a little preview of just how much of this trend you’ll see in magazines and ads…very, very soon. But keep in mind, you don’t...
