NYFW Trend Report: Spring into Action!

Here we are again! Back in New York City and the energy is palpable, from the searing late-summer sun to the mad dash between Lincoln Center and Milk Studios (and everywhere in between). But it’s what’s going on inside that’s really stirring up our spirits…

Nordstrom Signature x Caroline Issa: The Second Coming

My gorgeous friend Caroline Issa has come out with her second collection for Nordstrom, and it’s just as sophisticated and wearable as the first! For Fall ’15, she’s brought us 29 designs with a focus on menswear-style suits and moto jackets.

Men’s Culottes: The Short List just got Longer

All right, I can barely get my husband to stand my culottes, let alone get him in a pair, but Alexander McQueen’s SS16 mulottes (Is this a term? It is now!) give me hope that the trend will be making its way into menswear soon. Guys must get tired of wearing the same old shorts all summer long, no? This is a fun alternative – and a much cooler one than a pair of bootcut jeans.

Olivia Palermo’s Stripes on Stripes: Jump in the Lines

Pairing stripes with more stripes is an endeavor that not every Snob could pull off, but this is Olivia Palermo, front row fixture extraordinaire, and it’s not her first time dressing outside the lines – or in this case, in them. Personally, I love the look, even with mismatched stripes.

Derek Lam Cuffed Gaucho Pant: Off the Cuff

The skinny jean has long reigned as the chic silhouette of choice, but lately we’ve seen everything from flared to culotte to pegged to harem pants! I’m not saying skinnies are going anywhere anytime soon…I’m just saying you should consider something a little roomier for summer.

Trend Alert: Harem Pants

Yesterday, I talked about the revival of vibrantly-patterned, pegged pants. Well, with the good comes the…not so good. Yes, harem pants also seem to be having a moment. It’s a trend that just won’t seem to go away.

Top 5 Pegged Pants You Need Now: Show Some Leg

The ‘80s were defined by a few very distinctive things: fanny packs (which have since come back in style), mullets (which will never be in style), and wildly-patterned, pegged pants. These are not to be confused with harem or “Hammertime” pants, though…

Best Culottes Under $50: Calm, Cool, and Culotted

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I dabble in culotte evangelism, and while my hubby has yet to appreciate the shaggy chic style, there’s no denying that these artfully tailored pants are trending.

Kendall Jenner x Black Orchid Noah Patchwork Skinny: Sour Patches

I love denim on denim. There’s a fine line between being chic and being out of touch, though, and throwing patches into the mix only makes it harder to achieve the former. Fortunately for Kendall, she can wear anything and still look like the supermodel she is…
