Best Fur Stoles to Wear All Winter Long

best-fur-stoles
Usually, when it comes to cold-weather fashion, there’s no truly chic way to layer without freezing at least one body part off. And you could totally survive the winter by wrapping yourself in a huge blanket scarf so many times that you can barely breathe—or, you could invest in a fur stole. Worn around the neck like a collar, draped over your shoulder, or in the crooks of your elbows like a shawl, a fur stole is an basically a fuzzy vest-accoutrement-combo that nearly every street style star has been reaching for since the temperature dropped. Plus, the best fur stoles are a perfect middle ground if you’re not ready to go full-on-fur-coat but want to add a luxe feel to your outfit: You can...

The First Female Latina Senator Was Elected (Plus a Few More Bright Spots)

women
While the nation is reeling from the shock of Donald Trump's unprecedented upset in the presidential race, women have still managed to make history last night—just maybe not in the way everyone expected: The first female Latina U.S. senator was elected. Nevada elected Catherine Cortez Masto, making her the first female Latina U.S. senator, beating her Republican opponent, Rep. Joe Heck, by a margin of 2 percent. She'll fill Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's seat when he leaves office in January. Leading up to the election, Masto garnered endorsements from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, first lady Michelle Obama, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to The Washington Post. The daughter of Mexican immigrants, Masto is Nevada's former...

What Exactly Is Vegan Faux Leather, Anyway?

what-is-faux-leather
Vegan leather is a phrase you see around a lot these days—on the hangtags of Zara bags, on the label of your new moto jacket, in an article about a new animal-friendly accessories line. But while we’re all pretty clear on what leather is (even if we don’t particularly like thinking about it), the “faux-leather” label isn’t necessarily so clear. For one, the label is an umbrella term that covers several materials, including PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PU (polyurethane), and many other, more innovative synthetics. According to Joshua Katcher, an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design and the founder of slow-fashion line Brave Gentleman, the field is constantly changing, so that the cheap, plasticky, unbreathable “pleather” of our parents’ generations bears...

Make Do and Mend is the name of the British wartime conservation campaign that inspired Christopher Kane’s 10th anniversary collection. (In light of the shocking upset in the U.S. presidential election, it might also suggest one way to move forward and heal.) The Scottish designer, who is known to be fond of elevating common trimmings like tapes and zip ties, stayed his course and played up a DIY aesthetic via magpie no-sew dresses, some with seams attached with D-rings. Kane wasn’t the only designer who seemed to have developed a hardware store fetish this season, either. Others, with completely different starting points also found new uses for common objects: At Loewe, craft-store-style bells added flourish and sound to a logoed shoulder...

Olivia Munn Puts a Stylish Spin on the Classic Baseball Jacket

110916-olivia-munn-street-style-lead

The four necessary Cs when dressing to survive New York City's colder months: cozy, casual, comfy, and chic. Olivia Munn's latest street style look checked off all four of those boxes, as she stepped out in the West Village neighborhood of N.Y.C. on Tuesday to exercise her right as a U.S. citizen to vote.

Munn stunned in a pair of high-waist jeans in a dark blue wash, paired with a simple white T-shirt, a fuzzy two-toned blue baseball jacket, and a trendy multi-colored Chanel bag. A pair of embellished slip-on sneakers and chic sunnies finished off her look.

A Recipe for Twin Peaks’ Damn Fine Cherry Pie

360220
Widely regarded as the pinnacle of televisual entertainment, Twin Peaks (Mark Frost and David Lynch’s seminal 90s creation), is set to return in late Spring 2017. While it’s been 26 years since the show left the small screen – and 24 since its cinematic counterpart Fire Walk with Me floundered before being proclaimed a cult hit and re-asserted as an unmissable part of Lynch’s oeuvre – Twin Peaks’ cultural impact has never waned. This is partially due to its formidable fan-to-fanatic conversion rate, but also abetted by its endurance as a fountain of references for filmmakers, musicians and fashion designers alike – see Christian Louboutin’s current ShoePeaks campaign, for one example – stemming from its completeness as a vivid, multidimensional universe. With Twin Peaks, Frost and Lynch pioneered...

The New Way To Embrace Layering

Jason Lloyd Evans
This post was supposed to be a piece in praise of the pant suit, in honour of Hilary Clinton, the first female president of the United States. I had my two-piece pressed and ready to wear today, to be paired with a T-shirt and trainers for a more low-key slant on head-to-toe tailoring. But I didn’t have the heart to wear it this morning. I chose black trousers and a black knit instead – a more modern take on mourning I guess. Can a piece on the new layering lift my spirits, and yours? Doubtful, but I’ll have a go … Remember when wearing a dress over trousers was cutting edge, innovative and the mark of a true fashion innovator? That was more than 15...
