11 Non-Basic Ways To Wear a Button-Up Shirts

gettyimages-807313276-1502852198
Summer has peaked, and those fun, one-and-done dresses simply aren’t doing it for you like they were back in June. Fall is on the horizon, the new collections are hitting stores. There’s a back-to-school energy in the air, and classic button-ups suddenly assume a fresh, uniform like appeal. Crisp shirting has forever been a street style staple, but we'd argue the trend in shirting has devolved into frilly and predictable territory over the past year or so. You know the overdone statement tops we’re talking about: starched poplin, off-the-shoulder, probably striped, possibly ruffled. We’re counting on seeing a bit more ingenuity in the shirting department next month outside the Spring 2018 shows. Our proposal? A classic oxford is always the best way to go—and...

Imaginary Best Friend Kate Moss Is Obsessed With Secret Gardens And ‘Gilmore Girls’

landscape-1503439177-000628-cal-26e-mrs-low-res

Kate Moss's ascent to supermodel stardom began in 1993 with Calvin Klein Obsession, a fragrance that traffics in the singular feeling of infatuation. Rather than replicate young romance in a studio, Klein sent an 18-year-old Moss and then boyfriend, 20-year-old photographer Mario Sorrenti, to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands for 10 days. The couple returned from their trip with hundreds of black and white images, the making of one of Calvin Klein's most iconic campaigns to date.

screen-shot-2017-06-12-at-5-07-04-pm-1497301669

They give you a mermaid tail to wear while you eat.

When I grow up, I would like to be a mermaid. In the off chance that that doesn't happen, I at least hope to visit the Mermaid Island Café, a dreamy mermaid-inspired dessert shop in Pathum Thani, Thailand.
This place makes your wildest mermaid fantasies come true. Upon entering, you're given a beautiful mermaid tail to wear as you make your way through the ocean-themed, mostly pink and blue café. I mean, come on:

Trange Is the New Black

hbz-stranger-things-00-lead-new-1503885173

Fall 2017 is a season of bizarre, gorgeously bonkers fashion. I dare you to toss convention out the window and join the new freakfest.
There are many advantages to going strange. First and foremost, strange clothing is empowering. Nobody messes with a strange person. I regularly test this theory on the New York subway. Whenever I board the A train in a strange outfit—stripy socks with sandals, flowery man-blouses, straw sombreros, massive shades—I precipitate a flurry of elbow nudges and anxious side-eyes. Too terrified to make eye contact, my fellow travelers immediately revert to playing Ballz on their smartphones. Sometimes people even cover their children’s eyes.

Kristen Stewart Runs to a Beyoncé Song in Latest Chanel Ad

kristenstewartchanelgabrielle
Kristen Stewart's identity is so tangled up with Chanel that, countless campaigns later, the two have finally become one. In the new ad for the luxury fashion house's Gabrielle fragrance, the actress basically plays herself even as she pays homage to the house's founder Coco Chanel. As Chanel's head of global creative resources Thomas du Pré de Saint-Maur explains in a statement, "Instead of retracing [Gabrielle Chanel's] life, we chose to put the spotlight on her free and rebel-at-heart personality." The one-minute clip begins artfully with the iconic brand's muse cloaked in a web of gauzy fabric. Once Stewart finds her way out of the cocoon-like swath, she breaks free and sprints to what might be Beyoncé's most overlooked song: a one-off she released in...

Princess Diana Inspired Off-White’s Spring 2018 Collection

landscape-1503941969-gettyimages-52105332

In July, Virgil Abloh―the man behind cult-favorite street-wear brand Off-White―revealed the inspiration for his spring 2018 collection. What could be next from a man who sent models down the runway in nipple-bearing, entirely transparent lace tops during his most recent fall 2017 show? Well, this time around, he's going decidedly more High Street than his fans might be used to: London High Street, that is. In an Instagram, the designer showed a sneak peek of his Princess Diana-covered mood board with the caption "one woman, 40 @off____white looks in the works come september":
