How to Wear Florals If You’re Not a Girly-Girl

Pink and frou-frou not your thing? We feel you. As spring comes in full bloom, floral-print-everything is in abundance, and that’s not really good news for all us non girly-girls out there. So what to do? Well, we have two options: 1. Avoid wearing any florals whatsoever (but how boring is that?), or 2. Toughen up your florals. (I think we’ll go with option #2.)

The first step to toughing up florals is choosing the right print. Go for one with a black base, like the Topshop set below. Then throw on your moto classics: a slick, leather jacket, and badass combat boots. Amp it up with a bright colored bag and pile on heavy metal jewelry for that extra edge.

I Tried 4 Of The (Literal) Biggest Trends Of The Season

To be completely honest, it's never been super-easy to be under 5'2" and into fashion. It's not that we petite people don't have fun getting dressed every day, but there are certain — well, many — obstacles we tend to face, like the fact that those thigh-high boots at Balenciaga are longer than the entire length of my body, or that extra-wide-legged, floor-skimming pants kind-of feel like a joke on anyone under six-feet tall. So it makes sense that I got a little, er, nervous when I realized clothing and accessories were heading in a bigger, giant-everything direction for spring. As a teeny-tiny person, it's understandably a bummer when you realize everything "everyone" will be wearing this season will surely swallow...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Lessons in Sass and Style

363912

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon’s enduring series, portrayed adolescence as it is often felt by those experiencing it: pure hell. Leading the team capable of battling hell’s demons was a 16-year-old girl named Buffy Summers, who was for many of us, a formative feminist icon. Whilst heroines such as Lara Croft earned their power by adopting typically masculine gender markers, Buffy was different. The show delighted in its protagonist’s teen-girlness and displayed an inherent distrust of patriarchal power (looking at you, Mayor Wilkins). Here, we analyse the lessons to be learned from the Scoobie Gang’s sartorial choices.

7 Coachella Outfits That Won’t Make You Cringe When You Look Back on the Photos

landscape-1488816694-slant-coachella2-filt

Some people like Paul Rudd have the luck to look moderately the same all their lives; others have to endure fluctuating weight and even more mercurial hair. But whatever nature has given you to work with, the deficit can be filled with clothes. So for Coachella, an event practically invented for exceeding your phone storage, we've put together seven outfits that will stand the test of time.

CAMP SHIRT + MATCHING DRESS The Prada way of styling a camp shirt is a bit hard to manage in the desert (no pencil skirts or pumps for me, please)—unless you go the Harley Viera Newton route with a minidress and sandals. You've still got the beach-holiday vibe with the...

Why Not Wear All the Colors of the Rainbow at Once?

02-paris-fashion-week-peacock.nocrop.w710.h2147483647

Wearing multiple bright colors in one outfit can appear as if you dressed in the dark while drunk, but somehow, Alicia Padrón pulls it off perfectly. Her inventive combination of kelly green, cobalt blue, metallic purple, and orange makes her the first Golden Peacock of Paris Fashion Week.
The trick to making this feel stylish and not off-the-rails comes in the form of the tiny details. Since the collar is super exaggerated, a sliver of a white turtleneck layered under cleans up the neckline. And instead of piling on even more color with the shoes and bag, she chose neutral black accessories. While you’re probably not going to recreate this, consider it inspiration for some unusual color mixing in the future.
