Courtesy Rompers have the difficult reputation of being associated with babies. And we get it. Their other name is literally “playsuit,” which just sounds like something you’d dress Prince George in. But Saint Laurent and Alexander Wang are reinterpreting the style for adults, and we’re ready to transition from jumpsuits to rompers immediately. See 7

Yanshan ZhangGetty Images What comes across most clearly at Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen shows, aside from the stunning craftsmanship and impeccable tailoring, is the thoughtfulness. There’s a story behind each piece, behind the setting, behind even the seating for the show—imbuing the collection with emotional oomph. For this fall 2019 collection, Burton went home to

Courtesy Bunions be damned, because your feet are going to look like cute little pot roasts this summer. The barely-there sandals you wore to prom are back and podiatrists worldwide are shaking. The style is single-soled, multi-strapped, sometimes metallic or pastel (to match your taffeta Jessica McClintock), and has a mom-approved mid-heel stiletto. And you

A look from Venny Etienne Trend I’m loving: Subtle incorporations of shine and sparkle. Trend I cannot stand: Oversize clothes executed poorly. There’s an art to choosing to wear oversize clothes, as opposed to just wearing things that don’t fit. Too much fabric is not always the thing. My biggest strength as a designer: I’m

Courtesy Every situation calls for a different pair of underwear. You’d never wear your workday thong on weekend errands, or your gym hipsters to the office. And while we honestly believe granny panties are sexy, that iconic scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary is all too relatable. Plus, it’s about time you reconsider certain pairs that

Courtesy In middle school, my ideal outfit consisted of low-rise jeans, Adidas shell toes, and not one, but two layered camis in contrasting colors. Nowadays I’m dedicated to straight-leg denim, I’ve swapped my Superstars for Air Maxes, and my camisoles are now made of silk. Not much has changed, and that’s because the camisole is

Whether the concept of “fashion math” is new to you or a simple refresher is in order, we’re ready to step up to the chalkboard. Both a way to get comfortable with higher price tags and a savvy way to look at out-of-the-box styling, it’s the idea of taking how much something costs and dividing

Mom jeans are tough. Do they flatter your butt like a Fashionova fit? Absolutely not. But do they make you feel strangely accomplished and put together? Somehow, yes! The high-waist, straight-leg, loose-crotch silhouette is my jam, and I’m not afraid to admit it. And now Everlane is getting in the game. Courtesy The 90’s Cheeky

Courtesy Blair Waldorf infamously claimed that “tights are not pants.” We respectfully disagree. I stop short of attending a wedding in leggings (so far), but I can make it work for almost any occasion. Leggings serve a higher purpose beyond the gym. And as a legging aficionado, I’ve tried them all. From HIT workouts to

Gone are the days of handbags that require a five-finger grip. This fall, it’s all about pinching, because Simon Porte’s minuscule Jacquemus Le Chiquito somehow got even smaller. At Paris Fashion Week, Porte presented Jacquemus’s autumn/winter collection, titled La Collectionneuse, filled with a relaxed blazers loosely-buttoned, breezy summer dresses in varying lengths, chunky high-neck turtlenecks,

During Milan Fashion Week supermodels are groomed and future it-bags make their debut. The week is run by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana—a

But that doesn’t mean they won’t innovate. At London Fashion Week, the brand debuted a new collaboration with designer Ji Won Choi. The collection maintains

Vivien KillileaGetty Images With the weather taking an ominous turn and the planet in serious peril, we know fossil fuels, factory farming, and single-use plastics are major problems, but what if what we’re wearing is also to blame? With throwaway plastic components, landfill-ready packaging and unethically sourced materials the norm, should we only wear vintage?
