Slouchy jeans. Belt-slung shorts. Oversize button up shirts. It’s officially in fashion to raid your boyfriend’s closet. Which means more for you (and less for him… but never mind that.) Today’s tip is about the merits of swiping your boyfriends favorite wears for yourself — and looking absolutely fabulous doing it.
Your BF’s jeans, hanging precariously off the hip, are the perfect compliment to a tucked crisp T-shirt. Simply roll the cuff and pair with a sexy heeled sandal and you’ve got a great going out look that’s not to casual to be chic. Shorts are the same — the slouch is sexy and urban, with a cool display of leg perfect for showing off the latest in your shoe collection.
It’s hard not to see the promise of your BF’s button-ups, particularly when tied at the waist. And let’s not forget the magic of your boyfriend’s sweater, which makes a great pairing with skinny jeans or over a floral dress.
Who needs to go on a shopping spree when your boyfriend closet is so obviously ripe for the picking!read more
Whether slim and sleek or a big chunky chain, choker necklaces are back from the 90′s, and for very good reason. Once spring/summer ’14′s runway like Chanel and L’Wren Scott started the charge, choker necklaces have been seen on everyone from the street style set, to off-duty models, to the red carpet and back again.

Try pairing a scoop neck tee with a bold beaded or metal collar, or a chunky gold chain choker with your must-have summer blazer — there are so many styles of choker heating up the fashion set, that’s it’s hard to go wrong.

We realize it’s still sweltering, but fashion waits for no one and it’s time to start talking about fall. From coats to boots and back again, fall trends are about bundling up without losing your stylish summer edge. So let’s dive in a take a sneak peek at some of the latest and greatest in the world of of-the-moment cold weather chic.
The rule of thumb for fall is oversizing. Everything is big, big, big. Think The Row’s chunky sweaters, the big bold robe coats from Chloe, Stella McCartney, and Altuzarra, even oversized frocks from Sarah Burton. Summer’s less-is-more look will turn to bigger-is-better before a single leaf falls.
A decidedly Western appeal and an all out 60′s mod vibe was seen on the most recent fall runways, from Cushni et Ochs and Tibi’s cowboy chic hats and jackets, to Valentino, Gucci and Saint Laurent’s 60′s-inspired colorful shift dresses paired with black tights and over-the-knee boots.
And finally turtle necks are taken to the extreme on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Helmut Lang and Chanel, with the cuts covering half the models faces and some going right up over their heads like a cowl. Covering up was never taken so literally as this over-the-top fall trend.
The idea of rocking any of this might be unappealing right now, but you’ll likely want to get a jump on things before the leaves start a fallen’.read more
