Despite the Still Frigid Temps, Now Is the Prime Time to Go Swimsuit Shopping

   Since many of us are digging out from yet another nor’easter or dealing with chilly-for-March temps, swimsuit shopping is probably the last thing on your mind. But now is actually the perfect time to prep for warmer weather as the market is saturated with just-launched swimsuit collections. Solid & Striped unveiled its latest offering featuring 13 top-tier models (Lily Aldridge, Jourdan Dunn, Isabeli Fontana, Eniko Mihalik, Carolyn Murphy and Natasha Poly, to name a few) who actually designed some of the swimsuits. And Ashley Graham recently revealed her new Swimsuits For All line with a little help from her...


How Sceney DJ-Turned-Designer May Kwok Style Her Day

How Sceney DJ-Turned-Designer May Kwok Style Her Day

   If you think DJs sleep all day and party all night, well, you may be right, but that’s certainly not the case with athleisure- and workout-obsessed May Kwok. A typical day for the stylish scenester starts at 4:30 a.m. “I brew some coffee, organize and pack up my outfits for the day,” Kwok says. “I’ll have a light breakfast as well and then head to the Rockaways for a quick morning surf — there’s nothing more soothing, cleansing and relaxing than starting my day in the ocean.” And, yes, she goes surfing in the winter. If it’s really too cold to...


Kitten Heel Slingbacks Are The Shoes Missing From Your Spring Wardrobe

Kitten Heel Slingbacks Are The Shoes Missing From Your Spring Wardrobe

   When spring comes, one of the first things we do is trade our heavy boots for lighter, more streamlined footwear. After stuffing our toes into fur-lined, thick-soled boots, it’s liberating to put on a delicate shoe that reveals the ankle. In the case of this season’s kitten heel slingback, we also get to expose a bit of heel.Following the steady rise of V-cut shoes and last year’s obsession with mules and Gucci(or Gucci-like) loafers, kitten heel slingbacks have emerged as a popular shoe style favored by the runways and street style stars. Nevermind kitten heels’ twee reputation and the shoe of...


The Lowrider Scare Is Over: High-Waisted Pants Are (Thankfully) Back for Spring

The Lowrider Scare Is Over: High-Waisted Pants Are (Thankfully) Back for Spring

Remember last summer when the internet collectively lost its guano over the return of lowrider jeans? Well, Roksanda Ilincic called and she wants her high-waisted denim back. We live in turbulent, fickle times, friends. That, or a lack of sales, sent designers back to the drawing board to figure out where things went wrong (hint: no one has the time or discipline to curate washboard abs). Let’s just hope the design houses have learned this lesson for good now so history doesn’t repeat itself and send us back into a frenzied panic. This time around, the high-waisted trouser has a few...


A New Generation of Unboring Pantsuits Hit The Fall 2018 Runways

A New Generation of Unboring Pantsuits Hit The Fall 2018 Runways

    Power suits, aka pantsuits, have been a favorite of designers and street stylers for some time now. Still, this past fashion month, the trend managed to pick up even more steam. (Yep, even with its fuel tank already full to bursting.) In the early days of the trend, many drew inspiration from the wardrobe of one Hillary Clinton. (She’s worn pantsuits in just about every color, from sunshine yellow to bright red to deep purple.) Notably, in July 2016, Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for the presidency in a crisp white pantsuit that paid homage to the women’s suffrage movement...
