Actual Animal Prints Are This Season’s Wildest Trend

Actual Animal Prints Are This Season’s Wildest Trend

    Calling all risk-takers, dog lovers, cat ladies, horse whisperers: these days, regular ol’ leopard print isn’t enough to suit our maximalist, embellishment-loving tastes. True, the classic pattern will always have its place on the runways (see: the Fall 2018 collections of Tom Ford, Adam Selman, R13 and Rag and Bone, where the spots got an ultra-glam, crazy-bright remix). But with every passing season, more and more designers are sidestepping animal prints and putting actual animals (and insects) on their pieces. The Pre-Fall 2018 collections were a literal zoo. Big cats stole the show at Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Valentino —...


Micro Bags Are Trending in a Macro Way

Micro Bags Are Trending in a Macro Way

   Not all street style trends are the easiest to wear IRL. But micro bags, the “It” accessory amongst the latest crop of New York and London Fashion Week showgoers, most certainly are (which is part of why they’ve stuck around for, oh, four-plus seasons now). Teeny, shrunken bags say a lot about their wearer. They tell of their ability to edit, to Kondo-down their handbag to just the essentials: keys, wallet, phone, maybe a stick of gum, maybe some lip balm. Plus, they’re fun. Freeing. Usually reserved for weekend jaunts or a night out. The antithesis of the ginormous tote you...


Move Over Crop Tops, Extra Long Shirts Are the New Must-Have

Move Over Crop Tops, Extra Long Shirts Are the New Must-Have

   There was a time in the not-too-distant fashion past when everything was cropped:our tops, jeans and even hair. But now influencers are aiming for Rapunzel locks instead of buzz cuts, cuffed jeans are making way for classic bootcuts and shirts are plunging below our waistlines. Whether it’s a white button-down that goes down almost to your knees or a floor-scraping top worn over pants to replicate that whole dress-over-pants vibe, the longer your top, the better. Call it a response to the deconstructed shirt trend or all those short dresses/tops with trains on the red carpet (Kendall Jenner FTW), shirts with elongated hems...


Show Some Skin: Slits Are In

Show Some Skin: Slits Are In

   Fun fact: Since Joseph Altuzarra’s debut collection for Fall 2009, the designer has sent out more than 200 slitted looks (that’s over a nine-year period, for those of you doing the math at home). He’s the master of the skin-baring phenomenon known as “Angelina Jolie leg.” But who doesn’t love a slit? No one, it seems. Searches for the edgy, sexy-yet-chic detail are way up on Pinterest; saves for “side slits” have increased by 147 percent over the past year, according to the photo-sharing platform’s latest trend report. Of course, you don’t have to be a data scientist to recognize that arty flashes...


We’re Calling It: Snakeskin Print Is the New Cheetah Print

We’re Calling It: Snakeskin Print Is the New Cheetah Print

    In the world of fashion, how do we know that an item/style/print is “cool”? Well, if it gets a cosign from coveted skate brand Supreme — you know, the once-underground label known for its bright red box logo and last year’s hugely successful, super-exclusive Louis Vuitton x Supreme collab — that’s a pretty solid start. Back in November, the luxury streetwear label — which recently signed a 500 million dollar deal with The Carlyle Group — let loose another quick-to-sell-out collaboration, this one with Levi’s, featuring multiple snakeskin print styles. Downtown It girl Mellany Sanchez — formerly of KITH and Vogue, now...
