New Trends in Jeans

Posted by kristin On January - 30 - 2010

Denim Trends There’s always a new denim trend on the horizon and who knows what it will be, but I do know what the current jean trends are. Fade to Black Is there anything more neutral than a black jean? The faded black denim trend is practical, slimming and destined to become a staple wardrobe item in everyone’s closet (or drawer) this year. The best part about this latest trend is it’s really just a color so you can combine a few different trends with your faded black jeans like distressed... more

Katie Holmes Does Winter Right

Posted by kristin On January - 27 - 2010

Katie Holmes Winter Garb Too often celebrities are wrapped up in their own vanity to be practical and suddenly we see little girls emulating them wearing paper thin coats in below zero weather and stilettos gracing the feet of prepubescent girls. So it’s nice to see someone get it right once in a while. Katie Holmes dressed appropriately for the Sundance Film Festival’s premiere of The Extra Man and proved that suitable clothing can be attractive too. Clad in a cute, long winter coat and matching... more

Sometimes It’s Just Jeans and a T-Shirt

Posted by kristin On January - 26 - 2010

Jennifer Aniston We spend a lot of time here talking about the latest trends and styles but sometimes you just have to throw style out the window and go with an old standby, a t-shirt and jeans. But there are wrong and right ways to do this too. When making a casual statement in a t-shirt and jeans it doesn’t matter whether it’s a short sleeved t-shirt or a long sleeved t-shirt just as long as it’s a plain old t-shirt without anything fancy going on. But the jeans are another thing. A casual... more

Edgy Goes Mainstream

Posted by kristin On January - 25 - 2010

Ciara Shredded Jeans Yesterday my sister and I spent a day shopping and checking out the latest clothing trends. One thing that had us initially laughing were some of the “crazy” clothing that were in mainstream stores, but as we saw more and more of it we realized that the edgy clothing trend has become a crossover look. Now I doubt you’ll see many people wearing lace leggings to work but you may see some people you wouldn’t expect wearing them for a night on the town. You also probably... more

Swimwear Style for 2010

Posted by kristin On January - 24 - 2010

Jennifer Aniston Mismatched Bikini It may seem a bit early for some but the stores are moving out the winter coats and making room for swimsuits. But summer is just around the corner (right?) and it is cruise season. So let’s see what’s new in swimwear for 2010. The first big thing that you notice when you look at new 2010 swimwear is that skin is in. The bikini is back in a big big way and showing skin is going to be paramount. Of course this means that lean and trim bodies are going to be important... more

Celebrity Airport Fashion

Posted by kristin On January - 21 - 2010

Jessica Simpson Traveling When I was a little girl my mom used to dress us up for any flights we took. She explained this to me years later by saying she felt like we were guests, almost as though we were being welcomed into someone’s home, and thought we should look nice for the experience. Now, as airport security has clamped down and short layovers often force a mad dash across the terminal things have changed a little bit in my life. I no longer really dress up for flights, I mean I wear running... more

Two New Pants Trends for 2010

Posted by kristin On January - 20 - 2010

Sasha Baron Cohen's Slouch Pants The runways are showing two new trends for pants this year and the trends are modifications of previous trends we’ve seen, they’re also polar opposites of each other. The first trend is away (thank god) from that super ugly harem pant trend the designers were trying to convince us was going to catch on for the last couple years. The newest trend is slouch pants that are wider through the hip, flowing and wide through the legs. The length of these pants can... more

Kate Hudson’s Golden Globes 2010 Fashion Disaster

Posted by kristin On January - 18 - 2010

Kate Hudson Golden Globes 2010 Hollywood brought the glamour out in full force at the Golden Globes this year. It was refreshing and encouraging to see so many of Hollywood’s elite dressed to the nines, it was as if for once we forgot the economic crisis and proceeded as though everything were still on track and there was expendable money for glamorous evening gowns that would only be worn once. Overall, the stars were dressed spectacularly but there were some obvious clunkers and one that’s... more

You Work Out Like a Girl

Posted by kristin On January - 15 - 2010

Eva Longoria Workout Clothing The latest thing in the fitness fad is femininity. Or is it that the latest trend in women’s clothes is work out clothing. Whatever it is these lines are getting blurred and if you want to be fashion forward in the spring then you’d better get your butt to the gym or look like you did. Gone are the androgynous sweatpants and the casual T-shirts that you  just throw on to go to the gym, or more likely to run to the grocery store to pick up another gallon of ice cream.... more

Season Seven of Project Runway

Posted by kristin On January - 14 - 2010

Project Runway I don’t know if I could be more excited about the new, seventh season of Project Runway starting tonite. And apparently New York is excited too as Project Runway returns to the fashion capitol of the United States, as they temporarily renamed the famed Fashion Avenue, Project Runway Avenue. I enjoyed the last season of Project Runway but there is just something more exciting about the city of New York and its energy and fashion forward nature. Not to mention it’s current, the last... more
