Posts for November 4th 2012
This week may have gotten off to a stormy start, but we made sure to keep you in the know about how to look your best — even during a hurricane! In addition to our storm gear roundup, we showed you how to cozy up your slip dress with a cardigan, pull off an Emmanuelle Alt-inspired look, and accessorize your cold-weather look with a fur collar. We also broke down Pippa Middleton's ladylike outfit and even introduced you to James Bond's latest female counterpart. Get caught up on the best stories of the week with our roundup!
Remember the days when double denim was a double don't (and we're not just talking about Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears's denim styles)? Now the denim-on-denim popularized by Jenna Lyons's styling is a far cry from the Canadian tuxedo. Sure, we got the denim-on-denim looks first on the 2010 runways, like those of Chloé and Ralph Lauren, but as with most trends, it took a few mass retailers like Gap and J.Crew to back the styles, along with a handful of celebrities, like Kate Bosworth and Kate Moss, to really make it a trend. Fast-forward to almost three years later, and the look has transitioned from trendy to closet staple and remained a mainstay in Madewell's style book with Solange Knowles. With the runways this season giving us a new double duo — this time in print — we couldn't help but draw a few comparisons and wonder which head-to-toe play is more wearable.
Peter Som, Cynthia Rowley, and Prabal Gurung were among the first designers to pioneer the printed suit trend for Spring '12, while Miu Miu perpetuated the trend for Fall '12, and Roberto Cavalli, Suno, and DVF carried it through Resort and Spring '13. Now we're seeing it really take off with celebrities outfitting the look Topshop suit set, and Emma Roberts got in on the new wave of print-on-print via a suit by Nanette Lepore. Seems to us this trend is taking off with both the celebrity crowd and mass retailers like Topshop, J.Crew, and H&M, leaving us to believe this look will soon be just as popular as our now beloved denim-on-denim. Of course, that all depends on one thing: it's wearability. Which look is actually more wearable — denim-on-denim or the printed suit? You decide.
From printed sweaters to metallic jackets to even leather sleeves — our picks for Looks of the Week won't cease to send you sartorial inspiration this November. This week's favorites: AmadeusOnTheCatwalk, Apopofpurple, Nettevartanian, Euphoriasroom, Gm2239, Ava Drake, Diamondsforbreakfast, Lilyschlosser, Rkorkounian, and BeijosTiffany. Congrats, all!
