>> Campaign images of Jun Takahashi's Undercover Uniqlo collection have been released. Via the capsule's newly live website, the four campaign images depict an attractive family of six dressed head to toe in comfy-chic weekend classics: there are stripey-sleeve tops, khaki jackets, cardigan sweaters, and printed pants — in short, just the kind of clothing one would wear to engage in wholesome family fun. "Clothing for the families of today," the retailer explains. "It is the unity of Uniqlo's high-quality basic clothing, and the Undercover line of street-influences, high-end fashion. It represents the modern family style, and seeks to inspire the world from Tokyo." The 105-piece collection — made up of 34 items for women, 43 items for men, and 32 items for children and babies — hits stores March 16 and is priced from around $11 to $105. [Shophound, Racked]

The problem with a lot of "nude" lingerie these days is that designers fail to realize that we don't come in just three skin tones: fair, medium, and dark. That's why My Skins lingerie is so great. Granted, they don't have a color for every skin tone in the universe, but 20 color options is a far cry from the usual three. To help us find our perfect hue, My Skins has created a cool color matching app where you can match your skin tone to its color chart. From there, you can order My Skins bras and panties made in your chosen color. Pretty simple and genius. Why didn't anyone think of this before?
I enjoy being a girl. . . . If you find yourself romanced by ruffles, folds, and flowers start saving up because this Spring is all about frills. For those who oppose the dominant menswear trend, no fear, girliness is here. Channel your inner My Fair Lady, per Ralph Lauren (pictured), or simply have frilly fun.
