Spring Shoe Trends 2016: See Which Style Your Zodiac Sign Should Be Shopping

admin

Stressing over which new shoes to buy is a good problem to have, to be sure, but it's not fair to dismiss it as totally frivolous either. Unless you've got an unlimited budget, you're likely examining the spring 2016 season and thinking about both holes in your wardrobe and how much you can afford to spend on a fresh closet addition. Instead of hemming and hawing over what to commit to, trust in the stars. We examined the trends that came down the runways last September through a lens sharpened by astrological insight and deciphered which shoe trend would be best for each zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 to April 20)

Inspired by the satin ribbons of a ballerina's pointe shoes, statement-making wraps demand to be noticed. While the wearer can decide just how high to coil them, we know you, Aries; It's all the way up.

We’re Loving How the Stars Are Stepping Out in Winter White

Celebs seem to be forecasting the east coast's current winter weather, judging by how many style stars we've spotted in white as another smattering of snow is expected to hit early next week (don't worry, nothing Winter Storm Jonas caliber just yet). Not that we're complaining—these looks are seriously chic.

Take actresses Julianne Hough and Olivia Munn, who were virtual twinsies at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night party in San Francisco last night. Both ladies wore a white crop top and crisp trousers with an oversized blazer (and pretty much solidified our outfit choice for any upcoming date nights).

January Jones and Amy Adams were also matchy-matchy in all-white at the Vanity Fair Super Bowl Party, both sporting curve-hugging white dresses featuring long sleeves and a cropped-at-the-ankle hem to showcase sexy open-toe sandals.

And at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards on Friday, Kerry Washington and Viola Davis crushed the winter-white-on-red-carpet trend, sporting beautiful, wintery gowns.

Finally, Emma Watson attended a film premiere in Berlin donning an ultra-sleek white dress and snowy pumps (a look that was attention-grabbing enough to distract us from her newest hair change—those chic sideswept bangs).

Taylor Swift’s Chic Athleisure Style Is Giving Us Fitness Motivation for 2016

Taylor Swift is giving us some serious fitness motivation, but not in the way you might expect.

Taylor Swift's Chic Athleisure Style Is Giving Us Fitness Motivation for 2016

The singer has been spotted out in Los Angeles wearing a slew of covetable athleisure looks that showcase how to perfectly rock the must-wear trend for the start of the new year. Swift has found a way to perfectly mesh slouched beanies, cool kicks and stylish leather bags for an effect that is put-together while wholly ready for a hike or the treadmill. (With gym outfit inspo like this, we're happy to give in and hit the gym.)

She's also found an admirer in Kim Kardashian, who posted a photo of Swift to her Instagram account because Tay has been rocking—you guessed it—Kanye West's Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers.

10 Style Resolutions We’re Making This New Year

admin
158

We've all been there: It's New Year's Eve and we find ourselves vowing to change something for the coming year. Perhaps you want to hit the gym, attack a big project at work, or take a spontaneous vacation. Or maybe, if you're anything like us, you resolve to finally get your wardrobe in check. Because, let's be honest, it could definitely use a little TLC right about now.

As we enter 2016, we are armed with a long list of fashion resolutions to kick start the New Year. While we all want to toss clothing we haven't worn in a while, and infuse a little more life into our current wardrobes (don't worry, those are still on the list!), our resolutions go way beyond the traditional go-tos. Read them all below and pick out a few you want to tackle yourself!

10 Style Resolutions We're Making This New Year


  1. Step out of your comfort zone and try a bold trend. At least once.

  2. Appreciate the essentials. It may be the year to try new things, but infuse them into your look one at a time, taking care to build your 2016 wardrobe of essentials first, head-turning trends second.

  3. Trade in your never-take-them-off daily earrings in favor of an ear party.

  4. Force yourself to wear more color, especially on those days you just want to slip into head-to-toe black.

  5. Do a full closet clean-out. Anything you haven't worn in the last year goes.

  6. Take better care of the clothing you love most. Listen up, ladies! That means trips to the tailor and shoe repair before your favorite pieces are too far gone.

  7. Throw your grandmother's fashion faux pas out the window: Wear suede in the summer, pair deep black with hues of navy, sport pajamas outside, and rock white after labor day.

  8. While on the subject of our grandmothers, look to her for wardrobe inspiration. 2016 is the year to try a neck scarf, midi skirt, and statement brooches.

  9. Buy less, but shop more smartly. An investment piece is certainly not a decision to make flippantly, but raise your sophistication level for 2016 by avoiding thoughtless fast fashion purchases.

  10. Don't take yourself too seriously—both in your wardrobes and in life.

The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015

admin

The dawning of a fresh year means the chance to look forward. It also means the chance to toss the things you don't want to take along for the journey. Bad habits, sketchy dudes, sure, but also some questionable fashion trends. There was so much we loved in 2015 that jotting out a list of ready-to-be-retired looks was tricky, but we persevered. Herewith, the stuff we'd be totally fine never seeing again.

Super tiny, ultra-mini bags
The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015
We're all about the mini bag, but the mini mini? Not so much. Like all small things, it's adorable, but bags are meant to be practical. If you can't fit anything but a single credit card (much less the iPhone 6 Plus), it's just a bit on the ridiculous side.

Furry shoes
The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015
This year's biggest statement shoes were heavy on the fuzz, creating a vibe that looked comfortable, if impractical. Gucci's kangaroo fur-lined slides were a coveted it-item, with furry bits peeking out when being worn around the world's chicest sidewalks. The juxtaposition of all that softness on harder leather is an interesting look, but unless you're chauffeured everywhere, really—they would just get dirty.

The '90s overdose
The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015
The decade was back in a big way this year, from resurfacing fashion trends to the offspring of the era's most famous faces getting into modeling and acting. We like a little bit of nostalgia here and there (a skinny choker or a Clueless-inspired mini skirt), but, as with anything, too much of a good thing isn't necessarily the best.

Flatforms
The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015
We fully support the ankle-saving might of a pair of chunky flatforms, but still...there's something about the heavy look that's displeasing to the eye. The style offers up a lucrative bargaining chip—easily gaining a few extra inches—yet it can't compete elegance-wise with a basic flat sandal. Keep them in your closet, but wear hidden under flare jeans for a secret boost. For lightweight sundresses and the like, let's go back to delicate flats or classic heels.

Designer collaborations that never see the light of day
The Fashion Trends We Really (Really) Wish Would Stay in 2015
Don't get us wrong: Designer collaborations are rad, period. They let the creative brains behind high-fashion labels bring versions of their (often prohibitively expensive) collections to the masses, connecting with fans in a way that doesn't often happen: Reference Balmain's Olivier Rousteing, who stopped by a Paris location on the day his collab hit and took selfies with rabid fans. So while we never want these crossover collections to end, we'd love if 2016 became the year that there was more stock, allowing people to shop without fears of stampedes. Because we get it—when something's going for 3x its retail price on eBay, it's tempting to sell rather than wear.

You Have to See These Crazy Realistic Handbags Inspired By Adorable Cats

This is really happening: A Japanese woman who goes by Pico is incredibly talented at creating life-like (but totally not real) plush cats, and now she's begun making handbags. That's right—she crafts fuzzy replicas of small animals (dogs, birds, hamsters, and mice have all made appearances on her Twitter feed, along with felines). From there, she's worked at adding a shoulder strap, hollowed out interior, and zip closure to make the stuffed animals work as purses. Voila!

The 7 U.S. States Where Ankle Boots Are Still a Major Thing

admin

Move over thigh-highs and Chelseas: According to Google, the most-searched boot styles across the U.S. this season aren’t necessarily the most "on-trend."

Which, to be completely honest, is a little shocking. After all, we at Glamour spend a lot of time thinking about boots each fall—namely, which new runway styles we can't wait to try out. But alas Google has, once again, shown us that the boots we dream about all day long aren't exactly the ones that everyone else has got on the brain.

As part of an ongoing series with Google, we asked the search engine giant to help us uncover which of the 50 states searched the term “boots” most often. And, though we weren’t completely shocked that warm-weather states like Hawaii and Arizona didn’t make the list, we were surprised at some of the states that didn't even rank. (Ahem, Minnesota and Wisconsin! Perhaps Midwesterners buy winter boots so often they don't need to look them up on the Internet?) And beyond that, we were even more shocked at the types of boots that came up most often—kind of. Though, if you think about it, nothing's more American the style that clocked in at number one for most states on this list.

Scroll down to see the results—and let us know, are you surprised? One thing to keep in mind: Google has no way of separating search results by men and women.

Maybe that explains the high number of "work boots"?

Spring 2016’s Color Trends—Poppy Red, Chartreuse, Buttery-Yellow—Feel More Like Fall

admin
109

Remember a couple of seasons ago when spring color trends were all about candy-color pastels and sherbet hues? It was like an Easter basket exploded all over your clothes.

Spring 2016 will be nothing like that. If the ongoing Fashion Weeks have their way —��and let's face it, they probably will — next season you'll be wearing subdued, earthy tones: burnt apricot, forest green, pale yellow, rusty reds, and antique cream.

Basically, the��colors you normally reserve for fall will look just right when you break them out again next spring.

You may have been hoping for something more exciting (electric violet! hot pink!), but don't worry. Spring's hues may not be super cheery, but they are flattering on most skin tones. They also have the added bonus of look pretty great when paired with dark jeans. And, for the most part, you won't feel overly done up stepping out of the house in any of these colors —��though, there are some orange-reds (Altuzarra, Vera Wang) and acid-tinged chartreuses (Rag & Bone, Kaelen) that are definitely not for the faint of heart!

Scroll on for a peek at some of the shades that are dominating New York Fashion Week's spring 2016 runways, thus far —��and take note: Most of these shades are probably already available in stores now, so wear them now and you'll definitely be ahead of the curve.

Prediction: 4 Fashion Trends We’ll Be Seeing on the Emmys Red Carpet

Who's ready for some ballgowns?

The Emmy Awards are on Sunday night and while we don't have a crystal ball, we do have an expert on hand to predict the four major fashion trends we'll see on the red carpet. Fashion oracle and Net-a-Porter senior style editor, Tracy Taylor, outlined some of the major trends we'll be seeing on Sunday night, so that you can prep for the pre-show and impress your squad with how much you know about style.

Trend #1: Black and White
Prediction: 4 Fashion Trends We'll Be Seeing on the Emmys Red Carpet

Stella McCartney gown, $4,570, net-a-porter.com

"Nothing's more timeless on the red carpet, and this season we'll likely see it done in all kinds of silhouettes," Taylor tells Glamour. "Standard sweetheart necklines yes, but also more daring shapes that rely on the color combo to stay just a little safe."


Trend #2: Modern Romantics
Prediction: 4 Fashion Trends We'll Be Seeing on the Emmys Red Carpet

Alessandra Rich gown, $2,565, net-a-porter.com

Taylor forecasts dark lace and high necks with lace-up heels finishing off lots of looks. "There's something very relevant right now about a dark, gothic-like dress with a nod to the Victoriana age."

Trend #3: Bold Colors
Prediction: 4 Fashion Trends We'll Be Seeing on the Emmys Red Carpet

Oscar de la Renta gown, $9,290, net-a-porter.com

The Emmys kick off award show season and, as such, is a good time for Hollywood to make a style splash. "A bright pop of color is perfect, and one of the best ways to make a statement," she says.

Trend #4: Bohemian Luxe
Prediction: 4 Fashion Trends We'll Be Seeing on the Emmys Red Carpet

Etro gown, $3,000, net-a-porter.com

"This is a gorgeous option for the red carpet right now, and the key is to keep it really luxurious. Dresses should be paired with lush velvet and gold accessories, and definitely a killer heel, says Taylor." The key to making a maxi glamorous, not beachy, is to pick long-sleeves over bare arms and a fabric that has a heavier weight than something too floaty.


We'll be reporting on all the best dresses as they appear on Emmys night—come right back here to check them out! Until then, glance over the gowns we loved from last year's ceremony.

7 Fashion Trends We’re Really Ready to Be Done With

admin
247

Ahhh, the smell of a crisp, early fall day. It's time to start adding pumpkin to everything, thinking about booking holiday travel back home to see the fam, and—hurrah!—switch up the wardrobe. The segue into fall means busting out the sweaters and ankle boots and kissing good-bye to some trends we're ready to put to bed. This time last year we were rejoicing the end of ridiculously ripped jeans and mullet skirts. So...what are we over this time?

7 Fashion Trends We're Really Ready to Be Done With


1. Crazy scandalous sheer dresses: This kind of made-you-look number only really works on the red carpet (and even there, it can be iffy). Clever placement of embellishments or embroidery keeps the wearer from flashing anything too R-rated, but the entire purpose of the look is kinda to make it appear that you're naked. If Kate Middleton wouldn't wear it, you should think twice too.

2. Super chunky flatforms: Adding height while remaining comfortable is a major selling point of the flatform—and the No. 1 reason that we'd never want to banish the look entirely. Instead, we're over the flatform at its very chunkiest. Think 4-inch thick white platforms, Velcro straps galore, and a general feel of a summer camp sandal on steroids.

3. Patchwork denim: The colored skinnies of four years ago were replaced by patchy, mismatched denim this spring and summer. They provided a variation from the standard denim diet, but now we're over it. The brilliance of blue jeans is that they can work just as beautifully with T-shirts and ballet flats as they do stilettos and a sexy top. But patchwork jeans don't quite feel right with either...

4. Flash tattoos: If you're craving the glint of something shiny on your arm, put on a bracelet! The seen-everywhere accents no longer create that startling moment of "what's on that girl's wrist?" Instead, they're too commonplace to mystify. Store yours away to bring out for a throwback touch in future summers, replacing them with legit jewelry for fall.

5. Round sunglasses: Supermodels like Miranda Kerr and Behati Prinsloo love 'em, but perfectly circular shades will never read as elegant or chic as a classic cat eye or simple rectangle. If you're a fan, reserve yours for boho maxis and bikinis in the warmer months, switching to something simple for fall.

6. Wearing one earring: Blame this one on the fall '14 runways. Top designers styled models with one major earring on, leaving the other lobe bare. The look trickled through from runway to real way, never ceasing to look just a bit distracting (like, did that girl forget her other earring or no?).

7. "I Woke Up Like This" anything: It was clever at first and now...it's just not as much. We'll forever support celebs sharing snaps that remind us they're not always red-carpet ready (and women adding to the movement on the everyday). Hashtag it, sure, but maybe don't wear it on a T-shirt.

As for the new trends we're totally embracing? Come see which your zodiac sign should be shopping (and the looks you can totally find in the sale section).

10 Fall 2015 Runway Trends You Should Be Shopping on Sale

admin

Trends are typically hard to shop on sale—if you wait for them to reach the discount section, there's a risk that, well, they won't be trending any more. That said, if you examine the best runway trends from fall 2015 with an expert's eye, you'll notice both classic shapes and looks we've seen slowly becoming more and more popular. These are the guys you can successfully hunt for in the sale section right now. Since they're not brand brand new, there's stuff out there to shop, and their enduring popularity means everything will feel fresh for years to come.

Trend #1: double-breasted jackets and wide-leg trousers

"They key to successful sale shopping is to look for pieces that will stand the test of time, and a beautifully tailored pantsuit is a great investment. It's timeless and very much of the moment this season," Eve Thomas, fashion director at The Outnet, told us, pointing to the double-breasted, wide-leg varieties that walked the runway at shows like Gucci and Chloé.

Trend #2: metallic

Certain trends are so laser-focused that it feels nearly impossible they'll bubble back up within the next decade (think of the graphic word play that showed up frequently throughout the spring '14 collections or the spark for furry bag key chains that Fendi's Karlito spurred—cute, but without long-term staying power). Conversely, other trends reappear constantly, like metallic, spotted at both Louis Vuitton and Nonoo. Its perennial nature mean it's often cycling through the sale section.

Trend #3: pale pink

"Soft pink and rose tones have been around for a long time now, and Miuccia Prada cemented their value at the Prada show," Thomas pointed out. Since it's a shade that designers have been playing with for a while, you stand a good chance of scoring reductions on any remaining pieces from past collections.

Trend #4: bomber jackets

The sporty jacket has been trending upward for a few seasons now, meaning that some will surely have found their way to the sale section. "Bombers have been making a comeback for a little while, showing up again at the recent resort collections, a sure sign they're here to stay." It's a versatile trend and done in multiple fabrics, prints, and colors, allowing it to be a standout statement coat or your everyday, about-town pull-on.

Trend #5: flares

After the popularity of flared denim, get ready to see the silhouette come into all categories. Thomas notes it as a big trend she forecasts staying around through spring, so look to scoop up deals on pieces in lightweight fabrics or brights that you could pair with silky blouses post-fall too.

Trend #6: the '70s

Designers have been mining inspiration from the '70s for a few seasons now, resulting in every stylish aspect of the generation hitting store shelves (and, now, the sale rack). "The love affair with all things '70s has continued strongly into this fall," Thomas notes, suggesting shoppers look for maxiskirts and dresses, slim sweaters, embroidered pieces, and peasant blouses. "Look for delicate, silk-chiffon blouses and pussy bow detailing."

Trend #7: burgundy

Certain autumnal shades can be counted on time and time again to pop up on the fall runways, making them a smart investment now and forever. Case in point? Rich burgundy, done as coats, dresses, trousers, and more.

Trend #8: green

"Dark and army greens are another key trend color and a perennial fall neutral," Thomas said. The shade can be shopped casually in skinny jeans and button-ups or done more formally as office-ready dresses and evening attire.

Trend #9: jumpsuits

Whether casual or cocktail-ready, Thomas says "a jumpsuit is worth investing in. They've been around for a few seasons and have been cemented as a go-to for modern, busy women."

Trend #10: bright faux fur

The playful look of bright faux fur is sticking around, meaning that pieces from seasons past will look totally current all through this winter. The look can be as bold as you like, whether done in vivid hip-length coats or as simple accent spots on blazers and jackets.

As to what trends not to shop on sale? Anything that got your heart racing, but you doubt will have much shelf life. You'll want to wear them immediately, so buy when you find one you like (and look for high-street versions from shops that cater to of-the-moment designs, like Zara and H&M, so you won't risk feeling like you wasted your cash if it's a single-season trend).
