Straw basket bags are hotter than ever this summer, but they're not just for the beach. From oversized totes to tiny woven baskets to playful pom-pom clutches, the It accessory is ideal for Sunday brunch with your besties, date night at the movies, or just hitting the city streets. Though the gorgeous straw styles from Cult Gaia and Clare V. may not suit everyone's budget, you can still score the cool-girl cary-all for a steal. Here are 14 under-$50 straw bags we'll be carrying all season.
Finding a one-piece swimsuit for your body type can already be difficult, but when your bust size is DD and larger, it can seem an insurmountable feat. Can any of these trendy bathings suits actually support us busty gals frolicking around the beach or pool party? The short answer: Yes, thank goodness. Many bra and swim retailers are realizing that underwire one-piece swimsuits and other styles for bigger boobs are necessary, so we're getting super cute and hot options that actually fit. Try one of these, and feel secure in your next pool volleyball match.

Tweed is no longer just for college professors with elbow patches or stuffy old ladies who lunch. These days tweed has been reclaimed for edgy jackets, flirty dresses, and curve-hugging shorts. Still can't picture tweed outside a lecture hall? See our fabulous four ways to wear it, and we promise you'll have a new view on the trend.
When it comes to makeup trends for lips this fall, they're taking a trip to the deep end! We're talking yummy plummy shades, ultra-deep wines, dramatic burgundies, and oxblood reds. I encourage you to find a little vamp in yourself and try this dark plum lipstick look. I promise, you won't look like you shop at Hot Topic or bite bat heads off because you'll be right on trend!
When we want to dress up or make an outfit look a little nicer, a pair of sky-high heels is usually the first place we turn. But whether you're battling blisters, walking a ton, or just bored with your heels at the moment, there are times when a comfortable pair of flats is too good to pass up. Luckily, there are some amazingly fancy flats out there, so your outfits (and feet) don't have to suffer. Leave your pumps at home and slip on a pair of sophisticated pointy-toe flats, pretty leopard loafers, or chic ballet flats—we've got 20 perfect pairs for you to choose from!
Hot chocolate just might be the best part of winter. It's decadent and delicious, and it warms you up faster than a Snuggie straight out of the dryer. Who would turn down chocolate, arguably one of the best creations known to man, when it's melted down to a thick, rich liquid? What's more (yes, there's more!), hot chocolate accoutrements hardly end there--think cayenne pepper, pumpkin puree, and even Fluffernutter. If you're craving a steaming cup of cocoa this season, go beyond the usual mix of instant powder. There's a wide world of hot chocolate recipes like these just waiting to be tried, tasted, and treasured.
September 8 is the official launch date for Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line, and the diverse teasers are getting us totally excited for the inclusive collection.
You know the drill. Pull the jeans on then quickly twist your body around and check out your butt. If it looks good, you’re happy and ready to purchase. If it doesn’t, you’re making a beeline for the leggings department. Instead of getting discouraged, we just need to understand what actually makes a pair work for our particular body type. First clue: It’s all about tricking the eyes.Here are a few tips to keep in mind the next time you’re looking for jeans that will make the most of your assets.
Winter means sledding, frost on windows, boozy hot chocolate by the fireplace, and conquering the black diamond slope you wouldn’t even look at last year. Winter means candy canes and ice skating and new scarves. Winter also means an endless supply of wool pants. But there is a solution to the doldrums of the grey winter wool. And we have it: Colored tights. See? We have an answer for everything.
This fall is all about going bold. Play with textures like velvet, leather, and tartan plaid. Try out graphic crop tops layered under denim dungarees. Footwear sees a return to chunky boots. It's a season ripe for experimentation and fun! Even more so if your fashion tastes tend to stray toward the unusual and extreme. Here are a few of our favorite fall fashion trends being rocked by tough girls and pointers for wearing them yourself.
Alcohol lifts us high and crashes us down, usually by way of terrible side effects like temporary vertigo (aka “the spins”) and what I like to call selective memory (aka blackouts, brownouts, or “I did what last night?!”). Almost everyone who drinks has experienced at least one of the discomforting and embarrassing side effects of alcohol. But how do they happen in the first place?
Sun protection can sometimes seem like a hassle. First there’s like three types of sunscreen (face, lips, body) and then you have to reapply what seems like every five minutes. But sun protection that justifies a new accessory purchase and looks totally chic? That’s one we can get on board with. So we found 12 cute hats—from floppy hats to fedoras to baseball caps—that will not only protect your pretty face, they’ll make your outfit as well!
Today, I'm talking new holiday makeup collections. I don’t know about you, but I’m always eager to see all the new holiday makeup this time of year as we get closer to Christmas and the New Year. It’s usually around this time the collections are unveiled, and it’s always a treat to see what festive goodies are coming our way! I’ve got a little preview of my favorite holiday makeup including coveted collections that have just been released.
Out with the old, and in with the new. But wait—not so fast. We’re giving you clear-eyed, full-hearted permission to abandon some of the year’s more, erm, troubling fashion trends. Specifically, weird headgear, spiked boots, drop-crotch harem pants, and festival chic (AKA “the dirty hippie look”) can peacefully fade into oblivion like so many nameless trends of yesteryear that we no longer devote brainspace to. (A good rule of thumb: Ask yourself “WWMKOD?” or “What would Mary-Kate Olsen do?” If the answer is “Wear it out with her sketchy old-man boyfriend!” then toss it in the trash immediately. There are, however, a few trends that are worth holding onto…in 2013 and beyond.
Hot Topic has released a line of Marvel heroine-inspired outfits, and they're as fabulous as they are fierce!
A lot of people assume that wearing painful pumps and blister-causing booties just comes with territory when you’re a supermodel. Well, there’s definitely some truth to that! But if there’s one thing attending fashion week after fashion week taught me, it’s that there are also several things you can do to make all that hot footwear a little more wearable. So since we’re right at the start of boot season (and since comfort is even more important to Mama Molly than it was to Model Molly) I thought I’d share four of my tricks for breaking in new boots.
