Have you dreamed of strutting down the sidewalks in red-soled Louboutins? Or do you wish you could channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with a perfect pair of Manolos? Don't think their price point is out of reach, because you can get a pair of pre-loved discount designer shoes for far less than your rent check. Companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective are making luxury shoes, handbags, and accessories more accessible to all of us.
Every month we're picking our favorite finds of pre-owned, great quality, designer bags, shoes, and more... but you're going to have to hurry to snag them before someone else scoops them up!
First they brought back scrunchies, now iconic '80s claw hair clips are totally en vogue again—thanks to Alexander Wang's Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week show. New "It" model Kaia Gerber (a.k.a. Cindy Crawford's lookalike daughter) rocked a throwback banana clip with "Alexander Wang" stamped on it, specially made by Wang's team of designers for the event. "It's a cool way to put your hair up and not feel too lady," stylist Guido Palau said to Vogue. We thick-haired ladies are all for it! Alexander Wang's claw hair clip will be on sale in the fall, but for now you can twist up your hair in these 10 accessories that are already in stores.
Editors' Top Finds
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.
Mon Purse has given us the ability to design our own handbags, and we aren't sure if we'll be able to stop at just one!
This just in: Women finally have their own funny corner of the internet, and it's called WhoHaha.
Flat riding boots are forever, and most of us own heeled booties that replace sexy sandals when summer fades. But sock boots are a new (and daring!) boot silhouette stepping out this fall and drop-kicking the classic standbys to the curb.
Toward the end of summer we begin itching for fall fashion, but the 90-degree forecasts don't exactly coincide with our wishes to wear layers upon layers. Ankle boots, though, can totally work for both seasons.
Learning the rules of style you can (and should) break can boost your confidence and help you develop a chic look of your very own. Many fashion rules were designed for a different era, and these 10 outdated guidelines are ones even the world's most stylish women aren't afraid to break.
Her new line gives full-figured women a chance to wear everything they've been told not to.
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.
Stitching up a party skirt is easy to DIY with the help of some readymade yardage from the fabric store that comes pre-hemmed and with an attached elastic band.
The BRCA test, a major breakthorugh in genetic science, can detect if a women pre-disposed to the breast cancer gene.
It has just been announced that the rockstar women of Star Wars are getting their own animated series and toy line come July 2017!
Katherine Heigl's gingham top, black boots, and bright bag are stylish. But with the midi trend walking the runways of Christian Dior and Miuccia Prada, it's her skirt that catches our eye. We love the maxi and the mini, but right now we're obsessed with the midi.
Katie Holmes will always be Joey Potter in my book, and this outfit is totally channeling the girl who lived down the creek. The slouchy sweater and trendy boots bring the denim skirt out of thrift store obscurity. Hoping to channel an outfit fit to get you Dawson and Pacey? Check out our picks for getting the look!
Finally! Kim K just announced the launch of her very own beauty line, KKWBeauty, during the Forbes Women's Summit on Tuesday.
