In fashion, what once was will resurrect itself, time and time again. The Nineties ressurgence is still hangin’ on, and a multitude of next-gen chokers have come back into favour. This statement necklace is an easy way to make that tee and jeans combo look fresh!
Annie Clark aka St. Vincent possesses some of the most visually arresting personal style even far as rockers go. The Grammy winner, multi-instrumentalist and gal pal always looks damn good.
Chuck Taylor All Stars go with everything. Perhaps not an Oscar dress, but anything short of an extremely formal gown looks wonderfully laid back with a pair. Even a suit looks great with them! In a myriad of colors and a wide range of sizes, I’d go so far as to say they’re a wardrobe classic.
The robot uprising, the porcupine problem, places you can hike, cool puzzles, curriculum, a man that’s a goat, octopi are aliens I guess, Shirley Manson, sexual healing with witches, we buy lots of books, Mey for president and so much more!
Ten outfits (+ a bonus from Jenna Lyons) to make you want to wear all white before Labour Day, and long after.
Blogger and HBIC extraordinaire Gabi Fresh just released her lookbook with ASOS. Sumptuous and opulent, it’s refreshing to see such a fashion forward, trend aware collection made exclusively for plus sized bodies.
Ilana Glazer’s namesake character on Comedy Central’s “Broad City” often has me yelling at the computer screen, gushing over whatever she’s thrown together. Two parts Forever21 and one part Tumblr, Ilana encapsulates what I love the most about summer style (even though she seems to wear it year round).
But you know what is great about being a queer gal or boi? Not giving a hoot about social norms around what “respectable ladies” are supposed to look like.
I’m intrigued by the ways that makeup can be both feminizing and masculinizing, often at the same time. As I started working on this project, I realized that’s been true for a long time.
Including Autostraddle’s own Lydia and A-Camper Magda!
I found everything I was looking for, except myself.
Blogger, stylish human and businesswoman extraordinaire Nicolette Mason wed her longtime partner Ali Talan at Wythe Hotel in NYC this weekend in what just might be the cutest gay wedding ever.
Fashion world, you’ve done us wrong and here are our demands.
As fun as fashion can be, there are many supposed “rules” to dressing your fine self. It’s something that makes getting outfitted a very overwhelming process; which of these laws should be followed? I’m going to let you in on a secret… You don’t need to listen to a single one.
Chill people unite: joggers are the new normal. Joggers live in the realm of clothes you wanna wear around the house during a Broad City marathon and keep wearing when you hit up the grocery store/ambiguous queer hangout/night out.
Black women at the helm of protests, fundraisers to support, gay marriage on tribal lands, Grace Ellis talking about Lumberjanes, the history of jeans in women’s protests, taking up space, a serial killer and the cops that didn’t give a fuck, sex workers, female engineers, rattlesnakes, nanoscale tubes, a dancing baby, the class divide, and so much more!
One of the best kept secrets of style is how to look “put together” with minimal effort. It’s something I’ve only recently come to understand, and it starts by building an arsenal of basic, goes-with-everything items. This sweet look is a perfect example of how simple and perhaps ordinary pieces can come together for a look that is sharp and pretty damn cute.
It’s of little surprise that the “oxford” or “brogue” has gained popularity in non-formal environments. Since many associate this shoe with school uniforms, itchy polyester and ill-fitting suits, it may be troublesome to find a way to incorporate lace-ups into a casual look. But wearing these bomb ass shoes is a breeze. I’m gonna show you how!
“Evan Rachel Would”? Damn right, Evan Rachel Would.
If you need me between now and late fall, you can find me poolside, roadside, on the metro, at work, laying in the bench in my bay window, and grocery shopping in the same silhouette: a crop top and high-waisted bottoms.
