Thanks to New York mag's indispensable guide, YourTango has discovered the softer side of Fashion's Night Out, since we're all about finding romance in everyday life. Where can you get pampered with a free hand massage? Where can you sip on free champagne? Where are all the hunky male models?
As Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week officially starts today in New York, (celebrated with tonight's Fashion's Night Out), we're getting ready to spot some famous faces in stores and sitting in the front rows at Lincoln Center. While we typically see female celebs coming out to support their favorite designers, it's always great to spot a celebrity couple. Knowing that they're bonding over their appreciation for expertly designed couture and ready-to-wear items proves that love and fashion really do go hand-in-hand.
Here in NYC, you live and breathe fashion whether you like it or not. With an office near Seventh Avenue (also known as Fashion Avenue), smack dab in the middle of the Fashion Institute of Technology campus, we get our morning mocha at Moda Espresso Bar and our evening shopping on at the Barney's Warehouse Sale. And with Fashion Week just around the corner, it's even harder to ignore that lovely, mysterious world.
While summer is all about staying cool, fall is synonymous with hot fashion. H&M shows us the season's must-have basics to team with your evergreen favorite pieces. Autumn style is bold but refined thanks to Style Counsel presented by H&M.
Is it ever okay for an employer to judge you by your bling? Unlikely, but a recent essay in The Huffington Post warns that a diamond on your left ring finger could be detrimental in the job market, whether it's fair or not. Some say it suggests you're rich and don't really need the work, so it diminishes your case when asking for a raise. Others find it as distracting as a miniskirt. Whatever the reason, some employers fess up to finding engagement bling tacky.

Summer's almost over—and with fashion trends promising bold, bright colors and '70s-inspired hemlines, you can’t afford to be shy.

A lot of us have silly superstitions, but who wouldn't be tempted to keep wearing a "Little Black Dress" on first dates if said dress has an 100-percent success rate? The New York Post's Christina Amoroso is the lucky owner of this seemingly-charmed piece. The writer noticed a trend emerging every time she broke out her basic H&M LBD to wear on first dates... she always got a second-date invite. Intrigued by its apparent magic, she continued to wear the dress and it continued to produce remarkable results. Crazy!
The web is ablaze over a French Vogue shoot that made 10-year-old model Thylane Blondeau look like an adult—face painted in thick make-up and feet clad in high heels as she sprawls out on a leopard-spotted couch. Should a child be donning this sexy look?
There are so many things to be concerned about before heading out on a first date: where to go, what to talk about, what not to talk about, etc. And yet, the number one question I always get from my clients who are about to meet someone for the first time is "What do I wear?" It may seem shallow, but how you dress on a first date is actually pretty important. Follow these five tips to make sure your outfit gets his approval.
We recently discovered a company called MiX Bikini, which makes bikinis made of pieces that you can mix and match in creative ways. If you want your right boob to be a different color from your left boob to be a different color from your bikini bottoms, well, you gotta get yourself some of these! They're really fun: Prints range from skulls to argyle and there are all sorts of bright prints and colors.
Choosing the perfect wedding attire is quite a daunting task for about almost everybody invited to a nuptial, so here are some tips from The Gloss to guarantee a fashion ensemble that will have you turning heads, but of course, not outshining the brides and grooms.
Most of y'all (and I mean ladies), think men like spring and summer clothes strictly via a less-is-more axiom. And while nothing could be closer to the truth, it's not the whole truth. In many ways what guys like about summer fashion (and women's clothing in general) can be best measured in reverse. We're better at telling you what we hate and here's what it is.
I say this with love and good humor—men get older, they don't really grow up. Most learn how take on responsibility, be good parents and partners, and live like good citizens, but some portion of them remains in the locker room. So when I asked my dear husband his opinion on what he likes to see women wear, his immediate reply was "nothing." I wasn't surprised. After pressing him for something more helpful, he supplied this list: First, a little about "nothing." Men worry far less about the appearance of their middle-aged bodies than we do about ours. We're more inclined to cover up what we think is less than perfect, but they don't see us nearly as critically as we see ourselves. We may see a tummy and thighs we wish were firmer, but they see a naked woman that they're crazy about. As long as they still like to look, there's a live spark in there. So stoke it!
Ahhh, summer has finally arrived. And with the long, lazy days and super-hot temperatures comes another seasonal staple: Weddings! Excited yet? Well, you should be. All you really need is the perfect outfit. Yes, there are nuptial-attire rules, but they're not that hard to master. (I can totally help. Just read on.)
As women, by nature, we always knew we were a bit more fashion-savvy than our male counterparts, but we never realized just how much sway we really had in their style choices. When it comes to male wardrobes, guys rely on their wives and girlfriends to assemble more than half of the contents. Australia's Herald Sun reports that women pick out and purchase 51 percent of the clothing in their guys' closets, whereas the men themselves only buy 30 percent.
