Alexander Wang Loves a Working Girl for Pre-Fall 2012

Edited by

Unlike his cool and sporty Spring collection, Alexander Wang had something much more tailored in mind for Pre-Fall 2012. Sharp leather pieces worn over sheer plaid and houndstooth prints injected a structured, menswear feel to a collection that keeps the New York City working girl so obviously in mind. There is burnout, there is smokey color blocking, there is an oversized sunglasses case worn as a clutch – really, what’s not love? We obsess over this gallery just a little more every time we see it.

You’re Here, You’re Queer, Get Into It: Picking the Perfect Coming Out-fit

Edited by

Today is October 11th, better known as National Coming Out Day — the day when all excuses for “drunken” late night hook-ups, all half-hearted reasoning behind “accidental” brushes against the thigh and innumerable piles of carefully hidden porn come tumbling out of the closet. After all, it’s 2011 and being gay is okay. You can kind of get married — if you live in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire or Washington D.C. — and you can openly serve in the military — as if you would either way — so what’s not to be proud of? And sure, being gay’s not all is cracked up to be — it really doesn’t get that much better — but it’s still better than living a lie that no one nor their mother is buying. So go head, Mary, wave that rainbow flag and blast your Lady Gaga ’cause lady you were born this gay.

How to Transform Fall Trends into Spring

Edited by

Extending your clothing from Spring to Fall is relatively simple – they become your bottom-most layers as you build above them for the cold. But what about Fall into Spring? Those pieces are thick and warm, often too much so for the weather. It’s tricky, but I’ve plucked out some pieces you might have scooped up this fall, and I’ll show you how to work them into your wardrobe this spring.

How to Stylishly Stay Disease-Free on Public Transportation

Edited by

In New York City, or any big city for that matter, it is impractical to drive a car around every day. Congratulations, you are being green by default! But even in cities where the public transportation isn’t quite as convenient, ditching your car during Earth Month is an eco-friendly alternative to getting around. If you’re reluctant to get on the bus or subway because you’re afraid of everyone’s nasty germs floating around, not to fear. FashionIndie is going to tell you how to stylishly stay disease-free on public transportation so both you and the Earth can breathe a sigh of relief.

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Recreated My Thrift Coat

Edited by

Today Jean-Charles de Castelbajac showed this phenomenal red plaid fringed coat with slightly cropped ‘n’ rolled cuffs and center front buttons. A week ago, I happened to purchase a red plaid fringed coat with slightly cropped ‘n’ rolled cuffs and center front buttons… at the Salvation Army. Am I a fashion future seer or did Jean-Charles somehow see me and quickly add it to his collection?

Sonia Rykiel Wove a Rainbow of Pattern & Texture for Fall 2011

Edited by

There’s something magical about that initial cool day off fall when it’s time to wear a new sweater. Whether the first day of school or bundling up on a sunny Saturday for the outdoor flee market, the excitement of taking a new fall outfit on its maiden voyage still puts butterflies in my stomach. Sonia Rykiel understands, and the vision for her Fall 2011 collection shown during Paris Fashion Week came through in Fair Isle knits, colorful plaids and bright, luscious furs. Sweater dresses were modernized with sheer sleeves, and fitted cigarette pants had panels of plaid fabric down the sides. Evening wear was offbeat yet chic – dresses of all lengths included metallic stripes, and deep cutouts in the front and sides required one of the fabulously electric fox stoles for warmth. Polar opposite footwear spiced-up action below the ankles, including creepers and pointy toe patent leather pumps. Though eccentric in color and composition, I would be delighted to wear pieces from this collection on my first fall adventure.

Top 10 Best Dressed Man Bands of All Time

Edited by

Music is just about the ultimate sensory satisfaction. The songs that enliven your soul are created by gods of rock that don’t dare stop at the auditory; the sensation is full faceted. They may not call it fashion, but the greatest bands on the planet know in their blood that how they look helps drive the succes of the music itself. That way, when chicks like me are getting their groove on in the audience, we’re dancing with the pure sexiness on the stage before us – sound, body and soul. Here are the 10 bands* that do it best; fusing their sound to their clothes, dressed the way they rock.
