Block Heels

Dance the night away in this season’s most comfy shoe

When you’re getting ready, one of the easiest ways to feel sexier and more put-together is by throwing on a heel. They don’t need to be those crazy high spike heels (although for short periods of time you may whip those out), they just need to be comfortable, chunky and current. For nights that you know you’ll be on your feet or hey, maybe even dancing, stick to fall’s most essential shoe style, the block heel

From ’60s-inspired ankle boots and Mary Janes to loafers and strappy sandals, shop our editors’ favorite block heeled footwear from across the web.

How Scott gets a haircut:

Haircut Woman: How do you want your hair done?

Me: Uh, just whatever you think would look best.

Haircut Woman: More of a crew cut? Or more of a taper cut?

Me: Uh, whichever of those is just a regular hair cut.

Haircut Woman: A little more along the sides? Or a little less along the sides?

Me: I’m not sure. I really don’t know much about haircuts, why don’t you just do whatever you think will look best?

Haircut Woman: All right, whatever I think will look best. And do you want that done with the scissors, or the clippers?

Me: Whatever’s easiest for you.

Haircut Woman: What about the length?

Me: I don’t know, normal length.

Haircut Woman: The lengths are numbers, one to ten.

Me: Uh, seven. Whatever.

Haircut Woman: Seven all over, or seven in the front but less in the back?

Me: Please, please, please stop asking me questions I do not know anything about haircutting I just want something that makes me look like a person with slightly shorter hair I am really sorry but beyond that I cannot help you just start cutting.

Haircut Woman: Okay (begins cutting)

Me: (Phew! Peace and quiet at last!)

Haircut Woman: So! How about that weather, huh?

Me: (Aaaaaaah! Panic mode! Abort conversation however possible!)  Oh, I’m terribly sorry, I have a rare disease that prevents me from talking and getting my hair cut at the same time.

Haircut Woman: (Makes a mental note to write down on her Tumblr tonight about the horrible classist sexist white guy she met today who refused to even talk to her just because she was a haircutter and not some sort of bigshot white person like him) That’s all right. Anyway, is this the right way of doing the edges, or should I re-edgify them further?

Me: Uh, no, that’s fine.

Haircut Woman: And should I do the sideburns with a parabolic hypercut, or the New Guinea sinusoidal wave cut?

Me: Uh, whichever you prefer.

Haircut Woman: You know, I think your hair would look really good if I did the back in a sort of truncated icosahedral pattern, is that all right? Or do you want something more irregular?

Me:FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HAIRCUTS AND I HAVE NO STRONG AESTHETIC PREFERENCES I JUST WANT MY HAIR TO BE SHORTER THAN IT IS RIGHT NOW PLEASE JUST STOP ASKING ME QUESTIONS AND GIVE ME WHATEVER HAIRCUT YOU THINK WOULD LOOK BEST AND I SWEAR I WILL BE OKAY WITH IT.

Haircut Woman: Well, okay.

(the Haircut Woman clips for a few minutes, then hands me a mirror)

Me: Whatever.

Leather Weather

Hot pant styles you need in your closet

Leather pants are a cold weather necessity. Their thick material keeps you warm, plus nothing looks better with a chunky sweater or an oversized coat than sleek black, smooth fabric. From sexy to slouchy, see how models like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alessandra Ambrosio wear their leather bottoms and shop our favorite pieces to get the winter-ready look today.

Leather Leggings

For a sexy, slimming approach to a leather pant, go for a legging. Take a note from Olivia Palermo and wear your cropped leggings with a sweater coat and classic loafers for an easy, big city look. Or try something retro-inspired like Rosie’s airport style with a ribbed sweater, overcoat, fedora and pants tucked into booties.

Leather Trousers

For a more relaxed, comfortable take on the leather pant, try a leather trouser. They’re slouchy and have that tomboy look. Wear your pants with a band tee like model Alessandra Ambrosio or drape a coat over a turtleneck in a cropped version with ankle boots like blogger Camille Over the Rainbow.

If It's Not Baroque, Please Fix It

I’ve been digging the Boroque movement for some time now. The fire was lit when Olivier Rousteing’s (Balmain) fall collection hit the runway and I belted out a fabulous opera rendition of Backstreet Boys’ “You are…my fire, my one…desire.” I actually sounded better than Bocelli. No I didn’t, but I sometimes wish I did. The collection was a rock n roll remix of the Boroque trend. With boxy silhouettes and black leather accents paired with ornate beading and faberge patterns, I couldn’t get enough. 

Now, more than ever the craving to boroque-ify has struck and I think it has something to do with the holiday spirit. 5th Avenue is practically shouting at you “Get festive, OR ELSE.”  Still not on board the Boroque train? Here’s some magtastic inspo for ya:

Ornate detailing, brocade, lace, velvet, black and gold, it’s like the holiday season came to life…ON THEIR BODEHS.

Now how can I edgify the baroque look, you may ask. To that I say, it’s all about juxtaposition. Don’t take it too literally. Choose one element that speaks to you - lace, velvet, gold, brocade - and mix it with something unexpected like chambray, white jeans, colored leather, a baseball cozy cap, wedge kicks and/or a gingham bow tie. Play with it till you start doing the mirror dance and BAM, you’re baroque-ified.
