A “Pachucha” (Mexican-American women in zoot suits) Rosie From Boyle Heights In The 1940s. (via)

‘A zoot suit (occasionally spelled zuit suit) is a men’s suit with high-waisted, wide-legged, tight-cuffed, pegged trousers, and a long coat with wide lapels and wide padded shoulders. This style of clothing became popular among the African American, Chicano, Filipino American, and Italian American communities during the 1940s.’ (wiki)

Grey Area

Go monochrome in head-to-toe grey

Sometimes you just want to avoid color and the best alternative to your blacks and whites is the shade that lies in middle, grey. The smoky hue looks great when mixed and matched with various tones in the same spectrum. Pair your light gunmetal with dark charcoal for the perfect head-to-toe monochrome look. 

Inspiration: Spring 2015 Street Style 

Spotted on the streets on NYC, model Jessica Hart and fashion editor Barbara Martelo took a business casual, androgynous approach to grey dressing.

The Top 5 Faces to Watch in 2015

Keep an eye on these soon-to-be fashion favorites

Each year, fashion makes room for a fresh crop of faces that show promise in raw talent and personal style. Looking ahead, we made a list of the top five girls that we’ll be watching in 2015, from an up-and-coming musician to an Insta-famous model. Scroll down to see who’s on our radar right now, and snag their individual styles below.

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs is about to take the music and fashion worlds by storm. After dancing backup for artists like Kylie Minogue and Ed Sheeran, the 27-year-old English singer-songwriter released her first album in August of last year, and has since landed a coveted spot in Coachella’s 2015 lineup. Not to mention she has already appeared on the cover of i-D and in the pages of Vogue. This girl is going places.

Bella Hadid

Younger sister to model Gigi, 18-year-old Bella Hadid has already signed with model agency IMG, walked the runway at New York Fashion Week and appeared on the cover of Jalouse, and she hasn’t even finished her first year of college yet (she’s studying photography at the New School in New York). Expect to see much more of this young up-and-comer in 2015.

Léa Seydoux

When a new French face is on the rise, we take notice. 29-year-old Léa Seydoux is the latest actress to make a name for herself in the US, with an iMDB page that includes the films Inglourious Basterds, Blue is the Warmest Color and The Grand Budapest Hotel. On the fashion front, she has appeared in Vogue and in campaigns for Rag & Bone and Miu Miu. Set to play the next Bond girl later this year, we’d say she’s on her way to becoming a breakout star.
