All Kinds Of Fab
I wasn't even going to post this pic, but the more I look at it...the more I laugh:
I see it took 0.6 seconds for Kev to be creeping back to Shar. And if you think this was just for Thanksgiving....whatev.
India Arie was spotted at the Third Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani's in NY last night:
Ludacris joined Aldo (one of my fave shoe stores) to help promote World AIDS Day yesterday at the Beverly Center:
John Legend was in concert at Club Revolution in Fort Lauderdale yesterday:
There's something different about Johnny Boy.......
BE Magazine's cover celebration honoring Egypt at Guest House/Home went down in NY yesterday:
Swizz Beats came out to kick it.
And Bree came out to support.
Ashanti and Jibbs hit up MTV's Sucker Free show yesterday:
Jibbs kicked it:
- Snoop Dogg must love the pen. Story
- Jennifer Holiday is pissy about how the new Dreamgirls movie is turning out. Story
Claire Sulmers, who hosts her own fashion blog that I love called The Fashion Bomb, is today's guest contributer for more fall/winter fashion trends. She also writes for Essence and Upscale magazines. Check out her contribution for YBF:
School girl chic is the rule for Fall/Winter 2006, but leave your Mary Janes and knee highs at home! Bring it back the right way with plaid pieces, and show you're grown by pairing it all with boots or pumps.
Eve knows wassup:
Her pretty plaid looks great with footless tights and peep toes.
Naomi Campbell also strutted her style on the runway:
And rocked her plaid jumper with a mocha brown silk shirt.
Another option: wear a fitted plaid jacket with a black top and dark wash jeans:
While there are so many ways to wear plaid the right way, there are times when keeping it plaid goes wrong. Let me school you:
Don't sport your classy plaid with a milk maiden shirt and 20 pounds of weave!
Foxy was kind enough to teach us Lesson 2:
Don't wear your plaid from head to toe (and please chuck that bright ass Wet & Wild Lip Gloss)!!
Finally, Lesson 3: definitely don't go the lumberjack route by pairing a bulky jacket with skinny jeans and bulky boots:
Just. A. Mess. Can someone please quarantine this woman's stylist???
My plaid picks? Save on this affordable dress by Necessary Objects or splurge on this gorgeous jacket by Brindleburr.
Sultry sweater dresses are also a must have for the fall/winter transition.
Pair your cozy knit with a kimono belt and hot high boots like Monica:
Or rock your frock with great tights, mid-length boots, and stunner shades like Kimora:
Always fashionable Amerie had the right idea pairing her sweater dress with a braided belt, tights, and short boots:
But then forgot to leave her H.A.M friends at home:
She might've ruined her whole 'fit with her crispy company.
Cute sweater dresses are available at any price point. Save on this dress by Frenchi or splurge with this hot pocketed sweater dress by Diane Von Furstenberg.
For my fellas:
Word on the street is that hoodies are a must.
Hoodies can be classy, like this tweed option on T.I.:
Or sporty like this snazzy design covered hoodie on Jay-Z:
If you wear a casual hoodie, keep it crunk in loud colors like Luda (note the matching sneaks):
Or dabble in both design and color like Young Jeezy:
Word of warning on the hood front: please leave your sweaty, washed out, gym hoodies where they belong: in the gym!
Yes, I'm talking to you Game:
Neither cute nor fabulous.
Good hood picks? Try this hoodie by Ecko Unlimited or splurge on this hoodie by Swagger.
Stay tuned for future trend watches and advice on how (and how not to) rock 'em.
