Round-Up: New Year’s Eve Refreshments

We meant refreshments for your stomach and for your look. So, the entertainment is set (tunes or what-have-you), but is your drink game on lock? We’ve rounded up five drink recipes to save the day (errr, night), plus some NYE additions.

  • Cotillion Club Punch yields 275-300 servings (say what?!) for a truly booze-packed party. (We weren’t super serious about this one, but if you do make it let us know how it goes.)
  • For something way more reasonable, this pomegranate-champagne punch yields 12 servings and sounds absolutely delicious.
  • Any grandma who serves a brandy slush is one that we want to be our BFF.
  • Your cozy childhood hot apple cider just got a heavy-handed dose of grown-up reality. We’re not complaining.
  • Wassail (translation: “be healthy”) is a traditional cider drink usually made with booze, but this non-alcoholic version is a nice alternative for guests who don’t imbibe.
  • And finally, this fall sangria is a tasty option for those who love chardonnay.

But speaking of NYE, your #OOTN wouldn’t be complete without makeup and a clutch to hold your essentials. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites below. Bonus: they can all be used over and over for other special occasions.

Clutches to hold your cash and phone.

 Makeup for a rosy glow, kissable lips, eye-opening lashes, and the perfect cat eye.

Sweater Weather: Fall Knit Trends

Yeah, we said trends, but what we really meant to address is one specific sweater trend: oversized, fluid fits. And we feel it’s especially fitting for a season rife with Netflix marathons, cozy dinners, and windy weather. Oversized sweaters are totally A+ at hiding a soup food baby. (Total tangent, but LA sort of had “fall” weather this past weekend. It was a miracle.) Anyway, check out these lovely ladies sporting snuggly fall sweaters. Which one is your fave? (We’re partial to Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper in a cropped tomato red number.)

10 Trends (Under $10) To Try Before Summer Ends!

Oh, no… It’s August. We’re one month closer to the first day of school. There’s only one month left for that summer vacation you’ve been saving up for. Seriously? Only one month left to find that perfect BAE to summer fling it with? Oh, the humanity! September marks (for many of us) the end of summer fun…therefore September is our new worst enemy (second to whoever started that nasty rumor that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are divorcing…noooooooo!). So for the next four weeks, we’re kicking it into high gear. Or should we say high-fashion gear? (You like what we did there?)

GoJane is all about the trends, and we’re not letting this summer end without making sure all the ladies and fabulous gents out there have tried all this season’s trends. The best thing about this list? All these summer trends are under $10. Yup. This list of must-have goodies just got that much sweeter.

$10. Basic Bodycon Dresses

Once it gets chilly outside, you’re gonna wish it was still warm enough to prance around town in a skimpy little number like this. You better take advantage of your summer bod and get it right and get it tight (the dress, that is).

$9. Brave + Bold Accessories

This summer was all about loud prints. But not everyone was down to rock this look head-to-toe, nor were they brave enough to let a main piece do all the talking. Our solution to that? Just choose one accessory and make sure it adds all the printed-punch your outfit needs.

$8. Summer Sayings Tees + Tanks

We know your summer agenda is full of do this, do that, and definitely must do these types of things. You’re basically trying to cram a whole year’s worth of fun, fun, fun into a few months of sun. There’s no time for chit-chat. But you can still get your point across with the help of a graphic  top. Just let your shirt do all the (shit) talking.

Killin' It Graphic Racer Back

$7. Throwback/Comeback Jelly Sandals

The best comebacks of the summer? Jennifer Lopez, carbs (thanks to cronuts), and jelly sandals. The instant you slip these suckers on, you’ll be inundated with memories of nighttime bike riding sessions with your neighborhood homies, hopscotching with your sisters, and sticky hands from melted Popsicles that you just couldn’t slurp up fast enough. Now that’s summer!

Missing Link Jelly Thong Sandals

$6. A Taste Of The Tropic…Prints

A trip to Bora Bora will cost you a pretty penny (more like a million pennies). So let’s give off that island-girl vibe with tropical prints. The moment you slip on a palm tree printed tank or a birds of paradise covered maxi dress, you’re gonna be transported to a world where coconuts are stemware and grass skirts look best on hunky bronzed boys.

Tropical Print Scarf

$5. Round(about) Sunglasses

The aviator is classic. The wayfarer is totally hip. But something about giant round sunnies says, “I’m kinda weird…but in that super fun and flirty way.” Like Kate Husdon in Almost Famous kinda weird.

Round Metallic Wire Frame Sunglasses

$4. Lacy + Racy Leggings

You’re not really a music festival queen until you’ve worn a pair of these rock goddess-inspired lacy leggings. They’re sexy, edgy, lightweight, and totally badass. Make Janis Joplin proud and get you a pair of these summertime bottoms.

All Laced Up Sheer Leggings

$3. Functional (& Totally Fun) Headbands

Summer is one sweaty season. Yes, sweat is sexy when it’s dripping off of Cristiano Ronaldo, but it’s not as sexy when it’s dripping off of your forehead and into your BFF’s mojito. Stop the sweat in its tracks with a sweet little headband. They’re best worn with messy buns and a little bit of coyness.

Lace Meets Floral Headband

$2. In-Yo-Face Neon Swimwear

You worked extra hard for that bikini body. So why go unnoticed in a boring bathing suit? Make sure all eyez are on you in a brightly hued swimsuit. Neon colored swim isn’t just for volleyball players from 1980s rom-coms. They’re made for you and your wonderful summer squatting azz!

Twist Front Bikini Brief Bottoms

$1. Candy-Coated Lips

Remember those crazy colored lips you’d get after sucking on a lollipop or a Popsicle on a hot summer’s day? Yeah, that’s the same idea here…but way less calories.

A Case For Palazzo Pants

Is hot weather making you a miserable, sweaty mess? (Ugh!) Sure, summer is the prime season for shorts, but not all of us have Cara Delevingne’s thigh gap. So we’ll have to make do with getting rid of chafing and swass (that’s swamp-ass) with stylish panache. Enter our savior: palazzo pants.

Wide, lightweight, breathable, and ultra comfy. Who’s excited to wear socially acceptable pajamas out in public? *Raises hand* So, have we convinced you yet?

Three Tips:

  • Try them out with a cropped top for a leg lengthening silhouette.
  • Pair them with a button-up shirt and blazer for a sleek update.
  • Tuck in slouchy tees or tanks for waist definition.

Check out our GoJane palazzo pant picks below:

Palazzo Pants

 1. Wide Leg Pants, 2. Contrast Zigzag Split Palazzo Pants, 3. Floral Lace Inset Flared Pants, 4. Chiffon Wide Leg Trousers, 5. Palm Print Palazzo Pants, 6. Grecian Getaway Palazzo Pants, 7. Palazzo Print-cess Lounge Pants

And we can’t leave you hanging without something for the top half of your look, so we’ve included our favorite tops to pair with the palazzo pants above:

Cop more tops and the perfect palazzo pants at GoJane.com!

 

So, enlighten us, how do you beat the heat? We could use a few tips. Sound off in the comments below!

What’s in your bag?

A woman’s bag is the Holy Grail, and getting a new bag, especially one you’ve been coveting, is basically all of the best parts of a birthday rolled into one. One could argue that it’s only something to hold all of your stuff, right? Isn’t that what we always hear from our boyfriends? Really, another bag? No! It’s not just another bag. Pfft.

Bags are tools, and we have to have one for each specific occasion and mood. (Same goes for shoes. Yes, we’re enablers.) Hey, if your husband or man-friend doesn’t swing with this argument, you can tell him to go fly a kite, and also get rid of his tool collection which is probably gathering dust in the garage. Take that!

We’ve rounded up a couple of examples because we’re nosy. Go ahead and snoop around our displays below.

 

Exhibit A – The Backpack:

So you’re a student and running around on campus all day? A backpack is in order. Stow your laptop, books, and paper ephemera to make your day easier. Don’t forget snacks. Those mid-class hunger pangs are no joke. A hungry stomach only induces “hanger” (hungry anger) which is never helpful when taking notes.

Tribal Travel Print Backpack, iPhone, Postalco Notebook, Textbooks, MacBook Air, Headphones

Exhibit B – Beach Day Tote:

You’ve put in your dues, and a day spent by the water (pool, ocean, lake) complete with your favorite tunes and a giant bottle of organic green juice is what you deserve. (Okay, we wouldn’t say no to a mojito either.) Throw in a towel, sunscreen (just say no to sunspots, wrinkles, or cancer), your fave magazines, headphones, and sunnies for a day of relaxation.

beachtote

 

Floppy Wide Brim Woven Paper Hat, NYX Tango With Bronzing Powder, Oversized Beach Totebag, Round We Go Sunglasses, Button ‘N Buckle Thong Sandals

Exhibit C – Evening Clutch:

Heading out to have some cocktails with the ladies (or your special dude)? There’s nothing worse than digging around in a satchel while the bartender gives you the evil eye. Plus, who needs a big bag weighing down a svelte look? Keep it minimal with crucial necessities. In this case, moola, your phone, lipstick (for touch-ups), and gum (bad breath is a social faux pas nobody is on board with).

How To: Summer Blacks

When we think of summer, we think of cool, light colors. It’s definitely a dilemma for the gals that prefer wearing black (guilty as charged). If you favor fall and winter, do not despair. Screw the old school fashion “rules”; trust us when we say that you won’t look like Darth Vader. We’ve included some top tips for wearing all black ensembles while still beating the heat. Get inspired with the looks in the gallery below.

All image credits in photo captions.

Top Tips

  • Yah, it’s a no brainer, but keep the fabrics light. This is not the time for wool unless it’s suddenly chilly.
  • Accessorize with bags and jewelry in natural textures such as raffia, wood, and leather.
  • Accessorize with bold jewelry that feels seasonally appropriate.
  • For graphic contrast, add some white. Black and white is always a classic. Umm, have you seen photos of Coco Chanel?
  • Vary the fabrics and textures. We don’t need an all black cotton uniform.
  • Your outfit can change with the addition of a lip color. Feeling classic? Go for a bold red lip. Need a lighter daytime feel? Try a natural lip stain instead.

We’ve got our GoJane faves below. How do you wear black in the summer?

Microtrend: Cami Dresses

We looooove spaghetti… Straps, that is. Fooled you, huh? As much as we’d love to drop everything and go eat (#FOMO on grub), we need to get to the meat (ha) of the post which is all about our love for 90s inspired cami/spaghetti strap dresses.

When it’s hot out, what more does a girl need other than some thin straps to hold some thin cloth against a smokin’ bod? It’s all about rocking a super polished but casual look, and a cami dress is an easy option. Plus, a little 90s never hurt anyone. Sparkles? Check. Spaghetti straps over a shirt? Check. Cami dresses with lace-up boots and sneakers? Check. And since we’re speaking of the 90s, let’s take a trip down memory lane with this super rad gallery. We’ve included the classics and some n00bs for a dose of old and new. (We’re aware that Kate Moss dominates the gallery. What can we say? Girl knows how to dress.)

How To: Ugly Shoe Trend

It’s all over the runways and showing up on the blogosphere. That’s right… Pool slides, double buckle slippers, flatforms, mules, and granola girl styled sandals are all making a splash just in time for spring and summer. But how does one wear this trend (other than just slip your feet in, of course)? All of these styles can look great if you pair them with the right looks. And who doesn’t love to sport a bit of comfy footwear instead of a painful stiletto? Beauty doesn’t always have to be pain.

Need more proof? Vogue Paris styled an entire editorial of models parading around in high-priced double buckle slippers with – wait for it – socks. Famous ladies sporting chunky sandals: Chloë Sevigny, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, and the Olsen twins. Céline, Miu Miu, Alexander Wang, Giambattista Valli… They’re all originators of this resurgence. Can we get a resounding “amen” for Phoebe Philo? Along with the #Normcore renaissance, it’s a time of reverting to simplicity.

But why is ugly in? Comfort is a big factor, right? And comfort is cool right now. Flat shoes are in and this look is original and practical. However, let’s not get too crazy here. It can be ugly, but it still has to be chic. And it’s also about irony and nostalgia. Who wore Adidas pool slides during summer camp? Cue raised hands. Check out the collage for some ideas on how to style this trend.

StreetFashionCollage

Key points for pulling off this look:

  • Rock a great pedicure.
  • Don’t do tie-dye or anything that screams “hippie” (we’ll give you a pass, Kate Moss). We want to modernize, not go on a throwback rampage.
  • Half socks in mesh or patterns can update slides.
  • Play with contrast. Chunky shoes suggest that you need to be sleek, tailored, and minimal for balance.
  • Try to opt for an updated color palette.
  • Dress up the look with gleaming accessories and a pop of color on your lips if you’re a lipstick kind of gal. (We’re thinking an orange lippy, yes?)

If you’re ready to be a little subversive with your fashion, take a pick from our selection of sandals for the perfect look.

Texas Bound: 2014 SXSW Recap

It’s as if spring heralds the return of a new year with the advent of what is now being dubbed “festival season.” Epic among industry names, SXSW (South By Southwest) is an amalgam of films, music performances, and conferences that takes place annually in Austin, Texas. But let’s get down to the nitty gritty about the happenings that took place this year.

We will never stop loving Lady Gaga for her reinvention and theatrics, and as the keynote presenter and headlining act, she did not disappoint. In a one-hour show, sponsored by Doritos, an oversized roasting spit and a mechanical pig functioned as eccentric props, and a vomit artist threw up on Gaga’s chest (phew!). Stuffed with creative vision and just the right touch of weird, Lady Gaga wasn’t all about theatrics and threw out earnest vocals that sucked in the crowd.

And the list of heavy-hitters didn’t stop there. 50 Cent (genuinely showing off an “indie” reinvention), Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Childish Gambino, and Soundgarden (for all you 90s lovers) all made appearances. One of our fave chicks, Charli XCX, performed along with LA buzz bands and K-pop stars. Kelis – who apparently also had a themed food truck to coincide with her new release – served up jerk ribs, duck confit sliders, BBQ, and coleslaw.

A$AP Rocky premiered his film “SVDDXNLY,” and a Jimi Hendrix biopic was shown with Andre 3000 playing the doomed rocker.  Snoop Dogg, Phantogram, and The 1975 had live tapings (we’re going to start scouring YouTube to relive those moments). And who wouldn’t want to see the fabulous Janelle Monae belt out tunes? Let’s just say SXSW knows how to serve up a feast for the senses, even for the nerds – all hail Neil deGrasse Tyson!

But we can’t end this post without addressing the tragedy that occurred. It’s a reminder that at the end of the day nothing is as important as the fragility of life and our loved ones. In spite of all the grief, let’s remember all of the great things that happened during SXSW and appreciate the goodness that came out of it.

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Cool Tanks, Sexy Body Cons, and Sneaky Models

Remember when we caught our models “reading” before? Well, they were up to the same ol’ antics at our most recent photo sesh. Between gettin’ their learning on and showing off in our latest finds, the girls were all sorts of busy. Check out the BTS pics, and let us know what looks you’re loving. By the way, everything should be in New Styles soon.

Microtrend: Nautical

Confession: we were going to introduce this post with lyrics from “I’m On a Boat,” but we were worried that some of you wouldn’t know the song. Anyways, today we’re crushing on all things sea-inspired. Why? Because summer’s just around the corner, and we also got some totally rad stuff in. Check it out, deal?

 

1. cut-out seahorse charm necklace, 2. anchor helm charm bracelet, 3. dangling starfish earrings, 4. anchor star two-finger ring, and 5. boating flats

What’s your fave piece? 

Things We Like: Glasses

You know what we’re really digging lately? Glasses. We don’t know if it’s because we’ve suddenly become hipsters, but right now we’re loving how a pair of glasses adds the perfect quirky touch to any look. Check out our gallery of stylish ladies and lads rocking glasses and let us know what you think, deal?

Microtrend: Geometric

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Kitty Ears, Funny Faces, and Lots of Color

Inspiration Gallery: Bold Lips

Maybe it’s because we’re a sucker for color, but we’re seriously obsessing over lip shades in bold, vibrant hues. With finishes ranging from satin to matte, we’re all about experimenting with unexpected color to brighten up even the most basic of ensembles. By the way, if you wanna test out a new hue, head on over to GoJane- tons of sweet shades, as well as all the tools you’ll need for the perfect pout.

Five Things Our Lead Stylist Loves

Confession: we spend a lot of time chatting with our super cool lead stylist about her fave things. Why? Because she has wicked taste, and she always knows what’s going to be hot way before it hits. Today, we’re showing you five things she’s loving right this minute because, well, you wanna know, right? Right.

5 Things Our Stylist Loves

1. omg mustache tights, 2. studded skater dress, 3. peony vine headband, 4. distressed color wash shorts, and 5. metallic knit top

What’s your fave piece?

Microtrend: Deep Cut Tanks

Remember when we showed you some of our fave street style stars lounging about in deep cut tanks? We still haven’t been able to get enough of the trend, so we had our lead stylist pull four deep cut tanks to tide us over (for now). Take a look at her picks and let us know how you plan to wear deep cut tanks this spring.

1. graphic leopard tank, 2. galaxy triangle tank, 3. graphic american flag tank, and 4. yin yang deep cut tank

What’s your fave piece? And how do you plan to do deep cut tanks this year?

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Peplums, Neon, and Cropped Tops

We’ve already told you approximately a million times how excited we are for the prospect of warmer weather, and now we have tons of new stuff to wear to celebrate the rising temps!

Take a look and let us know what pieces you’re loving, deal?

Inspiration Gallery: Metallics

Happy Birthday, Kat Von D

True story: one of the GoJane writers’ mom had Kat Von D as a student in the eighth grade. And while Kat didn’t have any tats at the tender age of thirteen, she did have plenty of talent. We guess it shouldn’t shock us that the now famous tattoo artist showed plenty of promise at an age when most of us were more concerned with pizza than careers. Anyways, happy birthday birthday, Kat Von D!

Microtrend: Party Perfect Platforms

It’s not a secret that we’ve been seriously crushing on single sole heels, but don’t think that we’ve forgotten about our BFF, the platform heel. Check out our stylist’s top five picks for platform heels, and make sure to let us know which pair of sky-high platforms you’re loving.

1. buckled reptile finish platforms, 2. embellished platform pumps, 3. colorblock strappy platform heels, 4. star accent heel-less platforms, and 5. cut-out platforms

Check out some of our other fave shoes here.

Inspiration Gallery: Deep Cut Tanks

Need a cool girl staple to take you straight into late summer? You could try something classic, like distressed denim shorts and sandals, but we prefer to add a little edge with a piece that’s equal parts basic and unexpected. What is it? The deep cut tank. With armholes that brush the top of your jeans, deep cut tanks are the perfect antidote to a winter filled with coats, sweaters, and cardigans. Another perk? They’re plenty versatile- keep ’em sporty with a brightly hued bandeau or add some sex appeal with a lace bralette.

How to: Do an Understated Smokey Eye

You know we love us wild, boldly hued makeup, but sometimes we crave something a bit more practical. Recently, one of our MUAs showed us how to do an understated smokey eye on Kouwai, and we loved the look so much, a few of us ended up doing it that night for an evening out with the girls. Anyways, check out this super easy tutorial, and make sure to let us know what you think.




What do you think? Are you a fan?

Inspiration Gallery: Snapbacks

We’ve been feeling snapbacks for awhile (as seen here), but today we’re going to fully embrace the look with a totally rad inspiration gallery.  We especially love how snapbacks can easily go from girly to grunge, as well as how they instantly elevate your look.


If you’re digging the look, check out all of our totally awesome choices.

Happy Birthday, Ke$ha

With plenty of tracks guaranteed to get the party pumpin’, along with an aesthetic based almost entirely on the idea that the more glitter, the better, Ke$ha is the kind of girl we’d totally want to party with. Plus, we think she’d be rad to spend the day with scavenging our local thrift shops for leather jackets and bodysuits reminiscent of Jane Fonda circa 1983. Today is the songstress’s 26th birthday and as such, we’re celebrating with tons of photos.


Are you a Ke$ha fan?

PS: Did anyone see the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race? One of the contestants dressed up as Ke$ha- that’s some serious cultural legitimacy, ya’ll.

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Big Ballerina Buns, High-Waisted Denim, and Plenty of Skin

You already know we’ve been on a serious 90s kick, and we decided to keep the good times rolling with cropped tops, high-waisted denim, and lots of gold bling. Take a look at our most in-studio photo sesh, and let us know what you think, deal?

PS: As always, everything should be in the New Styles section on the GoJane site soon!

Inspiration Gallery: 90s Style

Have you noticed all the cool, early 90s-inspired stuff on the GoJane site? We’re doing it big in cropped tops, high-waisted acid wash jeans, and of course, lots of plaid. When it comes to figuring out what we’re lusting after, we’ve been taking our cues from pop culture- think Never Been Kissed (starring the lovable Drew Barrymore), old issues of Tiger Beat, and re-runs of TRL. Anyways, check out our ode to all things 90s, including images from the period, as well as a few modern interpretations, and make sure to turn up the Savage Garden while you do it.


Are you digging the return of 90s style?

Behind the Scenes + Sneak Peek: Bodysuits, Graphic Tees, and Plenty of Giggles

Two of our goofiest models spent our most recent shoot in slouchy, deep cut tanks, Victorian-inspired bodysuits, and boldly printed leggings. Between the posing and preening, there was also plenty of purchasing; cries of “I want this!” and squeals of, “Oooh, I’m getting this, too!” punctuated the sounds of remixed Top 40 blasting in the studio. Anyways, check out the latest and greatest, and make sure to let us know what you think.

What was your favorite piece?

Look We Love: Model Off-Duty

It’s not exactly a secret that we have an obsession with achieving model beauty, but lately we’ve been digging the off-duty style of some of our fave models, including Karlie, Cara, and Freja. After poring over tons of images, we’ve discovered that the ideal off-duty uniform consists of a menswear-inspired jacket, skinny jeans, and booties perfect for walking all day (and night). Of course, some of our fave models totally break the uniform rule, as you can tell by this totally rad gallery. Anyways, check it out and let us know how you get off-duty model style.


Are you a fan of this look?

Inspiration Gallery: Dive Right In

After months of grey and gloomy weather, you’ve probably already started fantasizing about feeling the sun on your face and the sand between your toes. So we decided it was time for a little sunny inspiration, just to hold you over until the weather warms up. And just to make your cool February a little more bright, GoJane has loads of new swimwear so you can get to planning your summer outfits already.

Below are five carefully picked pairs of heels that are perfect for a romantic date, but can definitely be worn for all sorts of other occasions, including work, play, and everything in between.

Inspiration Gallery: Black and White

After seasons of saturated color, we’re craving simplicity in the form of black and white. But don’t think that a simple color palette means boring- as this gallery shows you, black and white can be intriguing, fashionable, and above all, fun.


Are you a fan of black and white? How do you plan to wear this hot hue combination?

DIY Shoe Clips: We Heart Bow-tiful Shoes

We all love a classic pair of pumps, but sometimes, we just want to spice them up a little. That’s why we’ve decided shoe clips are the most genius idea since sliced bread. Or at least since ombre hair. They are super adorable, you can make them in any shape or color, and they won’t damage your shoes. Just to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, we decided to do glitter heart clips and heart printed bow clips. So grab some glitter and ribbons, and get ready for a free shoe upgrade.

How to: Newsprint Nails

We all know newspapers have become a bit obsolete (thanks to the internet), but we’ve decided to re-purpose them for a fun mani.
