GET THE LOOK: EXPOSED ZIPPERS

When it comes to dresses, coats or pants, this celebrity trend is getting more exposure than it probably expected.  Designer Alexander Wang weighs in on the movement by saying, “I love zippers,” adding that they’re able to give “a more industrial touch to something that’s more feminine.” Exposed zippers have been making a mark in Hollywood in formal and casual wear, and without question Swell has stayed on track with the demand by offering many ways to rock the look.

No logos, no frills, no silly phrases; just pure classic steeze and comfort. It’s the hoodie your dad wore for college b-ball; it’s the hoodie that doesn’t order its drinks with garnishes. The Swell basic zip up hoodie is all about clean lines and clean slates. With no logos and no hassles, this old school hoodie is the only wingman you’ll need. It’s throwback steeze with a $29.50 throwback price tag.

GOSSIP-WORTHY STYLE

Nobody knows fashion better than Gossip Girl. The wardrobe is hotter than the drama, and the show is constantly pushing the limits and taking risks. Giving the Sex in the City crew a run for their money when it comes to street-friendly style, the show is setting trends that could make any girl look like a star. This light, airy and figure-flattering look is as simple as throwing on sweats, but achieves a 5th Avenue allure. Best of all, the style works on almost every frame and isn’t over seasoned with out-there accoutrements. In just 6 mixable separates, Gossip Girl style can transform into your everyday chic. The breezy tunic paired with leggings and saucy knee high boots is a show stopper on its own.  Add on this season’s favorite slouchy cardigan and a sugary faux patent alligator bag and you will, undoubtedly, be the best dressed. Psst…take notes because this style’s about to stir up some gossip!
