One of Swell’s favorite yearly events is Hurley’s Walk the Walk. A real life combination of “Project Runway” and “America’s Next Top Model”, Walk The Walk pits rival high schools in catwalk showdowns featuring retooled and restyled Hurley lines.

But the event’s real challenge is the original design competition where team’s must create stellar his and her’s ensembles. Extremely competitive, all Walk The Walk events display the same glamorous, rock-n-roll atmosphere you’d expect at Bryant Park during Fashion Week. (more…)

Judging by Selena Gomez and Nicky Hilton, it looks like the hot skinny jeans trend has evolved into the even hotter ankle zip skinny jeans trend—an even more versatile addition to your wardrobe.  Sometimes seen with buttons or clean slits instead of zippers, this look will allow you to try some new styles for spring. For those who aren’t fans of skinny jean, I’m sorry but it looks like they’re going to be around for at least another season. But don’t fear, as the ankle zip version gives you an opportunity to sport the trend without committing to the traditional skinny jeans.  I know the words “skinny jeans” alone can strike fear into many, but contrary to popular belief it’s a look that can be worn by anyone. It’s really all about proportions, so try wearing a longer, looser top to balance the look.

Not to start off this little ditty with excessive name-dropping, but…

Lauren Conrad, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie: No, it’s not a new season of Celebrity Rehab, it’s celebs who have been spotted rocking the new burnout tee trend. The distinctive personality and texture of the burnout tee looks and feels like a vintage store find, capturing the emotion you would expect from years of love. The unmatched finely-aged feel is topped off with the allure of subtle hints of skin peeking through the sheer windows. To fine tune its Soho-meets-thrift store appeal, this season we see deep V-necks, quirky pockets, and oversized cuts that melt onto the body like butter on burnt toast—fanning the flames of its understated sex-appeal. So burn baby, burn.
