Dirty Dancing Style Guide

BY Caelan in Style

Dirty Dancing didn’t only make household names out of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze (R.I.P.) but it was also an iconic teen love story that made water dancing, Keds and summer camp seem cool. This movie was iconic not only in the mom-jeans hall of fame, but it also became essential when talking about 80’s fashion, so today I’m bringing baby out of the wardrobe corner and into 2014. So without further ado, here's how to incorporate 80’s fashion into your wardrobe without looking like the lady who sells Christmas sweaters on QVC or Sally Jesse Raphael. Read More
In case you missed it, a fashion shoot by Indian photographer Raj Shetye made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The photo series depicted a model groped in various positions by men on a bus, and was particularly unsettling because of its eerie resemblance to the tragic 2012 gang rape and murder of a 23-year old woman on a bus in Delhi.   The shoot garnered some well-deserved backlash, including some from Bollywood music director Vishal Dadlani, who tweeted about it.   But since then, there’s been some good news in the world of Indian fashion photography.

      I don't remember the exact moment I discovered Tavi Gevinson's blog Style Rookie, only that I interpreted her shrines of teenage girlhood via Goody barrettes, Barbie clothes, Freaks and Geeks posters and Comme des Garcons ads as the work of a mastermind. A mastermind in Miu Miu pumps and granny shawls. I was in awe and continued to read her blog with a sort of feverish glee for years.    I wish I turned my Girl Scout patches into something this rad.

Black Milk Clothing is taking realistic body image to a whole new level this summer with their “Dem Guts” bathing suit—a suit with a print of the inner anatomy of the human body—guts and all!  It’s nice to see a clothing company which actually recognizes the fact that the women who will be wearing its products are human in every way (including some of the kind of weird/gross ways).

Just a short time after we got wind that David Lynch had designed Kenzo’s eerie most recent A/W show, we find out he’s at it again. Love of my life and artist extraordinaire David Lynch is collaborating with the fashion world again, this time, in pursuit of making the ultimate women’s work out wear. Lynch and the luxury US brand Live the Process have worked together in order to debut Lynch’s six-piece collection that features corset bras, scoop bras with geometric leggings, natty pairs of shorts and T-shirts that read “Change Begins Within.

I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was 10 years old. It's been just about every color imaginable- even green, and green is a tough hair color to rock. I also usually dye my hair myself since salons are so insanely expensive. I've collected more than a few tricks for achieving the perfect dye job over the years, so here are my top seven for all of you who are thinking about taking the color plunge.  1. Use a buddy! Dyeing hair, especially your own, is hard. Have a friend with you as backup to make sure you’ve applied the pigment evenly, especially the back and underside. Read More
Are you as sick of the endless lingerie search, foraging for a larger cup size that is not boring and/or overpriced? I wear a bra size 34F and let me tell you, finding a bra that is comfortable, supportive, and cute all for an affordable price is a true pain. The boutique stores with small lacy bras for smaller sizes just don't offer the kind of support larger breasts need and the large chains like Victoria Secret and Macy's are always throwing diamonds and bows all over everything. Also, I certainly can't afford the intricate bras from the stores specializing in larger breast sizes. Read More
Looks like in the game of capitalism vs. women’s rights, capitalism wins once again. American Apparel, who did a great deed by firing former CEO and founder Dov Charney after further allegations against Charney arose, backpeddled BIG TIME.  According to ABCNews.com, the “made in America” minimalist clothing company just rehired Charney as a “strategic consultant until the end of the investigation.”  Charney’s fate as an AA employee, officer, or even CEO lies in the findings of the investigation.

Have you ever mixed up your boring bag with someone else’s identical boring bag? If you have, you know what a pain in the ass that is. Or maybe in school, you'll see someone with a familiar backpack and call out to them or wave, only to realize it wasn’t who you thought it was, rather someone with the same bag? How embarrassing! Well, something you may have never realized is that there’s a simple, stylish solution - buttons! I love buttons for many reasons. Read More
J. Crew is right up there with Vineyard Vines at the list of the preppiest clothing stores where the skinniest, most photo-ready-looking people shop. However, given the quality and price tag of the J. Crew brand, I never would have thought they’d introduce clothing that mothers and elementary school age children can share. However, that seems to be just what they’ve done by creating a size 000, which is basically a triple extra small. Read More
