The Dangling Belt


Count this as #2 in our ongoing Fashion Week recap. On the docket this time: the dangling belt.

This snap is from the Robert Geller show, but there were similarly loose straps on display at 3.1 Phillip Lim and Michael Bastian, turning it into a bonafide trending item. (That was three, right?)

The trick is using a thin leather belt (kind of like these), maybe tucking it in past the first pant loop, and then letting it dangle. That might involve sizing up a bit to give you enough extra belt to play with, but your reward is a freewheeling grace note that’s unusually easy to pull off. It’s the kind of thing that fashion week stylists do best. Don’t be surprised if you see it on the street before too long.

The Clubmaster of the Future


After last year’s clubmaster renaissance, we’re about ready for a next step. Our favorite contender so far is Philip Lim 3.1’s “Donahue” frames. They come in un-shaded and tortoise shell versions too, but we prefer these solid black versions. It’s the kind of thing you expect to see on the bad guy in an 80s movie, possibly alongside a knee-length jacket and a Miami-level tan. (Sold separately.)

Kemptress: Jennifer Morrison

  • Jared Paul Stern


We should make it clear from the start that while we never watch television, we do have something of a Netflix addiction to *House M.D.*.

And though we were drawn to it by the prospect of Bertie Wooster playing a misanthropic American medico, Jennifer Morrison (aka Dr. Cameron) is certainly easy on the eyes. If only the wardrobe department wouldn't insist on stuffing her into ill-fitting Club Monaco career separates.
