Style Challenge: How to wear shorts in the winter

It’s been a long time since our last Style Challenge, so we thought we’d start off this year with what we think is a fairly easy one! Short-shorts have been popping up all over the place this winter, and we’ve had a few emails now from people wondering how to wear this traditionally summery item in the colder months of the year. We thought we’d let our readers answer that one for us, and we’ve picked out these cute little polka dot shorts from Miss Selfridge for you to play with. Your challenge is to use Polyvore to build a winter-appropriate outfit around these, and post a link to your set in our comments section, so take a look under…

[Guest Post] Style Challenge – formal evening wear for curvy figures

Deepti writes: I make $45000 a year and I want to be a Fashionista without going broke. I’m bigger than average in size (ahem, lets not discuss exactly how much bigger) but I am sick of Empire waists and Wrap dresses. I know you get what to pay for but do I really need to pay $45 for a scarf in Texas? I know my shoes are fugly but I can’t walk in anything with over a 1-inch heel without falling on my butt. I love this top and the price at Ross but its the wrong size, why the heck can’t I find this in another size here? These are the things that cross my mind every time I…

What to Wear With Jeggings, Part 3

JC’s outfit What would you wear with acid-wash jeggings – assuming you absolutely had to wear them, that is? That’s the question we asked our readers last week, and here’s the final part of their suggested outfits. Thanks again to everyone who took part – look out for another Style Challenge soon!

Style Challenge: What to wear with jeggings

Jeggings. They almost never go down well here at The Fashion Police, and yet, every time we set foot outside the HQ we see lots of people wearing them: often badly, it has to be said. In other words: they’re not going anywhere yet, so we thought it was time to investigate how best to wear them. Your Style Challenge this week, then, readers, is to use Polyvore to build an outfit around the jeggings shown above.  Just to make it even more difficult fun, we’ve selected a pair of acid wash jeggings, too. You can thank us later. You’ll find the rules of the game under the jump. If you simply want to BUY the jeggings, meanwhile, they’re £18…

Style Challenge: What to Wear with animal print?

Damn, we’re cruel, aren’t we? For the last couple of style challenges, we’ve left it more or less up to you what to choose for your outfits, but this week we thought we’d get back to styling a specific item. We picked this Topshop body because although animal print is very much “in fashion” at the moment, we know that an awful lot of you… well, hate it. It’s not the easiest thing to style either, but today we ask you to cast all of your fears aside and imagine that you HAVE to wear this item. There is no choice. What you wear it with, however, is totally up to you, so we’re looking forward to seeing what you…

Style Challenge: What to wear to a Halloween party

With Halloween coming up fast, we want to know what you’ll be wearing if you’re going out to celebrate – or what you would wear if you were going out somewhere. This Style Challenge, then, will call for some creativity, as we ask you to use Polyvore to create a Halloween costume – you can be as outrageous or as subtle as you like! Oh, and you don’t have to use the bag pictured above (it’s from Topshop, in case you’re wondering) – it’s there purely for the purpose of illustration, but you can, of course, feel free to use it if you like! Take a look at the rules before getting started:   The Rules: 1. Log-in to Polyvore…

Style Challenge: What to Wear to a Winter Wedding?

This week’s Style Challenge will call for a little more creativity than usual, as rather than giving you a particular item to style, we’re going to ask you to help us answer one of the questions we get asked most often by our readers: What to wear to a winter wedding? As usual with our Style Challenges, you can use Polyvore to put together your outfits: the only difference is that rather than us telling YOU what to wear, you can tell us, using any items you like. For the purposes of the game, we’ll assume that the wedding you’re attending is a traditional church wedding, being held during the winter. What would you wear? Post your Polyvore links in…

Style Challenge: What to Wear With Thigh High Boots?

As we’re sure most of you know, thigh high boots are currently enjoying a turn in the fashion spotlight: they’re being touted as THE boots for this winter, but let’s face it, they’re not exactly the easiest boots to wear, and all too often, they can end up making you look like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. For this week’s Style Challenge, then, we want you to use Polyvore to create an outfit to wear with the thigh-high boots above, which are by Stella McCartney. Before you do, though, please take a moment to read the rules of the game, which you’ll find below…
