betches love this nyfw


We’re three-quarters of the way done with fashion week season. So far, we’ve spotted street style at New York Fashion Week, threw a crazy bash in London for LFW, and, as we speak, have our eyes glued to for all the new collections in Milan. If you’re anything like us, you’re already plotting your moves for next fall. Of course, we can’t wait for spring and summer but September through November are our favorite months to put outfits together. Hello, boots, scarves, and chunky knit sweaters! You know exactly what we mean.

After scanning the runways of some of our favorite designers for NYFW fall trends, we started to notice a handful of trends that, um, we weren’t so sure we’d be embracing…even six months from now. We asked our friends at Betches Love This – the snarky internet-BFFs that tell it like it is on everything from bros to celeb style – for their take on sleeveless coats, menswear-insipred footwear, bright red, and more. Because, if anyone will tell us the truth, they will!

Sleeveless Coats

Sleeveless coats – also known as a vest.

Menswear Shoes

“Don’t eh’stomp your last season high heeled Loubs at me honay.” But really, I don’t know any straight man who would ever wear a bow on his shoe, so this isn’t menswear. This is a pointy leather shoe with a chunky kitten heel. And if you ever wore these out, no man would ever hit on you no matter how hot you were, because he’d think – nay- know you were a lesbian.

Omg. RED. I would have never thought to wear red if someone, especially the man who designs dresses like Zoe Saldana’s for the Golden Globes, had come up with the idea! His inspo must’ve definitely been Game of the Thrones Red Wedding. Anyway, Redddddd!! Taylor Swift must be pleased with herself.


Taylor Swift Dishes Dating Advice Just In Time for Valentine’s Day


Taylor Swift March cover

As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, you can’t help but feel the love in the air. To celebrate the official month de amour, Glamour Mag covered their March issue (on stands February 11th) with professional heartbreaker slash hit maker, Taylor Swift.

The blonde beauty, looking gorgeous as ever in a red lace Rachel Comey dress dished dating advice for both single and taken gals alike in her Q&A. Swift is all about the “freeze-out” when trying to get the upper hand back in a relationship. A move we bet she uses on all the guys she knew were trouble when they walked in. Yes, we’re talking to you John Mayer (and probably Joe Jonas, too).

In a relationship? Here are Taylor’s thoughts on why you should never yell:

“Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you’re crazy.”

Single? Taylor on doing the “freeze-out” when dating:

“I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.”

3 MAJOR Trends We Spotted at the 2014 Golden Globes


The 2014 Golden Globes, the first big awards show of the year, was last night. A kick off to two months of critiquing celeb runway style – dresses, jewelry, hair and makeup.

From Lupita Nyong’o’s stunning Ralph Lauren to Joanna Newsom’s Little Miss Muffet-inspired disaster, we poured over every red carpet look – the good, the bad, AND the ugly – to get some new fashion inspo for our own wardrobes. What we found are three seriously stylish trends we cannot wait to try!

Who wore your favorite look of the night?

1. Go Big Red

(From L- R) Lupita Nyong’o’s (Ralph Lauren), Amy Adams (Valentino), Emma Watson (Dior), and funny-woman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Narciso Rodriquez), had us seeing red at the 2014 Golden Globes. The bright-and-sexy hue made us want to run out and get our very own crimson frock. Forget the LBD. We want an LRD, NOW!
