My Chic Trends: The Smoking Slipper

Mens Slippers

This is a Über popular trend for Fall 2013 – part of the menswear influence and a welcome change from the loafer or wingtip.  We have been seeing them in stores from Neiman’s to Small boutiques and everywhere in between.  I stumbled upon some Stubbs & Wootton, the “originator” purveyor of classically handmade versions of slipper style flats worn by the Town & Country set for decades.


These smoking slippers started their lives as just what they seem – men’s flats to be worn with a smoking jacket as you enjoy your pipe or cigar in the library.  They trended into men’s formal evening shoes (um, isn’t it just like men to trend  into formal wear?) and onto men’s shoes with jeans for the very fashionable.  Then Stubbs & Wootton replaced the traditional crest embroidered on the toe with some tongue-in-cheek fun….. et voila.


Below are some amazing styles and designers who are currently killing the game in the slipper game.

Rihanna Disses Muslims in Abu Dhabi?


Rihanna’s always on the edge of fashion trends and media gossip of being a Bad Girl. But do you think she has gone too far with this impromptu photo shoot while in Abu Dhabi a week ago and she posted several pics on Insta and this particular pic has people talking because of the title “B*tch Stole my look”?



She and her crew were asked to leave from the mosque where she did not have permission to film or shoot that day in Abu Dhabi for disrespecting the religion, and now she receiving hate online for insulting Muslim women. On the other side, people think she’s supporting their style of the hi jab.

Androgyny Fashion Looks

Androgyny Fashion

The fashion industry has always been about bending and breaking boundaries with different looks.

Recently in womenswear , androgyny has become very popular in the trendsetting world. It’s a look that can be achieve by mixing and matching masculine pieces with their own femininity. Older Celebrities like Joan Jet and Grace Jones put Androgyny wear on the map and now younger starlets are taking over like Alexa Chung and Janelle Monae. They’ve been spotted sporting the androgynous look on the streets and at concerts while performing.

The Chic Trend Report: Pajama Dressing


We saw a lot of Spring Trends coming out of September’s New York Fashion Week, lots of textures and crazy patterns that seem to fit once they were put together in such a way that it was just beautiful. But what we didn’t expect was wearable trendy pajamas. Not the PJ’s you wear to bed, we want you to know there is art to pajama dressing.


I know what you’re thinking — pajamas worn as a fashion statement?! It does sound a tad looney, but after Alexander Wang rocked the runway with models sporting matching shirt and shorts PJ sets, we are totally on board with this new trend.


Recently we saw the ever lovely, Kate Bosworth showing a perfect example of how to do pajama dressing without going overboard. A round collared pajama shirt with white piping pairs well with skinny jeans and a heels. The key is to look stylish and not frumpy like you wore your pajamas to bed then out and about. If you want to wear top and bottoms together, get the bottoms tailored to fit as a skinny pant and pair with heels and a clutch. Guys, you too can rock some silk bottoms with a blazer and moccasins. Again, play around with the look and dress it up with some Chicrenegade accessories.
