Photo Print Socks

Photo print socks!

In case y'all missed the memo, digitally-printed clothes are in. Christopher Kane started it all with his ultra-realistic galaxy print back in 2011 and since then, it's been a non-stop free-for-all covering everything we own in whatever crazy photos of nature/food/animals we can find. So far, we've seen everything from dresses decked out in clouds to pants covered in flowers to sweaters smothered in French fries, but this spring we've decided to take on one area of our ensemble that is often overlooked--the socks. Now, we know what you're thinking, "Who cares about socks?" Well, first off, we do--especially right now! This spring is ALL about wearing ankle socks with shoes (we're talking pointy heels, platform wedges, stacked booties, EVERYTHING) to spice up our wardrobe. Don't believe us? Everyone from the editors at Elle to Rihanna to the fashion icons at Nasty Gal have been behind this trend, so we're absolutely-mega-sure this is something that's going to stick.

We've already told you about how excited we are that one of our favorite models, the one and only, the hilarious Chrissy Teigen is covering this year's Hangout Fest on hangout.mtv.com. But we don't really feel like we did the actual festival, which is a fantastic mix of AMAZING bands and a totally beautiful beach (i.e. heaven, pretty much), the justice that it deserves. Hangout is a seriously good time, and no matter which aspect of awesomeness you're the most excited for, there's most definitely something for you. Like Coachella, there is a HUGE variety of music to choose from, and there's a pretty solid chance that no matter what your preferred genre, there will be something right up your ally at Hangout. We picked three of our most anticipated, but also different, Hangout Fest acts and broke down some looks that we think would make you look right at home in the crowd.

SOLANGE

Obviously, we take serious style inspiration from Solange on a regular basis, so when we were thinking about who could kick off our Hangout Music Fest style-a-palooza she came to mind immediately. We LOVE her bold style, and have to credit her for single handedly doing away with any fear we might have of wearing mixed prints. In her honor, we think either a shorts suit or, better yet, a jumpsuit in a bold, colorful print is just the ticket for looking fly and still being able to dance to her set at Hangout. We love the Nasty Gal Flower Punch Jumpsuit ($88.00) paired with a colorful, low heeled sandal like ASOS' Hedley Heeled Sandals ($76.36), a classic panama hat like the BDG Aloha Straw Panama Hat ($29.00), an easy cross-body bag like the Forever 21 Canvas Saddle Bag ($24.80) and finally a little pop of something extra, like the silver Tiger's Head Belt from Zara ($25.90).

Is this real life? Is The Office really over? We've already had to carry on in a world without 30 Rock, and now NB "we [peacock] comedy" C is bidding adieu to our OTHER Thursday night mainstay? *weeps single tear into remnants of sad desk salad* Welp, whether we want it to or not, The Office ends tonight with a special two-hour season finale starting at 8 p.m. EST tonight. After 9 years of mockumentary bliss, we say farewell to the beloved staff of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, Scranton Branch in just a few hours. BUT before they go, we suggest you stock up on some priceless The Office-themed Stan Swag, some cool fan merch to pepper throughout your life in a post-Jim Halpert universe because you're gonna want to fill that void after tonight's series finale. (That's what she said.)

crazy cat bikini

Would you wear this crazy cat bikini?

Fellow East Coast dwellers might have a hard time believing this, but summer is, in fact, on its way. It's a slow crawl for those of us along the Atlantic, but *shrugs* we'll wait it out. In the meantime, though, we're combing the interwebz for SWIMWEAR! Hey, it's slightly more "productive" than binge-watching throwback episodes of Arrested Development, right? Amidst our hunt, hoarding all our links and wants in our Svpply profiles, we happened upon this little string number. Sold separately, these pieces are aptly titled "Crazy Cat Triangle Top" and "Crazy Cat String Bottom," and are definitely one way to turn heads at the beach/lake/pool this summer.

Gabi Gregg swimsuitsforall

Welp, if that picture above wasn't enough to stop you dead in your tracks, I don't know what will. You're staring at three lovely style bloggers, one of which may look a wee bit familiar to y'all. In the center is Gabi Gregg, the former MTV TJ and MTV Style contributor, who happens to run an incredibly successful fashion blog, GabiFresh. When she's not showing off her 'dorbs daily ensembles, she's working as a columnist for InStyle or discussing body image and bikinis on the Today show (NBD). Somehow between all that, she still found time to create her first-ever plus size swimsuit collection (that she announced in late April), which is officially available to purchase starting today. Eeee! Her five-piece swimsuitsforall line features everything from neon bikinis to galaxy print coverups, and I'm OB-SESSED. Obviously I needed to get the low-down on Gabi's entire collection, so I hit her up to give me ALL the deets behind her pieces including, yes, that amazing Spring Breakers-inspired lookbook shoot. Check out the full interview below!

Rihanna is #CCcertified in her Karl tee.
Photo: @Badgalriri Instagram

There's no denying that Rihanna is #CCcertified. Whether she's dripping in Chanel chains or wearing Karl Lagerfeld's face on her t-shirt, Robyn Fenty is an undeniable master of the double C's. Let's focus on that t-shirt for a second. Just last week, Ri popped up on Instagram wearing a watercolored white tee with her boy Karl's portrait painted on it, rocking the caption "I'm so #CCcertified u aint een know it!!" She paired the tee with a pair of cut off, frayed denim shorts; a black blazer; the aforementioned chains; Wayfarers and her signature bright red lip. Basically the look was perfect in its simplicity, while still being luxe and young and just a little silly. Is this yet another example of the ungettable amazingness that is Badgalriri's life? Or, could this be a rare example of one of Ri's looks that we could actually snag for ourselves? Turns out, although we can't find Ri's exact t-shirt (it was probably custom made for her by Karl himself, or something), there are plenty of options out there if you want to wear a Karl Lagerfeld tee yourself!

How many times have you looked back at Solange's SXSW outfits or Katy Perry's two-piece KCA steez and thought, "MAN, I really want to try the matchy smatchy top and bottom look, but have NO idea where to get that in my price range?" Welp, for a while, you were totally right. It was a style reserved for phresh-out-the-runway boutiques and a completely different tax bracket, but never fear, fellow non-celebs, we have located the look WITHIN our price range. Some retailers like Topshop and River Island make it easy with dedicated co-ordinates shopping sections, but other places require a little more digging to uncover a full set. Luckily for you, we did the dirty work already and organized our findings neatly by category, and we're pretty sure we've found a printed co-ordinates set for every steez. Check it out!

CROP TOPS + SKIRTS

Have any dresses with cut-outs or sheer panels at the waist? These crop top + skirt pairings are basically the same thing but taken to the next level. A short top worn with a skirt so high-waisted only a subtle sliver of skin shows through. They work in sleeveless + bodycon combinations like this Tomorrow Land Crop Tank ($48.00) and Skirt ($55.00) pair from Nasty Gal or in short-sleeved + skater skirt looks like this polka-dotted top ($32.00) and bottom ($36.00) from River Island or this floral shirt ($54.30) and skirt ($67.88) by Minkpink from ASOS.

Ah, the old cap and gown. If you're anything like we were back in those days, you spent all of high school, and who are we kidding, all of college too, counting down the days until you could put on that polyester robe and goofy mortarboard and strut your stuff straight to a diploma (and with it, freedom). Graduation is a huge deal, one of the most important things you'll ever achieve, and as such, it's an occasion that warrants a fly outfit. There are also SO. MANY. PHOTOS. taken on graduation day, that you want to make sure you won't have to hide your head in shame over something you wore. Here's the thing, though: you can't really see much underneath your gown, so aside from the lunch or dinner you have with your parents after it's all over, your dress doesn't actually make much of an impact. Your shoes, on the other hand, are everything. Whether you're into sneakers, heels, or flats, we found 15 pairs of kicks that will add just the right amount of pop to that gown.

Who doesn't love a classic wedge for a classic day.

There's a solid chance that your graduation, or at least some part of it, is taking place outside. The last thing you want are your shoes making you anxious by sinking into the grass on the football field, or, oof, tripping you up on your way to your diploma. Wedges are a solid, safe bet if a classic look and some height is what you're after. If you just want a tiny little boost,the ankle strap mini wedge from Madewell ($94.50) comes in a grip of super springy colors. If more height is what you're after, Marais USA's Firefly Wedge in Clambake ($160.00) is a super summery answer (that will perfectly match the classic Essie color of the same name). If you want something a little tougher, Dolce Vita's Mosey Platform Booties ($179.00) still give you the height, but add a little edge. If classic summer is more your look, J.Crew's Sardinia wedge espadrilles ($118.00) have that french seaside je ne sais quoi written all over them. Finally, if simple and bright is exactly what the doctor ordered, look no further than Seychelles Thyme Wedge Sandal ($95.00).

Leonardo DiCaprio

Our hearts will go on for Leonardo DiCaprio.
Photo: Etsy/Society 6/Amazon

I don't care how old you were when the movie first came out, if you were alive during the theater release of Titanic, you have a 99.9999% chance of being a Leonardo DiCaprio STAN. Maybe it's a closeted superfandom, something you shield from your friends, family, and co-workers. Maybe it's a latent pining after Leo that you haven't even THOUGHT to conjure since his debilitating portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator (also, his tobacco teeth in Django Unchained ALDFGK;LDF YICK). Whatever its manifestation, your love for Leo is there. Given all that, it's high time you dust off those Lip Smackers-laden Tiger Beat magazines because the reunion of DiCaprio with his William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet director Baz Luhrmann for the film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby has us all FEELINGSY about Leo's heartthrob heyday. To help ourselves through it (and maybe you too), we've rounded up all the best Leonardo DiCaprio Stan Swag the Internet has to offer.

Mom Jeans

MOM JEANS.
Photo: Urban Outfitters/Topshop/ASOS

In case y'all forgot, it's Mother's Day this weekend! Usually, we'd tell you to swipe up a super cute frock and wedges to celebrate the occasion (like these!), but this year we decided to do things just a WEE bit differently--by wearing mom jeans. You know the ones--they have a super high waist, usually come in a light/acid wash, are slightly baggy, tapered and cropped above the ankle. Saturday Night Live did a "Mom Jeans" sketch that PERFECTLY explains these bad boys in all their ill-fitting glory. Now you're probably like, "Um, why would I want to wear these weirdly baggy jeans in front of my family on Mother's Day?" and, well, honestly the fit is actually totally on-trend right now. Don't be scared of high-waisted jeans! Topshop even opened a "Mom Jeans" section of their website dedicated to that style of denim, so we know for a fact that we're onto something.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
