WSGN-Insider: We thought Culottes died a timely and permanent death back in the early 80’s. Unfortunately, this particularly frumpy and unattractive, one-step-up-from pajamas, drapery is back with a vengeance.
Touted as the new comfort costume, the trend is currently being featured as a ready-to-wear, runway copy of Pre-Summer 16 collections, previously showcased by designers like Stella McCartney (key work: copy).
Paired with the recently popular block heel, ‘Team Crusty’s’ shock and awe effect provides as much flattering aesthetic for a woman’s figure than some other historically worst-fashions-ever like harem pants, scrunchies and puffball skirts. In our modern, ‘must be different’ at any cost little fashion minds, Culottes are sure to be a frightening (wishfully thinking, short-lived) run-away hit.
With this past February officially noted as the hottest on record here in Los Angeles, it’s becoming clear that we’ll need to be beautifully prepared for an endless Summer instead of El Nino.
Pretty Little Liars actress. Shay Mitchell wasted no time sporting her own cute PilyQ tropical-wear. Actually photographed recently in Hawaii her Palms Kendall Tunic is island fresh and a perfect inspiration for the mainland. ($92; www.pilyq.com).
To celebrate Spring, last Saturday Old Navy’s official 2015 season style ambassadors Emily Current + Meritt Elliott camped out at the Fig & Olive Atrium in West Hollywood, CA where they hung out their best new looks.
We loved our taste of “wanderlust”. Everything about the line and the day evoked fresh Americana simplicity, crisp, vibrant colors and patterns. We had fun stamping leather keychains, getting our hair braided, pressing pennies, and the mouthwatering food too!

Of all the awards season fashions and street trends we saw this week, AnnaLynne McCord sporting her LANY Let’s Make it Brief backpack in black ($60) and Zombie Beach YOLOHA Snapback cap ($25;) on Instagram, wowed us most for its totally put together, sporty chic and colorful style. We’re loving the price points too!

“It is a very, very foolish thing for a man not to be well dressed” -Lord Chesterton.
What would a new year be without a a style review? Roger Stone gives us his not always so cheeky but fairly spot of review of the celebs we love, hate and almost forgot about except for their fabulous moments and terrible faux pas.
By Roger Stone
It is that time of year when those of us who paid attention to such things recall the tradition of the late Hollywood designer Mr. Blackwell – who, for nearly 50 years, released an eagerly anticipated annual list that began as a chronicle of the world’s best and worst dressed people. The flamboyant, media-savvy Blackwell spared no one — celebrities, movie stars, athletes, socialites and captains of industry were all under his microscope.
Since Blackwell’s death in 2008, we here at the Stone On Style have proudly picked up the torch, continuing this New Year’s tradition, but in its original “Best/Worst” format. It is a proud pursuit, and inasmuch as it truly is a labor of love, it is also an increasingly difficult endeavor, as the state of dress for the public-at-large continues to slide.
We vigilantly monitor the world of media, entertainment, sports, politics, academia, art and fashion to determine who has style… and who truly doesn’t. As an aside, we do recognize that we write this at a time where more gain notoriety for undressing, rather than dressing. The number of naked selfies from actresses and models that have “leaked” drive millions to view the latest celebrity nude.
