Going against the grain: Are you a trend-setter?

What constitutes a trend-setter and how do you locate a real one in the bucket full of fakes? In my experience, most trends are set by individuals who dare to step out of the box of normalcy, and go against the grain of what we consider the norm.

Pull My Threads: Spring trends for hot legs



Coming out of winter all I can focus on is not wearing rain boots and coats. Usually around March/April is when I hit the internet hard to find new some threads to rock during the warmer days of spring into the hot summer days.

Tie Me Up: A look at AP Fashion Over 30 Years
