BCBG shows us 4 new and sexy ways to wear a men's shirt
Take the traditional work shirt and up the sexy factor.
This morning, Nikki gave us behind-the-scenes access to the model fittings for BCBG's show. Now, let's take a look at the clothes that came down the runway.
The first part of the show was all about showing a sexy new way for women to wear a men's shirt. But I'm not talking about your run-of-the-mill collared number. These dresses and tops were deconstructed to take the traditional work shirt and up the sexy factor.

Lubov Azria, chief creative officer at BCBG Max Azria Group, said the design process started nine months ago, when she opened up the brand's archives for inspiration. "I realized it's not about those pieces but about the whole process," she told me after the show. "I wanted to show new proportions and take that men's shirt apart and then put it back together. I think it's an empowering look for women."
She decided to go with neutral colors and even included crop tops (there have been a ton of bare midriffs on the spring 2014 runways and it's only day one!).
Check out a few of my favorite looks from BCBG:
Lubov said these looks are for the woman who is at the forefront of fashion. Do you agree? Would you like to try one of these menswear-inspired pieces on?

I don't like any of these. J G...just put his shirt on over a cami and tie it at the waist. I am of course assuming that his shirts will be big on you. If you are petite and he's tall just put the shirt on over leggings and belt it like a tunic. Totally cute and comfy.
I think the second one is fab. Love the way the drop down from shoulder is like a vertical epaulet, evoking an almost military-ish look- good balance on the theme.

Sprinkle in these wet weather essentials so you'll be ready for whatever these springtime days bring.
Let's face it: winter's bitter cold left us feeling disillusioned with our wardrobes. So with warmer days ahead, it's time to shop for must-have pieces that'll keep your look fresh for months to come.
Every bride deserves to look flawless on her wedding day. So we say: Indulge a little. Book a facial (or six!) and invest in a great waterproof mascara. With this guide, getting ready for your big day has never been easier.
Reality TV: such a mindless guilty pleasure, mostly filled with questionable spray tans and insane hair extensions. But in honor of the season premiere of one of our favorites, The Real Housewives of Orange County, we decided to celebrate a select few reality stars who’ve displayed legitimately great hair and makeup. Yes, there actually are a few! And we had to go all the way back to The Real World of the mid-’90s to find our first.
I can’t tell you how many times one ill-timed sneeze ruined all of my hard work with a mascara wand. #allergyproblems.
While we’re not averse to shelling out upwards of $30 for an amazing lipstick, many of our standby lip colors cost a whole lot less than that. The drugstore is full of high-quality, long-lasting lipsticks in gorgeous shades that—wait for it!—ring in under $10. Click through above to shop our favorites!
What’s the perfect add-on to your beauty look? A hair accessory, of course! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, every year there seems to be a new “it” hair piece that rules the moment. In the ’50s, a dainty bow-tied head scarf was perfectly housewife-chic. In the ’60s and ’70s, real flower crowns officially became the epitome of boho style—your outfit simply wasn’t complete without a daisy topper. Fast-forward to the ’90s and you had a bevy of creative hair charms and baubles, including butterfly clips, hair wraps and those infamous bra strap headbands (shudder).
The right blush can warm up your complexion, create the illusion of cheekbones, and even make you look younger. (Yes, really!) Here, the most flattering shades for fair, medium, olive, and dark skin.
Think you can’t put a price on looking younger? Well, we did—and it’s $25. We challenged dermatologists to find great products that don’t cost even one cent over that amount.
You want to dress in a way that’s young and cool but that doesn’t suggest you’re on your way to a One Direction concert. “The trick to looking younger is adding one fashionable piece to a classic outfit,” says stylist Cher Coulter. Here’s how to nail it.
Hair color is one of the most effective anti-aging tools we have—except when it isn’t. Take your dye job too far (or inky, or frosty) and you can add years to your appearance. Three top colorists weigh in on what to avoid.
News flash: Your youth fix doesn’t have to come in a bottle—or a needle. Your hairstyle could actually take years off (or add them to) your look. Don’t believe us? Check out these celebrities—each one gorgeous, of course, but also looking older due to certain overly perfect hairdos. Anti-aging tip number one? Mess it up a little.
