It’s no question that one of the most covetable denim collections around belongs to that of Leandra Medine, aka The Man Repeller. Whether we’re catching Leandra in a light wash or the deepest indigos, they’re a staple of both her front row and everyday style, as she slips easily from the enchanted Valentino boots to Paul Andrew heels and back again. This OG blogger has come out with her latest collab with none other than the team at denim Levi reviver Re/Done. She follows in the footsteps of fellow Re/Done collaborators such as model Elsa Hosk, jewelry designer Pamela Love, and model Alessandra Ambrosia.
Take the time to scan many fashion mags such as W Magazine’s April issue, and some how it seems like a high-fashion editorial yearbook of all the celeb teens you know and love including Willow Smith, Kiernan Shipka and Zendaya on its April issue. Move on to other luxury glossies and you can see Cindy Crawdford’s exact lush mini me, Kaia Gerber with rappers and models in a campaign that of Alexander Wang. Louis Vuitton has 17-year-old Jaden Smith who models for their women’s wear, as well as Lourdes “Lola” Leon and Amandla Stenberg for a new fragrance ad for Stella McCartney.
W chief Stefano Tonchi addresses the staggeringly young age of his cover stars. “The new generation, Gen Z, which spans current teenagers like the three on our cover and their peers in their early 20s, is in a hurry to be recognized, yes—but in a refreshingly thoughtful way,” he writes. “Unlike their predecessors, they are no slackers. Generally speaking, they are curious, determined, and hardworking. If there is anything they lack, it’s a sense of entitlement.”
Last September’s cover of The Fader, featured Rihanna wearing a blush pink slip dress by AWAVEAWAKE over a similarly hued t-shirt, in a look that has become the go-to for any girl hoping to strike that perfect sartorial balance between careful and carefree. While everything that Riri wears is sure to set a trend, the buzz around the demure cover surrounded what she was wearing on her feet. The shoot was the first photoset confirming the long anticipated arrival of the third installment in the FentyxPuma catalog: fuzzy slippers. Yes, slippers. In a move that would make Grace Coddington proud, Rihanna’s latest iteration behind her line with the shoe and activewear titan is a cross between your favorite sandal and your most comfiest pair of slip-ons, perfect for in he house and outside. And, now after months of further suspense, the date of when the shoes are set to hit stores has been announced.
Some days you feel like putting some pep into your step when dressing up, and sometimes you want to just throw on a potato sack and call it a day. It’s not bad to have that mentality from time to time, but let’s put this logic into action carefully. This is where the magic of designer dresses come in. It’s the one piece to fit your needs on those days, but let it be known all dresses are not created equal. Some can reflect those exact days as exactly how you feel: DUMPY. Let’s avoid that look though, shall we? Just as it is important when choosing the right significant other or career path, the same goes for the dress that makes you feel good just by slipping it on. As I always say, when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you reflect good.
Here at Fashion Hauler, the tastebuds are a plenty when it comes to fashion. It’s important to play around with your style, and not keep it so serious from time to time. Today our outfit feels are a little bit of grunge, meets quirky, with a little playful fun. We have our eye on all things Gucci right now. Seriously, the Spring S/S 16 collection is dynamite and we won’t stop talking about it! Now if only we could get our hands on the coveted $10k hand-painted Gucci leather jackets — that’s deemed the only moto jacket you’ll need this Spring by Vogue, our life would be so complete.
Remember back in the day when you’d wear a baby tee you snagged from the merch stand at that epic My Chemical Romance (or The Killers or The Strokes) concert over a white long-sleeve tee? You probably wore the layers with your trusty boot-cut jeans (unless you were an early adopter of skinnies).
Well, if you’re feeling nostalgic for those outfits of yore, you’re not the only one, because according to the fashion week street style stars, the graphic tee layered over a long sleeve shirt is back—but with an elevated 2016 twist. For one, the short sleeve T-shirts have a more borrowed-from-the-boys feel, with boxier, slouchier silhouettes. Secondly, the long-sleeve underlayer veers away from the basic white tee we once knew (think: turtlenecks and graphics). And as for jeans, embrace the wealth of cuts and washes available these days—from high-waist wide legs to raw-hem straight ones.
So crank up some “Mr. Brightside” and time-travel back to the mid-aughts with these looks.

The Topshop Unique F/W 16′ Runway show made its debut just yesterday. Just as we are ready to leave the cold weather behind us in anticipation for Spring’s colorful prints and shorter hemlines—we’ve fallen back in love all over again with fur-luxe coats, tailored trousers, and flowy Victorian-inspired dresses that graced the catwalk yesterday. Models Taylor Hill and Lineisy Montero were among some of the models who walked the runway in Topshop’s Sunday presentation.
Topshop’s creative director Kate Phelan declared backstage, that the collection was all about “unravelling the great unknown of British style.” Outerwear was a major highlight in yesterday’s show with fur lined bomber jackets, crisp white shirts outfitted under silk lined leather jackets. Leopard print was expected to be seen with leather miniskirts, as well as leopard print shirts and cashmere coats. Elements of athleisure wear was also seen sprinkled in between the 42 looks presented.
You may have seen this image of Bad Gal Riri circulating late last month. This photo was captioned, “Listening to Anti,” referring to her latest album release while pictured in her embellished Dolce & Gabanna gold crown headphones. Within less than 24 hours the $9,000 pair sold out. What’s with the $9,000 price tag? Well for starters it could be that they’re encrusted with Swarovski crystals and pearls, and bonus is that you can actually utilize them for your listening pleasure! What’s this about? Fashion that functions, holler.
Today in LA feels like a hot summer day. It feels like we’ve hardly had to wait for the weather to slowly warm up, in fact we’re feeling a little cheated out of our favorite cool-tempered season: Spring.

When the weather warms up, that means we can ditch the bulky layers and opt for shorter hems and stock up on some of your favorite sandals. We’re rounding up some key buys you’ll want to nab now just so you’ll be street style ready in time for spring in March.
