Hot or Not

We don’t always agree about new micro trends… Our bloggers share the ones that are up for debate.

Like it or not, fall (fashion) is here. While we are making no apologies for the ah-mazingness that is autumn wear, we know you may be hesitant to, ahem, fully embrace the season just yet. Well, CIS knows how to turn that frown…
