Fashion Advice for the Modern Anchor

From a concerned fashionista...

Coop, don’t wear pinstripes two nights in a row. Your ties are divine, the shirts wonderful, but please, vary the pinstriped suit. I know they’re your favorite, but for those of us who pay attention to every detail, and you know we do, give us another selection from the Ralph Lauren or Prada lines.

Wearing the pinstripes two days in a row is a like a woman wearing the same color or even the same blouse two days in a row. You just can’t get away with it…trust me on this from personal experience. Remember, CNN NY is not the middle of Africa, Afrghanistan or New Orleans and the rumpled A&F shirt just won't cut it here (even though I love the look). I know you missed NY Fashion Week while on assignment, so if you need help shopping, give me a call. You know where to find me.

One more little thing, don’t cross your legs on national television. I dig your shoes and at least you wore dark socks. Just remember, we can see what’s really going on under the desk as things are pretty transparent these days.

Thanks to liberation337 at Anderloads for the great caps.

I usually don't much attention to the clothes you wear, but since becoming an avid viewer of Scott Schuman's blog ( I have been looking at fashion with a critical eye. Scott has been teaching his fans how to analyze clothing, so I suspect there will be more analysis of what you wear on-air.

At least you crossed your legs at the knees and not the ankles. Crossing them at the ankles is for the ladies. ;)

@jade -lol. I noticed leg crossing. I don't mind at all, it's cute. But don't forget, it's not the old desk. You can't hide behind this one! I think couple of new "war shirts" won't hurt either -)

I just thought the leg crossing was...well...a little know...I'm not speculating, but I just didn't think it looked right ;)

"360" Note: Cooper wore another pinstripe suit tonight. Day 3: Pinstripe Continues.

I really think he is too cheap to have a lot of suits. I think it's a WASP/old money thing. Sort of endearing. I'll bet he doen't even own any Prada, things just look like Prada on him!

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
