Just one look at Elle Macpherson at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and it's clear that this winter it is possible to look fashionable and stay warm with a hat. Gone are winters where you can only bundle up in ski caps to ward off chill--this winter is about chic chapeaus that also keep you cozy when the weather is frightful.
Something terrible happened on Elm Street. No one was murdered or kidnapped--this is about Freddy Krueger and he has lost something. Something that defined his character. Unfortunately for Elm Street it was not his clawed gloves. Freddy lost his brown Fedora hat.
Gasp! Say it isn't so, but it's true. He needs a cool hat to complement his red and dark green-striped sweater signature look. The hat also helps round out his sinister character.
Christmas is only two weeks away--have you finished all your holiday shopping? If not, here are some budget-friendly gifts for the fashionista on your list. Each item is under $40, available online from retailers known for fast shipping, and sure to please even the most discerning style-savvy woman in your life:
Well, you hunted across the web, found all the coupons you could
and finally bought that item at the lowest possible price at that
point of time from the website you were comfortable buying from.
Now what? Do you regularly go back and check that the price has not
dropped? Did you know that most retailers will do a
price adjustment for you within 30 days of your purchase. And if
they don't agree on that, depending on the price drop and
shipping/return policies you can always return and buy that item
I have had many readers contact me asking me how to style outfits with belts. I credit Michelle Obama for really making this trend popular--she has been known for wearing all widths of belts over shift dresses, cardigans, even wool coats. An addition of a belt can transform the look of a wardrobe staple while also transforming the look of your own body shape. Belts can accentuate a waist, or even create the illusion of a waist on a straighter figure.
Now that belts have come back into fashion with such intensity, it is easy to find belts in any shape, size or material.
Each season new trends come out, but that doesn't mean those trends are flattering or wearable for most women. However Spring 2011 has come out with some amazing trends that are very wearable for all women now, but can also be well-loved wardrobe staples for many seasons more.
