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.
This fall is a great season to stock up on trends that are classic, and flattering to so many different body types. One trend I am adoring, and know will still look chic years from now is the return of the cape.
I know, many of you when you hear "cape" may think of Superman and
Sherlock Holmes. However, this fall's cape is far more elegant,
versatile and figure-flattering than a red satin or ankle-length number
famous made famous by your favorite storybook hero. A cape is a great
piece to wear during transitional weather--you can slip over a tee and
jeans for a trip to the market, over a suit or dress with ease, or use
it as a layering piece with a heavy sweater or fitted jacket for
additional warmth come winter. Capes work on slight and curvy frames,
petite and tall women, and will work even if you are between sizes (or expecting!).
Here are some of my favorite budget-friendly capes for this fall--styles that are kind to your figure, your lifestyle and your wallet.
One thing I got out of watching the Royal Wedding on Friday was a major desire for a chic chapeau. Hats and fascinators are wedding attire must-haves in the UK, but over the past couple of seasons have started to become a trend in the US. After William and Kate's event this past week, I believe they will be more on trend than ever. Why let all the Brits have the millinery fun?
Here's your guide to hats, fascinators and fabulous fashionable millinery!
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.
