Happy New Year! Each year, millions of Americans make New Year resolutions to lose weight, stop smoking, and end bad habits. Many of these resolutions go by the wayside before we even celebrate Valentine's Day. For 2012 make some resolutions that are easier to stick to, and will benefit your personal style all year long!
I have often written on my blog about wardrobe staples and I feel that every woman should have a simple black dress in her wardrobe. Owning such a dress means you're ready for a wedding, a funeral, a date or a cocktail party.
However, sometimes it's nice to go beyond basic black. And one of those times is the holidays. Right around the corner is the season for eggnog, mistletoe and wining and dining with friends. While you could use a simple LBD to ring the season in with style, choosing color can add a festive touch to your ensemble while also making you stand out in a crowd.
Take a cue from Michelle Obama, who at the South Korea state dinner stood out in a sea of black in her ultraviolet one-shouldered gown from designer Doo-Ri Chung. Her choice of a must-notice color allowed her not to have to rely on sparkly jewelry, a fancy updo or unique makeup. The dress was elegant yet relatively simple, letting the color steal the show.
I love leather and am so glad that leather clothing has come back en vogue this season. Leather is surprisingly versatile and this year designers have been getting creative with it, using it for detailing and in unusual silhouettes.
While leather clothing is a classic wardrobe addition (I have leather skirts and trousers that are over a decade old and still very stylish and on-trend), they can be pretty pricey. It is possible to add the leather trend to your wardrobe without spending an arm and a leg.

When we think of rainy days, we usually think of spring. As we all know, April showers bring May flowers! The thing is, it rains during other seasons, and come late summer and fall your candy pink umbrella and lemon yellow slicker may seem too spring-like to work with your wardrobe. I searched the web for some of my favorite fashion for inclement weather.
All of these pieces are long on style but short on price, ensuring you stay comfortable, dry, and stylish all season long:
Unless you live under a rock, you know that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge just finished up a tour of North America. Every blog, newspaper, and morning talk show has broken down not only the royal couple's itinerary and activities, but Kate's sartorial choices.
We all don't have a royal jet or royal funds (or an on-call hair stylist), but we can learn from Kate Middleton and her travel wardrobe. Throughout the entire trip, she always looked effortlessly chic, comfortable, and completely appropriate for every situation.
