I am thinking about buying a men/women's clothing store in a small town. What can I do to update it?

Q. I can't spend a lot of money, but I would like to make the store not look so 80's. Any suggestions about how to update dressing rooms, choose paint colors, use trendy decor would be appreciated. Also, what kind of fixtures are popular right now (mannequins, racks, display cases)? If you have any tips on going to market, that would be great too!

A. well i would try store & my friend redid an old store with tons of stuff from ikea they are affordable & easy to assemble. For the markets i would take alot of linesheets & write notes dont sign anything incase you change your mind you doont want them to have your signature because then its hard to cancel an order. I usually write all my orders after the show to see all my options you can budget that way better too. Definetly wear comfortable shoes & bring some candy or granola bars because it gets tiring talking allll day. My favorite show is in vegas Magic & project you need to go the whole time because they also have alot of great seminars that you can learn from.

what are the trendy shoe styles this year?
Q. I'm starting a business selling shoes but I need to know which are the most trendy styles for women this year. I don't want to buy a bunch of shoes that will not sell. I know that really high heels are not so in, but what about wedges or slip-ons? Please let me know your suggestions,


A. Well for teens, like myself you should try these:

* Flats - everyone loves them even adults.

* Converse or Vans. They are very in.

* my personal favorite shoes are harajuki, it's hard to spell. But they are proably the most expensive sneakers out there. The style of them is japanese harajuki obviously and they have a lot of high top and bright colors.

But the MUST haves are pretty much flats and vans. Guys also wear vans.

what are the current trends in clothes shops?

Q. I have a job interview in a clothes shop and was wondering what current fashion trends are.

A. I don't follow women's fashion but I can provide the guys' trends for fall 2012 through summer 2013, or at least how they're predicted to be. This is according to major runway shows in Europe, so trends in American stores or unique shops will vary.

Some general trends: Slim pants/jeans (sometimes skinny), rolled up once or twice, JACKETS, hairstyles that are short on the sides/back and styled on top, accessories like watches and bracelets always make you look more stylish

Fall 2012 has some very light blues and oranges leftover from summer 2012 but they're only thrown in. Mainly, it's getting darker with blacks and grays, occasionally an obscure white or yellow dominated outfit. "A play on fabric" as Armani calls it is trendy, mixing different patterns and fabrics that you wouldn't normally match, as long as they go together in color. Outfits should stay simple and sleek though.

Winter 2012-13 is best described as "dark" and sometimes "tribal" with almost all black, brown and gray on jackets, pants and shoes/belts. Fabric play still revealant: For example, charcoal sweater with leather jacket throw-over.

Spring/summer 2013 should be sleek and include Mediterranean colors not only in just clothes but especially accessories. Like turquoise belts/shoes, bags and shirt accents. "Easter" colors is a good way to put it also. The base colors are blue and green.

Switching to skirts, and I have a couple questions?
Q. My mom and I are going to a Baptist church and now my mom is saying that I'm no longer aloud to wear pants. The bible says that pants are mens clothing and women are not to wear mens clothing. So I was just curious about a few things. In the winter, will people think we are crazy for wearing skirts? Will it look weird for me to wear my converse (they're my favorite shoes!!) with skirts? Oh, and any tips to accesorize or any tips period? Personal experience? Thank you all so much!!

A. Hey!!! God Bless You!! My name is Lissette and it's a pleasure to be able to help you!

1. I don't know where you live, but it is quite fashionable to wear skirts during the winter time. You can wear it with black stockings, belts, necklaces (jewelry), scarves, hats, trench coats, etc.

2. Quite honestly, you should not wear your converse with skirts everyday. You can look for some cute flats which can be very comfortable (no heels) and will match better with your outfit. Here are some sites that illustrate ways to incorporate your converse into your wardrobe:

Neutrals go well with ANY color in your outfit:
Black, brown, khaki, gray, denim, white, navy.

It's also good for you to understand the basic types of skirts before you off shopping:

What is a cute casual outfit I can wear to school?

Q. My wardrobe is pretty basic, lots of t shirts and jeans. Can you guys help me make a couple cute outfits I can wear to school? I'm looking for something a little trendy and casual. My style is generally somewhat preppy and laid back. I love stores like forever21, american eagle, nordstroms, aeropostale, abercrombie, lulu's, bloomingdales, delia's and dsw. If the clothing items you choose could be from those stores or other easily accessible clothing retailers, I'd really appreciate it. thnx.

A. My advice is to always have some good wardrobe basics that can add a little something different to a simple outfit. I would suggest always having:

- boots! boots are huge right now, especially since it's winter. They add a hot and classy vibe without hopefully being trashy. Uggs are always good if you want to be comfy and casual. Slouchy boots (like the ones in this picture: in black, camel, grey, or creme are very fashionable. Also, fringe boots and tall leather boots are cute too. Heels add a commanding and sexy vibe to your legs and the way you walk.

- belts. Don't get anything too trashy or tacky. Stick to stuff like leather. (abercrombie or hollister. Forever 21 has some funky stuff but some stuff is also cheap and looks just as nice)

- Simple v-necks (anywhere. i like forever 21)

- Jeans in lots of different washes (if you're lucky to be really skinny and you have the money, try abercrombie or hollister.)

- rugbys! they're cute and preppy and give an instant casual, yet presentable look. (abercrombie, AE, pretty much all of the stores you asked for)

- Converse. They're classical and adorable, but stick to the lo-tops. Try DSW,, foot locker, or pretty much any shoe store.

- scarves. whenever i have a "blah" type of day, i wear a simple t shirt and a scarf because it looks like i put in more effort into looking good than i actually did. (try nordstroms, delias or pacsun)

- big earrings. attracts attention to your face and makes you look mature and cute. (forever 21 or charlotte russe)

- Yoga pants. Get black, navy and grays. They really make you feel skinny and confident, but make sure you wear a thong! American Eagle, Victorias secret, or Target. Pretty much every store that sells athletic clothes have them too.

On top of that, i usually stick to skinny jeans (hydraulic jeans from nordstroms are a great brand) and flowy, banded shirts (forever 21). I hope i helped(:

I have big feet. How am I to find a pair of descent, good-looking shoes with feet as big as mine??
Q. It's like this, I go to a shoe store & all of he shoes there are so trendy and everything. So, for feet as big as mine, I cant find one that I'm satisfied with. I wear sport shoes to school. And that ain't comfortable.

Has anyone made money on ebay?

Q. basically, what i want to do is buy quality clothes and shoes from thrift stores and resell them on ebay. aftering shipping and fees, it would appear at first glance to not be that profitable. has anyone tried doing this?

A. I've been doing exactly that part-time since March 2011, and by January 2012 I had made PowerSeller and Top-Rated Seller. There's an entire group of people on the eBay discussion boards (clothing category) who do this, many full-time.

It's not a get-rich-quick scheme, but if you are dedicated to it and have good thrift stores in your area, it is a get-rich-slow scheme. You have to come up with what works for you. I tend to sell what I personally like, which is classic styles in larger women's sizes (12 to 3X). Some sellers have good luck with expensive name brands, trendy teens' jeans and sneakers, baby clothes, or whatever. Good luck!

Q. This is going to be a long question. :)
Well school starts in about 3 or 4 weeks. I guess I'm pretty, but I'm tired of being known as the "cute one" to all of my friends. I want to look prettier, hotter, and more mature. I also want to look like a girl guys stop and stare at. But I don't want to lose myself!!
I'm going into high school.
I'm maybe 4'11". Pretty short. I have medium skin that tans to a dark walnut in the summer. I have almond shaped dark brown eyes, and dark brown hair. I'm really thin, and people make fun of me for it and being short. I have a small amount of really long (overgrown) layers, and overgrown sidebangs.
My style is like a t-shirt, jeans, polos, sneakers kind. Really casual.
I have a bunch of questions, for different categories.

1) Should I cut my hair like this (having a heart-shaped face?):…
2) Does giving yourself natural highlights with apple cider vinegar (1 cup water, 1 cup ACV) actually work? I'm tempted to try, because my mom doesn't want me to go to a salon for highlights and she won't let me buy a kit.
3) How could I fix my hair like this?:…
I actually have no curling iron, but if I wanted my hair curly I usually use braids and sleep in them overnight. I also own a hair dry (but no straightener). Do I just have to make really loose braids to get the waves?
4) Is there a way to make your hair grow a little faster? I want it to be a little longer before it gets cut.
5) Any cute hairstyles, casual like messy buns, etc.?
6) Any healthy hair tips?

I'm petite. I want a cute, fun girly style.

2) How much is enough makeup?
3) How do you curl your eyelashes?
4) Can Vaseline be used as mascara?
5) What/ how should I do my makeup if I want my eyes to look bigger?
6) Or, how can I work with my almond eye shape?
7) Any beauty tips?

1) What's a good beauty routine?
2) How often should I shave/pluck/wax?
3) How do I shape and pluck and groom my eyebrows?

A. hair:

u need to highlight to get that look vinegar wont work. You can go to beauty salon get color highlights with high lift tint. High lift tint is a color and little amounts of bleach its less harsh and less blond if you want…

braided hair will work with waves but it looks more of the messy ubed head look. If you want ringlet waves you have to set hair after wash with mouse than curl with medium iron

curled waves:…

braided waves:…

prettiest cuts are with layers. Layer layer and face frame the front. If do bangs do the angle ones.

cleanse, tone, moisturize, twice a day. exfoliate once a week, cucumber for bags, AVEENO good products. I liked Proactive for zits it took a few months to work but it did


a good pare of jeans
ballet flats
converse for sneakers
leggings with skirts
find outfits that you can mix and match with others
tote bag cuter than backpack

vaseline will look dewy but no length, metal eye curler not plastic will work, I love the Mabelline classic pink and green mascara works well

im a college student 3.8 my step daughter high school is in Bacholorate program and was in GATE.. DO THE ASSIGNMENTS IMMEDIATELY. If you have more than one do the one that's due first. Find how you retain information better and work with that. For example if you are an auditory learner bring tape recorders to school, if you are visual take notes then when you study write of flash cards and have someone quiz you.
Listen always take notes, study, organize folder, and practice the SAT its important for college. You can find SAT practice test on amazon and its written by the College Board that administers the tests.

also get organized: put tabs and separate your classes by categories in y our folder. Keep track of assignments


The best advice is the simpliest: Be yourself

Who is that self?
This is what you need to find out. The teen who self reflects the most and finds out what he or she wants in life and who she is is the most confident adult. Make goals, what you do in this life as a career doesnt define who you are. Find what you love. What makes you, you.

Rise above peer pressure or mean people. Make your own decisions and make them so you dont regret what you did later on in life.

Be nice be you and smile. If someone is mean let them go, move on, and they dont deserve you.

Learn to use manners so few women act like ladies anymore

Can anyone point me to an official definition of Capri pants and cropped pants?

Q. My workplace outlaws Capri pants but not cropped.

A. Although I don't see much difference in them, I found this article that explains the "differences"....

By Becky Cairns
Standard-Examiner staff

Put on your fashion caps, folks, and answer this puzzler: What is the difference between capri pants and crop pants?

a. Capris are always black; crops are always khaki

b. Capris are loose and baggy; crops are skintight

c. Capris have cuffs; crops do not

d. Capris and crops are both shorter than regular pants.

You're not a fashion dunce if you didn't answer "D," although exactly how much shorter these pants are is up for discussion.

Capris generally hit just below the knee or at midcalf; crops fall about three-fourths of the way down the calf or near the ankle.

More specifically, capris are around 19 to 21 inches long and crops 24 to 25 inches long, says Leanne Furman, a spokeswoman for Mervyn's in Hayward, Calif.

"The terms crops and capris are almost used interchangeably," Furman said in a phone interview.

Cynthia Nellis, a fashion writer for the Web site, agrees, explaining, "Crops, in my definition, are longer; capris, in my version, are shorter."

However, the term "crop" is also a catch-all phrase that describes all sorts of shorter pants, be they pedal pushers, floods, clamdiggers or high waters, Nellis said in a phone interview from Dallas.

As with fashion sizing, there is no standardization of these terms, Nellis says. One company's capris may well be another company's crops.

Capris were introduced in the 1950s by designer Emilio Pucci at a boutique on the island of Capri, off the coast of Italy.

By the '60s, the short, slim-fitting pants were catching the eye of fashionable folk like Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy and Mary Tyler Moore.

Both capris and crops -- a more recent innovation -- have become popular in the last three to six years, in part as an alternative to shorts, Furman says.

Pants of all types are popular nowadays, Furman says, and shorts, which "don't hide as much as some people might like," are in a downswing.

Nellis says capris and crops allow women to "show off a little bit of leg," and it's generally a flattering part of the leg -- the lower calf and ankle.

Although crops and capris used to be primarily casual wear, they can be dressed up for career fashions, too.

Crop pants teamed with a sweater-set top and low-heeled shoes could go to the office for casual dress day. Or a trendy look this fall will be tweed-like crops with coordinating jackets, Furman says.

Crops and capris can be worn by all ages and sizes of folks, Nellis says. The pants aren't strictly for women, either. Some designers make shorter-length pants for men. Nellis says that's fun because "men don't get a lot of variation in their styles."

The short pants are as versatile as jeans, Nellis says, because they can be worn with all types of tops, from T-shirts to camisoles.

how much to open a sneaker store?

A. Below given steps will help you.

1. Review shoe trade magazines or websites, such as Women's Wear Daily for the latest footwear news (see Resources). This will help you identify your niche. While Nike, Reebok and ASICS are popular sneakers, you might be better off selling fashion sneakers such as those made by Sketchers, Diesel, Camper or Puma. In that case, instead of having athletic-themed accessories, you should consider more fashionable accessories, such as wallets, messenger bags, bracelets, watches and sunglasses. Consider incorporating a nightclub theme, particularly if your store will be located within a mall. Visit and, for insider news for shoe sellers.
2. Determine how much room you will need for your store. For a specialty sneaker store in a mall, you may need at least 1000 square feet, including your back room and office. Your back room needs to be large enough to accommodate your inventory and may be as big as the show room. Your show room should offer plenty of benches for customers to sit at while trying on shoes, as well as full length and short mirrors and two or three display tables. For a small store, you should have at least two cash registers. Larger sneaker stores may have as many as eight. If you intend to open a store in a shopping center or as a stand alone sneaker store, it should be at least 1500 square feet. Contact mall management about vacancies fitting your needs. Also, frequent strip malls and shopping centers for vacancies. Other amenities you may need include phone jacks for your registers, a break room, water fountains and bathrooms.
3. Purchase your store front supplies. To stand apart, consider purchasing trendy versions of your supplies, such as colored mannequins, funky chandeliers and cool lighting. If you can't find colored mannequins, purchase a traditional mannequin and spray paint it. For cool lighting, visit; for shelving, mannequins, mirrors and other fixtures.
4. Purchase your must-have supplies such as shopping baskets, display cases, exit signs, shelving, racks, shoe mirrors, shoes store bags, shoe and leg mannequins, inserts, shoe sizers, footlets, shoe fitting stools or benches and any specialty gear. For custom packing supplies, visit; for measuring tools, visit You will also need cleaning supplies, advertising signage, cash registers, receipt paper, schedule forms, bank deposit forms and gift wrapping materials (if offered). For cleaning supplies, shopping baskets, security systems and pricing tags.
5. Visit to purchase wholesale sneakers in some of the latest trends. For generic sneakers under $10 a pair.
6. Purchase insurance for fire, damage and theft, as well as liability and product insurance and worker's compensation insurance.
7. Set up a merchant account. Visit Merchants Account Express (see Resources) to set up an account so that you can begin accepting credit cards. Check out their tools that can help get you set up with the right equipment, such as your Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal, Quickbooks and other software to help you track and manage your inventory and payroll.
8. Train your employees to be fashionable, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Make sure they understand how to measure feet. They should be skilled at recognizing what a customer might be interested in and able to make suggestions for pairing items.

Are there any other nice places to shop for CUTE plus size clothes?
Q. Hi there, I am a Lane Bryant and Torrid fan. I can also find cute clothes at Nordstrom's and Macy's. However, I am not interested in looking like anyone's Granny. Any ideas on other places or websites that sell cute plus size clothes that are well made?


A. I feel your pain! I usually find great clothes at those stores, but some of them aren't my style. I can usually find great basic pieces... like dress pants, button up shirts, and jeans at Macy*s and Lane Bryant but I like the hip stuff too!

In my area, these are the places I go to...

Goody's. Believe it or not, they have a small section in the Plus Size women's department called Junior Plus. I bought some of my favorite summer outfits from there this year. They usually have the trendy stuff, too! I like their summer tops and shorts!

Ross. If you have one of these near you, I suggest that you go! Their Woman's World section usually has a bunch of clothes for the older lady, but they also have a lot of cute style clothes. I got some really cute hoodies and tops there this fall. When I go there, I usually find 90430344909085 things or NOTHING. It can really be hit or miss. If you take the time to look through each hanger, you will find some cute stuff. They go up to a size 4X too. Oh, and check out their dresses! They have a ton of dresses in Plus Size!

Cato. There is a Cato right down the road from me. They have Petite and Plus. What is cool is that anything that they have in Petite... they have the same exact thing in Plus. I hate going by a window and being like... "That outfit is so cute!" only to find out that it only goes up to a size 12. :( Again, you really have to look through the racks, but I have bought some nice stuff there. Also, they have a shoe section with plenty of wides and size 9, 10, 11.

Fashion Bug. While their stuff is usually lower quality, they do gear a lot of their clothes to the younger crowd. They usually have awesome dresses and stuff. I have a hard time finding dresses for weddings and events like that, but Fashion Bug has come through for me a lot. And they have cute underwear, especially if you like thongs and boyshorts.

Believe it or not, I do like to shop at Wal*Mart and Target sometimes. I find great basics like velvet pant suits, long sleeve t-shirts, and capris/shorts.

OldNavy. They used to have a better selection in the store, but they have gone exlusively online for their Plus Sizes. If you know what size you are, then you can shop there. I try not to buy online because I like to try something on, but I am really familiar with their sizes. OldNavy is probably one of my favorite places for summer clothing.

Those are my usual spots! I wish you luck because I know how hard it is to find something that looks cute and is flattering to our body type! Good luck!

Some good starting ASL words to start with toddler?

Q. My daughter is 20 months old but doesn't like to talk much... She has known how to sign "more" for a long time now, since that was the only sign I knew and it seemed to work for a lot of things... She's starting to get frustrated more lately b/c she can't say what she wants. I want to teach her more signs, what are some good ones to start with? I was thinking:
sleep or bed
and since we are dabbling a little in potty training, the signs for bowel movement and urine...
What are some more you think she would utilize?
Yes, we read to her every night and I talk to her a lot about the things around her. I used to work in a child development center and I know she is a little behind average. The doc says that she's not so far behind as to be worried, but you know, you always do. I'm not sure why she's picking up the talking so slowly. She understands what I say to her, though, and she's very good at following instructions.

A. Try to find the Signing Time videos! I believe it is also on PBS (here on Sunday mornings). We rented the videos from our local library though. It shows 2 kids doing all the signs and the mom of the deaf one talks and introduces the signs. Very well done and very engaging. Great place to start.

We started with:
Kitty (or do Dog, whichever you have!)
All Done

But you should add whatever you encounter daily:
Cracker (a little harder sign but useful)

My son is 3 and has a voracious vocabulary but we still work on learning new signs (he probably knows 500 now) and I quiz him so he does not forget them. Many of our friends used it only when the kids were learning to talk, but then quit and the kids have forgotten it. I think sign language is a valuable way of communicating! It's a second language!

It was adorable when my son and his best friend were 14 mos old and his friend wanted some of his snack and said "Share?" while signing Share and my son gave him a piece and said, "Friends" and signed Friend and they both laughed. These 2 talked very early (5-6mos) and easily learned signs of the animals at the zoo (fun & interactive if you can go to the zoo!), colors, and the alphabet at the same time their spoken vocabulary grew. They each spoke 100 words by 12 mos and knew about 40 signs. Sadly the friend moved away when they were 16 mos. It helps to be around other kids who sign! (Not too hard these days, it's pretty trendy!) The support can reinforce what your child is learning.

I was trying to make the point that (counter to what someone else said) that knowing sign language does NOT slow down mental development in any way. Some kids are just slower at talking and sign language can be a BIG help. You will be able to communicate and understand their needs even if they don't talk much. They will eventually! And knowing signs will decrease their tantrums and increase self esteem when they know they are "heard" and understood. That is the case with a friend of mine whose 2.5 yr old daughter still does not talk much and you can barely make out a few words when she does, it's mostly babble. But she can sign a good amount!

Clothing for a 26-year-old?

Q. I am a 26-year-old woman, married last year. I have a lovely baby girl and I'm pregnant with another one. I need a wardrobe rehab, because last time I went on a major shopping I was looking to date. I need to be a bit more dignified, now, but I want to still look good. What stores and styles would you all recomend?

A. Before you overhaul your wardrobe, I highly suggest you buy yourself a copy of The Pocket Stylist by Kendall Farr. If you are wanting to look more dignified without succumbing to "mom frumpy" I think you'll find the advice in this book very helpful. It's not about being on the cutting edge of fashion or anything. It's about looking at your body type and understanding what will look good and what won't. Then it gives good explanations for what sorts of things to add to your wardrobe. It also has advice on shoes, accessories, hair and makeup. It's a nice book - much classier than others of that type.

I'm almost 34, so I dress probably a bit older than what you can get away with, but my favorite stores are J Crew, Banana Republic, and Anthropologie - especially Anthropologie. Rule of thumb - if a store is playing loud music, stay away - it isn't for you anymore. In the summer I wear a lot of capris, dresses, printed tops, I do layered tanks too. I almost always wear a bit of a heal and never, ever wear sneakers unless I'm working out. In the winter I do a lot of sweaters and layered tees. I stay away from anything ultra trendy.

Can you help me find a pair of trendy boots?
Q. Hi there, I'm 21 years old and 24 weeks pregnant. I've always been the kind of girl who has a million pairs of boots over the winter. My only problem is everything I own has a high heel on it!

Being 24 weeks pregnant, it's really not the safest or most comfortable I really need a pair of flat boots to wear with my casual and trendy clothing

I am looking for a pair of black (maybe even brown) knee high flat boots. I prefer leather but will go for suede as well. I don't care for ties on them and I would like them to be under 100 dollars!

Best pick will definitely get 10 points! thank you :)

A. First of all, congratulations on your baby! Okay, I have a few stores that you can look at, and I'll give the websites.





That's all I could find, I'm sure if you keep looking you'll find some. Good luck!

What's a good place to shop for cute, inexpensive young women's clothes in Los Angeles?

Q. I don't like clothes that are overly trendy, but I want to find stuff that's youthful, casual and relatively comfortable without spending too much money. Any suggestions?

A. forever 21, go to the beverly center to the top floor or the grove or santa monica both have one ( also wet seal has some cheap clothing thats pretty cute ( You can try Ross. You can also try Goodwill, they have trendy clothes some even still have the tags on it-the best goodwill i've seen so far is the one on santa monica and stoner ave. Also, Westwood has some clothing stores that are cheap-on westwood blvd across from Bank of America (i forget the names of the store), theres also an excellent bag store right there too and from my experience the price on the tags can be lowered if you act like its too expensive but you really like it, the lady is nice about that. For shoes, i go to Off Broadway on sunset and orange across from In&out-they have a huge selection for discounted prices.

Guys, where are the best places to buy inexpensive sweaters (winter clothing) in Paris, France?
Q. Guys I need your help to find the best clothing stores in Paris where I can buy good quality winter clothing and at the same time not so expensive? I need coat, sweaters and boots...
Going to France for 5 month, and I have to take some summer and winter clothing, but my luggage supposed to be max 22kg/50pounds (obviously not enough for me.) :( So the only option to shop there.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

A. If you're coming from the USA, an extra lugagge is charged $100 ..... Lots cheaper than buying a coat, boots etc.

A good quality coat costs over 800€, unless you buy during the sales. If you absolutely want to buy a coat, boots and clothes in Paris, I suggest going to an outlet, La Vallée Village is at the outskirts of Paris, sells many brands and there's a second shopping centre at the same place, which is not an outlet but sells inexpensive brands and it's quite big.

There's a cheaper outlet, the cheapest though sale some good brands, it's not in Paris, it's in Troyes city, you could also find nice clothes there though for the shoes better go to La Vallée Village.

In La Défense, just outside Paris, tube station La Défense Grande Arche, line 1 or RER A, theres Les 4 Temps shopping centre, it mostly sells inexpensive brands.

Zara is an Spanish chain of fashion stores, trendy and unexpensive, very popular in Paris.

Concerning the sweaters, I reccommend buying cashmere ones at Monoprix supermarkets, good quality, quite warm (cashmere is the warmest wool), they cost just above 100€. I often buy these sweaters and I combine with coats from Armani, Guy Laroche or Max Mara.

Since you'll spend less than 6 months in France, you can benefit from the vat refund, I think it's 12% off.
Mc Arthur Glen outlet and 2 department stores : Printemps and Galeries Lafayette give a 10% reduction card to tourists, simply ask for one at the welcome desk.

What does it mean by tendy night club attire when going to vegas?

Q. I am going to be in vegas in 2 months and wondering what to wear and examples for men and women. Need help with this and lots of ideas especially for men! Thanks

A. Trendy means whatever is most popular at that time. Backwards baseball caps and baggy pants were once trendy for young men but now a lot of clubs frown on that look. Fancy clubs usually have a dress code posted at their entrance and on their web site. When RA was in Luxor, I read their card, it said something about men having to wear a collared shirt, no tennis shoes (sneakers) allowed, no t-shirts, no jeans. Look up the clubs on Google and look for their dress codes.

For example, here's Pure's dress code:

Dress Code:
Casual Chic: Fashionable attire is required. No sports jerseys, tank tops on men, tennis shoes or athletic wear of any kind will be permitted. The dress code is at management's discretion.

What kind of shoes are popular for women and teegnage girls in Sweden?
Q. What is popular in the winter and in the summer?

A. Here is a link to a shoe store in Sweden, even if you can't read Swedish it's easy enough to browse the tabs.

And you can look at what people in Sweden are wearing here:

The styles change every season. People tend to be casual during the day and dress up if they're going out at night. Sneakers are very common in summer (Converse, Adidas, Puma, all the usuals) as well as ballerina slippers and sandals (last year it was the strappy gladiator type). Waterproof boots are sort of a necessity in winter, you'll see very trendy ones in major cities but in rural areas they're often practical rubber ones like wellies. Right now a lot of girls are wearing ankle boots and wedges, some of them open toe. I've also seen a lot of loafers lately.

What dress could compliment my long-torsoed figure?

Q. I'm having a little trouble finding a dress for the upcoming winter formal dance at my high school. I have a long torso, so it's hard to find a dress that doesn't make my legs look like stubs. I also have a curvy figure (skinny stomach, bigger chest and butt), so wearing an a-line dress just makes my butt stick out and draws more attention to my long torso.

What cut would look best on me? (I'm about 5'4").

Any suggestions would be awesome!

A. Try dresses with this type of shape:

Here are just some general tips for girls with long torsos:
Try to elongate your legs

The longer your legs look, the less the observing eye will see any discrepancy or imbalance between legs and torso. Good bets include sporting short hemlines, wearing shoes and tights in the same color range, wearing pants and shoes/boots in the same color range, and trying out a few pairs of platform shoes.

Investigate high waists

High-waisted pants and skirts are an amazing tool for the long-of-torso. Since they end well above your true, natural waistline, they create visual balance along your midsection. Luckily, high waists have been trendy for a couple of years now, so they shouldn’t be too hard to locate!

Belt high, belt wide

Empire waisted dresses and tops are fabulous bets, but you can belt shirts and dresses on your own, too. And when you belt, belt high. You may be belting above the smallest part of your waist/torso, but in doing so, you’ll balance all that length. Utilizing a wide belt will help, too, since skinny belts might actually make your torso look yet longer. The width of the belt will break things up more gracefully. (If you’re a petite woman with a long torso, either stick to belting high or experiment with medium-width belts.)

Girls: What clothing items are essential for the summer?
Q. Also, describe your style if you can. (trendy, reserved, bohemian, earthy, relaxed, classic, edgy, sophisticated, etc.)
Thanks in advance! (:

A. Hmm.

Well in terms of tops, I'd say...

- Tank tops
- Camisoles
- Halter tops
- Blouses
- T-shirts

In terms of bottoms, I'd go...

- Shorts (not too short!)
- Skirts (pencil, A-line, pleated, why not, right?)
- Capris

For shoes, I'd say...

- Flipflops
- Flats
- Sandals

And then just as a side note, you might want to get a...

- Romper
- Sun Dress
- Maxi dress

When it comes to my own style, it will slightly vary depending on my mood and whatnot. I describe my style as modern classy. So, for example, I might tuck a button-up blouse into a pair of skinny jeans and wear flats getting that "classy" kind of look BUT I might change it up by wearing red skinny jeans and maybe even (faux) leather flats. That sort of a thing. Although if I do wear something a little tougher like leather flats, I'll tend to, say, curl my hair so I still give that really feminine vibe.

YOUR clothes, make-up, style to help transform me!?

Q. Hey, im starting out on a transformation tomorrow to have a date by valentines day. I know its important for a guy to like you for who you are, but feeling pretty and attractive is essential too! So...
Cute clothes?

Im always in converse or boots. wear some concealer and mascara. generally tie hair up and am 5''6, 130lb with boobs ..which are much too big if you ask me :(
I also tend to be 'one of the lads' and goof around alot.

***But anyway... I'm interested in who YOU are and what you do to make yourself feel GORGEOUS!***

A. haha. to feel gorgeous i just have to be an outfit that no one else has, with bright pieces and trendy cuts.
for cute clothes i love these stores-
(only really for their extremely bright skinny jeans!)

i like bright skinny jeans and pretty feminine tops. or funky tees. unique retro and mod accessories, big aviators, headbands, clips, anything!

if i do say so myself, im pretty good at doing makeup. haha. i like bright MAC and urban decay colors and liquid colored liners. some foundation, maybe a sheer red lip stain.

my hair is super choppy/layered and dark brown. (used to be pink and blonde) i have thick bangs, that are in between straight across and swept to one side. im growing it long this year.

im really thin and people seem to strive to have my figure. i have no idea why. guys would much prefer to have a curvy woman and i hate my chicken legs! i definately eat more than your average person too. im petite at a teeny 5'1".

well i guess that describes my outward appearance. im crazy at times and love hanging out with guys too.

Can someone check my oral presentation?
Q. Hello! These are some ideas about fashion. Can you check them? Thank you!

Fashion has always been part of our lives, it defines a person and gives identity. You can also tell the personality or the character of someone just by the clothe.

Fashion has been changing for example in the 60s the fashion icon was Twiggy and it was the time of the mini skirt and which was very controversial. The only thing that made the mini skirt acceptable was the introduction of the pantyhose. Women also used to wear sweaters and flatboots.

Then we have the 70s, represented by punk fashion. This style born as an anarchic and aggressive movement. It was cheap clothe and it used to represent the poor and rebel part of society. Self mutilation and body piercings were the hit. The most important thing for punks was the hair.

Fashion in the 80s was influenced by television and series like Dallas and Dinasty. Suits, t-shirts, a lot of make up and jewellry were the accesories that people used to wear. In the 80s the bigger the better especially in hair styles. Strong colors like blue, pink, red and green were trendy. Blouses were base on romantic looks. And of course we cannot forget the shoulder pads.

The 90s was synonim of blue jeans, t-shirts and jackets. It was the time of the grunge were some people wore old t-shirts and dirty jeans. Others try dress like pop stars using colors like black and pink. The new accesory was the mobile phone.

And now fashion in 2010 is represented by different styles. Most people especially teenagers follow some bands and try to dress like them. There are many urban tribus now that create different styles.

Fashion is part of our culture. And we know that culture evolves so does fashion. We all have our particular style but I think the most important thing is be comfortable and feel confident with the clothe that you wear.

A. Unless you're in the UK, I'd disagree with "70s, represented by punk fashion" (punk style did not go mainstream in the US; very few adopted the look).

In the USA, it was bell bottom pants, lots of denim, lots of muted brown/earth tones (suntan was the #1 shade of pantyhose in the 70's). Very little black, no bright colors (except sky blue), wide lapels, collars, and neck ties. Platform dressy sandals, espadrilles, zippered ankle boots.

From the mini-skirt of the early 70's came the ultra backlash: "Maxi" - coats, skirts, and dresses that went all the way down to the ankle. While flesh toned sheer pantyhose ruled leg wear, one could also spot opaque navy blue tights (no other color of tights but navy, unless you were a little girl).

Think disco fashion - shiny silky shirts with dark but bold abstract designs printed on them. Lycra moved from hosiery to ladies pants (Sasson pants advertised "Lycra adds moving comfort"). Clogs for guys and gals, and platform and higher heels for all. Look up "Halston". He was the best most representative fashion designer in the 1970's.

1980's - Don't forget "BIG HAIR" and crimped (crimping iron) hair styles. Also in the early 80's, bright, very bright colors appeared in sheer pantyhose (yes, pantyhose, not the thicker opaque tights). Never before (and not since) had grown women worn such bright colors on their legs for professional and dressy occasions. The pallete of available colors was remarkable. A lady could easily match her pantyhose to her outfit monochromatically. These colors, once only for little girls and brave artistic types went trully mainstream. As the decade wore on, the variety of colors shrunk, the remaining colors became darker and muted, and flesh tones returned into the mix.

Where can I find different coloured shoe laces.?

Q. I live in Canada(British Columbia to be specific) and I wanted to get orange and blue shoelaces for my baby phat shoes and I don't know where to get them. I was thinking Sportchek or Athlete's World or Sportsmart might but I'm not sure. Please help thanks.

A. Do you have Journeys or Hot Topic up there? Journeys is a shoe store, and Hot Topic is a trendy teenager-type store, and they both have tons of different kinds of shoelaces. Have you looked online? Look on Google or Yahoo Shopping, and eBay. Also, I've used different colored ribbons before as shoelaces, check out Craft/Fabric/Hobby Stores

What Food Did People Eat In The 1950's For BreakFast? And What Were Their Standards Of Living?
Q. I Have To Write A Report On the 1950's and i need to know how they lived (average size of house, Cars or no Cars, Etc.) And What They ate, and did for jobs.

A. You need to watch Leave it To Beaver:)

Yes they had cars
They lived in the suburbs in modest size homes 3 bedrooms living room dining room 1 bathroom nice yard with a garage. TV was around the garage door opener had been invented. Dad worked and mom stayed home and had a plate of cookies ready for the kids after school. It was the American Dream time. They had electric washers and dryers.

There were beehive hairdos, nylon stockings, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, denim jeans were becoming popular, leather jackets, letter highschool jackets, scarfs and berets, cats eye glasses, pencil skirts, pony tales with bangs, slicked back hair for guys.

Young people were called youths not teenagers

Music was just beginning to branch into Rock and Roll but there were still people like Perry Como and Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole but there was Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash

There were drive ins, diners, and drive in movies, and soda fountains, and car hops

There was James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando , Tony Curtis, Cary Grant * Charlton Heston, Grace Kelly, Jimmy Stewart, and Elizabeth Taylor in the movies

TV dinners were popular and trendy and acceptable in the 1950's Basically they ate what we eat now. Lots of packaged food started coming out around this time.

Cars were a really big deal they tricked them out and raced them and they were muscle cars and made them cool to the teens
They were status symbols to the grown folk

Where can i find stylish womans shoes in a size 12?

Q. i actually wear a 12.5 but can fit a size twelve, i am 22 and like to dress girly so i like trendy boots and heels (no converse or vans i have a closet full of these brands) i also don't want shoes that my granmother would wear to church. 12 is the absolute smallest I can fit, there is no way i could "squeeze in" to an eleven. please don't list a company unless you're SURE they carry size 12. (alot of places advertise extended sizes but only go up to 11) thank you for your suggestions!!!

A. Size 11 here! barefoot tess has lot of trendy shoes and carry extended sizes for brands like jeffrey campbell and dolce vita . Unfortunately they don't have a lot of 12.5 shoes but they have some really cute size 12's and 13's. carries some nice things too.

How to build a Stylish wardrobe on a budget !!!?
Q. So ive got in a habit of buying plain stuff, like T-shirts and jeans. And either black or white shoes because they go with everything . And I dont have enough money to alot of diffrent shoes . And far as clothes I pick simple tshirts because I feel like really dont ho anywhere fancy .And if I buy something super cute or trendy . 9 times outta 10 .I wont have shoes to wear with it in my closet or any accessories . I wear a size 12 in women and their shoes can be expensive. Im tired of looking dull. How can I build a cute summer wardrobe.

A. You can shop ebay for some cheap but cute clothing.

Otherwise, when you shop for tshirts and plain items, look for things with graphics on the front or go for plain still but bolder colors. You can customise things at home yourself really easily, with tons of ideas on youtube and pintrest. Things like cut outs made into bows, adding ribbons weaved through the fabric to cinch in the waist, tie dying etc.

Folding up your jeans can give you an instantly revamped look, adding studs to leggings, even fabric paint.

Wearing scarves and jewelry pulls together simple outfits really effortlessly.

You can fold up the sleeves on your tshirts for an edgier look, or if you have button up shirts, leave the last couple of buttons undone and tie the shirt in the front.

Have you thought about buying colored blazers or statement jackets, so you don't have to change your wardrobe but have something different to wear with the same outfits?
Things like this are also really cheap and cute, and can be worn tons of ways. You can wear them loose, cinched in with a belt, tucked into jeans and skirts, tied at the front for a cropped look etc

Black skater skirts are good because they look cute, you can tuck shirts/t's into them, they go well with hooded jackets, blazers, cardigans, and pretty much any shoe.

As for shoes, you could opt for colored sandals, black slipper flats, gladiator sandals etc because they work with pretty much anything.

What worse according to you: "Out of style" or "Inappropriate dressed for the occassion"?

Q. Imaging these two sceaniors:
Occasion: Meeting in-laws or family dinner with elders

Girl A) A girl wore a super short skirt + 4" trendy stilettos with a sheer blouse with bandeau top underneath + bright lipstick + flashy juwelry. A person who believe there shouldnt be any dresscodes or "inappropriate wear", that she should flaunt her body and people shouldnt't care about what she wear, that she should be accepted by her personality --- or she wore it because guys "love it".

Girl B) She wore a nice daytime floral dress that are above the knee, pantyhose, dainty jewelry + her mom's old oxford 2" pumps (if you dont know what this is, its men inspired dress shoes with heels) that she love. A person who appreciate vintage and doesnt care much about trend who value comfort over style.

Which girl would you say would dress "inappropriate" for this type of occasion?

and I can admit, I would be girl B. I love vintage and wear it alot. Everytime I ask if an outfit is appropriate or not, for some reason I always get crap about my taste for clothes. That they are not in style, that they are something a mother would wear, that they are stupid, they are not suited for my age (24) etc etc and that I "should" wear stilettos (despite I tell them I've a foot injury) or bodycon mini dresses instead or opt for a t-shirt and jeans look. :S

Why do people mix up "personal style" with dressing "inappropriated/"disrespectful"?
and why does it feels like people care more about what decade the clothes are from, nowadays?
Brian: You missed the point. This question doesnt have anything to do with modesty or inmodesty.
Chris: No, not for attention. I just ask these kind of questions because I find them interesting to ask about... and I like second opinions (to get a different perspective of things). Everytime I try to ask about it with relatives what THEY think, they ignore it and bash me for being childrish. If I go to a chat or forum, they complain about my grammar. So I ask on Y.A instead (but def. need to learn to summarize the details and get straight to the point. ^^;;;).
I'm studying about pshycology and fashion styles in depth daily, since a year, so Im not really a "fashion expert" but might more than the less fashion/appearance interested crowd. My dream is become a stylist.
as for Missed the point = he was more focused about the modesty. I was talking about styles and dresscodes.
A person who dress revealing or a person who wear oldfashioned clothes for something more serious/proffessional - which is worse <--- was my point. lol -.-'

A. I think it's much, much worse to dress inappropriately for the occasion. In your example, girl A is way out of line. That outfit only works in a club.

I feel like the media and celebrities have a lot to do with today's style. A lot of women see how the celebrities dress and want to emulate them, thus creating this craziness.

What is "smart casual" dress for women at a Christmas party for people in mid-twenties?
Q. It is for a class of physical therapy students in graduate school... to get together, have drinks, and play secret santa. What do you think: black pants or jeans?
Girlfriend getting dragged along here...

A. Black slacks for sure. Dress it up with trendy black shoes and a festive top. For guys, an untucked button-down oxford shirt. For girls, maybe something with a little sparkle.

Q. I wear my custom orthodics in my sneakers when possible, but I can't wear sneakers to work or less causal events. Any suggestions on where to find trendy/stylish shoes, sandals, or flats that are reasonably priced?
I need an alternative to sneakers with my custom orthodics. I can't wear sneakers to work.

A. A reputable tennis shoe with good support (leather) is always good. If you do use an orthotic (whether custom- made or store-bought), be sure to take the inlay that comes with the shoe out first.
Also, be sure to do heel stretching exercises.

How can i dress like a preppy girl?
Q. i want to dress preppy now.!any suggestion.!
can you put together a outfit for me?
colors i love-pink,green,yellow
colors i hate-dark purple

A. Personally, I think the best style type is preppy because it is classic and never goes out of style. Here are some basic steps:

1. The attitude: Always present yourself in a nice and welcoming manner. Be polite and courteous with girls, boys, and teachers. Never be snobby and don't try too hard.
2. The clothes: Wear clean cut, classic clothes, but they do not have to be trendy. Places like Abercrombie and Hollister are not preppy, unless you buy the really simple items. Try J.Crew, Lacoste, etc. Wear skirts, khaki, polos, bermuda shorts and bright colors. The staples of the preppy style are oxford shirts, polo shirts, and sweaters/cardigans. anything simple and of a solid color will work! The Jackie Cardigan is also a good, classic choice. Also, try a cute blazer over a simple dress. Also, for jeans, don't have any rips in them. Some good colors for clothes include pastels in pink, blue, green, and yellow or neutrals such as off white and brown.
3. Accessories: Always wear accessories, but not too many. Try pearl jewelry such as pearl studs. Also wear ribbon belts in different colors.
4. Shoes: Clean white tennis shoes are cute, or leather or suede ballet flats. No sneakers or Uggs. If you want boots try leather or suede slouch boots or straight leg boots... classic!
5. Hair: Make sure your hair is always well cleaned and conditioned. Don't do the same thing every day, mix it up! Try ribbons in a ponytail, headbands, and pigtails.
6. Always keep clean: Brush your hair, take care of your teeth, and smell nice.
7. Most importantly.... HAVE CONFIDENCE!!! Focus on your inner beauty and never let anybody tell you who you should be.

If you really want abercrombie... try this:

I hope this helps!

I really want some cool shoes.?

Q. I like green and polka dots, but I'm guessing there are no green polka dot shoes. But i do like green. I want them to be athletic and trendy. I want them to be unique, but not weird. Under $120 please

A. It wouldn't be hard to find some green athletic shoes, but it would be hard to find a polka dot pair. I would check through Converse. They usually have shoes in every color & pattern.

Here are some by Nike, but I'm not sure if they're men or women shoes.

How can I be more like a girly girl and be popular?

Q. You may include:
What sports I can do
what kind of trendy clothes i could wear
how i can be prettier
how I can be convident
how to get a boyfriend
and how I can change my life to be more like a girly girl and lady like.

A. advise:u dont really wanna be i dont wanna sound self centered but im pretty popular, and all my girl friends are so fake and always start gossip but if u really want, which i advise not

hair: just find a color that works with ur skin tone, and have side sweep bangs, not to short either

sports: volleyball and dance in my school

clothes: hollister, aeropostale, hot topic, american eagle, abercrombie, pac sun

shoes: and just show ur style

prettier: eyeliner, mascara (not too much u dont wanna look slutty) use coverup for any acne issues, make sure u shower everyday ha

confident: thats kind of something u have by urself, just realise wen ur done with high school u dont wanna regret anything and just be confident and do anything u want while u still can cause this is your one chance and U CAN DO IT woot woot!!

makeup: eyeliner, mascara work amazingly, and u can use eyeshaddow to bring out ur eyes, but if u use too much of it, or the wrong colors, or for the wrong situation you can look like a serious slut and u dont want that so yea i usually dont use eyeshaddow

boyfriend: boys are over rated, and if ur avalible more guys will pay attention to u cause they still have a chance, but if u want one just pick the guy u like and makes u feel special, and talk to him and flirt, dont be nervous cause who cares wut he thinks if he doesnt like you, but dont be too cocky or annoying or self centered cause ew who likes that, and be yourself!!

and U DONT WANNA CHANGE UR LIFE seriously every girl is perfect how they are and i bet ur really pretty u just dont have that much confedence but you should cause any guy would like u and for real u just have to realise that ur perfect and who cares its just highschool like for real once its over ur not gonna see any of those pps anyway so if u wanna go wild and crazy u might as well, just dont be slutty please!!

but the most important thing ever is to be yourself!

I am a teenage boy and I want my clothing to be cooler. Where should I shop?
Q. I want to be trendy but also look different?

A. how old are you?
personally I like it when a guy weres a mix...ralph lauren, armani, american eagle, abercrombie and fitch, american apparel, and urban outfitters are pretty awesome brands/stores

remember keep it fresh. keep it clean. and NO ONE wants to see what's printed on the back of your boxers...NO ONE!

vests over t-shirts is kinda cool

white V-neck plain t-shirt with nice jeans always looks fresh

scene kid look- colored skinny jeans/ band tees/skater shoes (vans)

you need a pair of converse!
buy 2-3 really cool zip up hoodies from volcom/billabong/vans

pacsun is a really great store

good luck! and feel free to message me with any questions regarding a certain look or style

Thoughts about the woman pulled off the South West Airlines Flight?

Q. I'm curious to hear opinions of the young lady who was pulled off the SouthWest Airlines flight because her outfit was too revealing. The pictures of her, wearing her skirt and top were I thought not out of the norm, she was tall, blonde and a bit busty but nothing at all revearling about her top and her skirt was low to mid thigh. They actually showed some of the older SW Airline flight attendents from the 70's wearing hot pants on CNN today. Curious to hear opinions, because this woman was dressed nicely and I have seen some pretty poorly dressed people not get a second look. Think that jealously had anything to do with it?
I only saw the picture of her that was shown on the media. She looks fine in it and didn't have a tank top on, she had a top and sweater. My understanding was that it was a female passenger who complained after the boarded the plane and that she was given a blanket to cover herself after getting back on.

A. I offer 2 opinions on the topic of personal appearance in public places -

1. Airlines (Buses, Cruise ships, Railroads, etc) have the right to demand certain standards of conduct (or appearance)of passengers, and sometimes enforce that right when passengers or the airline would be harmed. In this case, however, I have heard that another passenger complained to the airline, and caused this situation to arise.
I have no idea what gives one passenger the right to judge the lady's clothing, this seems to be hypocritical and surely could have been resolved by moving the complaining passenger to a seat out of view of the young lady, and offering a blindfold to the complaining passenger.
Since the airline crew now had to intervene quickly, in order to let the flight take off on time, and keep the peace, perhaps it was easiest at the moment to do what SW did, right or wrong. On the other hand (with my perfect hindsight), if I were the air crew, I would have told BOTH passengers to get off and let them battle it out in court for being involved in a dispute of a nature unable to be resolved in a timely manner.

Opinion #2: On personal pride of appearance AND tolerance (or lack of tolerance), what ever happened to these things?
It used to be that far fewer people (slobs, etc) went out in public place dressed badly. I am not talking about dressing in a unique, trendy way, but plain out wearing ragged, dirty smelly clothing, etc. I once sat (in first class cabin, Dallas to London) way too close to a young couple and baby, dressed in worn-out jeans, tattered plain white-T shirts, cheap shower shoes, etc and the toddler wearing only a diaper and some kind of sleeping clothes, barely enough to keep it from catching cold. Granted that your clothing choices can be limited by your income and budget, but if you have the means to fly in first-class cabin to London, surely you could afford to dress better than that? On tolerance, YES, I thought to myself that if I had the power, I would tell that couple to dress more appropriately for the occasion, but of course I realized that I do NOT have that power, so I just kept my mouth shut, put on my headset, listened to the music, and enjoyed the flight.

Ok, open for debate, I would like to read your comments, anyone?

Parents how often do you take your kids shopping?
Q. My parents only take me once or twice a yr to discount thrift stores and i dont complain and i hardly get new shoes i still use mine from 2yrs ago because my mom makes me buy stuff 2 sizes larger so they last long and they do and I dont mind cuz times are tough and i also dont buy accessories unless im given as gifts. So how and how often do you shop for your kids, teens, toddlers, infants ?

A. whenever they need new shoes or when the season changes and they need new clothes. im not a real big shopper but i do shop once in a while especially in the summer time because it be so hot and they always have cute cheap stuff on sale. lol. ross is my favorite store, cheap and trendy.

What are the most popular teen stores right now?

Q. I'm 14 and I need a new wardrobe! I have no style :( What stores are really popular? What types of clothing are "in"? I have about $300 of birthday money to spend. Thanks everybody!!!!!

A. Definitely forever21 for cheap clothes and on trend stuff.
Wetseal is pretty cheap and similar to forever21, and so is Love Culture.
Try nordstrom (rack) for great quality pieces. If you go to a regular nordstrom, though, the stuff is so expensive :o
Free People and Brandy Melville are super popular right now (and they have a lot of "in" stuff), but both are a bit pricier than your typical mall store.
If you are willing to wear second hand clothes, try Plato's Closet - its like a thrift store but a bit more expensive because it only carries brand name clothes that are in trend right now. Its still way cheaper than the original prices even though its more expensive that somewhere like Goodwill or a consignment shop.
Tilly's, Francesca's, Kohl's, Macy's, Charlotte Russe, Aeropostale, delias, Old Navy or Gap, Garage (♥), and Zara are some other places to try.Target has everything - makeup, accessories, school supplies, and clothes so I would recommend at least checking that out. And the prices are really good too!

Clothing trends are:
Jumpers/pullovers are supposedly going to be in for winter, paired with jeans or leggings.
Cardigans are always great :D
Oxblood/burgundy/maroon is the color of this fall/winter so pick up some stuff in that color for this school year. I have a pair of jeans in this color that I love. So soft, and the shade is perfect!
Tribal prints were in for summer and spring, but I think as we transition into fall not many people are going to be wearing tribal prints any more. Same with colored jeans and neon pants.
Flannel and plaid shirts are definitely in. Just button downs in general.
Flowy tops are trendy right now, something like this: I would pair this with a scarf and skinny jeans and any type of shoe as an outfit :D
Peter pan collared tops were in this summer, not sure if they will stay for the whole school year.
Patterned, like floral or polka dotted jeans, are trendy right now. You can get really cute ones at AE.
BLAZERS! Especially for the chilly days in fall, I would get a fitted blazer for school.
Definitely combat boots and riding boots. Furry slippers (like ugg slippers) were in last winter, not sure about 2012. These are the combat boots I really want, but none of the colors are in my size >.<

what are the current trends in clothes shops?
Q. I have a job interview in a clothes shop and was wondering what current fashion trends are.

A. I don't follow women's fashion but I can provide the guys' trends for fall 2012 through summer 2013, or at least how they're predicted to be. This is according to major runway shows in Europe, so trends in American stores or unique shops will vary.

Some general trends: Slim pants/jeans (sometimes skinny), rolled up once or twice, JACKETS, hairstyles that are short on the sides/back and styled on top, accessories like watches and bracelets always make you look more stylish

Fall 2012 has some very light blues and oranges leftover from summer 2012 but they're only thrown in. Mainly, it's getting darker with blacks and grays, occasionally an obscure white or yellow dominated outfit. "A play on fabric" as Armani calls it is trendy, mixing different patterns and fabrics that you wouldn't normally match, as long as they go together in color. Outfits should stay simple and sleek though.

Winter 2012-13 is best described as "dark" and sometimes "tribal" with almost all black, brown and gray on jackets, pants and shoes/belts. Fabric play still revealant: For example, charcoal sweater with leather jacket throw-over.

Spring/summer 2013 should be sleek and include Mediterranean colors not only in just clothes but especially accessories. Like turquoise belts/shoes, bags and shirt accents. "Easter" colors is a good way to put it also. The base colors are blue and green.

How can I avoid looking like an obvious tourist in Italy?
Q. About 11 people from my Italian club (at school) are going to Italy with a tour group called CHA. My Italian teacher, who has organized two trips prior to this one, wants us to wear CHA's backpack when we're over there, in order for her to see us easily. I personally think that it's just going to be an even more obvious indicator that we're tourists, aside from the fact that we'll be traveling in a group...

As far as I know, no one else has had to label themselves a tourist in such a way on her two previous trips. Any suggestions on how I can *try* to convince her to drop the whole "wear the backpack with the obvious CHA label" idea?

Also, for those of you who live, have lived, or have been to Italy in the past, what do they usually wear? I was considering bringing several of my Hollister shirts, plus a few plain (non-labeled) shirts, and jeans. Will this just scream "TOURIST!," or do they have/wear Hollister over there?

Thank you!

A. I am an American who used to live in Italy. Yes, matching backpacks will bring attention to the fact that you are all in a tour group, so if you do end up having to use them, just be careful and pay attention to who is around you. If you are going to be carrying anything valuable in it, you might want to consider buying and using one of those tiny padlocks for travel - that way if someone does have the intention of trying to get into it when you're not watching, they won't be able to.

As for clothing - one thing that usually indicates a tourist is light clothing. Italians tend to wear darker colors. Many American tourists wear pastels and white tennis shoes - easy to pick out in a crowd. Many Italians don't even wear shorts in the summer when out in the towns. Italy does have many trendy shops, but the styles there are somewhat different than what we wear in America. A suggestion is that you take some extra money and purchase a few items of clothing there - you can wear it while there and not look like a tourist, but you can also bring it back here and have something none of your friends will have! Italians also tend to wear clothing tighter than Americans, so just watch the sizing.

With regard to jeans, most American tourists wear jeans - they are not the easiest to find in Italy, but most Italians that I knew there wished they had some!

My overall suggestion: Just wear what you're comfortable in - try to take darker clothing if you don't want to stand out - but remember, this is your vacation and whatever you do, just ENJOY and not worry about what others are thinking.
