vests over t-shirts is kinda cool

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

What are the hottest trends for women this summer?
Q. Whether it's through fashion or beauty
I also bought a few dresses ooff of eBay, can someone help me hook them up, either dress up or down...I'll be leaving to Florida soon, so i want to wear them down there.

A. I hope i answered your question.

Well you cant forget about the neutrels, burmuda shorts, and dont forget the wedge shoes.

Seasonal Color Trends

This season's Spring colors are more subdued and romantic. Powdery pastels in baby blue, apricot, pale yellow, and light shades of green will bring out your feminine side. Paired with classic neutrals such as black, white and taupe, you're sure to find shades that suit you best.

Summer Fabrics

The new Spring and Summer season brings back some great classic fabrics. Now you'll be seeing more light, lacy fabrics and the basic cotton stretch. Spandex-inspired designs offer comfort and versatility that allow women of all shapes and sizes to enjoy. Dresses and skirts in flowing chiffon and silk are sure to please those looking for a feminine, classy look. Great for work and fun!


For those who prefer color, go bright and bold. For style and sophistication, opt for luscious garden prints, retro patterns and black and white geometrical shapes. Many cultures add to ethnic styles with colorful patterns mixed with rich, earth tones.

For a classical look, preppy polo shirts give you stripes galore! The further apart the stripes, the larger you may appear. If you're concerned, choose tops with stripes closer together, with only two colors. Diagonal lines can be rather slimming if they're narrow and meet at the front. Vertical stripes on trousers are a must-have, but only paired with a solid shirt or blouse.

Style Trends

This summer brings some new, exciting fashion trends. With warmer weather moving in, women want simple, feminine styles. Traditional, tailored clothing are classic and will always be a shoe-in for business, weddings, or formal events. Layer your clothing to switch from work to play. Keep your classics cleaned and pressed for impromptu summer events and activities.

Look for denim blue jeans that are cuffed at least 3" deep with sexy, flat sandals. Cool things off with a tank top to expose your shoulders. Don't go light on support, invest in a seasonal bra that has clear or removable straps. Look for tanks and halters that have a built-in bra for style and convenience.

Spring's knee-length skirts flow naturally for eye-catching appeal. Solid colors and subtle designs are more traditional while unique patterns allow us to show personality and pizzazz. Faded denim is always a hit for a rock concert or wild night in the city.

Combine a basic tee, gypsy-style skirt, and flip-flops to gain immediate attention. For a more sophisticated look, pair a great flouney skirt with a stylish tank top. Sandals or wedge shoes in a neutral color compliment most styles and are practical for warmer weather.

Trendy, military inspired clothing shows your support and is an instant hit for casual wear. Take your pick from light cotton cargos, camouflage, walking shorts, and belted jackets. Be creative and accessorize with a belt and dog tags.

Modern Accents and Accessories

The upcoming Spring fashions accentuate unique personalities and bring with it some of Winter's hottest trends in accessories and jewelry.

For necklaces, think layers and match up with funky beads and symbolic pendants.

Bangle bracelets and watches adorned with etchings or glitter.

Toe rings, thumb rings, body jewelry.

Chunky, ethnic pieces. Old fashioned designs.

Sunglasses with oversized frames and lenses.

A flirty sarong for the beach.

Open-backed slides with sequin accents and beads.

Hot Makeup Trends:

What's hot this Summer? Makeup adds definition to the face and this season brings earthy shades with defined cheeks. For those who are a little more conservative, taupe will lift your spirit and look great in pictures. Both peaches and corals radiate a youthful glow -- and can take years off of your face. From eye shadow, cheeks, to lips, pink gives you a healthy look, while underplaying fine lines and wrinkles.

What to wear at the office with a pinstripe suit?

Q. I like dark grey suits with white vertical pinstripes for business wear. I have also worn solid dark blue ones for variety, but I like grey ones better. White broadcloth shirts are most formal, but there may be alternatives that are still sober and dignified. What colors and patterns of shirts and ties do you suggest for my formal business look? How about shoes? For bonus points, what brands and models of watches would you wear with such a business ensemble? It seems that magazines have recommended many tres gauche combos, and celebrities have worn many tasteless ones, so people are confused about proper dress now. Some people who have answered questions in this category have good taste, but some do not.
Doesn't anyone know something about proper dress for business? Surely someone works in a proper and conservative office as I have. I see some people recommending garish and tasteless ensembles, somewhat along the lines of stuff Woody Allen once wore to be ridiculous, but now, other celebrities wear worse stuff and don't know or don't care if it is tasteless.
I want to see what people say about watches. For business, Simple is best, so "Cellinis' are the Rolexes proper to wear with suits. I saw one recently for $3650. My basic dress watches by Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe cost $10,700 to $15,000 now. I have 2 Rolex sports watches. The gold bracelet "OP Datejust" cost $13,150 in 1994. My Breguet "Marine" cost $29,500. The most complicated Rolex is a "Cosmograph Daytona" chronograph. I think a new on in gold costs $19,450. The ultimate single complication is chimes, e.g, a $507,000 Vacheron Constantin "30010" platinum skeleton minute repeater. I have written seeral books about watches. I am working on the 4th edition of "THE COSTLIEST WATCH BRANDS". Rolex places 41st now. In earlier editions, it was 18th to 24th. Breguet was costliest with Patek philippe 2nd, Vacheron constantin 3rd and A. Lange & Sohne 4th. A new brand Richard Mille wins now.
My coloring shows my 2 Cherokee grandmothers, i.e black hair with red highlights (some grey around the ears since age 17), ruddy bronze tanned skin plus brown eyes. when i was age 10, we went to a Cherokee village at the foot of the Smoky mountains. The Indians nearly kept me. Dad was amused. They didn't notice my siblings who have olive skins and medium brown hair. I look Cherokee, but they do not.

A. *laugh*

Ok.. first off, dark grey and white is pretty neutral as it can get. You could pretty much go for most colours, but I'd suggest lighter colours rather than the medim>dark colors. Why? because medium shades might be too intense against the contrast of the dark suit, and dark colored shirts will blend in too much... might make you look too .. dull.

Now, it depends on your skintone what colors look best on you. If you're light skinned, there are certain shades that will bring out your coloring, versus if you were dark or olive skinned. Without your notes on coloring, I can't really suggest any colours or any shades of colors... (example: yellows might make olive skin look too strange and dull, but the light blues/greens will bring olive skintones out) That's not a hard and fast rule because a very pale shade of yellow might look stunning against you, just not a green-yellow or a blue-yellow.. it's all relative in how the light hits your skin and bounces off the suit.

As for shirts/ties.. the general rule is that if your shirt is busy or bright, go for a neutral tie.

example: pinstriped suit, a light green shirt with faint white checks in it (not plaid..please), means you wear a tie that's a light grey/silver to pick up the white in the pinstripe, or even have a tie that's a mix of greens and silvers or a pattern to really bring out the shirt. You can go kind of crazy in terms of slick patterns with the ties (checks, stripes, light dots), but nothing like saxophones or weird babies on the front please... Spend up to about $100/tie, in a neutral silver or offsilver colour and it'll go with pretty much any shirt/suit combo.

As for shoes, if you have cash to blow, go to a high end store like Holt Renfrew in Toronto (depending on where you are, ask a woman..) and get a black and a brown pair of shoes, in real leather that are comfortable, and the same height (so that your pants will hang at the same height each time)

THen you'll need to get your pinstriped suit tailored to fit you perfectly, and to get the tailor to put a proper break in your pants so that they sit well over your new shoes. I like the Gucci loafers for men... if you can't afford high end, go to a place like a department store, or Aldos, or any place that sells trendy but decently done shoes.

The best watch? Rolex of course. Then Gucci or Prada. If you can't afford that, you could even go to Walmart and pick out a gorgeous smoked-grey face watch with a clean, silver band that would look great with your grey pinstriped suit. You can also try Fossil watches for a lower-end alternative that will last almost forever.

Some options for dress watches:

I think you get the idea.

What kind of dress shoes or sandals will look with this dress for an outside wedding?
Q. I'm going to my friends wedding this Saturday and do not know what kind of dress shoes or sandals to wear that day.

Here is the dress:

Links of dress shoes or sandals from target or payless in wide will help out a lot and thank you to everyone who helps out with this one.

A. 1.


3. - for a sexier/elegant look

4. - for a trendy, fashionista look

5. - for a sexier/fun look

6. - to add in some colour to your outfit

7. - also to add in some colour :)

for more comfortable shoes or if it is an outdoor wedding,




there are plenty but, the basic guideline would be to go for shoe colours that are in the dress such as white or tan/beige/nude or pale yellow or pale green. in this case, avoid black as it would look a tad bit awkward with this dress.

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!

is there way to look like ur rich and beautiful without expensive stuff?

Q. i wear hollister and abercrombie

A. dress classic. [rivate school uniforms are perfect examples of this look. use them as inspiration for your daily wardrobe. cardigans, plaid, polo shirts, jumpers, skirts, slacks and shorts. also, for the "old money" look, more vintage style classics will work, like a british style 3-button suit, anything "tweed", etc. fabrics should be strictly organic: wool, nubby, relaxed. no polyester, nothing "shiny". shoes should be leather, understated, and conservative. don't overdo it; try to go for a relaxed look, like you just got back from a week at the family home in kennebunkport. well fitting clothing in relaxed muted colors and maybe a touch of pastel is very old money.

have good hygiene. make sure you always brush your teeth and take a shower. wash your hair and keep it tidy but understated. clean your nails and get manicures at inexpensive nail salons. short tips are really pretty but avoid long nails with bright colors or nail jewels.

keep your face neat and your body well groomed. men should have precise haircuts, and well shaven facial hair. women should have a "tasteful" cut, color and shine in their hair. clear skin, free of acne and well moisturized especially in women of a certain age. hair color should look natural and highlights and lowlights must be natural as if obtained on a visit to the beach house.

slow down your speech, and lower your voice volume. Don't be loud or draw attention to yourself. learn to play golf, tennis and sail, or to ride (horses), even to play polo (if you have the stomach for it). get familiar with english history. groom regularly, nails, body, face and hair. keep clothing neat in appearance (tuck in shirts, wear comfortable fitting not very loose clothing). you must think before you talk, because, as small as this may seem, some people blurt out things that make them seem as if they didn't, and it can hurt you and others.

change the forecast. for women, strapped sandals in winter are alright. for men, sweaters and khaki shorts with casual loafers are okay as long as it's not snowing. the old money crowd does love to layer, so sweaters, overcoats, and similar garb is handy for cooler conditions.

a wealthy woman's makeup is natural with neutral colors, except for red lipstick, the only color in her makeup. her nail polish is a pale white, pink or beige. perfect skin is a rich woman must. never overtan; natural skin color looks much better. no sunspots, so keep on sporting sunscreen, though everyone looks better with a healthy glow.

smell like money. men and women should wear a small amount of an expensive scent. (men- on inner wrist and underneath the jaw line, women- on inner wrist inner elbows and underneath jaw line or behind ears). do not put too much on!

never look at the tag while "shopping" in expensive stores. train yourself not to react to extremely high prices by educating yourself on the ridiculous pricing for designer goods. if you react and make a scene, the other shoppers in the store will think that they are better than/ above you.

watch TV or movies about those with a lot of money. read forbes, barron's, the wall street journal, the new yorker, and the economist.

don't try too hard; subtlety is key. looking like a newly rich person is never a good thing to those who have always had money.

an authentic designer bag or wallet is nice, but go for something a bit bland or obsolete. something that is the "latest fashion" is by definition a trend, which is anathema to the old money crowd. it must be well made and leather even if not designer, go for simplistic designs, such as the LL bean boat & tote or a classic black quilted chanel. nothing avante garde, and nothing that looks like the balenciaga lariat, or the chloe paddington. however, if you're impressing the nouveau riche, "trendy" is pretty much mandatory.

have at least one pair of really decent well made shoes. for men, some very conservative and understated oxfords or loafers. for women, a conservative pump, like the classic chanel pump would be a good choice.

one of the most important things is to try and act normal. people who are not rich, wish they were. people who are rich don't want anyone to know. wear things that are good quality, but do not advertise. if someone is truly wealthy, they will be able to tell. do not act as though you are above normal activities. act rich, walk and speak properly, but when you talk about the subject of yourself or your life, speak about yourself as though you are a normal person.

and remember...
-flashy does not mean wealth, only poor taste.
-speak properly; always mind your grammar.
-use excellent posture, whether you are sitting or standing.
-know your etiquette. read books on the proper use.

hope this helps

Where to buy great office wear?
Q. Alright so I had bought a suit up and a vest. However I want to buy some black skirts and lots of shirts.

I am going to start my alevels and we have to dress formaly.

So, where can I buy long sleeved women shirts at a great price?
List a shop or a website I could buy it from.
Thank you x

A. I'm not sure what alevels are... but I know where to shop!

Forever21 - they have semi-dressy things for very very cheap, thought the quality obviously isn't great.
Old Navy - more plain but still casual business appropriate.
Target - Great stuff, decent price, good shoes... love it.

Moderately priced:
H&M - can be on the cheaper side with some dress shirts at $20 or less, but they also have really nice and cute dresses and blazers.
Express - Great place for fitted shirts that are better in quality.

Banana Republic: Again, some items aren't bad, but generally cost more. A little reserved, but they have high quality basics and although they are pretty, not too trendy.
Thomas Pink shirts - the BEST fitted tailored shirts ever. WAY overpriced, but they fit like a glove!

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.

Anyone know where I can find women's narrow shoes?
Q. Does anyone know of a website where I can find cute, trendy narrow shoes? I've looked at several sites but the only ones I can find are either very old looking or are birkenstocks (ewww!) All the regular size shoes I've tried in a 5 are too wide and gap at the sides.I think I need a size 5AA (narrow). Too small to find in stores. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A. Why don't you try or go to a nearest Nordstrom and have the sales people bring you a pair of shoes that you like in narrow or wide, whichever you need. Most the time they are really good with having different widths for their customers! If not, try the brand "Stuart Witzman" He has very cute but narrow shoes, although they are on the pricier side!

Where can I find information on the company who manufactures Starter sportswear?


A. Nike is the owner and manufacturer on the Starter sportswear line of clothing.

1 Bowerman Dr.
Beaverton, OR 97005-6453

Phone: 503-671-6453
Fax: 503-671-6300

NIKE is the world's #1 shoemaker and controls more than 20% of the US athletic shoe market. The company designs and sells shoes for a variety of sports, including baseball, cheerleading, golf, volleyball, hiking, tennis, and football. NIKE also sells Cole Haan dress and casual shoes and a line of athletic apparel and equipment. In addition, it operates NIKETOWN shoe and sportswear stores, NIKE factory outlets, and NIKE Women shops. NIKE sells its products throughout the US and in about 160 other countries. Nike brand veteran Mark Parker succeeded Bill Perez, who resigned in 2006, as president and CEO.

Image-savvy NIKE sells its products through about 22,000 retail accounts in the US and through independent distributors and licensees in other countries. Subsidiaries include Cole Haan (dress and casual footwear), Bauer NIKE Hockey (hockey equipment), Hurley International (sports apparel for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing), and Converse (classic and retro-style shoes including the Chuck Taylor brand). In 2004 it purchased athletic apparel and footwear makers Official Starter Properties and Official Starter LLC. In late 2004 NIKE bundled the brands into a unit called Exeter Brands Group, based in New York City. The group develops brands in discount retailers, such as Wal-Mart and Target.

The company is rethinking some of its long-standing agreements with retailers, particularly during the retail industry's consolidation push in 2005. As Sears and Kmart begin to polish its own image as a combined entity, NIKE decided effective October 2005 to no longer sell its products in Sears stores nationwide. Sears carries competitor brands: New Balance, Reebok, adidas, and Skechers.

NIKE is keeping its eye on its brands and how customers perceive them -- and on the competition. When adidas-Salomon acquired Reebok in 2006, the deal put the joined companies in a position to compete with longstanding rival NIKE, which has held the top spot in the athletic apparel and footwear markets worldwide for decades.

Looking over its shoulder (striving to maintain its top spot), Nike began actively filing patent lawsuits in 2006 against its competitors, specifically adidas-Salomon. Nike asserts that adidas has used elements of its SHOX cushioning technology in developing the adidas Kevin Garnett and A3 shoes.

NIKE's also honing in on active female customers, particularly in 2005. It became fully committed to women in 2000, when the firm began making its women's shoes using molds made from women's feet. It had been using molds made from a small man's foot. The company followed up by expanding its apparel in fashionable colors and by rolling out trendy low-rise workout pants. Being known as a brand that caters to men (its "Be Like Mike" ad campaign) and as one that supports athletes who take performance and sports seriously, NIKE is focusing more on women who want workout fashion. While NIKE has experienced failed attempts to capture the attention of this target segment, the firm has reworked its organizational, product, and marketing strategy to get there this time around. The plan involves expanding its NIKE Women brand with a catalog and Web site redesign. It also anticipates operating a dozen NIKE Women stores in the US by mid-2006.

Like most clothing and footwear makers, NIKE is vulnerable to the moods of a fickle teen market. In the mid-priced shoe segment, brands such as Skechers have cut into the company's market share. Following the success of NIKE-sponsored golfer Tiger Woods, NIKE has developed a set of golf clubs and unveiled a Tiger Woods apparel line. In addition, the company -- which relies on contract manufacturers -- has taken steps to avoid more criticism of human rights violations in its factories.

In 2004, less than a year after entering the market, NIKE closed all of its Paris operations because of difficulties with its French franchise operator. The closures do not affect NIKE's otherwise healthy European expansion, including store openings in Barcelona, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid, and Milan, among others. The company altered the name of its women's stores, broadening the name from Goddess (taking on the original meaning of "Nike") to NIKE Women.

Co-founder Philip Knight announced in November 2004 he would step down as president and CEO, though he will continue as chairman of the company. Former S.C. Johnson & Son chief William Perez was tapped as Knight's successor but he lasted a year in the top spot. Mark Parker, a longtime Nike brand executive, was named president and CEO in January 2006, when Bill Perez left the company.

What are some easy DIY Halloween costume ideas?
Q. I dont wanna spend 50 dollars on a costume i'm going to be wearing for 5 hours. I wanna have it be something cute and easy and something ppl will be able to recognize because last year i made a wednsday addams costume and someone asked me if i was a pilgrim.

A. I got these ideas from my new Twist magazine so give credit to them:
WITCH: (Bella Thorne shown)
Wear your edgiest black boots or shoes with studs. Cut black construction paper in a semi circle, and roll into a cone for the hat. Cut old leggings up and layer them over tights. Wear an all black top and skirt. Add lace, sequins or ruffles. (optional). Finish with black eye makeup and red lips!!
For a spooky costume like Bella's wear an all black outfit and add a DIY hat.
HIPPIE: (Vanessa Hudgens shown)
Step 1: Braid you hair the night before then take it out for a carefree wavy style. Step 2: Flowers and feathers are musthaves, so wear a floral top and feather accents. Step 3: Denim cutoffs with a little fringe look relaxed. Cut up old jeans if you don't have them already! Step 4: Hippies love natural looking jewelery, so create an anklet made of string. MY TIP: Since it might be cold Haloween night, wear bell bottom jeans instead.
Dress up as a hippie like Vanessa by dipping into your summer wardrobe for lightweight tops and denim shorts.
GEEK: (Fivel Stewart shown)
Pop the lenses out of old sunglasses and tape them in the middle. Pull your hair to one side and tie it up in a side ponytail. Ask your dada for suspenders to complete the dorky look. Knee high socks are the finishing touch, and they'll keep you warm!!
Add mismatched acessories to a tee and oversized shorts (borrow from your bro!) for a geek costume like Fivel Stewart's.
COWGIRL: (my fave!!) (Kylie Jenner shown)
Step 1:Wear dark skinny jeans: they'll tuck easily into boots! Step 2: A plaid shirt tied up or cropped has a Western vibe. Step 3: Cowboy boots are best, but any boots will do! Step 4:Top off your outfit with a hat (preferbaly cowgirl) and leave hair simple.
Turn your fave flannel and basic jeans into a cowgirl costume like Kylie's. Throw some y'alls into your convos to sell it!
'80s GIRL: (Jenna something from Glee shown)
Crimp hair by braiding into small sections overnight, then add a headband!! Layer a leather jacket over your top for an edgy touch. Knee highs in a bright color are an '80s dtaple!! Tuck a neon top into your high waisted shorts.
The 80s were known for bold colors! Try a throwback costume like Jennas by contrasting trendy neon and black pieces.
CAVEGIRL: (Hayley Kiyoko shown)
Step 1: Wear neutral colored sandals-they're the closest thing to bare feet! Step 2:If it's cold, wear nude stockings so your legs still look bare! Step 3: Cavegirls don't have brushes, so tie hair into a messy ponytail on top of your head. MY TIP: Can't believe they forgot to add this but wear an animal print dress too. Add your chunkiest jewerly in bright colors
Embrace your inner-Flintsone like Lemonade Mouth's Hayley Kiyoko! An animal print dress or top is all you need.
Weird that I had that mag and article to help you! LOL. Have fun!! Hope this/I/TWIST helped and good luck. God bless!

How to spread a clothes budget throughout the month?

Q. My parents gave me a clothes budge of $125/month. What is a good way to spread the money throughout the month where I can maybe buy a few clothing items and maybe a pair of shoes per week/every 2 weeks? Also, where can I shop (other than Forever 21 and Marshall's) that's inexpensive but good for teens and has classic/trendy styles.

A. to maximise your spending you should go for a 'capsule' wardrobe. Mix and match gives you more freedom at less expense.
always go for classic good quality which you can dress up or down and you will be surprised how much variation you can get. Serious fashionistas would not be seen dead in a hem that was not turned invisibly - stitched edges are a sign of cheapness. The French and Italian women always dress well - look at their fashion magazines.

What are pretty but inexpensive brands of clothing for young adult women?
Q. I have so many old clothes that I want to donate which came from who knows where. Preferably a brand not as mainstream as Forever 21 and H&M, I know of those places. I live in California if that helps at all.

A. Have you ever tried the more "trendy" thrift stores? Sometimes you can find really good deals there. I live in California too. What's popular here is a store called Buffalo Exchange. I don't know what part of California you are in, but in So-cal there is one in Fullerton. And one in Long Beach. Up north, I only know of one in Berkeley. I know there is many more.
Here's their website:

There is also a store called La Bomba, but that is only in So-Cal I think.

They have really... vintagey Forever 21 looking, but better clothing. Sometimes they are pricey, but it depends on the item of clothing. Jackets are usually the most expensive things in the store. It is a thrift store though, so everything is gently used. Also, if you have old clothes to get rid of, you can take em to Buffalo Exchange. How it works there is a worker will look through your clothes and determine if they want to buy them from you. They are really picky about clothing, but they will buy your clothes if deemed "fashionable" enough for re-sale. It's a really hipstery place, though. They get a little cocky and will totally judge your style.

Also, have you tried Ross? Sometimes, their clothes are just ugly, but you can also find great cheap jeans there, sometimes cute shoes or tops as well.

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.

Where do you buy trendy juniors clothing for tall, athletic girls?
Q. Height is 5'11", Shoe size is 11, Weight is 140-145, Thighs are strong & muscular (hard to find skinny jeans). Inseam is 35 inches. Tiny waist.

Where might a teen go for clothing with this build?

A. I visited Forever 21 for the first time this past weekend; at the location I went to, they had a large sale room organized by small, medium, and large sizes (I'm sure you can find large sizes around the store as well). The large sizes were not plus sizes per se, but were made for a taller, larger built girl. Their clothes are very cute and inexpensive; good luck shopping! <3

What should you say on the phone to a job you applied for to see about your application?

Q. I applied for a job and I want to see what's going on, but I'm not really sure what to say when I call.

A. Persistence and etiquette go a long way in applying for a job.
Give a call and ask to speak to the Human Resource manager or the office manager or owner depending on the type of business.
Be sure to get their name and correct spelling.
If they are unavailable ask as to when they would be.
It is not always advisable to tell the person who you are and the nature of your call because they may be what is referred to as a gate keeper, meaning their job is to screen what is and isn't important and they can be very subjective in their view.
Ask the person in charge if they have received your application and if everything was in order or is there additional information they need.
Inquire as to what the time frame is as to when they plan to finalize a decision.
Tell the person you are looking forward to setting up an interview and thank them for their time.
If you do not have their correct street address and spelling of the name for the person with whom you spoke call back and ask it of the person answering the phone, and or check on line.
Write out a simple thank you card- (you can even pick up packs at a Dollar store or for a few bucks at a retailer)
Your note should read
Dear Mr/Mrs_______
Thank you for taking my call on date_____
It was a pleasure speaking with you.
I look forward to meeting you in person when we schedule an interview.
Telephone #_________
Not those exact words are necessary but a polished cool professional approach.
After your interview be sure to send a second thank you.
It was a pleasure meeting you.
I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with Company name______________, and know I would be an asset to you.
Thank you for taking the time to review my application/resume as well as the interview.
All ways be sure to be polite.
Hold yourself confidently in your body posture, not cocky but assured of yourself.
(Smile, have good eye contact, shake the persons hand, sit up in the chair, speak in clear complete sentences, no snorts, eye rolls or ‘ya sure’, no ticks like tapping, shaking a foot, etc)
Dress professionally.
A clean ironed solid color button down shirt is preferred with a clean properly fitting pair of pants. This works for both men and women in most setting.
Anything baggy, dragging the ground, ripped, see through, to short, showing skin and tattoos is out.
No thong underwear or ones that have a panty line or show though (don’t go without underwear though) or bras that create lines and bulges.
No cloths that are being held together by safety pins, tape or unmatched thread.
If the pants don’t stay around your waist with the shirt tucked in then don’t wear them.
Women can wear the tail of their shirt out if it is presentable.
A simple belt is fine but nothing drastic, like studs and skulls, with chains hanging.
Keep make- up simple and light. Jewelry to a minimum.
Any piercing other then an ear should be taken out.
Hair neat and clean- no spikes, colors or greasy gels.
Shoes should be clean and in good shape- shoe polish can do a lot to dress up worn shoes.
A darker shoe like black or brown is best and not real trendy and chunky.
For a woman a hand bag that is small to medium matching her out fit or black, brown or tan in a simple design is best.
No Gum.
Be sure you have eaten before you go, have brushed your teeth, and have mints in your pocket.
If these clothing choices are not in your closet get them. You can find them even at thrift stores which won't kill your pocket book.
It is best to have two shirts in case you get called back for a second interview.
A rule of thumb is wear the lighter color of shirt first, color can intimidate or give the wrong first impression in an interview.
These may sound silly or simple, but there a lot people passed over for these simple reasons.
Carry a pen and a copy of your resume. If you do not have a resume create one. There are a number of simple templates on line check around like schools and job centers for free help in creating resumes.

why do shoe makers put such big heels on running shoes?
Q. no one runs landing on their heels. don't they know this? while i agree with some of the idea of those knew trendy barefoot glove shoes, i don't imagine ever seeing old people wearing something with such a small amount of padding....and we're all going to get old....i'd like to take precaution to how much impact my feet take.

A. You're better off running barefoot. Your feet take *less* impact if you run barefoot because you don't land on your heels when you run barefoot. Forget the "trendy barefoot glove shoes", though. They're a waste of $$$. Just go barefoot.

Where can i get cute heels or oxford booties?

Q. Hi guys! Im looking for either a heeled bootie (not too high) Oooor some oxford booties :D Also tell me if there are any cute shoes that you think are a must for autumn... NO UGGS. god i hate those things, they look soo stupid. Just tell me something that is fashionable :D

A. I ABSOLUTELY love booties. They're a fashion must-have for every girl to have in her closet - such a statement piece.
Oxfords are a bit more trendier for women, but are especially in style for the next couple of seasons.
You should definitely invest in both pairs! is an online store that carries literally hundreds of pairs of booties and oxfords:
DSW is also a good store to go to. They have many boots and a few oxford heels right now. Designer, but at a discounted price!
Aldo is yet another great store. Right now they have free shipping online. Check it out:

Hope this helps!

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!

Where can i get a pair of denim bib overalls?

Q. I've been looking around for a decent pair for a while and havent had any luck. I'm a size 0-2.

A. Women's Fashion Overalls

Fashion overalls can be more than high-fashion.

Women's fashion overalls can be a little bit overwhelming for fashionable dressers. We sometimes wonder how we can pull off a look that's usually associated with farmers and laborers, but it takes a good eye to pick the right cut to match overalls with stylish heels and accessories. Don't push yourself to hunt out the most fashionable pair of overalls right off the bat, because a relaxed style can be dressed up gorgeously if you know what to do, and those might even replace your jeans if you buy the right pair. Why not test out women's fashion overalls and see why some women will never let them go again?

Why Overalls?

If you love a fashion challenge, overalls are a great pick. You can style them up in a variety of ways, pair them with a number of different top types underneath, and play around with hats, earrings, and shoes to make the look your own. What's even better is their hard-wearing appeal-they won't wear out, and you can wash them as many times as you need to without worrying about damage. Even better than that is their ability to be easily repaired, and their acceptability for many different age groups. Why not wear a pair of fashion overalls?

Buy Women's Fashion Overalls

This list of places to buy women's fashion overalls will help you pick pairs that flatter you best. Many of the stores listed carry certain styles of overalls, so after a few clicks, you'll find that you can identify a few stores that complement your personal style best. After you bookmark your favorites, consider whether or not you'd like to purchase classic or trendy pairs, and then shop away until you find your dream pair of fashionable overalls. Every daring woman should have a pair of overalls like these!

Lucky Brand carries edgy denim overalls in a few different cuts. You can find wide or baggy overalls if you like to wear something that allows your body to move more freely, or you can look for a pair of denim overalls in stretch, so you can wear them tighter to the body. To flatter most frames, purchase a pair of overalls in dark denim.

Shop at Ssense for overalls with a more modern silhouette. You can pull on hipster overalls that are similar to overall jumpsuits or rompers, and you'll be able to purchase ones with more stylized button plackets and pocket accents. Some of the overalls in the pull-on, button-on looks can be worn without a shirt underneath, and have a halter neck instead. If you plan to wear your overalls out at night, this could be the source for you.

Check out Yoox for more traditional style overalls from designer brands. You can get them in a medium wash and a semi-relaxed fit, which looks amazing with wedge heels, or you can also pick up those traditional shape overalls complete with rips and distressing for a "real" look.

Go to Shopbop for denim overalls with longer overall straps, similar to denim jeans with long suspender straps. While most flattering on women with smaller busts, you can experiment with these with the straps hanging down or taken off if you have a larger or fuller figure. Try these particular jean overalls with booties or strappy wedges for a dramatic effect, and don't forget those hoop earrings to complete the look!

Go to Free People for the ultimate in relaxed denim. If you crave comfort and you won't compromise, you'll love their moderately-priced, fashionable overalls in a variety of roomy cuts. Distressing is mandatory, so why not pair these with your favorite well-worn tee?

Shop at Frankie Morello for some of the most creative overalls and jumpsuits you'll see online. Not only can you find extremely fashionable styles, but you can grab them in a bunch of great new colors with a trend-conscious palette.

How do trendy and young French women typically dress?

Q. Just curious and wondering if it's any better than the majority of the people dress in the U.S.

A. I read a book that said the French love to dress their best, not necessarily expensive. It said that they aren't the tee shirt and gym shoes type like we typically are. They maintain a clean look even when "hanging out" somewhere casual, think the preppy end of H & M line or Burberry. And the main thing is they are confident in whatever they wear, making sure to wear what makes them feel extra good about themselves, and that's what shows.
As far as naming specific brands I can't say, but it seems they like good quality clothes that last.

What is the one thing every fashion foward girl should have in her closet?
Q. What do you think every young (teenage-20s) girl should have in her closet? Ex. White shirt, black bag, pair of flats...
No more Uggs please! i hate those shoes.

A. As a woman in my early 20s, I feel that I need classy pieces that transcend seasons and stay classic forever.
For example, button-down shirts/blouses, jeans that aren't too trendy (by that, I mean classic cuts and styles), trousers that are straight leg in neutral colors (black, gray, tan, brown, even some pinstriped), fitted blazers and other structured jackets, pencil skirts, a-line skirts, 3/4 length sleeved tops (can be v-necked, wrap tops, etc), wrap dresses, pea coats or trenches.

Accessories are where you can have inexpensive fun with chunky, long, beaded necklaces, dangley earrings, scarves, belts, etc.

Also, be aware when choosing color. Bright colors are great, but sometimes jewel-toned shades are more sophisticated. Having said that, color can be great to add some flair to an otherwise neutral and drab wardrobe.
Fit is important. In a classic look, it seems that nothing is ever too tight or baggy.

As for shoes, I love flats, but I also feel that having at least 1-2 pairs of pumps (like in a neutral color, black or brown) is important. Also, boots are great for fall and winter whether they're flat or heeled. If you love color, invest in some bright shoes, such as a pair of red pumps. It can be a great signature look IF that's your kind of thing.

Having said all that, you can easily fit trendy pieces from every season into that.

What is the best running shoe for me?

Q. I am a new at running and I have been training for a 5K in May. My dad recommended that I get real running shoes soon. I have done the research, but I can't find anything that helps. I know I have to decide what feels best for me, but I want to have an idea of what to look for when I get to the store. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

A. There is no real correct answer to that question as it ultimately is what feels right to you. I would highly recommend getting a quality pair of training shoes designed for distance running. Most runners in our program seem to prefer Asics or New Balance but there are several other quality companies to chose from. My best advice is to not cut corners, buy the best shoes you can afford. Stay away from cheap shoes or trendy ones. Your running success depends on your feet and they depend on the shoes. Many stores that specialize in sporting goods have runners working in the shoe departments that can help you and some really good places will actually test you for pronation problems.

What are some things that I can do to become more fashion forward?
Q. I am thinking about taking a job at a salon as receptionist but here's the problem, my look is casual! What are things that I can do to look cute and trendy without looking like I am try to hard. I need Ideas for nails, shoes, perfumes, and accessories, and clothing but all clothes have to be black.

A. To be a receptionist, you have to WOW them with your skills, not your look- but how your high your Hygiene is is definatly important!
a WEEK before you go for a job intervue:
-get a classic neon colored streak through your bangs, red, purple, teal, lime green, orange, yellow, pink- do what does with your hair color and most outfits.
- Have your split ends snipped off by a professionel.
- if you have alot of money, get a pedicure and manicure to match your streak. RED and ORANGE look vibrant and energetic. BLUE and TEAL is proven to make people more open-minded.
a NIGHT before your big day-
-Use a mask on your face and feet.
-Wash hair throughly and use conditioner.
-Pick out an outfit for tommorow- something that matches your streak. Add a necklace and earings, no bangles.
The morning of-
-wash hair again, style as usaul
-Add some sunsilk defrizz 24/7 creme for curly/wavy hair, (dry) or flat marvel by goldwell for straight/limp hair. work some herbal essences totally twisted mousse through damp curly hair, and herbal essennces body envy volumizing mousse to limp hair. let air dry. goof luck- and remember- look 'YOU'!!
good luck!

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.)

Can i get advice for how to dress cool without buying expensive cloths?
Q. can i get advice for how to dress my best(i'm a girl) and i don't want to spend alot

A. Observe what expensive clothes look like and observe how well-dressed people put together their clothes. The key to looking expensive without being expensive is to understand that luxury lies in the lack of vulgarity. No I don't mean vulgarity as in words like f***. Pardon me. But vulgarity as in excessive and ugly decorations/elements in clothes.

Study the trends. For example, gladiator sandals are very popular right now. There is always some high-street/cheaper brand like topshop/forever 21 that copies these trends and come up with less expensive versions of the runway. Another alternative is to buy sandals that are *similar* to a gladiator, strappy, but not a gladiator. Just similar. This way, once gladiators go out of fashion, you still have some very nice sandals and people can't accuse you of being trendy/passe. And they're several hundred dollars cheaper than the runway versh! yay!

Another way is to buy items that are very timeless and will never go out of fashion. A nice white blouse, nice straight-cut jeans in a dark denim, basic black pumps, a nice jacket, a nice bag. All these things will ensure you look put-together always.

The most important thing is to dress for your body type. People often make the mistake of wearing what is not flattering for their bodies. Find your own style and find out what suits your body. When a skinny woman wears a baggy tunic, she'll look overwhelmed, but put her in a tube dress and she'll look good. It's that sort of thing. Always dress for your body shape but with your own tastes and style included. This will result in a look that is yours alone and which no one else has.

Forever 21 is the place for you. They have certain items that are pretty nice and it's all cheap cheap cheap.

Good outfit from forever 21:
Bad Outfit from forever 21:

See how both outfits can be cheap but one is totally BLAH and one is like, HOT DAMN!! Find your own flavour and inject it into your dressing. I hope I've helped a little. Good luck girl! :)

Oh, and always wear a little make-up, keep your hair out of your face, shave your legs/underarms and keep your nails clean&neat. :D Always works.

What would be appropriate attire for a middle-aged woman to wear to relative's wedding?

Q. My aunt told me my cousin is engaged and the wedding will likely be late summer or early autumn. I assume I will be invited, but I don't know if it will be formal or casual. I don't own any really "dress-up" clothes. The best thing I have right now is a pair of jeans with no holes or tears and a scrub-type top with butterflies on it. Getting me to dress-up is like getting Peppermint Patty to wear a dress. Any suggestions?

A. Arg - Middle age - That's me and it's tough to go shopping, isn't it? You don't want to wear something too young and trendy and end up looking like a "Real Housewife", yet you don't want to look like an old lady wearing Sag Harbor, either. You also want to wear something that you would wear again. Every woman should have a few good staples in her wardrobe. For example, a little black dress. Once you have one, you'll find yourself wearing it all the time.

You can't go wrong with the LBD:

OR something pretty like this:

IF you can't hang with the dress idea, consider a pretty pants suit with a colorful top:

What types of footwear looks well with an abaya in a school setting?
Q. For those who're wondering: The abaya is a huge long length dress like a cloak that covers the whole body including arms and legs. They are made out of silk/cotton and worn over Muslim womens' normal dresses.

Now sneakers/runnign shoes don't look at all good with an abaya, so what would do?

A. Hi :)

with an abaya, focus on the color.. If your Abaya is black you can wear black shoes or funky colors that match the scarf, the purse and your accessories

as to what shoes.. during the summer/ warm days :

- Flats (so cute with the abaya)

- Flip flops.. just chose a decent model, I hate it when girls come to the university with beach slippers and call that flip flops.. or any flat open sandals..
Go crazy with the nail polish color and match to the accessories ;) . Revlon and may other brands offer those polishes that you put on and take off by peeling them. Quick and easy
- If you're not afraid of high heels, they can be very feminine especially with a black abaya.. They take it to a hole new level.
- Sneakers are fine but I I don't like them on abaya. I think they can do with a funky outfit, like a colored scarf, and a long sweater and pants (in a neutral color then you match the sneakers to the scarf for example.

For cold days, it gets harder because the abaya is especially designed for the desert and hot weather.. If you insist on wearing the abaya, chose a thick material to match the winter shoes. Wear them with ankle boots (very trendy this fall)

All the best honey ;) XoxO

How can I dress better without looking like a tool?

Q. I've never taken a deep plunge into fashion, so going all out with the latest would not be in my character. I'll wear skinny jeans, but scarves seem awkward if not for cold weather. I don't really understand how to use accessories, or colors, or matching. I'm also short, so any advice on short guys dressing trendy would be greatly appreciated.

A. shirts = plain white tees, graphic tees (no logos if possible), & the occasional abercrombie shirt (dont overdo it tho, or you'll look like a douchebag!)

jeans = anything! guys can pull off virtually any style, so dont limit yourself. heres some inspiration: -skinny jeans are tricky to pull off, so try on a lot of styles before you buy

NO fashion scarfs! please leave those to women

shoes = you can go with skater vans:

the universally loved converse: (high or low tops)

or (depending on the occasion) a flip flop:

for hoodies and jackets, there are many looks you can go with.

skater = vans, element, fox (you can buy these brands at Pacsun)

beachy-casual = abercrombie, hollister, aeropostle

preppy = the gap

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 could I wear to make my torso and/or legs longer?

Q. I'm short and I don't want to look all squished together
btw I'm 15

I have the pointy heels :)

A. From Your Feet Up:

One way to elevate your stature is by wearing height-increasing footwear or apparatuses such as lifts, thicker insoles, elevator shoes, and shoes with thicker soles. These can all easily add a few inches to your height.

Shopping tip: When shopping for shoes, try sticking to bulkier styles so that your feet don't look too small.

Avoid wearing blazers and cardigans with more than three buttons because they will draw unwanted attention to your shorter upper body. Also, make sure that your blazers and jackets fall slightly below your buttocks, as this will make your body look slightly more elongated. While you should try to avoid double-breasted suits, if you do choose to wear one, do up all the buttons (including the lower ones), as this will give you a longer look.

Also, when wearing a sports jacket, make sure there's as little contrast between your jacket and trousers as possible, to maintain the natural vertical lines. Center and side vents also add the effect of a prolonged vertical line.

In terms of sweaters and T-shirts, V-necks can help make your torso look longer. Turtlenecks, on the other hand, can make you look stumpy, as they conceal your neck.

Look for formfitting shirts in order to avoid excess fabric when tucking them in and opt for point collars instead of spreads. Finally, keep in mind that tucking in your shirt can place the emphasis on your legs and torso, which might make you look shorter.

Shopping tip: Shortening the length of a shirt is generally easier than reducing the length of its sleeves, so make sure the shirt fits properly around your shoulders and body, first and foremost. If it does, then you can have the overall length and the sleeves adjusted.

Do not wear your pants too high; you should wear them just above your hips. Also, avoid wearing low-rise pants (even if they are the trendier alternative), as they tend to make legs look shorter than they already are.

Furthermore, avoid any kind of puckering around the hips, from tucking in your shirts or having full pockets, as it will make you look wider and hence, shorter.

Your trousers should break on your shoes slightly more than average, to help make your legs look longer by covering your socks properly.

It's also suggested to shun cuffs altogether. If you do decide to wear them, have your tailor hem them slightly more narrow than normal (that is, 1¼ inches instead of the usual 1½ to 2 inches). Finally, keep in mind that pants with no pleats or a single pleat are more flattering than multiple pleats.

Shopping tip: If you can't find any pants that fit properly, you can always have them custom-made or visit a specialty store near you.

When it comes to accessories, shorter men should avoid bow ties. Instead, they should wear narrower ties; solid, and regimental and diagonal patterns work best. Also, choose the less intrusive four-in-hand knot over the bulkier Windsor variety.

When buying a belt, remember that you can have it adjusted to any length by simply adding more holes. A belt that doesn't have holes is even easier, as it's fully adjustable for a perfect fit.

Finally, keep in mind that suspenders can emphasize your natural vertical line, so avoid them.

Shopping tip: Again, you can find many stylish accessories in special catalogs, at local specialty stores, or in the boys' section of larger department stores. If you're having trouble finding socks that fit, you can always give the socks in the women's department a try.

Just Look Good!

Just remember that the key is not necessarily to look as tall you can, but to look as good as you can. The proper fit and the right styles can make you look great, regardless of your height.

Why do people not like to socialise with me?
Q. Hi,

Im a nerdy 16 year old with average looks and glasses. Im a bit shy and quiet. However Im not the worst case. I have different interests from other kids. I never get invited to socials or parties. What can I do to change this.


A. What does nerdy mean? The classic look that includes pocket protector, incredibly ugly and ill fitting cloths - heavy on the plaid, greasy Einsteinian hair, and - the cream de la cream - toilet paper trailing from a shoe. What do these mean about a person? What they mean is the person is in a state of learned helplessness in terms of social approval. Its awfully easy to comb and wash your hair and pull the toilet paper from the bottom of your shoe. But why bother the person knows that wont make any difference because the tougher skills of social interaction aren't there.

Your first obvious problem is that you think your problems have to do with rather superficial things about you. They are much more likely in the realm of skills you lack. Shy quite people can be very popular if they know the art of being approachable. When others approach you what do they get? The only clue you have given to that is the comment about different interests. High school, a socially awkward, problematic, and hostile environment for many reasons but on of the big ones is the identity crisis. Everyone is defining themselves and often in rather shallow terms of narrow interests. This age is characterized by hostility to anything that threatens the emerging self identity. At the same time young people are yearning for others who share their interests to bolster their own sense of identity and belonging. This can lead to activities comparable to missionary proselytizing and crusades/jehads.

What to do:

Ask yourself: How can I be more approachable? Open postures, friendly expressions and yes even grooming are important here. Now with grooming it is not nearly as important that you look trendy as you don't stink and show an attention to detail. If you look unusual but clearly you spent some effort looking that way it comes off as interesting.

Then ask yourself: How can I reward others for approaching me? Do I get uncomfortable and make them uncomfortable? Do I ask about them and show interest in what they are interested in? Don't ask if they have a collection of microscope slides right off. It is rude to ask people to rule themselves out as your friends first thing. You may be yearning for some one to share your fascination for 100 year old electrical motors and ham radio but start out with the most likely common interests and try not to show disappointment if they say no about something. Try to show interest in what they are interested in. You want to get invited to parties? This means that you need to do well at the acquaintance level. Patronize the narcissistic jocks you don't need them to be your BFF's but you do want them to enjoy your passing company enough to invite you to the party. Everyone's favorite subject is - themselves.

There are times to be rude. It is important to demand respect. When disrespected show fierce defense of your own pride. Show others you are worth respect because you respect yourself. Demand apologize and accept them when offered. It backfires every time to be so desperate for the approval of others that you will put up with abuse in hopes of acceptance. No - you don't have to fight back physically simply show disdain and withhold your own affection until they show respect. Demanding apologies is an invitation to repair a relationship. Do so strongly but with a measure of kindness. Everyone wipes their feet on doormats and leaves them outside for the party.
