Clothes to Keep, What to Toss


There are a batch of tendencies floating around, and some of their staying powerfulness is surprising. Like leggings. They look good on virtually no 1 and yet the tendency have persevered despite much recoil and skepticism. How can a style that so blatantly accentuates the calf and phone calls attending to ankle joints and the true tallness of the norm American adult female have got endured for this long? Finally, the end is near my friends.

At a recent manner show in Las Vegas Iodine was pleased to see that footless legins were not making the springtime and summertime '08 collections. Any legins I saw were available lone for contiguous shipping. My appraisal was validated in the autumn particular issue of InStyle Makeover (see page 34). So ladies, if you loved this style or just caved in to peer pressure level and now ain a pair, looks like you establish a new exercise outfit or weekend picture grubs.

Skull motifs

Goodbye my dark menace! I never understood the entreaty of the skull motif ... I think it made people experience high-strung or rebellious or whatever. But after winter, Mr. Skull and Crossbones is owed across the River Styx.


While I acknowledge some women (e.g. tall women) expression great in flats, I myself have got bought into the tendency out of comfort. After wearing 4 inch heels for old age regardless of what I was doing, I've establish that flats could salvage me from a very painful old age. I still experience like a kid when I have got on them and I in no manner feel sexy, but I have establish respective cunning brace that make the occupation when agonizing hurting is not an option (like these. Regardless of my personal feelings, it looks like flats are in it for the long haul.

The swing coat

New on the scene for fall/winter is another tendency I don't understand. Even tall women look like oompaloompas in the swing coat. But to each her own. In my low opinion, this expression is better served with a nice belt. Just catch one of the broad belts (which are still in contrary to rumors) and girth that bad boy.

The statement coat

This is a merriment trend. Go ahead and do a statement with a bold bluish or greenish coat. Houndstooth is also hot right now. You'll also see Ag but personally I don't desire to look like a giant piece of Sn foil walking down the street.

Ankle boots (aka booties)

In! And give thanks goodness because I have got three pair! Wear them with wide-leg jeans, skinny jeans, or hedges with leotards (just not footless leotards ... enough already).

Over the knee joint boots

Out sista. If you're not Julia Roberts, it's clock to tin the Hooker boots.

Sweater bags

Say adieu to this sloppy, Gypsy trend. Structured bags are hotter than ever but don't worry misses who like slouchy bags, those are in too. Just be prepared for some heavy-duty hardware.

Gaucho pants

News Flash: this tendency is dead.

Skinny jeans

I resisted at first but have got come up to accept that skinny blue blue jeans aren't going anywhere, any clip soon.

Wide leg pants

They've been creeping up and I'm not happy about it! Wide-leg full-dress trousers look great on taller women. United States shorter gallons have got some options unfastened to us. Trouser jean is one manner to have on this tendency (Level 99 Jean do a nice pair). The expression will force on to Spring. Higher waists are also in but thankfully interior designers recognize not all women can have on this trend.

Cropped Jackets

There are two sides to this trend. There's the swinging cropped jacket and the fitted harvest jacket. I'm inclined to wish the latter. Not certain too many women who desire to do the top halves of their organic structures expression like a mushroom top but I have got seen rare cases where the look works.

Patent leather

Still holding strong! And now there are even bolder colors. So have got fun!


Still around. Silver especially is hot, hot, hot!

Detailed blouses

In improver to tunics, I saw a batch of elaborate blice at the show. I love the look. It's feminine and confident.
