Trends to Try for the Upcoming Winter Season

Winter BluesThere are many people who are willing to look fashionable but are sometimes at a loss as to how to do this. For instance, most people often have a very difficult time figuring out what kind of clothes to wear during winter.

How to Wear the Trend: Camo

9:54 AM

In the past, most of us reserved camouflage for real, mean, hide-in-the-forest type bustle. And for the brave who rocked it, they infiltrated the military thrift stores and made their own anti-society fashion mark on the world, sometimes alone. We looked at them and thought, man they must be a tough cookie, because if they walk into a dark forest they might just disappear…and then what?

Those days are over. No one will think you’re GI-Woman come to life. But you can be — dare I say it — trendy. Top designers like Phillip Lim, DKNY, Equipment and even Manolo Blahnik have taken this otherwise brute feeling pattern and made it high-fashion and all over the streets of style. The colors are always neutral in nature, ranging from green to khaki, with subtle hints of grey. For the bolder, you’ll see movement into the reds and blues, the special forces of high fashion camo.

So now that you can buy it from SINGER22, how do you wear this pattern? It’s neutral in color and yet so bold in nature, which makes it hard for a lot of us to wrap our heads around how to make it good. Follow some key guidelines: (more…)

10 Hats to Keep You Looking Cool (If You’re Losing Your Hair)

10:00 AM

Eugenia Kim Disclaimer: This post is not meant to be offensive. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with cancer.

I went through a strange roller coaster of emotion. Another close friend (who I will refer to as ‘the informer’) was the one who shared the news with me.  On a regular night out I received text messages from her reading: “When was the last time you talked to so and so? I don’t know what to say….” Of course my immediate assumption was: “DEATH! He died! Omg omg omg why??! No this can’t be!” (more…)

Make Sure You’re Wearing Your Leggings the Right Way

10:50 AM

We love leggings, jeggings, and all that stretchy goodness. They’re far more comfortable than any pair of those constricting skinny jeans that we have been magically able to squeeze into. Sometimes not so gracefully with the classic wide leg squat and jump, with fingers gripping  belt loops upward for dear life maneuver, wondering when would be the day we’d rip one off. Then we’d disguise muffin tops and became pros at sucking in our gut that it became second nature and we actually convinced ourselves we were that skinny. That is, until we got home peeled our jeans off and caught a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror as we exhaled. Ugh. (more…)
