Trendscape: Kimono Styles: High to Low

The centuries-old Japanese kimono has undergone a major transformation, courtesy of fashion houses worldwide. The very contemporary result: an airy, flowy top that reveals just enough (usually with a low V-cut) but not too much (the length is still tunic or longer). These tops–shown here at every price range–are perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans, or wearing alone as a dress to go out.

W.W.C.N.D.?

What Would Chris Norris Do TeePay long-due respect to the world’s (okay, TV’s) greatest hero by wearing this shirt, which I found on my new favorite site, ChuckNorrisFacts.com. There, you can also find all-too-true statements such as, "If you spell Chuck Norris in Scrabble, you win. Forever."
(Shirt also available in other styles and colors.)
