Style tip?  Headbands are all the rage, and you can find some pretty nifty styles at great prices.  The only downside is that an uncomfortable (read: too tight) headband can give you a headache.   Check out our Q&A about How to Wear a Headband for headband tips and tricks…and where to find a comfortable one.

What do you think?  Would you wear a headband?  And if so, with what?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

You Said: Leggings are In and Out!

Omiru Poll Result: Leggings are In and Out


BP Jersey Leggings

We asked: Are Leggings In or Out?

You said:  In…and Out.  You were divided 50-50 on Leggings.

Style tip? 
While the 80s t-shirt and leggings look is (or should be, IMHO) Out, leggings can be tastefully worn layered under skirts and dresses.  Sure helps to beat the cold, especially if you’re spending any amount of time outdoors.  In any case, leggings are all over the Fall 2008 runways…so they’re not going anywhere soon.

Next question: Teal, a gorgeous jewel tone, is showing up all over the runways at New York Fashion Week.  Would you wear teal? Cast your

Style tip?  Half sleeves help to camouflage heavy arms–and can make your upper body look longer and leaner.

Style tip?  The head-to-toe monochromatic look of the jumpsuit visually elongates the body, making you look taller.

Teal at BCBG, Costello Tagliapietra, and Reyes.


Style tip? 
This jewel tone looks great on fair skin tones and dark skin tones alike.  What colors should you pair teal with?  Try navy or green for a thoroughly cool look, or warm up the teal with brown (as seen at BCBG).

Fall 2008 Fashion Week Trend: Sequins and Shine

Shine at Rag & Bone, Abaete, and Yigal Azrouel.


Style tip? 
Shiny fabrics tend to visually enlarge the figure, so wear accordingly.  Runway models (and those with slender figures) can get away with allover shine, but the rest of us should restrict shine to a single part of our outfits.  If you love your legs, for example, you can draw attention towards them with a shiny skirt. 

If you do dare to wear a shiny dress, though, it doesn’t hurt to try a tummy tucker underneath.  Tummy tuckers, like the ones made by Spanx, smooth out any figure bumps and blemishes and prevent them from being spotlighted by the shine.

What do you think?  Would you wear sequins and shine?  And if so, with what?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
