You Said: The Color Teal is In!

Omiru Poll Result: Bright Yellow is In!


BCBG Tie Front Charmeuse Blouse in Teal

We asked: Is The Color Teal In or Out?

You said:  In, with an overwhelming 78% of the vote!

Style tip?  Beat the winter blues with jewel tones, like this marvelously flattering teal blouse from BCBG.  Add a bright yellow bag for an extra punch of style.   Want more teal inspiration?   Check out Teal at Fashion Week Fall 2008.

Next question: Out of all of our Fashion Week Fall 2008 trends, the one that caused the most controversy was The Jumpsuit.  Would you wear it, or would you leave it on the rack? Cast your

Cinched Waist Looks at Verrier, Diane von Furstenberg, and BCBG.


Style tip?  You can visually create curves where you don’t have any with a belt–wide or thin.  And if you are already blessed with curves, you can accentuate them with a belt.


What do you think?  Would you wear a cinched waist outfit?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
