As a busy mom, it’s easy to fall into a style rut when you’re juggling so many different schedules. Fortunately, you can dress up any outfit, from jeans and a tee to a comfy cotton dress with the AE Women's Tweed Blazer. Its military-inspired styling is so on-trend for fall, while the textured fabrication and sleek lines evoke the classics.
I look for both function and style when shopping for a back-to-school coat, and this sweetly chic Lands’ End Girls’ Luxe Rain Trench Coat fits the bill. Its highly water-resistant shell and soft inner lining will keep her comfy in any type of weather, while the dusty pink hue and sophisticated styling will make her the talk of the schoolyard.
Teens love hoodies. They're also never caught without a music player or phone. So is it any surprise that they can now fuse the two with INSOUND Hoodies and Jackets? Each style features headphones embedded in the drawstrings and built-in jacks that connect to any phone or music player. And a patent-pending design means these garments are machine washable!
I've written about hats that offer sun protection, but there's also clothing out there that offers protection for the rest of your body. This Coolibar UPF 50+ Women's Sun Protective Wrap is both beautiful and functional. The wrap features ZnO SUNTECT®, which embeds millions of tiny particles of zinc oxide into every fiber and cannot be washed or worn out for long-lasting sun protection. It's perfect for throwing on while watching the kids play... more
So your little may not be old enough to appreciate Johnny Cash, but the other kids in the crib won't mess with him or her when wearing this Johnny Cash Folsom Prison Onesie. This homage to the Man in Black is made of 100 percent pre-shrunk cotton and features a vintage Folsom Prison logo from 1968. The black and white striped onesie is officially licensed. It also makes the perfect baby gift for any... more
Ladies, you know how it is: you buy a fabulous pair of flats only to find that your favorite jeans are way too long. But very few of us can afford to buy multiple pairs of jeans and have them tailored to go with each style of shoe in our closet. Thankfully, you don't have to with these genius little snaps. Hemming MyWay includes reusable hem adjusters that work on jeans, trousers, shirts, or... more
It's hard being "green" when you're the parent of a small child. The amount of diapers one child goes through alone can easily fill up a landfill. Multiply that by millions, and well, we've got a problem. That's why we decided to switch to a cloth diaper. This FuzziBunz Onesize Cloth Diaper keeps our little one's bottom nice and dry. The adjustable waistband grows with your child so you don't have to replace it,... more
We hate to iron and try to avoid it at all costs, but sometimes you have to break out the iron and ironing board to take care of a few wrinkles. This Rowenta Professional DX8800 Iron with Auto Shut-off makes the whole process much easier and quicker. The iron offers a soft-grip handle, and stainless steel soleplate that produces just the right amount of steam to take care of those stubborn wrinkles and creases.
In the midst of this season's vibrant colors and busy prints, white still remains hot this summer. Celebrities have been sporting white dresses, oxford shirts, and pant suits. But for us, a simple white blazer is the perfect way to brighten up a dress, a pair of jeans, or a pair of trousers for work. Whether you stick with a classic, three-quarter-sleeve shape, or a trendier, broad-shouldered look, you'll find tons of versatility with... more
Time to get out the chest wax, guys. Deep v-neck tees are in this season. Designers such as Burberry, and Salvatore Ferragamo showcased both t-shirts and cardigans with plunging necklines, and without anything underneath, mind you. The v-neck tee can be worn with shorts or pants for a casual, but modern look. If you're not too keen on baring most of your chest, you can achieve a similar look with a tee that offers... more
We've seen them on all the celebrities this season. The plaid shirt has officially made a comeback. Paying homage to the flannel shirts of the early 90's, today's plaid shirt is worn untucked and with the sleeves rolled up for a more casual, unkempt feel. The fit is a little more oversized than we're used to, so stick to a slim-fitting pant, like a skinny jean, to balance out the whole look.
When it comes to pants, there are more varieties to choose from this season that will appeal to almost every body shape and size. The extra-wide-leg trouser is a nice reprieve from the skinny pant trend that has been so popular the past few seasons. Look for brighter colors and lighter fabrics for spring. And don't forget to pair the pant with a slim-fitting top to balance out the whole look. Perfect for work... more
Eddie Bauer clothes make us think of people who probably have a cabin in the woods and "get out of the city" as often as they can. We mention the store because some of you may not be ready to ante up for Prada. How do the two relate? Designer Miuccia Prada revealed her fall 2009 ready-to-wear collection on March 1st. According to a Fashion Wire Daily article, the designer said that the fall... more
The one-shoulder trend is a great way to show a little skin without feeling over-exposed. Designers such as Calvin Klein and Alexander McQueen embraced the trend for their spring 2009 collections, showcasing one-shouldered mini-dresses and gowns. But the same look translates well off the runway. One-shouldered tops and tunic dresses are a great way to spice up your wardrobe. And just in time for spring break, one-shouldered swimsuits will keep you feeling sexy and... more
For this spring's fashion trends, think "Working Girl" because it's all business and all 80's. The blazer is replacing last year's bolero as the must-have jacket of the season. But don't start pulling those boxy, wide-shouldered blazers out of your attic just yet. The modern blazer still sports the same strong shoulder, but has a much closer fit to the body. Paired with a modern pant or a floral print dress, the blazer is... more
Women's fashion these days is all over the place. One big trend right now is tunics (are they long shirts? short dresses? maternity tops?). Mini dresses are also popular, as long as the wind doesn't blow and you don't have to sit down. At the other extreme is the maxi dress, the definition of which seems to be "a loose-fitting warm-weather dress that comes down to your ankles." Kind of like a... more
Burberry trench coats are (in our humble opinions) overpriced and underexciting. Save your savings for something more important, but protect yourself from spring showers with a Michael Kors trench coat. Available in many different styles and colors - including yellow, this season's "must-have" color - they'll shield you from Mother Nature without breaking the bank. More trench coats for men and women.
Do you remember Chuck Brown's 1978 hit Bustin' Loose? We think that should be the theme song for these BustFree non-bras. We can't really figure them out. They're padded cups that are made of some special material, so that they stay on and provide all the support you need, without any straps, hooks, tape, or adhesive. It sounds way too good to be true. If anyone reading this has had any experience... more
"Blue gingham. Trust us." That's the third directive on Esquire magazine's exhaustingly long list of The (New) Laws of Casual Style. We don't agree with all their "laws," but we're definitely pro-gingham (in almost any color), especially in the spring. Gingham oxford shirts look just as good with suits they do with jeans or khakis, everyone from L.L.Bean to Ben Sherman to the Gap makes them, and you can get them for... more
Yes, we know, it's only February. But high school girls are already shopping for prom dresses. We did a little research on prom dress trends this year, and it seems like just about anything goes - long or short, solids or prints, strapless or halters - as long as the dress is G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S (as Fergie would say). If we were still 16-going-on-30 and shopping for prom dresses, we'd choose one of these red-carpet-worthy
