The warmth of the holiday season is long gone, but the chill of winter remains as does our need for thick materials like denim, wool, leather and cashmere.

Dare I say that we get stuck in a rut when it comes to dressing in finicky weather ...Read more
Sometimes putting together a great-looking outfit can feel like advanced math. What do you have to mix and match, layer together and accessorize in order to come up with a winning result?

It goes without saying that everything looks different on a model than it does in real life. Over-the-knee boots are no exception. On the catwalk they seem effortlessly stunning and easy to pull off, especially when nonchalantly paired with a micro mini or floating dress, cut up to the thigh.
In the real world, they're a little trickier to wear...Read more
The closet of our dreams would be organized, clutter-free and purge itself every year. Even better, this dream closet would only be filled with clothes that make us look and feel amazing. Think about it. Wouldn't it be wonderful to love every piece you have? Wouldn't you love to never frown at a piece again, wondering what you were thinking when...Read more

Our closets are these smallish, usually windowless, spaces in our bedrooms where we spend only a mere fraction of our day. During this small part of the day, we tend to stand in front of our closets as if they're crystal balls, asking the space to tell us what we should wear. Our closets, like the crystal ball, hold the potential to make or ...Read more
I've always been a fan of animal print in fashion. There's something so beautiful about a sharply styled outfit that boasts a bold print.
For some, sporting animal print is second nature, but others may not have the easiest time rocking cheetah, leopard or zebra patterns, especially on the job.
Something to remember is that you don't have to ...Read more

Tailors are a given for stars because they have access to perks like private shoppers and stylists. But chances are you've probably never had anything tailored besides the bridesmaid dress you wore at your best friend's wedding.
Most people do not realize ...Read more
When it comes to fashion, having Prada taste on a Gap budget can leave you wistfully flipping through the pages of "Vogue" feeling green with envy. Designer fashion doesn't come cheap, especially for big-ticket items like coats, shoes, and handbags.

Hi, my name is Aramide and I am a recovering overpacker. When it came time for any trip, I'd get a serious case of clothes and accessories FOMO and I would pack things I would maybe need instead of only what I would wear. I like options and the thought of not having something in another city made me nearly break out in hives.

With winter and a new year right around the corner, now is a good time to think about change. But what happens if YOU are the one changing? Maybe you just had a baby, or started a new career venture, or perhaps you're going through a breakup or divorce.

Lately I've noticed that everyone is really into the idea of a capsule wardrobe: a pared down wardrobe consisting of just a few items that go together in multiple ways.
