Must Haves: 12 Cozy Sweaters To Get You Through Winter

I spend a significant portion of the winter months talking about how cold I am, how much I hate the cold, how I can’t wait for it to be summer, how the cold makes me want to die, how it seems like winter lasts twice as long as the good seasons, and, again, how much I hate the goddamn cold. Winter’s only saving grace is that it’s actually, you know, necessary to go shopping for warm clothes, because it’s not like it would be wise to freeze to death. Really, a winter wardrobe should be government subsidized. If it was, I would totally buy all of these super cute and cuddly sweaters. Maybe I would ever take the complaining down a notch.

12 Flowy Thanksgiving Dresses That Leave Room For More Turkey

Thanksgiving is upon us, which means it’s almost time to eat our body weight in stuffing, turkey and mashed potatoes! And even though some of us won’t have the luxury of enjoying the holiday in our sweatpants, we’ve found 12 comfy, casual dresses that are presentable enough for company, but loose enough that you can have some extra turkey without worry. One more thing to be thankful for this year: being able to conceal your food baby in style.

Must Haves: 14 Of This Season’s Chicest & Coziest Cape Coats

I don’t know what it is about a cape that looks so sophisticated, but every time I put one on I feel like some classy winter minx who wears leather gloves and saunters around the Met every weekend. Freezing in winter weather doesn’t have to be all miserable, right? Capes make outerwear a bit more fun — and maybe even make you feel like you can fly like some tweed-covered superhero.

20 Pieces Of Statement Jewelry That Will Make Your Clothes Look Like Different Clothes

I am a big gigantic proponent of only owning a simple, minimalistic set of high-quality shirts, pants, and dresses. It saves money in the long run, it’s versatile, it’s good for the environment, and it takes a lot of the guesswork, time, and agony out of getting dressed in the morning. My day-to-day wardrobe consists mostly of two pairs of black leggings, two pairs of jeans, and multiples of tank tops, T-shirts and long-sleeved shirts that I bought in a few neutral colors. Everything fits right, and everything matches everything. Voilà.

However, I’m also sensitive to the fact that women both are expected to adorn ourselves more prettily than that, and that many of us like to. I like to! I just don’t want to do it through my clothes anymore. The solution I’ve come up with is to buy interesting jewelry that’s bold enough to change the whole look of my outfit, making it appear as if I own more than basically four or five outfits. The great thing about it is that you don’t have to spend much money on it, and if you ever feel like getting rid of a piece, you can trade a friend for a different piece of jewelry. Frugality! Check out these inexpensive bracelets, necklaces, and body chains for inspiration.

This Vintage Pin-Up Runway Show Is The Stuff Fashion Dreams Are Made Of

This year’s Lingerie Fashion Week in New York coincided with the 75th anniversary of the invention of nylon stockings, and the pin-up inspired lingerie line Secrets In Lace celebrated with a vintage runway show and burlesque performance. From the sounds of it, the show was the kind of fashion celebration vintage dreams are made of — models walked the runway to live jazz music, burlesque star Angie Pontani performed, and a host of curvy models rocked Dita Von Teese’s nylon line, which is manufactured on the machines that created the original nylon stockings of the 1940s. It’s so refreshing to see a fashion show that highlights the female body as is without the body image-crushing restrictions of most modern runways. Vintage fans, click through for highlights of the show! [Image via Thorsten Roth]

Kourtney Kardashian Once Again Makes Pregnancy Look Flawless & Adorable

I have an ongoing obsession with Kourtney’s pregnancy style. Maybe it’s because I’m petite/curvy like her and like her fashion ideas for my body type, or maybe it’s just because she has super duper expensive clothes and thus looks way more chic than your average reality TV star. All I can say is that she looks adorable in her latest venture out shopping for baby clothes with her sister Khloe. Where do I get myself one of those half cardigan/half semi-jacket hybrid things she is wearing? How does she make a baby bump look so cute? How does she compel me to use the twee phrase “baby bump” without rolling my eyes? I must say, I also adore the way she and Khloe hold hands when the paparazzi hounds them. The sisters look much cuter walking side by side than Kourt and Lord Disick even on their best day. [Image via Fame/Flynet]
