But not all of us know how to wear them. So that’s why we’ve put together a handy guide to three different ways to wear booties — including a casual day look and a fancier night outfit.

Since it’s now officially freeze your tits off cold, we’re betting tons of dudes are going to be pulling out their favorite plaid flannels. But guys shouldn’t have all the plaid fun — girls can wear it too, and still look cute and feminine — if you follow our rules. Here are our 13 guidelines to wearing plaid and not looking like a butch Christmas tree skirt (unless you want to and that’s your thing).
You know how it is — you get all excited about a dress, but then it sits in your closet and basically rots while you figure out how to wear it. This happens to me all the time. But never fear, we’ve got a plan to help you make the most out of what you’ve got. I like to buy rather basic dresses, so they can be worn fancy or casual, depending on your mood and desires. And for this experiment, I’ve picked a pretty plain A-line blue dress (blue is the new black, after all). Keep reading »
“I’m searching for a cute black leather jacket in the price range of under $500, sort of like the one that Ami’s been rocking. There’s so many of them out there it’s overwhelming to search, but I think it’s an item a lot of Frisky readers might be interested in, especially now that the temperatures are dropping.” –Heather
Finding the perfect leather jacket is definitely a process of trial and error. I asked Ami about hers, and she said it’s vintage. Buying vintage might be one option you want to pursue, but you’ll have to be prepared to hit up a bunch of vintage shops and try on a zillion jackets (which could be, you know, fun). But if you’re really anti-vintage, we’ve found a few options that might work, too. Check ‘em out after the jump!

I was having a conversation with one of my girlfriends the other day and she mentioned how she loves motorcycle boots, but has no idea how to incorporate them into her current wardrobe. I’ve heard this a lot in the past couple months, so I figured I’d share with you the easy ways you can incorporate this awesome flat boot into a variety of your looks.
Motorcycle boots have a tendency to come off a bit tough (think Rooney Mara in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), but they’re really much more versatile and easy to wear.
Want proof? Check out these three totally different ways to rock this “hardcore” style using Steve Madden’s Tarnney Boots. Read more…
“I have a vintage stole that was my grandmother’s from the 1940s or so, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it! How do I wear something like this?” – Sonia
The way I see it, you have two options: play into the retro-ness of the stole, or try and redefine it entirely. That’s why we’ve given you two contrasting options — one that plays up the vintage-y vibe and one that allows you to rock this stole with stuff you probably already have in your wardrobe. But hey, wearing something as crazy unique as a vintage stole is all about attitude — if you wear it with confidence, you can wear it with practically anything! Keep reading »
