“I recently purchased this Oh My Love Textured Skater Dress from ASOS, and need help styling this gem! Got any advice?” — Megan

You know, normally, I’m all, “demure, demure, demure, don’t look like you’re up in the clurb when you’re actually going to the bank,” but something tells me that a woman whose email address includes the words “fashion diva” can handle a little wild style. After the jump, black and yellow, black and yellow.

“I’m a woman with love handles. I’m 5’11″ and a size 10 but even when I was a size 6, my (definitely smaller) love handles were still be a problem. Could you recommend good jeans for someone with this issue? I have two styles of jeans from The Gap and it has to be a really super fabulous body image day for me to wear them out of the house. Basically I’m left with my H&M skinny jeans with normal rise. They’re a size bigger than I normally wear but, unlike The Gap, they still cling well to my thighs despite being a little looser in the waist where I need the help. Going up to a 12 at The Gap is too big, too baggy and completely unflattering.

Any help would be amazing! I’m willing to pay $100 or even a bit more for something that is flattering and fits well.” — Jil

8 Ways Your Clothes May Be Dangerous To Your Health

We are happy to admit that we are obsessed with trends and fashion here at HuffPost Style. But even the most devoted fashion fans acknowledge that there are times when clothes are painful, both on the body and on the eyes. Is it possible our wardrobes could actually be dangerous to something more than our wallets? Here are seven clothing culprits might actually be hurting you.

1. The problem: Chemicals in fabrics. This is an obvious one. Back in November, we ran a piece on a report from Greenpeace that detailed the toxic chemicals used in clothes from fast fashion chains. According to Greenpeace’s Media Officer, Myriam Fallon, “Many chemicals that are used in the dying and processing of fabrics can become hormone disrupting and even cancer causing when they break down in nature, and those chemicals are being dumped into rivers right near the factories.” Read more …

“I could really use your advice about this pair of velvet Levi’s that I bought. I have been a jeans-only girl my entire life, so the last time I was at the mall I decided to be a little adventurous and went ahead and bought these pants without any thought as to how I might style them. Now I’m stuck! Thus far, I’ve only been able to awkwardly pair them with a white striped shirt! I could really use suggestions for not only tops, but shoes as well. I hope this doesn’t pose too difficult of a challenge!” – Deepa

Deepa, you are a braver woman than I — I am perennially scared of velvet, mostly because it brings up terrible nightmares of the purple crushed-velvet dress with batwing sleeves I wore to my 8th grade dance. Nightmares! But these velvet pants? They’re pretty damn cute. The thing with velvet is you’ve got to be careful not to pair it with a fabric that’s too weak or flimsy. Otherwise, the pants will completely outshine the shirt. That’s why we’d opt for a chambray button down — it’s got enough heft to it that your outfit will feel balanced. As for shoes, absolutely do not wear the shoes pictured with the pants — those nude platforms will only make your legs look stumpy in velvet jeans. Instead, opt for a low heeled bootie — check out the items we’ve picked out for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

Wearing a bright, bold shirt might be too much for some. But never fear, we’ve got three ways to wear that impulse purchase that’s been sitting in your closet, collecting dust. The key with any kind of bold shirt or blouse is to make sure that what you pair it with is fairly basic and plain. You don’t want to be competing with what you’re wearing, after all.

Jeans are the keystone around which the rest of my wardrobe revolves. Sure, they’re not exactly trendy or adventurous, but they are definitely cool, comfortable, and the easiest thing to throw on in any given morning. The perfect pair can make you look like a supercharged version of yourself — taller, thinner, more stylish, even smarter! We may have left our printed jeans back in summer storage, but that doesn’t mean we’ve resigned ourselves to the faded old stalwarts: coated, or waxed, denim not only provides a sleek substitute to the black and blue variety, but the thicker, more substantial fabric makes it perfect for the cooler seasons upon us. We took the guesswork out of what to wear with your new favorite pair of jeans by putting together three different looks, after the jump … Keep reading »
