Stay Warm & Rock Out With Hear Muffs

It took me seven years East Coast winters to figure out, but ear muffs are essential to staying warm when the temperatures drop. You could be bundled up in your warm coat, gloves and scarf, with two sweaters and long johns layered underneath, but if your ears are exposed, you will still feel frozen. Not eve…

The Cuddliest Mittens Around

As a dog owner, I spend a lot of time outside during the dead of winter, clutching a leash or tossing a ball at the snow-covered park. I am also a native Californian, and even after 10 years on the East Coast, I haven't quite acclimated to temperatures below 50 degrees. As a result, super…

Do Not Want: Earmuffs The Size Of Your Head

I'm all for accessories that make a strong statement, but let's make sure that statement isn't, "I just stopped by the pet store and strapped a couple angry guinea pigs to my head." And for $165? You could buy one pair of normal sized, reasonably priced ear muffs and, like, 10 happy guinea pigs. I…

Are You Braced For The Beret Comeback?

Off the top off our heads, heh, people who wear berets: Beatniks, Parisians, Carrie Bradshaw trying to look like a dumb Parisian, models in the Spiegel catalogue, women in the '80s. That doesn't paint the most appealing of pictures. While the beret has been around in fashion circles for ages, you probably haven't had one…

When the cold weather hits, looking hot isn't an easy thing to achieve. In many cases, an attempt to stay warm can result in a Marshmallow Man phenomenon, something that wasn't even stylish in 1984. Check out these scarves, gloves, and other winter warmers that will dress you up, but not necessarily weigh you down.

Fashion Slideshow: Ombré Clothing And Accessories

We've noticed Ombré fashion everywhere this season. Ombré is a French term meaning "shaded." Have you ever noticed a shirt or something else that gradiates from a light color to a darker color? Well that's ombré. Since wearing bands of color is difficult for some people, you can also find ombré accessories. Gloves, handbags and…
