How to...pull off knee high tights

You haven't heard? They are all the rage for Fall/Winter '08 fashion wear. Wear them with boots, flats, oxfords, and even sneakers if you can pull them off. But anyone with the right color and right shape will be perfect in these sensations.
Just like you would think, all the stars are wearing them. Check out Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, and Blake Lively with friend Leighton Meester traveling on the Gossip Girl set. The link is to see them looking fabulous in the knee high tights.
Now just like everyone you know from putting on a scarf, beret, and top it's time for me to show you how it's done to look well put together. Now for the Top Five Tips.

Tip 1: Love the look with fun colorful dresses or skirts that match the tights. Also try bermudas too. No matter what, let them show!

Tip 2: Look great above the knee. What's great is that it makes your leg look slimmer, and outlines the great qualities of it.

Tips 3: Makes a slouchy, but casual outfit chic. P.S. a skinny top, and jeans makes it skimpy, not fashion forward material.

Tip 4: Try to get as many different styles as possible. These knee high stockings will be a classic (I promise).

Tip 5: When pulling this look off, not only are you trying something new, but you are expressing your own self! The next time you walk through the doors wearing these new tights, have confidence, and SMILE!

What is your "How to..." idea? Post it online!

Back to Basics with a Twist

Tired of the L.L. Beanbackpacks, and the cheesy Jansports, time to saddle up with the cool Japanese inspired Harajuku Lovers. It's the new "It" item this fall. These bags come in unique bright colors, and can hold all your papers, books, and accessories. We have to give a hand to Gwen Stefani. She has proved herself with this awesome brand full of fun, exciting clothes, handbags, and watches. Thanks G!

Dial H for Haute!

When you just that Ralph is done till next season, he pops out with another
label called, "Rugby." Talk about haute! With fun colors, and great new designs the polos are a must have! You can find the next "BIG" thing at a Rugby store. Right now the fall collection is in stores, and one of the must haves is a new crested polo. Also a cool college scarf. And not to forget an old favorite, a khaki ribbed wool beret. Check to see if there is a store near you on their website, and I will be watching closely!
