Have the winter blahs got you down? Are you ready to add a little zazz to your wardrobe? If so, it's time to lift yourself up and climb aboard the latest trend in hosiery: coloured tights. That's right. Coloured fashion tights have replaced stockings and pantyhose as the legwear of choice for fashionistas who want to pick up the pace and add some drama to their outfits. The choices are endless, so you can rest assured that you can find fashion tights that you love. Let's look at some options: Fabrications for Every Occasion Tights come in a wide variety of fabrications. Merino wool tights, for example, are perfect to keep your legs warm on a chilly winter's day. Pair your wool tights with a short wool dress and a thin belt for a fashion statement that's both stylish and comfortable. Cotton tights have a variety of textures, depending on the manufacturing process. They can feel like velvet and go from work to evening with ease, or can be luxuriously thick to keep your legs protected from icy blasts of wind. Tights made from a blend of denier and lycra have the wonderful smoothness of microfiber with the perfect measure of opacity that makes them an excellent choice for work or for a night on the town. Colours for Every Mood When it comes to coloured tights, your choices are limited only by your imagination. From classic black to classy off-white, from chocolate brown to grape purple, from mustard yellow to slate grey, tights come in dozens of colours. In fact, the trend this season is to buy tights in virtually every color available, and use them as a wardrobe accessory. Want to kick that little black dress up a notch? Pair it with red tights and a skinny red belt and watch heads turn. If you're not quite ready for startling contrasts, go with the tone-on-tone look and pair moss green tights with a moss green skirt and sweater. Or choose complementary colors for a put-together look. If you're on the shorter side and want to appear taller, choose lighter coloured tights; if you want to lengthen your torso, opt for darker coloured tights. Whichever way you go, your choices are endless. Kick Around Some Patterns This season, the fashion story isn't only about colour - it's also about pattern. Make a funky statement with polka dot tights, red gingham tights, or give your legs a splash of color with a sumptuous pink and blue floral pattern. Want a look that's slightly more subdued by that still makes a statement? Go for tartan or argyle patterned tights. Of course, there are occasions when you might prefer holdups, thigh highs, a beautiful silk stocking, or even a body stocking, but for the sheer fun of it, you should treat yourself to coloured tights. Winter seems much less dreary when you have some fun with fashion!
You have purchased your prom dress, shoes, jewelry, and handbag. You have decided on whether you will style your hair yourself or go to a beautician. Now you need to decide if you will do your own makeup or have it done professionally. With 2007 prom dresses, it's all about fashion, and makeup is a part of that fashion statement that will make you shine! If you are one that does not like to wear makeup, you will need to wear a small amount for your prom. Makeup will bring your features out and cover those unwanted blemishes. If you have decided to do your own makeup, put on your makeup before putting on your prom dress. This is a precaution to protect your prom dress from any drops or spills that may take place while you are applying your makeup. There are many tips for applying makeup that can bring out your natural beauty. Foundation and Concealer The first step in applying makeup is choosing the perfect foundation. This is done by matching the makeup with your skin tone and complexion. Always make sure the makeup is well blended and there are no foundation lines around the neck. For any visible blemishes or dark circles under the eyes, a concealer can be used. Just dab it on lightly and blend it in good with the foundation. Eye Makeup Once your foundation is applied, your eyes are the next important step. You do not want your eye shadow to match the color of your prom dress, but you do want it to compliment the dress. In order to highlight your eyes, you will use a lighter shade or the base color from the lash line to the brow. Use a darker shade as a contour along the upper lash line from the center toward the outer corner, then back along crease. With an eyeliner pencil, draw a single line above upper lash line from inner to outer corner. Then, draw a line under your lower lashes from outer to inner corner. Mascara adds the finishing touch to your eyes. Hold the brush vertically to stroke your lower lashes. Then, for your upper lashes, wiggle the brush back and forth at the base, and then sweep the brush upward. Blush You may want to add a little cheek color just to make people think you have a natural glow. For applying this, you can use a cheek color brush and this will make blending easier. Lipstick Your lips can be brought out by lining them with a pencil, then filling them in with a creamy lipstick. This will give definition and shape to your lips. Glossy lipstick can be used for that stunning look. Powder Finally, after all your prom makeup has been applied, dust your face with loose powder using light, downward strokes. This can be applied by using a powder brush Body Makeup You may want to experiment with the body makeup to highlight your prom dress. This is glitter powder or gel that can be applied to your arms and shoulders and you will look like you are under the stars Just one tip: Do not use any of your friend's makeup (especially eye makeup). Bacteria may be in the makeup because it has been opened and used. This can cause eye infection or pink eye. If you are having your makeup done professionally, carry your own lipstick with you. These makeup tips can also be used for other occasions in which formal dresses, homecoming gowns and Quinceanera gowns are worn. Makeup and prom dresses can blend to bring out your beauty on your special evening!
In observance of National Underwear Day on August 9, a male modeling website is encouraging shoppers to submit cellphone snapshots of the best and worst male underwear packaging in the United States. Cell phone and digital photos can be sent via Sprint’s Picturemail service to: CampusMen@pm. sprint The male underwear industry has grown substantially since the days when Calvin Klein billboards stopped traffic in New York's Time Square. Many small manufacturers now offer underwear that ranges from strictly utilitarian briefs to elaborate undies that rival Michael Jackson's wardrobe. Some are pricey and some are cheap and packaging runs the gamut from sexually titilating (obviously aimed at wives and girlfriends who are shopping for their mates) to blue-collar basics (favorites of the white socks and cigars crowd). Campus Men, a calendar and male modeling resource company that has been making good looking college guys famous since 1990, was amused by the variations it found in male underwear marketing. Photo editors had shopped department stores, closeout bins and dime stores to find the perfect skivvies for Campus Men photo shoots. After seeing such a range of choices, they decided to sponsor a hunt to find the most amusing packaging, as well as packaging that shows the best in marketability. All snapshots received for the contest will be displayed on the CampusMen website at campusmen/model-search/male-modeling/underwear_modeling. html The winner in each category will be announced on National Underwear Day, August 9. -30-

Unlike their mothers, expectant moms have more options for their maternity wardrobe, and these options include maternity jeans. Why Buy Maternity Jeans? People have always viewed jeans as the ultimate garment when it comes to comfort. This is hardly surprising, given that jeans first originated as part of the working man’s attire. In the olden days, only blue collar workers wore jeans because jeans allow them to do their jobs in comfort and because they are very durable. Jeans also give its wearer some flexibility when it comes to style. For a casual look, a woman can simply match her jeans with a T-shirt and a pair of sneakers, and then she is good to go. If she is aiming for a more stylish look, she can wear a classy blouse with her jeans, put on boots or heeled shoes, and then top the look with some jewelry and accessories. The point is that she can create any look she wants with her jeans just by mixing and matching tops, shoes and accessories. Comfort and flexibility are what made jeans an essential garment in any woman’s wardrobe. It does not matter whether she is pregnant or not. Wearing maternity jeans will give a woman the comfort that she needs during this special and delicate time of her life. Regular jeans are not designed to give this comfort that a pregnant woman needs. Wearing maternity jeans also lets her continue playing with her sense of style despite her growing belly. Choosing Flattering Maternity Jeans Just like regular jeans, maternity jeans come in a wide array of fits, cuts, styles and washes. There are also embellished maternity jeans for women who like their jeans with embroidery and beading. There are so many options available to pregnant women now when it comes to maternity fashion, and so she should take advantage of the choices at her disposal as much as she can. It is important for a pregnant woman to choose the maternity jeans that fits her well and flatters her body. As comfortable and as casual jeans are, they can easily expose the flaws of a woman’s figure if the jeans do not fit her. They will reveal every curve that she would rather hide. The same applies to pregnant women. An expectant mom can be very sensitive about the way her body looks and how her belly bump changes the shape of her figure during her pregnancy. If she is concerned about looking bloated in her maternity jeans, she can avoid that by picking a pair of maternity jeans that fits her well and is just perfect for her. The same principles about buying clothes according to the shape of one’s body apply to buying maternity jeans. Slender women are still better off with straight cut jeans that will emphasize their slimness and their long legs. Boot cut maternity jeans are still the mode for plus-size women because these jeans lend a balanced look to a curvy body. Most maternity jeans, however, have a low waist or are hipsters. Maternity jeans of this kind allow more room for a pregnant woman’s growing belly. A Few Considerations When Buying Maternity Jeans Though maternity jeans come in all sorts of cuts, fits and styles, there are some types of maternity jeans that can provide the most comfort for a pregnant woman. If a woman wants to wear maternity jeans during her pregnancy but has issues regarding comfort, she can keep these tips in mind while shopping for maternity jeans: 1.

Adjustable maternity jeans often have side panels, inside waist cinch, as well as buttonhole extenders. Adjustable maternity jeans are practical for the pregnant woman on a budget because it means she does not have to buy new ones when she grows too big for her jeans. 3. Maternity jeans with a jersey stomach panel provide a higher level of comfort for some pregnant women. Where and When Should One Buy Maternity Jeans?

Leather has emerged as a force in men's outerwear this fall. Whether it's a bomber jacket or a three-quarter-length dress lambskin coat, leather's durability and versatility make it an important piece to add to your wardrobe. When trying on a bomber jacket, make sure to move your body. Walk around, move your arms front to back, even twist to look over your shoulders. Check for ease of mobility and a comfortable fit. The fabric of a jacket should not pull across the back area, around the hips or in the armholes. Also, be sure to check the sleeve length. With proper care, your leather jacket will last many years, making it a wise investment. In fact, the longer you wear leather, the more "broken in" it becomes, similar to the way a baseball glove breaks in and becomes a part of you. When purchasing a new leather bomber jacket, keep the following in mind. Style: There are many styles to choose from, so think about how you will be wearing it. Most jackets today can be worn either dressed up with a shirt, tie and dress pants, or dressed down with a casual shirt and jeans or khakis. Weather: Many leather jackets now come with removable linings made of Thins late, pile or fleece - prefect for staying warm in colder climates. Take out the lining, and you can still wear the coat in spring and fall. Sizing: A leather jacket should be on the loose side so it can be worn over a sweater or other piece of bulky clothing. Durability: Price doesn't necessarily equal durability when it comes to leather outerwear. Lambskin is the softest type of leather and looks dressier, but it's less durable and more expensive than cowhide. Expect to pay $400 to $800 for a good quality lamb jacket. Cowhide is more rugged and generally costs less (anywhere from $300 to $500). Types of Leather used to make bomber jackets to fully understand the types of leather available; one must first know the term "grain". The grain is simply the epidermis, or outer layer of the animal's skin. While imperfections such as cuts, scars, and scratches will exist; the grain in its natural state has the best fiber strength, and therefore the best durability. The grain also has natural breath ability, resulting in greater comfort to the wearer. Finished Split Leather The middle or lower section of a hide that has been split into two or more thickness. A polymer coating is applied and embossed to mimic grain leather. Finished splits should only be used in low stress applications because they basically have no grain. If the Polymer coating is left out it is often used to make suede. Not considered to be riding grade, but can look good nevertheless. Top Grain Leather Top grain leather has been sanded to remove scars and imperfections, then sprayed or pasted for a uniform look. The smooth side is where the hair and the natural grain used to be. Top grain is not the same quality as full grain or naked leather, but thickness of 1.2-3mm makes this type of leather a very strong and durable riding grade material. Full-Grain and Naked Leather Full-Grain leather is made from the finest hides, and has not been sanded to remove imperfections. Only the hair has been removed. In the case of Naked Leather, where nothing other than the dye is added; this very soft leather requires no breaking in period. Hides are typically 2mm thick, and must be hand picked for uniformity. The natural full-grain naked leather will wear better than other leather, and will actually improve over the years. This type of leather is the ultimate riding grade; the most sought after, and consequently, the most expensive. For winter biking, a bomber jacket with a belt will allow you to adjust the jacket to fit snugly against the upper body. Of course, being able to fully zip up only adds to your protection from the wind. You can also wear a leather vest underneath your bomber Jacket for extra warmth. For hot summer days, a leather jacket with air vents allows the air to circulate underneath the jacket and around your body. For an all year round jacket, consider one with a zip or snap out insulated lining.

For an exquisite gift to that special man in your life, a designer tie can be just what you're looking for. They are a truly luxurious gift and will last for many years when properly cared for. How to choose one that is truly good quality? Price isn't always a good indicator. Here are a few tips to help you when shopping for men's ties: BIAS CUT You want a tie that has the fabric cut on the bias. This helps ensure that the tie falls straight rather than twisting or falling at an angle. To test a bias cut, try this: take the necktie and make a tie knot. Drape it over your hand (make sure the knot lies on top). If the tie falls straight and not off center, the tie is likely cut on the bias. TIE LINING The lining could be cut too small for the design of the tie and can cause it to pucker or curl at the edges. Test the lining by draping an unknotted tie in half over your hand. Watch that the narrow end of the tie falls to the middle of the wider end. This is a good indicator that the tie is falling straight and the lining is sized appropriately. STRETCH THE TIE Grab the necktie at both ends and give it a good tug. If the tie retains its shape and is not misshapen once you relax the ends, it's a sign that the tie is well made and the fabric is of good quality. LOOK FOR THREE PIECES A good quality tie will have one piece for the back narrow end, one piece for the front wide and and one piece for the center neckband. FABRIC A fine quality tie is made from silk (not satin!) with the lining made from wool. Look for high wool content or 100% wool. Keeping these tips in mind the next time you shop for a good quality men's tie will help save yourself from spending too much money on a shoddy necktie priced as if it were a well made designer label tie.
