How to Wear Coats with Midis

Midi skirts and dresses have hemlines that finish between the bottom of the kneecap and the bottom of the calf. Midis are longer than knee-length, and shorter than maxi length. These hemlines tend to be longer than regular hip and thigh-length outerwear, which can create outfit proportions we are simply not used to. Many women feel dowdy and unattractive in the combination, especially when a flared midi is combined with a thigh-length puffer. At the same time, midi dresses and skirts in all sort...

Best & Worst of 2000s Fashion Trends

Best & Worst of 2000s Fashion Trends Ahhh, the 2000s. Never has a decade seemed so close, yet so far away.

Some of those trends seem so relevant even today. And others, not so much. Here’s a look back at some of the best and worst of the decade. The Best Fashion Trends of the 2000s 1.

The Lighthouse Keeper

Long-rumored to never leave Finback Isle, Francis is something of an icon around Casco Bay. For years, his only reported human contact was two local lobster boats that brought supplies and food, mostly lobster. When he refused mandatory retirement, the Coast Guard acceded. Local papers ran coverage. The story of the tower-bound hermit grew. Imagine my surprise to see him in town one cold, windy afternoon. Square-jawed with a scar across his nose and brow, I recognized him immediately fr...

This $42 Faux-Fur Coat Makes Me Feel Like a Straight-Up Movie Star

After realizing that most of my shopping experiences in Winter end with me standing under a florescent light in the dressing room the same way I entered into this world - naked and afraid - I have succumbed to the fact that there is no corduroy trouser or other cold-weather trend cool enough for me to sacrifice warmth. Instead, I stick to wearing ugly 10-pound knitted scarves and my reliable puffer jacket. Would you be surprised to learn, then, that I have never owned a fur coat (real or otherw...

What Ever Happened to Plus-Size Line Pure Energy?

What Ever Happened to Plus-Size Line Pure Energy? As fashionistas, we see the rise and fall of so many labels that play in the budget space. Just when we grow fond of a line we can get at Target or Walmart, it disappears into the fashion graveyard — along with the retailers who couldn’t make it like Wet Seal, 5-7-9 and Contempo Casuals.

In those moments, you may wonder how a girl can properly put together stylish layered outfits. Not to worry though! You can master the layered look and stay...

Bruiser Moto Jacket

One wardrobe staple that never grows old, the leather jacket, notably comes in a handful of recognizable styles. None carry the same cultural gravitas as the moto jacket—be it on the back of bikers or anyone else. LA-based Buck Mason’s new Bruiser Moto Jacket carries all chemistry one hopes for—and does so through supple, twice-washed lambskin leather.

Driving and Outerwear

I don’t spend a lot of time in the car, but enough to have a preference for the type of outerwear that is most comfortable when driving: SHORT outerwear like peacoats, woolly bombers, blazers, denim jackets moto jackets, a cape coat, and short puffers.  I prefer the look, warmth, drama, elegance, and outfit versatility of longer coats. But they are less comfortable to wear when driving. They are bulky and get in the way. They also often crease at the back when you sit in them, which drives me ba...

Tale of Two Capes

I love jackets and coats. They are my second favourite wardrobe items (handbags come first). Fortunately I can put a large assortment of toppers across a range of thicknesses and silhouettes to good use in my climate, so my wants are somewhat rationalized by my needs. This brings me to the tale of two capes.  Capes aren’t as insulating as regular wool coats. They can be fussy, uncomfortable, unflattering, dowdy and impractical. That said, capes do have their advantages: They are a slam-dunk sil...
