With countless options to choose from, it is becoming more difficult by the season to pick flattering pieces that will suit your particular shape. To make it easier for you, we spent hours toiling over today’s top trends and came up with tips on looking skinny without sacrificing style. 

During the Great Depression, fashion was put on the back burner because of the poor economic climate. Because Americans were forced to ration fabric, fashionable women used their sewing skills to alter their clothes and update them in creative ways to keep up with the trends.

From the mind to the runway

This past Friday, the Wall Street Journal’s Home Front featured the Tuscan villa of designer Frida Giannini, the creative mind behind Gucci’s revamped image.

With days getting shorter and the temperature dropping, the fashion focus is turning to winter coats. This season promises to be one in which coats will shine in a variety of new styles and shapes.

Animal heaven

When fashion turns disastrous

Sometimes, even I am surprised to see the lengths girls are willing to go to just to gain men’s attention.

The other day I was reading through a couple of AP world news stories and I happened to stumble across a fashion article which boasted about the individuality and the freshness of the Spring/Summer 2009 London Fashion Week collections. You might wonder why I chose to mention the London fashion week at this particular point in time, but I feel that IU fashion is in desperate need of originality. It’s important to spend a little time talking about how crucial it is for each of us to have an individual fashion style.

Look around you for just a moment and count how many people are wearing sweat pants, ripped T-shirts, house slippers and other similar items – you’ll probably lose count in the first five seconds. And while classes are starting here at IU, that is no excuse to carry on those lazy summer fashions. I recently took a stroll around campus in search for my next column inspiration, and, as usual, I was not disappointed with the amount of material I found. Just about everywhere I turned, I saw a couple of girls wearing wife beaters, sweats and a pair of Goodwill house slippers.

Bring on the fashion

Fashion is constantly changing. Each new season brings something new to the table, and it can be difficult to keep up with the demands of the fashion world.

Eight trends have emerged as this fall’s most wanted.

The country catwalk

Whoever said country fashion isn’t stylish never witnessed the chic, bold style of artists such as Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks and Toby Keith.
