You know what I want? I really want some truly opaque leggings. I bought some from target but they are still see through. I don't *think* it's a size/stretch issue. College student friendly budget. Any thoughts? Options for faux leather accents accepted.

when it comes to the classics, i don’t like to skimp, and a quality pair of black leggings definitely falls into this category. while i know you are watching your budget, trust me when i say that you can get something great for around the $50 mark. it isn’t worth buying two pairs for $15 each if they can only handle three wears, ya dig?

Hi Sara! I wanted to know how us bigger girls can wear polo necks without looking bigger or looking like we have no neck! Thanks! x

image

as a large-chested broad, i feel your pain. avoid looking like a shy turtle by keeping the top button of the neckline open, thereby airing out the décolletage and showing off your gorgeous neckline. add a necklace for some sparkle! be sure that the shirt itself is well-fitting; if it feels too snug, it likely is, which will make you look bigger than you are.

I've been looking for an affordable fur coat or fur vest, but I want it to look nice and not tacky. Any suggestions

image

girl, you know i have suggestions — in fact, i found three. looking at them, it is important to seek out versions with a simple structure. avoid additional details such as studs, bright coloring, or decorative additions like belts in favor of something more classic.

with a difficult item to style such as knee or thigh-high socks, i tend to scour the internet for inspiration. i need to see how cool girls on the street are wearing them!

im in love with the ann demeulemeester lace up high boots kendall jenners always wearing, but they cost like 2 grand. Do you know of any simular looking chunky tall pairs under 300$?

the second-to-youngest jenner girl really knows her shit when it comes to personal style, doesn’t she? a simple search gleaned tons of results when it comes to tall lace-up boots, though they did lack the lug sole and knee strap of that pair you’re lusting over. nevertheless, i hope you like the ones i highlighted!

Need your help big time!! Where can I find some affordable yet awesome ankle-length boots for everyday use? I'm pretty short and always find these to cut off my legs and make my legs look short. Wouldn't mind a slight heel but still comfortable for daily use. Thank you Sara. You rock!

lucky for you, my anonymous friend, you can find ankle boots e-ver-y-where as they are a huge footwear trend right now. with that in mind, i found four styles for you; all are neutral, priced below $100, and feature minimal hardware making them super wearable.

thanks to ann taylor, this beautiful clutch recently came into my possession in celebration of the retailer’s newest collection of little black dresses, designed by the very lovely kate hudson. yes, that kate hudson. hitting stores this month, the actress collaborated with creative director lisa axelson to create a line-up of classic frocks you’re definitely going to want because a wardrobe can never have too much black.

snaps to my friend gabi on her most recent project, a midkini by swimsuits for all, which was designed to fit sizes 8 to 24 (and only costs $78!). the swimsuit launch is a continuation of last year’s release, which made perfect sense after the near-uproar that occurred after she wore  what was soon dubbed “the fatkini" on a trip to vegas.
