Fall Finds: Welcome the new season into your wardrobe

Early fall in Kansas City can be a challenge. New fashions have hit the stores and your summer wardrobe has worn out its welcome, yet it’s still too warm to really enjoy those cozy sweaters and boots you’re craving.

Fit 101: Learn to work with your curves, not against them

Why are all the cute clothes designed for skinny people? It can sometimes feel like it’s a skinny woman’s world and we’re just lucky to be in it. Most designers use the tiny fit model’s measurements for their clothes, which don’t look good on all women.

Transitional Style: Trends to wear now and later

Transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall in the Midwest can make your closet a hot mess as you sort through it all. To make the process a bit more organized, start with some of season's best trends: colored jeans, floral dresses, lace tops and pencil skirts. Then creatively layer a few extra pieces to go effortlessly from late summer to early fall in style.

World War II and its fabric rations wreaked havoc on female style. Post-war time had women desiring new clothes with a more feminine shape and the title of best dressed housewife. Cinched waists and hourglass figures were as hot in the '50s as they are now. (Sixty years of fashion, and sex appeal is still the desired effect.)

 

Lounge Life: Pool-perfect looks inspired by the hottest trends
