If you've tried all the strapless, strappy, or cleavage-baring dresses going and you're yearning for something new, a backless style offers a whole different approach to sexy for party season. The big reveal when you turn around gives these dresses appeal at all angles, and the newer crop of cutout and tie-back dresses mean even those with larger busts can get the look (whilst still being able to wear a bra). From slinky designer slip dresses to retro-inspired jacquard styles, we've picked some of the best backless styles for your next big night out.
By the time they reach their 40s, most women know what they want when it comes to beauty. The experimental days of glitter and gloss are probably behind them, they know what works for their skin tone and hair type, and there's a big chance their tastes have got a little bit more expensive. Forty-something skin needs a little more care and attention, and it's around this time that the dreaded word "antiageing" really comes into play. But though fine lines and wrinkles may be a concern for some women, you should always avoid products with age-related jargon emblazoned on the packaging when it comes to gifts! Instead, our picks for 40-somethings include key skin care ingredients like retinol and hyaluronic acid, classic brands like Chanel and Dior, and cool new formulas and innovations that'll excite even the most experienced beauty buff!
Who said December has to be all about gifts? When you're spending all that time finding the perfect presents for your loved ones, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself, too. From party dresses to Winter warmers, my December fashion must haves will keep you looking fabulously festive all month long!
Pack away your emerald accessories, ladies. That jewel tone is so 2013. The It colour for 2014? According to the hue professionals over at Pantone, it's a lovely shade of purple known as Radiant Orchid.
But if your wardrobe isn't filled with lilacs and lavenders, fear not. Pantone also just released its official Fashion Colour Report for Spring 2014, complete with Dazzling Blues and Celosia Oranges. And if you're still unsure how to factor, say, a coral called Cayenne into your next outfit, New York's best designers have offered up sketches, their inspirations, and — not to complicate things — their own signature colour.
