Fashion sweatshirts: The new must-have piece we keep getting letters about
Not exactly what you might think of as a fashion staple — until now.
As fashion credits editor, I get tons of mail about what pieces you're loving (and want to snag off the shelves ASAP) in the magazine. The big hit from our March 2013 issue? The Kenzo sweatshirt Miroslava Duma wore on Page 163, in our "Glam Girl" feature — even though you could see only a fraction of it on the page! Here's the full pic of Miroslava's look. (Warning: Prepare to love it even more!)
Sweatshirts are soft, cozy and comfy, but not exactly what you might think of as a fashion staple — until now. Thanks to brands like Kenzo, they come in a slew of different prints, embellished patterns and fabrics (think neoprene, leather and lace) that are far from boring.

I prefer the styles with a graphic center image. I love the retro vibe it gives (like your favorite college sweatshirt), and it works well with bold jewelry and unexpected bottoms like a printed skirt and heels. Regardless of what style you chose, make sure it fits well. Too big and it will look frumpy; too tight and it'll look childish.

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
