What's Hot for Winter 2013

Shopping for a new look? This winter it's all about edgy tough style with softening touches. Check out our favorite winter trends: animal print, studding, leather, colorful blazers, and military inspired cuts.

 

Animal Prints

It's beginning to look a lot like the 80's, with zebra, cheetah, leopard and unidentified animal-style prints adorning everything from pants to accessories. You'll continue to see it spill over to desk accessories, locker accessories and room accents like pillows and comforters. Animal prints are a great accent to monochromatic (one-colored) color-blocked looks. Only the bold can pull off the above allover print!

Studded Boots and Jackets

Bring on the bling machine -- this season the studs are everywhere. Boots, handbags, leather jackets, denim jackets, pants, gloves, shirt collars -- you name it, someone's studded it for Winter 2013. You can DIY pretty easily, transforming an old denim jacket with studs purchased at a craft store like Joann's or Michael's, a pencil or ruler to plan your layout and keep it straight, and a metal tool to bend the spikes down on the reverse side of the fabric. Not feeling crafty? You can buy a pre-studded version just about anywhere!

Leather Jackets and Accessories

This season's hard edge gets even tougher with leather accents, outerwear and accessories. No one wants to copy [kwlink 16011]Kanye West's[/kwlink] leather A-line skirt over leather pants from the 12-12-12 concert, but any fashionable girl would love to be seen in a leather A-line skirt or pair of pants accented with a silky blouse and high leather boots. A long military cut leather coat or cute short jacket looks great in leather, and of course leather boots and purses are always in style.

Colorful Blazers

Corduroy for fall, velvet for winter, cotton for spring and linen for summer -- that's the general rule of blazer fabrics by season. This year, no matter what the fabric, they're all colorful! Gone is last season's nautical look with its red-white-blue color scheme. 2013 is all about colors that pop, accent, catch the eye and flatter your complexion. Berry colors are beautiful for winter, replacing last year's jewel tones, and come spring, we'll see some lovely colors many people would characterize with fruits -- lemon yellow, lime green, cherry red and grape. We're also still seeing a pop of neon from last season which just doesn't want to go away, but that's fine by us!

The Military Look

Military-inspired cuts are back, just as they were in the 80's, but this time, it's more tailored and fitted to flatter the figure. Skinny jeans topped with a short cropped military jacket, a double-breasted jacket or blouse with brass buttons, or a long, lean coat that hits just above the knees really sets up a great look. We're also seeing jackets with a peplum back. Peplum is defined as "A short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, or blouse." It adds a feminine flair to a tailored, masculine cut, which we approve of!

What's more important, staying warm or staying in fashion?

  • Fashion will keep me warm!
  • I don't care what I look like as long as I'm warm.
  • It's about finding the balance.
  • What's cold? I get sun all year long!

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. As someone who has friends who were suicidal, and having been suicidal at one point in my life, It's the other way around. The people who are suicidal don't often realize how selfish taking their own life will be, because of the suffering they're experiencing. More directly to your case, though, anxiety causes control-seeking behavior. The taking of ones' own life can be seen as a way to escape the feelings which hurt us, and so we seek to control the situiation by taking ourselves out of the equation. It's like someone who falls ill when they get anxious at school.They know that falling ill will get them out of school, so someone who is anxious can actually have a physical illness as a result of wanting to escape the situation which makes them feel that way. Suicide works a lot in the same way, it's just that instead of getting out of school, we're getting out of life.  The only difference is that the person who gets out of school gets to experience that relief of the anxiety going away, the return of normal breathing as they're able to finally clam down their body and their mind. They start to feel comfortable again. Someone who commits suicide gets none of this, as they'll never again feel anything. There's no possibility of that feeling of relief, there's no longer a person.  In my view, feeling nothing at all is worse than feeling pain. At least when you can feel, you have a chance of feeling better. Life is too, well, lively...especially in such a time like this. I mean, they're making phones which could make their own power for goodness sakes!

I like to wear pants because they are more comfortable and impossible to show your legs.
