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!

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
