Q: I hate shopping for jeans, but need a new pair. What are the best styles to look for? A: Shopping for jeans can be quite a headache. We’re always looking for a pair that is stylish, versatile and comfortable. The answer? Straight-leg jeans in a dark wash. This style fits most people well, and the darker wash allows you to dress them up or down. Check out Lush Boutique at Eton Chagrin Boulevard, Girl Next Door in Rocky River and Forever 21. These stores have a great selection of jeans and helpful sales teams to ease your denim shopping anxiety.
Q: I need a new winter coat. What style would work best for most people? A: If you had to pick only one from many fabulous styles and textures available, I would suggest a classic single-breasted, three-button coat in a wool-cashmere blend that falls right above the knee. This coat can be fashionably worn throughout the winter with denim jeans, trousers or cocktail dresses. Selecting a timeless color such as camel, winter white or black will allow you to wear this coat for years to come. But if you want something more eye-catching, try a bold color such as emerald green, red or plum to turn a classic coat into a statement piece.
