Ask Avery: Back to basics

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
What are some of your favorite/best basics? I always struggle to find things that fit the way I want: soft, comfortable and slim. But I’m also not willing to spend $250 on a t-shirt. Where do you find top-notch, inexpensive basics and layering pieces?

This time of year, you can’t afford to leave the house in a silk top and thin leggings — not unless you have the…

Trend spotting: Legging it all out - PHOTOS

blog by Alyssa Hood  •   •  

I would like to give whoever invented leggings a big spandex-y hug and thank them for creating these miracle pants.

Not only are they a fashion staple, evolving seamlessly over the decades to somehow squeeze themselves in with trends both from 1984 and 2014, but they are also a girl’s green light to wear pajamas out of the house.

Now listen closely: just because you have…

Ask Avery: Cat-eye how-to

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
Practice makes perfect? Even after six years of practice, I still have not mastered the winged eyeliner. Any tips?

The cat-eye is simultaneously both the easiest and most difficult trick in the book. It’s basically just a swipe of eyeliner, adding instant glamour, but good luck trying to make your right eye match your left, or vice versa.

The fact of the matter…

Trend spotting: Coats of Color, Part I - PHOTOS

blog by Alyssa Hood  •   •  

As a Buffalo newbie straight off the boat from Boston, I have come to notice in my past few months here that more than a few qualities between the two cities make them scarily similar.

1) The dedication level of the sports fans
2) The cities’ extreme alcohol tolerances
3) The ability to, without fail, wear the color black every. single. day.

I get it—your brain is still so…

Ask Avery: Knock your socks off

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
I keep seeing girls in over-the-knee socks and I think they’re really cute, but I can’t figure out how to wear them without looking like a school girl. How can I wear them in a way that looks cool and not childish?

There’s a fine line between looking edgy and looking like you’re wearing a costume, and over-the-knee socks certainly toe that line — no pun…

Ask Avery: The best of men’s denim

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
I’m in a real predicament. I tore my beautiful Zara jeans and I went to Zara to look for the exact pair and they were nowhere to be found. I shopped around but nothing could match how that pair fit me: regular fit on the waist and slim on my legs, not too dark nor light blue, almost like a blue blue. Where should I get a pair?

Finding your perfect jeans is a…

Ask Avery: New year, new trends

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
I’m ready for some new looks in the new year. What’s in for 2014?

A new year does indeed bring new styles, and 2014 is no different. But instead of out-of-the-box, unwearable trends that only look good on the runway, this year is all about taking staples or previous trends and tweaking them. Consider the new year a fresh start, for yourself and your sense of…

Ask Avery: New Year’s in neutrals

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,
I have fun New Year’s Eve plans this year but nothing to wear. I pretty much live in black and neutrals and I’m not usually into accessorizing, but since it’s a special night I’m trying to liven things up. How do I look my age — early 30s — while looking festive and fun?

I have to admit, I hate pretty much everything about New Year’s Eve. But when it…

Ask Avery: Black-tie beautiful

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Dear Avery,

I’ve been invited to a black-tie event right after Christmas. I’ve never gone to something like this before and I have no idea what to wear. Do I have to wear a long gown? And how can I look festive? By the way, I’m in my late 20s.

When it comes to black tie, guys have it easy — they just throw on a tuxedo and they’re ready to go. But your ensemble presents…

Ask Avery: Holiday Gift Guide — Under $25

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

If your finances are anything like mine, there’s no way you’re dropping dollars this Christmas.

As great as it would be to buy everyone on your list an expensive gift, sometimes your bank account just won’t permit it — which is why you need a few solid options that are inexpensive without being cheap.

The thing to keep in mind if you’re going the $25-and-under route…
