Q. I love wearing denim skirts but hate how the front zipper has a tendency to add bulk and stick out in exactly the area I don’t want any extra fullness. Do you have any suggestions for a short denim skirt with a flat front or another trick to keep my tummy from looking larger in my beloved denim mini looks?

A. I know exactly what you mean, and it can be very frustrating. Your best bet is to seek out a style that does not have a traditional zip-front fly, perhaps one with buttons down the front or an asymmetrical seam, or even a stretch pull-on style. Below are a few atypical options that should solve the issue for you while still giving you the casual cool look of a denim skirt.


Q. I’ve got several holiday parties coming up, so I’m ready to splurge on a great dress! My legs are my best feature, can you recommend some great options for me?


A. You’re in luck! Leg-baring dresses are a huge trend for holiday - and if you’ve got ‘em, flaunt ‘em! Here are some sexy, shimmering, festive dresses to wear all season long:

Q. In the Spring, I saw tons of leopard pencil skirts and didn’t snatch one up!! Now I really want one and can’t seem to find one anywhere. My price point is anything under $60 & I prefer no sequins or metallics.

A. Leopard print pencil skirts offer a chic update on a classic silhouette. We love them paired with feminine blouses, dark blazers and even leather jackets. Here are several affordable options, as well as a super cute leopard print skirt that’s a bit shorter and more flirty than a pencil skirt.


Q. With the cooler weather quickly approaching, I am on the hunt for shoes I can wear during my winter commute. I typically walk about 30 blocks to/from work and need some comfy shoes that keep my feet warm. Unfortunately the shoes I have found so far may be supportive and warm, but they are not cute, or the shoes are cute, but have no support whatsoever. Are there any particular brands or shoe styles I need to look into? I would love your advice!

A. One of this season’s hottest trends also happens to be super comfortable and cozy for winter: shearling and faux fur lined boots. Available in a range of heights and price ranges, the waterproof version of this boot will not only keep your feet dry, but also warm.

Since the shoes you wear to brave the weather and walk 30 blocks might not be the same ones you want to wear all day at the office, we suggest carrying a pair of heels in your work tote to change into (or leaving a pair at work). The boots will also ensure that your pants or tights remain dry.

Below is a selection of warm, comfortable shoes in shearling and non-shearling styles that will be perfect for your winter trek to work:
