Quick poll: What color skivvies are you wearing today? A new study suggests that your lingerie may reveal a lot about what kind of lover you are, and that an increasing amount of women are choosing nude, which means they've got nothing to hide.
Sales of nude underwear are up 38% this year, and the UK department store Debenham's says it's a result of celebrities flaunting their love of flesh-colored undergarments: "It seems celebrities may be responsible for the change in the nation's taste in lingerie - with Hollywood siren Eva Mendes revealing recently that she feels most sexy in 'either nude or very basic underwear' and pop starlet Katy Perry choosing a simple nude bra and knickers above sexy lace to wear on the front of Rolling Stone magazine." They say 72% of women opt for nude over basic black or white, and according to their bra expert, "A nude or flesh-coloured bra denotes a personality that is natural, easy-going, down-to-earth and

When it comes to your clothes, are you the kind of gal who doesn't mind a bit about their provenance, as long as they're cute, or are you a loyal shopper of goods made here in the USA? A new study says 61% of Americans fall into the latter category!
Thanks to a bad economy and expensive stateside labor, more and more fashion companies are moving their production overseas--but according to a survey conducted by Harris Interactive in conjunction with AdWeek Media (and recently uncovered by our friends over at Styleite), Americans are becoming more conscious of where their goods are manufactured and are more likely to buy a product that's been made here in the USA. Here's what the survey has to say: "In addition to six in 10 Americans having an increased likelihood of purchase when a product is presented as made in America, only 3% are less likely to purchase such a product. The vast majority of Americans who are not prompted to buy products made in

Hemlines on skirts and dresses have been heading south for a few seasons now, but if you're not ready for the sheer versions, I've got a look so cute it will make you want to forget you ever owned a mini (ok, maybe not forget you owned them, but at least pack them away for a while!)
To me, this look is perfection (and just right for the starting-to-get-chilly fall weather). Aside from the fact that she looks incredibly adorable, it works because of her opposite proportions. Instead of choosing a long sweater (which could run the risk of looking well, a little too much like a hobo) she opted for this cropped and fitted, cozy-looking cable knit. And who knows, maybe it's even a layering trick and that skirt is actually a dress! If you're dying to split out of work early to shop for this look like I am, check out these version first:

Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman definitely knows a thing or two about pretty party frocks--the dolls he dresses go to more galas than Tinsley Mortimer and Ivanka Trump combined--so we can't wait to see what he's whipped up in his new collection for Charlotte Russe.
StyleList reports that his new line, called Eric Daman for Charlotte Russe, will consist of party dresses--all under $50!--and fabulous shoes and accessories to go with them. "I really feel I know the Charlotte Russe customer so well," he told the site. "And I felt the need to do party dresses because there is such a void out there for cute, fun, not-superexpensive dresses." Expect up-to-the-minute trends--velvet, one shoulder, sequins, peek-a-boo lace--and "a different shape and size dress for every girl."
The line hits Charlotte Russe stores and charlotterusse.com on October 24. Are you dolls excited to have your own Blair or Serena moment? Which character's style do you most identify

AnneMarie writes to us, "I just transfered to a Catholic high school where I have to wear a uniform every day, and it's stifling my personal style! How can I stick with the dress code (it's a gray pleated skirt with a maroon sweater and a white blouse) but still look cool?" We've got plenty of great ideas:
You may not have as much flexibility to be fabulous as Blair Waldorf did in her Constance Billiard days, but you can still take a few cues from the Gossip Girl! Consider accessories your new best friend, and your best chance at expressing your personal style without Sister Mary Frances getting her panties in a bunch. Let's start from the top and work our way down--hair accessories are always a smart (and conservative!) choice, and you can do anything from a preppy headband a la Blair to a set of sparkly clips with a slightly more youthful feel. Check out the accessories in our very own Glamour closet here.

One thing we pride ourselves on here at Slaves To Fashion is providing you with the most up-to-date coverage of what's going on in the denim world. Whether it's these these uber-short cutoffs, a name-dropping Kanye song, or what Tracey's boyfriend says about jeggings (or jights!), we like to think it keeps you looking chic in your everyday blues. Enter today's outfit idea, A.K.A your daily dose of denim inspiration.
Ok, so I know from what you told me last week, denim doesn't fly for most of you in the office, but the next time you're looking for a new way to wear your destroyed jeans on a date or out on a Saturday night, pair 'em with a complete opposite, like Song Of Style blogger Aimee Song did with this super-sophisticated jacket. Add bright colored heels, loads of jewelry, a cross-body bag, and you've got yourself a funky, super-cute going out look.
And if you're over the whole destroyed denim thing, you're in luck, because Aimee was just

It's hardly news around here that plus size models are starting to gain serious spotlight in the fashion world--look to the Paris runways, the mainstream success of girls like Crystal Renn, or the pages of our magazine each month for proof--but plus size model and America's Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson is wary that it may be a passing fad.
In a new interview with the Huffington Post, Thompson talks about the modeling industry in general ("There is no soul in modeling," she says) and the plus size phenomenon specifically. She's a former straight-size model who quit modeling because she was so hungry, then decided she didn't have to starve herself and became a plus-size model instead.
She went on to become the first plus-size winner of ANTM, but her relationship with the modeling industry hasn't always been a bed of roses. In the interview, she says, "I'd love to introduce myself to people as a model, [but] if I do that, they look me up

Two of the stars of Bravo's new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills--premiering this Thursday, October 14 at 9pm--share bloodlines with Paris and Nicky Hilton, so it should come as little surprise that they love them some glitter and glitz! Get out your sunglasses and see what the new cast wore to last night's premiere party...
That's Kim and Kyle Richards, sisters of Kathy Hilton and aunts to Paris and Nicky, along with fellow castmates Taylor Armstrong (married to a venture capitalist, the youngest Real Housewife); Lisa Vanderpump (owns a restaurant and has a fabulous British accent); Adrienne Maloof (her husband is a plastic surgeon--just sayin'!--and pretty much runs Las Vegas); and Camille Grammer (soon-to-be-ex-wife of Kelsey).
And if this photo is any indication, these ladies have never heard of minimalism, let alone practiced it! Their fashion philosophy seems to be right on par with what you'd expect from a cartoonish exaggeration ofRead More »from The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Prove They Aren't Afraid Of A Little Glitz
