The glorious 20’s will forever remind us of The Great Gatsby. It was a time for opulence, glitter, beading, dancing and singing. And it was so cool that we keep recreating it and adding our style to it because fashion keeps coming back to all the resources this decade gave us for clothing.
Of course, when you think about the 1920’s your mind goes straight to the flapper dress. The fringe and the sparkling details catch our eye from the very beginning, and again, fashion has been trying to emulate that same effect every now and then for decades. However, one of the most important things we have to consider when it comes to the 20’s is the silhouette. Nothing fitted, just boxy dresses that were more relaxed and fun. Why? Because in that time the ideal body didn’t have a small waist like we all dream about now, and dresses wanted to highlight another feature. Also, there’s life beyond the fringe, and 1920’s have a lot more to offer.
If you’re thinking about a vintage dress, this is a great decade to look into. You would look fabulous at parties and events without much effort.
Unique Vintage Women’s Del Rio Beaded Flapper Gatsby Dress
This is what we mean when we say there’s life beyond the fringe. The 1920’s had a preference for ‘midi’ length (actually, every decade before the 60’s did) and that calls for more loose fittings. One brand that’s particularly good at dressing you like you live in some other time it’s Unique Vintage, and you’ll confirm that through this post. This model is 100% nylon, and the biggest feature is its intricate hand beaded that will definitely stand out in any situation. One good thing about wearing vintage and retro clothing these days is that the pieces come with a modern edge. This dress, for example, has a little bit of a stretch quality, which makes it fitted. Two important things to have in mind: you can only wash this by hand if you want to last more than one party, and the slip you see in the photo is sold separately.
Women’s Victoria True Romance Vintage Style Party Dress in Smoke
The 20’s come with tulle, as well, as we can see on this party dress made by Nataya, another brand specialized in vintage-inspired clothing. As much as we mentioned that the ‘midi’ length was the favorite on this decade, a big evening called for long dresses, and this is a great choice even for our days. Imagine it for a ball or a wedding, with modern accessories… you’ll nail it! This dress biggest attractive are the ½ sleeves, these play with the concept of see-through and look absolutely great. The square necklines make it perfect for pairing both with earrings or a cute pendant, which will add sparkle to your outfit.
1920s “The Bosley” Silver Beaded Flapper with Beaded Fringe Dress
Here we go, we got to the fringes. This Unique Vintage dress is everything you think about when you think of the 20’s. First of all, it screams ‘Great Gatsby’ and second, it has all these amazing details that you are going to love. The drop waist is the biggest feature because it pretty much sticks to the original concept of the flapper dress. After you realize that, you can concentrate on the layers of intricate beading and fringe work that has been done here. The sleeveless silhouette makes it a fresh piece that you can pair with a jacket for your next cocktail party. With such an intricately made dress you won’t have to worry about wearing any other showstopper accessory.
Unique Vintage Plus Size 1920s Black Beaded Sleeveless Hawkins Flapper Dress
Why do we need to include another fringed dress in our selection? Easy, this one has two features that make it stand of the pile. First, it’s basically the only fringe and beaded dress on the list that doesn’t require a separate slip to wear it down to perfection and second, and most important, it’s made exclusively for plus sizes. This baby goes all the way from 2X plus to 4X plus, and it features all the beauty of beading dress, combined with a perfect lining that includes some stretch (isn’t that incredible?), which will help to keep everything in place. And if you’re in the group that gets worried over little details, breathe in peace: this one has a clean-side zipper that will go unnoticeable.
Unique Vintage 1920s Beaded Black La Plante Chiffon Flapper Dress
The thing with beading is that it might be too much for some people. Not for me, but for some girls out there. And when you want to have a little sparkle with your 1920 inspired dress you can find it on this solution. Unique Vintage knows that is not always about the beading, but also about the quality of the fabric and a very nice silhouette. This dress, for example, features a drop waist fitting that goes perfectly with its ‘midi’ length. On the top part you can find beaded details that will highlight the straps and the center detail, pair with a see-through fabric. This material is very light, but you have to keep in mind that it doesn’t stretch at all.
1920’s Style Gatsby Tunic Top Evening Embellish Shift Dress Vintage Dress
From a very light and discrete dress to a piece that will tell everyone you’re coming from a mile distance. This dress is made out polyester and chiffon, a combination that makes it light but strong enough to support the hand embroidery that it comes with. This option is great for a night party, in which you want to catch everyone’s attention. Trust me, you will get it. You have to take into consideration the fact that this dress can be a little heavier than anything in your closet, due to the embroidery weight. Also, consider that it goes from 02 to 26 in sizing, but the length is the same for all the options (90.53 cms or 35 inches).
1920’s Style Gatsby Tunic Top Evening Embellish Shift Dress Vintage Dress
Sometimes we think about getting a dress that will look expensive but at the same time not having to spend all our money on it, especially if it’s not a dress we’re going to wear on a regular basis. And as much as we love beading, we have to admit that we can’t always afford it. That’s why we have options like this Sakhee dress, with a very beautiful beading that is not excessive but it doesn’t leave you thinking about wanting more. This evening chiffon dress has a great embroidery design and a tunic silhouette, but you will notice that is a little shorter than all the other options, which makes it flirty and fun.
This summer, rompers are holding their position as the best and coolest clothes for the season. They are so adorable and fun to wear, and the right one can make your body look much better. Also, rompers are so easy to put on, and they are girls best friends on summer vacations because they don’t take too much space in the suitcase. When you have a romper, you have the whole outfit. I just love them because of that!
Then again there are so many mistakes that you can make if you don’t know what fits you well. They can make you look like you are in your pyjamas, or like a child if the fit is wrong. But don’t worry, we are here to help you.
If you are curvy, and your hips are wider than your shoulders, you have a pear shaped body. When you know your body type, you can easily decide what fits you well, and what kinds of clothes are making a balanced look.
Roxy Juniors Spin Sail Sleeveless Romper
The first rule about choosing the right romper for the pear shaped body is to try to find rompers that are darker at the bottom. So this one is a school example what to buy to make a perfect balance.
This design is very cool and versatile, so it can be worn on many occasions such as brunch, party or just for a walk by the seashore.
Black and white are not even colours, so you can match them with all of the colours of this world.
For a clean look, just forget accessories and combine this romper with a cute clutch.
The back of this romper is sexy, there is only one strap on the back, so you can put your hair up and be the main star of the street.
Angie Women’s Bell Sleeve Romper
Another good advice for women who have wide hips is to put attention on the upper part of the body. With this Angie bell sleeve romper, the attention will be on the sleeves and on the neck.
Interesting print of this romper will make you look youthful and free-spirited, so it is a great pick for the beach. I would wear it with leather ankle wrap sandals. They can be combined with mules if you want to follow trends.
This fabric is very light and there is a drawstring on the waist so it can be adjusted to fit you even after a big juicy meal.
Sanctuary Clothing Women’s Soft Surplus Tencel Romper
Jeans is a huge trend this season. Yes dear, I know, again!
Maybe we can thank Rihanna and her music video “4,5 seconds” for this. I am not bothered with that, I just love jeans, and if you are also a fan of this fabric you should definitely buy this romper!
Ok, actually this romper is not made of denim, it is 100% Lyocell, wich makes it much lighter, and suitable for spring and summer. You can unbutton the upper part when you are feeling hot, and twist your sleeves.
It has interesting upper part with pockets, just like jeans shirt. Excellent for girls with flat chests. This washed out jeans romper go well with sandals, but also with sneakers, and I love wearing sneakers in the summer because I think I have ugly toes. I hope that you don’t have the same problem.
NY Collection Women’s 3/4 Sleeve Printed Romper
Again, our aim is to focus the attention of a viewer on your face and your upper body. This pink line on the fabric is very helpful.
The stripes on this fabric are making you look taller, but it might not suit well to bigger girls. Tie waist makes this romper adjustable, and 3/4 sleeve are so cool. You can add a nice watch on your wrist, or some interesting bracelets. The shorts is free flowing and roomy, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Combine it with pink shoes, if you are so lucky to have them, or use the safe ones – nude heels.
If you are not a party girl, this romper will be a good companion if you match it with flat sandals and hat.
BCBGeneration Women’s Long-Sleeve Romper with Lace Neck
You will get pure elegance with this lace collar and perfect shape of this romper. Black covers everything perfectly, makes you look so sophisticated even tough you are wearing a romper. Large cutout at centre front will put attention on your chests and not on your wide hips, and that is how you will profit from this look.
You will save your money on jewellery because this one doesn’t need any. Ok, maybe small effective earrings. If your legs aren’t as long as this, you have to wear heals, and it should be fine ankle heels just like in the picture.
Match clutch and earrings, or lipstick and clutch and you are ready to enjoy in compliments at every party this spring!
Guess Women’s Short Sleeve Anja Belted Faux Suede Romper
On this romper secret agent vibes are strong! Navy blue colour, zipper closure and detachable belt reminded me of all those female secret agents. They are smart and they only wear clothes that fit perfectly! So should you.
Reviewers said that this faux suede material is great, and some of them have bought this romper in both colours. Belt will make you look thinner, and short sleeves will make you look ready for work.
Navy blue is great with red, white and black so you can add those colours to this style.
And don’t forget your confidence, and smile. Those are essential accessories to every outfit!
As women, we tend to carry very many things inside our bags. This means that we always need handbags that are both functional but also allow us to organize our stuff in an orderly manner so that we can easily find them when we need them. And while there are over a thousand different handbag designs available in the market, not every handbag is ideal for organizing your stuff.
Because we always have things to carry around such as keys, notebooks, pens, makeup stuff – foundation and powder and brushes – having a handbag that can let you organize your stuff is definitely a plus. Having a designer bag is good, having a functional bag is better but having a handbag for organizations is the best decision you could ever make regarding your handbags.

So, if you can almost always never locate your keys or business card holder and have to pour everything from your bag, you my sister, need a handbag for organization.

A good organizer handbag will have the different compartments that can allow you to safely put in all your stuff in an orderly manner.
If possible, ensure that you nicely arrange your belongings the night before you go to work to avoid being scattered. Remember, there is a purpose your bag is meant to serve.

Also, consider your commute to and from work as well.

#2 Acevog Women’s Double-Breasted Trench Coat
The Acevog Women’s double-breasted trench coat is surely one of the more professional-looking coats in our gallery. We believe it is one of the few types of coats that a woman can go straight out of cold weather and into a working environment and blend right in. This trench coat is simply something else. Like many others, it’s a slim-fit, but it has all the assertiveness you’ll ever need. It gives off a driven/motivated individual type of feel.

These include gray, black, navy-blue, army-green, and dark-gray. Even with the variations, we strongly feel that many scarfs with blend right with them. This is a great trench coat to flex your creative abilities on.
#3 Zerlar Open Front Trench Coat
This trench coast is one of the more uniquely styled and textured ones on the market. While the button and pocket placements differentiate, the design and texture are remarkable. The Zerlar Outwear Waterfall cardigan sweater can stir up a slew of different opinions.
The professionalism and assertiveness surely tones down, but comfort excels. The coat fits loose while also feeling very soft at the same time. The sleeves will grant your arms breathing room and warmth and provides a bit of natural style with it’s cuffs.
There’s also a fair amount of pocket space in this sweater, great for accessory storage.

If you value comfort and warmth a bit more than style, this shoe definitely fits. A nice cold-dry wash with fabric softener will have this garment hot and ready to-go whenever it needs to be cleaned.
#4 Double Breasted Trench Coat from Plus4U
The plus4u womens double-breasted trench coat is among one of our favorites. Why do you ask? well, for many reasons. Let’s start out with the wide range of color options that are available with it. Choose between burgundy, black, brown, grey, charcoal, red, teal, and navy coloring for whatever mood you’re in for the day.
This coat has nice, fitted sleeves, a crispy collar design, and a warm hood for the not-so-warm precipitation. It’s fashionable, recreational, and professional all in one.
The plus4u trench coat is made up of 65% cotton and 35% polyester. This means you may want to air or hang dry it if you wish for it to remain its modern size.

With 8 frontal button and front pockets that fit snug, this thing will definitely keep you warm and secure in chillier weather.
With a large variety of colors, you could have one for different kinds of environments. We highly recommend that this product is machine washed with cold water and no bleach. All too often, coats become ruined because this isn’t addressed.

Columbia Women’s Lay ’D’ Down Jacket
“This coat is amazing” – Actual Review
We thought we had seen popular winter jackets, but when we came across this Columbia’s “Lay ‘D’ Down” we were blown away! It essentially jumped to the top of our list. It seems that keeping it simple works best when it comes to a comfortable, warm and cozy winter weather coat.
The jacket is extremely warm even if harsh climates of Michigan and Utah. One customer remarked that she wore it in -20 Degree Fahrenheit with only a t-shirt! The down filling and scientifically tested material/fibers of Columbia brand coats insures the best protection possible against the cold.
It’s also extremely stylish. As shown above it is not bulky at all, and the short length gives optimal flexibility and maneuverability when on the move. A perfect jacket for a quick run to the store or a long hike in the woods, it seems Columbia has found the best of both worlds with this one.

If you are truly serious about improving your fashion game, then one of the things you need to do is develop a look that is truly your own. In other words, you need to figure out a foolproof look that you can always go to. This should give you a template of things you should wear while still giving you a myriad of options when it comes to possible variations.
Don’t know where to start? Well, a good place to do so would be to picture the ensembles that make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Alternatively, you can also seek help from people close to you by asking them which outfits you look great in. That being said, if you ever come across an article of clothing that you need to talk yourself into, then chances are you should probably skip that one.
When putting together your look, be sure to avoid overmatching different articles of clothing. Instead, you should go with different colors that help enhance one another. A simple look at the color wheel should help you choose the items most suited to each other.
What would be of women’s life without our purses? No, really… can you imagine going through life without not having a cute place to put all your stuff and that also speaks about your style and preferences? Because I simply can’t do it.
A handbag is one of the most important things in women’s wardrobe and it certainly becomes an investment, because you don’t want to be shopping for one every single day. And of course you’ve got to own different handbags, but the best thing you can do is try to have a few that go with everything and are big enough to fit your whole life in there. Well, basically your everyday life. The only bad thing is that not all of us can afford a real leather handbag, which would be the best decision. But a lot of brands have great offer in other materials that look like leather for a very good price, and there are even some vegan options out there. So let’s check them out.
A X Armani Exchange Petite Faux Leather Bucket Bag
Asides from the all-time favorite, the tote, there are some bag models that are huge trends this season. That’s why I present to you: the bucket bag. And of course, you can find very good faux leather options, such as this taupe beauty from A X Armani Exchange. This is a petite size bag, so don’t expect to fit your laptop on this one. However, it’s made entirely out of polyurethane, to make it really light. The interior has a synthetic lining and the closure is drawstring, like our backpacks from the past. And of course, it features the shoulder strap that you can use on one side or cross body style.
ZAC Zac Posen Womens Eartha Belted Shopper
A tote bag is definitely one of the best purchases you’re going to do in your life, because this bag can fit everything and works for anything. You can take it to the airport, to the office, to the weekend… and the list keeps growing. And if on top of that you get a black tote, you will have half of your closet covered. ZAC Zac Posen is the affordable line of this famous designer, who’s being doing a great work with fancy-looking purses. This one features strap accents and metal hardware details, as well as a fat shoulder strap. The large slip pocket in the back is really useful, and the interior is as spacious as a bag can be. It also includes an inside larges slip pocket. This is for sure the bag you need.
Kate Spade Faye Drive Hallie Elisabeth Crossbody Tote Bag
I know I’m not the only one who loves dressing with neutral colors and then have a bright pop with the accessories. And that’s exactly what this Kate Spade bag will do for your outfit, brighten it up to the limits of your imagination. Don’t let the photo fool you, the size is pretty amazing: approximate dimensions are 11.7” height x 12.5” wide, with a 9” drop length. It features a soft pebbled cowhide with matching trim and 14 karat gold pleated hardware for that rich look we’re all going for. It opens at the top with a zipper and on the interior there’s a faux nappa lamb lining and an interior zip pocket. The icing on the cake is the protective metal feet, in case you don’t want your bag to touch the floor (I don’t think any of us do).
Sam Edelman Sienna
Who says you can’t have an ‘exotic’ bag that is not made out of leather and still look like a million dollars? At Sam Edelman the certainly know we need variety on our purse collection, so they came up with this incredible cross body with contrasting faux leather, combining faux python and suede. Although is not exactly a bag you can carry everywhere, is very comfortable for relaxed occasions and light errands around town. The lining is made out of cotton, which guarantees a very light bag, something you should always be thankful for. On the inside you will find a back wall zip pocket and a side slip pocket, to keep things organized.
Betsey Johnson Satchel with Patches
If we’re talking about brands who do an excellent job, we have to mention Betsey Johnson and their incredible playful bags. Can you believe this one actually comes with permanent adhesive patches? Because I’ve never heard of something more fun than that! This bag is a great deal with stripes and gold-tone hardware and logo. The interior Interior features floral lining, 1 zip pocket, 1 slip pocket and 1 key finder; triple compartment design with center zip compartment and 2 open compartments. Also, you can carry it in two different ways: with the double handle or cross body style, that last strap you can remove it anytime you want.
Elliott Lucca Jules Totes
Florals are also a big thing for leather goods, including those ones that are not entirely made out of leather. This Elliott Lucca bag has a polyester and faux leather combination, which gives the bag a light weight and adaptable form. The lining is also synthetic, and the closure is magnetic, so you don’t have to spend time closing a zipper. On the inside you will find two interior slips and one interior zip. The shoulder strap makes it very convenient to carry around and if you need more colors by any chance, you have more options, all with beautiful floral themes.
GUESS Kingsley Large Zip Around Wallet
Even if we choose to have faux leather for environmental reasons, that doesn’t have to end with us not carrying around nice bags. Take this Guess bag, for example, and tell me you can see the different in a picture. This is Saffiano faux leather and it comes with two 7-3/4” drop handles. The pale shiny gold-tone hardware gives the whole piece a very elegant looking, with 4G logo charm and signature lettering. On the inside, you will find a triple compartment design with center magnetic snap closure and two zip closures. Definitely a great option for your everyday business, and this bag will totally catch people’s eyes.

And you have to admit, this bag looks very New York and of course, very, very chic. The color is everything but casual and it will drag everyone’s attention, so you’re half way there. The fabric is polyvinyl chloride, which gives us an affordable option to wear every day. The lining is made out of polyester and if you thought you could get this for a nice price, I’ve saved the best for last: the bag comes with a removable pouch that you can even use separately or even for keeping this on the inside organized, such as makeup or other small things.
LAUREN Ralph Lauren Paley Lauryn Bag-in-Bag Tote – Black window
One of the reasons everyone should also live totes for is that, lately, this beauties have been trying to give us something more. And Ralph Lauren’s affordable line thought very wisely that ‘something’ more means an extra bag. In this case, a removable zip pouch that you can use as a separate bag, as I do all the time. This graphic-print tote is perfect for carrying all your essentials, because it has a roomy interior and beautiful details, such as sleek polished hardware. It also has an exterior zip pocket for everything you need and double straps for more comfort. Measures are 11-1/2” wide and 12” height, so it’s pretty much a bag to fit everything.

Getting dressed and putting together an outfit is simply one of those routines that would be impossible to avoid, no matter your line of work. However, despite being an everyday occurrence, it can still often feel frustrating. The feeling of not having anything to wear is a daily conundrum that most of us have to go through every morning. Luckily, we are here to make things a bit easier for you. Take note that the following tips come directly from fashion experts, retailers, and industry leaders so be sure to take note.
Pay attention to proportions
As common sense would tell you, you want your outfit to highlight the parts you are proud of while also taking attention away from the parts you wish to downplay. Of course, that can be a bit tricky but it is certainly possible if you know what you are doing. For instance, you can opt to add opposite volume to even out your proportions. It is all about redirecting the eyes.
Most people forget that being comfortable in your own skin is a crucial component to dressing well. To look fashionable is to dress in age-appropriate ways. This means adapting to the latest fashion trends while not looking kitsch.

Mining through tons of different selections, evaluating on a plethora of factors like fabric and materials, water resistance, insulation and warmth, as well as customer feedback, we’ve come down to a final selection.
This is a hand selected list of our favorite 7 jackets, all high quality and from premium manufacturers and high scorers on all of our evaluation factors. Now without further ado, lets get to it!
Evapouration from Columbia Men’s Sportswear
Our #1 pick this year is comes from a heralded brand in the outdoor wear space, Columbia. While known more for their winter wear, many of the same variables are carried over to make some exceptional rain wear. It’s got more features and factors than some other Columbia jackets, including proprietary EVAP advanced evaporation panels.
Omni-tech waterproof, it can provide all the protection you need from the cold sting of rain. However it also includes underarm venting to allow for ventilation during times of high heat or activity (i.e. running, jogging, biking, etc).
It’s pockets zip close to help secure you valuable items like cell phones, wallets, keys, etc. It also keeps these items behind the same water resistant materials, helping to shield them from potentially damaging water.
Earning consistently positive ratings from customers, our staff has also awarded this model the #1 pick of the year. It scores extremely high among all of our evaluation factors. Take a look:
- Comfy Fit: 10/10

- Water Resistance: 10/10
- Customer Feedback: Outstanding!
- Price: $$ – $$$$
Dubliner Rain Jacket from Helly Hansen
This is definitely on of our top picks this year, and for good reason. It performed well on all of our factors, even the common underperformers (like material and fit). Made out of 100% Polyester, this is definitely a winner over the more common Nylon (which is less expensive, but ultimately draws the ire of those who purchase it due to its light/flimsy nature and tendency to seep through with water). Polyester performs much better than Nylon in these regards.
As for size and fit, it tend to fit as expected (unlike some other jackets that might be too large or too small). So if you are an extra large, go ahead and order an extra large.
The fit is loose but not baggy, allowing for freedom of movement, and fully sealed for protection from wind, cold, and of course, rain.
High scores on all our factors! See below:
- Comfy Fit: 10/10
- Dry: 9/10
- Water Resistance: 9/10
- Customer Feedback: Outstanding!
- Price: $$$
Men’s Resolve Jacket from The North Face
A legendary brand in outdoors wear, The North Face began it’s life providing apparel for moutain climbers that scaled the likes of Everest and K2! They bring that same high level of quality to the consumer market with this excellent rain slicker called “Men’s Resolve”. Using many of the same principles from their famous winter coats (such as the front Velcro closure over the zipper and elastic over the wrists), this coat provides excellent protection against the elements, while of course being lighter and slimmer than their heavy winter coats.
Customers have very few complaints about the “Resolve”, and have included praises that it protects against both the wind and the rain (not just one or the other), and it can be comfortable in temperatures down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit (any lower than that and its recommended to pair with a sweater underneath).
Overall this one is real winner, waterproof, “weatherproof”, lightweight and the high quality that is come to be expected from The North Face, we doubt you will be disappointed with this selection.
Scores high across the board too!
- Comfy Fit: 9/10
- Dry: 10/10
- Water Resistance: 10/10
- Customer Feedback: Outstanding!
- Price: $$$
Breathable and Waterproof Rain Jacket from Paradox
A little break from the ordinary for this one. As you can see from the picture its not your usual rain coat, and looks more like a lab coat or hazmat suit than a standard windbreaker, but it checks off all the boxes and gets some great customer feedback, so it’s made our final list. Also not quite pictured is the hood (which is does indeed include). Fully waterproof and including vents for breathability, it a perfect selection for high intensity outdoors activity in the rain, such as running or biking.
Form fitting and coming with Velcro cuffs and adjustable waste, the 80/20 Nylon/Poly mixture gives a good feel and an excellent protection against the elements. It is coated with a water repellent finish to keep you both dry and warm.
In the case of rain in high temperatures, the breathable and light constructions provides a perfect match. One customer commented on her trip to Vietnam where it was both 90 degrees and rainy, and this provided just the right type of protection she needed from those elements.
Scoring very strong on our scales, this is a great pick for the outdoors adventurers:
- Comfy Fit: 10/10
- Warm: Combine with sweater.
- Dry: 9/10
- Water Resistance: 10/10
- Customer Feedback: Very Positive!
- Price: $$
Watertight II from Columbia
Just as The North Face is a heralded brand when it comes to winter weather wear, so is Columbia. For decades they have been providing some of the most rugged winter gear available on the market. This type of protection is helpful to have in the form of raincoats, and the factors that perform so well in winter coats carry over excellently. We highly doubt you will be disappointed with this choice.
Besides the brass tacks of comfort, warmth and protection from the elements, this also has some great style choices. We’ve counted 19 different colors available for this particular model, so if you want a jacket that will match your boots, iPhone case or new hair dye, this is the perfect choice for you.
Super light, this particular model is great for spring time or early fall rain showers. You’ll need to pair with a sweater for the colder weather (not unlike many other models listed here). Plenty of pockets to fit your cell phone (as one reviewer put it, it fits a iPhone 6S with plenty of room to spare).
Tons of positive feedback from customers, and scores very high on all of our scales, take a look:
- Comfy Fit: 9/10
- Warm: Combine with sweater.
- Dry: 9/10
- Water Resistance: 8/10
- Customer Feedback: Very Positive!

PVC Raincoat from 32 Degrees
For those that are looking for an inexpensive option that will keep you dry in a heavy rain storm, this is a great pick for you. The PVC Weatherproof coat from 32 Degrees uses the unusual material of Polyvinyl Chloride (as opposed to the more common Polyester or Nylon), to make a waterproof coat that is light and perfect from those very rainy days.
Not meant to keep you warm, this will need to be combined with some additional layers if you are facing a very cold day. However its perfect for a light jacket that is comfortable to wear (doesn’t stick to the skin like some other unlined jackets).
These are sized appropriately (so if you are normally a large you can order a large). Very competitive in pricing, this makes a great buy if you need to pick up jackets for several children, or to be used as gifts.
Scoring very solidly on our evaluation factors, this item makes a perfect pick for those not too concerned about the very cold, but still want to stay dry during epic rainstorms.
- Comfy Fit: 8/10
- Warm: No, very light. Combine with sweater if necessary.
- Dry: 10/10
- Water Resistance: 8/10
- Customer Feedback: Very Positive!
- Price: $
Men’s Venture from The North Face
Another item from The North Face made it on our list. You can expect this one to be as high quality as any available rain slick on the market. Waterproof, seam sealed as well as breathable, this one checks off all the boxes when it comes to a reliable jacket. It’s even got the chin lining that will keep help protect your face from high winds.
It also comes in literally dozens of different colors and styles, so its perfect if you want something more than just the standard black/grey. What’s life without a little color in it anyway?
We particularly liked the Duck Green and Shady Blue Heather varieties, but you can choose your own based on your own personal color palette. The “Venture” is sure to make a great accompaniment to any fall or spring wardrobe.
- Comfy Fit: 10/10
- Warm: Moderate, somewhat light. Combine with sweater if necessary.
- Dry: 10/10
- Water Resistance: 10/10
- Customer Feedback: Very Positive!

Distressed jeans are the in thing right now, specifically because they look well worn out. Distressed clothing is any garment that is made to look dirty or ripped during the manufacturing process.
For some reason, distressed jeans have made their way back into our closets of late, probably because they look stylish, cool and casual at the same time.
Unlike normal jeans, distressed jeans are damaged in such a way that they look aged and worn out. The damage can be caused by abrading them with friction, chemicals or even bleach (for the classic faded designs). New jeans that look distressed are usually bleached to give the trademark faded look. The bleaching can cover the entire garment, or may be applied to cover part of the legs. The chemicals and bleach also serve to weaken the fabric, giving the fragile, threadbare appearance. The worn outlook can also be achieved through Stonewashing.
Tears, Holes and Rips
As is the rage today, distressed jeans can come with holes and tears to add to the old, worn out look. The holes and shreds vary, with some brands preferring slight cuts and rips, and some designers going all the way to tear the garments up. The edges are not seamed, allowing them to continue fraying. The bottom hems can also be abrased with sandpaper to make it look more worn out.
Home-made distressed jeans
If you have a thing for crafts and embroidery, then you can also make yourself a pair of distressed jeans from regular jeans in your closet. If you have some ancient jeans that you want to give a new life to, then distressing them is the perfect way to give them a new lease of life.
You will need bleaching solution that will be used to fade and weaken the denim fiber. You can use chalk to mark the areas you want to add rips and holes, then using small scissors, make holes at the areas you had previously marked with chalk. You can use a seam ripper to make crosswise tears at the knees and hem.
Make sure you slip on the jeans before beginning the process so that you can have the best view of where you’d like to create the holes and tears. After marking the spots, insert an old magazine into the leg to prevent the scissors (or a box cutter if you have one) from cutting through both layers of fabric.
If you are using a box cutter, slice through the fabric in horizontal strips. They don’t have to be equal in length. You can opt for two strips, each about two inches from the knee for the classic ripped look. Use short slicing motions, creating longer slices as you approach the mid-section of the area you want to slice through then end with short slicing motions. This gives a more natural look.
You can now use tweezers to fray out the ripped area. Pull out the vertical threads to leave horizontal threads hanging onto the fabric. You can skip alternate strips for a more defined look. Allow the frayed edges to remain as they are, or you can use sandpaper to braise the bottom hem. The result is a pair of distressed jeans that will look trendy as part of a casual outfit.
For most women, a handbag is the most important accessory that they can’t leave the house without. While some women have two or three multifunctional bags, there are others with over ten handbags. However, when it comes to work, it’s always important to have a suitable handbag that you can carry to work – one which has the capacity to fit all the essentials you need for work while still giving you that classy million-dollar look.
Because handbags for work rarely change – usually the same one week in week out – it’s essential that you buy a work handbag that you will really love and is durable for when you have to fill it with unnecessary stuff that you don’t even use but have to carry around. While it’s important to choose a good-looking bag that helps us look good, a pretty bag shouldn’t top your list of things to consider.
Factoring in practical features that are bound to make your bag fit the purchase purpose should be your first consideration. The time it takes to get to work is another factor that you should consider when buying a bag. If you have a long commute and need to carry lots of essentials, a bag with thin straps won’t last you a year. Same rule applies to you if you carry a laptop to work. Choosing a bag with a laptop compartment means that your device is protected and that it can carry the weight.
If you are shopping around for a work handbag, here are some of the best handbags for work that you can buy.
The Regent Tote Handbag

When buying a work handbag, the best design won’t cut unless it’s functional. Most times, we leave the house in a rush and want something that can allow us to throw all manner of things inside and get to the office on time. As such, always look at the amount of space that the handbag you want to buy for work has and see whether it will fit everything you need always to carry to work.

One of the most difficult things of being a woman is trying to find flattering clothes all the time. As every type of body is different, girls often come across trends or pieces they don’t know how to wear or if they can really work with them.
Among all the body types we can find in women, one of the most popular is the pear-shaped. This kind of figure is present in women with hips wider than their shoulders, which gives a perfect name for the category. Being the hips the most prominent part here, the key task is giving the body a little balance. In that line, things like accentuating the waist, and highlighting the top parts (shoulders, back), are perfect. Which dresses can make you use to rock your beautiful body? Let’s see some options!

One of the pieces that say ‘feminine’ like no other one I the skirt. There are so many types of them, but they all have one thing in common: it is their duty to highlight our best features, make us look sexy, feminine and delicate and, if we pick the right one, even hide those things we don’t want to show at all.
Between our favorite silhouettes, there’s also the possibility to choose among a very wide spectrum of fabrics. And among those fabrics, one of our favorites is definitely leather. I know, is not something you can wear any time of the year, however, is very useful when the temperature goes down and you still want to look sexy but keep your legs warm. Of course, another thing that we have to keep in mind is the fact that leather is not the most affordable fabric and also, not the most eco-friendly out there. That’s why we have options like faux leather, pieces that create the same effect but we can get at a fraction of the cost and, on top of everything, we help the planet a little bit, something we should all do more once in a while. So, let’s take a peek at some of the options that will take your skirt game to the next level:
Rebecca Taylor Women’s Faux Leather Pleat Skirt
One of the most important things you have to take into consideration when buying a faux leather skirt is that the fabric is so good that it looks like leather without been too shiny. After that first requirement, you can start choosing your favorite silhouette and color, like this beautiful navy blue from Rebecca Taylor. This pleated skirt is made out of 85% polyester and 15% other fabrics. As for the lining, is 100% polyester. The great feature on this skirt are the allover accordion pleats, and also the banded waist. Costumers’ reviews on this skirt are so great, they’re flying out of the window, they’re only a few of them in stock, but it’s worth the hustle. And as we recommend with all our delicate pieces, try to take it dry cleaning to ensure it lasts longer.
Liverpool Jeans Company Women’s Cecil Coated Ponte Pull-On Pencil Skirt
Is there anything that says ‘power’ louder than a pencil skirt? I don’t think so, and neither do the majority of women doing business in the world. And now imagine not only a pencil skirt, but a leather looking pencil skirt. That’s power 10 times bigger. And that’s exactly what this Liverpool Jeans skirt says loud and clear. Made out of 62% Rayon, 33% Nylon and 5% Spandex, this beauty comes in two great but unusual colors for ‘leather’: grey and taupe. It’s a pull-on ponte skirt that will be handy when it’s time to run to your office and it has faux-front pockets and an exposed side zipper. To give it a more casual look, you have clean pockets on the back and a vented back hemline. Pair it with a cute top and killer heels, and there you have it, a great outfit for days.
Junarose Women’s Faux Leather Wrap Skirt
And as we’re taking a look as pencil skirts, we might do a very good task looking at black pencil skirts. And if you’re thinking it would be a little bit too boring (which is not), think again and do it about details. This Junarose skirt is just that, a beautiful classic piece with a fun twist. It’s 100% made out of polyurethane and also comes with a lining, something you should be thankful for when we talk about leather, even faux leather, because it helps the fabric to stay away from your skin as much as possible. The design is wrap style, a silhouette that’s flattering to almost every woman out there and the length is above the knee, perfect for the office. And the fun part, the zipper details that will give you that edge we all need.
BAILEY 44 Womens Faux Leather Diagonal Seam SEDGWICK Skirt
But, of course, we can’t discuss leather (or, in this case, faux leather), without talking about black leather, which is basically the most classic of them all. This A-line skirt is hip and youthful, besides perfect for almost any occasion on your list. Its best feature is the distinctive diagonal seams, which create fullness and movement, with a great length. The fabric is 70% polyurethane and 30& nylon, which gives it a little bit more shine but still in the right amount. To continue with the young vibe, it has an exposed zip and raw cut hem, something that will allow the skirt to move and feel super flirty and confident.

This specific model, from BCBGMAXAZRIA has an eye-catching color, beautiful burgundy, and vertical seaming that elongates the lines of the piece and of course, it adds more centimeters to your figure. Well, at least visually. It’s made out of 100% polyurethane, with a matte shade that will look classy and fancy. It has a fixed natural waist and hidden back zipper, so you can take it to your more elegant occasions. The biggest recommendation on this one is to hand-wash it, you don’t want to ruin anything on your machine.
Karen Kane Women’s Fringe Pencil Skirt
We already talked about fringes and the big trend we’re going through. However, not everyone has the edge to go out with a full fringed skirt and that’s not a reason why the trend should not be available for them. This Karen Kane skirt is the perfect option for those girls who would only like one little taste of the trend, with the good things of a classic. This faux leather skirt is made out of 55% polyurethane and 45% polyester. As for the contrast, is 60% lyocell, 34% nylon and 6% spandex. The fun part is that this is a cute short skirt with a fringe-trimmed hemline and concealed side zipper. This will give your outfit a cute and fun twist, as well as a lot of movement.
XOXO Women’s Butter Pleather and Ponte Skirt
There are also options for people who would like to have a little edge with leather but would also love to not spend too much money on it and also, keep the trend as an option, not a total decision. And for those ones who are not totally sold on leather, XOXO give them the choice of having it just on one side. This imported skirt is 100% polyurethane and features a faux leather front and ponte-knit back. Its piped seams and asymmetric front slit keep thing sexy and flirty, as well as the pin-tuck style at the hips. With a skirt like this, you’ll have a classic with a twist and also a piece everyone would like to talk about.
Sam Edelman Women’s Emma Floral Faux-Leather Skirt
One great thing about leather and black is that you can use them both to light up an outfit without using any color. For example, with laser cut that looks like lace.

It has die-cut floral lace in faux-leather with a cutwork hem, and it’s entirely made out of other fibers. The banded waist has an exposed zipper at the back. Do I need to say anything else or you’re already in love?
BB Dakota Women’s April Faux Leather Fit-and-Flare Dress
And since we’re talking about faux leather, why not closing the list with a dress instead of a skirt? This beautiful piece by BB Dakota is all you’re going to need to make a statement, nothing else. The silhouette is not only flattering but it helps the skirt part to keep still, which gives the look a ‘princessy’ feeling that we adore. It features a fitted bodice with concealed back zipper and pleated skirt, with a zipper closure. And the colors are simply lovely: goat and black.

Choosing the correct winter apparel can be a bit more difficult for women than it is for men. Not to sell men short, but it is more important for women to be stylish and fashionable in all seasons, and winter provides specific difficulties for this because of all the bulky clothes, padded jackets and focus on insulation rather than aesthetics.
Clothing manufacturers have started to come around, however, and more winter coats are available for women that are not so bulky, and focus more on having a “slimming” effect, while still providing the adequate insulating factor and warmth that is necessary in the harsh winter climates.
To help women everywhere make the choice easier and more informed, we’ve put together this short guide with a few crucial factors that should be taken into account when purchasing the best winter coats for women. Enjoy!
1. Know Your Materials
It’s crucial to know what material you are buying. The best materials in this day and age are:
- Down/Feather Insulation
- Thinsulate Synthetic Insulation (hypo-allergenic)
Some of the materials/factors you want to avoid are:
- Air Insulated (i.e. Bubble Jackets)Low Fill Count (below 400)
- Real Fur
With regard to the final aspect of real fur, we purposely do not promote real fur being used in today’s mass manufactured jackets and coats. The fur you usually see being used is either Raccoon or Coyote, neither of which provide any added benefit to down or thinsulate materials.
2. Know Your Sizes and Form Factors
Most winter jackets and coats tend to run small, meaning you will need to order 1 size larger then you expect. However every manufacturer is different, so make sure to check feedback from other buyers before making a final decision (we’ve done a good job at evaluating the size factors in our Top 10 List).
Also important is to know whether you are shooting for a long coat or a shorter coat. More long coats (usually down to the knee or below) have become popular in recent years, and they have done a good job at maintaining the form factor (i.e. slim) and not seem too bulky.
However, shorter jackets still dominate the overall popularity, as they are less constricting and generally quicker to put on/take off. Most women utilize tights/nylons to keep their legs warm, so longer jackets aren’t always necessary.
3. Machine Washable?
Depending on your activity level, you may be getting your jacket/coat dirty more often than you’d like. Some coats are able to be machine washed (many Cartthart brand coats, for example, are machine washable) and this leads to a lot of time and cost savings from having to go to the dry cleaners.
For “fancier” coats, ones that won’t be used during physical activity, manual labor, shoveling snow or going hiking, they won’t need frequent cleanings, so utilizing the dry cleaner wont be such a cost concern.
Following these 3 simple steps should give you a big advantage when choosing the proper winter coat for your needs.
