MyShingle Fashion: How To Dress Like a French Woman: Second K.I.S.S.

September 27, 2011 by HumaRashid

I couldn’t think of a clever way to say that this was another Keep It Simple post. But that’s precisely what it is: another post in our Dress Like a French Woman mini-series where I show you how to keep things simple and look fabulous. Last time, I featured a basic outfit that’s great for […]

Should Lawyers Be Seen in Jeans?

September 13, 2011 by Carolyn Elefant

This week’s  fashion column just went up and it’s already generating some controversy.  A couple of readers have asked whether a column on jeans reflects my view that denim is suitable attire for female (and presumably male) lawyers.  To be honest, it never occurred to me that a post on jeans might be viewed as […]

MyShingle Fashion: How To Dress Like a French Woman: A Collection of Sheath Dresses

August 30, 2011 by HumaRashid

Bonjour, readers! Ça roule? Last time, I shared a keep-it-simple outfit featuring a sheath dress and heels. Unfortunately, the sheath dress was grey. Well, that’s not unfortunate, exactly. There’s nothing wrong with a grey dress. It’s just that it’s … well … Ça ne casse rien. So today, I’m going to share a bunch of […]

MyShingle Fashion: Polishing Up A Maxi Dress

August 22, 2011 by HumaRashid

This marks my last post featuring the Year Round Cardigan from Eddie Bauer. Recall that last time, I had to switch from the oatmeal heather color to the sea foam because the former sold out. My goal for this mini-series (hopefully the first -or second?- of many mini-series here) was to illustrate many different ways […]

MyShingle Fashion: Pulling Off Wide Leg Pants

May 16, 2011 by HumaRashid

That sounds a little odd, doesn’t it? I promise, this post is not about disrobing. It’s about pulling off a rather challenging look: the wide leg pants. Wide leg pants add width to the body, and so you run the risk of wearing a not-so-flattering outfit. Not so terrible in the grand scheme of things, […]

MyShingle Fashion: A Suiting Look That Goes Both Ways

April 19, 2011 by HumaRashid

It’s no secret by now that I’m a big fan of comfortable outfits. Even when I’m wearing a monkey suit, I’m always trying to make it somehow comfortable for me. For example, I don’t wear heels that are too high – or I wear a suit with pants that have been hemmed for flats, if […]

MyShingle Fashion: When Black Dresses Get A Little Boring…

April 3, 2011 by HumaRashid

I’m with you ladies – I love a little black dress. (A little black work-appropriate dress; it’s not like I’m recommending you wear your cocktail dresses to the office.) Black dresses are incredibly versatile and can be worn any different number of ways, and if you’ve got a couple that are knee-length, possibly with sleeves […]
