The Style File

I couldn’t have said it better myself. One of the joys of being a single woman is the freedom-to book a trip to Borneo if you feel like it, to eat the last ice cream sandwich, to spend a week’s salary on a pair of shoes, whatever. And what better way to express that freedom than through your personal style? Whether it’s a new handbag to celebrate that new promotion, that beloved little black dress that always stops traffic, or a liberating new hairstyle, fashion and beauty play an important role in helping you shine. (Just think of all those poor married gals who have to-shudder-clear major purchases with their husbands first.)

Your Looks is all about celebrating our freedom to transform, indulge and experiment as little or as much as we want to. And though I love watching the catwalk as much as the next fashionista, the content you’ll discover here is geared towards real life, not the runway. Expect to read about glam new trends that can work for any woman, get insider info about rising designers, score fashion and beauty secrets, and get answers to your burning style questions. I also want you to share your feedback and spill your style secrets-it takes a village to look good!
