Necklace Statement

Triangle women are embracing the more-is-more approach to jewelry. So, layer your necklaces! Feel free to experiment: One day, do multiples of the same material, such as silver ropes; another, go for contrast, such as pearls mixed with edgy chains.

Denim Days

How to discover your dream jeans? Try, try and try again. But before you head to Crabtree Valley Mall or The Streets at Southpoint, consider your body type and these tips:


Petite: Seek a relaxed fit that's narrow enough not to overwhelm. And while this may be obvious, it's not easy to pull off: Jeans for petite women must not bunch up at the ankles. You might like a soft, supple pair that molds to curves and feels like leggings. Bonus: Fading that travels down the leg has an elongating effect.


Tall: When it comes to jeans, the No. 1 goal of lanky women is to avoid high-waters. Therefore, your objective is to find a more generous inseam. Jeans that are slightly flared at the hem can cover your ankles and most of your shoe. For casual days, consider a pair that rolls up at the bottom.


Hourglass: The challenge is to find dungarees that fit well on the waist but aren't too tight elsewhere, like the thighs. Start with pants made of a flexible material. Then, look for those that are gently curved through the upper hip and perhaps offer zipper pockets or other embellishments to draw eyes toward your best assets.


Plus: Great denims - the holy grail of curvy women. First, hunt for pants with a stretchy waistband. Second, angle for some extra room around the stomach, hips and butt as well as slim (but not too slim!), straight legs that give the effect of a skinny jean.
