Same weight but clothes feeling snugger?

Check your dryer settings and remember to never leave clothes unattended. The last 15% of drying time is when shrinkage occurs and it can be permanent. Instead, dry your clothes on delicate to avoid shrinkage and set the timer for a shorter period. You can always add time to dry, but can’t reverse it if you have dried too long. Another hint – don’t mix lightweight silks and rayons with heavier cottons and polyesters – they will dry out faster and are the most prone to heat damage, while the cottons stay wet and keep your dryer spinning.

Wild prints return.

Fashion friend or foe? No faux pas this season as the wild hit the runway. The animal prints of summer and metallic fabrics of last winter collide for the winter 2012 season with the kingdoms mixing and matching. Fake furs accent leopard print on snake pattern metallic fabrics – stunning bird patterns adorn vibrant textiles while feather like jackets move with each step. What’s better than that you ask? The styles aren’t just pouncing across the runway, but hitting stores across the nation. Check out Alexander McQueen’s 2012 winter runway to see one of the most respected designers inspiration, then jet to a local store like All Saints and grab a piece of this new style that you can wear any day or night.
