Ready for a mind-blowing fashion hack? According to Lauren Edelstein, Style Director at Shopbop, all you need to do to determine whether or not a pair of jeans will fit is to wrap the waist around your neck — if the ends meet without overlapping (or stretching), they'll fit your waist. "The neck trick is one I was skeptical about, but it really works!"

Shopper of orange for 5 plus years! I’ve noticed a huge shift in morale the last few times I’ve stopped in over the last 3 weeks or so. My review isn’t about my great buys, you know the quality of your merchandise is A+. I wanted to say how happy I am with the staff. They have always been Okay in orange hit or miss staff mostly, but the new faces I’m seeing they have restored all my faith in this location. They go out of the way to help you. Friendly, always smiling and they Interact with people much better than what I’ve seen in the past. Today was a homerun for me. I was having a bad day I stopped in to have some much needed retail therapy. The young lady behind the cash register said hello and told me about the sale with a smile even asked how my day was. (She made my crappy day feel a lot better). I recognized Victoria, who also asked if I needed any help and made small talk with a smile she is always a doll. I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention the young girl with red hair. She told me her name and I can’t remember it. I know it was very unique I made a joke about it being a alias, she responded with a witty comeback about being a retail spy. It really did lift my mood up. I don’t know if she is manager or a shift lead but she is a born leader. That girl is like the energizer bunny she moves around from one end of the store to the next like she has on roller skates. Her attention to us and the staff was amazing She was giving boost of confidence to everyone. They all just just have that I’m here to help you way about them. I’m most impressed that they didn’t make me feel rushed at the end of the night they gave a few shoppers time to make up our minds and me time to add to my purchase. I just wanted to give that team some recognition. They are great. The store looks amazing, love all the new space. It’s like the store had a face lift.
A sloppily cuffed jean. An ill-fitting blazer. A dress that shows just a little too much to be referred to as "tastefully sheer." These are the things that fashion editors and stylists can spot from a million miles away. To those in the biz, the proper proportions of a crop top may be obvious, but for those seeing the trends in a magazine or online, it can be a little trickier to know exactly how to wear everything.
When it comes to fashion tips, it sometimes seems that everyone and their mother (literally!) has tried-and-true style advice they absolutely swear by. Some are useful, while others … well, not so much. With that in mind, we’ve culled 101 style tips from the best: designers, lifestyle experts and, of course, our staff. Trust us: With these gems, you’ll be well on your way to living your most stylish life.
A sale should never be a cue to buy something. I mean, not never, but it should not always be (which is the case for most of us). If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale. You have your answer.
Every true fashionista knows that the real clothing magic takes place when you bring in the accessories. Strategically placed, a belt can help you change the contour of a dress or slouchy top; cinch it around the waist to achieve a perfect hourglass look or well above your waist to accentuate your bust and lengthen your legs. Try a brightly colored belt that contrasts with the hue of your other clothing, and then pick up that shade in a matching handbag or hat. VENUS also carries a line of unique fashion jewelry, including earrings, chokers and bracelets, which will help you finish off your look.
After working in Marketing and Business Development for a few years, Pratima Ati jumped ship to pursue two things she loved – fashion and writing. She’s now a full-time Fashion & Lifestyle writer and has never looked back ever since. She sleeps early, reads often, and when she can't, she finally gives a closure to all the characters living in her drafts. Sometimes, they pass off as poetry too! That, and her training in Indian classical music and playing (learning) the veena keep her sane, civil, and bearable.
Whether you’re looking for jeans, capris or open leg pants, you’ll discover them at VENUS. Many of the pants options have sewn-in control panels that smooth and slim your tummy, thighs and derriere. Choose from comfy leggings, too, in a multitude of prints and styles. Skirts come in all lengths from mini to maxi. Comfortable cut-off, cuffed and Bermuda shorts make a great addition to any casual warm-weather wardrobe.

No more fat ankles!! Most of my jeans are boot cut or straight leg (guess I’m just not a skinny jean kind of girl). This poses a problem when it comes to wearing boots — not only does it make it hard to zip them up, but I’m sometimes left with bunched up fabric that is uncomfortable and unflattering! If you have a similar problem, here is a nice little trick to tucking those non-skinny jeans into your boots.


A sale should never be a cue to buy something. I mean, not never, but it should not always be (which is the case for most of us). If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale.
