Fashion Forward Holidays with Key Accessories


Holiday season is here and it's time to look great with the latest in fashion trends and styles. Especially in this economic climate, women want to update their look without the cost of couture or the difficulty of understanding how to wear what they see on the runway.

Finola Hughes, award-winning actress and host of The Style Network's "How Do I Look?" says many people may not realize that the key to wearing the latest trends can be as simple as updating a few accessories and repairing things you may already have in the closet. And, she says, eyewear is the first thing people notice and the easiest accessory to update.

Nothing says fashion faux-pas like an outdated pair of eyeglasses -- especially bifocals or reader glasses that slip down your nose. It's important for fashion to meet function, and a trendy pair of frames with high-quality progressive lenses can help maintain a youthful appearance. The latest lenses protect you from everyday elements such as glare, smudges and scratches, so the only thing people see is you.

"Women are often unsure about eyewear. I'll tell you a little secret -- it's actually hip to don high-quality eye lenses," says Hughes. "Over the past year, I started to become aggravated with having to hunt down my reading glasses to be able to see the splinter in my child's hand or to read a recipe. Thanks to my progressive lenses, I can see near, far and everything in between -- it's like seeing in high definition. This holiday season, a clear vision of the world is my best accessory."

Hughes suggests updating the rest of your holiday look with a few fashion-meets-function accessories that you can pair with what you already own:

* A versatile satchel bag can take any look from daytime to nighttime. It's classic as a work staple, and makes a no-nonsense statement when worn out on the town to a holiday party.

* Add some edge to your style with hints of rock n' roll in the form of metal accessories. Layer chunky necklaces, wear studded belts, or tuck jeans into motorcycle boots with buckle details.

* Bold prints and innovative fabrics take center stage this season. Be seen in textured patterns and vibrant colors, from bright-colored block sheaths, to jewel-toned paisley tops or a houndstooth wool coat.

* Show off your assets in defining, high-wasted pants. Pair a wide-legged version in denim with a tucked-in, fitted blouse and slouchy cardigan for a retro look.

* Rich, sultry fabrics like velvet and lace complete an evening ensemble and add an element of femininity. Invest in a lace-covered clutch or pair slacks with a sheer, lacy bow-neck blouse to feel like a queen for a day.

Editor's Note: If you don't think eyeglasses are a fashion statement, we have two words for you: Sarah Palin.
