Leggings are 'great for layering'
Colder weather means only one thing: time to fully reconsider style options for fashionistas across the northern hemisphere, according to an expert.

Roni Proter, the fashion reporter for US TV channel The CW, spoke to celebrity stylist Mariel Haenn, the force behind Rihanna, Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

She recommended the use of shoulder pads, which make a woman's frame look more feminine as it brings a person in at their waist more, though it's all about pairing it with leggings for the "ultimate trendy look".

Ms Haenn continued: "Leggings could pair with another one of my trends which is the cozy knit. And a lot of times this is stuff you'll see Rihanna wearing through the airport, or going out to eat."

While all these new trends can overwhelm many, the style expert asserted that people must "keep it simple yet playful".

The CW is a leading fashion resource for TV lovers in the US, showing Gossip Girl and America's Next Top Model as two of its flagship programmes.
