That’s something not everybody will want, but for people who love the outdoors, it could be just right.” St. Christopher and St. Michael medals are regular sellers for men, and there’s always someone with Irish roots who’s interested in a ring with Celtic knots. “We’ll have young boys come in, 18 and 19 years old, and we’ll have older gentlemen in their 60s,” Thompson said. Men can spice things up with traditional items, like cufflinks, tie tacks and pocket watches. “And we sell a lot of crosses to men,” Smith said. “Now, we’re getting more silver than gold, but that makes sense with gold prices where they are.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Spanx offers a wide variety of styles and colors of shapewear, so women can choose which areas to target. “The Higher Power Panties are the most popular,” Petty said. The Higher Power Panties smooth curves in the thighs and waist; the Super Higher Power Panties have a tighter hold. There are plenty more kinds of Spanx, such as the Skinny Britches capris that shape the thighs; the Slimplicity openbust full slip; the Slimplicity Booty-Booster, which enhances the bottom; and the On Top and In Control camisole,
which controls the back area. Spanx do not feature the uncomfortable boning that used to be the main selling point of shapewear of the past. They have no-band legs, so there are no lines where the shapewear ends. Spanx comes in a variety of sizes, Petty said, so customers can choose their best size by checking a chart that comes on the package. email@example.com

Jewelry stores make space for men
Picking the right shapewear completes any look TUPELO – Looking good on the outside is easy if you have a little help on the inside. Many women have a few problem areas they’d like to tame, like a few curves on the thighs, waist or back. In the past, the old-fashioned, painful girdles were a woman’s best friend. These days, women have many more options, in many more styles, colors and comfort levels. “We find out the exact areas they want to target – the thighs, midsection – and we pick something from there,” said Fitting Concepts owner Gina Petty. Women aren’t bound to one piece of shapewear that covers everything. There are styles that target just the midsection, thighs, back, or other areas, or a combination of them. Women also have more color choices, like black, brown and nude. Petty said women who wear white need to opt for a nude or brown shade that matches their skin. The best advice Petty has for anyone shopping for shapewear: Pick the right size. “If it’s not comfortable, it’s going to go in the drawer,” she said. “They really want to be pulled in, so they want a size lower than their original size. But it’ll be too tight to be effective.” Another tip: Pull your shapewear around your body evenly and all the way. If your shapewear meets your bra, pull it up to actually meet the bra. Many ladies pull the shapewear up to their waist, but for it to be effective – and so it won’t roll down and create more problems – it should be pulled all the way up, and pulled evenly. These days, the shapewear line Spanx is such a best-seller that it’s the only shapewear line sold by Fitting Concepts in Tupelo.

pops of color to solid color tops. “A statement necklace will make every and any outfit,” Metts said. Classic pieces in your wardrobe can be embellished with a statement necklace or scarf or layered under a chunky sweater. “You can make a look totally different by changing pieces,” Simmons said. Purses are adding big blocks of color and texture to outfits, too. On your toes, boots and booties will go with nearly anything this fall, but they are anything but uniform. Cowboy boots, English riding boots, ankle booties and boots with fringe are all in the mix. “You need a pair of boots,” Metts said.

This fall isn’t for fading into the woodwork. Bright colors and bold accessories are making a statement. “It’s all about color and detail,” saidVirginia Metts, owners of Voe’s Boutique in Tupelo. “Even people who are more reserved will be throwing on color this fall.” The fashion scene isn’t ready to let go of the spring and summer’s bright colors. Corals, oranges, raspberries and bright red are lighting up the season. “It’s real funky and fun and kind of shocking,” said Phyllis Robinson, owner of Devilish Mary’s in Tupelo. Some of summer favorites, like yellow and aqua, are moving toward more fall-friendly hues of mustard and teal. Burgundy, cobalt blues and purples are rounding out the bright, bold colors for the season. “Jewel tones are huge as well,” said Amber Mooneyham, owner of The Snooty Owl in east Tupelo. Balancing those bold colors are some winter whites, creams and grays. “Graphite is the new neutral color,” Robinson said.

The flowing palazzo pants range from extremely wide legs to more slender silhouettes in a variety of fabrics. “Some are really light-weight and some are stretchy,” Mooneyham said. Missoni prints, geometrics and other bold prints put the pants in the fashion spotlight. “These are pretty bold,” Stout said. With these bold looks on bottom, store owners suggest finishing off the outfit with a solid colored top and a statement necklace. Denim isn’t just for jeans this fall; it’s showing up in shirts and jackets, too. “Denim shirts are back,” said Krista Blanchard of Reed’s Department Store.

most leather-like appearance.
LAYER IT ON
Building an outfit in layers is still going strong this fall. Bright silk shirts can be belted over a camisole or left flowing. Open-weave sweaters and light cardigans can be layered over camisoles right now and layered under blazers and heavier cardigans as the weather cools. “There’s less structure, more layering,” Simmons said. Not only is it high fashion, it’s very practical since Mississippi’s fall starts warm and ends cool. “You can take the dresses you are wearing now and transition them into fall,” with leggings and blazers, Stout said. Depending on the layers you choose, the effect can be formal or fun. “Our layering is more creative with fringe,” Simmons said. “It gives it a bohemian look.”
Nods to the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s – especially “Mad Men”-inspired sophistication – are sprinkled through the season’s hottest looks. Peter Pan collars and lace details provide a softer contrast to the bold colors and prints. “We’re seeing lots of Peter Pan collars,” Blanchard said. The hi-lo hems and peplums – a flouncy skirt detail at the waist of tops and skirts – are continuing strong for the season. “With dresses, women’s waists are more emphasized,” Blanchard said. “It’s more tailored.”
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
Accessories aren’t just afterthoughts. Scarves, big bold necklaces and purses with texture and color are in the spotlight. The bubble necklace is particularly hot this fall for bringing in bright
Leather, lace, chiffon and velvet are adding a touchable trend to the season. “There’s lots of textures,” Blanchard said. Leather is popping up on its own and as a detail on sleeves, collars, pockets and pants. Designers are doing interesting things with leather to lighten it up, such as perforated leather. Leather fringe is everywhere. “Different pieces of your wardrobe can have leather touches,” Blanchard said. Velvet is back in the spotlight in tops and pants, as well as dresses. “It’s not necessarily dressy,” Robinson said. Not all the fabrics are traditionally fall and winter. “Chiffon is the big material,” Stout said. It’s lightweight and can be layered over and under, depending on the weather or occasion. Adding visual texture, Missoni, Aztec, tribal and geometric prints are out in full force. Animal prints are wild as ever. Python is slithering into the picture for fall. “You’ll see even more in the spring,” Blanchard said. firstname.lastname@example.org

Make a statement
From shiny shoes to funky patterns, kid’s clothing about grabbing attention BY SHEENA BARNETT DAILY JOURNAL
TUPELO – It’s hard to miss kids’ fashion this fall. Sparkly shoes can catch the bright lights at football games, bright colors will light up school hallways and funky patterns will make playgrounds that much more flashy. Typical fall colors like brown, orange, plum and red are paired with brighter colors like seafoam, magenta and yellow, and mix-and-match patterns are still in style. “Little girl fashion is all about lace and tulle and mixing and matching patterns,”
‘Little girl fashion is all about lace and tulle and mixing and matching patterns.’ Sissie Craft
Reed’s children’s department manager said Sissie Craft in the children’s department at Reed’s. “It’s brighter, more bold colors, paired with dark colors.” Stripes, polka dots, paisley, plaid and other patterns are everywhere in kid’s clothing, said Juli Palmer at Corner Shoe store. “It’s really funky,” she said. “This is more color than we’ve seen in a while.” The base color for fall 2012 is gray. “Gray is in big,” said Deanna Russell, owner of Silly Simpson’s in Tupelo. “Either charcoal or light gray is in.” Magenta and purple are more popular this fall, Russell said. “There’s still a touch of neon

Pick shoes that make a statement, Palmer said. Metallic shoes – especially in bronze and silver – are big sellers at Silly Simpson’s, Russell said, and Palmer said they were popular at Corner Shoe Store, too. “Pewter is the new neutral,” Palmer said. Just about every style of boots are must-haves, Palmer said. Western boots in fun colors and prints – like red or leopard print – are big sellers. Sparkly shoes are still in style at all three stores. “Shoes with a lot of colors and embellishments are in,” Palmer said. TOMS are popular at Reed’s, Craft said. A new Mary Jane style of TOMS is especially popular for younger kids, she said.

Natural look in when it comes to makeup BY GINNA PARSONS DAILY JOURNAL
TUPELO – When it comes to makeup, less is more this fall. “Skin is the new foundation,” said Tracy Hoover, retail manager of M.A.C cosmetics at Belk in The Mall at Barnes Crossing. “Skin should be lush and have a dewy, refreshed look. You want it to look soft and youthful. Matte is out. Everything is very natural.” In keeping with that natural look, Hoover recommends a cream blush applied just to the apple of the cheeks for a soft glow. “With this look you want to have a natural eye with defined lashes and a lip that looks just bitten – a tint of color that stays flat with no gloss,” she said. Hoover, who was named one of the 100 most recommended makeup artists in America by ELLE magazine in April, said one look she likes in particular is a soft gray smoky eye paired with a glossy burgundy lip. “That plays up a dark romance for fall,” she said. “You want a bold eye and a soft lip, a soft eye and a bold lip, a soft eye and a soft lip, but never a bold eye and a bold lip. That starts looking almost clownish.” A golden eye shadow swept across the lid also catches the light and works with every skin tone, Hoover said. Eyeliner that gives a retro cat-eye or a winged look is in this fall, she said. “That’s really hot now,” Hoover said. “And the eyeliner doesn’t have to be black. Think retro colors to keep the cat-eye playful.”
Liquid eyeliner should be used for the cat-eye or winged look; a pencil or crayon, smudged with Hoover a cotton swab or a brush, is best for the smoky look. And while eyeliner is in, lip liner is out. “Lip liner is really non-existent,” she said. “And if you do use it, you must blend it with your lipstick and blur it with foundation.” And that lipstick needs to be red. “Along with the bold colors for clothing, lips have taken a bolder look at well,” Hoover said. “With the rest of the makeup staying natural, pop on a crimson or bordeaux lip color with the lip edges blurred and soft. Red lips are most definitely going to be a tried and true go-to for fall. Red is always classic.” As for nails, the classic French manicure looks oldfashioned today. Rounded edges with colored tips is the new fashion for fall 2012. “No more pointy or square nails,” Hoover said. “Round is in. And dark polish is very hot, even dipped in gold or metallic tips. It will almost look like jewelry.” The bottom line, she said, is that your makeup should look like you’re not even trying. “You want to look like you have natural beauty,” she said. “Youthful beauty is what you’re going for.” email@example.com

FLORIDA ATLANTIC AT NO. 1 ALABAMA
THE BUZZ: The Crimson Tide should not really be tested today, so it’ll be interesting to see how strongly they commit to the possibility of throwing a third consecutive shutout. Alabama has scored 94 unanswered points over a span of 145 minutes. The Owls lost 56-20 to Georgia last week. KEY STAT: Alabama’s first-team offensive line outweighs Florida Atlantic’s No. 1 defensive front by an average of 314-248.
NO. 2 LSU AT AUBURN
THE BUZZ: LSU can stay on track for a third straight No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup against Alabama with a win in its SEC opener. Coach Gene Chizik and Auburn could silence many of their critics by pulling off a big upset after a disappointing start, but QB Kiehl Frazier still doesn’t look comfortable. KEY STAT: LSU has won 24 consecutive games in September and has a nation’s best 16-game regular-season winning streak.
VANDERBILT AT NO. 5 GEORGIA
THE BUZZ: Georgia begins a stretch of seven straight SEC games and simply cannot afford a loss with tougher opponents such as South Carolina and Florida lurking on the schedule. And Bulldogs will look to go 4-0 for the first time since 2008. Vandy coach James Franklin has received plenty of praise for changing his team’s losing attitude, but he still needs a signature league win. KEY STAT: The Commodores haven’t beaten a ranked SEC team since 2008 and they’ve lost 16 of 17 meetings against the Bulldogs.

SC STATE AT TEXAS A&M
THE BUZZ: Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel accounted for 418 total yards and six touchdowns in last week’s romp over SMU. He should come up big, as should defensive end Demontre Moore, who leads the nation with 2.5 sacks per game. KEY STAT: A&M has won nine straight non-conference home games.
RUTGERS AT ARKANSAS
THE BUZZ: All eyes will be on Razorbacks QB Tyler Wilson, who got hurt in the first half against Louisiana-Monroe (Arkansas lost 34-3 in OT) and didn’t MISSOURI play at all last week against Alabama AT NO. 7 SOUTH CAROLINA (lost 52-0).
