Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Boyfriend Cardigans

The most-flattering cardigans for many body types is a shrunken boyfriend silhouette—like this preppy Forever 21 sweater, $22.80, a V-neck button-front straight silhouette that hits at the hip.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Cigarette-Leg Jeans

Somewhere between the jegging and straight-leg is the cigarette silhouette—like these AG Jeans "Stilt" jeans, $176, which are sleek, curve-hugging pants that just graze (not grip) the knee and ankle.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Chunky-Heel Pumps

Unless you have super-slender legs, spindly heels just aren't as flattering as a more substantial shoe. These Talbots chunky-heel pumps, $149, are conservative enough to wear to the office and will easily transition to cocktail hour and nights out.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Big Scarves

A giant scarf isn't just great for keeping you warm, it's also a terrific tool for balancing outfit proportions—and (my favorite use) hiding a double chin. This season's ethnic-inspired prints, like on this Fluxus wrap, $48, also add a subtle pop of color to casual outfits and monochrome coats.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Knee-Length Skirts

Retro-inspired ladylike silhouettes are all the rage—and a knee-length A-line skirt, like this one from J. Crew, $158, in a charming print, will make nearly anyone look like she has a great hourglass shape.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Strategic Color-Blocking

This season, use geometric prints and color-blocking to your advantage. Dresses like this one from ASOS, $81, use contrasting dark and light paneling to striking, curve-enhancing effect.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Faux-Fur Collars

Love faux fur but can't take it in large doses? Try it in a trim. A plush collar—like this ASOS piece, $36, frames your face and draws attention upward.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Polka Dots

This winter, wear fun spots on your dresses, skirts and sweaters—like this boyfriend cardigan —to accentuate your best features.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Tuxedos

There's nothing more figure-flattering than head-to-toe tailoring. This winter, women's wear takes a tip from the guys—try a sharp tuxedo, like this Albert Nipon pantsuit, $280, which is made of jersey for movement and comfort.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Denim Button-Downs

A perennial favorite, denim button-down shirts in medium-to-dark washes are also super flattering. Look for styles like this J. Jill top, $56, which is subtly shaped to contour your feminine figure.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Classic Trench Coats

Here's something you'll wear for years: a sleek, knee-length belted trench—the ideal overcoat to throw on day or night, three seasons out of the year. Choose a neutral classic beige or a chic black rendition like this Banana Republic Monogram jacket, $198.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Blouses With Bows

A ladylike bow on a chic blouse looks classic and modern all at the same time. Plus, embellishment at your neckline and in the center of your body is tried-and-true slimming. Check out this Cremieux ruffle-bow top, $89, that goes just as well with jeans as it does with a satin skirt.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Long Pendant Necklaces

It's conventional fashion knowledge that a V-neckline is, by far, the most flattering—but even if you're in a crewneck, get the V-neck look with a long pendant statement necklace, which has the same effect. We like this Betsey Johnson crown, $60, for its unique shape and eye-catching rhinestones.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Dresses With Waists

This winter, ban shapeless shifts from your wardrobe. Choose a dress cinched at your natural waistline instead, like this New York & Co. charmeuse floral top and straight skirt combo, $57.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Lace Dresses With Sleeves

When you're wearing a sleeveless dress, do you find yourself always reaching for a cover-up cardigan? Why not stock up on this season's evening-wear staple: lace dresses with long sleeves. They're flattering and photogenic, and they cover your upper arms. We like this Delia's lace dress, $45.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Wide Belts

A wide statement belt will not only give any tunic or dress an instant hourglass shape, but a pretty buckle can help draw attention to the center of your body, making you look slimmer. We like this stylish White House belt, $48.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Belted Puffa Coats

Puffa jackets have come a long way since their shapeless, utilitarian skiwear roots. This year, there are more sophisticated, long-line, belted iterations than ever, like this Calvin Klein glossy, quilted style, $109, that'll look just as at home après ski or midday shopping.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Brimmed Hats

A brimmed hat can work wonders for your features; it can define your jawline, highlight your cheekbones and emphasize the arch of your brow. Check out some of the great woolly brimmed hats on offer this winter, like this Nordstrom floppy hat, $58.

This Guy Punched a Kangaroo In Face to Save a Dog During the trip, one of the dogs ran into a kangaroo while chasing a scent.

Though we went our separate ways, we harbor no searing animosity toward each other and we regularly talk in civil and polite tones. My former wife thought I was going in the wrong direction, but I quickly made an effort to meet a new woman through online dating. I was successful in that venture. My ex joined many different clubs and organizations and eventually fell in with a man whose company she enjoys. Happy ending? I wish. I was happy for my ex, but women I met online told me that this guy continues to occupy a spot in the online dating scene, messaging women about his availability. It is not my business,

    • Prices for the original iPhone keep getting more and more absurd

      If you happen to have an iPhone 2G laying around, you might be sitting on a nice little payday, especially if you somehow never bothered to take it out of the box. Prices for the original grandaddy of Apple smartphones have steadily climbed over the years, but it's starting to get a little bit crazy. Like many Apple products, pristine examples of old models are often sought for their collectors value, even if the device itself is painfully obsolete. The iPhone is no exception. In fact, it might be the best example yet of just how crazy collector's are willing to go for a boxed, sealed Apple gadget from yesteryear. Sealed in shiny glass cases and wrapped in red ribbons, the last remaining new-in-box original iPhones are selling for thousands upon thousands of dollars, with seemingly no ceiling in sight. The "cheaper" examples are typically mint condition phones in opened boxes, and sell for a few thousand dollars, but don't expect to score a still-wrapped iPhone 2G for less than about $8,000. If you want the top-of-the-line, "display worthy" examples you can plan on a total of $15,000 or more. And no, these aren't just the listed prices for the phones; these are the prices that people are actually paying for the phones, as shown by eBay's completed listings filter. What exactly a person would do with a never-opened original iPhone that they paid $15,000 or more for remains a mystery. Perhaps it looks nice above the fireplace, or maybe it's just a really fancy paperweight. Whatever the reason, people with money to burn clearly love old iPhones.

    • Video: Hummingbird Loves Dog Who Saved Her

      (DOGS/ANIMAL RESCUE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) Ed Gernon and his rescued German Shepherd mix, Rex were on a walk one day when they spotted a featherless hummingbird on the ground, covered in ants. Gernon assumed the bird was dead at first, but Rex refused to walk away. That’s when they met Hummer, in poor health but still alive. Rex’s apparent concern for the bird was enough to convince the man to try and save her, so he took the sick bird home and nursed her back to health. Since her rescue, Gernon claims Hummer has “developed a total crush on Rex,” never wanting to leave his side. — Global Animal

    • Russia intervened to help Trump win election: intelligence officials

      By John Walcott WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help President-elect Donald Trump win the White House, and not just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, a senior U.S. official said on Friday. U.S. intelligence agencies have assessed that as the 2016 presidential campaign progressed, Russian government officials devoted increasing attention to assisting Trump's effort to win the election, the U.S. official familiar with the finding told Reuters on Friday night, speaking on condition of anonymity. The president-elect's transition office released a statement that exaggerated his margin of victory and attacked the U.S. intelligence community that Trump will soon command, but did not address the analysts' conclusion.
