Sometimes it's unfortunate that the most talked about fashion items only make it to a period of conceptualization and never actually hit the streets or the runways. In some cases, they've been created strictly for the purpose of chatter, where the fashion isn't the focus at all, but a manipulative marketing ploy is. Released earlier this year, there's one concept that should make it off the pages of a magazine despite its role in media manipulation.

These fashions are more about fun than they are about function. All of the designs give you a place to store your stuff just like a wallet or purse, but they do so in such a "discreet" way that no one will ever guess that's where you stashed your cash.

Few men will tell you, but for many a flat butt is a source of embarrassment. They can work on pumping up their arms, their abs and their chests, but their butts often don't change shape as they'd like.

When you're out for a night on the town with your cell phone on hand, it's easy to miss important phones calls from your friends that you regret not picking up, because you could have stopped from them going home with the regretful guy.

Zippers were a hot trend this summer, and going into fall it's one that doesn't show signs of stopping. However, there's one zippered style (and most of us should be in agreement about this one) that really and truly should.
It seems like these days just about anything you can eat has made its way into the world of fashion, and the latest innovation will keep your feet toasty in more ways than one.
Maternity clothing is slowly improving the more time goes on. No longer do mothers have to suffer through fashion mishaps while wearing shirts and dresses that pay them a resemblance to tents. Maternity clothing is becoming more fashion forward, but that's just not for everyone; what about those geeks out there who want to wear their personalities loud and proud throughout their pregnancies without having to disguise themselves as fashionable women?
The best accessories are multi-purpose; think purses, which look fantastic, and allow you to carry everything but the kitchen sink (or, on the other end of the equation, allow you to barely fit your favorite lipstick) when you're kicking around town during the day or indulging in a night out. Okay, the latest trend in accessories, the pouch necklace, might not be quite so epic, but it does hold a place in history.

For those watch fanatics out there, there's a new design on its way that will make you drool. It comes from a partnership between a Swiss watch maker and French designer, and it kind of resembles a cassette tape but with a modern look.
Hair can be your greatest fashion accessory when you have a great cut or color; but it can also quickly become a major style faux-pas when you don't. But what about hair that accessorizes when it doesn't really belong to you, at least not genetically. Do the same rules apply with hair jewellery?
When I was a teenager, I really wanted a barcode tattoo, and for someone who desperately didn't want to find herself labelled; who knows what I was thinking. Fortunately, I got over that idea before I brought it to fruition, but I could have curbed my craving with a more temporary option.
