With traditional storefronts and an ever-increasing number of online retailers, modern shoppers have more options than ever. Leading a way through this dizzying scene of trends and brands is Stylit, at Mystylit.com.
Launched about a year ago, the site offers shopping tips from stylists around the world.
"It's not about fitting your body or your style into the latest trends, it's about finding the trends that are right for your body, right for your taste," said Tamar Frumkin, the company's marketing vice president.
"Fashion is meant to encourage you and lift you up, not something that you feel like you have to conform to," said Frumkin, who was in Lexington last month while visiting family.
