SCARF IT UP

Yes, ladies, it’s cold outside, and we’re all in a rush to bundle up. But please, please, take the time to wrap and tuck your scarves before putting on your coat. There are no excuses for a “front tail” scarf malfunction (as seen on Jennifer Garner and Lindsay Lohan).

SHOPPING TIPS

Two can’t-miss gift suggestions from designer Julie Haus, whose fans include Jessica Alba:

• STOCKING STUFFER

Don’t know someone’s size? Give vintage shoe clips, says Haus. “They can put them on ballet flats to make them their own.”

• BEST BET

Faux-fur pillows “are fun and fashionable” for the person who has everything, says Haus. “It’s not typical.”
