• Skinnies, scarves, and socks, oh my!

    Every year, when my family gathers around the table for Thanksgiving dinner, we go around and everyone says at least one thing they are thankful for. Our answers are always fairly predictable – our family, parents, children, the food on the table – the basics. Even though the answers never change, we continue the discussion year after year. Although we moan and groan over our cheesy little tradition, the underlying theme is not lost on us – we all have something to be thankful for, and we are lucky to have those things.

  • Freshman Follies

    College is an interesting time.  After 18 years of being taken care of and having someone watching their every move, college students are suddenly thrown headfirst into independence.  Not only do they have to deal with a new school, new living situation and new friends, but they are also expected to learn and mature in the midst of all of the chaos. With so many new things being thrown at them at once, it is no surprise that fashion often gets put on the backburner while they adjust.

  • Dapper Dozen 2016 - The Women

    Each year for the past five years, Signature has named a Dapper Dozen in its September Style issue. This eclectic group of fashionable and stylish Greater Hattiesburg-area residents make a statement wherever they go. It may not always be because of what they have on or how they wear it, but rather who they are as a genuine person.

  • Turn back time

    Matthew Perry and Zac Efron made a movie several years ago called “17 Again,” about a father who wakes up one day as the teenage version of himself.  I never saw it, but I imagine it taps into everyone’s desire to be young again, even for a short amount of time. Thanks to a resurgence of the fashion and culture of my youth, I get to live my own version of that movie. 

  • A man's guide to what not to wear

    “‘Cause every girl crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed man." 
     –ZZ Top, Sharp Dressed Man

    When I found out this issue would be dedicated to men, I knew I would have to write my column on men’s fashion… and immediately panicked. I tried my best to get out of writing it, but I was told I was “not allowed to punt before I even made an effort.” So, here we go. 

  • Fashion takes center stage at awards

    I  love any excuse to dress up. In a job where I typically wear jeans, I find it exciting to wear sequins, rhinestones and glittery heels. The annual Best of the Pine Belt Awards Show is the perfect time to do just that. 

  • Breaking the Rules

    I was recently at a fashion show full of high school-age models. One girl came out wearing a pair of black leather pumps and asked if they made her “look like a mom.” My first instinct was to be terribly offended. I love my black pumps.  I wear them all the time. I am actually wearing them right now. Yes, I am a mom, but I never thought my shoes gave that away. Then, after some quick math, I realized not only am I a mom, but I could be this girl’s mom. The age gap had never seemed bigger or more depressing.

  • Hattiesburgers invade New York City

    Jason Leviere moved to Hattiesburg in the fall of 2010. He had met Hattiesburg native Adam Myrick in New York, where each worked in several capacities for H&M, Restoration Hardware, Coldwater Creek, Crate and Barrel or Kate Spade. The two decided to move South and be their own bosses, opening first a boutique, Click, before adding a shoes and accessory business next door, Twelve Oaks, in Downtown Hattiesburg.
