For many women, the little black dress is a versatile travel staple. Now, here comes the little black-and-white travel wardrobe. Actually, what you get are five rayon spandex garments - black wide-leg pants, a black slip dress, white long-sleeve shirt, white tank top, and black poncho, plus two long sashes (one black, one white) - that can be used as belts, scarves, or whatever. The pieces can be combined in various ways to create 25 looks, from casual to night on the town. The set comes pre-packed in its own travel bag. Available in five sizes, 2 to 14. Just add shoes and underwear.

When a viewer recognizes a signature look of a TV character, the original caricature created by writers is fleshed out to new dimensions. Consider the unforgettable sweaters Penny Marshall wore as Laverne De Fazio, or Tina Louise's glamorous gowns as castaway Ginger Grant, or the cardigans worn by everybody's neighbor Fred Rogers, Mister Rogers to his young viewers. Costumers and wardrobe designers take fashion characterization very seriously. They rely on more than Lone Ranger white for heroes and Bad Guy black for villains to please today's visually demanding audiences.

NEW YORK - There are people out there who really do stick to their New Year's resolution and take off those last 10 pounds - or more. Sometimes, says fashion guru Tim Gunn, they don't know how to show it off, or even find clothes that fit. "Once you've reached your goal, it's time to go shopping, or at least alter your old clothing. . . . My mantra about 'getting' fashion is silhouette, proportion, and fit. When they are in balance," he says, "you'll look great in whatever you're wearing.

Beyond winning best new artist Grammys and breaking week-of-release iTunes records for Maroon 5's It Won't Be Soon Before Long, there's Adam Levine. The lilting jazzy singer; the guy who not only dueted with raunchy hip-hoppers Ying Yang Twins but sang on rapper/producer Kanye West's Late Registration (Levine's the sweetest part of "Heard 'Em Say"). Levine just paired with Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen during Saturday Night Live, clowning Iran's prez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in song.

In this designer-look-for-less day and age, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's $150,000 wardrobe seems to wear the label of excess. In addition to nicking her image of a hockey mom feeling Joe the Plumber's pain. But truth is, the bespectacled governor was thrust onto the political runway - straight into the polished arena of power suits and pumps - to campaign for the second-highest position in the land. "As vice presidential candidate, she had to be professional and exude confidence," said Sara Canuso, owner of A Suitable Solution in Center City, who herself is a Republican.

Hey, guy, wanna look fly? It's not as hard as you might think. Today's pared-down fashion climate makes it possible to assemble a style- flexible wardrobe without going broke. Whether you're 19 or 35, you can take some simple components and tailor them to fit your lifestyle. There are many wardrobe basics, including accessories, that can put you right on fashion's edge. Mind you, this is not quite the cutting edge. That would require loads of cash and a willingness to buy trendy garments that surely would be out of date within a year.

Like the old gray mare, dressing for success ain't what it used to be. Ten years ago, women climbing the corporate ladder mimicked the clothes of their male counterparts. Their uniform: a dark, tailored suit; a pale shirt with a floppy bow, and plain pumps. Goodbye to all that. As we approach the 1990s, such sober, mannish attire in the workplace has become a cliche. Today, working women are wearing softer clothes - in bright, cheery colors - and striking, fashionable accessories.

RE KIMBERLY Garrison's Oct. 11 fitness column: Someone's wardrobe, attire, vestments, etc., are, of course, a discretionary matter. Fine for one is not fine for all. To each his or her own and to each scenario as well. I, for one, would never, ever, never in a million, billion, trillion years, say, bare my midriff. Unless, of course, there was a fee involved!

NEW YORK - We all agree that Bart Blatstein's family knows a thing or two about revitalizing neighborhoods. But what about breathing new life into women's lingerie? That's a whole different kind of rehabilitation process. Yet that's what Blatstein's 24-year-old daughter, Jenna Leigh Blatstein, is trying to do. She's asking American women to graduate from standard Victoria's Secret stock and pay the same attention to their underwear that they do to their outerwear. "A girl can have a full wardrobe of my lingerie," said Blatstein as we perused her collection of fall and spring intimates during Fashion Week at her Soho design studio.

After growing out of my Hawaiian shorts-suit obsession back in the 1980s, I let most of the floral prints in my wardrobe go. The big blooms were just too busy for my burgeoning minimalist tastes. Not only were those flowery designs loud, but they also came with too many rules. Sheer peony blouses were cheap-girl no-nos. Patterns always matched. Colors never clashed. And after Labor Day, all things hyacinth- and hydrangea-covered were buried in the back of the closet. It's no wonder I'm a fan of this spring's verdant vibe.

WHEN Edwin Huntingdon Parker's Philadelphia apartment was robbed, he shrugged and said, "They probably needed it more than me. " That sounded like Parker. He was generous and forgiving almost to a fault. "He was honest even when it was to his detriment," said longtime friend Robert Kahn, AIDS activist and supervisor in the city's Anti-Bias Agency. "He was one of the most honest, positive and generous people I have ever known. " Edwin Huntingdon Parker, well-known in the theater world as a costume designer who worked with local theater and opera companies and toured the world with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, died Feb. 9 of metastatic lung cancer.

I came back from book tour with something for Mother's Day. Diaper rash. Yes, you read that correctly. I'd been on a book tour that started in Philadelphia and traveled to all over the country in the same jeans. I had no way to wash them, and I have only one pair. That I can fit into. I wore the jeans on the planes, in the hotel rooms, during the signings, out to dinner with readers and booksellers - anyway, you get the idea. What happened was that I started to chafe in Buckhead, which is too ritzy an Atlanta suburb to start itching in your pants.

Not a believer The article "3 surviving Monkees in a daydream reunion" (Dec. 1) says, "Over the course of nearly 50 years, the Monkees have evolved from a thrown-together sitcom cash-in on the mop-topped bands of the 1960s to pop icons on a par with those classic rockers. " As someone who watched the Monkees series as a child, there is no 50-year career. More like a two-year career with the TV show and a song, "I'm a Believer," that was used in the movie Shrek .

Anna Piaggi, 81, an oracular Italian fashion editor known for an endless array of eye-popping, wildly colorful outfits of the most peculiar combinations, from thermal mountain-rescue coats to a uniform vest from late-period McDonald's, died Tuesday at her Milan home. Her death was confirmed by Italian Vogue, where she had created some of her most visually arresting work. Owing to her vast knowledge of fashion history, as well as a personal wardrobe that included clothes spanning more than 200 years, Ms. Piaggi was often described as "the walking museum.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals here said today that the Federal Communications Commission "arbitrarily and capriciously" departed from a prior policy exempting "fleeting broadcast material" from indecency in the Janet Jackson wardrobe-malfunction case. The case involved the brief exposure - 9/16th of a second - of Jackson's bare breast during CBS' broadcast of the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 1, 2004. The FCC subsequently fined CBS $550,000 in connection with the incident.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Charl Schwartzel? If this were the NCAA Tournament, he probably would have been a double-digit seed in the Midwest. Heck, it almost sounds like something you might order at the ballpark concession stand, maybe with extra pickles. So what was the 26-year-old South African doing closing with four consecutive birdies late yesterday afternoon at Augusta National, which nobody has ever done before, to win a green jacket when it looked for the longest time as if things were headed for a 10-man playoff?
