It's an easy appetizer that makes a good vegetarian start to a Latin feast. Want the recipe? Read more.

Um, I don't think so.

Join the puff party! Not to be confused with the '80s bubble hem, the puff is all about creating contrasting volume. This is an ideal party look. To avoid looking like a puff pastry, make sure the puff starts high on the hip and the top is fitted and structured. See Miu Miu's delectable short and puffy concoction (left) — love!
