When you own all of his movies, have tried growing a pencil mustache and have a pink flamingo in your yard, what else can you do to show your love for John Waters? Try a sweater by James Long. The young designer has just unveiled his collection highlighted by several pieces that give props to what must be one of his favorite directors. At men's fashion week in London, Long charmed fashionistas -- or perhaps puzzled them -- with several sweaters featuring the face of Divine, the drag queen made famous in some of Waters' movies.

Q: All I see for spring and summer are short cropped sweaters, many with the midriff showing. But I have a long waist so these sweaters just ride up my back and make me extremely uncomfortable. Have designers completely forgotten about women with figure problems?A: Not according to designer Randy Kemper. He says that with so many short sweaters around, long ones look new for summer:"Short-sleeve sweaters at hip length look great over both narrow and straight skirts. Wear a narrow belt in patent to accent the look, and you'll be right in step with fashion."

Q: I have fallen in love with short sweaters. I bought one for spring and found it perfect for my high-waisted figure. My boyfriend thought it was sexy because he could feel my bare skin when he put his hand on my waist. I want to buy another for fall to go with my jeans, but I also want to stay warm. What should I look for?A: You'll find that cropped sweaters have made a nice transition from spring into fall. They come in many shapes, colors and fibers -- from skinny rib wools to fine, but still fluffy, mohairs.

Q In an effort to extend summer for as long as possible, I usually put off clearing out the last of the summer clothes from my closet until way past the end of the season. This warm fall was no exception. Recently, when I took my wool sweaters out of the drawer they'd been stored in all summer, they weren't spotted or dirty, but they didn't seem quite fresh. Any suggestions?A: Yes. Put your clean (dry) sweaters -- turned inside out -- into the dryer on the "gentle" cycle and set the temperature to "air" (no heat!

At a time in life when many of my contemporaries are thinking about moving south to escape the winter, I am thinking of moving north to escape the winter. Not just any winter, but the winter experienced in the Middle Atlantic states. It is usually referred to as a "mild" winter, but I think of it more as a wimp winter. A half-baked winter. A rainy, gray, make-up-your-mind winter. Here in the Mid-Atlantic, we brace for the occasional big snowstorm, closing schools and canceling events and driving badly in anticipation of the storm.

It's as ubiquitous every holiday season as the inedible fruitcake - and it's almost as inexplicable. It just isn't Christmas until someone has worn one to a holiday party, or given one as a gift ... the dreaded Yuletide sweater. You know the one. It's got appliqued reindeer or strategically placed snowmen in festive vests. Maybe it has been overtaken by a smiling Santa Claus, or ambushed by angel-topped trees. It's green or red or cream with snowflakes. It's got choo-choo train borders, three-dimensional snowballs or gaily wrapped presents for buttons.

Ugly holiday sweaters are bad enough. But ugly holiday sweater cookies ? Isn't that taking things a bit too far? Apparently not for Bel Air High and MICA alums Brennen and Zoe Lukas, whose perhaps-too-colorful Christmas confections were spotlighted on NBC's "Today" show this morning. During a segment on gifts under $30, "style expert" Lilliana Vazquez gave the cookies a quick shout-out. "How cute are these cookies?" Vazquez gushed, noting they were available in both Christmas and Hanukkah themes.

The proprietor of Handbags in the City has a fashion sense that favors the classical, whether he's wearing a belted Burberry trench coat with a standup collar, lounging in a Mulberry cashmere sweater or modeling a jacket lined with shearling. And Sparky's owner, George Sakellaris, also in Burberry, doesn't look too shabby, either. "He's a little old man, and he loves dressing up," says Sakellaris, co-owner of the store at 840 Aliceanna St., the shop where Sparky, a 13-year-old Brussels Griffon, can be found most days.

If the Old Farmer's Almanac's prediction of a cold winter ahead is correct, at least one tree in Hampden will be snug against the blasts of wintry winds, plummeting temperatures and snow. Monday, while most folks celebrated the unofficial end of summer with a last dip at the beach, a walk in the woods or a backyard picnic, a group of Hampden knitters - young and old - were busy wrapping a flowering cherry tree on 36th Street in a knitted sweater. It replaced a sweater that had been put on last year and removed in June so the tree could "breathe" over the summer, said Sue Caldwell, owner of Lovelyarns, a Hampden yarn and knitting supply shop.

You go ahead and pick your dumbest "As seen on TV" product. The Presto salad shooter that shreds veggies like they've been blasted with an AK-47? Mighty Putty, "the super-powered epoxy"? The Get-A-Grip bath handle? I've got one that makes those look like they were designed by NASA scientists. This would be the Snuggie, the ridiculous "Blanket That Has Sleeves!" featured in that goofy commercial that airs all the time now. If you haven't seen it, picture various smiling people talking on the phone, watching TV, working on their laptops, etc., all while swaddled in a robe-like fleece that makes them look like a cult of blissed-out friars.

How, precisely, to dress for a recession? Modestly, resourcefully, with an eye toward vintage. Moth-eaten sweaters will stage a comeback. Holes are huge. Worn shoes, too. Hand-me-downs, share-arounds, what-was-I-thinking and if-it-still-fits-wear-it will out-Vogue Vogue. The old-money look will be the epitome of style - without, understandably, the money part. Slippers are a sound purchase, unlike stocks, as many Americans won't be traveling anywhere with their farcical dollars. We will be spending much, much more time at home, with the heat turned way, way down.

On a recent day this summer, it was 92 degrees, hotter than usual for the time of year. But that didn't stop Mount Vernon's Christopher Howarth from throwing on a brand-new, long-sleeved Missoni jacket when he went out after work to walk his dog, Baron. "It's definitely a fall jacket," says Howarth, 33, a project manager at Johnson Berman, an interior design and architectural firm. "But there was a cool breeze in the air, so I thought it was a good opportunity to wear it." Breeze schmeeze.
