Style mavens are always obsessing about that one thing. Today, baby, it’s retro rage. This trend isn’t quite the front-runner, but like the current list of Republican candidates, it’s fair game. So, if you feel the need to don ruby-red lips or bake a casserole, then you’re ready:
Real Housewife: Full, billowing skirts and dresses could not be cooler. They should hit below the knee and have ample volume (structured, wide pleats are great). Make sure your waist looks itty-bitty to balance out the bottom, and consider a bright color like orange to really flip your lid.
Sock Hop: Look for pumps w/ rounder toes, thick stacked-heels and bows galore to make any plain jane outfit better. Or, the old-school oxford is re-done with a killer heel and pairs well with cropped jeans and a button down. Even the latest retro sneaks will turn heads, daddy-o.
Lady Luck: Too much retro? Opt for small, ladylike extras to feed your rage. Structured satchels, silk scarves, fedoras, thick corset belts, cat-eye shades, pearls, and of course, wrist-length gloves. Now that’s peachy-keen.
Retro is so tomorrow. Now go do your thing, lollipop.
