Mini’s competition: The midi takes 1st place! Hits mid-calf and has a ladylike, retro vibe. Full swing skirts with pleats are very trendy right now. Try a peplum jacket to define your waist and pair with tall pumps or booties to avoid stocky leg.
Pretty ugly: plunging necklines are gross! The real winner is a higher neckline. Pleated collar or bow-tie silk blouses and brightly colored crew-necks are gorgeous. Try wearing chunky baubles over them for a modern twist.Loafer love: old school and sort of dorky—what’s not to love? Pennies, oxfords, and driving moccasins are chic and comfy. Make it modern in snakeskin or pastel-colored patent. Black still rules, so no haters please.
Pish-pash-prude: scarves are so French. Opt for long and wide in a variety of weights. Prints are great for those whose clothes are a blank canvas. Try a bird motif or opt for polka-dots.
To all those naysayers: cover up! You can look cool and hold all the cards.stylingstage suggests:
