Overall Impressions

April 7, 2014

Overalls, once the go-to outfit of farmers and toddlers, has made it’s way into the fashion scene. This time around, they have a sexy, almost sophisticated edge, taking the workwear staple to a whole new level. Being a woman of a certain age, I’m fighting the urge to give this trend a try. But looking at these chic ladies, I’m thinking  I can rock this look. You be the judge:

Donna Karan sent these overalls down this runway for DKNY this spring, adding a polished blazer and trench coat to complete the outfit.

A slim fit, high heeled booties and a great flyaway sweater give these overalls a casual, yet pulled together  sensibility.

How chic is this women, walking through the Tuileries in Paris, with gold toed pumps, a clutch bag,and her red coat tossed nonchalantly over her shoulders?

Leave it to Alexander Wang to pair a leather bra top with his white overalls. A little skin makes the look sexy!

Blair Eadie of the style blog Atlantic Pacific is known for her ladylike chic. Her messy undo, pointy stilettos and red lips and bag give this outfit an air of sophisticated ease.

Want to try this look yourself? Just abide by a few simple rules.

Overalls should be on the slim side. Nothing oversized or sloppy.

Add a touch of the unexpected, through accessories, makeup or a great piece of outerwear.

Roll the legs and add a chic heel.

Accessorize to the hilt. Shoes, bags and scarves play a huge role in upping the fashion ante. Keeping it chic is key.

Take a little extra care with your hair and makeup. This isn’t the time to get sloppy.

Keep the tops fitted, or go ahead and show some skin. Let the world know there is a woman under there.

Shouldering It

October 2, 2013

The weather is changing rapidly. One week it’ s pleasantly cool in New York City, and then suddenly, it’s back in the 80’s again. It starts off in the 50’s and 60’s in the early morning, and hits near tropical temperatures by mid afternoon. Deciding what to wear is a challenge. I mean, it’s October after all!

No worries, we are here to help!

honestly, WTF

This season, the chicest way to wear to your coat or jacket, is not to wear it all. That’s right; just toss it nonchalantly over your shoulders and go, as these fashionistas on the street are doing.  It ‘s a simple case of form meeting function, with form leading the way.
