It’s difficult to start thinking about fall trends  when we’re in the middle of summer but in the ever-changing world of fashion, you’re always looking ahead a season. Or two. One trend that you can expect to see come fall is ladylike vintage. Designers are taking cues from iconic styles like Dior’s New Look with its nipped waists and full skirts and the icy elegance of Hitchcock’s mid-century beauties. Throw in a pair of prim pumps, a structured bag, and the ultimate in ladylike accessories, a pair of gloves to do your best Grace Kelly imitation. To keep from looking too costumey, inject little touches of contemporary edge into your look like skinny leather pants with your penny loafers or sky-high leather stilettos with your otherwise ladylike full skirt.

    I love these ladylike pieces and those loafers are perfect for bringing an androgynous balance to the feminine styles 🙂

    Take care,
