If you speak French or are a French Cinema fan, I hope you’ll excuse my fashion pun. The Bell Sleeve has been coming on strong the past few seasons. I especially like how it can turn a somewhat simple top into something special.
The slip dress is all over the runways, magazine editorials, top blogs. But unless you’re 20 something, “winging it” with this look is not for the faint of heart, especially over 50. My solution? Your favorite tee. It allows you to dress with the support and coverage you want and wow with a look that’s of the moment.
As a child of NYC in the 60s and 70s, we were there when when graffiti took over the landscape. I have to confess that in a very renegade moment, I had my own “tag,” which was “sonrisa” — Spanish for smile. I know it’s not legal, but it’s often still pretty inspiring. Fortunately for us, someone who was parked where we wanted to shoot was kind enough to move their car. City manners!
As we head into Labor Day Weekend, I’m taking a last look at some of my favorite looks, all featuring flats. Watch for how key pieces from Summer live on into Fall.
