Ask Belle: April 30th Roundup
Apr 30, 2012
Belle-I’ve got a question I’m desperately hoping you can help with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one, but every time I wear a skirt to work (typically your basic pencil skirt from the Limited, J Crew, etc.) it looks adorable. Until I start to walk. By the time I’ve even made it out of the Metro station, my skirt has started to stage an uprising, twisting halfway around my body, riding up my waist, etc. I spend the large majority of my time while walking anywhere in a skirt trying to discreetly pull it back on keel and forward facing. Is it the way I walk? The way the skirts fit?Any guidance/help offered would be really appreciated.Thanks!
Dear Belle,I need to buy a light jacket for the cool evenings. Are jean jackets faux pas, or can I still own one? Any other suggestions?Callie
No, denim jackets are not faux pas. However, if you’re going to wear one, you should choose a classic style in a medium to dark wash. The lighter the wash the more dated it will look.
