10th Commandment: May 15

Dear Belle,

The pile of fashion magazines on my nightstand says that tie dye is back in style.  That can’t possibly be true…can it?

River Island Tie Dye Mirror Print Dress ($43)

Why, yes, tie-dye is in style this season.  But this is not necessarily a bad thing.

The dress above is a cool mix of Alexander McQueen’s prints and the freeform pattern of tie-dye.  Even name designers like Elie Tahari, DvF and Tory Burch have embraced the power of tie-dye.  And the colors of this strapless dress from Intermix are sublime. But since I don’t think this is a trend with multi-season sticking power, let’s keep to the less expensive choices, shall we?

I like this London Times dress, this flirty orange dress and this purple maxi.

If you’re not looking for a dress, I love the mix of colors on this top and this cowl neck top would look nice with navy or bright separates.  I also like the colors on this tie-dye maxi.  Or if you just want a hint of tie-dye, try this BCBG scarf.

Plus size?  This INC dress has just a hint of pattern on a solid field, it’s really pretty.  Petite?  I like the mix of colors and textures on this crewneck tee.

Look for Less

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
