Morning Line: September 3

Sep 3, 2015

Burgundy is hot for fall again.  A pencil skirt is a great place to start.  Wear it with grey, camel, navy and ivory.  Or go for a color and wear it with mint, purple, or blush.

    Hi Belle- Hope you had a nice (but too short) break. Could you do a post on wearing a burgundy pencil skirt with tights? I know the 2-3 rule, but I always have a tough time with this one.

    Thanks!

    Whaaaat, I’m accidentally on-trend with my skirt today? And I’m wearing a blush top! Watch out, the sky might be falling.

    I think I speak for at least a handful of your readers, but thank you for teaching us how to dress ourselves. It’s a little silly, but when I realized that I was wearing oh, precisely what you were recommending, it was like, “Yes! Success! I’m finally starting to get it!”

    Also I absolutely second the request for advice on tights with a burgundy or oxblood skirt. Are our only options black tights/black shoes?

    • Jess says:

      I had the exact same whaaaaat moment! Just received a burgundy pencil skirt that I ordered last week, and feel unreasonably pleased with myself. Maybe there’s hope for those of us “learning” to be stylish after all.

      And I third the tights request – especially curious about shoes (as I’m a black tights only kind of gal anyway). And some flat options would certainly be welcome!

    Burgundy and purple? Could you show us a few looks? I don’t know what shade of purple would go with burgundy…

    I never in a million years would have come up with pairing mint and burgundy, and I couldn’t picture it mentally. But… so cute! Thanks for the tip!

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

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 […]

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.
