New “Lady”

The bow blouse, kitten heel and top handle bag are all typically found hanging in the closet of the “Uptown Girl”. However, inspired by the Pre Fall shows (and what we noticed on the street), the way we suggest you wear them this season feels anything but girly. Meet the modern feminine.

THE LOW HEEL

Pair a kitten heel with distressed denim and a cutaway shoulder for a downtown edge.

THE MID-HEMLINE

Instead of pairing a calf-length skirt with the expected ladylike heel, throw on a boot for a cooler, more casual finish.

THE LADY BAG

Make the lady bag a little less “lady” with a frayed jean or menswear separates.

THE BOW BLOUSE

Update the bow blouse with a wide legged pant and a cool satin slide for a modern approach to a classic top.
