To anyone who has ever declared that 'Fashion is fleeting,' I humbly disagree. To begin, the most fashionable item you could wear, or own, if one that you feel absolutely stunning in. After all, how do you think bell bottoms have made so many comebacks through the years? Some teenage in Milan decides to pair them with a set of killer stilettos and rock the pavement like it was a high fashion runway. Instant turned heads. After all, you can put on a 10k dollar frock, and wash away in the background of label free fashionistas if you don't have the confidence to wear it.
The biggest key to fashion confidence, in my opinion, is comfort- Fashion Lie #2: The more uncomfortable, the better it looks. Wrong! You can have comfort and fashion as the same time, even more, you are likely to rock those shoes so much more fiercely when they aren't cramping your feet and causing calluses. Believe it or not, fashion is as effortless as finding those key wardrobe pieces you feel confident in, and rocking them every which way all year round. Having the perfect LBD, little black dress (or little pink dress, who am I to judge you?) can be the key to head-turning appearances, or simply a fashionable low key afternoon with the girls. Available in 4 vibrant hues, and classic black, Knot Your Mother's Dress, by Monroe & Main, is a classic example of great fashion.
My only challenge, and Jay will argue this, with the Knot Your Mother's Dress, was styling the bust. Featuring and Empire Waist, the 'knot' of this dress offers a higher waistline that is friendly to full figures, but also accentuates cleavage. I can easily layer a tank top beneath, or a cardigan over, for more demure events. In a pinch, a great scarf will add instant print flavor to the outfit, and also deflect some of the attention from one's cleavage (if desired). Those with shorter torsos and pear shapes will benefit from adding a sparkly tie or belt to the mid-section, which can add some instant length and proportion.
What Daughter Says: Dress for what fits you, then let your confidence be your best accessory!
