How To: Dress Like A Lady

Head-to-toe glamour yes, but she’s ready for anything the day may throw her way – The Lady. She works hard and looks good. Her uniform is easy to adopt just make sure you’ve got the confidence to pull it off because she’s no wall flower.

The cinched waist:

The simplest way to achieve hourglass curves belts do all the hard work while you reap the benefits. Don’t be afraid to play with shape and exaggerated silhouettes, Michael Kors and Bottega Venetta show you how to work with peplums for a structured elegant twist on the look.

The full skirt:

A forgiving friend and ally this flattering silhouette works for every shape and size. Easy glamour oozes from every fold and layer of this staple in the Lady’s arsenal. Dress it up with a classic white shirt for an office appropriate look or keep things casual with a cropped t-shirt, a little flash of bronzed tummy and a bomber jacket.


Underwear as outerwear is perfectly acceptable this season, see Marc Jacobs Boudoir babes at Louis Vuitton for inspiration. Lacy negligees and silky shorts barely covered up in fur or floor length coats slung around the shoulder. Whether you’re just starting you day or only getting home, push the boundaries by pairing soft silks and satins with chunky knits, hard edged accessories and tough leathers.

Off the shoulder:

From Nina Ricci to Jonathan Saunders a flash of collar bone and a hint of shoulder is all the skin this season’s lady needs to show. Whether nonchalantly shrugged of the shoulder or an accidental on purpose slip the focus is on the décolletage. Keep it classy with longer line silhouettes, pencil skirts that creep just over the knee but hug your curves to preserve your reputation and keep the whole look balanced.

    The way the pink dress is worn is like a lady?

    I agree that your definition of “a lady” is something to aim for, but I find the term a little unfortunate. Not that I have a better suggestion.
