We’ve now covered the first 4 rules mentioned in THIS article. Time to move on to numbers 5 and 6;
- No White After Labor Day
- Don’t Mix Prints
- No Heels for Tall Girls
- Your Handbag and Shoes Should Not Match
- Ditch the Mom Jeans
- Designer Bags are the Only Way to Go
5) Hmm. This is a hard one. If, by “Mom Jeans”, you mean jeans that have high or natural waists, I am in favor of bringing them back. But, that is coming from someone who has a naturally high-ish waistline, and looks best in higher waistlines. Plus, I am only 5’4″, so my legs can easily look really short. Wearing slightly higher waists immediately elongates my silhouette.
As a related note: I have never much liked the low-rise trend, and think it is generally unbecoming. It widens the look of the hips AND the waist, and makes “vertically challenged” girls look even shorter. But, I digress…
What would YOU say when it comes to ladies’ jeans styles?
6) As you probably know, I’m not overly particular about the labels on my clothing or accessories. I really love that moment when I realize that what I’ve just purchased for a couple of dollars at a thrift store is a designer brand. But, I also love a lot of my belongings that are nowhere near designer. I will say, I’ve been a little frustrated with some cheap handbags. Handles break, zippers fail, etc.
What do you think? Is it better to splurge a little for a good purse?
