There’s a specific style to weekend panache. I am not talking about black sneakers and black leggings.
Ten years ago, I noticed no one was wearing shoes. I’ve tried to erase the image of me crossing Chicago’s elegant Michigan Avenue in black flip flops. Now few stores sell pants with pockets. I love pockets.
Back to weekend garb. Three options because I know you’d like this to be a video:
1. An ankle length skirt (with an elasticized waistline) worn with an over-sized chunky sweater and beat-up white sneakers (go to the park and smear them with dirt). A plaid cape would be sharp (I bought mine in the tween department at a department store.)
2. Black wide-legged jeans with a white shirt and loads and loads of beads. Toss on a vest to the knees. Shoes should have swagger and balance the heft of the wide jeans.
3. Anything but black. Love melon or green pants with a super thin tee-shirt and an olive drab safari jacket. Play up the prep with a neckerchief, tassel loafer and no socks.
(By the way, talking about weekend style is a great conversation-starter even if you do sound a little shallow. Not that you should care.)
Tassel loafers for women are beyond fabulous.
