Suiting UP…Vintage Style

Hello Monday, andddd Happy Presidents Day. As many of us are still working from home and in no need to SUIT UP for the work day I thought a little style inspiration  to give you a much needed style lift…might be in order.

Here’s a look back at some lovely Vintage suiting courtesy of Lilli Ann (an upscale shop that offered women a bevy of beautiful clothing-back in the day).and some style tips to keep you motivated going forward.

When all is said and done I think we can all agree that what we choose to wear each day can absolutely  affect how we feel. A mood boost is sometimes as simple as dressing up or at the very least looking at some beautiful style inspiration. Enjoy!

Style Notes:

  • Great tailoring
  • Cinched in waist to define figure,
  • V-Neckline
  • Tapered skirting (Elongates the body  and makes one appear taller and slimmer).

 

“Good taste” stands the test of time.

Enjoy and Happy Monday.
