Meet The Parents
The combination of a classic turtleneck sweater and midi skirt is undeniably chic—the length is modest but the leather texture adds interest. Choose a long sock boot for additional coverage on the legs and to streamline the skirt's A-line silhouette. Adorn with small hoop earrings and a sophisticated velvet cross-body bag.
Even if the setting is casual, you want to look elevated. Choose a medium to dark wash flared jean to pair with a ladylike pussy-bow blouse. Drape a longline tweed blazer over the shoulders and complete with tonal accessories.
A ruffled, feminine frock in a pretty marigold hue makes a statement without trying too hard. Top it off with a fuzzy coat for warmth and a touch of opulence. Finish with an adorable wristlet pouch and velvet stacked-heel pumps.
