Classy Sporty Girl
It’s about time someone introduced sweatshirts into evening and work attire. Pair your favorite knee length pencil skirt with your coziest, baggy crop sweatshirt for the perfect mix of fitted and slouchy. If you don’t have any cropped sweatshirts, a quick snip off the bottom of one of your favorite sweatshirts won’t do much harm if you’re committed to making it your crop go-to. Going to a business lunch? Impress in heels. But, for a slightly more casual date, break out your classiest pair of tennis shoes (didn’t you hear those are back too?) to really sport up the look.
Lazy Girly Girl
Girly girls need a day off from dressing to the nines just like the rest of us. They seem to have found their relaxation outlet in the embellished and quirky isle, but paired with a skater skirt and heels, couldn’t be more polished. For the true day-off girly girl, a pair of matching Tom’s should do the trick to give your heel tortured feet a break.
