Reader Request: Wearing Scarves and Necklaces Together

Reader Sarah sent me this question:

I love making and wearing necklaces. Between my own creations and the necklaces I have purchased, I have a large collection of necklaces, and wear a necklace most days. As a result, I have been slow to take up the scarf craze. Lately, I have seen women combining a necklace with a scarf. Can you offer tips on how to do this?

This is a tough one, but I’ll do my best!

HOOOWEEE, that’s an oldie from the archive. This represents one of the few times I’ve done a necklace/scarf combo myself, and it looks fun if a little haphazard. I stole the idea from a catalog page and recreated it as closely as I could, right down to the long pearls and vintage-print scarf. READ MORE

Reader Request: What to Wear on a Long Flight

What to wear on a long airplane flight

Sarah V had this request:

I would love to get your take on what to wear for a long flight. I want to look nice but be comfortable and not get too hot.

I can’t say that I’ve got any amazing or unusual tricks for long flight comfort, but I’m happy to share my formula!

Knits

Since long flights generally involve long stretches of time spent in airports before and after, picking soft, stretchy fabrics will be key. I stick to knits – jersey, ponte, and various sweater knits all of which can look chic and sophisticated in the right styles and cuts. READ MORE

Clothes that Make You Feel Good

Flattering clothes are fab, but there are loads of other ways you can dress to FEEL GOOD!
We talk a lot about figure flattery around here. There are more requests for posts related to traditional figure-flattery priorities than just about any other topic, so many discussions point in that direction. But I hope that this message is always clear: YOU get to choose your own figure-flattery priorities, even if they go against the traditional grain. You are the one wearing the clothes and feeling the feelings, and that means you get to make the choices. READ MORE
