WLD Styling Guide: Shelley’s Lace Cardi for Day
I took a quick trip over to our local community college the other day and was pleasantly surprised by the outfits I saw several of the female students wearing. One was dressed in a jeans/velveteen blazer combo with a lovely colorful scarf to finish it off and the other wore a long sweater dress with flat boots under a well cut jean jacket. Both were lovely, appropriate outfits that made me think that these girls were serious about whatever it was they were studying.
Others that I saw….not so much. Pajama pants, bedroom slippers , oversized hoodies , floppy men’s t-shirts, exposed tattoos above the butt all say I DON’T CARE. If you’re a young person educating yourself for your career, practicing dressing yourself for that future is time well invested.
Appropriate doesn’t have to equal stuffy, expensive (any of the pieces shown can be found in a wide range of price points) or boring. Shelley’s Lace Cardi is a pretty way to get there.
