How to Build a Classic Outfit

  1. Karen says:

    You are a lovely woman, but do yourself a favor and go back to the last short hairstyle. This one adds 10 years.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      In the past two years, I’ve had several hairstyles. Always love to change things up. But for as many women who like my hair shorter, just as many love the latest do. Go figure! But hairstyles don’t make us look older or younger, nor does makeup or clothes. What does happen is we become stale and stodgy if we don’t keep current and on-trend, which means trying a new hairstyle every so often, fresh makeup and adding a trend or two to our wardrobes.

      • Carolina Girl says:

        Well said. I like your hair this way too, Beth … I guess I like the old adage, “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything.”

      It takes a lot of courage for a person to step up with a channel and present themselves. As women of a certain age we can do better by reserving judgement and being supportive of personal style choices.

    Do you have a source for the heels?

    Hi Beth – Great post on a classic. Where are your sling backs from?

  4. Carolina Girl says:

    Great outfit, Beth! Truly timeless!
    Is there info. on your two-tone slingbacks?

    I don’t like the pants I like the color but they’re too short I like them to come down a little bit more below the ankle for the fall

    Just love a classic outfit! Since I retired from full time teaching 3 years ago I’ve been purging my wardrobe and concentrating on building a capsule wardrobe with a few fun pieces. Your posts help guide me in that direction. Thank you!

    Great outfit. I love the combination of black with camel.
    How would you incorporate color into this classic outfit or wouldn’t you? …especially for right now in summer weather, where I wouldn’t wear a scarf (too hot).
