what makes a classic? this is a question i’ve asked myself several times this month as opens in a new windowTalbots Fall Classics Guest Editor. so who better to ask for advice than my classics partner? opens in a new windowTalbots is a brand built on classic wardrobe essentials who stayed true to their vision since 1947. according to opens in a new windowTalbots, a classic is a statement maker because it inspires you to make a statement. it has character. it doesn’t need to be loud because it speaks volumes. and my favorite quote: the beauty of classic style is that it can be worn differently by everyone. can i hear an amen?! yes, you can take any classic item and put your spin on it each and every time you wear it. that’s what i love most about the classics. and this is how you keep a perennial favorite like a opens in a new windowsheath dress from becoming stale or stodgy. all we need to do to keep the classics alive and fresh is to add our personality to it. an easy way to do that is with accessories.
today’s ootd is a perfect example of a timeless, simple and chic classic put into play. enter an opens in a new windowindigo Ponte sheath dress that’s perfect for a day at the office. this dress is tailored yet breathable and flattering thanks to a hint of stretch with Ponte fabric. a opens in a new windowsheath dress in a neutral color is a blank canvas. and that’s where the fun comes in as you can add or subtract accessories to your heart’s content. pop a blazer over the top for a polished nine-to-five look. or let it fly solo accompanied by a opens in a new windowchic scarf and opens in a new windowstatement handbag. have a little fun with pattern mixing as i’ve done today with opens in a new windowstriped block heel pumps and opens in a new windowpaisley scarf. or skip the scarf altogether and wear a opens in a new windowpendant necklace. the choice is yours when an outfit starts with a sophisticated, stylish, and classic opens in a new windowPonte sheath dress.
