Dress Like a Lady

My grandma always gave great fashion advice. After all, she grew up in Europe at a time when women really dressed elegantly. The one piece of advice that stuck with me was to always dress like a lady no matter what the occasion.

A few days ago, I was skimming through Atlantic-Pacific’s blog and came across the outfit pictured below. My grandmother’s fashion advice instantly came into mind. The bow detail, the dress, the accessories – Blair’s outfit was the definition of “lady-like”.

I was inspired to recreate Blair’s fab look by adding my own twist to the outfit. I chose a full-skirt Tory Burch dress for a more feminine touch, a bow belt (DIY), a leather clutch, some gold bling, and a pair of studded sandals.

Of course, a lady-like look can also be achieved with a tailored skirt or a great pair of fitted trousers or jeans. What is your favorite clothing article or accessory which makes you feel “Like a Lady“? Do share!
