Turn a traditionally sweet pinafore dress into something sexy and cool by layering it over a streamlined top in a gorgeously bold hue.
Pairing two pieces this roomy can make for a perfect, breezy combination—if you get the proportions right.
This breezy silhouette is as pared-down and straight as can be—which means it needs to hang exactly right. Here's what to look for.
One of the most fun ideas we've come across recently: putting a frilly camisole over (rather than under) a delicate blouse.
Both billowy and covered-up, these gathered-neck blouses are totally chic.
We saw this styling trick once on the runway at Marc Jacobs and fell in love with it instantly.
There's a lot of extra fabric around the middle here, so wear these skirts with the belt tied snugly around the top part of your hips.
These look totally overpowering at first glance, but breaking them them up puts everything in proportion.
When both pieces are black, this combination looks like a chic, streamlined bootie.
Done right, this new mix of proportions has a great thrown-on cool—and a whole lot of sex appeal.
