Whether you’re graduating or getting married, now is the time of year when women are shopping in full force. You know that your photo will be taken hundreds of times and no matter how hard you try, you will never outlive a bad, dated outfit. But how do you dress when you want to be stylish, but not so stylish that your dress will be out of style before you sober up?
Here are our picks for the classics. The very few looks that will have staying power.
The Woman in the Fitted Tuxedo
It’s not a look that every woman can or wants to pull off, but you see this silhouette coming back over and over. Madonna, Annie Lenox, Marlene Dietrich, they all rocked it, so can you.
The Halter Dress
Made famous by Halston in the 70s, this look has really never gone away. It’s sexy without being sleazy, elegant without trying to hard. Also, it moves with you so it’ll help you make the entrance that nobody will forget.
Little Black Dress
What could be simpler? For your money, this is the dress that you will wear over and over again, so buy the most flattering, best quality you can afford.
