The Season's Trends
Ruffles - tuxedo shirt type ruffles and gentle ruffles on the cuffs of sleeves
The Color Purple
Gray - especially as a neutral
Plaid - Clinton wore a gray plaid jacket over a striped shirt in shades of purple. ('Can't believe I left my battery home - but I'm not bitter.)
And, yay!!!, shrugs are still in! I love a shrug!
More tips from Clinton:
If you wear a colored shoe, carry a neutral bag and vice versa.
Have a few great outfits that fit well instead of a multitude of ill-fitting pieces.
Layers add interest to any outfit.
Regardless of heel height, pants should be a 1/2 " from the floor.
(This is my personal pet peeve: high heels with pants that are too short!)
Lastly - ban the T-shirts! Wear blouses instead!
Soon to come - my personal tips for what to wear if you are a short-y like I am!
