Phillip Lim fringe dress.

Phillip Lim fringe dress.

I know, I know. There’s still a lot of lace out there and it’s a lovely way to cover your arms if you don’t want to go sleeveless, but like I said last month, it’s tired and cliché. Everyone has that royal blue dress with the see-thru lace over a matching colored slip. So, let me suggest one of my favorite looks for the all-daunting upcoming holiday season–something literally kicky with enough variation in style that people won’t notice if more than one of you is wearing it. Try a pretty metallic dress with a steely fringe, or a simple Phillip Lim black cocktail dress with a feathery fringe. It’s an especially good look if you’ve got good legs and even better if you want to distract from your arms. Also, it’s a way to minimize accessories as the fringe is an accessory itself. I saw a really cute black Milly dress at Nieman’s with a sweet fringe or, your bank account permitting, you can go upscale with a Chanel fringe. Here are a couple of suggested designs. I’m partial to the cowboy look myself, but that’s just my thing.

I’ve been looking for the perfect staple blouses and Dress has come to the rescue with a new array of choices from Equipment.  French designer Christian Restoin, the original founder of Equipment, was the first to bring the “men’s shirt” to women’s fashion in 1975, and still turns out timeless, yet contemporary options for this inexhaustible wardrobe staple.  |

I’m in love with the slightly sheer options. LOVE, I said.
