I’ve had ‘ladylike’ on my mind recently. Ironically, as I get older, I’m not as drawn to super feminine and fastidiously put-together looks– I worry they age me. But there are times and places where I need to look polished and grown-up, and ladylike actually suits me.
A dress is always a safe bet and this season there are a plethora of good ones. However, the best ones are, for the most part, sleeveless. I have never been a huge fan of sleeveless, but a feather-weight cardigan thrown over my shoulders makes it feel less bare. Or a trim little jacket works too, at least until the weather warms up.
