The Classic Bits

Silk scarves, ladylike dresses, a crewneck sweater over a button-down, a turtleneck under a blazer, and headbands abound. I’m not a fan of the padded headband or a pussy bow, but all the other classic bits get a thumbs up from yours truly. The trick is to not go overboard and risk looking vintagey. Below some looks from the SS19 collections that keep these classic elements modern.

Thank you @tomsamet for the fab pic of your parents.

  • I especially like the photo of Princess Caroline as a little girl with her mama Grace Kelly, both dressed to go out–not over the top, but no one in ripped jeans, logo t’s, preachy messaging, or athleisure. The women in all photos, past and present, look pulled together, ladylike and . . . modest! Hurray for all that! But I may have reached saturation on Jackie O photos – more and more, I suspect ‘Jackie’s style and taste’ was Bunny Mellon’s style and taste.

  • Jackie´s style is eternal!! Please, continue posting her photos!

  • I try to not post a lot of vintage pictures, but this collage is illustrating a point. If modest dressing is the backlash to the Kardashians’ influence on womenswear, I’m all in.

  • The sweater and skirt with the godets is stunning, as is the model wearing them.
