It’s a great way to show off your legs (including the tights that you might have on over them). Don’t forget to tie a cotton or silk scarf around your neck.

Something is very sweet about this outfit. We’re thinking that it’s how the loosely fitting skirt works so well with a fitted cotton shirt like this one.

Darling. Absolutely darling! And while the dress is sultry in its own way, it’s the combination of the pink and the grey that make us want to run out and get something similar to it. Our recommendation is to get shoes that are the same color as the coat. That will make everything appear to be more…purposeful.

All one color is another trend right now. That’s why this season you can never too much of one hue, including when it comes to grey.
