Ask Shopbop: A Class Act

Blog_12-07-18_reunion

I have a class reunion coming up, and I want an outfit that looks effortless, yet fantastic. Can you help?

It just so happens that I have a reunion coming up as well! Reunion outfits require a thoughtful approach. I put my stock in age-appropriate, timeless wardrobe essentials that incorporate right amount of trend. It’s so important to be comfortable and true to yourself. This is not the moment to test run “the new you.”

If the reunion is right around the corner, go with a fresh Jenni Kayne shift dress. Universally flattering and versatile, the shift is a good go-to for ladies of all age groups. Pair it back to sleek Loeffler Randal flats, toss on an open-knit cardigan, and reach for simple ginette_ny jewelry. For a casual, late summer or fall reunion, I love the idea of sharp denim, a great moto jacket, and heeled booties. An IRO jacket brings a little color to the look while still staying chic and neutral. If your get-together is more of a dressed-up affair, then a sleek knit 3.1 Phillip Lim dress is always a great option. The sleeves ensure you won’t be cold as we head into fall, and the length and fitted silhouette give it a bit of attitude. Pair it with a heeled bootie, easy-to-manage clutch, and a striped Boy. by Band of Outsiders blazer.
