You know that one piece in your closet that you’ve had for years but never wear? Our genius stylist Lisa calls them wardrobe misfits—and she’s on a mission to get them out of hiding and into heavy rotation. Her first challenge? Our awesome freelancer (and blog contributor) Fiorella’s crazy-sleeved dress.
“I unearthed this early-1980s sparkly knit dress at a vintage store in Venice, Italy two years ago, and I’ve worn it exactly zero times since. I usually love me some serious sleeves but something about the severe ones on this dress have given me pause. Also, I want to be able to layer and accessorize it so it doesn’t get relegated to special-occasion wear.”
“A chambray shirt is the penicillin to any tricky piece. Heritage accessories make it cool for daytime.”
Don’t you just love a happy ending? Fiorella, we hope to see you rocking this look ASAP.
