Why: Lucky Magazine in its July issue picks up on a style that encompasses two of this seasonâ€™s hottest trends: the vest plus dress. This style -â€“ structured boyish charm on top and flirty femininity on the bottom -â€“ is a great fashion choice for those occasions that require just the slightest hint of buttoned-up solicitude.
This Gold Hawk dress and jeweled vest went over smashingly at my cousinâ€™s high school graduation. And by smashingly, I mean it was universally appreciated by both 17-year-old boys and 70-year-old grandmothers; for different reasons, of course. I recommend you pick one up for an upcoming graduation/wedding shower/family brunch/Bat Mitzvah of your own.
