Swing Over Cling

Eyelet swing jacket, Forever 21. Missoni-esque faux wrap dress, Lipstick. Peeptoe pumps, Antonio Melani. Purse, Crown Lewis (vintage). Earrings, Xhilaration.

I love these little swing jackets that first appeared last spring. It’s important, though, to wear them over a lean layer so one’s form isn’t lost. Conversely, topping a clingy dress with a swingy top keeps one from showing too much form. The two silhouettes were made for one other.



I’m carrying my lovely vintage purse again and wearing my lazy girl’s hair-do.

I absolutely agree about the swingy (and sometimes cropped) jacket with a leaner silhouette. It's definitely one of my favorite trends of the past year or two.

The colors of this dress are great on you and your lazy girl's hair is so chic and sophisticated. L

Please, I need a tutorial on the "lazy girl hairdo"--I love it. I do something similar, but much less chic!
