how to style a maxi skirt, part 4: oooo shiny!

black and gold and roses



Even solid colored maxi skirts can feel quite dramatic when you’re used to a more subdued silhouette. But what about a maxi skirt that’s bold, bright, and shiny?

Just because something has a little shine doesn’t mean you can’t wear it during the day!

As always, it’s in the styling. Paired with a tailored jacket and the classy and understated moira tote, this rose print skirt is ready for daytime wear. If at the end of the day you find yourself at a cocktail reception, even better!

stripes go with everything, part 5: advanced print mixing

how to mix prints: stripes go with everything



Stripes go with everything…so when it comes time to experiment with mixing prints, why not mix a bunch of stripes together?

Wearings prints (and mixing them!) can permanently solve your problem of what to wear to work without looking boring.

This blouse and top combo is certainly not for wallflowers. But when you get down to it, all that’s happening here is black and white stripes with some red thrown in. Simple, classic, but in this particular combination, incredibly bold and certainly not plain!

The moira tote is a perfect tote bag to compliment this celebration of stripes.  Moira is also all about black and white and red (with a little bit of surprise gold in the lining!), and windowpane check is just another version of stripes, after all.

Does this kind of print mixing seem impossible? Maybe you want to start off with some simpler experiments…subscribe to the Insider’s List and I’ll send you 7 style experiments you can try right now. You’ll be fearlessly wearing prints in no time, and feeling happy and confident while you do it!




the denim dress formula: in black and white

the denim dress formula: black and white


The denim dress formula works because denim dresses come in so many different styles and colors. Don’t limit yourself just to dark indigo blue!

This dress has the lines of a traditional collared shirt, which means you can style it just like any button-down.

I wanted a dramatic look that was a little fancy and a little sophisticated, so of course I styled this dress with the moira tote. Its bold windowpane check hits all those points.

Chanel flats and ropes of pearls finish off the look, and also perfectly coordinate with the black denim and natural canvas of the moira tote bag.

versatile style: bold and bright for work and play

Experimenting with prints is a great way to express yourself and to stand out from the crowd!

Wearing black and white stripes is the easiest way to start wearing prints, which is what makes the moira tote bag so great. She will go with pretty much everything you already own, AND instantly make any outfit more interesting. What’s more versatile than that?

Check out two looks below I styled around the moira tote bag, all about how mixing prints can help you look good effortlessly.


the moira tote at play:

a day off in the summer


Remember, a black and white stripe is exactly like wearing solid black, (only better!) so never fear adding one to any print! I wore a top just like this with a floral skirt yesterday, and it just made me feel so much more stylish and cute than a plain top ever could.

The moira tote adds a third print, which for many of you is unheard of, I know. But it works here because it’s just another black and white stripe. Bolder than a plain bag, and a guarantee you won’t look like everyone else who bought the same cute skirt you did!


the moira tote at work:

bold and bright at the office


There’s no reason you can’t be just as bold and bright at work as you are on the weekend! This Pucci print dress needs very little to accompany it, but there are some unexpected choices you can make when it comes to accessories that will help you stand out from the wallflowers at your office.

Most people would add a plain black blazer or sweater, but white is a much better choice. It’s brighter, and plays up the print rather than tries to mute it.

With a Pucci dress, most people would be afraid to carry a boldly printed bag like the moira tote, but is a plain bag really worthy of Pucci?

Because it’s a black and white stripe, the moira tote coordinates seamlessly with any print, even a famously bold Pucci.
