Clothes & Conversation: Women's Fashion Tips
Drawstring Midi Shirtdress
Sold by: Anthropologie

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? This shirtdress from Anthropologie has a tailored style that works for any holiday outing, brunch, or a great dinner. The silky fabric gives it a polished feel without being fussy. And we love how the colors are pure Spring, but with a long sleeves and a longer length that is appropriate for the earlier days of the season.
Wear it with: Nude closed toe pumps are the perfect transitional shoe, and Stuart Weitzman wearable 90mm heel (that’s about 3’1/2”) come in a color to match varying skin tones from fair to neutral to medium. We also love adding a coordinating belt to accentuate your waist. Click through the ‘shop it’ button and check out the carbon grey color to see how it looks with a belt.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern, not too trim in sizes 00-16, with a drawstring waist that can be tied as tight – or loose – as you like. The midi-length hits mid-calf, and looks great a little shorter and a little longer, so most ladies won’t need to worry about alterations.
Alternatives: This dress comes in solid dark grey and olive through the ‘shop it’ button, and Banana Republic has their own version with a flared skirt (great for curvy hips) and beautifully drapey fabric in similar solid colors.

The Spring Social Calendar: What Will You Be Wearing?

Getting ready for Easter, Passover, a springtime wedding, or a charity event, that calendar of events might be starting to fill up. Even if you’re just planning on attending a backyard party on one of those first nights it’s actually warm enough to do so, these are great opportunities to break out some new Spring clothes.

SPRING HOLIDAYS: Remember being a kid how fun (or agonizing) it was to put on your new clothes for Easter or Passover? Well, we think that feeling is just as important as an adult. Smart looks are the name of the game here, and there are plenty of tailored options that we love. Wide leg trousers with silky blouses, floral dresses, and soft blazers are all fitting, and will transition to a lovely brunch or dinner with ease.

POSH EVENTS: From weddings to charity events, cocktail dresses and dressy separates will ensure you fit right in. If it’s truly formal or “black tie optional” you can opt for a simple and sophisticated long dress in black or a pop of color, though a dressier cocktail dress or suit is still perfectly appropriate. While black is always appropriate, Spring is the ideal time to add some color to your dressed up look. Not only does it give your look an instant update – and does wonders to add a pretty glow to any skin tone – warmer weather means you don’t have to wear hose so open and strappy shoes are the name of the game.

LAID-BACK PARTIES: Oh, isn’t it a joyous time that first night when you can actually sit outside with a drink? Sure, you may still be wearing a light sweater, but there’s nothing like that fresh air after you’ve been inside all Winter. While it’s not quite time to show off your sundresses, lighter shades of denim and pops of color from soft pinks and blues to bolder oranges and greens will make you feel great. The flowy, boho blouses and cropped pant shapes of the season create just the right, easy vibe. And luckily, thicker block heels and wedges are all the rage, making for easy walking on grass or gravel. SEE THE 2 CASUAL OUTFITS WE’VE PUT TOGETHER IN THIS WEEK’S FASHION FINDS.>>
