Being Stylish and Moving to the Beat of Your Own Drum

Being Stylish and Moving to the Beat of Your Own Drum

One of my gentlemen readers pointed out that the people he thought were the most stylish and most admired generally moved to their own beat.  I agree....kinda!  I believe moving to your 'own beat' is right as long as it's in time with the music.

Anyway, I digress.... I believe what gives us a little individualism is taking an ordinary piece and adding our personality and signature to it.  For example, I want the Manoush sweater (available at pictured.  Manoush sweaterFor me, the long cuff sleeves, round patch pockets, and leather buttons make this a winner.  Some would look at this $145 sweater and say it's ugly and, on the right person, I'd agree!  But pair it with a sleeveless ruffle-front tee (we still need to get some use out of our summer stuff) and some skinny cream pants and cognac peep-toe heels -- you're in business for an evening out with the ladies!  Or pair it with a scoop-neck print tee and some trouser jeans along with your Campers sneakers and Saturday errands become a mini-catwalk!

So what would you pair it with to stamp your style signature?!.
