Silhouettes such as the floor-length full skirt, the cashmere cardigan, the tailored button-down shirt, the cropped pant, and the shift dress have reemerged as everlasting signifiers of lady-hood.

These styles are simple, wearable, and effortlessly elegant. In other words, easy to fall in love with.

Head scarves with dark sunglasses, white gloves, and satchel purses are all classic accessories that complete the lady-like look.

Perhaps with the economy in an upswing, 2014 is 1947 all over again – the year French designer Christian Dior’s “New Look” took the European fashion world by storm and firmly closed the chapter on the austere styles of Word War II. Along with Cristobal Ballenciaga and Hubert de Givenchy, Dior brought hourglass figures and full, A-line skirts into vogue.

American designers followed Dior’s suit in the 50s, bringing the lady look across the Atlantic to a welcoming USA audience.
