Georgianne, or George as her friends call her is the very essence of chic style in this vibrant tomato-red linen dress by Amanda Smith. The shirtwaist style is an easy fit for most women with it’s self belt. This particular style features patch pockets at the bust and slits at the side that make it feel a little flirty. Finding something like this at one of our stores is a dream come true for a gal on the taller side that has a hard time finding dresses. The proportions here work well for this former model and her almost six-foot frame! Note how well the shoulder line accents her silhouette. That is the key to a shirtwaist dress! We dressed it up with just a few simple accessories that add to the look without distracting from the vibrant color. A gold tone necklace and earrings, along with Georgianne’s own leather pumps with gold detail make this daytime appropriate as well as super classy! My favorite pieces are the sunglasses and straw-and-black patent leather clutch by Echo. This outfit is movie star glamour that looks like a million dollars, but in reality was put together on a shoestring budget! Keep your eyes peeled for classic dresses in wonderful fabric like linen, such as this dress, the next time you’re out shopping at one of our stores!

Robert is a cool teenage guy. He knows what looks good and cares about putting together a look that he’s comfortable with. With so much going for him already, we built his look here starting with an awesome button down cotton shirt with a Phoenix appliqué on the front, done in a khaki color from the Buffalo by David Button brand. Next, we added a pair of classic Levi’s jeans in a lighter wash than what we’ve been seeing in fashion as of late to keep the outfit fresh. The key to the cool factor here are the accessories that Robert himself brought to the table for the photo shoot. The nerd chic glasses, the white belt, and of course the very cool Van’s canvas deck shoes in a complementary shade of tan. This is the epitome of effortless style! Remember, great pieces like the unique shirt and accessories mixed with classic items like the jeans, are what create memorable fashion.
