Charmaine is the perfect illustration of my adage that all you need is “one great dress”. In this case, she’s wearing a classic shirtwaist dress in a small leopard print that buttons down the front. This Ralph Lauren designer dress was just $6.99 at my local Goodwill store. Don’t shy away from leopard prints! Just make sure the print looks rich in color and not cheap. A structured piece in leopard, such as a jacket or jeans, always works to create a stylish look. We simply added a wide belt in a soft brown, gold earrings, and a necklace from her own wardrobe. Beige Bandolino pumps were found by our model at Goodwill for $6.99—they coordinate but don’t dominate the leopard print. The brown leather designer purse was $14.99. Fashionable and professional is what I’d call this look!

Helena is wearing a great print here, but this time in her floral pattern skinny jeans. This particular pair is by designer Madewell and were just $4.99 at Goodwill. I thought it would be fun to play with a menswear look, so we used a light blue button-down dress shirt, a black necktie, and Chuck Taylor shoes from her own wardrobe to emulate a masculine style. To top it all off, we added a Mossimo blazer with faux leather insets ($5.99) and some attitude glasses in a burnt gold ($2.99). She looks like a rockstar doesn’t she? Ladies, take a look through the menswear department at Goodwill the next time you’re there. You may want to borrow something from the boys to elevate your own style!
