Question: What’s a good work-to-weekend boot?
Answer: Invest in a one-inch heeled leather to-the-knee riding boot with a side zip that goes from ankle to top. It’s super preppy, functional and will allow you to run around in all types of weather. Chic with little dresses and skirts, plus will leave you room to tuck your wide-leg trousers if you’re caught in a rain storm. The boot is perfect on the weekend with leggings, skinny jeans and swingy sack dresses. Check out Aldo’s version at $180.


Question: I’m seeing a lot of tunics in stores. What’s the best way to wear them?
Answer: The newest cut is slimmer and mimics a sheath dress. Pair it with a fine knit underpinning, such as a long sleeve t-shirt, and wear belted over a slim wool pant or add a pair of ribbed tights and little bootie or a  really strong heel such as a platform ankle strap in patent. 


Question: What kind of coat works with short party frocks?
Answer: Choose a short swingy style in faux fur- color is hot right now. Short belted coats are sexy with evening frocks, as are little capelets. Fur stoles or capelets found at local vintage and thrift shops are perfect for more glam events and work even better on the weekend with jeans and tees.
