‘Smoking Out’ Fashion Trends

… “With stout resolve,” reports a fashion book, “Kate almost single-handedly broke down the dress code for women,” by insisting on wearing men’s trousers on set and off, everywhere and all the time.

What would Katherine Hepburn have to say about my desire to join her non-conforming role in bending fashion? Kate’s voice would ring out smartly demanding I step into these male-tailored outfits with no trepidation at all!! I advance straight into strong Yang mode!

 The color purple, paired with red, borders on becoming a fashion negative. Yet, worn with neutrals, the look is classic.

Smoking out trends; we catch the look!

  • Study British, French, and Italian Magazines.

  • Hunt through dormant wardrobe items and try-out new combinations.

  • Men’s trousers can easily be “nipped in” at the back of the waist to fit women.

  • I invite all women to convert and experience such liberation.

  • Borrow ideas from store displays.

  • Light tortoiseshell eyeglasses will frame your summer whites and linens.

  • Most importantly: keep a steady eye on the FABRICS featured in new collections.

  • Flaunt your yang and never hesitate to take a risk: this will allow you to initiate new trends.

His hard &

with his “kitten”

he begins to

settle into an

learned response.

The line is the

rehearsed,

mandatory prelude

to a loving interlude

interested.
