Pretty Woman style gets a funky update from creative masterminds like Stacy Benet, the chic folks at Armani and Mr. Marc Jacobs.0
For the first time in almost 70 years, this year Governor’s Island hosted a polo match. (Remember, Prince Harry fell off his horse?) And this year’s horse sport attire transcended polka dot Pretty Woman sporting edgier styles and a much shorter hemline. Enter New York fashion icon Chole Sevigny and you get a little taste of what we are talking about. A fresh look on the classic style pairs a suit-like ensemble with a classic white shirt and toque topper. Balance appears key in this look. If you opt for the suit option, a smaller hat, longer torso and lots of legs provides provides checks and balances making sure one section does not overwhelm the other.
Aiming to step out a little more, consult Alice & Olive mastermind Stacy Benet whose pleated summer creations include dresses in multicolor pastel tie dye or Mr. Marc Jacobs who defied waspy tradition by making his floral prints more cartoon and abstract. Accessorize with a Eugenia Kim straw hat or boho headband rather than the traditionally featherful floppy hat. And finalize with footwear. Mui Mui has an awesome pair of patent penny loafers just screaming your name. Or if you can’t feel like a lady in flats, try lace up pumps or rock star wedges.
With versions at Top Shop, on sale at Bergdorf, to taste via Gilt and sample this week at xxx, there are no shortage of ways to make your own style a bit polo posh.
