Demure dressers

by Amanda Bedgood

Jackie-O inspired pieces

Some style never dies. Just look at a pic of Jackie-O. Those beloved sunglasses and chic shifts. The easy feminine colors and polished 'do. The lady knew what she was doing then and it still works now. We got Jackie on the mind after spotting a perfectly preppy little dress over at Clothing Loft. In a lovely white with a broach at the neckline, this piece is fabulous for daytime and just right for a lovely little shower with a simple heel and basic jewelry.

If you're doing the classic gal thing, you can't go wrong with a nude heel. These sexy Steve Madden sandals are great for summer in lieu of a pump. With a skinny little heel they are the edgier version of demure. We advise they be worn with a longer hemline and a silhouette that's not too body con.

A demure dame wouldn't be complete without a simple pair of shades. And nobody does classic like Tiffany & Co. This pair from LA Specs is the perfect example of drama-free sunnies you can wear from the beach to the boardwalk.
