Demure ladies

Ladylike pieces perfectly polished

There's a reason Audrey Hepburn and Jackie-O are names that appear again and again when women the world over are asked to name style icons. The ladylike vibe is one that never goes out of style and works at every age. And it's arrived again with a wink to modern aesthetic. Whether it's an all out Blair Waldorf ensemble or simply a detail perfectly placed, fall is feeling quite demure.

The ladies at Herringstone known more often for funky fringe have a perfect little pleated skirt and Peter Pan collared top that begs for a headband and heeled Mary Janes. Over at kiki, a collection of amazing Kate Spade bags are just the way the clever gal does ladylike. From eye popping colors to polished little details, Kate Spade does it with a certain dose of humor that's anything but boring. Speaking of details that bring panache, a killer pointed Ivanka Trump shoe is that rare combination of tough (thanks to a few properly placed studs) and Jackie worthy class.
