What the Superbowl Taught Me About Fashion

February 4, 2013

While many of you were cheering on your football teams, I was rooting for some hot fashion from the performers.

1. Color Stands Out

I’m always shocked at how many people only wear neutrals. Color is a great way to show your personality and inject some life into a wardrobe.  Just look at Alicia Keys.  Her deep red, racerback gown was simply stunning.  After watching a boring Jennifer Hudson in a skin-tight black top and 2 inches too long white skirt, it was great to see some color on stage.

Alicia Keys won the fashion look of the night.

2. Knee Highs & Short Skirts vs Capris

I personally love the skirt and knee-high look.  And while many golf clubs have a collar rule, I’m pretty sure they don’t have a sock rule.  I’m all for sporting a short skirt and some high socks next time on the course.  Take inspiration from Beyonce’s look, but then adapt for golf.

3. Classics Are Always in Style

We love classic styles too.  That is why we are bringing back our popular houndstooth this Spring with an updated flair.  Stay tuned to see what we have in store.
