Long Sweater

No one should quibble with us wanting to wear what’s basically a knit bathrobe out in public. Why should we be cold on our flight? Choose one in a neutral color so that it just sort of disappears when you wear it.

Cute Sweatpants

These get a bad rap, because with a good shoe and a pretty top, they’re a hipper version of super-comfy skinny trousers.

High-Waisted Jeans

They haven’t been called “mom jeans” for some time now, gentlemen. But even if they were, we’re pro-mom and pro-jeans that have a retro-cool edge. And that don’t reveal any muffin top when we sit down. Just tuck your shirt in to accentuate how small these make your waist look.

Life is not just about stilettos. We’re wearing these with everything from yoga pants to skirts to jeans and feeling good about ourself…and our feet.

Bodycon is not our idea of a good time. But a billowy long dress with room to move is, especially one that goes casual when we pair it with flats or is going-out apropos when we’re wearing heels.


Chunky Eyewear

We feel all sexy secretary in our Clark Kent shades, and we know exactly how to style our look by wearing them with smaller earrings and lighter eye makeup.

Anything Androgynous Chic

Ask yourself: Would everyone’s favorite Academy Award-winning fashion plate Tilda Swinton wear this outfit? If the answer is yes, it’s almost certain you’re not going to be boyfriend-approved. But we march on.
