The ‘checked’ or ‘window pane’ print is definitely on trend right now!
This checked dress is modern, chic and ladylike.
I love to dress like a real lady!
(Kind of like the late, great Grace Kelly.)
This is also another example of layering UNDER dresses in an effort to cover arms and show less skin.
See how this dress is completely open on the side?? I wouldn’t wear that to a meeting or to an office.
Throw a blouse underneath, and you are good to go!!
Also, the leather jacket (above) gives the ladylike look a bit of edge.
Edge transforms you from ‘lady’… into ‘cool’ lady!
