Things To Steal From Your Mom's Closet

Silk Scarf

We’ve extolled the virtues of a neckerchief before, but we particularly love the competing prints in Medine’s silk scarf and plaid shirt combination.

Logo Print Bag

If the S/S 14 runways are any indication, logo mania will be everywhere this season (Alexander Wang, DKNY). Wear a logo print bag from any designer—the more obscure the better—with a blazer for work or boyfriend jeans and a blouse. It’s the new print

Strand of Pearls

Sure you can wrap them around your wrist or wear them over a concert tee, but why not try this unique styling trick seen at New York Fashion Week?

Oversized Coat

Coats from the ‘80s are synonymous with shoulder pads. Embrace the bold silhouette by scrunching the arms and wearing with monochromatic, modern accessories and sleek hair

Delicate Watch

The menswear watch trend has reigned supreme for so long we can’t even remember wearing something ladylike on our wrists. Try something new by teaming a feminine watch with skinny bangles

Cocktail Ring

Statement jewelry has been around for a long time, and the pieces from the ‘70s and ‘80s are particularly glamorous. Dilute the impact by mixing with dainty pieces in similar metals to make them daytime appropriate.


Your mom most likely paired these with her pantsuits, but we prefer mixing them into a casual weekend look as an alternative to sneakers or ballet flats
