Of course, Betsey is known for her outrageous sensibility, but in actuality her dress silhouettes are quite classic. She creates her signature edge by using unexpected fabrics and details, which keeps the look fresh, modern, and fun. Fashion that doesn’t take itself too seriously always makes me smile…
For example, I’d love to see this great Betsey Johnson dress
paired with a boyfriend blazer.
And this one
with a timeless, girly cardigan and strappy heels.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been so into dresses that I now have enough to outfit a girls’ finishing school- which means I’ll be holding back today. But I’m crossing my fingers that some of her fabulous legwear will be part of the boutique, and if so, I’ll snatch it up. Sassy, sheer tights are just the thing during early fall, before the temperatures catch up with the styles. With any luck, you’ll see me sporting some Betsey legs in October!
