Fountain of 30

August 9, 2007 • Fashion

What is this new look for Fall ’07 you ask? Think Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable & Lana Turner. Think red lips, wide-leg menswear pants, drapey blouses, big yet soft shoulders, your hair pulled back in a lose twist with your grandmother’s vintage hairpin and t-strap heels. The waist-line of your pants is higher, your satchel has a bit of gloss and your belt collection now includes wide and skinny varieties that you wear pretty much over everything (cardigans, coats, jackets, etc.). Get the cinematic picture? If not, here is some help.
