I have found that one of the best ways to stay ahead of the trends is to take vintage pieces and wear them in a new way. Alex expertly does this in a sweater coat that was once her grandmother’s. Darlingly, it was the first gift her grandfather ever gave her grandmother. She mixes the heirloom in with cuffed black skinnies and a crisp white shirt that takes on a fresh beatnik style. But it is her Karen Walker cat-eyes and laceless oxfords that really slay the look.
