This Spring we are expecting to see you ladies a bit more dolled up than usual! Adding a bit of high-class attitude to your looks by including a dressy element whether it be lady-like gloves, fancy-pants suspenders or trading-up your “59Fifty” for an old-world fedora. Here we’ve put together some key elements to “Puttin’ On the Ritz” this season. This phrase, “Puttin’ On the Ritz”, dates back to the 20’s/30’s and means to ‘dress very fashionably’. So let’s break-out the tulle trimmed hats, add a pair of spats to your look or a bow-tie to your hair and strut your stuff girl! Here’s a sneak peak…see the whole story after the jump!
