Make it yours: Heralded by Miuccia Prada some 20 years ago, geek/granny chic is a great way to add a touch of the personal to any look. Find pieces that have an antique feel, say a brocade topper or a top handle bag and pile away.

Skirt Suits-

Make it yours: Off-kilter suiting punctuated with eclectic accessories made for a refreshing return to the much talked about contemporary woman’s suit. Rejoice as these boxier, graphic options won’t have you mistaken for a politician or a granny. Be on the lookout for suits that boast gorgeous texture, prints & fabrications with extras like slits, contrasting hues and curved seams.
