"More is more and less is a bore." — Iris Apfel
Iris Apfel, a fashion force not far off 100, defies all conventional wisdom about style. With feathers, loud prints, lashings of jewelry, and a penchant for oversize glasses, her clothes celebrate fashion as something fun.
A streamlined working wardrobe needn't mean weekend clothes that follow suit. Rather, I'd like to use my off-duty time to channel an Iris-inspired jubilance when it comes to fashion. That means sequins, costume jewels, head-to-toe prints, feather boas, and anything else that takes my fancy. A bejeweled turban? Iris says yes. The only thing worse than making a fashion faux pas is being too scared to try in the first place.
