Lucky’s fashion director Anne Keane has been at the magazine since its inception in 2000 and loves its approachable way of looking at style. “I like helping people get dressed and sharing my shopping finds,” she says. “Lucky is a community of people who love fashion and want to talk about it.”
Anne describes her personal style as a combination of preppy and tomboy with unexpected accents. “I always go for tribal or tropical accessories,” she admits.
But as a mom of three kids under the age of eight, she understands that comfort and versatility are key; “It’s OK to stick with pieces and shapes that you know look good on you. I have about ten versions of my favorite shirt, the blue oxford, in my closet. Some are over a decade old!”
LUCKY PICKS YOU CAN WEAR RIGHT NOW — AND INTO FALL
Denim is actually the ultimate transitional fabric because it’s season-less. You can dress up this denim shirt with a bright mini, or wear it to the office with a pleated skirt and modern shoe. And when the weather gets colder, you can layer it over a patterned t-shirt or under your favorite fall sweater.
THE SPOT-ON ACCESSORY + THE MODERN DENIM SKIRT
Polka dots are so fun because you can wear the pattern on its own or you can mix it up with other polka dots of different sizes and colors. I love styling a lightweight scarf as a necklace — tied so that it hangs long. It’s a standout accent to any outfit (and essential for unpredictable weather!)
A denim pencil skirt is the perfect starting point for a casual yet chic outfit. Balance the proportions by pairing the fitted skirt with a boxy or oversized sweater. I like to finish it off with ballet slippers for a sleek and modern look.
Leopard has been popular for a few seasons already, and it’s not going anywhere. You can combine it with every pattern and color — it’s the new neutral! And leopard loafers are an easy way to try the trend. Wear them with a cropped pant in a lightweight fabric like cotton or something thicker like wool as the temperature drops.
A black blazer is the ultimate basic and a fresh alternative to a cardigan. Opt for a longer menswear style — it’s effortless and universally flattering. Pair it with jeans and a white t-shirt for a polished yet classic look.
A sweatshirt isn’t just for lounging anymore. It’s the new everyday staple, especially with a touch of crystal embellishment. I like to wear it with a dressier skirt or my favorite jeans for a girly-tomboy look. Choose one with cropped arms for an even cooler 1960’s shape.
An easy way to modernize classic silhouettes is to pick pieces with color-blocking — swatches of vibrant solid colors. It’s a trend you can dress up or down, all year round. Pick a color-block sweater in a flattering trapeze shape — with a flared body but slim-fitting sleeves — along with simple trousers for an elegant but of-the-moment look.
