Refresh your style

Sissy Perry, 61, of Louisburg has clothes to wear to church and formal events, "but when it comes to casual and comfort wear, I'm lost." She has gotten some bad reviews from family. We'll help you, Sissy.

Oversize sweat shirt and tapered jeans

The "message" sweat shirt with the low waistband bags over Sissy's figure and the jeans and square-toe shoes shorten her leg line.

shorts and tank

The knee-length bermuda shorts ($60) and metallic thong sandal ($130) flatter Sissy's legs. Along with the gathered, linen tank top ($60), they create a cool, comfortable outfit. The cotton fedora ($40), straw bag ($180), turquoise cuff ($50) and clear, chunky necklace ($30) ramp up the style.

sweater and trousers

The teal jewelneck cotton sweater ($60) complements Sissy's coloring and slim waist. The wide-leg pants ($60) and pointed-toe flats ($140) give good proportion to her figure. A silk and cotton trench coat ($298), leather bag ($200), goldtone bracelet set ($20) and patterned headband ($20) complete the look.
