The B. Jones Style Philosophy

You may have already noticed this, but here at B. Jones Style, our philosophy is to never consider yourself overdressed! Dressing up is one of the things that make being a woman so much fun, so why should we shy away from it?
I don’t know how this happened, but we have entered into a time when being dressed up is looked at as “trying too hard” or asks the question “why are you so dressed up?” – I say, “why aren’t you dressed up?”.
Up until thirty years ago, women would never consider not dressing up – running errands, meeting for lunch or even traveling meant wearing a dress, gloves, hat, perfectly coiffed hair and makeup. Now we think, “oh.. I am just going to the store” or “getting on a flight” so that means dressing down.
I am not saying that we should go back to a time when women were put in the box of “she is just there to look good”, but I am saying that we should embrace our femininity and freedom. We are strong women who should enhance how amazing and beautiful we are!
No, this doesn’t mean we all need to pull on a pair of gloves and wear a hat when we leave the house, but what about creating a great look that makes us feel good, powerful and ready to conquer the day.
Even if you are a simple jeans-and-tee kind of girl, throw on the chic with a few strands of pearls, a cardi and brightly colored flats. If you are ready to really step it up, take a cue from the women above and throw on a fabulous day dress, a pair of heels, and.. why not.. a statement hat!
