Can you believe it hasn’t even been 100 years since women received the right to vote in the U.S. (98 years, to be exact)? Make the most of the day, and wear your team colors to the voting center, with a nice bi-partisan pant in a blue, red and purple “it-print of the season” plaid.

November 9-Go to an Art Museum Day 

November 9: Go to an Art Museum Day 

Like you needed an excuse, right? The 9th is a Friday, so kick off one of the final holiday hassle-free weekends left this year. No matter what style of art you prefer, there’s a way to channel that inspiration into your wardrobe. Here we used inspiration from the pastoral landscapes,  including earth tones, and a pop of blue sky; inspiration from the Bauhaus era with simple, geometric references to the art-deco-like art movement; and inspiration from Asian art, dialing in the influence from handbag to shift dress.

  November 13-World Kindness Day

November 13: World Kindness Day 

What better way to let the world know you believe in kindness, than to wear your heart on your sleeve…, shirt and scarf. Formerly an icon for love-lorn teenagers, the heart grew up this season and was splashed all over the runways from Gucci to Commes des Garçons as a silent revolution in cultural consciousness. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the empowering effect of seeing your badge of kindness in the mirror; it’s a gentle reminder: If you can’t be kind to yourself, how can you be kind to others?
