If there’s anything I’ve learned from trolling Pinterest, flipping through the J. Crew catalogs that stuff my mailbox every week and ogling stylish women on the streets of New York City, it’s that I apparently have no idea how to dress myself. I mean, I learned how to dress myself as a kid – step right leg into pants, step left leg into pants, pull up, button, etc. – but apparently, outside of the basics, I’m doing it all wrong.
