Matches, the venerable UK-based, designer-rich retailer, recently asked me to share my tried-and-true style rules. (They also photographed me in my sister's New York City apartment in various cute shirts, above.) You can check out the cool feature here--and shop the incredible sale (30 to 50%) going on, too. Some amazing finds include these $350 Gucci suede sandals (you don't see that everyday!), this Peter Pilotto dress, and this Fendi clutch.
