If you get your sartorial savvy from your mom, chances are she's got a closetful of vintage goodies you're free to raid. An example: the monogrammed handbag she keeps in one corner is the best kind of relicthey've been yoyoing in and out of fashion these last few years, but with 2017's logo trend still going strong, you might want to dust yours off and take it out for a spin around town.

A disclaimer, though: styled wrong, that letter-splashed purse will tend to look dated. Holding your hand through your first foray into logomania is Preview Best Dressed lister Jess Connelly, who has making pretty much anything 101% cooler down to an art form. Begin!

Jess' miniature Louis Vuitton Alma is her current Parisian travel companion. Keep your silhouettes oversized for a slouchy, devil-may-care-what-I-wear vibe that cancels out a tiny tote's primness.

From here on out, note that she's got a no-fail outfit equation: oversized jacket, second-skin camisole and high-waisted trousers (ice cream cone optional but encouraged).

See what we mean? Add on a pair of sunnies and pristine white kicks that instantly up your street cred.

We're not complaining, though. Jess repeats her OOTD solutions for a good reason: they work, and they work hard.
