SMOCKING RULES: The smocked item has staying power. It always looks vintage and fresh at the same time, maybe because it never hits the top of the "here-and-gone" trend charts (good thing, too). And it never truly goes away. Add it to a modern-nice asymmetrical dress, as NoHo-based Kali Oseano has done, and it is truly a past-future type of piece. A WIDE RANGE OF COLORS, TOO: This red is perfect. The price is $125 on Etsy.
