Style Tricks From A True Fashion Icon

We're all die-hard fashion fiends here at Refinery29, but even we sometimes can't keep up with the latest and greatest that walk down the runway — or the grocery aisle. While the trends of our times are fast and furious, there are some age-old mainstays that never go out of, well, style. Think: the floral prints of the '70s or scarf tricks of the '60s that Joan Harris would eye. And, who better to consult than 83-year-old Joyce Carpati, one of our Advanced Style muses, who still has her favorite blouse from the Nixon era?

Watch above as she drops some sartorial knowledge on a couple of twentysomethings in an East Village laundromat — like whether crop tops are really here to stay and how to keep your true vintage wares (like said blouse) in tip-top shape with method. You'll find that wicked-good style is ageless, and that you never know what kismet encounter is on the horizon.
