"This dress is very straight but has pleating at the bottom, which adds movement," says King, who credits her seamstress mother ("I grew up sleeping next to the sewing machine") with encouraging her to develop her personal style.

Stylish Idea: T-strap styles are an easy way to add a '20s vibe to any outfit.
