Pretty, Smart or Crisp?

The Navy gave women three options for their personal “look” after getting out of the military: pretty, smart or crisp:

If the answer is:

  • “Pretty”–then choose a feminine hat, soft dresses,
  • “Smart”–the a few very smooth clothes for you,
  • “Crisp”–then stick to tailored clothes.
