wide leg jeans
I just gave away my pair (that I had since high school!) so I'm in the market for new ones. I think these look so striking with heels and wedges, and they give a fun 70s vibe to any outfit, but can also offer a different sort of casual jeans look when skinnies are the go-to these days.
Nothing defines a feminine shape quite like a big, boxy, stolen from the opposite sex blazer, preferably in your grandpa's favorite tweed, check or houndstooth. I love this look with layers, with a more traditional outfit, shorts, or if it's long enough, with nothing underneath!
Add this to my list of camo must haves, too. These act as a neutral, but make any outfit more interesting. Great with heels or boots or booties...or sandals, I want to wear these all fall and winter. And spring.
These are everywhere nowadays, and for good reason. Everyone's body type is different, though, so finding one that hangs just right is important. These are necessary for casual, layered, skirted, shorted, everything-ed looks for all seasons. I'll take one in white, gray and black, please.
white wide leg trousers
Moda Operandi is doing their "the one that got away" series right now, and I could write a book with all the stories I have like that. Including beautiful white trousers from Joe Fresh I waited too long to get last year. They're maybe slightly more tailored than the ones seen here, but nothing looks more glamorous than a white or cream pant, especially in the winter.
I've become a total camo convert, and this kind of coat goes well over anything. It's the perfect layering piece and adds just the right amount of pattern without distracting from the rest of the outfit. Many of these coats strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.
Not unlike their camo counterparts, these can go with so much, and look so rich for the season. When blue and black are boring but you want to keep it dark, this is the perfect alternative. Great with blacks, browns and pretty much all neutrals, these would be a welcome addition to my jeans drawer. As would an eggplant-colored pair.
Pajama sets for day are acceptable now, but I don't know how I would feel in a silky, patterned, matching top and bottom. That's why I'll stick with the shirt (in either solid or patterned) to wear with trousers, cutoffs, under blazers and jean jackets and get to stay comfy all day.
