Wear It With Flare

April 23, 2015

After years of living in our skinnies, flare legged jeans are back with a vengeance. We have seen this coming for quite awhile, but the 70’s frenzy that swept the spring ’15 runways have solidified the trend and elevated the flare jean to “must have” status.

The key to wearing this iteration of the trend is polish. This time, rises are a little higher, and they are paired back to cleaner, more refined casual items.

There is nothing else that will make your legs look longer and leaner than a well fitted flare leg jean with worn with a heel, short of leg extention surgery. ( Yes, that’s a thing, and no, we don’t condone it!)

Tuck a soft easy shirt into a higher waisted jean. The monochromatic look adds to the illusion of length.

Keep it simple, and keep it crisp. We love the extra long shirttail in this half tuck!

Add a classic pea coat to look and show your stripes. The mariner tee is the perfect accent to these dark blue flares.

Pump Up the Volume

October 10, 2013

Hold onto your skinny jeans because full fluid pants are making a comeback for Spring 2014.

High waisted trousers with lots of volume hit the runways this season, paired with the simplest of tops. No need to wait for spring to pump up the volume. Wear this look for fall with a soft blouse of fine gauge turtleneck, to get a jump on the trend.

Marni showed wide legged grey trousers with simple black sweater.
