I was so excited to see a flurry of wide leg pants hit the stores this Fall. I’ve always loved their flattering nature and was aching for them during these past years of “nothing but skinny jeans” (as mentioned in my How to Wear Wide Leg Pants post last spring.)
I got these TOPSHOP pants from Nordstrom in winter white, navy and black, and envision wearing them for years. I consider them good quality for the price. Each season, Theory has a great variety of long, lean designs, like these. I also love the sharp look of these checked wide legs from MANGO.
When I go out I often drape blazers and coats OVER my outfits and wear them like a cape. I also do this in the heart of winter, when my coat won’t fit over my layered blazer look. I got this long check double-breasted blazer (that feels like a sweatshirt!) from GAP at the start of fall. Although it’s just about sold out, it’s still available in long (I usually buy my blazers in LONG for more butt coverage). The same blazer is available in a slightly different plaid here. I also like this double-breasted one from ZARA. The black windowpane design of this Joie blazer is a classic alternative to the plaid.
I consider a basic black turtleneck a wardrobe ESSENTIAL, like this black ribbed one I’m wearing from J. Crew, or this wool-blend turtleneck sweater from Banana Republic. A lightweight cotton one is also a good alternative when layering, like this basic from Everlane.
Lastly, this bag! For decades, Gucci has featured bamboo in their handles and hardware… such a classic look! I love the bamboo-handled bag from Mark & Graham that can be monogrammed! This Lilly Pulitzer gold and bamboo tote could easily go from holiday party to beach! I also love this smaller woven one from Halsbrook. Locally, Silverwood has a great bamboo handled bag design currently available in two sizes.
I hope your holiday shopping has been a success… and that maybe you throw a little something for yourself in your cart this holiday season.
