No, I’m not saying you should aspire to be Rachel Zoe, but when one of the leading stylists in the country tells you to grab a pair of jeans (and that it’s part of her everyday wardrobe!), you better listen.
This is one of her apparel posts (she wrote a darling one about the Current/Elliott Biker Jacket, too!):
I always say one person’s skinny jean is another person’s wide-leg. That is, I know skinny jeans are the go-to for many women, but I want to remind you that wide-leg silhouettes are just as relevant to your wardrobe. I personally gravitate toward said look…they are the foundation in my daily uniform.* There are currently so many flattering styles on the market, but I constantly find myself in 7 For All Mankind’s Ginger Jeans. They are amongst the chosen ones for me
Your visual reference for the day…Valerie Bertinelli in One Day At a Time. Take a cue from her classic seventies look by stepping into these dark denim trousers and pairing them with a pretty, tucked-in blouse. With this kind of style, it is important to show off the high-waist to elongate your legs. Ideally, you can invest in two pairs: one to wear with heels and another hemmed for flats—I love when they skim the ground and fray in an oh-so-bohemian way. xoRZ
*Daily Uniform = wide leg denim jeans, long tee, fitted jacket and tranny shoes
Yeah, this post is about a week old, but that doesn’t change its relevancy (of course not, it’s a week.). I try to avoid wearing skinny jeans to work (they just don’t carry a clean enough look, and they’re a bit too body con)… not to say I don’t break my rules, but I prefer the flattering look of a wide leg.
So, while I don’t have a camera available (I’ve attempted to make my phone work, but it kind of failed miserably…), I am wearing a great pair of Paige Premium Denim Abbot Kinney jeans (they were initially released as a Japan exclusive, but you can find a pair or two floating around Overstock).
