Happy New Year! Pantone dubbed Living Coral 2019’s color, and I have been into pastels lately (especially lavender), so I combined the two for this fresh look.
I paired a chenille sweater with the amazing Givenchy flares I scored while thrifting in California. Wasteland’s three SoCal locations are always full of gems, but these pants are hands-down my best find. While I’m not sure what season they are from, Farfetch had them listed for over $2,000 at the time I purchased them from Wasteland (in Studio City) for under $200. What a steal!
The mix of thick and cozy textures keeps me warm during the cold Northeast winter, while the color palette screams spring. And this combination of cold-weather fabrics and mild-weather hues makes for the perfect winter-to-spring transition. Overall, the entire look has a really fresh feel that I love wearing this time of year.
When temperatures remain low for weeks on end, getting in a style rut is all too easy. So, I try my best to stay polished. Pulling on a pair of tailored trousers like these is one of the quickest tricks I use to instantly boost my style. Because I don’t love looking super structured, I almost always balance tailored bottoms with slouchy tops. During the spring and summertime I love wearing vintage t-shirts with menswear-inspired pants, but when weather is cold I definitely gravitate toward knit sweaters.
Flared pants like these really help elongate my petite frame. To accentuate the illusion, I chose to wear my go-to black booties that have a chunky block heel. But in the near future, I will undoubtedly be dressing my Givenchy flares down with Doc Martens or even Fila Disruptor II’s.
