Why Did You Wear That: You Com-Pleat Me

By |November 23rd, 2010|Celebrity Style, Personal Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

I can’t lie, the lovely Ms. Fox inspired this post. I have had a pair of slouchy pleated pants hanging in my closet for a few months now and every time I put them on, I felt a bit more Ellen Degeneres than Megan Fox. After seeing how hot a pair of simple slacks could look, I was inspired to try again.  A slouchy pleated pant is a great alternative to jeans, leggings, and your regular dress/work slacks. Here are some great pleated options for you to try out as well:

Why Did You Wear That: Everything’s Coming Up Roses

On a gorgeous NY day like today (82 degrees and about 536% humidity), I feel like we need a little brightening up of our wardrobes. One of the fastest ways to bring a little sunshine into your life is by dressing yourself in something floral. Flowers always make me think of warm weather, butterflies, and rainbows (okay, maybe not that much… but you get where I’m headed).  In a world full of black and grey, why not be you very own ray of sunshine?  Be sure to anchor your pretty pattern with solids. No need to overwhelm. Don’t want any weeds in your glorious garden.
