Legs for Days…and Nights

October 18, 2011 § 1 Comment

Not only are high-waist, wide-leg trousers universally flattering and elongating, they also maintain relevance year-round, ranging from easy breezy lightweight jeans to heavier, more structured pants.

It’s all in how you style it.  See below.

    In the last photos your wide-legs are worn with higher heels making the pants seem quite short. Is this an acceptable look today in order to show off the shoes/boots? How long should wide-legs be ideally? I really like the first two looks! The vest is fantastic and the green shirt yummy. Is it alright to continue wearing white in the fall? Just wondering. The casual man-shirt look is terrific as well. The belt really makes it. And I like the ruffle shirt with the last look. Thanks for the ideas.
