My approach towards fashion has evolved as I have gotten older. It’s no longer about abundance but rather about building a smarter, smaller wardrobe that works harder.  Each piece I curate should be able to sit within the intersection of a venn diagram and be used for multiple dress codes.

I purchased this Christopher Esber cocktail dress for a ridiculously cheap price at a recent warehouse sale (when it’s more than 80% off, you don’t think, you just handover the credit card lol). Rather than waiting for a “special occasion”,  I’ve dressed it down so it’s appropriate for a smart casual setting by layering it over cropped jeans.  Flat slides and a day bag also instantly work to tone down the dressy vibe.

What is your approach to fashion? Do you try to purchase pieces that work double duty?

Insider Crop Step Fray Jeans by Mother, Chosen by Tuchuzy camisole, Asos Belt, Dylan Kain Bag, Vialis shoes from Shoe I Am

Skinny, boyfriend , distressed- these jeans have been solid staples for a number of seasons. However if you’re looking for a new pair of jeans, it’s time to bypass these styles and upgrade your denim game.

Refresh your wardrobe with a new shape- think wide legs, cropped flares or full length flares in a modern fit, or focus on a raw hem.

The raw, fringed hem has been haunting me for months and I finally found the perfect incarnation with the Insider Crop Step Fray by Mother Denim.  There are so many subtle details that I love, the asymmetric raw hem that will only look better with wear and tear, the cropped length, slight kicked flare, high waist, and classic dark blue wash.  In terms of fit, these jeans fit true to size and are super comfortable thanks to the inclusion of elastane in the fabric.

So if you’ve been living in skinny jeans for the past few years, go beyond your style comfort zone and look at investing in a new denim style.
