Harem Pant (part II)

Harem pants are one of my absolute favorites!  They are fashion forward (with a hint of the past), bold and so comfortable.  Anytime stylish and comfortable are in the same sentence I am on board.  Harem pants are definitely a wardrobe staple for me.  They are just simply wonderful and can be worn anywhere and to anything.

The Printed Pant (II)

As I’ve said before, I love a printed pant for spring!  Well really, I love it for any season!  It is a statement piece that adds a pop of pizzazz to any ensemble!  If it isn’t already, a bold print should be a staple in your closet!  Rocking an expected print shows you have confidence and of course style.  In my book, it is the new LBD, but it is better, because rocking a bold print allows you stand out from the crowd.  A bold print is also perfect for any occasion and let’s be real, nothing is better than a well tailored pant!

The Printed Pant

The printed pant is back in a big way, bringing lightness, depth, and excitement to spring wear.  I love the printed pant because it allows you to experiment with texture, color, and of course pattern.  I am obsessed with bold prints and really can’t get enough (peruse these old posts to see the full extent of my love).  The printed pant is so special, because it is unexpected, making the piece even more eye catching.  You can also take the look in so many directions: you can pair your bold print with a more subtle counterpart or mix and match prints for a truly dazzling ensemble.  Printed pants can seem intimidating, but don’t be scared, instead play with proportion, tightness, lengths, and size of patterns.  Find what fits you and your style best and embrace this bold trend.

I love me some skinny pants and these are the perfect length for heels.  I also cuff them when wearing the pants with flats or booties.

I chose to pair a semi subdued top with these bold pants, to ensure that the pants were the main focus.  I do LOVE the leather detailing of the peplum top though.

These pics were taken in the picturesque Charlottesville, VA at my sister’s house.  I’m sure there will be more pictures taken in cville on a much sunnier and less dreary day.

Peplum forever

Peplum, my latest obsession is so wonderful, because it creates the most flattering silhouette and literally works with all body types!  Another reason I love peplum is because it is so versatile.  Not only can it be dressed up or down, but you can have a peplum top, dress, skirt or pants!  There are so many ways for you to integrate this trend into your wardrobe the list is endless and fabulous!

Winter Printed Pant

The printed pant is a trend that has transitioned from spring to fall, but with this transition comes an evolution of the printed pant.  Fall and winter normally boast more somber colors than warmer months and when it comes to the bold print this is no exception.  Laura (a buyer for macy’s.com and the star contributor from my last post) rocked a demur and subtle printed pant demonstrating the importance of updating trends in order to keep them relevant.  This is not to say that color should be avoided as it starts to get chilly–just that you must be mindful.  Styling is also crucial to the success of the printed pant, making sure to remember the print is the star of the look.

Also, on a completely unrelated note, history was made today!  President Obama was re-elected as our President and same-sex marriage was approved in Maryland and Maine! I am so proud of my country!

Loving this pant and the conservative black turtleneck. This pant could also be part of a bolder pairing, either way it’s perfect.  The embellishments are also to die for!

Simple and subtle take on the printed pant. Her style exudes confidence yet appears effortless.

As seen in a previous post, camo is huge this season and is different take on the printed pant. I am also always in search of the perfect winter sweater and this oxblood turtleneck looks like cozy perfection!

Winter Printed Pant

This post is dedicated to the winter printed pant.  Laura, who has been one of my best friends for 13 years is also a buyer for Macy’s.com and was kind enough to contribute to GofG.  I also conducted a brief interview with Laura who is immersed in fashion, style, fabrics and glamour all day everyday.  Please enjoy the printed pant, as interpreted, modeled and styled by Laura, as well as an interview with someone on the forefront of fashion.

Pants: Rag & Bone (found here), Shirt: Splendid (old, similar found here), Jacket: Vintage, Bag: Marc Jacobs (old, similar found here), Shoes: Prada (old, similar found here)

I am completely obsessed with these pants and love the simple styling – very classic yet edgy

These pants are super fab and also a fun play on the tuxedo pant

1. Tell me about the trend you are representing.

I am representing a take on the “printed” bottom trend.  Going into fall it can be difficult to wear all over printed bottoms, the side detailing on the pants is a great way to transform the printed bottom and make it more fall appropriate

2. Where would you wear this look?

This look is a great transition piece from day to night.  I can wear it in the office with an item jacket and then take the look out at night with a tank top.

3. What are your favorite trends this fall?

I have two favorite trends this fall – boots and item jackets, I can’t get enough of either!

4. What do you look for when buying a product for Macys.com?

Specialness and saleability.  I want product that is unique yet saleable to a wide variety of customers at a great price.

5. What is your go to article of clothing at the moment?

My Plomo fringe boots and the infamous green Zara jacket with leather sleeves.

6. What can’t you leave your house without?

I can’t leave the house without my iphone – I am spotify obsessed and I can’t be far from my music, it’s essential in NYC since you walk most places.

7. Who are your favorite designers?

I am obsessed with Isabelle Marant though I usually can’t afford her clothing.  I am also obsessed with David Neville and Marcus Wainright of Rag and Bone – I would say 90% of the clothing I have purchased this fall has been theirs.

8. What was your latest purchase?

I most recently bought a ring from Fragments in Soho.  It was way over my budget but I just had to have it.  My test for if I really have to have something is if I sleep on it and still want it the next day.

9. What is on your wish list this season?

I am dying for a Celine bag but I doubt that will ever happen.  I also really want a pair of Sergio Rossi pointed toe pumps which may have to get purchased soon 🙂
