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 🙂

Instaglam

Welcome to the inaugural edition of GofG’s street style! With my (hopefully) weekly edition of instaglam, I will feature a fabulously clad pedestrian found strutting down the streets of DC.  This week, I stalked Catherine, whose style was absolutely impeccable and caught my eye on my evening commute on the green line.  Catherine was kind enough to let me take a picture of her and she even complimented DC’s style, which says a lot considering she is from NY.  Anyway, enjoy the very first instaglam post and tune in for more fab street style pics.

You can also see my street style pics on my instagram (Garden of Glam), as well as other fun pics of me, my friends and my life.

Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Blouse: H&M, Shorts: H&M, Shoes: Target, Bag: Coach

Layered perfection

It’s hard to tell because it is black on black, but she is rocking shorts with tights.  I absolutely love winter shorts and am obsessed with the shoes!

Maxing out

The star of street style this fall is the maxi!  Everywhere I turn I see the maxi flawlessly paired with leather coats, utility jackets, and oversized cozy sweaters.  The way to successfully pull off the fall maxi is to respect proportions and make sure the maxi is the centerpiece of the look.

Camo

Camo has made the most unexpected yet refreshing appearance this season.  A print normally found in the woods during hunting trips or on the battlefield has made its way onto fashionistas and red carpets.  Camo adds an air of indifference and ruggedness to each look acting as the perfect print to protect you from the chilly fall and winter winds.

the studs add edge to the already rugged look. i also love the red pop of color.

Autumn Inspiration

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year.  I love when the air turns crisp, the leaves start to change, and all you need is a light jacket to stay warm.  Acting as a staple and statement with each wear, finding the perfect fall jacket is crucial to rounding out your wardrobe and this year is no different than any other.  My go to this fall is J. Crew’s utility jacket.  It is the perfect transition weight and the army green almost acts as a neutral color allowing it to easily be paired with a broad range of colors, patterns and textures.  I have no doubt that this jacket will be in everyone’s closet this fall!
This post also features my fall uniform, which is a men’s oversized shirt, leggings (and yes I am wearing them as pants, *gasp*), boots, an oversized scarf, and obvs my item jacket (which will be replaced by my leather coat as it gets chillier).  While I wear everything featured in my blog in real life (multiple times, paired with different pieces depending on my mood) this look more so than any other is the truest reflection of me.  

Jacket: J. Crew (found here), Pants: Ann Taylor Loft (old, similar found here), Shirt: Simon Spurr (last season, similar found here), Scarf: Zara (old, similar found here), Boots: Jeffrey Campbell (last season, similar found here), Bag: Michael Kors (last season, similar found here)

Mixing patterns is tricky, but on trend, so an easy way to experiment is with a patterned scarf

One of the reasons I love this jacket so much is because of the gold finishing, which is accentuated by gold jewelry.

A good boot is crucial to surviving fall and winter! I love these because they add edge to any look, but the loose wrap differentiates them from the classic motorcycle boot.
