I fell in love with the idea of a cropped flare pant when Emma Elwin wore this head to toe navy look during the Men’s shows in January. Since then, this above the ankle silhouette has become my must have pants for fall. It’s showing up everywhere, in everyday denim at Proenza Schouler , with weekend casual details at 3.1 Phillip Lim, and in luxe leather at The Row. Making an appearance at the Alexander McQueen resort show (looks 18 + 19) is clear proof that this abbreviated silhouette has staying power.
Would you wear it?
The Pre-Fall shows are giving us tons of mono-tone looks, but the most refreshing of them all is the lipstick colors that range from wine to electric! Whether its casual, professional or fit for a night out, it is easier to wear than it sounds. Pairing red toned separates together or accessorizing with colors of the same, you can’t go wrong in head to toe rouge.

Two of my favorites, the Olsen twins and beautiful handbags… The girls looked laid back glam at Barney’s where they celebrated the launch of their handbags for The Row. The edited silhouettes of the bags lend themselves to showing off the amazing high quality materials they are made from.
