There are pieces that I consider essentials and should be part of every wardrobe. While I often wear skinny jeans, trouser jeans are a good alternative to have in your closet. In a dark rinse, trouser (or flare) jeans look professional and polished. You can wear them now with a blazer, graphic tee and booties or sweater and wedge booties. In warmer months, pair trouser jeans with a sleeveless silk shirt and wedge sandals. Since these jeans can overwhelm, I recommend they be worn with heels to elongate your leg.


Today is the start of a new series where I will share a different wardrobe essential and how you can wear it, hopefully with items already in your closet. Look for this series twice a month on Tuesdays.
