Today is the debut of my J Brand Aviator trousers I bought. These are my wild card item for the season - they are slouchy and almost "balloon-like" in the legs and I absolutely love them. The fabric is divine and they are like wearing dressy pajama bottoms!
Because it snowed yesterday evening (uugggghhhh!) I'm not wearing my pointy toe ankle strap shoes but instead, my Doc Marcie boots with the Aviators. But I like how the zippered bottom of the trouser leg looks with the wedge combat-style boots. I added a simple black leather belt and then chose my abstract print citron/white/grey/black/taupe drapey tank, with faux tuck. To put structure back into the outfit, I chose my black leather blazer for a topper and scrunched the sleeves. To further play up the citron in the tank, I went with my small citron leather clutch for a handbag. No jewelry other than wedding band and a simple silver ring on the other hand, and my purple/clear glasses.
I'm really happy with how this turned out and think that adding the right top/topper can easily make these casual trousers into a work appropriate item. What do you think? Does it all work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
