White Shirt + Blue Culottes

I’m obsessed with a classic white button down shirt – so chic and versatile.  I usually roll my sleeves up to give it a laid-back edge.  It’s hard to resist not pairing with these very in-the-moment culotte pants.  If you wear a skirt to work, you surely can wear these flattering wide-legs.  This pair is possibly one of the most comfortable pants of all time in an airy, lightweight chambray.  They look polished with a button shirt for work and oh-so casual with sandals on the weekend.

Gray Matters

Gray has been my go-to neutral for years now.  It is sophisticated, calming while also being an extremely versatile color palette to mix with other colors.  Unlike black, gray has the wide spectrum of shades from almost-black gray to illuminating silky gray.  I dare to say it’s the best neutral of all.


Add some gray-chicness to your workwear with a sleek blazer (use code 50SALE for extra 50% off!) and cool wrap watch.  Whether you are going to the office or a weekend night out, these ankle boots will elevate your style, literally.  Look extra chic paired with wide-leg pants.  By the way the Falabella tote by Stella McCartney is my dream bag of the moment.  The combination of pale fabric and the reflective hardware is subduedly beautiful.  And what’s better than gray shadows for smoky eyes?  Go for lighter gray shades for daytime wear and add a bit of drama in the evening by highlighting with darker hues.

Look Great with a Pair of Wide-Leg Pants

I call wide-leg pants my happy pants.  They are a stylish choice for a day at the office, right into the evening and you will still be utterly comfortable.  I’m always eager to share my fondness for wide-leg pants especially when I come across such chic wide-leg ensembles.  The outfit seen on Ellen Lubin-Sherman from The Essential of Fabulous is my latest fashion inspiration.  I adore her cool, eclectic vibe ~ from head scarf, open-toe booties and to perfectly loose trousers.  It’s clear to me that Ellen is confident with her style as she knows exactly what she wants & likes.  Love that don’t you!
