I’m a sucker for a good trouser, and I’ve always loved the wide legged trouser. But here’s my dilemma with these suckers: if I wear flats, they drag on the ground when I walk and get scuffed and dirty. And if I wear heels they always seem to be just a little too short. And when you live in a city where you walk an average of 8 miles a day you cannot be bothered by clothes that bother you. What I’ve noticed is I only grab for the things in my closet that I feel really great about and I know won’t let me down, or aren’t itchy, or aren’t too long/short.
When I made my list of investment pieces for my fall Capsule I put cropped trousers on the list. I thought ‘what a perfect compromise’. And I can wear them in multiple seasons. Double win. These Aritzia cropped trousers are the jam. When I tried them on I made sure I could wear them with multiple things like: a tucked in button up chambray, a silk tank, a slim fitted turtleneck, and even a simple white tee + my adidas sneakers.
Versatility ladies. This Capsule Wardrobe has cut my closet in over half, but every item I own I really love!
