Drop Crotch Pants Two Ways

DROPCROTCHPANTS

Like most people (I’m making assumptions here), I find it easier to shop and style myself if I have someone in mind when doing so. Not like, a guy or anything, but rather, an influence. And while I can appreciate what most overly styled people are wearing, it’s the so-called fashion renegade’s that I feel like I most connect with (you know, if my wardrobe was completely designer and seasonal, or something).

Of my influencers, there always seems to be one article of clothing that they all love and wear. Whether it’s Taylor Tomasi Hill, Christine Centenera, or Pip Edwards, drop crotch pants are a major staple in these ladies’ closets. Pip wears hers with hi-top trainers and sporty vests. Centenera wears hers in leather with heels and perfectly structured button ups. Tomasi Hill wears hers with just about everything, just about any way.

So while my own sense of fashion can never really make up it’s mind, having key items is something I’m not a stranger to, it just so happens that styling them differently every time is where the fun lies for me. This season I’m all over these Studio Nicholson trousers, so here they are, styled a couple of different ways (notice the complete lack of accessories? What did I tell you?).

Pants: Studio Nicholson; Sweatshirts: Givenchy, Carven; Bags: Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent; Shoes: Nike, Laurence Decade; Makeup: M.A.C, Elias Faas.

Accessory of the Moment: Palm Cuffs

When it come to accessorizing, we’re always told that less is more. For me, it’s always something that was too flashy. My mother and grandmother were not ones to wear shiny baubles or stones, it was either a thin gold watch (my grandmother) or a chunky men’s watch on a leather band (my mother).

These days the only accessories I wear are my glasses, my tattoos, and a single thumb ring (which, truth be told, is hiding an unsightly tattoo). Wearing anything more than that means the piece has to be special, something you won’t see anywhere else. There’s my gigantic Georg Jensen grape ring, my Margiela nose cuff, and my Balenciaga ring set. All worn entirely by themselves.

This season, I’m forgoing anything too blingy for yet another simple, refined design. The hand cuff has been spotted on celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker (when Carrie wears something, you know it must be cool, if not completely indy) and street style darlings like Leandra Medine. This seasons styles are in thin gold and silver, either plain or with a solitary pearl or string of stones.

Nike Does The Little Mermaid

940x593q80

Last spring, Nike released a limited edition iridescent high top that sold out before a lot of us even had a chance to log on to our laptops. Luckily, they took note of the chaos that ensued and are launching a new version of a mermaid metallic sneaker this fall.

The Nike Air Force1 Hi Premium in Pearl was released this week in Europe and is already on my fall wish list. I can’t wait to wear it with white jeans and a cream leather jacket.

R.T.CO Sunglasses Lookbook

I’m always drawn to beautiful design and art direction. I love simple, clean lines that make a statement. While I’m not much of a sunglass wearer (the bane of being a constant eyeglass wearer), I can appreciate a nice frame when i see one.

Today I discovered Berlin based brand R.T.CO. Everything is made and shot in the owners home here in Berlin. The graphics are simple yet impactful and beautiful—just like the collection. I’m inclined to get a pair and change them to prescription lenses. See it here.
