My love for not so basic basics continues… Currently, I am on a high-waisted cropped flare jeans high, because, well… because they pair so beautifully with anything from crop tops to tucked in lose-fitting button-downs and everything in between. In fact, I am so addicted at this point, I’ve been buying them in every color imaginable, but the dark navy pair I am sporting in today’s post is my favorite by far.
Aside from the fact that this particular wash makes them a bit more evening appropriate, which means that not only can I wear them during the day, but I can easily dress them up for night, the reason why I love this particular pair os because of the way it fits. The high waist helps to elongate the silhouette, and the cropped length means that I can pair these with pretty much every shoe style imaginable from high-heeled pumps, and sappy sandals, to sneakers and slides. Love, love, love that!
So good with pretty much any shoe style imaginable, from boots to stilettos, I also love the fact that you can easily dress this combo up or down. Worn with heels and a clutch, this combo feels very chic and fresh for night, but add a pair of flats and a cross-body bag and you got yourself a cute daytime look:) Basically, the possibilities are endless, and of course you know how much I enjoy that!:)
This time around, I paired them with yet another favorite, i.e. a statement making button-down with exaggerated, bow-embellished sleeves. As I have mentioned before, as much as I love a good basic, I always look for special details that make those live-in basics a bit more special, and this top is a great example of that. Perfect on it’s own, I also love the way it looks under any structured topped like a cool leather or denim jacket, or my personal all-time favorite: a fitted, perfectly tailored blazer. Basically, win, win in every possible way and of course you know how much I love that!
