so how does classic style merge with trends? very carefully. unless it’s denim which i’m never averse to sneaking into my closet. and it’s on sale. like this pair, i found for a song. when they arrived, i was stumped as to what shoes to wear. and shoes make or break the outfit so choosing the correct footwear is key. then i decided to pair these beauties (also on sale end of the season) with my new denim and i knew my problem was solved. the block heel is high and has a weight to it that balances the wide-leg jeans. also, when i’m testing the trend waters, i anchor the outfit with wardrobe classics. first, the color scheme is quintessential black and white. second, a black tee and white blazer are core basics and belong in everyone’s closet. third, a hobo bag is not only classic but lends a casual-chic ‘tude that this ootd needed. and while these culotte jeans aren’t everyone’s cup of tea i’m thinking you just might see these again before summer’s end.
