What’s Haute: Miss Smarty Pants

By Jody Marich | jmarich@flagler.edu

Working in retail, I am lucky enough to follow fashion closely, along with my Google alerts that pop up daily. I love following the different trends for each season.

This fall it’s all about the bottom…pants and jeans that is. There are so many more options for work, leisure and play. There is the jegging, or jean leggings, cigarette pants, skinny dress pants and so on.

First and foremost, skinny is in. Skinny jeans have become a staple, but this year, skinny pants are a great option for work or going out. The fit allows for a very sleek look. Remember, with a skinny bottom you want to have more volume on top so you can balance out.

Skinny jeans are everywhere, from straight leg to ultra skinny, slouchy to cropped, it just depends on what style and look you are going for.

If you want to try a more daring style, go with jeggings. This body conscious fit is a great way to show off those fabulous legs. You can also try a skinny fit pant in a stretchy material for a chic night out look.

Great top choices to pair with include:

  • Dolman tops
  • Shark bite tees
  • Oversized tees
  • Banded bottom tops
  • Ruffled tops
  • Layering pieces, like flyaway cardigans, boyfriend jackets or military jackets

Military and cargo influences are huge this fall. Look for bottoms with details, including zippers and extra pockets. Also try to find pants in army green, camel, olive or navy to spice up your wardrobe and be fashion forward.

Hardware, washes and details oh my! Everything from acid wash jeans to studded designs and or details accent fall bottoms. From pants to jeans, more washes, colors, pockets and details are being offered to spice up your look. Be brave and try it all at once.

When it comes to what washes to wear for jeans, all types of gray are great choices along with dark denim. Also try saturated fall colors like eggplant, burgundy and deep olive.

Whether you want a subtle fashion forward look or an outright fashion statement, pants and jean this fall give you plenty of options. Glam rock, military and different materials allow for hundreds of choices to choose from. It’s all up to you and how you want to wear them.

Remember, fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
