The Frayed Jean and the Square Toe Boot

These jeans are everything I’ve been searching for. I’ve been needing more black jeans lately and undoubtedly I was in desperate need of a statement hem on my jeans. The frayed jean look is fun and city chic. Per usual I am rocking the high-waisted style which helps elongate my legs. I paired them with my mock-neck shirt from Asos and my brand new boots from River Island.

I don’t know what it is about patent leather boots, but I am immediately attracted to them. I was looking for a new boot with a mid-level heel and a square toe. A square toe is extremely in style right now and I was so excited to find my dream pair from River Island.

I also threw on this gray cardigan sweater from Eliza Plume Boutique it is so cozy and very sleek looking for a cardigan. It has more structure like a jacket versus a normal slouchy cardigan. It definitely gives your outfit a more polished look rather than a more relaxed one.

High-Neck Chic

As I have said in my previous articles. It is all about the high-necks for me right now. Clothes are becoming looser and as you have seen the skinny jeans are fading away. Initially when I saw this dress online I was in love. Then I got it home. I slipped it on excitedly and then felt a little weird. Realizing I hadn’t actually pieced my outfit together I threw on my heel-pointed booties and it felt a hundred times better staring into that mirror. The dress is not super body-hugging so naturally it made me more uncomfortable than usual. Whenever you have an apple or pear shaped body the looser fitting clothing can make you feel bigger than you actually are. This is where a small heel will help. It elongates your leg to make your legs look slimmer and your stride more confident. This dress may be a big step for some people, but for others all it takes is a few accessories and everyone will be gawking over your outfit.

So You Thought Culottes Would Come and Go? So Did I.

Last year around this time, culottes were getting a lot of attention. I loved them, but didn’t feel I needed to make the investment. Now after being in the city for the summer, I want a pair in every color. I have been scouting the web for the perfect pair after some failed attempts at a Rag & Bone sample sale. The best places I found to snag these were Misguided (if they weren’t sold out) or of course my all time favorite ASOS.

The pair that I have on is extremely comfortable. They are casual without looking like sweatpants, but in all reality they feel like sweat pants. They are so comfortable I wanted to sleep in them and they make your outfit instantly chic.

Now in regards to my high-neck top. I’m obsessed. The first day of my internship in New York City, I met the most beautiful Belgium girl wearing a high-neck t-shirt dress and I have been obsessed ever since. These tops are a chic twist on your day-to-day comfortable throw-it-on tops.
