Have you ever had the experience of putting certain pieces together for the first time, looking in the mirror, and feeling every cell in your body go “ahhhhh”? That’s the Style Sweet Spot, and this outfit hit the bullseye for me. I kept the styling simple here to let the proportions do the heavy lifting, but will probably add a lightweight scarf next time, or a long necklace. A short knit jacket would work well for layering. (You can’t see it, but I’m also wearing a silk tunic tank underneath for warmth.)
I hadn’t replaced my bootcut jeans since losing weight a little over a year ago, and wasn’t in a hurry to do so. I’ve been enjoying my skinnies, but this slightly flared cut is looking fresh to me again, especially when worn with a bit of heel. My past experience with bootcuts was that they are frequently cut just a bit too loose in the upper leg and tend to bag right above the knee. This pair from Citizens of Humanity changed my mind. The fabric is very soft and the slim cut is what I was looking for, but even the Petite version was a bit too long so I had them hemmed.
A recommendation: when you have pants hemmed, be sure the alterations person measures and pins both legs. I have one leg slightly longer than the other, which often results in an uneven hem if only one side is measured. It doesn’t really show with skinny, ankle or slim pants, but with a wider shaped hem like this, the discrepancy is more obvious.
This shot was actually from another day, but you can see the earrings better here, as well as my new lunettes from Face à Face. I love that the side pieces are a different color than the frames. The lipcolor is “Florence” from Trish McEvoy.
Do you have a formula for your own Style Sweet Spot?
