Styled: Flare Pants

Ahhhhh, flare pants bring some memories of the early 2000’s. I was only a young girl but I know my older sisters definitely rocked those boot cut and flare jeans. They’re back again because of the 70’s trend but now the flare is making it’s way to other types of pants. Being a curious fashion lover, I tried on a lot of flare pants but oh man, they did not suit me. Until now!! I found a great pair that fits me perfectly and doesn’t look like I’m wearing a maxi skirt/pj pants. Not going to lie, I kind of felt like Selena Gomez when she was wearing that silk PJ set around Paris.

Outfit 19 felt chic but relaxed, put together but comfy. I had to wear my new wool hat again, so lets pretend that the grey beanie is being swapped out for this. Wearing joggers usually only gives off one type of vibe: casual. I figured by adding a silver, statement necklace and my wool hat, it would give off a different vibe. I think it worked because I love the way it all came together.

 Outfit 20 (THE LAST OUTFIT… reference to Ice Age[the last melon]) was super comfy and you can definitely add your favourite accessories to it. I decided to tuck in the tee or else every piece of clothing would have been baggy and I would have looked like a towel. Not joking. Adding the beanie really pulled the look together to be be really comfy and casual.

Outfits 17+18 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

It’s all about the leather and black in outfits 17+18…what else is new? Layers are making another comeback in these outfits because lets get real, if you can wear multiple items at once and still look sweet, then why not, amiright?

 Outfit 17 had a lot of layers, again, a necessity for the fall weather. I used my scarf kind of as my jacket, wrapped around my shoulders. I added the flannel around the waste for a sporty look.

Outfit 18 kind of had the same vibe, but I actually wore my flannel and added a leather jacket. I think it looks cool how the shirt is really long, the flannel is a bit shorter and then the jacket is a lot shorter. Wearing two items with leather is okay here because it’s broken up by the shirts.

Outfits 13+14 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

As I’m creating different ways to wear these 15 pieces, I find that I gravitate to mixing the same tops together.  I’m trying to explore new options and find new ways to wear each piece. Back to basics in black jeans and ankle boots; two important pieces to style a number of ways.

Outfit 13 includes some colour!! This burnt orange looks great with all black (duh, black matches everything). Still a casual look, with black jeans, boots and a leather jacket.

Outfit 14 had to include the scarf again because it kept my hands and body warm while shooting. Blanket scarfs are a MUST HAVE for the fall/winter season. Wearing black jeans, tee and leather jacket for this look. I decided to show a little bit of my socks through my boots, it was seriously a coincidence that they matched my scarf.

More outfits!! I’m finally styling the leather leggings, two different ways today. Leather leggings can be dressed up or down so they’re a great piece to pack.

Outfit 11 was a mix of dressing up/down, the silver necklace and chiffon tank dressed it up, while the oversized cardigan dressed it down. Adding another jacket over top is a way to wear this outfit for the colder months. This outfit includes the bag, cardigan, tank, leggings, boots and sunglasses.

Outfit 12 included a new hat that I bought so of course, it’s optional. I added the oversized tee, leather jacket and threw on my scarf and hat. Wearing two different tones of grey looked cool with the all black outfit. Definitely going to be wearing this scarf more often because it’s getting colder and colder.

outfits 9+10 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

The easiest way to make a lot of outfits from a limited amount of pieces is to layer. Layering is also key when it comes to the cold weather. Speaking of cold weather, dannnnnng, it has been getting colder and colder. I needed to get the outfits with the skirt done because soon enough, everything will be covered by my huge winter parka.

Outfit 9 had a sort of preppy vibe and I was unsure of wearing a leather jacket with a leather skirt but then I thought “there can never be enough leather” (faux, that is). I like how the plaid goes with the three Adidas stripes, pulls the outfit together. Of course I had to tuck the flannel in and wear socks that show out of my sneakers.

Outfit 10 was super comfy, layering the flannel under the cowl-neck sweater. Layering a button down shirt under a sweater is a cool way to add dimension to an outfit and keep warm. I love the way oversized sweaters look paired with an a-line skirt for Fall.

outfits 7+8 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

More outfits have arrived! Since a lot of the pieces are black or grey, wearing light coloured jeans add a lot more colour to the outfit without being too wild. I mean light wash jeans aren’t really wild at all, but you know what I mean. I usually like to wear a belt with these jeans, since they are slightly high-waisted and of course, tuck in my shirt.

Outfit number 7 was simple, it included the jacket, lace-up top, jeans, boots and purse. The length of the top and the slightly high-waisted pants met right in the middle for the perfect balance. Adding a belt would be a great idea as well to add an interest point in the middle of the outfit.

DSC01173

Outfit 8 was really cozy, mostly because of the scarf. The long tee looked cool with the crop of the jacket. Another simple outfit; jacket, tee, jeans, boots and purse. This outfit gives off a slouchy yet put together vibe because of the baggy jeans contrasting with the tailored jacket.

OOTD | IN SCOTLAND!

I’ve been in Scotland for about two weeks and I friken love it here. It’s nothing like Toronto, or Canada for that matter. It’s so funny to see and experience all the differences between countries. To name one, no one piles onto the busses, no pushing or shoving (like on the TTC), they make a line and enter the bus in an orderly fashion…..crazy concept!

Onto the good stuff, I finally took some photos!! There are so many spots to take photos because every building looks like a cool castle. Everything is grey which makes for a great aesthetic, which is what it’s all about these days. Went to a park down the street from the residence I’m living in and got some shots. I have to say though, I regret everything I packed and so my outfits are literally just jeans, a tee or sweater and leather jacket. I do go to the shops like everyday, so hopefully I can mix it up once and a while.

OKAY. Legit though, I have been looking for an oversized black tee since birth and guess what? I FINALLY FOUND IT. I never usually look in Brandy Melville because I felt the ‘one size fits all’ wouldn’t fit me. While in Rome, as they say, I went into their store and tried this one on and I didn’t fall in love until I got back to the hotel and tried it on again. The tee is super soft and just flows every which way I wanted it too. It fits a bit tighter on the chest and arms and flows out.

Textures

There is a lot going on here, faux leather, heavy knit, studs and suede. Who cares though, it works. Fall is sweater weather and I am definitely taking advantage of it by wearing a thick knit sweater with faux leather leggings/joggers.

Usually, I am wearing all-black, but I always try to add a pop of colour somewhere. Whether its my lipstick, necklace, purse or shoes. Shoes won this time. I am IN LOVE with this bright red for fall. Red and Fall go together like peanut butter and jelly or pizza and beer. You get the point. I love the loafer, preppy style of these flats and of course the POP!

Are these even called leggings? If you watched my hungry4new-in video (click link to watch!!) then you know I describe them as half legging, half jogger because they are kind of loose and kind of tight. Hopefully you understand what I mean. Sometimes there is no easy way to explain how something fits and these pants are one of them.
