Hey girl, hey, and welcome to #Trending! Every Tuesday, we’ll be curating some of our favorite looks at varying price points.
Let’s face it, skinny jeans seriously suck. They are a) not flattering and b) basic. So what did I do when I heard bells were back? I chucked my skinnies to the back of my closet with a very passive agressive adieu and went shopping for the next best thing.
Last week we showed you FRAME Denim’s SS16 presentation at NYFW, where I found my new go-to jean for the fall. They’re dark-wash, very high-waisted, bell-bottomed, with a serious pocket situation. Off to Mercer Kitchen with some friends, they made their debut on the town with a cropped turtleneck and french-braids à la Khloe Kardashian. The best part? I have a very long torso and pretty short legs, but the flare effect elongates your entire frame. Sorry skinnies, bells have you beat.
But flares aren’t the only bells that are back. We’re also seeing bell sleeves. I’ve been obsessed with them ever since I saw Leandra Medine’s Instagram in a Rosie Assoulin top. We finally have a storage alternative for when we don’t want to carry a purse. Forget your bra, just stuff that shit in your sleeves!
In case you can’t afford Rosie Assoulin, shop my picks instead:
