Friday Forecast: The Ruffle Hem Pant

Fashion Blogger, Frilly Hem, Ruffle Hem, Street Style, Trends, Winter Style, Winter Trends

Have you snatched up a pair of the season’s most coveted ruffle hem crop trousers yet?

I have been on the prowl for the perfect pair these days for the following reasons:

  1. Not only are they ridiculously playful (they lend just the right amount of unexpected punctuation to the pant’s chic simplicity.), but you can actually rock them in the boardroom with a polished pump.
  2. They pair perfectly with booties + I can’t stop, won’t stop searching for the perfect gold bootie. Suggestions anyone?
  3. We’ve been rocking the romantic ruffle trend on tops for days. Let’s give our trousers a moment in the spotlight.

These Club Monaco sweater pants are on the top of my wishlist, but I just can’t get behind the price tag on a SUCH a trendy piece. I’m thinking about starting off with a fast fashion trouser before I make the plunge.

What do you think?

Winter White

Winter White - KatWalkSF

Is this the most practical trend in the world?

Nope.

But the layering of shades of winter white are far too appealing and cozy to avoid for fear of getting dirty. There are no rules with winter white (forget the white after Labor Day rule – PLEASE). The shades do not need to match. Mix rich fabrics with texture and fringe, throw on a glittery heel and you are good-to-go.

Put A Turtleneck Under Everything

& Other Stories - A-Line Cotton Dress

Turtlenecks are a winter staple that no one should bear the season without, and I am going to prove to you exactly why. Since looking stylish while managing the cold temperatures is rather challenging (so many layers!), I’ve found that turtlenecks of all shapes and sizes can be our best friend.

For this look, I took one of my favorite (super slim) turtlenecks from Amour Vert + layered it under this & Other Stories a-line dress. Since this knit turtleneck is fine enough, the warm-weather top makes an absolute perfect layering piece to add warmth to a once summery look.

LUV.IT – The Latest Shopping App + A Few Of My Favorite Things

Genuine People - Long Bomber

I recently discovered a new fashion app Luv.It AND it has been fulfilling all of my late night iPhone shopping needs. Luv.it is an app that allows you to search for products, create a style network, shop + discover trending brands, AND collect cash back on every purchase. It’s really quite satisfying to browse all of the items they have on the app…late night…when I should be sleeping! A ton of the of the designers on the app are emerging + delivering some kickass products.

LuvIt has nearly 70 brands available in the app and is adding more every week. Some of my favorites are Marrin Costello (duh), Genuine People and Eleven Paris. One of the best parts about the app is that it is so easy to use, clear + beautiful. The check out is so easy too– you literally just slide a button (like the motion you do to power off an iPhone) and then you’re all set! Shipping varies depending on the designer, but the entire process is oh-so-easy and satisfying.

Gucci - Leather Soho Bag

Genuine People - Long Bomber

Now let’s take a minute to talk about what I scored on Luv.It: This AMAZING long bomber jacket from Genuine People. The crew over at Genuine People captures emerging trends, fuse them with urban edge + attitude, and present them in meticulously curated collections. Light, clean lines cut with sharp sophistication. Bold, edgy flair tempered by the understated feminine AND I am obsessed AND grateful for the Luv.It app for introducing me to this KILLER brand.

I paired the long bomber jacket with the go-to Athleta tights (see my entire post dedicated to my love to them here) and my Superga sneakers from our local Superga SF store AND voila! You’ve got yourself a few of my favorite things and a super chic (yet comfy) outfit.

Friday Forecast: The Solo Earring

There’s something incredibly chic about wearing only one earring. Even though it may look like you’ve lost an earring, wearing a single ear is almost always a chic decision (when styled the right way).

I’ve recently re-discovered Pinterest + forgot what an incredible resource it was. It is a little dangerous for my credit card, but I have found myself inspired + excited about fashion in a new + exciting way – insert the solo earring trend + all these killer images that I found on the internet.

Here’s the thing about this trend: it doesn’t really work with small, dainty earrings. The appeal is in its over the top size and style. Overly embellishing one ear, whether it’s with a fancy ear cuff, a trendy ear jacket or a shoulder-grazing statement earring, requires guts. It attracts attention to the fact that you are bold enough to go against the grain and rock one earring like the rebel that you are!
