GET THE LOOK:
Chinos are such a classic piece, but I hadn’t really every tried incorporating them into my wardrobe. When Anthropologie asked me to style a pair, I had my reservations. But after a few minutes playing in my closet, I quickly realized that the relaxed fit of this pair is very much aligned with my personal style. I went about pairing them with twists on other classic pieces, like a striped shirt updated with a bell sleeve and a jacket that’s taken on a kimono-like silhouette—don’t you just die over the details on this kimono jacket, though? I rode the wave of my already eclectic choices with a pair of statement earring. They’re leather! Once I went that far, how else could I top off the look than with a leopard print bootie? Am I right? Heels, of course, to balance out the boyish fit of the chino. This look was definitely a lesson in pairing unexpected pieces, and I hope it inspires you to mix two (or three, or four!) pieces that you might not have thought to pair before. Extra points for prints and embellishment. Have fun!
