New Year’s Fashion Resolution

Happy New Year!

There are New Year’s Resolutions, and then there are New Year’s Fashion Resolutions.  Today I want to focus on the latter.

While I do try to challenge myself to mix things up every day, for 2014 I want to step it up and step outside of my comfort zone.  Luckily, the Pre Fall 2014 runways are making that super easy to do!  The trend I’m dying to try, that also kind of terrifies me?  Wide leg leather pants.

See? Doesn’t this street styler make them seem cool?

I’ve been a hardcore devotee of leather pants forever, but I’ve always worn mine skintight and sexy.  Opting for a wide-leg pair in the New Year will definitely open up more sartorial doors.  I’m excited to play with proportions and see what happens!

Proenza Schouler Pre Fall 2014

My favorite versions on the Pre Fall 2014 runways were from Just Cavalli and Proenza Schouler.  Cavalli’s are more my speed, done in luxe black leather.  I’d wear these with a tight, possibly cropped tee shirt to make sure my shape isn’t obscured!  Proenza’s were great too; I love the rich oxblood color!  These would be trickier to navigate, but I might try them with my cropped black fur coat.  I can’t wait for these pairs to hit stores so I can start mixing things up!

What are your fashion resolutions for 2014?
