What I Wore: Wearing The Pants

Armani Exchange red trousers with Blood is the New Black "Terror" Boyfriend Tee, Monki denim shirt (a hand-me-down from Jayne), vintage belt and Theysken's Theory pumps / photos by Joshua Spencer

Natalie and I are hard at work styling a 20-person campaign this week which led us to talking about the "stylist uniform." Namely about how too much of our day can onsist of (often literal) running around and needing a "uniform" that can take us from air kisses  at a 'shcmancy showroom (secret: my black lipstick doubles as kiss-kiss repellant!) to schlepping returns to hands-and-knees digging through a warehouse. Looking like a Fashion Week street style snap, while fun (sometimes), just isn't always practical. But you knew that already.

As my day to day routine varies, I don't know that I'll ever have, nor truly want, a "uniform" per se, however I do love transitional pieces that can take me from "Stylist" to "Assistant" to "Writer" to "Creative Director" to "WTF am I doing with me life?" all in one day.

I won't wax poetic on the "Pop of color for Spring!", but since dark wash denim gets monotonous and I get "are you feeling ok?" looks when I opt for leggings-as-pants, these red trousers (sent to me by A/X and available here) have been my saving grace this week. Give or take a 6" wedge, they say "business" when I need them to and "casual" when I don't. And I think we've talked about this before, but red is still my power color, so they may or may not give me superpowers, too. Always a plus.

PS - Braids!

Such a great look! The denim looks great with the red. And the braids are beautiful on you! I won’t ever get over your shoes. Jeffrey Campbell has a couple pretty similar ones and I own a pair…but they’ll be these.

I love both of the outfits… What can I say but CHIC! & Your hair is phenomenal! :D

And as a uniform for Stylist…. Totally a Sham! :p I feel that stylist should be able to wear whatever they want… Whenever they want! :D As a way to express their personality through their style.

Those white wedges are so fresh paired with the red trousers! And not to mention your hair down is glorious.

Jealous of all that sun you’re soaking in. None of that to speak for up here in PDX.

You most likely don’t remember me, but long time ago you gave me some advice on being a fashion intern while you were interning with Teen Vogue. :)

This is extremely late, but thanks!!!!!

Phenomenal blend of color to form an entertaining and trendy outfit. Your hair is tremendous and you certainly wear the braids well! P.S. totally with you, red is the way to go.

I love your braids! What hair did you use? I’ve been wanting braids for a little bit now and yours are perfect examples of what I want. Did you dip the ends in hot water?

I am so in love wit hthis off-shoulder tee in white color which is half-tucked in bright red slim trousers. Keep it cool with white wedge pumps. I also like the oversized denim shirt worn atop this combo.
