“Nothing retains its form; new shapes from old. Nature, the great inventor, ceaselessly contrives. In all creation, be assured, there is no death—no death, but only change and innovation; what we people call birth is but a different new beginning; death is but to cease to be the same. Perhaps this may have moved to that and that to this, yet still the sum of things remains the same.”

The revival of the 1980’s harem pants has been one of our favourite trends. They stray away from the traditional stiff pair of black trousers and are so much more fun to wear. We wanted to keep this look comfortable but also chic at the same time. So we threw on a heather gray sweater and an oversized coat along with our harem pants to keep it casual. Then we added our favourite pair of black stiletto heels and our classic black bag to keep it chic. From grabbing a cup of joe with your friends to attending a meeting, this is a perfect look for almost all occasions. Want to know one of our best-loved tricks? Roll up your sleeves or your pant legs to make things more casual because a little peek of skin is always refreshing.
Take our most classic piece, the black bag which goes with everything. Then take one of our favourite summer staples, the classic maxi dress. It makes us sad that it’s close to impossible to wear during this time of year because of the cold weather. Well guess what? It’s totally possible with some layering tricks. First take our super comfy striped maxi dress then pop on an edgy leather jacket. We know what you’re thinking- That’s totally not enough. And we agree. So we put on a camo jacket. We love playing with prints so we have combined a camo print with our classic stripes to create some contrast. If you’re still cold you can always put on a sweater or a cardigan underneath your jackets (Just a quick tip). Although the magic of a maxi dress is that it covers your legs we didn’t forget about them. If you need a warmer option you can always put on a pair of black tights and knee high socks along with a pair of black booties. Now if that’s not enough for you (We know, the cold can be scary sometimes), we have also added a black ribbed beanie to keep the warmth from our head from escaping. Our super casual look wouldn’t be as put together if it didn’t have our classic black bag.
