High Rise flared denim, block heels, and fringe equals 3 trends in one. Yes! You heard that right. It can be a bit intimidating to play with so many trends in one outfit and goes against many people’s rule book, but my personal opinion is that sometimes rules are meant to be broken. Because it just may work- case in point!
I blame it on the 70’s trend that has me all over it like Nutella on a spoon. What hooked me is the high rise flare jeans (my daily go-to) and block heel- the “IT” Fall and Winter bootie. The high rise flare, I feel like is so flattering to my body type and shape and I’ve seen working well for others with different body types than mine. So before you ditch this trend take my word for it, hop on over to the mall and try it on. You may love it and want to get it in every wash, seriously. Another obsession of mine has been the sleeveless turtleneck tops. For those that don’t know, I work at Baptist Hospital as an Event Planner so dressing business casual and not losing the trendy vibes is my daily forte. I’m sure you’re all sick of seeing me on my social media platforms wearing the turtleneck sleeveless red top (also seen here), and thanks to Ellen Tracy, I found the perfect dressy and more sophisticated version. My favorite part about this top is the pleat on the side of the collar, its so chic adding a feminine touch to it. It is absolutely gorgeous!
Here’s a few helpful fancy tips while shopping for these trends;
- When picking out the perfect block heel- make sure that they are sturdy, chunky and not clunky with a streamline upper. These pair from Ellen Tracy are the perfect option, because it fits right into those descriptions and are soooo comfortable. These “IT” booties are definitely made for walking!!
- High rise flattering flare denim are so versatile- They work great when paired with a button down top, solid top and cardigans, ponchos, a flowy vest and my newest favorite way with the ongoing trend of crop tops. Since flared jeans aren’t tight, fitted tops are usually a great way to balance out your outfit but loose tops work too.
- Fringe has been having its moment for a few seasons now. I first introduced this trend to my wardrobe back in March (seen here) and slowly have been adding it to all my looks (most recently seen here). I love that it adds such a fun and flirty dimension to your look when walking and moving right along. This trend is not just for the festival season and can be subtly added to all your looks with either accessorizing it or by paring it with your favorite fringe-y heels or suede jacket with fringe-y arms.
