I’m really very curious about this: are you wearing what you wore a year ago today? Or have you made the transition from soft, indoor clothes to hard, outdoor ones? I’m sort of stuck in the middle: I want to be both insanely comfortable and reasonably well put-together most of the time, which is a tricky trick—made trickier by the fact that we’re in peak transitional wardrobe season— and I’m not sure I pull it off. But it’s also (by design) a look that’s pretty hard to screw up. Most mornings the first thing I head for are some Nili Lotan Paris pants (I don’t own this particular hue, but I do covet it). I know they’re drop-crotch and that that might be a bridge too far for many of you, but when I was wearing them recently, somebody told me that I had succeeded in making drop crotch pants look cool. Which is silly, of course, because it’s the pants were are doing all the work.
I’m pairing those trousers with a crisp poplin button down like this one most days.
On cool mornings and evenings, I throw on my trusty army jacket and go.
And I’m still clomping around in clogs. At this point, I think I will be forever.
I really prefer D-ring webbed belts these days to leather ones, because they’re less bulky, and often provide a welcome hit of color. OK, that’s my uniform of the moment. What’s yours?
