It’s about this time every year — the dark, cold days of January — that I find myself wearing almost the same outfit every day: This winter, it’s a black J.Crew crepe fluted skirt and cashmere dolman sweater, sometimes with a silk blouse layered underneath, with black fleece-lined tights and old black leather ankle boots. It’s warm, weather-suitable and, conveniently, not very memorable-looking.
You could say, therefore, that my wardrobe is in need of a winter pick-me-up.
Last week, I found in the form of J.Crew’s misty fog floral pant. Normally I steer clear of boldly printed pants, but I love how simple this pair looks when styled with a cashmere sweater of the same grey hue (see below). And because they’re cropped, I don’t have to worry about the bottoms getting any face-time with New York’s muddy winter streets.
J.Crew collection pant in misty fog floral, $298, available at J.Crew.
