The Flared Trouser Jean….It’s not always about the Skinny Jean. All though the skinny is super versatile. The flared Trouser has a great place in your Jean pile. The flared Jean works great for a dressed up look Shown above & perfect for making your legs look longer. Typically sold with a longer heam works perfect with a heel and you want it to cover the top of your foot so your shoe peeps out, given you a longer leg💕 Now who doesn’t want that! 😘
Enjoy your week❤️ D’Arcy

NYFW …. The clothes! What to wear when you attend NWFW In the Fall….With this being My First Time, not a lot of time to plan and unusually warm weather, I felt I did pretty good on the packing and choosing the right outfits for for shows, travel, sight seeing and Nightlife. I didn’t feel out of place or uncomfortable in any situation but I did learn pack only clothes that photograph well ( I wore a pretty dress that I love to the Social House event and It doesn’t photograph well…. It was perfect for Brunch which I knew It would be but I knew in my heart it wasn’t going to photograph well and it didn’t!) not having time to change to get to Social House…. I missed out on Having some great photograph opportunities….
I would make changes for sure….. Pack More skirts & dresses, only clothes that photograph well, I didn’t need as much jewelry as I packed…. ( narrow down Jewlery to go with each outfit!) being my first time I brought Casual and dressy for each outfit❤️ I also brought to Many shoes Way to Many Shoes Narrow down to My Favorite Black Heel’s, shoes to match My dressier dress, 1 pair of sandals , pair of Tennis shoes and 1 flip flop and 1 Bootie or wedge! Really Take the time to match. Shoes to multiple outfits…Shoes weigh a lot and you really need the spare weight!
Things I packed that I was so thankful for…. My black waxy leather jeans I wore 3 times and made 3 completely different outfits with differnt tops, jacket, shoes and accessories ( sorry we were rushing so much of the Time we forgot pictures of some outfits) my leather jacket… Not because it was cold ( it was unbearably hot a couple of the days) but to add a cool factor on your shoulders! My Hobo bag ❤️ goes cross body for sight seeing And travel day’s,(www.chicstyleutah.com) 1pair Of trendy jeans, shoe pads, gel for the heels, foot cream, Bandades, 2 portable charges, airborne and aspirin.
