As you know, Karl Lagerfield recently passed away. No matter what your opinion of him, Karl, with his reign at Chloe and Chanel, influenced the way we dressed for years. And no doubt, that influence will continue for years. It’s the end of an era.
But what do you do when the party’s over? I’ve never been great at goodbyes, or change, and while the homebody part of me loves going home, some parties are hard to leave. There’s nothing wrong with lingering, right? Or wearing Karl’s creations for years, towing the line between revering the past and being excited about what’s to come.
Fashion tip of the party?
Don’t be afraid to wear the men’s pants. Literally.
Every item in this outfit, sans shoes, is from the men’s department. I love men’s button downs-the arm length, tailoring, and fit are perfect for me. Something that may be new to try? Men’s pants. They won’t be the exact same fit (they can be a bit on the roomier side, lower rise, and button on the opposite side), but there are times when men’s pants are the perfect thing. Often, the men’s section will have different colors, prints, and pockets than the women’s section. I don’t like to leave fashion unexplored. My favorite men’s pants? Tux. They can go slouchy yet still feel elegant, and are perfect for a party.
Below, I’ve linked various tux pants and bow ties (and amazing shoes!) for your shopping pleasure.
They may not all be Karl, but looks like this feel a bit like him. We could also shop CHANEL as a way to say goodbye?
