If you are someone who doesn’t have much of an interest in fashion or trends, it can be hard to put together an outfit. The good news is, all it takes is adding a few staple items to your closet to enhance your look. No matter your age or style, these pieces are timeless and don’t need to break the bank.
The great thing about belts is they are functional and add style to your look. There are a variety of belts out there. From wide leather belts to dainty, intricate ones. When deciding on where to start it is best to consider quality. An accessory like this can last you a long time so you don’t have to buy another one. Something to consider would be if it is real leather and where it is made. Many people like to buy American-made products to support the jobs in the country. You also want to think about the look you are going for. Some people prefer a traditional, simple look. Other people may prefer a more stylish, trendy look. No matter what your style is, there is a belt out there for you.
Another way to take your wardrobe to the next level is by adding a hat. There are a ton of styles out there so you are sure to find the one that fits the look you’re going for. If you are at a sporting event you may throw on a baseball cap with that team’s logo on it. If you are going out, you may add a fedora or wide brim to dress up. When it comes to headwear, the possibilities of how and what to wear are endless.
A watch can be worn with almost any outfit, for any occasion. Men and women wear them when they are working out, going to a nice event, or just doing their everyday routines. Not only does a watch tell you the time, but some can also track your fitness stats and heart rate. This accessory is not only stylish, but it is also functional. A watch is something you can have for a very long time. When you are choosing a watch, consider how long you will have it and the quality it should be.
Deciding what you need in your closet to complete your wardrobe can be overwhelming. The best place to start is having a few key accessories that you can wear all the time, with multiple looks and styles.
Did you happen to see the TikToc that says you are really showing your age if you have a side part and still wear skinny jeans? Well, I have had that side part forever but skinny jeans never were a good look for me. So 1 out of out 2 is not so bad!!!! Anyway, flares are back. Though for me, they never went out!!!! I love the look of flare jeans with pointed flats, kitten heels, or boots. And in my opinion, crop flares are even better. I have partnered today with Nordstrom to bring you some of the greatest flare style jeans, out there, including some of my own faves!!!! Bon Weekend!!!
Here is a pair for all of our tall girls. I love love this long and lean looking style.
These double button Paige jeans got great reviews and are best sellers!
In my option, Frame makes the absolute best jeans. This crop mini boot flare is a fan fave. It looks good on all body types and is just the right length.
I recently discovered this brand KUT From the Cloth. They make a really stylish and good quality jean at a great price point (not easy to find). I chose to show the distressed flare for all of my ripped jean lovers!!!
Everyone LOVES Veronica Beard and these jeans are no exception. Just great looking overall!!!
I have never owned a pair of the brand Mother jeans, but I have friends who swear by them and this pair looks awesome.
I saved the best for last….Le Bardot by Frame is hands down the absolute pair of jeans I have ever ever owned. I have them in this dark denim and white. Every single time I wear them people ask me who makes my jeans. It’s incredible. There are plenty of nights I go out and my friends and I have our Le Bardot’s on. They are that good and that popular!!!

I have been obsessed with Bill Cunningham for years. I worked at 57th and 5th and loved seeing Bill in action on the “Bergdorf Corner” where he would photograph fashionistas, for the New York Time’s Style Section. His book, Bill Cunningham: On the Street, Five Decades of Iconic Photography by The New York Times is this week’s Book Club choice.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The first published collection of photographs by the icon of street style, bringing together favorites published in The New York Times alongside never-before-seen work across five decades.
“A dazzling kaleidoscope from the gaze of an artist who saw beauty at every turn.”—André Leon Talley
Bill Cunningham’s photography captured the evolution of style, of trends, and of the everyday, both in New York City and in Paris. But his work also shows that street style is not only about fashion; it’s about the people and the changing culture.
These photographs—many never before seen, others having originally appeared in The New York Times and elsewhere—move from decade to decade, beginning in the 1970s and continuing until Cunningham’s death in 2016. Here you’ll find Cunningham’s distinctive chronicling of the 1980s transit strike, the rise of 1990s casual Fridays, the sadness that fell over the city following 9/11, Inauguration Day 2009, the onset of selfies, and many other significant moments.
This enduring portfolio is enriched by essays that provide a revealing portrait of Cunningham and a few of his many fascinations and influences, contributed by Cathy Horyn, Tiina Loite, Vanessa Friedman, Ruth La Ferla, Guy Trebay, Penelope Green, Jacob Bernstein, and a much favored subject, Anna Wintour. More than anything, On the Street is a timeless representation of Cunningham’s commitment to capturing the here and now.
