As the weather continues to change, it's time to take out the sweaters and decide which bottoms you are going to wear.
It's true that when shopping for some new fall bottoms you'll find wide leg pants, including gaucho and sailor style pants, on the racks.
With that said, it's also a style that can be quite intimidating. Yet, by keeping some key styling points in mind, you'll soon find that you can incorporate one of fall's key trends into your wardrobe.
Style Tip One - The Waist
When wide leg pants have a higher waist, it will help to elongate your legs. Although, depending on your body shape, you'll want to keep in mind a few key takeaways.

Style Tip Two - The Length
To gaucho or not to gaucho. The wide leg pant of the gaucho can be hard to pull off. Although the long legged will not have an issue, if you have shorter legs, I advise pairing them with heels or heeled boots, which will help elongate your legs and your calves. Otherwise, the gaucho pant can run the risk of shortening your look.

Style Tip Three - The Layers
An Adea Layering Top is an ideal piece to wear with wide leg pants, as they offer a nice contrast to the fuller bottom. Yet, don't think you need to stop there. Even with wide leg pants and especially if you have a fitted top on, pair a long vest, such as one that hits right below the hips, with your wide leg and high-waist pants. You can even pair a blazer with your wide leg pants and an Adea Layering Top for a work option.

Most importantly, keep in mind your best asset and work to make the eye go there. Happy styling!

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
Roughly eight years ago, I was chatting with a young lady in her twenties when she started raving about something called “Birchbox.” I stopped her at once and said, “What on earth is Birchbox?” Well, she looked at me as if I had two heads and said with dismay, “You don’t know about Birchbox!”
