I distinctly remember in recent years when the legging made it triumphant comeback. But remember not too long ago the legging and it’s slightly staid older sister the stirrup pant were passé. They were replaced in the mid-nineties to early two thousands when the trouser came roaring back, heralded by designers like Darryl K, Katayone Adeli & Helmut Lang. Do you remember that moment when it was all about sharply designed pants in stove pipes, bell bottoms and flares? And pleats disappeared and it all at once became about the flat front low slung trouser?
I just had a blast back at my old home Fox News Good Day LA chatting all things fashion for the 2016 Emmy Awards. Loved working with the outrageous Emily Loftiss! She was fun! Our producer Michelle goes “I knew you’d be great together! She’s the White, female you!” Click the link here and tell me what you think!
At the end of my latest video with Midnight Velvet about Gauchos I say “Girl get your gauchos on!” and I mean it. Gaucho, culottes, split skirts or whatever you want to call them, this cropped wide legged pant is one of Fall 2016’s hottest trends. I love gauchos because they are a modern update to pants and let’s face it, they are fun!
In Midnight Velvet’s Red Trench Video, I say “Don’t cover up your style, amplify it!” I love that! Just because the temperatures cool doesn’t mean you get to slack on your style! One of the reasons why a coat is so important is you’re going to wear it constantly. Your coat is the piece you go to over and over again. Day after day, week after week, your coat needs to be practical but inspiring! It needs to be something you want to wear.
Work. We spend the majority of our lives putting in work. Whether it’s our careers, relationships or our families, it’s all work. Now I hate working. I’d rather stay in bed all day watching re-runs of “Empire” and eating chips. But I realize that I like nice things, (my shopping addiction is LEGENDARY) and bills must be paid. So I gotta go to work. I also need to work off those chips so I gotta put in work at the gym too. Life = work.
I know what you’re thinking: “Must Haves! Must Haves? Who are you to tell me what I MUST HAVE?” For the past few years I have been working with Midnight Velvet and speaking to you, our customers and friends, about fashion. It’s been a blast becoming “Marcellas Reynolds, your personal stylist.” It’s a role I cherish.
