The Drop Crotch Trend

An odd trend I have been noticing a lot lately is... the drop crotch. I accidentally bought a few pairs and must admit I am loving them. I will be making a post on different ways to wear them soon.

So here are some street style shots from The Sartorialist and Face Hunter. I love to compare the translation from runway to street style.

Face Hunter :

Dior Homme Fall 2007

3.1 Philip Lim Spring 2008

I think the key to wearing these pants is confidence. Look at every individuals attitude in the above pictures. They are confident and owning the look.

Get your own:

$ 235.00 Oak NYC
twisted seam and drop crotch. I would love to see these on someone!

Lux Knit Convertible Harem Pant $58.00

Other suggestions from urban outfitters:

Lux Knit Ankle Harem Pant $38.00

Lux Cord Drawstring Pant $34.99 Was $48.00

Moncler and Junya Watanabe Fall/Winter 2007

Moncler, a winter apparel company, has once again joined forces with Comme des Garçons designer Junya Watanabe to produce these special edition down jackets.

This quilted down blazer has got to be my favorite but here are some more I liked from the collection.

Cold fronts, Fingerless Gloves, Tea

The weather is so nice right now.

I happen to think people dress nicer in the fall.
Here are some friends and I at school.

I love Brian's Brooches?
His t shirt is a plain Hanes V neck. I think every guy should have about 50 of those. And he's rocking the classic Vans Chukka.

Kounthear is so happy for cold weather. As is, Kevin...

See the skirt Kevin is wearing?

I wore it as a shirt on the same day... unplanned.

Cold Weather Boot Options

This isn't necessarily a problem for me but I know it is hard to find nice cold weather boots. I searched through Zappos and picked what I thought were stylish examples for most cold climates.

Jessica Bennett Grapple $ 213.95
I love these because they are versatile enough to wear with a dress and trench or skinny jeans and a leather bomber.
These boots are the solution to those days when you just need that extra something to spice up an old outfit. Not only will these keep you warm and dry but they will definitely command attention in any room.

Ugg Locarno $ 228.95
If you find it absolutely necessary to wear Uggs...At least let it be these. I like the idea of wearing these with anything silk and ruffly to contrast with the roughness of the boot.
