#OOTD: Camo Pants | Styled 2 Ways

20 Jun

When you work with a bunch of fashionable girls who like to snap things up at the store the second they arrive, there are a lot of times where we come to work in the same items! This was the case the other day with Christina and Hallie who both recently purchased the Current/Elliott Drawstring Lounge Trousers in the camo print. Because we all clearly have such different style this was the perfect opportunity to show how to wear these pants 2 different ways!

Christina (pictured on the left) paired her pants with a navy tee tucked in. We’ve officially decided that we are loving the Navy/Camo combo she’s got going on here. What a great way to jazz up a very classic color! Christina completed her look with her favorite pair of TKEES in Cocobutter.

Hallie (pictured on the right) combined a few trends into one outfit. She paired her pants with a “trend of the minute” racer back crop top and a pair of strappy metallic sandals. Birkenstocks (another trend of the minute) would be super cute with this look too!

Both girls kept their jewelry simple – just a few Bourbon & Boweties bangles and sunnies of course!!

A couple of other tips:

  • Keep the top simple when you are wearing a print pant. Solids work best but if you are a risk taker/trend setter an easy print would work here too!
  • Make sure to balance out your look – if the pant is slouchy you want something a little sleeker on top.
  • Choose the correct shoes! Flip flops and flat sandals always work well and cute strappy wedges will dress up the look for evening.

Steal This Look ~ North West’s Mama

Steal This Look: Kimmy K

We have to be honest. We kind of miss Kim Kardashian. The new mom has been in hiding since the June 15th birth of her and Kanye West’s daughter, North West. Sure, they named their child after an airline, but we still can’t deny that even though Kim had a few misses in the early stages of her pregnancy, she definitely has set some trends for both expectant mothers and Kardashian fans around the world.

This week, we took a look from the Kardashian archive. Kim has never been shy about showing off her killer curves, and regardless of how you feel about the family empire, you cannot deny that they have mastered their signature style and never disappoint with their outfit creations.

To mimic Kim’s daytime look, we chose one of the newest additions to Rapunzel’s Closet. With our latest shipment of Keepsake came the What You Got Peplum top. This white, figure hugging piece is perfect for many body types and can be worn during any season. For the bottoms, we chose the new Current/Elliott Ankle Skinny with Studs. These pants are a favorite among all of the Rapunzel girls and we are looking forward to continuing to style them in various ways when Fall comes around!

To add some color to this black and white construction, we added the CC Design Heart Necklace in hot pink. Feeling stressed after a night out with Kanye West? Light one of our XIEA Heart Candles and relax. Never underestimate the power of a lit candle!

So come visit us at Rapunzel’s Closet and make your own “Kardashian Kreation!” Come on, you know you want to!

Spotlight Item ~ Sarah

Spotlight Item: Sarah

If you haven’t already noticed, each one of the Rapunzel girls has their own, individual style. Sarah’s style tends to lean more toward the rocker cool style, with a little flower-child mixed in. You won’t catch Sarah in anything too girly…don’t even talk to her about pink. So it’s no surprise that Sarah picked Current/Elliott’s  “The Freshman” Leopard Tee as her Spotlight Item.

“I love the print and also the fact that the leopard isn’t too bold or overstated. The washed look is probably my favorite part. There’s nothing better than throwing on a new top that feels like it’s been your favorite shirt for years. I’d probably wear it with some skinnies and combat boots, then add a funky bright necklace.”-Sarah

Come in and pick out your Spotlight Item and see what it says about you!

What’s a Curvier Girl To Do?

The Right Jean Fit for that Curvier Body!

Working in an office full of beautiful girls, none of whom are above a size 28 jean, it can sometimes be hard (or intimidating!) to get advice on the right fit for my size 30/31 figure. But after 3 ½ years of trying on the great selection of jeans, from 1921 Jeans to William Rast, that we carry at Rapunzel’s, I must say that I’ve finally settled on the brands and styles that most complement my body and that fit my varying style moods. For starters, my day-in, day-out absolute fav is Paige Jeans. The Hollywood Hills Bootcut style in a medium paige2or dark wash works perfectly with pretty much anything. For a casual day look, I pair mine with a simple LNA tee, a little cardigan like the Juicy Couture Striped Cardi and some easy flats like the Dolce Vita Devas. What I love about this cut is that the Hollywood Hills come up a little higher than the Laurel Canyon style which is great for avoiding the dreaded “muffin top” affect. Something to remember however, Paige Jeans run a bit small (particularly in the darker washes) and many of us have to go up a size. The fit is so great it’s well worth the bump to the morale though! Plus, Paige Gellar, who started Paige Jeans four years ago, was a long time fit model for almost all the major jean labels out there today, so she really knows a thing or two about how a jean should fit. Her struggle and subsequent recovery from an eating disorder has made her a role model for embracing your inner beauty and her line reflects her desire to create jeans for every”body.”img_50902

 I think it’s a myth that curvier girls can’t wear skinny jeans. It’s really about finding a good fit, balancing out the proportions with the right top and having the confidence to pull it all off! My staple skinny jeans are the 7 for All Mankind Roxanne jeans in the New York Dark Wash. These jeans are super stretchy and their 13″ leg opening is skinny enough to stuff into boots but still wide enough to look good with a pair of ballerina slippers. (Or try the similar Edie style which has an extra 1″ at the leg opening!) The only downside to these jeans is their lower rise which sometimes shows off a little too much of my Hanky Pankies (!) but that’s easily remedied by wearing longer tops. And the right type of top is something like the Joie Alicia tank, which has a looser fit and looks great either loosely tucked in or left out and flowy with. A fun Love Quotes Scarf adds a punch of color and this outfit (paired with some heels) easily moves from day to night!

My latest pick is the very fashion forward (thank you Katie Holmes!) Current/Elliot boyfriend jeans. It’s about time that the loose, holey, completely worn out jeans that I want to throw on everyday can now be dressed up and worn right into the office (okay, okay, only if you have a job in an equally fashion forward office!) And how great img_50704is it that my usual size 30 self can go down to a 29 and know that I could even fit the 28 if I really wanted to? Love it! I find myself wearing these most with gladiator sandals like the Sam Edelman Ginnies, and some girlie top like his 7 for All Mankind Epaulette blouse. The real trick to pulling off these jeans is to remember that they are essentially supposed to be your boyfriend’s jeans and you need to counterbalance their boyish fit with your more feminine accessories (a little lace top, a great pair of heels, etc.) They do run big and they are supposed to be baggy, so be sure pair them with tops that are a little more fitted and shoes that aren’t too heavy looking!

 At the end of the day, there’s nothing more unflattering than jeans that don’t fit properly. Keep in mind that chances are good that you are different jean sizes in different styles/brands, so don’t get caught up sticking to one size. With all the great options out there, there really is no excuse for not finding something fabulous that will work with your unique body type and particular fashion sensibility!
