LOVE: Skinny jeans tucked into booties with a slimming blazer  


katie armour: the neo-traditionalist


This defines chic yet saucy to me. It's sexy, but powerful, and seems to transition easily from day to night.


LOATHE: Drop-Crotch Pants




Is your goal to look like you have a front bum goiter? Or is your pant in tribute to Toulouse-Lautrec whose legs stopped growing at age 13 but upper body did not, because that's what you look like. Gentleman stop flattering yourselves, there's no way your inseam requires that much room. And ladies the whole Aladdin look died in 1992. This isn't a whole new world, carpets can't fly, and Robin Williams hasn't been funny since Good Morning, Vietnam. Kindly give Jasmine her pants back.
