my new uniform


As some stylist friends and I chatted away at a party the other night, we noticed that we were all wearing high-waisted wide leg jeans and button down-blouses. Call it coincidence--or the new chic uniform. It's easy dressing and yet manages to do the impossible: look both timelessly classic and right this minute. What you'll need to pull off this everyday-worthy outfit are flattering, versatile jeans such as these from Diane Von Furstenberg, Rag & Bone, Frame Denim, Madewell, Point Sur and H&M, along with instantly-polishing blouses like this Elle Sasson, this Joe Fresh, this Stella McCartney, this Haute Hippie, this Theory and this Equipment

How about length and shoes? I live in sunny socal as well and i want to wear them with flip flops -- but i think i need to pull these off with some casual wedges. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

I actually have several pairs of these jeans, some of them are shorter and sandal-ready length (they graze the top of my feet) and others that are longer, just shy of reaching the floor, so I can wear with heels.

I strongly suspect that gorgeous blouse is a Chanel. J'adore!
