Really good news: super wide legged shorts—seen on aforementioned Walker, Phillip Lim, Zero + Maria Cornejo, to name a few—make even Rigatoni legs look like penne legs. It’s the divooon iloooosian of fashion!

A good styling idea to do on the cheap courtesy of The Row—wear your Chinatown house mules (you do wear these around the flat, right?) out with your suits. Now when we rush to the store for milk before work and my son says, “Mom, you forgot to change your laundry shoes,” I can say, “I meant to!”

Fact: It is a sign that you are extremely elegant —and not on the market— or so beautiful it doesn’t matter, if you dare wear a turtleneck to a black tie under the age of 55.

Some pants you will need this Fall (or sooner thanks to ridiculous, confusing fashion pace)

#1 & #2: The Long Risers ((I refuse to use the horrid phrase “drop crotch”)
