Harem pants are everywhere and at every price, from high end designer to Eileen Fisher to Old Navy. Here are our favorites. Wear them with a fitted or blousey top.
Every season I find I need tops more than bottoms Basic tops for layering and cardigans to update skirts or pants in my wardrobe seem to be what I need most. A good well fitting bra is a must and no panty lines are equally important. It also tends to be the time to update your stockings. You may need another pair of skinny pants.

I love these cashmere tee shirts. They come in a large assortment of colors. On sale now. Do not miss out. The perfect basic.
$28.00 I usually have to replace these tights every season, but they do last a whole season. They come in a variety of colors.
$229.00 J Brand
The J Brand high rise Maria pant has become very popular. There is no muffin top and we like the new coated look.
$32.00 I need to have a black and nude color as a staple in my closet.
$45.00 from Wolford. While these are a little pricey, they are shearer than Spanx and they last a long time.
$72.00 from Spanx. While I have not tested this, you can't go wrong with a waist shaping thong.
There are some fabulous, well priced booties on the web right now. Rag and Bone boots stand out. Finally, there are some really cute boots with a lower heel.
The waterfall cardigan is here to stay. It is very flattering and can be belted to show your waist. We are seeing a lot of print pants. Wear them with simplicity. The bootie is a major trend. You must have this in your wardrobe. There are great booties in all sorts of prices so if you can't afford the expensive pair, you will be able to find a great match at a low price. Dress up your look with a scarf-it is a very reasonable way to create a new look.

This boot has a good wide heel and it is not too high. It will work with anything! I want this in my closet!
A scarf will make an outfit work. Look for them on sale if you can. If you know you will wear it endlessly, buy it at full price.
$268.00 Eileen Fisher.
These ponte pants have a leather inset on the side.
A nice update to the basic black slim pant/legging.
I like the simplicity of these bootie's and the price is right.
This is 20% off for a short while. It is a beautiful handbag.

You need to like a print to buy it. This is a pant I would wear.
I wish I could tell you what this normally costs but I can't. It is from Yoox and it means it is a bargin and it is gorgeous!
Boots are an investment. You want to be able to wear them until they fall apart. I bought a pair of 50/50 Stuart Weitzman boots about 6 years ago-way before they were in style. They fell apart last winter so I am now looking for a replacement. I want a basic black boot that I can wear with skinny pants or a dress or skirt. There are many options that do and do not fit my profile, so lets looks at the options. These are a few and more to follow in other blogs.

These boots are just what I want but they do not have a zipper which may be a problem because of my high instep.
$695.00 Loefller Randall
Loefler Randall has made this boot for a few years now and it sells. No zipper so that may be a drawback, but it has a fashionable low heel.
| |$750.00 Stuart Weitzman
These are high on my list. I personally will go for Chloe or Prada over Stuart Weitzman, but these have a true 'high end designer' look. The squarish toe, low heel and the beautiful simplicity make this a fabulous boot. Wear it with a skinny jean, skirt or a dress and you are going to look right on! The price is high but this has value compared Prada or Chloe at a higher price.

I really like this look but it is not as classic so maybe not as versatile. I would wear this with jeans and a dress.
This is more pricey than the usual Frye boot. I guess their prices have risen. It's a beautiful boot, one you can wear with anything!
