Flowy




PacSun tank / Zara pants, Kenneth Cole sandals (similar)/ Celine sunglasses / Reed Krakoff purse

Oversized, wide-leg trousers are a great staple to have this Fall season! These floor-grazing pants are lightweight, stylish, and super comfortable to wear.  I teamed my striped Zara pants with a laced L.A. Hearts tank from PacSun!  For accessories, I added Celine sunglasses, a Reed Krakoff shoulder bag, and Kenneth Cole slides.
