To give you a taste of what is in the store, check out some of the pieces I had a blast styling for fall. I adore this fabulous black and white boho chic dress that is appropriate for both mothers and daughters alike. Given the classic pattern on the dress, it is easy to take from day to night with a simple change in accessories.

dressing your man :: part 2

Fall/Winter StyleJenniferComment

Let's continue with part two of our men's series today by welcoming back our men's style expert and friend, Jen Brinsmade of J. Hilburn Men's Clothier, as we tackle a key wardrobe essential for every man's overall appearance :: the perfect fitting pant. {If you missed our last men's style post on the proper fit of shirts, click here.} Since every manufacturer is different, it can be tiresome and time-consuming to find the right style for your man.  Your best bet is to consider the three most important elements of proper pant fit :: rise, pant length/break and seat fit.

Rise :: is the measurement from the crotch seam to the top of the waistband. Comfort and proportion will be mostly determined by rise so trying on a few styles will help your guy determine what works best for his body type.

  • Low-rise pants sit on or below the hips a few inches below the navel. Best for men with shorter torsos.
  • Mid-rise pants sit at the hips or slightly above and close to the navel. A great option for nearly all body types.
  • High-rise pants sit on the true waist hitting the navel or completely covering it. Best for tall guys, over 6 feet tall.

Pant Length/Break :: is where the pants fall on the shoes creating a horizontal crease in the fabric across the front of the pant leg.

  • Medium break is a timeless, classic look for all men’s dress pants. Pants should hit midway between the top of the shoe and the top of the shoe sole. This break is best for men who want a put together, professional look.

Flat Front Medium Break Trousers :: Nordstrom

  • Full break offers a modern look for the working man. Pants should hit right on top of the shoe sole. The fuller break is something to consider for the taller man since it provides additional length that men with longer legs require to prevent the pants from appearing too short.

Double Pleated Full Break Trousers :: Nordstrom

  • Short break denotes high fashion with little to no crease in the pant leg creating a precise, tailored look. This break hits just below the top of the shoe. Men with slim torsos and a 32” waist or smaller are ideal candidates for these pants; however, if your guy is looking to make a bold statement regardless of his body type, this is a fun alternative.

The Ideal Pant Short break : J. Hilburn

Seat :: is known as the back of the trousers revealing a smooth drape over the shape of the rear end. Proper fit will lie nicely against his body without pulling tight against the bottom or draping too loosely down the thighs {i.e. "saggy butt}.

Hope these styling tips are helpful as you seek out the best pair of pants for your man!

PS :: If your man struggles with off-the-shelf options and you are local to the Austin area, consider scheduling an appointment with Jen Brinsmade, who specializes in measuring for custom trousers where waist, length and seat are all taken into consideration.

Navy and white. You just can't go wrong with this classically "summer" color combination. Adding gold accents via shoes and/or jewelry and something striped is an easy way to play up a simple navy-and-white outfit. No other colors necessary!

Here I am taking this color scheme in a very nautical direction {a clear favorite summer trend of the Edit team!}, with a go-to navy sundress, rope belt and a new favorite tote by Barrington Gifts!
