When it comes to everyday attire, I definitely play favorites; when I find a piece I love I wear it ALL THE TIME. Unabashedly.
Over the past couple years, this has been the case with just about every piece I’ve ordered from AYR (their name literally stands for All Year Round, and it couldn’t be more fitting). This stuff is designed and constructed to be worn day-in and day-out, for months — and yes, years — at a time.
I think it’s safe to say I’ve worn their draped harem trousers more often than any other item in my life (except of course jewelry), and my latest acquisition — this perfect pair of distressed denim — is making a serious play for second place.
The Saturday they arrived, I wore them for a long bike ride around Miami Beach. I was inspired by the idea of being a tourist in this new part-time home of mine, and thus styled them as I felt a Miami tourist should: cat-eye glasses, tropical-print shirt, cross-body bag, blue jeans and white sneakers. Basically, this.
A couple days later I was headed back to New York City, pairing these new favorite jeans with a tailored jacket, vintage vest, and luxe tuxedo shirt, dressing them up for a day full of meetings. As the week wore on, I explored a few more variations, like lots of blue layers for a trip to The Upsider; and later, an equally well-worn leather jacket matched with striped shirt, nicked from my guy.
By the time Saturday came again, the love affair was officially hot and heavy. I spent the day hitting my favorite NYC flea markets and antique stores, bundling up in a striped scarf, draped cashmere, vintage tuxedo shirt, leopard boots and — of course — these bad boys. We’re sort of inseparable.
