One piece three ways: discover how to style Elizabeth & James’s hero piece for work, dinner date and weekend
Words Joy Montgomery
Wardrobe hero alert: Elizabeth & James is the US-based brand set up by actresses, and long-standing fashion icons, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Their brand aesthetic is comprised of stylish separates in seriously luxe fabrics, offering chic staples for fashion discerning women.
For AW16 we’ve fallen head over heels for the brand’s satin-twill straight leg pants, which feature nods to both the military and athleisure trend, via the army-green hue and luxe interpretation of the classic track pant. This hero piece will slot perfectly into your winter capsule wardrobe and carry you from work to dinner to weekend with ease.
