I've often wondered what Christina Hendricks wore in her down time. Those famous curves might pour easily into an ankle length evening gown, but casual clothes are not as flattering. How to get the right mix of street cred with womanly style?
She's done it perfectly.
A pair of skin-tight skinny jeans (they are still the most flattering shape, even if you're bigger than Christina, because they follow the line of your body and don't create bulk where you don't want it!) but instead of wearing with a fitted top (big no-no), she pairs them with a denim shirt - not oversized, just skimming the body perfectly - and a pair of kitten heels for some much needed lift. Not into kitten heels? I have found my perfect day shoe in the mini-wedge. It gives me height (hallelujah!) while being comfortable enough to walk for miles. My wedge trainers are my current favourite but now the sun's out I can probably switch to my Miu Miu's any day now.
A variation on this simple look would be a pastel coloured sweater, Jac + Jack make some beautiful ones, with pastel coloured jeans. Then you can zing into spring in style.
