Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by a brand you thought wasn’t for you? This recently happened to me when my mom gave me pair of St. John pants she had accidentally ordered in the wrong size. I’d always thought of St. John for their classic knitwear pieces and didn’t know they made trendier pieces like these skinny, cropped pants. I have to say these fit like a dream! I’d never really thought of white pants being an “investment piece,” but these are so flattering I can see why they’re worth the higher price tag. It’s easy to forget, but oftentimes the tried and true luxury brands are the ones to go to for high quality basics that last forever. What brands have you been pleasantly surprised by lately?
