kiD GQ on Washingtonian Magazine is featuring a great article which I had the opportunity to contribute to. Frugal Fashionisto - the first one ever for Washingtonian - is a column for the penny pincher within, providing great ways to incorporate trends straight from the runway without runway prices. This weeks Frugal Fashionisto is none other than 'yours truly'. The trend...straight-leg jeans and pants. The outcome...pure fashion heaven.

Here are some of the Frugal Fashionisto "Straight and Narrow" Highlights:

Jenkins loves the fashion-forward look of straight-leg pants and jeans. “Unlike boot-cut jeans, the straight-leg cut offers a closer fit and can easily be worn to showcase your ankles, which is a huge trend this summer,” he says. As for finding the best fit: “Buy straight legs so they gather a tad around the ankles and fit snug around the waist.” This season, he says, the look is worn best without socks.
Slim-fitting shirts best complement this silhouette, and accessorizing is easy, says Jenkins: “A great hat always tickles my buttons.”
