My Lucky Outfits

We all have them—clothes that make us just feel happy and seem to bring good fortune. Sure, dressing up can feel fun and fancy, but when it comes down to it, daily go-tos like denim are what support us sartorially when we need it most. And if we believe they bring great luck? Even better.

No one is more familiar with the need to up the style stakes from time to time than the editors who work at fashion magazines. With the downtown streets of Manhattan’s West Village as a backdrop, editors from ELLE and Esquire share their feel Lucky secrets and some of their favorite pieces of denim.

I always feel lucky when I’m wearing:

The Lucky High Rise Drew Mom Jean. The mom jean style is comfortable, so I can get stuff done but it also makes an outfit look so pulled together.

Last time I got really lucky: Finding my Brooklyn apartment—a true miracle! I still live here and love it.
