Ulla-Pants Give-away!

Pants emit a very sexy, slightly masculine, wholly durable sensibility. They are reflective of the demeanor of a strong and stylish woman. Frida Giannini

Ulla Popken will give away a pair of pants, listed below, to the first ten customers who comment here, on our blog. All we ask is that you send a corresponding email to me ( with your selection, size, and mailing address and agree to submit a review of the product within 30 days.

Pants are a highly personal part of developing a wardrobe that really works. That is why I often suggest that my clients start with bottoms and then work their way up in developing outfits. Personally, I look for sleek, elongating comfort in pants.

Five Ulla Styles – Which ones are right for you?

  • Feel soft and pretty…

and reduce visual weight with our Drawstring Hem Capri (12831)

  • Elongate your silhouette…

with a straight shape (pair with tonal footwear) such as our

Matte Jersey Straight Leg Pants (02635)

  • Look lean and well-tailored…

and forget about wrinkles with our Essential Pencil Leg Pants (64822)

  • Seek comfort and sophistication…

and get a flattering drape with our Wide-leg Stretch Knits Pants (91624)

  • Channel strong and stylish…

and balance full hips with our boot-cut Jeans (regular wash available) (11841)

I’d love to hear what you look for in pants and if you agree or disagree with the Giannini quote (above) or how you’d tweak it!


Feel good in what you wear!

Warm-Weatherize with Color

The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you! Coco Chanel

Pick a fresh, fabulous color! I love lavender and shades of cool-lavender love me. Here’s a three-point test.

  • When you walk into a room or peruse rich colors in clothing, what color pops out and makes you happy?
  • In natural daylight, examine the area beneath your eyes. If it’s deep blue or purple, choose cool tones. If it’s yellow, green or brown, choose warm tones.
  • Bring an item of that color, in a cool or warm tone close to your face, if your face lights up and imperfections seem to fade, it’s your color!

Warm tones tend to include reds, pinks, and oranges. Cool tones include blues, greens, and purples. Choose coordinated items, head to toe, for a pulled-together, polished look. Here's a cool-tone collection I've put together for myself.

Be colorful and enjoy! How do you bring color into your wardrobe?
