Here is another styling post featuring the Textile Elizabeth and James Debbie jeans in Destroyed Midnight. I decided to go three different routes for this post: Winter, Casual, and Dressy to show the versatility of the jeans and prove that it is possible to go all three routes with a pair of ripped jeans.
I know that it is still pretty warm out, but I thought it’ll be nice to feature one look that will work for the colder seasons. I paired the jeans with a Just Female Wool Coat, Jeffery Campbell Taro boots, and Textile Elizabeth and James Fairfax T Shirt. By keeping the look monochromatic, I decided to go more out there with the different textures and details like the wool and fringe. The jacket and boots easily dresses up what would otherwise be a basic black look with the shape and detailing.
This is the more casual look out of the three, one that I think many girls wear day-to-day. I paired the jeans with the Textile Elizabeth and James Kelsey Parka, R13 t shirt, Diesel belt, bracelets by Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry and FELIKS+ADRIK, and Isabel Marant Betty sneakers. You cannot get more casual and still look great from wearing a look like this. All the colors work well together and the different fabrics in the shoes and belt help add some more “oomph” the look. I find adding a belt to an outfit really makes a look pull together. It helps break up an outfit (a monochromatic one especially) and really pulls everything together. They are a great way to add a unique detail without going all out.
Now for the dressier look. I thought dressing up a pair of distressed jeans would be a great idea being that you don’t see it too often. I paired the jeans with a Helmut Lang shirt, Dannijo necklace, and Givenchy heels. I think this outfit will look great if these jeans fit you more cropped. If not, folding the jeans inside to mid-ankle will fix that problem for you. A clean line in the jeans will really help this look because of the neckline of the shirt. As if the shirt didn’t dress the look up enough, I decided to add the necklace to clean up the style of the jeans even further. Adding a simple pair of heels with subtle detailing is the only thing this look needs to finish it off.
