I wanted to choose a pair of classic blue jeans for this styling post. So why not choose a pair by one of the most iconic denim brands, 7 For All Mankind? I chose their Skinny in Aggressive Siren to be styled three different ways, ranging from the usual casual to something more classic. See the looks below.
My first thought when I was styling this look is that I wanted to work with different lengths. This is a dress (also by Sevens), but I think it works just as well as a shirt for the look that I was going for here. I always love the breezy feel of pairing a long tunic that hits mid-thigh with a skinny pair of pants and ankle boots.
This look is perfectly fine without the blazer, but I feel the addition of this Saint Laurent jacket keeps the look smarter because of the slim shape. When I was choosing a shoe to pair with these I instantly thought of something graphic and bold that wouldn’t take away from the look and enhances the overall feel. So there was no other choice than these Chanel boots from the Spring 2012 collection. What is great about this look is that it would work on girls of different heights.
The outfit would look just as great if the jeans are cropped for someone taller or cuffed for someone on the shorter side. That is always an idea when I do these posts, something that works on various body types.
This is another one of those looks that works for various heights and shapes. I wanted something simple, easy, and with structure. The red leather jacket from Zara creates a statement while adding structure. With the jacket being so bold, and even stronger when paired with these jeans, I wanted to keep everything else minimal. This Helmut Lang t shirt has a nice drape to it and grey t shirts go with every color under the sun. The Marant boots add more ease to the feel and adds a bit more femininity to the overall look. Then to give it a more casual feel, I chose to finish off the look with this Rick Owens beanie.
This is a look that was inspired by the women of Paris. The way they just throw on a statement jacket over classic pieces is always inspiring to me. For the statement piece I chose a jacket by Etro. The backdrop to the jacket is a classic white t shirt by James Perse and the Rag & Bone Newbury boots. To round out the overall boho feel, I wanted to choose a braided belt. It’s an accessory that gives a casual statement of its own.
