For my styling post this week, I chose the Citizens of Humanity Avedon Skinny in Axel for my weekend look. They are a clean pair with a great fit and are pitch black, the darkest that I have owned. I would say that the color palette of this look was inspired by the mood the cloudy weather has been making me feel. I have always been a fan of layered looks that look like you just threw everything on and can easily pair any bag with, whether it be a satchel or backpack.
I paired the jeans with an R13 leather vest, Saint Laurent belt, Brian Lichtenberg sweater and a pair of Nike Dunks. With every piece being virtually black, I wanted to break it up a bit with the silver in the belt and the blues in the shoes. When I thought of this outfit, I had the casual “borrowed boyfriend” vibe in mind. The juxtaposition of wearing the sweater slouchy and vest oversized with the fitted jeans helps keep the look tough without sacrificing a feminine feel. How many of you girls would wear a look like this?
The denim jacket has become a staple in many guys closet since it had its resurgence a few years back. Whatever you wear a blazer with, you can easily switch it out for a denim jacket. Pair it with a button up, tie and trousers for a more fun look or more casually by pairing it with another piece of denim.
Here is a look at the first part of the new Cult of Individuality Spring/Summer 2013 campaign. The theme for this, as you can see, is classic laid-back surfers. Ones that believe in having a fun time without excess and feeling as free as possible.
The styles this season are really great. I find the washes to have a nice worn look without looking overdone. The hints of washed out colors are great as we don’t see those kinds of washes for men. What are your thoughts on this collection?
Mary-Kate has taken the custom aspect of these jeans a bit further by wearing out the knees of the jeans. When I first saw these jeans I was always interested in seeing how she would wear them out. She is known to have the jeans naturally distress on their own in such a great way, in my opinion. What do you think of how these jeans look now compared to how they did a couple of years ago?
