It’s been a while since I styled a pair of jeans for the men. For this post I chose the Joe’s Brixton in King because they are a classic blue wash and a fit that are favored by many men already. Being that it is Winter, I wanted to keep everything monochromatic. I chose a navy color scheme instead of the usual black and grey that is seen often, but there is a hint of color in the second look. See both looks below.
This is probably the equivalent to the all black look, but in navy. I also wanted to play around with denim quite a bit and up’d the denim factor by making it a triple denim look. I paired the jeans with a Diesel Black Gold shirt, Diesel Belt, Vintage Shoe Company boots, Jean.Machine jacket, and Rag & Bone cardigan. To keep the look from looking one note and a bit depressing, I added a brown belt and boots to break up all the dark blue.
I added a bit of color to this look with the Henrik Vibskov sweater, but the navy color scheme is still present throughout. The jeans are styled with the same boots as above and a coat by Lardini. I always say a look with a coat is only as good as what is underneath. You are not going to wear a coat all day, so you need something that will still make you look great without it. I find this sweater does just that when it is paired with a simple pair of jeans.
So how many of you are going to choose navy over the usual blacks and greys this season?
Ashley Olsen was spotted bundled up while walking her friend’s dog through the West Village in New York. The designer wore a pair of Textile Elizabeth and James Johnny Jeans in Onyx with a sweater from The Row’s 2013 Resort collection over a coat and Balenciaga boots. Ashley finished off her layered look with the amazing backpack and purse, both from The Row.
I love that Ashley is constantly being caught in Textile recently. There are so many styles that I think will look so cool on her, especially the Davis. Those are next on my want list from the brand. I love how zipper obsessed they have been the past few seasons. You can click here to purchase Textile from Shopbop.
Hayden Panettiere was spotted at both the DirectTV and GQ events for the Super Bowl in New Orleans, Louisiana. For both, the Nashville star wore a pair of the J Brand Leather Leggings in Noir with a white blazer and neon pumps.
I think this is a great look on Hayden, but I find it to age her quite a bit. The shape of the jacket and the color of the shoes together is what I find off-putting. I think a slimmer black jacket with just a simple camisole under and neutral pumps would have been more age appropriate and fun. What are your thoughts on this look?
