I got the assignment to style the looks for the winter months for both coasts (NY/LA) for the men. For both looks, I chose the Nudie Grim Tim in White Knee (buy here) to revolve my looks around. Although they are the same jeans, the looks are completely different and I think they embody both coasts perfectly.
For the New York/East Coast look, I played with color, texture, and of course major layering. The style in New York is also more smart and many times serious. By adding this bright red structured coat by Giuliano Fujiwara, I thought, would still keep the look clean but liven it up with the color. With the jacket being so bright, I wanted to keep everything minimal, with a denim shirt by Daniele Alessandrini, scarf by Horiyoshi the Third, hat by Brixton, belt by Rag & Bone, and loafers by Burberry. I find that the accessories also help pull the look together without having the outfit look too severe because it is never fun when you look serious.
In California, well Southern California to be honest, we don’t really understand cold compared to the rest of the country. We just incorporate in an additional layer such as a jacket (Topman) and/or scarf to our usual t shirt (Ksubi) and jeans looks. Even though the style usually does venture into the more casual side, I wanted to smarten it up with the Modern Vice Jodphur boots. I also find that the fit of these jeans suit more clean shoes such as loafers and boots compared to a pair of sneakers. Regardless of the title of the looks, these can be interchanged and worn on either coasts. It is just a matter of taste. So which of these do you prefer more?
I realized that we haven’t done a look revolving around a pair of boyfriend jeans. Since boyfriend jeans are just as stylish as skinny jeans these days, I thought it would be great to use them for my Going Out post this week.
I chose the Ksubi Boyfriend Jeans in Midnight and Dusted with a Helmut Lang blazer to smarten up the distressing of the jeans. To still keep it fresh and young, I chose a Boy London t shirt and to keep the look feminine, I added a Dannijo Harley necklace and Bottega Veneta sandals. I think adding a messy cuff to the jeans is all you need to finish this look to be ready for the night out.
Jennifer Garner was spotted doing some Christmas shopping at Barneys in Beverly Hills, California. The Butter star wore a pair of the new Rag & Bone Rally Cargo Pants in Army with some Chanel loafers.
I am a bit surprised to see Jennifer wear a pair of cargo pants. I shouldn’t be really because I remember seeing her wear a pair of another Rag & Bone cargo pants before. I prefer these on her more than the previous pair. I find the way she styled them here is more flattering than when she wore their Tank cargos.

Jessica Alba sure loves her printed Current/Elliott jeans. She has been spotted in just about every pair that they designed. For this day, the Machete actress wore a pair of the Stiletto in Plaid Pine to do some last minute Christmas shopping with daughter Haven.
I have been waiting to see more celebrities wear plaid jeans. I always found the look of them to be very cool. It is one of those that can either go preppy or punk depending on which color you get and how you style them. What are your thoughts on the print?
