Levi’s have put together some holiday styling tips directly from their VP of women’s design, Janine Chilton-Faust. They show you how to wear their favourite trends and what looks good. Also look out for an exclusive interview with Levi’s stylist coming to DenimBlog soon. You can buy all of these styles at Levi.com
Jean leggings or “jeggings” – A tighter version of the skinny jean made with super stretch denim. The jegging should be worn with long tops, dresses, wide crop shapes with a camisole, or sweater tunics. It is a great new modern look for holiday.
PAIR WITH: Balloon sleeve tunic sweater and ankle boots.
Boyfriend Jeans – A counterpoint to the jegging, the “boyfriend jean” offers a more relaxed, stylized fit. Wear with a sheer blousy, feminine top and a pretty, shiny belt to create a relaxed feminine boyfriend look.
PAIR WITH: Fitted cropped jacket and sexy heels
Skinny Flare – Remember to keep it slim on top with the skinny flare jean that has a kicked-out curve at the ankle. A very modern silhouette that helps elongate legs, the skinny flare can be worn with a variety of tops, including soft knits that drape.
PAIR WITH: belted patterned tunic and a pair of heels
Black or Dark denim – Dark denim and black is the perfect choice for any dressy occasion and goes with about anything. Black on black is a classic style or you can add a pop of color or shine through tops and accessories.
PAIR WITH: a sexy easy tee and a moto style jacket
