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?
The bleached/tie-dye denim look has made a resurgence this season. Brands like Textile Elizabeth and James, Barbara Bui, Joe’s Jeans and more have all come out with their own interpretation in various colors.
The great thing about this turn around on the trend is that it is not just limited to jeans. You can see that Textile has come out with their Western Shirt with bleached detailing that they are calling Cloudy. You can click inside to see all the styles from these along with others that are starting to pop up in stores right now.
I love this pair of jeans! I think a lot of times aged washes can look too manufactured or processed so they don’t look natural. However, the wash on these is great, they look like they’ve been broken in over the course of time and look as though they’re really comfortable. You can buy these jeans from Shopbop.com for $169.00.
I noticed that we haven’t used leather in our “Weekend Looks” yet and being that it is one of the biggest trends right now, I thought it would be a great choice this week. I chose the Joe’s Leather Pants in Fiery Red because I just love the color; it is bold and makes a statement, but is still able to be styled in numerous ways.
For this look I decided to go smart by pairing them with a Joseph blazer, James Perse t shirt, and Balmain boots. For that little flare and added edge, I accessorized the look with a Reed Krakoff cuff and Jimmy Choo studded belt. I find adding the hints of metal to this look helps keep it fun without taking it too far. What do you guys think of this look?
