Ashlee Simpson wasn’t the only one donning skinny black denim with high top sneakers at her son’s birthday party. Nicole Richie was also sporting the look. She wore her favorite Ksubi Spray On jeans in Dark Night with a pair of studded chucks and a Givenchy hoodie to attend the party with daughter Harlow in Studio City, California.
This look is casual, but there is something about Nicole’s aura that makes it very chic. It’s also a look that can easily go from day to night in my opinion. By switching the Chucks to some ankle boots, I think, it’ll be ready for the evening. You can click here to purchase these at Ksubi for $179.95.
For this styling post I decided to choose the Ksubi Van Winkle jeans in Wild Dog (click here to purchase) for the men. I thought choosing black would be a great choice so I can add a print or different texture to the looks without it looking busy. For the two outfits, I went for casual looks for both Winter and Fall.
The first look, I’d say, is the Winter look. Each look revolves around the jeans, but when I saw these Opening Ceremony shoes I was trying to figure out how I can incorporate them into an outfit and still add different textures without it leaning towards a mess. The only option I could think of was to keep it monochrome. I didn’t want to pair the jeans with just a plain t shirt as I wanted to break up all of the black, so I chose this Tailgate Clothing Co. t shirt. To add some interesting detail without going overboard, I chose this Alexander McQueen coat as the combo of the leather and wool, I find, plays really well with the jeans and shoes.
For the Fall look, I wanted it to be casual and still be a look that you don’t have to change out of if you decide to go out for a dinner. I also didn’t want the look to be monochrome, like the previous. I paired the jeans with a J. Crew cardigan, Tailgate Clothing Co. t shirt, and some Opening Ceremony Desert Boots. The boots and cardigan together help smarten the look up, but being that it is a cardigan, you would still look comfortable. Like always you can click the names of each item to purchase them for yourself.
Liev Schreiber was spotted playing with his children at the park in New York. He wore a pair of Ksubi Gee Gee in Raw Rinse as he spun one of his sons around. I think these jeans are an amazing fit of Liev. I don’t think I have seen a better fitting pair on him. They are slim, but they have a great slouch throughout the leg.
I am happy to get a male sighting of Ksubi out. It is rare to get a sighting of Ksubi in general, but seeing a man in a pair is a lot more rare. You can click here to purchase Ksubi from their website.
The camouflage trend has been trickling in little by little the past couple of seasons, but this season it is hitting full force. Just because they are a print, it doesn’t mean they are lacking in details either. Brands such as Textile Elizabeth and James and Current/Elliott have incorporated zippers while April, May included seaming details. If you are looking for just a classic skinny in the print, they also have that.
The cool thing about this trend is that it is not limited to just jeans. Current/Elliott has also released their Biker Jacket in a denim camo that you can pair with any of your lightweight dress or even some jeans for the double denim look. There is also no limitation when it comes to color. Along with the classic fatigue green, brands such as Zara and Textile Elizabeth and James have also come out with pairs in blue as well as black and white. Which one’s do you fancy the most? You can see all of the styles and where to buy them below.
