Yves Saint Laurent
You can’t deny that neon is the biggest thing for Spring. There are many brightly hued pieces that will suit everyone’s personal preference. One store that has many pieces that will suit anyone’s taste is SSENSE. They asked us to style a pair of yellow Balmain jeans from the Spring collection and this is what I came up with.
I was getting a Ska/Tribal vibe from the jeans, so that is the route I decided to take. In a more feminine way of course. I paired them with an Alexander Wang Open Back White Silk Shirt, Dannijo Karmen Necklace, YSL belt (men’s), a Maison Margiela Ring (men’s), and the Theyskens’ Theory Black Aven Edison Heels. I kept everything neutral so the focus won’t get taken away from the jeans.
This isn’t the only neon piece from SSENSE. They also have accessories and shoes that you can see below, which all come in bright shades. You can get each item above by clicking the links to purchase at ssense.com.
SSENSE is a DenimBlog sponsor/supporter.
Back in January, I was invited to the Luisaviroma bloggers event ‘Firenze4Eva’ in Florence, Italy. Since it was all the way in Italy though, I was unable to attend unfortunately, but we decided to do the style lab a little differently this time! Usually at the Firenze4Eva events, bloggers get to choose some outfits from the new collections and either style them on themselves or on a model which Luisaviaroma provide. For this one, we decided that I would choose an outfit online from their website and they would mail the clothes to me, then I would put the outfit together and shoot the photos that way, then send them back. I think it worked quite well!
I chose a pair of Dsquared Super Slim washed jeans, which I paired with an American Retro cropped sleeve Crepe shirt in Fuchsia and a pair of Yves Saint Laurent 140mm Palais Suede Peep Toe Pumps in Marine.
Obviously it wasn’t mandatory to choose jeans, but being part of DenimBlog, it only makes sense to! This was actually my first time trying Dsquared jeans and they fit really nicely, I love all the little details on them, especially the ankle zips and the imitation double back pockets and obviously the wash. They are really pretty jeans! The American Retro shirt is also something that I wouldn’t usually choose, but I was very much attracted to it! The size Small ended up being really large, so I had to use my own belt to hold it in at the waist, which gave a better silhouette.
Now, the YSL shoes! I had never tried them before, but I definitely always wanted to! They were a lot more comfortable and pretty in person than I expected. Plus, the Marine colour is such a beautiful shade! I loved it! I only wore them to stand for these photos as I took my own flats to the location, but they definitely felt comfortable, which makes a change from the usual painful Christian Louboutin heels that I have worn in the past.
So this is the outfit that I chose and put together for the Luisaviaroma styling session. What do you think of it? Comment and let me know! Choosing the entire outfit online was a little tricky as I wasn’t sure how everything would fit or how it would look all together in person, but I am quite happy with the outcome.
