I think denim skirts have gotten a bad rep, since most styles tend to be either mini or maxi lengths, which can be hard to wear or unflattering. I really liked the silhouette of this Christopher Kane x J Brand denim pencil skirt. The pencil shape is very fitted and meant to show off your figure, so I thought it’d be a fun piece to style for a weekend going out look.
Because of the fit and color of the skirt, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit sleek to keep the skirt the focal point. To contrast the slim fit, I chose this slouchy low cut Splendid tee as the gray complements the color of the skirt well. Because I wanted to keep the look suitable for going out, I chose dressier accessories. I love how shiny these pointy silver Zara Heels are. I wanted to keep the jewelry more on the minimal side, but still have an impact, so I layered these Tom Binns safety pin bracelets in silver and gold. For a little more color, I finished the look with a colorful threaded clutch from Zara.
I wanted to try something different with this post. Frame is a brand that is quickly getting a huge cult following with the celebs as well as on the streets, so I chose three different pairs by them to style looks that will work for any aspect of your day. Also, depending on where you are going, they can even work for evening. See the looks below.
I couldn’t do a post like this without styling their Le Luxe Noir jeans. Black can easily be worn numerous ways, but I decided to go the sportier route by pairing them with a bomber jacket by Etoile Isabel Marant and not so sporty ankle boots by Anine Bing. I then finished it off with a t shirt by Givenchy, belt by Jil Sander, and my new favorite bracelet by Luv AJ. There is something about an all black look with different shades of black that is just chic. It doesn’t look too put together, yet you still look smart without looking like you are trying or cared about what you put together.
As the weather is warming up, many men are starting to pull away from the darker washes to lighter ones. A great alternative from the usual light blues is white. It’s fresh and most of the time unexpected to be seen worn casually. They are not just for Labor Day parties or a Hamptons day anymore. They can work with anyone’s closet, whether you are preppy and put together or someone that has more of a street approach to how they dress. The ideas are endless. You can see how I styled the Simon Miller Stinson Jeans (available here) three different ways below.
I could not resist doing an almost all white look when we got asked to do this post. You just can’t go wrong pairing a great fitting t shirt with a great fitting pair of jeans. Whether it be the same color or not. I chose a shirt by Jil Sander, Luv AJ ID bracelet, a beanie by The Elder Statesman, and a pair of classic Timberland boots. I initially wanted to finish this look off with a gray beanie, but felt like it was washing out the look and giving a marshmallow effect. Adding the red brings life to the outfit and helps pick up the gold from the bracelet and brown in the shoes.
I have been a fan of the J Brand Leather Pants in Cement since I first saw them a few months back. They don’t feel dull like many other gray styles and are perfect for this season. I styled them with a floral shirt from Zara, a yellow shoulder bag from Trussardi and some Alexander Wang sandals.
After going the more casual route with my weekend looks the past few times, I wanted to do something that was very feminine and breezy. I found that yellow and beige tones work really well with the color of these pants. I am usually not a fan of looks that are too matchy or feminine, but the mood I was in while putting this outfit together was definitely cheery. The white sandals and the sunny shade of the bag helps lighten the look and detour it away from my usual moody/sportier vibe that I go for. Not sure if this means a change in my personal style, but this is definitely one of my favorite looks that I put together. What do you think of it?
