The Drop Crotch jeans are just one of the many forward thinking pairs that R13 have to offer for Spring. You may have remembered the post on the black plaid pair not too long ago, but these pants also come in a worn blue denim, as well as red plaid. As choosing just one of those pairs was hard, I decided to style each pair here.
The Black Plaid pair would have to be my favorite out of the three pairs here. The choice of plaid and the color all work seamlessly and feels fluid. With this pair I got that Yōji Yamamoto and Commes des Comme des Garçons feel that I said before, but I also get this Haider Ackermann sense a bit as well, depending on how they are styled. When paired with more streamlined and edgier pieces, they definitely take on a similar aesthetic to Ackermann. I chose to pair them with a leather blazer by a Band of Outsiders and boots by Haider (similar). Then as those pieces are very strong, I wanted to go clean with other pieces like this La Garçonne Moderne and a simple white t shirt (similar here).
As the denim pair of these has more of an easier feel than the plaids, I went for something very easy with a slight Eastern Orient feel as it is the vibe that it first gave off to me when I saw them. As blue denim is easier than a black pair, I went with a Steven Alan wrap cardigan over a more structured wrap jacket. I then chose sandals by Lanvin because the cropped fit works really well with multi-strap sandals and kept the top simple with a tank by La Garçonne Moderne. To finish off the look, I chose rings by Margiela.
This pair in Red Plaid feels the most street out of the three. They can easily be paired with flat boots, I actually think they are best worn with them, and a belt like these by Rag & Bone and Karl Lagerfeld. As they feel edgier, I went with a tougher shirt like this muscle by R13. I then chose a jacket by ACNE to pull the whole look together.
-Which pair are you interested in trying?
It’s St. Patrick’s Day today and we all thought it might be good to do some outfits which were inspired by the green theme! Not many people tend to wear green jeans or too much green in general, but there are plenty of ways that you can incorporate it into your outfit! The most popular shade of green lately is mint! It’s one of the best to wear for Spring as it’s so fresh and light, while something like olive or khaki is better suited to Winter. Each of us has styled our own take on a green outfit; 2 women’s looks include jeans, 1 doesn’t and the other is a guys outfit. Are you wearing green today?
My outfit above is something classic which includes a lot of green without being too over the top. I have a lot of Irish family and am part Irish myself, so I had fun doing this outfit! I chose a pair of DL1961 green skinny jeans as I loved the colour of them, it’s really intense. I paired them with a lace crochet top and nude heels to keep the green jeans as the focal point. For my accessories, I wanted to have a statement making necklace and found this amazing green one! I think it just adds a bit more femininity to the look while making a statement. I then chose a floral watch by Olivia Burton to freshen things up, a clover inspired peridot ring and then a mint coloured bag to keep things light.
For my weekend going out look, I chose to style these Paige Verdugo skinny jeans in Corrosion. I love all of the paint splatter and shredded details on these jeans and thought they’d be perfect to style for a casual weekend look.
To keep the main focus on the details of the jeans, I wanted to keep the rest of the look classic and polished, so I chose a black and white color scheme, starting with this YSL Blouse and these Kate Spade Saturday loafers. For accessories, I added these classic cat eye Sunglasses, then a little bit of gold, trimmed with classic pearls on this Sylvia Toledano Cuff. Lastly, I finished the look with this structured Saint Laurent bag.
This look could easily be transitioned to night by swapping the flats for heels or booties and adding a great blazer or leather jacket.
I got a bit inspired by Barbara Martelo’s look here. Since I saw it, I could not think of any look that could be cooler to influence my idea for this post. I chose the Citizens of Humanity Rocket in Black Diamond as they are one of the best high waisted jeans out right now in my opinion. The proportion and position of the back pockets give the back a flattering look instead of a dated mom’s vibe that others tend to lean towards.
As the boots are pretty much irreplaceable, I chose the exact boots as Barbara’s by Saint Laurent. I then chose a jacket from Topshop, a t shirt from Organic by John Patrick, and finished it with a belt by Isabel Marant. You can even take that Barbara Martelo look even further by topping it all off with some classic Ray-Bans. What are you readers looking forward to this weekend?
