The frayed hem is a popular trend right now and one brand that will carry on the style into the new season is MOTHER Denim. I would say they were my highlight when I visited MOTHER to see the new collection. The style is so well thought out and the cut along with the array of washes they come in is amazing. I couldn’t wait to do a post on them and you can see how I styled The Looker Ankle Fray in Guilty as Sin below.
This style just gives an edgy vibe with the frayed detailing and the distressed knee, so doing a monochromatic biker inspired look was a given. I chose to pair them with an R13 leather jacket to add even more of a tough vibe to the concept. I then kept everything else pretty classic with some Margiela boots and a simple black t shirt by TOPSHOP, but wanted to add a chic sense with this 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. It feels like an unexpected pairing with the look, yet feels right because of the embossing of the leather.
With the distressing, the pair can also go on the casual side very easily. My first thought of a shoe pairing when I saw them was chukkas. It may be due to how I would wear them myself, which is with a similar pair like these Common Projects. I then didn’t want to stray from the easiness too far, so I chose this graphic t shirt by TOPSHOP and backpack by Opening Ceremony. A graphic t shirt and distressed jeans just go hand-in-hand. Though simple, I find a little jewelry like this Cartier bracelet gives the look just the right amount of elevation to bring it all together.
I haven’t done a look with heels in quite a while and decided to do at least one as you can dress these up as well. You can’t go wrong pairing any pair of denim with suede shoes. Both wear into something so magical that only they can achieve. I chose this pair by Stuart Weitzman because they are so classic and are a great subtle contrast to the jeans. As the weather is warm, I thought another look with a t shirt would be redundant, so I chose this camisole by TOPSHOP. I opted for this Haider Ackermann bomber jacket (get a similar one here) for a color contrast and being that the first look was all black. The Ray-Ban wayfarers are the finishing touch as you cannot go wrong with them and they just make any look feel cooler.
I wanted to do something different from what I have usually been doing for my ‘Weekend Look’ posts and chose to dress it up a bit without straying from my casual sense. As culottes are a huge trend that has hit the markets, I decided to take on the style this week with the Astrid Jeans in Mayfair by Citizens of Humanity.
As fashion week is happening right now, I wanted to style these jeans in a way that will have street style photographers interested. I paired the jeans with a crisp shirt by Equipment and some Altuzarra mules. Then to keep it fun, I chose a clutch by Charlotte Olympia for the cheekiness it adds to the look. To finish the outfit off, a pair of classic aviators by Ray-Ban to block out the sun or the flashes of the shutterbugs. What are your plans for this weekend?
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to style something really comfortable, casual and suitable for the Autumn weather that’s creeping up on us. I chose to style the Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in Black Leatherette as these are still one of my favourite coated jeans and I adore them for Fall! The coating on these jeans is amazing.
I paired the jeans with a slouchy cream sweater by Rag & Bone as I think this really gives off that easy vibe I was going for. I then chose the Sam Edelman Petty booties in Putty as these are perfect for that casual yet sophisticated look. For the accessories, I went with an orange Juicy Couture bag as I wanted to add a splash of colour with an Autumn theme. I then chose a Rag & Bone trilby hat as I wanted to just mix in that rocker vibe, just a small bit, but then I made it feminine with the gold Sarah Designs watch.
Labor Day is tomorrow, so we thought it might be nice to each style a look centered around white, using white denim of course. We don’t usually do Labor Day looks, but we thought it might make a nice change! We have 2 women’s ensembles here and 1 guys outfit, featuring a skinny jean, a pair of shorts and a tapered fit for men, so there should be a look here for everyone! Happy Labor Day!
For my Labor Day outfit, I wanted something really casual and easy, but still chic. I decided to style the Paige Denim Verdugo skinny jeans in White as they are one of the most non see through white jeans I have tried. I paired them with an Equipment white sleeveless shirt to keep the all white theme. For my shoes, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle in Nude to keep things clean and then chose some brown accessories in the form of a Michael Kors tote and a tan belt, just to break up the white on white. I wanted to add just a tiny bit of colour, so I opted for a Hipanema bracelet and then two cool rings with a star and pineapple on them!
Since Labor Day has that saying of it being the last day of the year to wear white, I decided to do a look that was mostly in that theme. I chose the Nudie Thin Finn in White Noise to be paired with a collarless N.Hoolywood shirt. The shirt has a sense that elevates a look that I find even the classic white button up doesn’t. I then kept the accessories simple with some grey suede shoes by John Varvatos and a watch by Tsovet to help break the look up a bit. So how many of you guys are planning on donning all white this holiday?
For my Labor Day outfit I wanted to style a look that would be a great transitional outfit as temperatures start to cool down. I chose this white Rebecca Taylor punched denim skirt because I love the punched detail all over it and it has a great summery vibe. I like the way this pale pink Toteme Rocha silk blouse lightened the whole outfit up and gave it a very feminine feel. I layered this army jacket from Black Five over the outfit, which would be great for slipping on over the blouse when the weather starts to cool down. I also chose this Kenneth Jay Lane coin necklace for a nice bit of glam and then finished with these plain white Vans and this suede Proenza Schouler bag.
