I chose these J Brand studded jeans because I really loved the intricate details of the beads and studs and I thought they had a really edgy look. I wanted to keep everything else minimalist but not too girly, so I chose this sheer Alexander McQueen Blouse.
I wanted to add some color with this Zara Studded bag and the jewelery, so I chose this green ring from Forever 21 and these blue skull stud earrings from Iosslliani. I thought the cap toe of these black Anne Klein shoes kept the outfit interesting and didn’t distract from the details of the pants.
For my look I chose these Citizens of Humanity Elson Straight leg jeans because they have a bit of a higher rise and I thought the straight leg would look really nice with these Belle Sigerson Morrison booties. I chose these booties because they’re easy for walking around the city while still keeping your feet warm.
For a top, I chose this Otte NY sweater in camel, I always like turtlenecks because they keep me warm without adding the bulk of a scarf, and I think this slouchiness makes it look very cozy! I think it is easy to stick with basic black outwear and accessories in the winter, but to keep things from getting too boring or drab, I chose this cheery bright peach winter jacket. I wanted to keep the jacket from looking too girly, so I added some edge with this leopard print beret and finished the look with red leather texting gloves, because there’s no bigger pain then taking off your gloves to text!
For this weeks going out look, I decided to do something different and use a pair of bootcut jeans. I generally pick skinny jeans as they are what I live in as they suit my body shape the most, but I know so many of you love your bootcut jeans as well. So this weeks look consists of a pair of J Brand Bailey bootcut jeans, which I dressed up with a more casual feminine feel for a lunch out on the weekend or an early dinner.
I chose to pair the jeans with a River Island cream peplum top and a Michael Kors cashmere shrug over the top to keep the wind off your shoulders. I generally don’t like the look of bootcut jeans with closed toe heels, so I chose a pair of Tory Burch Lucian wedges to go with the jeans, but they should be worn with the hems over the wedges and almost touching the floor for height. I accessorized the look with a Salvatore Ferragamo Gold Key necklace, a Kate Spade New York All Wrapped Up bracelet and a 1988 rectangle ring. I love the combination of golds and creams together with a dark blue, so I quite like the vibe this outfit gives off. How many of you dress your bootcut jeans up like this?
DL1961 asked us to style their new motorcycle jeans, the Hazel in Speedster. These jeans are a new take on their classic motorcycle trend. They have details such as ribbing at the thigh and zippers in a clean super skinny silhouette.
Even though these jeans are a standout piece of their own, I found that you can still go graphic with the look by pairing them with contrasting black and white. I decided to do the contrasting part with the tops by pairing together a DressedUndressed turtleneck under a Tibi silk camisole. I finished it off with a pair of Balenciaga ankle boots. Another reason why I chose this type of layering, over the usual coat, is because it is a bit unexpected. It sounds like it shouldn’t work, but looks very chic when worn. How many of you will be layering your looks like this with these jeans?
