It’s that time of year again when it’s almost Halloween! Here at DenimBlog, we love creating denim inspired outfits to really spruce up the costume front and keep it themed. We have of course put together a look each, so there’s three in total, so you can be denim costume ready for the weekend! Happy Halloween everyone!
I wanted to have some fun and my first thought was to choose the Mad Hatter. The way he mixes prints has always been intriguing and being that it is Halloween, it is a day to get away with it. I started the look off with the red plaid R13 harem pants. They have an exaggerated and cropped fit that just works with the quirk that he gives off. Now for the mixing, I went for a tweed vest by Lardini, a scarf by Haider Ackermann scarf and socks by Paul Smith to bring in the ‘mad’ aspect. Though some that is all about exaggeration, the Mad Hatter does incorporate some clean classic pieces. For those pieces, I chose a clean white shirt by Versus and a pair of Uri Minkoff shoes. Then to finish it all off, his signature hat. How many of you are looking forward for Halloween?
I wanted to do something traditional and known for denim for my Halloween costume as I usually do something related to the superhero theme. I chose to go down a Western route and do a cowgirl inspired look and I love it! I chose these One Teaspoon shorts as the base as I know we all love to look a little bit sexy on Halloween and then I paired them with a red plaid shirt from Topshop, which you might want to tie up at the front. I of course paired this look with some classic Cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, as well as a Western belt to really keep the theme going. To make it a little more modern and feminine, I finally chose these aviator sunglasses and a red lipstick for a bold statement. How many of you are going as a cowgirl this year?
Overalls are everywhere this season and so are Minions! I figured combining the two would be the perfect Halloween costume. This costume is a really fun and playful look and can easily be created with things already in your closet. First, I chose these 7 For All Mankind overalls, and then this signature bright yellow tee shirt. I added some black lace up boots and gloves, and finally clear rimmed glasses to look similar to the goggles.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to do an outfit that was toned down and quite gender-less in a way. I chose the Ksubi Spray On Skinny Jeans in Carbon Black as my base as I think the washed grey skinny with distressing is really easy going. I added colour with this Philosophy Wool Pullover and then contrasted it more with this Loeffler Randall Blue Bag. I thought some Loeffler Randall Silver Shoes would really brighten things up too, but as they are flat and brogue like, they work well for daytime wear. I finally finished it off with a pair of the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer and then a Ted Baker Ring. I definitely love this look and it’s something I would wear myself!
AMO is still a relatively new brand with styles that have very intriguing vintage inspired detailing like their Twisted Seam Skinny in True Blue. There is a ’70s attitude to the style that I find fun and fresh for a pair of cropped skinny jeans which is why I chose them to do a look with this week.
When it came to the styling, I wanted to go for a slight western edge in the vein of a California girl. I started off by choosing a vintage inspired t shirt by Madewell. Then to bring in the western, I went with a fringed jacket by Saint Laurent and belt by B-Low The Belt. But to help keep it modern and because I just love jeans of this crop with ankle boots, I chose a studded pair by Anine Bing. There is still a western thing going with the details, but there is also a sense of modernity with the cut. How would you style these jeans?
When a gray wash is done right, it is perfection. Which is the case with the new Silvie wash by Paige. There is versatility to them and they are done in a way that enhances a look with how ever you style them. Another great thing about them is that they come in some of their most popular styles for whether you want even more edge with their Edgemonts or classic with their Margot and Verdugo. It is a wash that inspired me to not just style for the women but also show how the men can get away with wearing them as well. See the looks that I came up with below.
We don’t see high-rise jeans in a gray wash out often. The combination of the two have a retro feel to it, but styled with the right pieces, the Margot in Silvie can feel very modern. I paired the jeans with a distressed t shirt from AMIRI. By pairing it with a t shirt with a lived in look, it helps bring it to this decade. Alessandra Ambrosio was kind of my inspiration with this look here, so after the pairing of the shirt and jeans, I went for pieces that she would accessorize with. I chose a fringed bag by Saint Laurent and boots by Toga Pulla to help give the look a boho vibe. Alessandra also is a huge fan of aviators, so to finish it off I went for the classic pair by Ray-ban.
The Verdugo cut is classic and just fits amazing on everyone, so it was a no brainer that these were going to be one of the choices. I just love the feel that band tees give to a look as it just gives this cool vibe without the look of trying. I went for an updated take on the classic Ramones t shirt to layer under a leather jacket by R13. To add a feminine touch I went for a bag by Bottega Veneta and suede pumps by Stuart Weitzman. They are pieces that don’t take away from the cool girl vibe, but just give it a different spin.
I chose the Edgemont to style a look for the guys as most men just stick with a classic jean. I wanted to do something that was out of the ordinary for the usual guy, but in a way that is still easy to wear without straying too far. I decided to go for another band tee here in a similar colorway, as I find the tones to complement each other really well and enhance each other. Especially against the red of the plaid Cheap Monday shirt, it gives the grey even more richness. As tan shoes just go with everything, a pair of the Saint Laurent boots was the first and only choice for this look here along with the Goorin Bros hat. It’s a look with just small details that elevate the everyday just a little bit.
