We’re starting a new feature on DenimBlog, where we will be styling a pair of jeans for a weekend going out look each Thursday.
I love these J Brand Noir Purple skinny jeans. The purple color is really a popular shade for fall and I thought these would be a fun pair to dress up for a weekend out. I really love this color paired with gold, so I chose this gold Rebecca Taylor leather Bustier Top. Since the blouse is so bold, I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal with these Dara Ettinger stud earrings. I also accessorized with a leopard print Alexander Wang clutch and these Charlotte Olympia Dolly Platform Pumps. Do you like the look?
I decided to do a “3 Ways to Wear…” post for the guys this time. Since it is the first one, I thought “why not go all out and do some man leather?”, so I chose the new J Brand Tyler in Black Leather (click here to buy) as the first one to style. Being that these are black, they are much easier to wear. I am sure that the guys that have these would have no issue finding anything to pair with them.
This look here is probably the most representative of me. Just a fitted sweater, fitted shirt, fitted pants, and some sneakers that go with everything. Plus it is all black, which is what I usually wear everyday. I paired the pants with a Balenciaga Egyptofunk Sweater, a T by Alexander Wang T Shirt, and some Air Yeezy II. What I like most about this look is that you still look dressed up and put together, but still comfortable. It is one that is just so clean. If you are looking to spruce up the look even more, I say a fitted cap would be the best thing to add to the look.
The cold weather look. I have to add one of these, due to the fact that it is the actual season to wear a look like this. I paired the pants with a Silent by Damir Doma Coat, T by Alexander Wang Shirt, and some YSL Sneakers. Being that there is no print in any of the pieces, I found adding a pair of shoes that had detail wouldn’t be overboard. Since the shoes are higher cut, I say to have them loosely tucked into the show. In other words, a sloppy tuck. It will help bring out the grunge factor of the look even more.
This is the most casual of the looks. Probably one that you can wear to the grocery store…well maybe that is just me. I put the pants together with a Mugler Sweater, T by Alexander Wang Shirt, and some TOMS. To keep this look from looking like you just rolled out of the bed and threw on whatever was on the floor, I say to wear everything fitted and have the sweater a bit more loose. The details give off the illusion that it is more fitted, so I think you can get away with wearing it looser. Also if the weather decides to warm up you have an equally great casual look by just pairing the shirt, pants and TOMS.
I decided to style the Rag & Bone RBW23 Leather Pants for three reasons, 1) being that I own these, 2) to show how versatile they actually are even with the zippers and 3) because Fall is finally here. Well, for everyone else except Southern California.
I have pretty much worn these just about everyday since I got them and with just about everything. I even find them easier to wear than my actual black jeans, believe it or not. You can see all the looks below and how I think they can be worn. You can also read my review on these pants here.
This is a look that I think everyone will interpret one way or another when the cold hits. A heavy wool coat is a necessity for everyone, in my opinion. You can throw it over anything and look put together. I paired the pants with a Denis Gagon coat, T by Alexander Wang Long Sleeve Shirt, Mackage Beanie, and the Chloe Susan Boots. I wanted this outfit to look warm, but still have a sense of comfort to it with the boots. I think any girl that wears this will easily turn heads when she is walking down the street.
Here is another styling post featuring the Textile Elizabeth and James Debbie jeans in Destroyed Midnight. I decided to go three different routes for this post: Winter, Casual, and Dressy to show the versatility of the jeans and prove that it is possible to go all three routes with a pair of ripped jeans.
I know that it is still pretty warm out, but I thought it’ll be nice to feature one look that will work for the colder seasons. I paired the jeans with a Just Female Wool Coat, Jeffery Campbell Taro boots, and Textile Elizabeth and James Fairfax T Shirt. By keeping the look monochromatic, I decided to go more out there with the different textures and details like the wool and fringe. The jacket and boots easily dresses up what would otherwise be a basic black look with the shape and detailing.
This is the more casual look out of the three, one that I think many girls wear day-to-day. I paired the jeans with the Textile Elizabeth and James Kelsey Parka, R13 t shirt, Diesel belt, bracelets by Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry and FELIKS+ADRIK, and Isabel Marant Betty sneakers. You cannot get more casual and still look great from wearing a look like this. All the colors work well together and the different fabrics in the shoes and belt help add some more “oomph” the look. I find adding a belt to an outfit really makes a look pull together. It helps break up an outfit (a monochromatic one especially) and really pulls everything together. They are a great way to add a unique detail without going all out.
Now for the dressier look. I thought dressing up a pair of distressed jeans would be a great idea being that you don’t see it too often. I paired the jeans with a Helmut Lang shirt, Dannijo necklace, and Givenchy heels. I think this outfit will look great if these jeans fit you more cropped. If not, folding the jeans inside to mid-ankle will fix that problem for you. A clean line in the jeans will really help this look because of the neckline of the shirt. As if the shirt didn’t dress the look up enough, I decided to add the necklace to clean up the style of the jeans even further. Adding a simple pair of heels with subtle detailing is the only thing this look needs to finish it off.
