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?
My weekend going out look this time is something more classic and suitable for an evening out. I decided to go with a rich dark blue skinny jean as a base and opted for the J Brand 620 Power Stretch skinny jeans in Indigo. I then paired them with the Topshop burgundy spot shirt to give it a bit of colour and layered a black blazer from Topshop over the top to smarten things up. I chose a pair of Christian Louboutin studded Pigalle heels to add some edge to the look and then finished it off with a sleek black clutch from Stella McCartney and rings by Boticca and Marc by Marc Jacobs. I would definitely wear something like this for an evening! Would you?
