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.
As Jonathan mentioned last week, the old adage that you can’t wear white after Labor Day doesn’t hold true (I love winter whites!) but in honor of the last official weekend of Summer, I thought I’d style my look around a white pair of shorts.
I chose these Isabel Marant Embroidered shorts because the embroidery is very summery. I then opted for a slouchy white tank from The Row and thought this knit sweater from Mango would be perfect for throwing over the tank when the temperatures drop. For accessories, I chose these pale peach wedge slides from Balenciaga because I think they’re a great complement to the white shorts without detracting from them. I finished the look with these light brown sunglasses and these delicate rose gold earrings from Monique Pean.
Even during this heatwave we have been having here in Los Angeles, I have been thinking with a Fall/Winter sense when it comes to styling. White jeans are a piece that can easily transition from season to season now. They are no longer a staple for the Summer. I chose the Paige Denim Edgemont in Optic White for the hardware that they have and I think that it helps take the classic style to a seasonless territory.
The jeans are paired with an R13 sweater from their new collection. I love that they have taken the classic striped sweater and shredded it up to fit in with the soul of the line. Then for the accessories, I opted for timeless pieces that enhance the overall grunge vibe that comes off when the jeans and sweater are paired together. Some Saint Laurent boots to help keep the look tough, a scarf by ACNE, and the always eternal classic Ray-Ban wayfarers to finish it all off.
