The R13 Chaps are definitely a standout piece. Many have thought, along with myself, that they are not a versatile pair. As I paid more attention to them, I started to notice how versatile they actually are and started to find them one of the best designed pairs out. Whether you choose a more feminine look or something more casual, I put together three different looks that will definitely change your perspective of this style.
When looking at these jeans recently, I have been thinking that they have a very “lounging on the couch” vibe. I find that they work really well with slouchy knits like this one here from Zara. Since this is a look that is a stay in look, I chose not to pair them with shoes, but with some printed socks by Missoni and then added a belt by Shipley Halmos to dress the look up a bit with a half tuck. I then finished everything off with a book by Grace Coddington.
For my weekend going out look, I took a hint from Jonathan’s look last week and decided to style a pair of gray jeans. I chose J Brand’s Gray Leather leggings because they can be worn so many different ways. I think the gray color is a nice change from most of the black pairs of leather pants we see.
I chose a more casual vibe for this weeks look with this cozy gray turtleneck sweater from N Peal. I added some Converse all star sneakers and a Givenchy leopard print tote. For a bit of color I added a red hat from Miss Selfridge and a green ring from Dara Ettinger.
I have always wanted to know how FRAME would do the motorcycle trend. They are a brand that have fit down perfectly, so it was only a matter of the details in my opinion. They did nothing but surprise me with their Le Luxe Skinny Biker. When it came to styling them, I had three women in mind; Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, and Halle Berry. Each love themselves a motorcycle jean and have worn them each in their own way without taking away the edgy appeal of them. See the looks that were inspired by these three ladies below.
As we all know, Cara loves her street wear pieces with a mix of a late ’80s and ’90s feel to it. Her staples are usually a bomber jacket, a slinky shirt or tank with some bulky boots or sneakers. Then to finish it off she usually opts for a backpack instead of the usual handbag. With Cara, her jackets are always just as much of a statement as her jeans, so there was no doubt that I wanted to pair these jeans with a Scotch&Soda jacket. I then kept everything else monochromatic and paired it with a camisole by Topshop, then finished it off with a backpack and boots from Saint Laurent.
I am really looking forward to the cold if you can’t tell by this look here. I chose a pair of R13 Skinny Jeans in Dirty Grey as the base of the look and paired them with pieces that will keep you warm while still looking chic.
I am obsessed with puffers this season and thought that this Belstaff one was great. It still feels like the classic puffer, but is much more elevated with the way it is quilted and piped with the patent leather. For a little more warmth, an update of the classic white shirt in leather by Topshop. It has a slight midriff fit that doesn’t take it too out of season territory. I then finished it off with a belt by Saint Laurent and some leather boots by Isabel Marant. How many of you are also looking forward to the cold?
