There have been very few blue jeans this season that have been attention grabbing in my opinion. Most have stuck to clean singular colors, which have nothing wrong with them, just lacking a component to make them stand out. Strange coming from the person that loves his black denim. One pair that definitely does and will probably always have that luster is the Oil Stain Skinny by Rag & Bone. The style still has that classic versatile appeal without sacrificing any interesting details, which is why I chose to style them in three different classic ways for this post.
Blue, white and black is probably my most go-to color combination whenever I wear blue jeans. It always feels fresh each and every time and still looks crisp. I kept everything simple with a t shirt by R13, a bag by Proenza Schouler and boots by Isabel Marant. I then wanted to add some more texture to the look and print to keep it from looking plain with a scarf by Zara.
I’ve been a fan of these 3×1 W3 Channel Seam Skinny jeans for quite some time and I decided to create my weekend going out look around them. Overall, I wanted to keep the look pretty causal and incorporate some darker colors for fall. I chose this Rebecca Taylor tweed motorcycle style jacket because I think the black and white tweed goes well with the white stripe of the jeans and I layered it over this slouchy, sheer tank from All Saints. I think the jacket adds a nice polish that can transition this easily from running errands during the day to drinks or dinner at night.
I wanted to bring a bit of color into the outfit with my accessories. I’m looking for any excuse to wear boots and I love the color of this wine colored pair from Madewell. I liked the dark green color and shape of this Wendy Nichols bag. Lastly, to add a bit more color to the outfit, I chose these Gemma Redux blue triangle earrings.
DL1961, a brand we love here at DenimBlog, has released 3 new key styles for the season. They have the Hazel moto jeans in Ducati above, the Emma leggings in Pandora below and finally the Riley boyfriend jeans in Savage. Each are very unique and different, so I styled them in 3 very different ways.
For the Hazel moto jeans above, I love the idea of mixing a tougher jean with some feminine pieces, which is why I went with a cream shirt and heels. I like the fact that the shirt is made that little bit more masculine with the leather accents. To tie things together, I added some gold jewellery, just to feminize it and then added a splash of color with the red bag. Finally, the glasses just add that little touch of glamour to the outfit.
The Emma leggings in Pandora are definitely a more classic jean. They have a dark wash in a textured velvet pinstripe combined with a skinny fit that’s comfortable. These can be styled in endless ways, however I chose to go girly and edgy with a burgundy leather jacket over a simple white tank top. Burgundy and dark blue always go well together! I added the black heels and ring to glam it up, but used a cream snood to bring it down a notch. I really like this outfit and would wear it myself!
Finally, for the Riley boyfriend jeans in Savage, I didn’t want to dress them down. Boyfriend jeans are worn casual about 90% of the time, so I wanted to dress them up and go with a different vibe. I added a white structured blazer with some taupe ankle boots, just to give it a bit of a feminine, yet tough feel. I chose a cream cross body bag and sunglasses, again to add to that casual feel, but then used some silver rings and a watch to contrast that. Which look do you like the most?

For this weeks weekend going out look, I didn’t actually start with the jeans for styling. I actually started out with this gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB bag in Plum and then paired the Office Reim Purple Heels with it. I then thought about the jeans and decided on something clean and dark, so I went for the Paige Hoxton Ultra Skinny jeans in Gloss as they fit that description perfectly!
To make things look chic and classy, I opted for a Very Eickhoff Shirt in cream with black leather accents. Then, to finish the look off, I chose a Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry silver watch and a Butterfly Trio of Silver rings. I really like how simple and clean this outfit is, but it has such character with the intense jewel tones of purple.
