For this weeks weekend going out look, I wanted to style something playful and casual which would be perfect for a day at the park or beach. During the summer, I prefer activity days out like that more so than going out in the evening, which is why I wanted to create something easy. I chose these Warehouse Shorts Denim Dungarees as dungarees/overalls are a huge trend at the moment, as you know. I think the shorts versions can look cute and not too frumpy. I chose to pair them with a Topshop KaPow Print Bandeau as I think dungarees look best worn with cropped tops, to keep them from looking too 90′s.
As the top is orange, I went down the orange and gold route to contrast the blue of the denim. I chose these ASOS Format Sandals as they are the perfect colour combination for the look! I then added a hippy vibe with an Avant Garde Paris Star Arm Cuff and chose two bracelets for the wrist, a Shoebox By The Horn Bracelet and a Blond Accessories Tracy Bracelet. I think the gold jewellery on the arms will really add a touch of glamour to this outfit. To finish it off, and of course keep with the colour palette, I went with the Ray-Ban Orange Aviators. So, have any of you worn a look like this?
For this weeks “Going Out” look, I chose the Big Star Avalon High Rise Skinny in Halcyon. There is something about acid/bleach washed jeans at the moment that I am just loving. It may be the thrill of the search for something out of the usual clean blues and prints.
This pair here is one of my favorites that has come out over the years. They don’t feel dated and are easy to style for a day look or for going out as they work just as well with neutrals as they do with vibrant colors, like a red. I went the neutral route and styled them with a vintage Chanel jacket, a tank by Ksubi, sandals by Saint Laurent and finished it with a necklace by Isabel Marant. So how many of you are looking forward to trying out acid washed jeans again?
For my weekend going out look, I wanted to style a look around a great pair of denim shorts. I think a well fitting pair of denim shorts is an essential for any wardrobe. I chose these Victoria Beckham denim shorts because I like the darker wash with slight distressing and I like that they have a slouchier fit.
I paired them with this Proenza Schouler striped tee because it is a great classic piece that can be worn a ton of different ways. I chose these studded Chloe Susanna boots because I love the stud details on them and thought they make a great point of interest in the outfit. I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal because when it gets hot, I usually can’t be bothered to wear a lot of accessories, but I liked the impact of these Margiela rings. Lastly, I finished with this cow printed structured bag from Givenchy.
I feel as though leather pants have become season-less and that you can wear them anytime throughout the year with just a bit of tweaking here and there. Two people that come to mind are Miranda Kerr and Rosie Hunting-Whiteley, who are constantly caught in their leather trousers with everything from knits to lightweight tanks.
One of the new leather pants that I just get more fond of each day are the J Brand Nicola Leather Pants, which were just released. They have ribbing on the knees, which is new for J Brand. They are a brand that has never really ventured into heavy details, but these are strong, yet still feel subtle, while keeping true to the evolving J Brand soul.
For this look, I wanted to go for something very prim and show that leather pants don’t always have to be styled edgy. I paired them with a shirt by Topshop, flats by Repetto, and a bag from Marni. I then finished it off with sunglasses by Linda Farrow. I would say that this look is heavily influenced by Miranda Kerr’s personal style; she is someone who has styling leather pants in a very feminine, yet smart way, down packed.
