As today is the holiday, I wanted to do a look that felt comfortable and chic at the same time. I chose the Black Orchid Amber Skinny Zipper Jeans in Ebony for the worn black wash it has. The wash is versatile and has an ease to it at the same time that I find really appealing.
I decided to keep the color palette pretty simple with a black a grey palette. I chose a shirt by R13 for its slouchy fit and a pair of Toga Pulla boots that instantly make any look cooler. Then to smarten it all up and bring in the feel of the season, a coat by Nomad and scarf by ACNE. How many of you are excited for today?
For my weekend going out look this week, as it’s the Holiday season, I thought it would be good to do something festive and really comfortable. You might be picking up some last minute gifts or popping out to a friends to watch a movie, so why not dress the part?
I chose these Current/Elliott Fling Mid Rise Boyfriend Jeans in Tattered Destroyed as I think they are perfectly worn in and comfortable! For the sweaters, depending on what your mood is, I opted for a Vero Moda Roll Neck Sweater to keep things subtle, or I chose a Reindeer Sweater if you want to spruce things up a bit more! Either work with this look! To finish it off, I chose the Sam Edelman Petty Booties for comfort and then a Santa hat, but you can switch it out for a beanie if you prefer! Which sweater and hat would you pick? I would definitely choose the festive option!
I chose these FRAME Le Skinny Leather Pants in Washed black because I loved seeing them on Reese Witherspoon this past week, but wanted to style a cozier, more casual look around them. I chose this gray sweater from Helmut Lang because the cropped length really shows off the pants. For accessories, I chose this M2Malletier python clutch because it adds a nice touch of color and texture, plus I love the unique shape. I finished with a bit more texture from these velvet loafers from Cantarelli and a chunky gold chain necklace from Adia Kibur.
I wanted to choose a pair of jeans that were a bit different from the usual classic cut and the Slash jeans by Hudson are just that. The exposed zip and the lace-ups on the side add a cool vibe to them that is edgy and modern. The details standout, yet being kept tonal to the wash of the jeans, it keeps them versatile and can take you from chic to something more casual. See the three ways I styled them below.
I wanted to take these jeans to a more feminine route with this look here, something that is very prim. I chose to pair the jeans with a t shirt by Rag & Bone and boots by Saint Laurent. I then added a few feminine touches to the look with a coat by Scotch & Soda and a Vita Fede cuff to finish it all off.
I wanted to go for something that was a little in between with this look here. Something that still felt chic while still having a casual sense. Pairing the jeans with an old school pair of Adidas Superstars was the first thought. The cropped fit along with the details gives off a Parisian chic vibe when paired with the sneakers. As I am not the biggest fan of pairing together white shoes with a white top, I went for a black men’s t-shirt by Theory for the slouch that it’ll offer. Then to pull it all together and take it away from casual, a long tailored coat by TOPSHOP.
This is the most casual of the looks, but unlike most of the my other takes on casual, I chose a pair of Sam Edelman ballet flats as the shoe of choice. We don’t see much of them lately and I find that they play off the jeans really well. To keep that casual/Marant-feel going, I chose a slouchy sweater by TOPSHOP (similar) and a woven belt by Caputo & Co.. Then to finish the look, a heavy knit scarf by White + Warren to keep the chill away.
-From running errands to heading to a meeting, how many of you are looking to update your classic looks with a pair like these?
