I chose the J Brand Tyler in Reckless (click here to buy) to style for this post. These jeans have a slim cut fit with some distressing at the knees of the jeans. The two looks that I leaned towards were for a younger guy that likes to have more fun with his clothing and one that is more mature and just enjoys his clothes, but is not looking to make as much of an intentional statement or be loud.
I have always been fond of this Burberry sweater. When I chose these jeans, my first instinct was to pair them with this sweater. I thought the colors would compliment each other very well. To finish off the look, I chose a belt by DSquared2, James Perse t shirt, and some red sneakers by Lanvin. I wanted to bring out the reds a in the sweater bit more and I thought the shoes and belt will do just that. This is a look that I find really classic and any guy would be able to wear. Plus, it is a lot of color, more than what I usually do.
This look is more for the mature man. Someone that appreciates clothes, but is more into the fit than wearing them to stand out. The jeans are paired with a Carven coat, Nudie t shirt, and Alexander McQueen shoes. I added the shoes to smarten up the look and take it out of the casual route that distressing can lean towards. The shoes also makes the look more mature compared to a sneaker that will not only make it more casual, but dresses it down. Which one do you prefer?
I opted to go for a “Concert” look with this weeks Weekend look. This is the route I chose since not everyone has a fancy dinner to attend over the weekend and sometimes have a show to watch instead. This is not a look limited to just a catching a concert though. I think it can easily work for just a night out.
I chose the Hudson Juliette Jeans in Bordeaux (click here) for their unique style. The front zip adds interest to the otherwise generic concert look, I believe. I would say to wear them unzipped and have the jeans just naturally fall over the Dylana + Natalie Suarez x Modern Vice JETT Jodhpur boots. To continue the grungy vibe of the look, I chose a Ksubi Muscle Shirt and Leather Jacket. I then finished it off with a beanie by Rick Owens. How many of you would wear this look to a show?
When Lorna first showed me these Paige Skyline Ankle Peg in Citron Destruction, my first initial thought was that I need to style them. It is rare to see such a vibrant, fresh pair for the Fall/Winter season, but Paige made them appropriate for the season by adding some distressing to keep them new. For the two looks, I went with styles that were very layered. Just because they are bright, it doesn’t mean they can’t work for right now.
The first look is the simple layering approach. There is something about a long coat that I find to be the chicest thing. You can easily throw it over anything and look put together. I wanted to have the look be warm without adding a ton of bulk. With the Rag & Bone t shirt and Topshop coat, I am sure you will stay warm and look smart. The look doesn’t end there though. I chose the Jeffrey Campbell France boots as I thought the color was a great compliment to the brightness of the jeans.
If a coat and long sleeves isn’t warm enough for you, then this look will sure keep you warm this season. I paired the jeans together with a leather jacket and cardigan by Topshop, a T by Alexander Wang t shirt, and Rag & bone boots. I have always been a fan of layering longer pieces under leather or bomber jackets. Something about the juxtaposition of it, that I find, looks very comfortable. Almost like a security blanket feeling. I chose a heeled boot to keep you looking long and not swallowed by a long sweater. What are your thoughts of these looks? Which one is your favorite?
For this weeks Weekend Going Out Look, I chose a pair of Acne’s Needle High Rise Skinny jeans. I picked these because I really liked the high rise style and blue wash. Since these have such a great high waist, I chose this cropped leather blouse from Tibi to pair them with. I think this is a fun way to wear the crop top trend without letting too much skin show and the detailing on the back is a nice touch.
Because the blouse is such a great blank slate, I added a bright necklace from Lulu Frost for J Crew, these L.A.M.B Oxley Pumps in Wine, and finished the look with this simple black Alexander Wang Clutch.
