I went to the beach this past weekend and in a way, I got inspired by it. I wanted to do a look that you can lounge in after running around the beach and be comfortable. Boyfriend jeans always come to mind when I think of that type of mood and these R13 Boyfriend Jeans in Selvedge Blue Shredded offer an easy vibe that is still cool with the slight cropped fit and distressing.
As it is a lounge look, I wanted to keep everything pretty breezy. I paired the jeans with a white chambray shirt by TOPSHOP because boyfriend jeans and a button up are pretty much best friends. I then chose the shoes of the moment, Birkenstocks, as wearing any other style of shoe besides sandals would not be ideal. Then to finish the look off, a Rolex as you can wear it since you are just hanging and a TOPSHOP backpack to carry all your essentials. How many of you are planning to hang at the beach this weekend?
My weekend going out look this week features the Current/Elliott The Stiletto Pencil Skirt in Shredded. I’ve been a huge fan of the denim pencil skirt trend for a while and think they can look so chic when worn right. They can look mature rather than young and sophisticated, not trashy.
For this look, I paired the skirt with a 7 For All Mankind Denim Shirt which I would wear tucked in. I then chose these Brian Atwood Sema Wedges to give the look some ease. To add some brightness, I went with a Victoria Beckham Yellow Tote and a Yellow Statement Necklace. I then went for some Debutante Pearl Stud Earrings, a EF Collection Arrow Ring, a Adina by Adina Reyter Star Ring and a pair of Victoria Beckham Aviators. I would definitely wear this look in the day time!
When I saw this J. Crew chambray tunic, I knew I wanted to style an outfit around it. I love the detail of the embroidery and think it is a really versatile piece that can be worn over a swimsuit or dressed up for night. I styled a look that I think can work for day or night.
I chose these Tory Burch leather shorts because I love that they look striped, but are actually snakeskin print, which I think adds a bit of edge. For shoes, I chose these chunky heeled fringe sandals from Tod’s because the chunkier heel dresses down the look and the fringe adds some texture. For accessories, I chose these cat eye sunglasses from Kamali Kulture and I thought this Furla Candy bag added a playful touch.
Denim is easy; it goes with anything and can be dressed up or down pretty much taking you from day to night or from party to party. Sometimes the “dressing it up” part can be difficult because it isn’t always just slapping on a pair of heels. Here are three ways to dress up your denim for those fun Summer parties.
