I got a bit inspired by Barbara Martelo’s look here. Since I saw it, I could not think of any look that could be cooler to influence my idea for this post. I chose the Citizens of Humanity Rocket in Black Diamond as they are one of the best high waisted jeans out right now in my opinion. The proportion and position of the back pockets give the back a flattering look instead of a dated mom’s vibe that others tend to lean towards.
As the boots are pretty much irreplaceable, I chose the exact boots as Barbara’s by Saint Laurent. I then chose a jacket from Topshop, a t shirt from Organic by John Patrick, and finished it with a belt by Isabel Marant. You can even take that Barbara Martelo look even further by topping it all off with some classic Ray-Bans. What are you readers looking forward to this weekend?
My weekend going out look this time is something more classic and suitable for an evening out. I decided to go with a rich dark blue skinny jean as a base and opted for the J Brand 620 Power Stretch skinny jeans in Indigo. I then paired them with the Topshop burgundy spot shirt to give it a bit of colour and layered a black blazer from Topshop over the top to smarten things up. I chose a pair of Christian Louboutin studded Pigalle heels to add some edge to the look and then finished it off with a sleek black clutch from Stella McCartney and rings by Boticca and Marc by Marc Jacobs. I would definitely wear something like this for an evening! Would you?
Distressed jeans will never go out of style and as of now, wearing them year-round is the thing to do. One of my favorites would have to be the Current/Elliott Stiletto in Black Shredded. The slightly washed black was given more interest with shreds that add just enough to keep them from feeling ordinary and feeling too much. Check out the three ways I styled them below.
When it comes to comfort without looking like you just rolled out of bed, adding a cardigan is the best thing to pair with your jeans. I found the color of this one from Topshop to work really well with the wash of the jeans. To compliment the sweater even more, I chose a bag from Chloe that is in the same color scheme. I then kept everything else simple with a pair of Chucks and a muscle shirt from Current/Elliott.
Depending on your height, these jeans will be either be on the more cropped side or hit just below the ankle. This makes them pretty much perfect to pair with some slip on sneakers for anyone. As this look is pretty much monochromatic (with the grey t shirt by T by Wang and accessories by American Apparel and Alexander Wang), I decided to add some life with some leopard print with the Schutz sneakers. Leopard sneakers are just the perfect way to update an all black look…or one that is mostly.
Dressing up these jeans slightly is not hard either, when you think in a Paris Vogue editor sense. The ladies that run the mag love Current/Elliott and have been seen in them many times, so who else to get inspired by than them? Other than skinny jeans, their staples include a clean sweater like this one by Equipment and some wrap sandals like these by Isabel Marant. Then there are the accessories. As it is still Winter, a scarf like this Marc by Marc one is necessary and another staple, a classic belt like this Marant to finish it all off.
I love flares for spring, so I chose to style my weekend going out look around a pair of MiH Marrakesh jeans. I really love the great indigo blue color of this wash and wanted to use that as the main point of color for the outfit. In addition to the flare leg, these also have a great high waist rise so, I chose a cropped sweatshirt from Maison Martin Margiela, to really show it off.
To keep it casual, I chose these Miu Miu pointed toe brogues since I love how pointed toe shoes look peeking out of a flare leg. I kept the accessories simple but added some metallic accents with this Saint Laurent zipper bag and gold Alexander McQueen necklace. Lastly, I finished with these Oliver Peoples sunglasses.
