For this styling post I decided to choose the Ksubi Van Winkle jeans in Wild Dog (click here to purchase) for the men. I thought choosing black would be a great choice so I can add a print or different texture to the looks without it looking busy. For the two outfits, I went for casual looks for both Winter and Fall.
The first look, I’d say, is the Winter look. Each look revolves around the jeans, but when I saw these Opening Ceremony shoes I was trying to figure out how I can incorporate them into an outfit and still add different textures without it leaning towards a mess. The only option I could think of was to keep it monochrome. I didn’t want to pair the jeans with just a plain t shirt as I wanted to break up all of the black, so I chose this Tailgate Clothing Co. t shirt. To add some interesting detail without going overboard, I chose this Alexander McQueen coat as the combo of the leather and wool, I find, plays really well with the jeans and shoes.
For the Fall look, I wanted it to be casual and still be a look that you don’t have to change out of if you decide to go out for a dinner. I also didn’t want the look to be monochrome, like the previous. I paired the jeans with a J. Crew cardigan, Tailgate Clothing Co. t shirt, and some Opening Ceremony Desert Boots. The boots and cardigan together help smarten the look up, but being that it is a cardigan, you would still look comfortable. Like always you can click the names of each item to purchase them for yourself.
We’re starting a new feature on DenimBlog, where we will be styling a pair of jeans for a weekend going out look each Thursday.
I love these J Brand Noir Purple skinny jeans. The purple color is really a popular shade for fall and I thought these would be a fun pair to dress up for a weekend out. I really love this color paired with gold, so I chose this gold Rebecca Taylor leather Bustier Top. Since the blouse is so bold, I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal with these Dara Ettinger stud earrings. I also accessorized with a leopard print Alexander Wang clutch and these Charlotte Olympia Dolly Platform Pumps. Do you like the look?
I decided to do a “3 Ways to Wear…” post for the guys this time. Since it is the first one, I thought “why not go all out and do some man leather?”, so I chose the new J Brand Tyler in Black Leather (click here to buy) as the first one to style. Being that these are black, they are much easier to wear. I am sure that the guys that have these would have no issue finding anything to pair with them.
This look here is probably the most representative of me. Just a fitted sweater, fitted shirt, fitted pants, and some sneakers that go with everything. Plus it is all black, which is what I usually wear everyday. I paired the pants with a Balenciaga Egyptofunk Sweater, a T by Alexander Wang T Shirt, and some Air Yeezy II. What I like most about this look is that you still look dressed up and put together, but still comfortable. It is one that is just so clean. If you are looking to spruce up the look even more, I say a fitted cap would be the best thing to add to the look.
The cold weather look. I have to add one of these, due to the fact that it is the actual season to wear a look like this. I paired the pants with a Silent by Damir Doma Coat, T by Alexander Wang Shirt, and some YSL Sneakers. Being that there is no print in any of the pieces, I found adding a pair of shoes that had detail wouldn’t be overboard. Since the shoes are higher cut, I say to have them loosely tucked into the show. In other words, a sloppy tuck. It will help bring out the grunge factor of the look even more.
This is the most casual of the looks. Probably one that you can wear to the grocery store…well maybe that is just me. I put the pants together with a Mugler Sweater, T by Alexander Wang Shirt, and some TOMS. To keep this look from looking like you just rolled out of the bed and threw on whatever was on the floor, I say to wear everything fitted and have the sweater a bit more loose. The details give off the illusion that it is more fitted, so I think you can get away with wearing it looser. Also if the weather decides to warm up you have an equally great casual look by just pairing the shirt, pants and TOMS.
