Labor Day is tomorrow, so we thought it might be nice to each style a look centered around white, using white denim of course. We don’t usually do Labor Day looks, but we thought it might make a nice change! We have 2 women’s ensembles here and 1 guys outfit, featuring a skinny jean, a pair of shorts and a tapered fit for men, so there should be a look here for everyone! Happy Labor Day!
For my Labor Day outfit, I wanted something really casual and easy, but still chic. I decided to style the Paige Denim Verdugo skinny jeans in White as they are one of the most non see through white jeans I have tried. I paired them with an Equipment white sleeveless shirt to keep the all white theme. For my shoes, I went with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle in Nude to keep things clean and then chose some brown accessories in the form of a Michael Kors tote and a tan belt, just to break up the white on white. I wanted to add just a tiny bit of colour, so I opted for a Hipanema bracelet and then two cool rings with a star and pineapple on them!
Since Labor Day has that saying of it being the last day of the year to wear white, I decided to do a look that was mostly in that theme. I chose the Nudie Thin Finn in White Noise to be paired with a collarless N.Hoolywood shirt. The shirt has a sense that elevates a look that I find even the classic white button up doesn’t. I then kept the accessories simple with some grey suede shoes by John Varvatos and a watch by Tsovet to help break the look up a bit. So how many of you guys are planning on donning all white this holiday?
For my Labor Day outfit I wanted to style a look that would be a great transitional outfit as temperatures start to cool down. I chose this white Rebecca Taylor punched denim skirt because I love the punched detail all over it and it has a great summery vibe. I like the way this pale pink Toteme Rocha silk blouse lightened the whole outfit up and gave it a very feminine feel. I layered this army jacket from Black Five over the outfit, which would be great for slipping on over the blouse when the weather starts to cool down. I also chose this Kenneth Jay Lane coin necklace for a nice bit of glam and then finished with these plain white Vans and this suede Proenza Schouler bag.
As Jonathan mentioned last week, the old adage that you can’t wear white after Labor Day doesn’t hold true (I love winter whites!) but in honor of the last official weekend of Summer, I thought I’d style my look around a white pair of shorts.
I chose these Isabel Marant Embroidered shorts because the embroidery is very summery. I then opted for a slouchy white tank from The Row and thought this knit sweater from Mango would be perfect for throwing over the tank when the temperatures drop. For accessories, I chose these pale peach wedge slides from Balenciaga because I think they’re a great complement to the white shorts without detracting from them. I finished the look with these light brown sunglasses and these delicate rose gold earrings from Monique Pean.
Even during this heatwave we have been having here in Los Angeles, I have been thinking with a Fall/Winter sense when it comes to styling. White jeans are a piece that can easily transition from season to season now. They are no longer a staple for the Summer. I chose the Paige Denim Edgemont in Optic White for the hardware that they have and I think that it helps take the classic style to a seasonless territory.
The jeans are paired with an R13 sweater from their new collection. I love that they have taken the classic striped sweater and shredded it up to fit in with the soul of the line. Then for the accessories, I opted for timeless pieces that enhance the overall grunge vibe that comes off when the jeans and sweater are paired together. Some Saint Laurent boots to help keep the look tough, a scarf by ACNE, and the always eternal classic Ray-Ban wayfarers to finish it all off.
I became a huge fan of the 3×1 High Rise Channel Seam in Black No. 5 ever since I saw Jessica Alba wearing them. From the faded black wash to the cut, the style has become one of my new favorite high rise styles to get a sighting of. Not to mention the seam details at the inseam that adds a little something to make them stand out amongst the other brands, which is why I chose them to style 3 different ways this month. You can see the three looks below.
This look here was inspired by the Kate Moss circa 2007 time of when she used to wear cowboy boots with just about every look that she was wearing. I mean everything from pairings with leather jackets to even her smartest pieces like a blazer. I went for the latter by choosing one from TOPSHOP. A Moss look cannot be without a cool graphic tee and a cool hat, so I chose a shirt by Uniqlo and a hat by Janessa Leone. Then of course the western inspired shoes to complete the look by Ariat. The worn leather and embossing add a little more detail to the outfit that is subtle.
I always like to do a casual look, though something that can still be presentable with the help of a few luxurious pieces. Those pieces that help elevate are these Saint Laurent boots and a leather jacket by R13. They can take anything like this Diesel hoodie and Isabel Marant scarf from just being the average look to a level that will have any street style photographer snapping a shot.
These jeans and western boots seem to be the combination that I just find perfect, you can tell by the previous look. This one is no different. This time I chose a pair by Frye to style with a MiH shirt. I like the darker more autumn feel of this plaid and find that it works really well with the color of the boots. To finish the look off, a piece that I have going back to myself, a beanie (this one by Isabel Marant), and a Givenchy bag.
