It’s been a while since the last time I did a styling post of multiple ways to wear a piece of denim. For this, I decided to try something different and went for a jacket instead of a pair of jeans, so I chose the J Brand Denim jacket in Atomic (which you can get here). I decided to style this jacket dressier as we usually see denim jackets worn with summer dresses or baggy trousers regularly. I think cleaning it up will make the post more refreshing to see and read.
For the first look (my favorite) I wanted to go for something that will work more for night or for day if you are a dressy day type of person. It can easily go from day to night though. I paired the jacket with a Helmut Lang skirt, a Rick Owens DRKSHDW t shirt, and a pair of Lanvin sandals. I’d say to wear the shirt loosely tucked into the skirt and rolling the sleeves up to look like a muscle t will help this outfit stay looking put together for when you decide to take the jacket off. When wearing with the jacket, I think, having it thrown on over your shoulders will dress up the jacket and still keep you looking chic instead of casual.
This is the most flirty look out of the three. I can see quite a few girls wearing an outfit like this. I paired the jacket with a Chloe tank top, a Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony skirt, and a pair of Repetto flats. For this look, I would say wear the shirt tucked into the skirt and just throw on the flats and jacket over your shoulders. I also think that you can also switch the flats out for a pair of nude pumps for a night out and wear the jacket buttoned up all the way to keep it from looking too sweet.
This is the most modest look of the three. One that I think a lot of girls will love once they have it on, but are hesitant to try it out when hearing about it. I put the jacket together with a Chloe Skirt, T by Alexander Wang Muscle Shirt, and some Giuseppe Zanotti heels. What I like most about this look is the color combination. The yellow plays really well with the turquoise and pale blue of the jacket. I would say, like the previous two looks, tuck the shirt into the skirt and wear the jacket buttoned up all the way. Wearing the jacket buttoned up will add a different type structure and edge to the look than the usual leather jacket that is normally paired with outfits like this.
We got asked to style the new Citizens of Humanity Rocket Leatherette Jeans in Vamp Red. I got really excited when I saw that these were the jeans chosen. Since I first saw them, I thought they were really extraordinary. For the styling, I was caught in between making a full-on head-to-toe red look or to color block. I decided to go semi full-on red so looking at the post won’t be too harsh on the eyes.
I paired the jeans with a Blue Life Boardwalk Best Bum Tee in Scarlet Fever, an Elizabeth and James Plaid Wrapped Boyfriend Shirt, some Jeffrey Campbell Taro Fringe Boots, and a Vanessa Mooney Cage Cuff. I would say the best way to wear this look is to tie the plaid shirt around the waist. That will help break up the red on red a bit, but wearing it as a shirt works just as well. Wearing it this way will also help dress down the look of the boots as well. I chose the boots just to add a bit more of a boho flair, but one that does not drab the look like a shorter heel can. The cuff was chosen because I think red and gold tones work really well together and I thought this one was a perfect fit. You can find all these pieces at SINGER22 by clicking the links above and here for the jeans.
For our second styling post for SSENSE this month, I got to style a jean of my choice from their entire selection. I chose the J Brand Super Skinny jeans in Veruca because I think they are such a classic pair. You can literally go in any direction with your outfit as they make a great base to start with.
Since it’s summer, I wanted to go down the route of having fun with bright colours and cool designs, so I paired the jeans with this bright orange Theyskens’ Theory Orange Franky Bruna Blouse and I added a pop of bright pink with this Proenza Schouler Medium Pink PS1 Satchel. To give some height and leg length, I went with the Giuseppe Zanotti Black Suede Jem Wedges because I think they look like so much fun! The missing heel would give the impression your legs look longer from the side and the ankle strap will help keep them secure on your feet. Now for the accessories, I chose an I Adorn U Las Vegas Brass Necklace (not available on SSENSE) to add some cheekiness to the look and a Alexander McQueen Gold Spiral Skull and Stone bracelet to make it more edgy. I finished the outfit off with rag & bone’s Dark Tortoise Ridley sunglasses to make it more casual. I think the cat eye shape pulls it together nicely! This is definitely an outfit that I would wear myself! All of these pieces are available to buy at SSENSE and some are ON SALE!
I was really excited by the chance to get to style these rag & bone Jodhpur jeans in Chester for SINGER22. Jodhpur style jeans have been trendy for the past few seasons and will also be great for fall. One thing that I love about this pair is that the contrasting fabric is leather and extends all the way down the leg so it is a more modern, rather than literal, take on the look.
I really liked the feminine print on this Mara Hoffman Blouse and how it looked with the black leather. To keep the outfit on the edgier side, I chose these black Sam Edelman Lorissa pumps with studs on the back. I love the contrast of the studs with the more feminine blouse and leather of the jeans. Because the outfit has so many details, I wanted to keep the accessories more streamlined. I chose this Low Luv x Erin Wasson Sliver Armor Knuckle ring, which coordinates with the studs of the shoes, and topped the outfit off with these retro House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea Cat Eye Sunglasses. I think these accessories help keep the look feminine with an edge.
