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.
SSENSE asked us to style a pair of jeans of our choice and I chose the rag & bone High Rise Skinny in Red. The main reason why I chose these jeans is the color. It is just amazing. I also think they will look fresh for Summer. Since the weather is really warm/borderline boiling, I wanted to keep everything lightweight and simple. I paired the jeans with a T by Alexander Wang Pocket Tank, the Givenchy Wooden Sharktooth Necklace and a pair of shoes from the new APC x Nike collection (not available at SSENSE).
If I were a girl, I’d probably wear the tank half tucked at the front towards the side of the jeans. I think the tuck would make the look more put together than just a tank and jeans, even though it is. I would cuff the jeans up to about a few inches above the ankle to show some leg, but not too much because they are high-tops. Showing that little bit of skin at the ankle just makes the look more Summer, I believe. I chose the Givenchy necklace because I just love that necklace and it adds some more earth tones to the look, which I think goes really well with red.

This styling post is on the Diesel Thavar in 801C for New York Speed. I find that many guys tend to go very simple regularly, especially during the Summer. So I decided to go for a very classic casual look, like the streets of Milan. I paired the jeans with a House of Howe shirt, G-Star shoes, and G-Star Jacket.
This is how I would wear this look. I would cuff the jeans to right above the rim of the shoes. Being on the medium/lighter side, I think, it would look more appropriate that way. I really think that you cannot go wrong with a military jacket. It can really make a look more put together without dressing it up too much. I think cuffing the sleeves would help keep your body stay cool without sacrificing style. Being Summer, I don’t think anyone would want to be fully covered.

We thought it would be fun to put together a little styling post in time for the 4th of July. We each took a colour jean/short in red, white or blue, and styled our outfit around that, combining the 3 colours in each. It was a lot of fun and hopefully it might give you some inspiration for your 4th of July! What do you think of them?
I definitely had a great time doing this! Since I am not American myself, I went all out on this outfit making it as patriotic as I could. I chose to work with the J Brand Zoey Triple Zip Jeans in Lipstick because I love the bright red tone they have to them and the quirkiness of the zippers. I combined these jeans with a Topshop Structured White Blazer to add the white and a Splendid Navy Ribbed Tank Top to add the blue. The Vince Camuto Signature Prima Pumps compliment the blazer nicely by adding some more white and they also class it up because of the stiletto heel and pointed toe. If that wasn’t American Flag enough, I then added a Lacoste American Flag Tote and a Star Bracelet from Frills & Company to really set it off.
I think just by looking at this outfit, you can tell it’s American inspired and will definitely work well if you plan on going all out this 4th of July! I recently wore a red, white and blue outfit myself for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee since we share the same flag colours as you guys, so I had fun with that one too, although I had blue jeans, a white sweater and red bag, so it was a bit reversed. I would have loved to have worn something like this one though!
While I love dressing up, I prefer outfits that don’t look too themed. I chose these Current/Elliott Rolled skinny jeans in this light blue wash, which I thought would look really nice contrasted with red. The cropped fit is great for warmer weather and can be rolled up or down depending on which you prefer. I chose this strapless bustier top from Parker because I loved the red color and the detailing on the bodice. These Alaia studded leather sandals add both the touch of white to complete the theme but also add a bit of shine the the look. I finished it with these Elizabeth and James mixed metal bangles and this summery Lauren Merkin cork clutch.
When I think of jeans and summer together, I either think Siwy or lace-up shorts. I decided to go with the now classic Siwy Camilla in Snowstorm (click here to buy at Singer22) for this one. Since this is a 4th of July post, I decided to add some stars to the look. I chose the Stars T Shirt from Current/Elliott. Now for the accessories. To keep the sun away from your eyes I chose the Cat Eye Sunglasses by The Row. The beanie is by Rag & Bone (no longer available) and the bevy of bracelets are by Aurélie Bidermann, Kenneth Jay Lane, Alexander McQueen, Chan Luu (all available at Net-A-Porter). The rings are by Lanvin, Dannijo, and Pamela Love (all at SSENSE) and now finally the key piece to finish the look, shoes. I chose a simple pair of nude Lanvin flats from Net-A-Porter.
I decided to go with flats this time around because I think boots would be a bit expected and I think nude flats are a staple piece that every girl should have. I was thinking about choosing the pair with the chain ankle strap, but I think that would have been too much overkill with the embellishments when paired with all the jewelry. What I like about this look is that it is not just a look for the holiday. It can work just anytime in the summer or just everyday in California.
