I chose these FRAME Le Skinny Leather Pants in Washed black because I loved seeing them on Reese Witherspoon this past week, but wanted to style a cozier, more casual look around them. I chose this gray sweater from Helmut Lang because the cropped length really shows off the pants. For accessories, I chose this M2Malletier python clutch because it adds a nice touch of color and texture, plus I love the unique shape. I finished with a bit more texture from these velvet loafers from Cantarelli and a chunky gold chain necklace from Adia Kibur.
I wanted to choose a pair of jeans that were a bit different from the usual classic cut and the Slash jeans by Hudson are just that. The exposed zip and the lace-ups on the side add a cool vibe to them that is edgy and modern. The details standout, yet being kept tonal to the wash of the jeans, it keeps them versatile and can take you from chic to something more casual. See the three ways I styled them below.
I wanted to take these jeans to a more feminine route with this look here, something that is very prim. I chose to pair the jeans with a t shirt by Rag & Bone and boots by Saint Laurent. I then added a few feminine touches to the look with a coat by Scotch & Soda and a Vita Fede cuff to finish it all off.
I wanted to go for something that was a little in between with this look here. Something that still felt chic while still having a casual sense. Pairing the jeans with an old school pair of Adidas Superstars was the first thought. The cropped fit along with the details gives off a Parisian chic vibe when paired with the sneakers. As I am not the biggest fan of pairing together white shoes with a white top, I went for a black men’s t-shirt by Theory for the slouch that it’ll offer. Then to pull it all together and take it away from casual, a long tailored coat by TOPSHOP.
This is the most casual of the looks, but unlike most of the my other takes on casual, I chose a pair of Sam Edelman ballet flats as the shoe of choice. We don’t see much of them lately and I find that they play off the jeans really well. To keep that casual/Marant-feel going, I chose a slouchy sweater by TOPSHOP (similar) and a woven belt by Caputo & Co.. Then to finish the look, a heavy knit scarf by White + Warren to keep the chill away.
-From running errands to heading to a meeting, how many of you are looking to update your classic looks with a pair like these?
I am such a fan of a high rise skinny at the moment and when the proportions of them are right, like the Sophie in Luxe by A GOLD E, I could not be more elated. These are the perfect pair to style a look that is casual yet chic like this look here.
I chose a heavy knit sweater by Rag & Bone to pair with the jeans. One thing I love about this season is all the heavy knit sweaters. They can take the simplest pair of jeans to feeling a bit Parisian chic. For shoes, I wanted something classic, like these navy suede Vans. They add just enough color to the look, in my opinion. For finishers, a hat by Etudes and one of my favorite backpacks to hit the market by Elizabeth and James. The backpack definitely elevates the look to something cooler. How many of you are pairing your knits with jeans right now?
For my weekend look, I wanted to style something a bit grungier than what I normally do. I chose these R13 relaxed skinny jeans because I love the shreds and the more slouchy skinny fit. For a top, I chose this oversize plaid boyfriend shirt from Band of Outsiders. The boyfriend fit would look nice loosely tucked into the jeans. I like the toughness of these Diesel combat boots and the ankle straps. For accessories, I chose this Rag & Bone fedora for a bit of color and this dark, vampy lip color from Smashbox. Lastly, I finished with a bit of a feminine touch, with these pearl studs from Kate Spade.
