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.
Vintage looks will always be in fashion and they’ve had longevity for a reason. They’re timeless and classic and are always a great look to revert back to. The following denim pieces have stayed in style, have come in and out of style or have reinvented themselves, but nonetheless, are all classic. Enjoy looks from the 70s, 80s and 90s for your Vintage inspired, denim outfits this Fall.
