For our J Brand post this month, the team asked me to style their Grayson cargo pant in three different washes: Vintage Grey, Vintage Natural and White. I thought I would do things a little differently with this post and show you how versatile cargo pants can actually be. I chose a girly look with wedges, a casual look with sneakers, and then a chic look with flats. Each of these outfits look great with the Grayson cargo and it proves just how easy they are to wear. The looks are polished and feminine, yet casual and effortless.
For my first outfit above, I styled the Grayson in Vintage Grey with some beige and metallic wedges, an oversized white shirt, a beige YSL clutch and gold bangles to finish it off. I can definitely see this look being worn on a summer day, perhaps out shopping or to lunch with some friends. The outfit is free-flowing yet cohesive, making it the perfect option for elevated daywear.
For my second, I styled the Grayson in White more casually. When I saw the white cargo pants, I immediately thought: heeled sneakers and pastel tones. I paired the pant with Isabel Marant sneakers, a Rebecca Minkoff pink Mini Mac, a Wildfox sweater, and accessorized with sunglasses and a necklace. I love how toned-down and casual this outfit is. I could definitely see this on someone like Jessica Alba or Alessandra Ambrosio.
For my final look, I styled the Grayson in Vintage Natural with a chic twist. I chose to pair the cargo with contrasting flats, an oversized brown cardigan, and accessorized with a Michael Kors watch and bag. This is definitely something I envision for someone working in a fashionable office. The look reminds me of what Olivia Palermo might wear. Even though they are comfortable cargo pants, they can still be dressed up and work place appropriate.

As you know, I recently reviewed these Paige Edgemont skinny jeans in Black & White Stripes. I love them so much, I decided to use them as the staple in my weekend going out look this week! I wanted to style them differently this time though and go for a chic, yet casual outfit that can be worn for a days shopping or lunch out with the girls.
I paired the jeans with a H&M White Shirt, so they remain the focal point and the tops easy on the eye. I added a Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Bag and Tory Burch Flats, both in a tan colour, just to add some contrast and ease to the black and white tones, not to mention I really like those three colours together! I then accessorized the look with a Lovely Braided Floppy Hat in burgundy for some colour and some Ray-Ban Aviators, both of which tone it down, giving it that chic vibe! I would definitely style these jeans this way, I’m going to the next time I wear them!
This week I chose a pair of the Genetic Shya Skinny jeans in Solaris for my Weekend Going Out Look. They are a classic blue skinny that is versatile for any occasion, so I opted for something that was casual and had a boho vibe.
I feel nothing goes better with blue than another shade of blue. Whether it be a denim shirt or a bed jacket like this one here by Zara, you cannot go wrong when pairing them together. As the jacket is printed, I didn’t want a shirt that was busy. This slouchy gray tank by Kain is just perfect to keep the boho vibe going. I chose this Zara braided belt because I just love the look of braided belts. They work with every casual look perfectly. I then finished it off with some Chloe ankle boots to help toughen up the free spirit vibe a bit, but it doesn’t feel heavy because of the color. So how many of you are looking forward to trying a look like this for the upcoming weekend?
DL1961 asked us to style their classic Amanda Skinny in Madison. With the wash being one that is timeless, the styling can pretty much go anywhere. I chose to do a look that is simple with pieces that, I feel, many women would already own.
I chose The Perfect Shirt by Current/Elliott with the Kinsey Boots and Caleigh Tank by Rag & Bone. I then accessorized the look with the Vanessa Mooney Enchanter Cuff and Saint Laurent Bo Sac de Jour Box Tote. I say wear the denim shirt unbuttoned to show off the laser cuts in the shirt and cuffed at the sleeves. The eyelets at the bottom help keep the outfit feeling feminine and less tomboy. Now all you need is a quick messy side braid to finish off the look.
