I wanted to style something really fun and quirky for my weekend going out look this week. I’m really in the mood for wearing bright colours and colour blocking as Spring is here, so that was my inspiration behind this look! I started out with these gorgeous Rag & Bone Boyfriend jeans in Moss W Holes as I love the wash and rips, they are gorgeous! These are definitely on my wish list! They are slightly tapered and would look great with a small cuff at the hems!
I paired them with these fun Valentino Rockstud heels in neon yellow and a Rockstud neon blue tote also from the brand. To keep things light, I chose a Topshop mint ice cream sweater to go with the light blue wash. For the accessories, I opted for a Hipanema coloured bracelet, an Orelia arrow bangle, a floral watch and some Tom Ford aviators. I love this look and can definitely see it being worn by some fashion bloggers! Would you wear something like this?
White jeans are one of the most popular washes for warmer weather. There are tons of great styles in white washes that can be worn now and into the warmer weather. Check out how I styled some of the spring’s trendiest styles for now.
Flares are always huge for spring and summer, so my first look I styled around this pair of Hudson Ferris flares. I chose a floral printed bomber-style jacket from Maison Scotch because the floral print adds a great hint of pattern and pops against the white. I finished with green rounded-toe pumps from Sergio Rossi, a structured navy cross body bag from Givenchy, and an oversize gemstone ring from Moonstone. This look could transition to summer easily by swapping the heels for sandals or wedges and adding a tank under the jacket.
Another huge trend this season is overalls. I think white overalls is my favorite take on the trend, as they look a bit more sophisticated than regular indigo washes. I layered a slim fitting gray turtleneck from Banjo & Matilda under these Frame overalls, with a maroon calf hair moto-jacket from J Crew for a little bit of texture. I finished with these check printed Vans slip-ons and fun patterned sunglasses from Kenzo. This look could easily be updated for warmer weather by switching the turtleneck for a tee and cuffing the overalls for a shorter length.
One of my favorite ways to wear white jeans is in a monochromatic look. Something about all white pieces look so fresh to me. I styled an all white look around these skinny jeans from Paige, adding a slouchy tee from Mango and white blazer from Helmut Lang. To keep the look light, I finished with a pair of scalloped nude flats from Chloe and a simple gold bangle from Kate Spade. Lastly, for a little bit of texture and color, I added this fringed bag from Paula Cademartori. Transition this look into warmer weather by swapping out the slouchy tee for a tank and flats for a gladiator sandal.
The Drop Crotch jeans are just one of the many forward thinking pairs that R13 have to offer for Spring. You may have remembered the post on the black plaid pair not too long ago, but these pants also come in a worn blue denim, as well as red plaid. As choosing just one of those pairs was hard, I decided to style each pair here.
The Black Plaid pair would have to be my favorite out of the three pairs here. The choice of plaid and the color all work seamlessly and feels fluid. With this pair I got that Yōji Yamamoto and Commes des Comme des Garçons feel that I said before, but I also get this Haider Ackermann sense a bit as well, depending on how they are styled. When paired with more streamlined and edgier pieces, they definitely take on a similar aesthetic to Ackermann. I chose to pair them with a leather blazer by a Band of Outsiders and boots by Haider (similar). Then as those pieces are very strong, I wanted to go clean with other pieces like this La Garçonne Moderne and a simple white t shirt (similar here).
As the denim pair of these has more of an easier feel than the plaids, I went for something very easy with a slight Eastern Orient feel as it is the vibe that it first gave off to me when I saw them. As blue denim is easier than a black pair, I went with a Steven Alan wrap cardigan over a more structured wrap jacket. I then chose sandals by Lanvin because the cropped fit works really well with multi-strap sandals and kept the top simple with a tank by La Garçonne Moderne. To finish off the look, I chose rings by Margiela.
This pair in Red Plaid feels the most street out of the three. They can easily be paired with flat boots, I actually think they are best worn with them, and a belt like these by Rag & Bone and Karl Lagerfeld. As they feel edgier, I went with a tougher shirt like this muscle by R13. I then chose a jacket by ACNE to pull the whole look together.
-Which pair are you interested in trying?
It’s St. Patrick’s Day today and we all thought it might be good to do some outfits which were inspired by the green theme! Not many people tend to wear green jeans or too much green in general, but there are plenty of ways that you can incorporate it into your outfit! The most popular shade of green lately is mint! It’s one of the best to wear for Spring as it’s so fresh and light, while something like olive or khaki is better suited to Winter. Each of us has styled our own take on a green outfit; 2 women’s looks include jeans, 1 doesn’t and the other is a guys outfit. Are you wearing green today?
My outfit above is something classic which includes a lot of green without being too over the top. I have a lot of Irish family and am part Irish myself, so I had fun doing this outfit! I chose a pair of DL1961 green skinny jeans as I loved the colour of them, it’s really intense. I paired them with a lace crochet top and nude heels to keep the green jeans as the focal point. For my accessories, I wanted to have a statement making necklace and found this amazing green one! I think it just adds a bit more femininity to the look while making a statement. I then chose a floral watch by Olivia Burton to freshen things up, a clover inspired peridot ring and then a mint coloured bag to keep things light.
