For this weeks “Going Out” look, I chose the Big Star Avalon High Rise Skinny in Halcyon. There is something about acid/bleach washed jeans at the moment that I am just loving. It may be the thrill of the search for something out of the usual clean blues and prints.
This pair here is one of my favorites that has come out over the years. They don’t feel dated and are easy to style for a day look or for going out as they work just as well with neutrals as they do with vibrant colors, like a red. I went the neutral route and styled them with a vintage Chanel jacket, a tank by Ksubi, sandals by Saint Laurent and finished it with a necklace by Isabel Marant. So how many of you are looking forward to trying out acid washed jeans again?
For my weekend going out look, I wanted to style a look around a great pair of denim shorts. I think a well fitting pair of denim shorts is an essential for any wardrobe. I chose these Victoria Beckham denim shorts because I like the darker wash with slight distressing and I like that they have a slouchier fit.
I paired them with this Proenza Schouler striped tee because it is a great classic piece that can be worn a ton of different ways. I chose these studded Chloe Susanna boots because I love the stud details on them and thought they make a great point of interest in the outfit. I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal because when it gets hot, I usually can’t be bothered to wear a lot of accessories, but I liked the impact of these Margiela rings. Lastly, I finished with this cow printed structured bag from Givenchy.
I feel as though leather pants have become season-less and that you can wear them anytime throughout the year with just a bit of tweaking here and there. Two people that come to mind are Miranda Kerr and Rosie Hunting-Whiteley, who are constantly caught in their leather trousers with everything from knits to lightweight tanks.
One of the new leather pants that I just get more fond of each day are the J Brand Nicola Leather Pants, which were just released. They have ribbing on the knees, which is new for J Brand. They are a brand that has never really ventured into heavy details, but these are strong, yet still feel subtle, while keeping true to the evolving J Brand soul.
For this look, I wanted to go for something very prim and show that leather pants don’t always have to be styled edgy. I paired them with a shirt by Topshop, flats by Repetto, and a bag from Marni. I then finished it off with sunglasses by Linda Farrow. I would say that this look is heavily influenced by Miranda Kerr’s personal style; she is someone who has styling leather pants in a very feminine, yet smart way, down packed.
For this weeks styling post, I wanted to do a denim vest instead of a pair of jeans. As it’s been so hot over here at the moment, I haven’t been able to wear jeans for a while without feeling like I am melting, so currently I am inspired by summer dresses and flowy clothing, to keep me cool.
I started with this Superdry Broderie White Summer Dress as my base item as I think the white is perfectly cool for summer and the dress is really easy wearing. Pairing dresses with denim vests is always something I like to do, which is why I chose this Rag & Bone Burney Denim Vest in Tattered Destroy. I think the wash of it suits the dress really well. I kept the rest of the outfit in a neutral colour palette, but very girly, so I went for these Charlotte Russe Wedges, a beautiful Oscar de la Renta Lace Gold Bracelet for one wrist and a MANGO Touch Snake Chains Bracelet for the other with a Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Rose Gold Watch. I opted for a little Crescent Moon Charm Necklace to add a little flare to the dress and finally finished it all off with some Ray-Ban Gold Aviators. This is definitely something I would wear to the park or for a picnic!
