I wanted to do something a little more fresh and clean for my weekend going out look this time around. I chose these AG Midi Ankle Length Raw Hem Jeans in White as I’m loving raw hems at the moment and white is the perfect colour to take into Spring. I wanted to keep things neutral, but only have a small pop of colour from accessories, so I chose the Chloe snow capsule sweater to go with the Sergio Rossi nude pumps. I then kept the beige tones going with a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour tote and these Stella McCartney sunglasses. Then to finish it off with these hints of colour that I mentioned, I chose this Citrine gemstone ring and some Isaac Mizzrahi red lipstick. What do you think of it?
When I saw the Free People Jolene Flares in White Indigo Stripe, I instantly wanted to do my ‘Weekend Look’ based around them. I love the vibe that they can give a look and they are an out of the box style compared to what I usually go for.
I decided to stick with the vintage vibe of the jeans, kind of like a modern Janis Joplin when it came to styling them. I started by pairing the jeans with a Motley Crue band tee as they help carry that just thrown on look that Janis is known for. I didn’t want to choose a pair of heels and opted to go for a simple pair of white slip-on Vans. Then to finish the look off, I didn’t want to go for the fur coats or fluid shawls that she is known for either, so I brought it into this time with a T by Alexander Wang trench coat. It streamlines the look without taking away from the inspiration, which I like.
What are your thoughts on striped flares and how many of you are willing to don them styled like this?
For ‘3 Looks’ this month, I wanted to work with the suede Paige High Rise Bell Canyon jeans. I find them to be one of the funnest styles of the new season and I just love the vintage feel yet modern cut. I also didn’t just want to choose one of the washes and opted to do looks with both the Black and Saddle Brown washes as though they are both suede, both have two completely different vibes going on. See the looks that I came up with below.
For the first look, I wanted to go for something clean and smart. Also something that was a bit of the season at the moment because though they are a spring style, they can work just as well for the colder months too.
To bring that look to life, I paired the pants with a sweater and coat by Stella McCartney. Then I wanted to bring in that slight western aesthetic that the Spring collection has going on with the Keegan belt that Paige just introduced to her roster. Then to finish the look off, I chose a simple pair of black pumps by Saint Laurent.
Now for the brown suede pair. To me, these have a ton of life to them, yet they can still read as a pair of corduroy jeans and be styled in the same easy casual way. Which is what I went for here, a look that feels of the time when summer is just about to hit.
I chose to pair the jeans with a Madewell shirt to start and then to keep the laid back summer attitude going I chose a pair of sandals, also by Madewell. As my accessories, I wanted to somehow bring in the ’70s vibe that the jeans give off with a bag by Cynthia Rowley, bracelet by Shashi and sunglasses by Matthew Williamson. They bring the ’70s to life without making the look feel dated and out of the history books.
I went for a more sleek approach for the first styling of these above, but I wanted to show that they also can be given a modern boho spin as well. I paired them with a shirt by Etoile Isabel Marant for the airy contrast they give to the suede of the pants. To keep the free spirit vibe going, I went for a saddle bag by Jerome Dreyfuss, then accessorized with some sunglasses by Thierry Lasry. But I wanted to add some luxe to the look and finished the look off with a pair of Gianvito Rossi boots and a cuff by Jennifer Fisher. They add just a hint of glam to the overall outfit that would otherwise read casual.
I chose these AMO Tomboy boyfriend jeans to style a really laid back and casual weekend going out look. I paired them with this striped tee from J Crew. For a warmer layer, I added this Acne shearling jacket to add a bit of toughness to the look. For accessories, I chose these bright red Aquazzura lace up flats for bold color, and finished with this slouchy gray tote from Tsatsas which is perfect for running errands or heading to brunch.
