Chances are if you’re on this blog, you’re a denim lover. This probably means you’d like to ditch the dress and wear your denim to all those holiday parties you got invited to this season, but want to make sure it’s still holiday-party-appropriate. This is where I come in. I have 4 holiday outfit ideas including key denim pieces that are comfortable and dressed up and will work with any type of party you’re headed to. Whether it’s searching in your closet or getting some shopping in, these outfits can be interchanged with the pieces you prefer/have already. Get the looks…
As it is Thanksgiving weekend, I wanted to do a look that was comfortable and on the athleisure side of dressing. We all will most likely still be dealing with the food comas of the holiday and this is a look that is still cool for the guys for whether you finally hit that hike or just want to be about town.
I chose the new Paige Jackson Joggers in Black Gravel to base the look around. They are one of my favorite pants that I own as they have the look of sweatpants, but the smartness of a chino. Not to mention that they have some edge to them with the zippers.
To bring in the athleisure, I paired them with simple staples that many guys would have similar pieces to in their closets. I went for a James Perse t shirt and sweater by Visvim, as they help bring in the cozy vibe. Then to bring in the sports sense, a pair of the Adidas Ultra Boosts and my favorite hat by Gents Co.. This is a look that I can see many guys wearing. How many of you are planning to keep it comfy this weekend?
I love both the wash and the unique twist hem of these AMO Twisted hem skinny jeans, so I chose to style them for my weekend going out look. First, I chose this dark plaid print shirt from Madewell to layer under this dark gray Linea Pelle moto jacket. For accessories, I chose these lace up Giuseppe Zanotti boots because the cropped length is perfect for a taller lace up bootie. Lastly, I finished the look with this navy Chloe Faye bag. I love how all of the darker colors work with the lighter indigo wash of the jeans, I think it keeps the look from being too dark and dramatic, and is perfect for a casual day out or a dinner date.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to something casual and perfect for running errands and shopping on Saturday or Sunday, in gloomy, wet England. It’s chilly here right now, but it’s not cold enough to warrant layering up on numerous coats, scarves and hats, so my outfit here, centered around the Citizens of Humanity Rocket high rise skinny jeans in Axel reflects that perfectly. I chose these jeans as the black skinny makes a great base and these are incredibly comfortable!
I paired the jeans with the iconic Chloe Susanna boots as these make a statement on their own, while looking chic and stylish. I wanted a bit of Autumnal colouring though so I chose this Hobbs Sara sweater in plum burgundy to spice it up a little and then for warmth, layered on a leather jacket, like this Saint Laurent leather biker jacket. To keep it from looking too dark and black though, I lightened the ensemble up with this Wallis beige tote to add some neutral tones to the mix. This is definitely something I would wear myself if I had the pieces! What do you think of it?
