Let’s face it, the best part about going back to school is your first week of outfits. Chances are your mom/grandma took you shopping, or you went with your friends, and your outfit game is strong for your first day back. If you ran out of time this year or maybe you weren’t inspired, the crew at Denim Blog has got you covered. Below are 5 outfits you can recreate within your closet or with the new set of clothes you got for the new school year, but don’t limit yourself to the first day, you can wear these outfits all year long. What’s your style on the first day?
I’ve had such a crush on the Citizens of Humanity Corey Slouchy slim jeans lately, I decided to style my weekend going out look around them. Since Fall is just around the corner, I wanted to style a look that would transition to colder weather really well.
First, I chose this contrast tee from Topshop that has a slightly cropped fit. It would also be great to transition by throwing on a leather jacket or blazer. Next, I chose these Tory Burch mules because I love how the color blocking adds color to the look. For my other accessories, I wanted to add a bit more color and chose these Illesteva Leonard II Sunglasses in red, and then finished the look with this brown cross body bag from Vince, and a bit of shine with this gold cuff from Kenneth Jay Lane.
I’ve done quite a few casual looks for my weekend outfits lately and I wanted to do something a little dressier. It wont be long before we are already approaching Fall and that’s my favourite time of year, so I’ve done a look that is centered around that. I chose the new Cult of Individuality Zen Midrise skinny jeans in Aeon Flux which will be released soon. I think the metallic print on these is gorgeous! It reminds me so much of Autumn leaves and rain drops!
I paired the jeans with a cropped top from 3.1 Phillip Lim as it’s still quite warm outside but then layered a black blazer from Stella McCartney to give it some structure and tidiness. I then finished it off with some Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels and a nude clutch from Michael Kors to keep it clean. I decided not to go with any jewellery for this outfit as I wanted the jeans to make a statement on their own. Sometimes less really is more when you have something busy going on.
I couldn’t have been more excited when first seeing the J Brand 835 Mid-Rise Capri in Exposure. I just love the way the repaired detailing works so fluidly with the distressing of the jeans. Not to mention the undone hem that adds just that bit more to the look with the way the threads hang when styling them with running sneakers, like these all white Roshes by Nike.
I wanted to go for a look that had that sense of reckless abandonment that I feel these jeans embody. I paired the jeans with a t shirt by LnA as I find the distressing to play against this fringe Saint Laurent jacket really well. Then to finish it off and carry that western feel, a brimmed hat from Brixton. The look is a bit of a hodgepodge of pieces that are just thrown together, but in a sense works well with the vibe it gives off when all paired together. How would you style these jeans?
