One of my favorite trends this season is the denim pencil skirt and a couple of months ago I styled a look with the AG Denim Skirt. I wanted to style a look with this Paige Dedire skirt in Ramone Destructed because I love the black wash and the shreds, which give it a completely different, edgier look.
In keeping with the edgier vibe, I chose to style this with all black pieces, for a sleek look that could easily transition from day to night. I chose this simple black tank top from Raquel Allegra that has a great slouchy shape and would look good slightly tucked into the skirt. I then chose these Alexander Wang neoprene shoes, which add a nice clean line. Since I didn’t incorporate color, I went with a graphic printed clutch from Givenchy instead, to add a bit of a playful touch. I finished the look with a sleek silver cuff from Loren Stewart and Saint Laurent sunglasses.
The moment I saw these BLANK NYC Vegan Moto Leather Pants in Daddy Soda, I knew wanted to do a look with them. The details are very strong and a classic moto style, but it is also well done. A good moto detail is sometimes even rare in pricier denim, which makes them more appealing.
I decided to go for a more sporty-devil-may-care look as I find that the pants suit the concept very well. I chose to pair it with a sweater by TOPSHOP for its easy casualness. Then chose a pair of the SL Loops by Adidas as I am completely loving them right now and the shape works really well with the cut of these pants. Then to finish the look, a backpack by Opening Ceremony and sunglasses by Ray-Ban. Add more to that devil may care look and give yourself a heavy side part for when you are out hanging with friends.
As the weather has been scorching hot over here in the UK for weeks now, I’m more interested in comfortable and casual looks that will keep me cool, rather than styling something beautiful which I know I am going to sweat in. This was my inspiration behind this outfit, using off duty models as the base. I am absolutely in love with the Citizens of Humanity Rocket Jeans in Axel since I got them last week, so I thought they would make the perfect starting point for this look.
I chose to pair them with The Row Roger Tank in white as it’s loose and breezy, keeping you cool for the day time. I added some colour and fun though with these Crime Leopard High Tops as I think they pair so well with black skinny jeans, not to mention they will be great for shopping! To hold all of your essentials, I went with a Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote as the tan shade was the perfect tone for the rest of the pieces. Moving onto the accessories, I chose a Sashi Tracy Long Bar Necklace and a Nasty Gal Snake Around Ring. Both of these are quirky and fun! I then went with these classic looking Ray-Ban Sunglasses and finished everything off with a Fedora. This is definitely something I would wear for day time! It reminds me a lot of an outfit that Cara Delevingne or Hilary Duff might choose.
When I first saw Jonathan’s post on this Rag & Bone Monterey Denim jacket, I loved it! I love the distressing along the bottom hem and the wash is so versatile, so I chose it for my weekend going out look. Since summer is in full swing and I am trying to get as much pool and beach time in as possible, I thought I’d style a look that could transition from pool side to a night out.
For day, the denim jacket would make a great layer worn open over this bikini top from Billabong, paired with this blue P.A.R.O.S.H skirt. These suede wrap sandals from Ancient Greek are casual but have a nice feminine touch. The embellished clutch from ASOS adds a bit of texture and more color to the look, and I always love how polished clutches make a more casual outfit dressy. To transition the look to night, I would style the jacket more as a denim shirt, wearing it buttoned up with the skirt and the sleeves pushed up to show off this sleek gold cuff from Alexis Bittar.
