Denim is easy; it goes with anything and can be dressed up or down pretty much taking you from day to night or from party to party. Sometimes the “dressing it up” part can be difficult because it isn’t always just slapping on a pair of heels. Here are three ways to dress up your denim for those fun Summer parties.
I have been in a moccasins type of mood as of late and thought they would make a great pairing with my other obsession at the moment, grey denim. I chose the WILDFOX Marianne Jeans in Pebbles as my jean of choice as the color is just amazing and perfect. It does not feel dull and pairs with any earth tone/neutrals perfectly.
As I said above, I am just besotted with moccasins lately. I chose these from Isabel Marant for their authentic feel and great detailing. I then kept everything else simple, choosing a t shirt by IRO and shirt from Isabel’s Etoile line. Then to finish the whole look off, a beanie by Grevi. I cannot do casual without a beanie, no matter the season. What are your plans for this weekend?
For my weekend going out look, I wanted to style something light weight and summer appropriate as the sun has been shining over here in England, at last! I wanted to go for a white jean, so I opted for the Frame Denim Le Color Mid Rise Skinny Jeans in Blanc. I think these are a perfect basic white jean, with a great fit! To add some femininity, I went with a Pink Sleeveless Floral Blouse as this really screams summer to me! I then chose some Brian Atwood Brown Sema Wedges to give some height and a casual element.
Now for the accessories, as I already had quite a bit of pink and white, I wanted to contrast it with a yellow, which is why I chose this gorgeous Kate Spade York Limoni Clara bag in a woven wicker style with a yellow flap. I think this is really cool and perfect for that easy going day time vibe! Next I went with the jewellery, choosing a Michael Kors Slim Runway Watch in gold, some ASOS Enamel Rings and some Grad Night Geo Bangles in gold. Lastly, to keep the sun out of your eyes, I added these Michael Kors Rose Gold Kendall aviator sunglasses to the mix! I love this outfit and it’s definitely something I would wear myself! What do you think of it?
I have always been a fan of jeans that have a subtle tie-dye/bleached effect to them. Mix in distressed detailing and a cropped fit, I could not be more for the style. Citizens of Humanity has done everything right with their new Rocket Crop in Fire Grey. Cut in their Rocket style, they will be nothing but flattering on any body type.
This look here is the quintessential California look. A classic white button down, like this one by R13, is something that every woman has in her closet and works well with even the most gritty looking jeans. To bring that easy feel of the state even more, a pair of Isabel Marant boots, then some heavy metal jewelry by Givenchy and Marni that still have a natural earthy feel to them which is elevated from the usual leather strands and beads.
Sometimes we just all want to keep it easier than the look above and a classic pair of Chucks is the best way to do so. A muscle shirt, like this Isabel Marant one, also adds to the rolled out of bed look without taking it to the realms of sloppy. Then Ray-Ban aviators for when the day doesn’t require make-up and a backpack by Opening Ceremony that will make even a grocery run feel a lot cooler than just an errand.
Not only can these jeans be styled in the many casual ways with sneakers, but they can also be dressed up and smarter with some clean sandals. I paired them with a grey t shirt by ACNE to help bring out the smokey greys of the jeans. To dress it up, some clean accessories are in order. I chose barely there sandals by Tamara Mellon, a wallet by Saint Laurent and a cuff by Chloe. If you are looking to make the look even smarter, a white blazer will help you take this look to another level.
-So whether you are looking for something breezy, casual, or smarter; these looks will have you ready to take on any day.
