How To Rock This Moscow-Based Blogger’s Fall Denim Style


We’re crushing hard on Moscow style blogger and personal shopper Alexandra Osina (of Styled By Alexandra) ‘s fall denim look right now. She mixes denim shorts, jackets, and skirts with unexpected pieces and to create quirky, flirty autumn ensembles that get awesome marks across the board. Check out her recent outfits below and get a quick lesson in her unique approach to denim styling.

The look: Sweater with medium-above-the-knee denim skirt

Where to wear it: Cute look for the office and a meeting over coffee with a client.

Tip: Hem lengths are key in pulling this off. The skirt should fall above the knees (but no shorter) and the sweater should fall just below the waistline (but not shorter). The fullness of the skirt keeps things casual and chic.

The Look: Denim sequined shorts with denim workshirt & tights

Where to wear it: A great look for shopping and hanging out with friends.

Tip: Switch the playful coat for a sharp blazer for a night-friendly look.

A Super-Luxe Take On The Boyfriend Jeans & Blazer Combo


By now you know we’re all about the jeans x blazer combo. It’s a quick fix to any don’t-know-what-to-wear day that works from the office to your post-work plans. Annabelle of Viva Luxury shows us another way to rock this equation by throwing a pair of shredded boyfriend jeans into the mix, with a healthy dose of metallic jewelry. She successfully turns the rough edges of destroyed denim into something… well, luxurious! And we love it.

Make Your Jeans Your Own: Styling, Distressing, Cuffing & More


The thing that sets the most stylish people apart from the rest is not that they have access to some exclusive, unique source of clothing no one else does. It’s that they take the same products everyone else buys and they make it their own. With jeans, this is especially versatile, from distressing to cuffing and beyond.

Below are a few ways you can make your jeans your own this fall.

1. DIY distress your jeans. Grab a pair of scissors, some sand paper, and go to town on your favorite jeans to create a look that’s vintage and chic. Check out our post on distressing denim for more ideas.

2. Mix and match denim with your favorite statement accessories, like killer shoes or a bold metallic clutch. Hint: Done correctly, this makes a pair of jeans acceptable in the night life realm.

3. Cuff them up. Whether you prefer a wide thick cuff or a skinny rolled cuff, when you adjust hemlines, the game changes. The a-symmetrical cuffing job above is a tomboyish statement we love (especially when worn with heels). Check out our video on three ways to cuff jeans, below.

Need your jeans dyed, tailored, or cut into the perfect pair of cut-off shorts? (We wear ours all year ’round with a pair of tights!) Send them in to Denim Therapy and we’ll work magic with out expert repair and customization services.

Metallic Skirt x Chambray Shirt = Perfect Outfit


Metallics are one trend that reappear each time fall rolls around, and we’re not complaining. A shot of pewter or bronze in an outfit can add just the right edge, whether it’s the coating on your jeans or a more dramatic piece, like this metallic silver skirt. What do we love about this skirt in particular? It’s under $50. Worn with a chambray denim workshirt and some serious heels, it becomes a head-turning look that will take you from day to night without a hitch.

Fail-Proof: Denim x Knit Top x Jacket Combo


No time to fuss over what you’re going to wear today? Try this super easy (and very chic) combination that’s perfect for fall. It’s the fail-proof denim x knit top x jacket equation, and it always =  awesome.

Start with your favorite pair of jeans (we love a relaxed fit, perhaps with a bit of distressing, but skinny works too). For fall, we’ll start out with dark wash jeans. Add a scoop neck knit top, tucked in either fully with a belt or just half-tucked in the front. Over this, throw a soft tailored blazer and cuff the sleeves. Add some chic flats, and you’re out the door!

How to Wear The Peplum Trend with Jeans


Those of you who have fallen in love with the peplum trend and simply can’t get enough of this sophisticated, feminine silhouette is in for a treat: you can wear it with jeans.  Absolutely!  We recommend pairing a peplum top with a pair of skinny jeans and heels.  This will give you that slim and curvy look that is so on trend right now.  We think it has something to do with It Girl Victoria Beckham‘s trend-influencing style: peplum dresses and classy pencil skirts.  We’ve pulled together some great pieces and a few jeans (of course) to help you get that look.  Are you going to give it a go?
