Last time we linked up with Kuro, they showed us a gradient of denim washed, aged, and treated for different lengths of time, and told us the best way to wear distressed vintage jeans was with a tailored blazer and a crisp, clean button-down. Sound advice that doesn’t expire, it turns out, since we ran into them this week and they were keeping with their vintage meets tailored aesthetic. “Denim for the Yohji fan,” they explained, showing us a dapper mannequin outfitted in the customer image. Selvedge trimmed back pockets, top-stitching, and other details characterize this impressive Japanese brand. Check them out online for more on their philosophy and products.
Winter is a great time of year to rock that jeans and boots look, no matter what type of boots or fit of jean. With the right pair of jeans, you’ll have months of hassle-free street style looks. For ankle boots, wear cropped jeans or try cuffing them with a thin cuff for a delicate look. Skinny or boyfriend jeans work. For tall boots, wear denim leggings or skinny jeans. They stay in your boots better and are less likely to pinch. Avoid wearing slim or boot cut jeans if you want to tuck them in. You want a sleek silhouette. Now, all you have to do is throw on the perfect knit top or wintry coat to complete the look.
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.
The Look: Denim workshirt over flirty lace dress and denim leggings
Where to wear it: Perfect for date night!
Tip: When the weather gets colder, mix in a faux-fur stole and metallic jewelry.
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.

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.
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.
We can’t always look our Fashion Week best, but you could easily look like a street style star anytime of year with just a few wardrobe staples, and these suggestions will take you into fall: a jeans and a blazer combo, and trendy statement jewelry. Toss in cute flats (or sexy pumps) and a well-placed eye-popping bag, and you’ll be ready to rock the cement catwalk anytime.
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!

What shoes are you going to wear with your new favorite, fall jeans? Fall fashion doesn’t have to be a mystery. Are they cropped, skinny, metallic, printed or coated jeans? We found 9 pairs of ankle boots that will keep your tootsies warm this fall, while you’re strutting your hot self down the street. Watch out, though: these shoes might just steal the spotlight!
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?
