One thing’s certain, denim lovers: leaving the house in August wearing head-to-toe black is sure to make a statement, but it could also result in a not-so-stylish heat stroke. Wearing white denim, a white blazer, and a fresh white t-shirt however, will keep you a few degrees cooler and will amp up your tan. Below, we break down one style blogger’s look piece by piece.
Getting ready for the epic August beach trip? So are we! And we’re packing denim shorts, bikinis, and dry shampoo. Kaftans and cover-ups may be chic, but when you wear denim on the beach, it’s a non-stop party. Check out some of our favorite bathing suit and cut-off shorts combos below.
Want a mid-summer look that’ll turn heads? One of our favorite bloggers, KAYTURE, stepped out recently in some gorgeous purple skinny jeans and a breezy a-symmetrical white tee. Pastel colored jeans are still topping the denim style charts, so no worries if you’re late on the uptake. Pair these beauties with a neutral white or off-white top, but keep it interesting with a hem detail or deep v-neck.
Ladies, printed jeans are the style du jour, so have fun this summer and stand out from the crowd in these decorative jeans that will stand alone on its own. Since we’re certain you wouldn’t go out half naked in public (with the few exceptions of certain celebrities), we put together some key looks that will keep the spotlight on your graphic jeans, while making you the star with a carefully pulled-together look.
Tuxedo jeans are one of those trends that can seem both exciting and intimidating. How do you wear them without getting dangerously close to the “track pants” look? What’s the best color to buy them in? What kind of shoes do they look good with? Plenty of celebs have taken them on as a wardrobe staple, like Kendall Jenner, who was snapped recently in her Rag & Bone tuxedo jeans. If you’re intrigued by this trend, scroll below for your complete guide to tuxedo jeans shopping & styling.
Perhaps tie-dye still reminds you of a bygone hippie era, but when coupled with the pastel hues running rampant in the denim world, this look makes for a fresh and modern jeans update. Grab a pair, like J Brand’s Tie-Dye Skinny Jeans in light pink, for a statement piece this summer. Struggling with how to wear it? Grays and other pastels pair well with pastel pink (try mint or pale yellow), as do lighter neutrals. Darker colors are a bit harder to incorporate, but you’re safe with black kicks balanced out by similarly shaded accessories–see for yourself below!
What is the best way to take your work outfit and change it up to a nighttime, ready-to-hit-the-town getup? Accessories. We took a basic look that is daytime comfortable and appropriate and showed you how to swap out and mix up the accessories for an easy and timesaving nighttime transition. What are your most relied on staple pieces?
Here’s one classic piece you must have in your wardrobe: the denim workshirt. We love this light wash MOTO Fitted Denim Shirt from Topshop, which looks equally good paired with pastel hues and neutral standbys as it does with bold prints and shocking brights. Try wearing yours with pencil skirts and flats for work, or loose over your favorite pair of colored skinny jeans on the weekend. Check out more of our suggestions below!
We know it can be tough to get comfortable styling items beyond the standard denim jacket and skinny jeans, but it’s refreshing and fun to branch out and work in some silhouettes as the seasons change. We think of long denim skirts as flawless for fall and late summer, but they work just as well for a chilly night on the beach or a midnight stroll on your summer camping trip. Try these four looks!
