My favorite fashion closets always have a good mix of high and low priced items. So, when I had to choose a jeans closet to profile I naturally turned to my friend Chrystal Burns, who is a master at mixing cool, trendy pieces at various price points. Chrystal’s jeans collection is just as versatile as the rest of her closet. In it, one will find designer denim from labels like Seven for all Mankind and Citizens of Humanity, and more affordable options from the Gap and H&M.
Chrystal allowed me to take a look in her closet and even modeled a few of her favorite looks. “My main goal, when wearing and accessorizing denim, and clothing in general is to make sure that I stay on budget but look like a million bucks,” Chrystal says. From the looks of things, she’s been pretty successful at pulling this off.
“I love the versatility of denim and really have fun trying out casual and dressy looks,” says Chrystal. “During the day, I like to wear a pair of dark denim with a simple tee and flats, and at night I love to wear a pair of super skinny jeans with a sexy top and a great pair of heels.”
Pictured above, Chrystal shares some of her favorite looks. Chrystal has tons of different styles of jeans, so I thought I’d ask her what trend she is looking to wear next. “I really want a pair of boyfriend jeans, and also want to get a pair of distressed skinny jeans to wear with boots for the Fall.” We can’t wait to see the new editions to your closet Chrystal!
