What, wear denim with your fancy schmancy Burberry trench coat? Yup. The luxury fashion brand has featured a mini-me version in the form of a very adorable Burberry Boy’s trenchcoat via their own Tumblr account, and we think it hits all the right posh-but-relaxed notes for adults as well. We just love the pops of classic color against a neutral base. Want to get the look? We found a couple of fashion finds for your consideration.
GET THE LOOK…
Starting with a trench coat as your base, try a bright colored shirt and colored jeans to offset against the khaki. Fun statement jewelry or a cross body bag completes the haute commuter look.

We’ve been pondering the delights of swimwear lately. If the heat doesn’t get to you, we don’t know what will! Just try to avoid seeing all the cute sets in all the magazines. One of our favorites at the minute has to be the new swimwear and beachwear range from Debenhams.com. Many styles which go swimmingly (pun intended) with jeans! During our research, we came across some pretty useful tips, so thought we’d share!
If you’re big up top, look for swimsuits with built in support for the chest but also with some eye-catching detail around the waist, such as ruching or a design, to draw attention away from your chest, Oprah recommends. If you are small-chested, pick styles that have padding in the bra section. Alternatively, emphasise your assets with eye-catching colors and prints. Small prints are best as they make an area look bigger. On a practical note, if you are planning on going for a swim, a heavily-padded suit may not be the best choice—it’ll take ages to dry!
If your lower half is biggest, Glamour advises that you go for swimsuits and bikinis with high-leg cuts rather than boy shorts. We can see from their pictures that higher-cut options make legs look longer and the hip and derriere area look smaller. If you’re really not about putting your body on display, strapless dresses look the part while you’re lying on the beach. And, don’t forget all the fun sandals out right now: chunky straps for daytime; leg-lengthening neutral tones for the evening. We feel armed to make our swimwear choices now, and we hope you feel the same!

Superstar style blogger The Glamourai, upon returning to NYC from her dreamy trip to Morroco recently, was inspired to dress with rich textures and hues by her stay in Marrakesh. She chose 7 For All Mankind’s Crop Skinny in Toffee Ikat and paired it with a bright orange tunic and tassle clutch. The perfect outfit for a pre-summer evening, we think! Try mixing printed denim with bold colors to achieve a similar look.
See the original post at The Glamourai, and bookmark her for style inspiration! Love the look? Grab your pair of 7 For All Mankind’s Crop Skinny in Toffee Ikat for a stylish summer yourself.

Prints are a surefire way to make a bold statement, and brightly colored patterns ooze vibrant, summery freshness. For a look that can easily transition back-and-forth between day to night, throw a casual denim vest over a bodycon aztec print number. Instant dress-down! Even in platform shoes, with shiny gold wrist candy, you won’t look too overdone.

London-based blogger Hedvig is definitely one of our street style inspirations for spring. We love how she wears radically different kinds of jeans–printed skinnies, white flares, and cropped, cuffed jeans–in equally chic ways. Bonus points for incorporating a mint green sweater (the “it” color this season), denim-on-denim, and graphic prints into these outfits. If you’re a fan, get the looks below!

For an utterly breezy and casual springtime outfit, take a cue from style blogger Andy Torres. Light wash jeans look excellent with bolder hues up top, but they’re in a whole new element when worn with chilly neutrals. She paired her destroyed skinnies with a gray sweatshirt top and classic trench coat, and pulled it all together with solid silver and black accessories. Get the look below!

Wait one moment. Is that–is that sun we feel? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but we’re already looking towards summer and maybe hallucinating that it’s warmer than it actually is. Here is a look that is perfectly beachy, but will suit you for springtime. Style blogger Jennifer paired her peachy jeans with a pastel-adorned white crop top, bangles, cat-eye sunglasses, and neutral heels. Airy, light, and chill as can be. We approve.

Jessica Alba is one of our favorite celeb denim style icons when it comes to casual, every-day outfits that are chic, comfortable, and versatile. Her latest ensemble has us really psyched: a Genetic Denim vest over a long floral maxi dress.The traditional denim-over-dress equation is hard to go wrong with, but a few pointers on making it work.
1. Respect outfit proportion! If the dress is long, opt for a cropped vest or jacket. A mini-dress merits a longer jacket/vest (or even oversize).
2. Light wash denim looks amazing in the spring over florals. Dark wash lends itself to late summer and early fall, matching a darker hued printed dress.
3. If the denim vest’s cut and wash make the outfit extra masculine, balance the look with jewelry and a scarf.
