Moment of Style: Denim Workshirt As A Jacket (We’re Making A Point, Here)


As you just saw in today’s street style post, wearing a denim workshirt that closely resembles (or actually is) a denim jacket can top off your look without the help of anything beneath it. On Jak & Jil’s blog, we find the perfect example of this, with an outfit that combines a scandalously unbuttoned denim work shirt/jacket with big opulent earrings and a mustard yellow skirt. Winning combination? We think definitely.

A Moment of Style: Skinny Jeans With Shredded Hem & Heels


Looking for a way to punctuate jeans other than the generic crop or cuffed hem? These skinnies were shredded to perfection, a few strands flying free, and cut just above the ankle so they’re not quite cropped, but short enough to give room to the epic shoes and (possibly proportion inspiring) bee tattoo. And by the way, isn’t that more refreshing than a butterfly? We thought so too.

London Fashion Week Denim Street Style


Roving photographer Tommy Ton is back in action across the pond at London Fashion Week for Style.com, capturing all the street style drama outside the shows.  This time around, we saw an abundance of denim looks coupled with fur-lined parkas, fierce footwear and buttery leather goods.  Blue denim was prominent, serving as a leaping off point for the rest of the ensemble: vibrant-colored jackets, lots of shiny jewelry and statement outerwear.

Denim & Metallics for New Year’s Eve Outfits that Shine


As Balmain reminded us repeatedly over the past year, metallics and denim are a match made in heaven. Whether it’s sparkles, studs, or a sleek panel of metallic mesh, this accent can turn a basic denim garment into something extremely festive (or totally badass). This New Year’s Eve, it’s time to toss the frou-frou cocktail dress and let the room know you’re there to party! Check out some of our favorite ways to wear metallic accessories and accents with your denim.

1. French fashion blogger extraordinaire Betty of Le Blog de Betty kicks around in some metal-toe boots by OFFICE (?95) – buy them at OFFICE.

2. It makes a lot of sense to turn to the makers of denim classics themselves to turn out compatible accessories to help illuminate your look. A metallic belt is functional, eye-catching, and sure to serve you well into the new year. We love this 1-SNAP-A belt by Diesel ($130) – buy it here.

3. Steal the show in this velvet vest with metallic thread embroidery and mirror detail! The ornate piece goes perfect with a pair of ripped cut-off jean shorts. Nasty Gal had this Marrakesh version for sale and it’s since been sold, but you can DIY, scour vintage shops, or try this gold-embellished nude bolero at $108.

4. New York-based glamour-expert and blogger-gone-style-icon The Glamourai layers with a metallic sequin cardigan over a pair of Hudson jeans. Metallic sequin blouse by Elizabeth and James ($185.50) – buy it at Beso.

5. The luxe golden accent jewelry and accessories at Chanel work perfectly when applied to denim. Pile on the bangles, jewels, and rings while keeping your denim attire simple to make a bold statement. Seen here via the Cherry Blossom Girl. Try these Giles & Brother golden bracelets ($168) from Net-A-Porter, or a Kenneth Jay Lane Double Cross Cuff ($231) from Shop Bop. For party goers on a budget, this beautiful Pelle Filigree Cuff ($20) from Alloy.

6. Taking #3 a bit further, Dries Van Noten SS/11 shows us that layering textured metallics on top and pairing with a pair of jeans creates a look that encompasses the spirit of partying in luxury and the careless vibe of downtown new york city. Image from JAK & JIL BLOG. Try this Diane Von Furstenberg ($545) from Cusp, paired with this VINCE sequin tea in antique gold ($295) from Revolve Clothing. Or try this eye-popping (and exceedingly affordable) Wet Seal variation in red.

With these styling tips and a whole universe full of after-Christmas sales, you’ll be able to rock party-tailored denim on the big night out and turn heads all year long.
