We snapped this Project Show-goer in an effortless ensemble to show you what casual-cool looks like in the muggy NYC summertime. She’s wearing a loose tank over a hot pink bikini top and some classic cut-off shorts. High tops and a stylish bag, and she’s out the door! Ladies, take note. Boys, you can wear basically the same thing, sans-hot pink bikini.
We’re live blogging Project Show for the next 3 days, so keep up with us on facebook.
We love when childhood favorites make comebacks as stylish wardrobe staples. The overall jean is no exception, but this is one piece you’ll need to pull off with specific style cues in order not to look like you’re simply regressing to the days of early Nickelodeon cartoons and Bazooka gum. Honestly, WTF did a round-up of chic ways to wear them, our favorites of which are below.
The Glamourai posted up a new look this week featuring one of our favorite combinations for a no-fuss women’s look in the summer: a classic white button-down top and a pair of medium wash skinny jeans. She chose a pair of Rich + Skinny destroyed denim jeans, but this look can be pulled off with a less rock-n-roll pair as well. We dare say this is a great option for the office! See the original post and shop her entire look.
What, wear denim with your fancy schmancy Burberrytrench 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.
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.
