Recently, Refinery29 featured three ways to wear wide leg jeans, a great go-to jean to transition from summer to fall. We know it’s hard to imagine at the moment, through the scorching temperatures, that cooler days are upon us, but it’s true! These breezy wide hem jeans work well for a casual weekend, or a weekday work outfit; it’s very versatile. Throw on a blazer, slip on some heels, swap in a colorful blouse. Just make sure your job allows you to wear jeans on non-Fridays! What’s great about wide leg jeans is that you can keep wearing them into fall and stretch your denim dollars! Check out the suggested pairings and see if you can’t personalize it even more with your own accessories and favorite footwear.

As summer comes to a close, we’re having a hard time accepting the fact that we will soon have to retire our beloved denim cutoffs and midriff baring tops. On a brighter note, the fall season is fast approaching, and while we would love to bask in the sun all day, we must admit it feels good to welcome the crisp clean autumn air. Not to mention the return of trench coats, knit sweaters, boots and darker/richer color denim; key essentials that every fall wardrobe needs. But until the time comes for you to make the change, transition your beloved denim high-waisted shorts from summer to fall by pairing it with a pussy bow blouse (as shown below). For cooler days throw on a pair of opaque tights under shorts to keep your legs warm. And if shorts aren’t your thing dress up a pair of your favorite bell bottoms jeans with an ultra cool 70’s ruffled shirt for a retro-chic effect. Who knew seasonal changes could be this easy?!

Blogger and bonafide fashionista Jenny Ong always has great denim infused looks with a quaint flirty charm, and this layered number is no exception. Her trendy pattern-clash ensemble is perfectly styled with a light wash denim work shirt, which actually helps to anchor the look together by acting as a neutral. Adding fun layers like this together is a great way to keep your wardrobe easily adaptable for those cool, brisk morning into warm afternoon days as we head into spring. Take it a step further by throwing on a colorful chunky piece of jewelry like Jenny’s necklace and a bright bag to really take it to the next level of bold spring style.
