Jeans! Jeans! and more Jeans! Today, we are talking about my denim favorites and how to style them, let have some fun. As many of you know this year I resolved to delve more into sustainable fashion. I decided to thrift, make/sew and re-use as many of my current wardrobe pieces as possible. This resolution is a little bit difficult when you are someone that loves fashion and shopping, but I am still going strong. I like to challenge myself in certain areas with my style and on of those areas is with my denim pieces. Right now I have some denim favorites that I have on constant repeat.
A couple years ago I only lived in leggings, always! Rarely would you ever see me in a pair of jeans, but after the baby I found such a comfort in my jeans. This also came from finding denim pieces with the perfect fit for my body. I am a petite curvy girl and I like my jeans to fit just right, lengthwise, and in the rise. Shopping for denim pieces has always been a challenge for me, but by trying on hundreds of pairs and scouting out cool retro pieces I have found some denim pieces that I love. Today I am sharing a few of my denim favorites with you and how I normally style them.
RETRO DENIM BLOUSE
So, I will begin with my most recently acquired piece. This Vintage Bill Blass denim top fit perfectly when I tried it on at the thrift store. It has a boxier fit but is still very flattering. I love that it has a short sleeve which is perfect for Miami, and I will be wearing this top a lot this summer. I paired this retro blouse with a darker denim and some cool yellow heels. I’m love doing a pop of color when I do an all denim look. I kept the accessories pretty simple and paired it with a gold choker style necklace from Ann Taylor that I got about a year ago. You can also try this top with some shorts, tennis skirt and sneakers.
VINTAGE DENIM JUMPER
This denim jumper! I am obsessed with this denim piece. It’s one of my favorites. I bought this jumper in the fall and have been wanting to bring it out and throw it on with some sneakers and go. So that is exactly what I did with this look. A lot of my outfits need to be versatile. So when it comes to my denim favorites I choose pieces that can easily be worn with heels or sneakers. I like having the option of both. I actually hemmed this dress so that it would hit at a fun length and perfectly pair with heels as well.
STRAIGHT LEG JEANS
These jeans are the most amazing pair I have ever find. They were a random buy last year in the Target clearance section for $8.98. I actually kept them in my drawer for a while, and when I finally wore them, I fell in love. They are from the brand Wild Fable carried at Target. This denim favorite is my go-to pair. This look is an easy one too. You can pair any t-shirt, knotted, cropped, turtleneck, ribbed, graphic…it doesn’t matter. Style it up with some bold accessories and sneakers and you have the perfect on trend everyday look.
Your style doesn’t have to be complicated to look good, It’s all about finding the pieces that work for your body and re-working them in different ways.
