A Note on Style: Denim Days

Hello LDV readers. It’s Karima from A Note on Style with a post on jeans, a clothing item I think everyone can relate to. They’re the anchor of my wardrobe. Frankly, when I’m considering a new item to purchase, the first question I ask myself is how I’d wear it with jeans. And even though I love classic styling that has stood the test of time, I still like to consider options that feel fresh and introduce a modern note to my look.

I did a post on A Note on Style a couple of weeks ago called “Jeans These Days” that highlighted some of the ways to style denim that feels the most current. With a variety of silhouettes in play, it’s ultimately the finishing details and wash that give a pair of jeans relevancy today. A gently worn finish that reads as authentic is where it’s at. A clean hem, void of excessive frayed edges or rips, welcomes jeans back to a classic state that’s been missing the last few seasons. With just these two details in check, styling a pair of jeans is a cinch.

I’m using the checklist below as a styling guide for the season highlighting the items I may want to purchase to successfully create a contemporary, yet classic look:

  • Pair with a sharply tailored blazer
  • Denim on denim is a good move
  • Keep it tonal wearing shades of white
  • Add an upscale luxe bag
  • Add polish with classic gold jewelry
  • Elevate with a beautiful belt
  • White shoes with dark denim is a good thing
  • Wear jeans that are relaxed
  • Unless the jeans are cropped, they need to skim the floor
  • Pair with either loafers or sandals, in any heel height

 

jeans, bag(and here), blazer, scarf, denim shirt, tank, belt, earrings, sandals

turtleneck, jacket, sleeveless top, jeans, necklace, sandals, bag, sunglasses

 

 

top, jeans, blazer, sandals, bag, ring
