FLARE JEANS. DENIM SHIRT.
A combo that I was always slightly apprehensive about, yet, ever since the latest "all-denim-everything" frenzy, I've been trying to find a way to make this trend work. My solution? Choosing similar denim hues and taming it down with a structured casual jacket to create a harmonious contrast.
For me, jeans & gold have always been the go-to mix whenever looking to create a casual yet sophisticated outfit. I also find the two shades being very compatible, giving a very pleasant chromatic effect, in this case, perfect for spring !
Because I was already crossing the border through a dangerous zone, by pairing denim w/ denim, I sticked to minimal accessories- classic black bag & shoes (pointed because THEY ARE BACK & ROCKING the spring street-style ! ) This also helped me step out of the 90's vibe and offer a contemporary feel to my look. (Don't get me wrong, the 90's ARE SO IN right now and I can't wait to experiment with their good old fashion elements- but that's another future story! )
Another trend that I am quite fascinated about but haven't had the chance to experiment with yet is "THE FRINGE" . Here, I tried to incorporate it through the golden belt whose cheeky & stylish tassel added some movement to my outfit, but I'll be braver next time !
So here you have it, one simple, casual look where you can easily incorporate 4 trends : DENIM MANIA, FLARE TROUSERS ( the skinny jeans are dead, haven't you heard ?!) , THE FRINGE & THE POINTED SHOES ! They might not be fresh-off-the-runway, but I did it my way, and as long as you feel comfortable and confident with your sartorial choices, that's all that matters ! And I sure had a blast wearing these clothes !
