How To Style It: Straight Cut Jeans
The weather this week has been just chilly enough to finally get me thinking about fall. I just got these new pale grey jeans from Fidelity Denim that sit really low on the hips and have a straight cut leg. They're definitely not the skin tight skinnies that I'm used to and when I tried them on for the first time I thought "oh no, I should have sized down." The truth is, it feels nice to have my legs breathe a little with a looser fitting jean.
The challenge from there was how would I style these straight leg denims? With a lower waistline than I'm used to, I chose a bold belt to accentuate that feature. This particular one is a men's belt from the Gap that I got on sale for $3 when I was in high school. Truth is that I don't wear much but I've never been able to part with it. For some reason it reminds of the of kinda belt a biker dude might wear. So with that, I felt the need to offset the tough with the pretty. Enter, the silk blouse. This one almost has a 70s' secretary vibe with the sheer silk fabric, the necktie and the keyhole opening on the bust. A floppy wool hat, my trusty Armani sunglasses and a suede black pump was all I needed to finish the look. It's fall ready, reminiscent of That 70s' Show but with a contemporary vibe. Oh, but let's not forget about my Givenchy Pandora. This is the kinda bag that goes with any type of jeans, including straight cut. ;)
