Woohoo! It’s the first outfit of the remix series!
I’d wear this one just about anywhere during the day — errands, working from a coffee shop, or meeting up with a friend for lunch.
Cuff / To give these full length jeans a different vibe, I rolled them twice at the bottom to create thick cuffs. Now they look more like ankle jeans.
Unbutton / When trying to decide how to style the button down, I thought of tucking it in or tying it in a knot at the waist, but I do those things all the time and wanted to try something a little different. So I simply left the bottom button unbuttoned. Sounds overly simple, but I was surprised at the difference it made in the shape of the shirt — it gave it this cool split “V” front — especially with a jacket on. It also added a bit of dimension to the outfit, because anytime I move, it gives a peek at the high rise jeans going on underneath. (No skin showing, just the jeans.)
Two colors + a pattern in one of those colors / My black and blue palette falls more on the neutral side of things, just the way I like it. I started creating the outfit from the denim jacket, then picked the black jeans since they work so well with that jacket. Then when it came time to pick the top (and pattern), I pulled in striped top in blue — a color that’s already going on because of the denim jacket. I’m finding that this is a pretty fail proof combination when it comes to creating an outfit with interest.
Since it’s back-to-school season and all, let’s give this outfit a grade, shall we? I’d give it an A+. It’s comfortable (broken-in, flat shoes with comfort inserts), functional (layers for changing temperatures), and it feels very true to my style (denim, neutral colors, stripes — all hallmarks of my style).
