It’s getting chilly outside and denim looks are ruling the streets from New York to Los Angeles to Paris to Milan. Whether dressed up or down, trendsetters are styling their denim every which way to stay cozy yet chic. Here, three of the top denim looks to take you from the office to Sunday brunch to date night and beyond.
Skinny denim goes sleek when paired with a tailored blazer or crisp button-down shirt…or even better, throw on both for optimal layering. A basic sandal or classic single-sole pump make this look office-appropriate while a pair of loafers completes a preppy ensemble. Add a pop of color for extra edge or stick with black accessories for chic graphic style.
What’s better than an excuse to rock cozy flannel, chunky knots and stripes? These girls embrace the chilly weather while maintaining a polished look by pairing their distressed denim with the season’s must-have sweaters and tops. Heels and an oversize clutch in a bold hue elevate the look and don a pair of sunnies to keep it cool while being snapped by The Sartorialist or Tommy Ton.
This season, animal print is everywhere from coats to pants to accessories and denim provides the perfect palette for trying this trend. The options are endless: a faux fur topper and classic boyfriend jeans is the ideal outfit for spending a Saturday pursuing your favorite vintage haunts and an always-in denim jacket worn with a swoon-worthy bag looks polished yet pretty for a lunch date. Leopard pants might be a style risk but you won’t end up on the Fashion Police if you keep it classy with a chambray shirt and basic overcoat.
