This year, my holiday attire has switched gears. Last year, you’d find me in a bright dress with a bauble necklace, tights and patent leather pumps for a good majority of the season. However, this year, I’m taking a much more laid back approach to holiday style.
Going against the norm can be difficult at times though - how do you dress up a pair of jeans? And how can I feel the optimum amount of comfort while still looking cute? #PRIORITIES
A concept to remember: BALANCE. In this case, I evened out a casual look by pairing medium-wash jeans from PAIGE denim with these fun white pumps (proving you can totally wear white after labor day!) Because the jeans were on the tighter side, I threw on an over-sized sweater from one of my favorite local shops, Take 5 Boutique. Then I added my favorite Sophie Blake necklace to add just a touch of holiday glam.
The idea to pair my jeans with a boyfriend sweater came from my new favorite place to buy jeans, Fitcode. They’re this amazing company that helps you find the right kind of jeans to fit your body type! I’m so happy my days of breaking down in the dressing room are OVER. I can’t say enough good things about this site - even when I had questions on a few particular pair of jeans, their help desk was instrumental in helping me find the most perfect pair. You can take this quiz to find out what type of jeans would fit you best!
Here are a few other tips from Rian Buckley, Fitcode CEO and a company founder on how to dress up your denim:
My current favorite look during the holidays is black denim. I can pair a leather jacket with my black skinny jeans and on-trend booties for a quick party outfit.
Cuffing jeans to wear with flats, booties, moto boots and heels is classy even in wet, colder weather.
Feminine Meets Masculine
Intertwining masculine hints adds a bit of intrigue to a holiday look. Think about a sheer button-down under a blazer with your favorite dark wash jeans.
Outerwear with Texture
I love the vibrancy that outerwear adds to a denim-based holiday outfit for a big entrance. Faux-fur coats feel glamorous and old Hollywood or an embellished jacket and jeans is posh without trying too hard.
