While browsing one my favorite fashion blogs, Who What Wear, I stumbled across an interesting article about denim. According to Who What Wear, on average, today’s woman owns seven pairs of jeans? To an average person, 7 pairs of jeans sounds like a lot, but I’ll bet fashion bloggers and fashion lovers, like me can agree that we own more than 7 pairs of jeans. I blame the changing trends each season. Remember when skinny jeans were the huge trend, now it is all about flared jeans and relaxed fits. Hence, why my denim collection has grown tremendously. In this style post, I’ll be showcasing one of my favorite pairs of jeans this season with a totally unique fit, blending the skinny, boot cut, and flared style.
Meet the Cali Demi Boot by Madewell. This fit features a high waisted design, for a lean and stylish look, as well as a mini-flare look at the bottom, to show off your favorite booties, heels, or flats. For those who are not yet ready to abandon your skinny jeans and fully embrace the flared jean trend, the Cali Demi Boot is perfect for you because it has a slight flare, while keeping that skinny silhouette. I love my pair of Cali Demi Boot jeans in this “off black” color (not a true black, but not as light as a gray).
In my opinion, you can pair this “off black” shade with pretty much any color, but you can’t go wrong with a white blouse. I chose to wear my white button up blouse with a beautiful, delicate embroidered detail by Fashion Mia. Of course, I did my half tuck trick, to give more shape to this oversized blouse and highlight the jeans high waist.
I felt my outfit was missing something so when in doubt a fringed vest will complete any outfit. My suede vest is from Marshalls and the mossy green/gray color matches perfectly with the colors of the embroidered flowers on my blouse.
When wearing these jeans, your shoe game has to be on point, so without a doubt I chose my booties from Charlotte Russe. No one would ever guess that I got these booties for $6. Gotta love a good shoe sale.
Finally, what is an outfit without a choker? Here I am wearing a simple choker from Forever 21. If you are crazy obsessed with chokers, head over to Forever 21 to find endless amounts of inexpensive chokers. A fashionista’s heaven!
Denim is a huge staple in anyone’s wardrobe. And now that there are more styles of jeans than ever, I find myself wanting more and more. What are your thoughts on this season’s denim trends? Where is the best place to find jeans? What is your current “it” denim? Continue the discussion below. Love to hear from you all. See you next time!
