Paint it Blue: Les Jeans de Chanel

By Ann of Holier than Now

You’ll have to convince the Eat, Sleep, Denim team that the latest Chanel Limited Edition nail polish collection wasn’t made exclusively for us. A range of blues perfectly matched to our favorite jeans?  We’ll take every shade – come September 8th, when Les Blues de Chanel launches exclusively at Chanel boutiques in honor of Fashion’s Night Out.

In the meantime, I don’t need any convincing that blue-on-blue has never felt more right.  A few weeks back I shared some inspiration for a wearable denim tuxedo in the form of the chambray shirt; this week I’m realizing I don’t own nearly enough blue tops to pair with my favorite jeans.  It’s such an easy way to mix blue shades without feeling like you’ve tried too hard to get the look.  I might even be so bold as to layer a contrasting light or very dark denim jacket over top – something I’d have filed under “overkill” even a year ago.

From silk to cotton, draped to button-down, here are four ways to bolster your blue basics.

1. Vince Silk Tee ($145.00 – also in other colors)

2. Ever Bowery Striped Blouse ($158)

3. C&C California Pepper Jersey Henley ($80.00)

4. Young Fabulous & Broke Drape Top ($101.50 – 30% off)

Will you do blue-on-blue this season? (And do you love those Chanel colors like we do … ?)
