I just love a good contrast, don’t you? I think my very favorite thing about styling my denim (that comes especially easily in the spring months) is dressing up casual, washed-out, distressed denim, and dressing down slick, fitted, dark denim. Same goes for mixing up masculine and feminine pieces.
If you know me personally, you know that I have this crazy dream that someday I’ll be a girl who wears heels all the time – with ease. It’s as if I think one day I’ll just wake up and tadaaa I’m wearing stilettos and wedges daily and feeling fantastic. While this may not actually happen, I am making strides when I can, to give my flats and loafers a rest and elevate my style, if you will.
The latest incarnation of this dream for me, is pairing perfectly slouchy and distressed boyfriend (or just boy, if you’re feeling trendy) jeans and seriously amazing, killer, you-can’t-not-look-at-these-shoes shoes. Give me colors, give me all kinds of straps, give me excess. I’m ready. All you need to complete this kind of look is a slouchy tee (like this), or silk blouse for the office, and simple, structured blazer.
How I envision pairing them:
