5 Denim Looks to Copy

5 Layered Looks Rich with Texture

with your Favorite Denim Essential

Most of us LOVE our denim and can’t live without it. Here are 5 looks to rock as we finally begin to cool down. Layering is a topic in many of our fashion layouts, “looks of the day” and trend reports-this is an essential skill for California woman. The key to layering is proportion and texture, denim is one texture that works all year round and is always worth the investment. A chambray button down and pair of jeans are the two of the most versatile piece in your wardrobe plus woman typically get the most use out of these two items.

Mix & Match

Making your look modern is easier than you think; mix items in new ways like a leather mini with a parka. We all have coats hanging in our closets that don’t get much “wear time” because their thought of as too heavy for our weather. Try pairing your coat with light weight layers for a fresh fall look that is perfect for our mild Southern California Weather.

Perfectly Unmatched

One of the things I love the most about stylish women is their ability to put together their looks in ways no one else thought of… like perfectly not matching anything but making it all work. How do they do that? By not following the rules but having a clear understanding of color, texture, & proportion.

This look is the perfect example of how nothing quite matches but everything “goes” together. Without getting too wordy or over explaining this look, it’s works because all the colors are a similar saturation of color & hue. BTW I’m loving leopard & plaid!

Who ever thought this pair could be so cool? Effortless and  casual should still have a polished tone.

It’s in the Details

Most of the time it is the little things that set our look apart from the pack. With the addition of subtle details in ones sweater or the choice to wear stripes instead of solids, or frayed skinnies in leu of hemmed jeans, these are the small things that set your look apart. Find little ways to make your look unique. Subtle details are just as important as bold statements.
