STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: An Aspiring Jean-ius

February 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

Jeans are God’s gift to fashion. At least, that’s my opinion. All types of people wear jeans: rich, poor, young, old, short, tall, man, woman and even animals. They are just so easy and, surprisingly versatile. I own about 10 pairs of jeans and I would own more if I didn’t get grief from my mom every time I bought a pair. You can wear them for almost anything and manage to look cool and casual.

For example, this Fashionista is doing a stellar job of making these jeans look good. They are distressed boyfriend jeans, which are my absolute favorite. She wore them with a red and black plaid shirt with a leather biker jacket and black booties. It is a bit grungy and hipster, but it’s something that can look good on almost anyone. It doesn’t take much to recreate either. You just need a good pair of jeans like these from Urban Outfitters. It might be a little hard to wear them in the cold weather, but there’s an easy fix for that. Of course, you can just wear non-distressed jeans or you can wear a pair of leggings underneath. Maybe try patterned leggings to add to your outfit or keep it simple and go with black.

For the plaid shirt, there is this Ralph Lauren version from Macy’s that would work for this look. Biker jackets for a good price are hard to come by, but you’re in luck. There is one from Miss Guided that’s to die for. Last but not least, the booties; this pair from Lord & Taylor will most definitely complete the look. The beauty of jeans is that they can fit into anyone’s style. If you are more of a tomboy, just wear these jeans with your favorite pair of sneakers and tuck in an oversized T-shirt you love. Oh, so you’re super girly? That’s fine, just wear a cute blouse and accessorize as much as you want!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “You have to wear things that make you feel cool. That’s why I wear this jacket with everything.”
