STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Relax

From your mother’s closet to your own, skinny jeans are a stylish staple that can be dressed up or dressed down. Sometimes, it feels like it’s the only option when it comes to pants. Let’s face it, skinny jeans are a simple sillouhette that can get you out of the door and to class in no time. Take a break and relax. Let this Fashionista inspire you to branch out into a more relaxed and masculine fit.

Boyfriend jeans can seem aspirational in the way they are pulled off by fashion’s elite on the streets. For this look, no boyfriend is necessary. When shopping for a pair, choose denim that fits well on your hips. From there you can take your pick of light-wash, dark-wash, ripped– the options are endless. Venture into thrift shops or even your siblings closet for this pair.

Anyone can style this look with some sneakers, a button-down and a leather jacket. For a more relaxed look, try adding your favorite large sweater. This Fashionista’s white cowl neck sweater was a holiday favorite you’ll wear through the chilly spring weather. Add your favorite blanket scarf and long wool coat for a model off-duty feel. Whether you are headed to brunch with friends or a long day of work at the studio, proper footwear is necessary. This Fashionista’s suede lace-up boots are great for the miles or feet you’ll be walking.
