This week I wanted to share with you guys a super cool denim brand. This brand is called revice jeans and they have super unique and cool jeans. I’m personally obsessed with denim so once I found this brand I had to get a pair and try them out. This pair is called the ziggy crops, they are very fitted in the waist and looser in the legs. I got a size 25 which is my regular size for denim but if you want a looser fit in the waist I would size up. These jeans have fraying on all the seams and pockets which makes them look super cool. They are also high waisted so I paired a crop top with them and since they are very interesting I wore a plain black halter top from Brandy Melville so the eye focuses on the jeans. Finally, I wore my black slip on vans to finish the outfit off. I was super excited for this outfit because one of my friends partnered with me and took all these beautiful photo’s. You should definitely go follow her on Instagram because she posts lots of beautiful photography, her Instagram is @aqalsphoto .
Happy weekend! This week I chose this outfit because it’s been super hot and cold here in Chicago (it’s different every day it seems like). But for the weekends that are super hot, I’ve been loving distressed denim. I got these overall shorts recently at a thrift store. Thrifting is a great way to get some great pieces for a good price and you can also find the most interesting things that no one else will have. This specific pair of overalls though was from forever 21 originally (tag was still on). Forever 21 has a lot of overall short, skirt, etc… options so if you’re looking for a pair you may have some luck there (I’ll tag some below). For tops, I’ve seen so many creative ways to pair overalls. I especially love the off the shoulder tops and anything with cool details paired with the overalls. Crop tops are also really cute with just a little skin peeking out of the sides. For this outfit, I paired a black tank top from Brandy Melville and then, of course, my Stan Smiths from Adidas because they are the perfect weekend sneaker. Adidas makes so many stylish sneakers in many price ranges that are comfortable and cute (linked below).
As I was thinking of outfit idea’s to show you guys, I thought of some of the go-to outfits that I always wear if I need a quick, effortless outfit. This outfit is super basic but you can change it in so many different ways. Here I’m wearing these super cool wax jeans with zippers on the ankles, I choose these because they add a little more to the outfit rather than a plain pair of jeans. A huge staple for any wardrobe is plain t-shirts, my favorite place to get t-shirts is j.crew/ j.crew factory and Madewell. The fit of your t-shirt is actually super important because if you have the wrong fit it can create an illusion that can negatively change the proportions of your body. This is something I suggest to everyone to try different styles and decide which they gravitate to the most because it makes a huge difference. This is a great outfit you can throw on quickly as well as a pair together with pretty much anything to get many different looks.
I’m super excited to share this post because denim is one of my favorite things ever. It was hard to choose just a couple of pairs that are my staple’s but I did it. I picked out all the denim I could not live without and what I believe everyone should have in their closet. I chose pretty basic category’s to show just a general idea of each type, but I think you can never have enough jeans.
The plain skinny: Of course I had to start with the plain skinny jeans. These are as basic as it gets really. You can wear these with seriously almost everything and they look amazing. The pair I’m wearing here is from joe’s jeans and I 10/10 recommend, they are so soft and they fit perfectly. This type of jeans I would splurge on because you will defiantly get your money’s worth.
The black skinny: Black skinny jeans are defiantly something everyone should have in their closet. If you have the right fit they make your legs look so long and slim. This is another one I would suggest splurging on because you wear them so much you want them to be comfortable and good looking. Mine are from Joe’s and I would defiantly recommend.
The Ripped Skinny: I love to wear ripped jeans when I’m wearing something plainer or want to add something more to my outfit. For ripped jeans whether or not to splurge is kind of blurry in my opinion, because if you wear them enough you want a comfortable, a good looking pair, but in my experience, the rip’s and distressing tend to fall apart and not look as good anymore. This pair is from American Eagle and they are ok but the denim is kind of itchy and the fit is not the best but for the price they are pretty ok.
The boyfriend Jean: Boyfriend jeans in the past couple of years have really started to make more of an appearance. I love them, they are so comfortable and they look great. This pair is from American Eagle. Normally I’m not a fan of American Eagle jeans but I’ve had these for a while now and they are still as soft and comfortable as when I bought them.
Statement jeans: Now this one I was hesitant to put in because I don’t think statement jeans are essential to everyone’s closet but I think they are still fun so I added them anyways. My style is pretty much made up of basic’s so I don’t normally buy jeans like these but when I saw them I had to have them. I thought they are were so cool. They’re ripped but they have these designs printed on them and patches placed everywhere. These are something I would defiantly save on because you’re not going to get as much wear out of them because they are memorable so you can’t wear them too often.
