Ahhhh, I’m finally back to writing after an eventful, some good, some not, early fall. But as I sit here blogging today all is fine in my world!
We are almost into November and by now, even with some warm temps at times, your fall pieces should certainly be in your closet. And some of those pieces will surely include jeans. With so many styles, cuts, and colors to choose from how do you decide? My first suggestion is to have a critical eye for the fit. Too tight and you come off trying to look younger than you are or like you should be hanging out on a street corner. Too baggy and it just looks sad.
Although this post isn’t really about appropriate cuts for your body I will suggest that you have a good boot cut, a good dark wash denim of any cut, and if appropriate for your body type, a straight leg or skinny jean. If you only look good in one cut, I’d make it a dark wash for fall/ winter.
I’m taking some images from a site I like called refinery29.com. It covers a lot of different style topics. This one deals with denim but not just jeans. It’s a slideshow and the whole thing can be seen here.
I like parts of this outfit. Love the jeans and shirt together. It’s very relaxed and shows how to wear 2 denims at the same time….different washes is key. The hat adds some fun and the belt some glit. Very modern but casual. I’d do a flat instead of a metallic hightop (what were they thinking?) And that bag, wow! A splurge for sure but very cool.

This look is kind of no brainer. Simple denim skirt, blouse, flats, and a cool necklace. You could easily add boots; and I even like the longer sweater. I can see it being worn like a jacket. If it’s too much, don’t bother with it. A trench would look fabulous as well. For a more demure look, a regular cardigan could be used. That little pointy flat is really cute.

This is actually my favorite of the slides. I love the shift, the denim jacket, and especially the boots! I like that they added tights since cooler weather is upon us. And while the dress is boxy, the jacket will pull it in to create a waist plus your legs will appear very slender. But if you are on the larger side, I probably wouldn’t recommend this particular look. Lastly, a statement necklace always works!

Again, checkout the entire slideshow. You may get some other ideas. If these looks are not your style, you/we :) can always tweak them to work for you or your body type. These are really just to get your imagination working with your own wardrobe. Unless of course, you choose to buy it all then I’m totally for that too!
Uh oh, just realized this is mostly blue, like my last post! Oh well, hope you enjoyed it anyway:)
As always, thanks so much for reading. It’s been awhile and I’m happy to be writing again. Please call or email with any questions or for appointments. I am booking into the first week of November or later. Can’t believe the holidays are just around the corner!
