How I Style My Vintage Straight Leg Jeans

One thing I have loved for the last year or so is a great pair of vintage looking straight leg jeans. Now the pair that I’m featuring today is not actually vintage, so you can actually purchase your own pair, but they have a vintage look and feel. My washed black straight leg jeans are from Topshop and I’ve shared them in a few previous posts. I think they are the perfect extra long straight leg jean! Most straight leg jeans are ankle length or cropped, so I loved that these had the extra length. Keep on reading to see how I styled these jeans! Everything will be linked as long as it is still available, or I will try to find something similar!

Outfit #1

This first outfit is work appropriate, but can easily be transformed into a more casual look by taking off the brown corduroy blazer. I paired a plain white turtleneck tee underneath for an extra layer and my favorite black heels from Naturalizer. I love this look because it’s versatile, but still put together. It looks really chic, in my opinion.

Outfit #2

This second look is the most casual and I actually wore this out to dinner a few weeks ago! I’ve shared this cardigan a few times already, but it’s from Target and I love the pretty muted teal blue color. I tucked it in the my jeans to add some shape and wore the same black heels. I would even wear this to go out with friends on a Friday night if I wanted to be comfortable and casual!

Outfit #3

This one is my favorite and probably the coziest out of all of them. I took the same white turtleneck from the first outfit and layered it under this forest green alpaca and wool blend sweater from & Other Stories. The sweater is super warm and the turtleneck gives even more warmth. I paired it with the same black heels because I love the way they look with the volume of the jeans and also the volume on top from the sweater. This would be great for a casual look for work or lunch on the weekends!

How to Style: Denim Skirts

I thought I would do another mini “How to Style” post because not sure why, but I’m very into denim skirts this season. They are just as versatile as regular denim jeans or shorts but more feminine and put together I think. So I wanted to share a few ways I’d like to style them.

Outfit #1

A pretty button down top is a really easy way to dress up a denim skirt. It’s put together an feminine but the skirt says “I can still have fun” which I like. It’s a safe contrast, you know. Adding the sneakers keeps it casual too so it’s easy for a nice day outside!

Outfit # 2

This one is for those days it’s still a little chillier or even at night when it’s chilly but you need to dress up a little more than usual. A light sweater is a good option because it’ll keep you warm if you need but still nice and casual. It’s also a great idea when it’s time to transition back to fall (too soon?)

Outfit # 3

This one is definitely the most casual and easy to wear. A simple t-shirt and denim is always a good choice! This Budwesier shirt basically says “I’m fun” and the denim skirt and sneakers says “but I’m also casual”. It’s such a perfect pair. This one might be my favorite!
