It’s February, still winter for some but here it’s mild.
Denim has always been timeless. The styles just evolve over the years. This year we are seeing a lot of the distressed look.
Whether it is torn along the legs or just an uneven jagged-style hem.
I just purchased this pair from Old Navy. They were originally $49.99 but were on sale for $35.
I thought they were super cute, esp. the darker wash.
Only the bottom hem is unfinished.
I paired it with a lightweight over-size type blazer which is also big this spring!
Here are a few others for example:
(These I found in Glamour magazine)
You can see there are different styles to choose from.
Whether you layer up or just throw on a light jacket of some sort, it works.
Until next time
Hey Fashion Ladies,
I’m a sucker for trendy and a bit edgy fashion. I think it brings a lot of fun into any outfit.
My new obsession is a cropped length jean with no hem, just frayed on the bottom. Nothing too extreme. I also love some fray in the legs but again not too bare. I have seen several styles for example:
Some of the jeans are too torn, especially in the knee area.
But some styles are so fun. They are not too torn, just slightly. I also believe they look great with sneakers or you can dress them up with heels. Either way I think the look is workable. Here are two examples I have seen:
I think even at my age I can definitely pull this off!
So, here is how I styled the frayed jean look for a casual look.
Jeans – Zara Shoes – Adidas
Or a little dressed up
Shoes – Nine West (Older style)
Either way I think it looks great.
See you next time.
Hi, remember back in Junior & High School ( this is for us baby boomers) there was a actually a dress code that did not allow girls to wear pants to school. Maybe not all schools but definitely mine in the Northeast. A common practice in the winter season was walking to school with a pair of pants under a dress or skirt. What a drag that was because once you got to school you would have to change. But at the same time warmth was a priority.
Who thought this combination could become a fashion trend? Well it did.
I saw this in a recent posting and thought how cute!
It definitely looks different than I remember!!
Also, shorter length dresses and skirts are back but, I believe I’m too old to wear one. I set out to put a similar look together.
I decided not to add the coat and hat (let’s make it simple.)
So after some changes I went with this.
Jeans – Gap Dress – H&M Shoes – Nine West (similar)
What do you think?
Jeans are always a classic so I added this Mini dress from H&M (which is now on sale).
It’s mixing two styles to create a cool different look. I added the low heel pumps to look more modern. You could substitute for wedge heels.
Some could wear the dress alone, I just chose not to. I like the look. It works for in-between weather especially with Spring on the way!
Look outside the box
Keep with transitional pieces
Have fun with it
Now you know I like to find cool looks and duplicate them with either what I already have or can purchase for a lower price. I love doing that.
So, as I was going through one of my emails from Banana Republic I noticed this really cool look that I knew I could do from the clothing I already own.
I am really loving the boyfriend/girlfriend style of jean. To modernize the look they are cuffed 3 to 4 inches. Looks good at 1 to 2 inches above the ankle.
Here’s the Banana Republic look: (of which I really love)

I have jeans that are not so distressed (for me I think that is too young looking).
Part of fun is how they are cuffed.
One picture is the girlfriend/boyfriend style. The other is straighter but has a deep cuff.
I have an Old Navy pair that is lighter in color but less distressed, or even a straight leg dark blue Levi jean that looks classic.
Now to make the outfit more fun, let’s add a Houndstooth purse. I am seeing this purse all over for fall. What a fun accessory to add. Also, lets add a denim jacket. It’s a timeless classic piece.
Here is my look:
Old Navy Levi’s
Accessories can add to the look!
Heels Nine West (previously shown)
Purse no specific brand (previous purchase from TJ MAXX) similar here or here.
Vest, vests, vests any length
Denim can be mixed with any accessory
