lets all face it..sometimes we all feel so uninspired by our own closets that we forget the things we do have especially when it comes to your denim, not the most exciting topic right?
Well…. this past week we had the chance to produce, style, and be the JEANious host for the Jean Drive Event at the Montebello mall. One of my favorite things to do is teaching women of different shape size on HOW to wear outfits that flatter your body type the best. Jeans are an essential to every woman’s closet, right? well yes and no….I can say I was never a fan on jeans, I always found myself much more comfortable in my leggings and an oversized shirt than a pair of skinny jeans. As alot of you guys know I am HUGE on comfort, so when The Gap came out with the most amazingly fit and comfortable JEGGINGS (leggings + Jeans) and they asked us to do a segment on this for the Jean Drive event.. I was thrilled!
We had an awesome event teaching ladies how to fancy up their denim without going broke! Whether its the “denim on denim” look or layering technique we all walked out of the event inspired to face our own closet!
Look how cute our model Hannah Mae is teaching the young and fresh fashionistas..they were asking us “Back To School” questions on what they should wear on their first day of school! ADORABLE!
Here are a couple of MUST know how to or Must Haves
1. Gap Jeggings- Cannot express my love for these stretchy and THE most comfortable pair of jeans I own. They have em in all wash of colors too!
2. Denim Jacket and know how to work the Denim on Denim look. Make sure the top layer denim is lighter in color and fabric than the bottoms to make this look work without it looking “80’s”
3. Keep your jean shorts around for the fall and just add a pair of sheer tights underneath to make them look Fall appropriate
4. Statement jewelry- this by far is my rule of thumb to any outfit, have the right jewelry that makes an outfit “pop” I love statement pieces against simple outfits (Think a pair of jeggings and a simple casual shirt and BAM an amazingly bold necklace!) Forever 21 has some amazingly fun and affordable pieces!
The Denim Drive will be happening all through out August so come donate your jeans for a great cause! We will continue our Denim Drive event next week at the Los Cerritos Mall, so come learn, shop, and lets talk about your Blue Crush!
