18 Nov Tartan Blazer with JBrand Lovestory Flared Jeans
I hope to do a post on my favorite denim in various styles and have been wanting to style these Lovestory JBrand jeans for a while now. With the selection of styles out there, you can have fun with flares like I am showing you today.
So, how was your weekend? We went to at Home, a place similar to Home Goods with a lot more square feet! I could go crazy with decorating there! I have difficulty walking and standing on those types of warehouse floors, all concrete. If I can keep moving, I do better, so I looked and browsed the aisles and saw so many wonderful decor pieces for Christmas along with home decor. We didn’t go crazy, but I did buy some Christmas pillows for our Living Room, and some metal reindeer for the mantle. I need to find some lit garland with pinecones, as our tree is more “woodland-inspired”.
Plaid and JBrand
More plaid this week on the blog, today a popular Scottish pattern of blue and green tartan. I bought this blazer a few years ago from Anthropologie. How did I make it work with the jeans? I balanced the look of the fuller flare with a more fitted upper body. The green blouse and plaid blazer are fitted with a buttoned-up look and puffed sleeves.
The JBrand jeans are a lower rise than I am used to but was reminded of the days I used to wear True Religion and other designer denim with a lower rise. The longer green blouse underneath the jacket is worn to cover the lower rise. These jeans were quite popular when flares were big in fashion. Now, I think there are so many choices, it is fun to wear different jean styles dependant on your mood. I bought these jeans on Poshmark, where I have purchased many of my designer jeans, and for a mere fraction of the cost – I paid $25! You do take a chance, but if they didn’t fit, I would just resell.
I do love the 70s vibe with flares, and because they are a wider style at the bottom – your eyes are drawn to the width of the jeans Pair them with a fitted blazer, as I have done hear or a dressy blouse that is more streamlined. Perhaps a styled lighter cashmere sweater would dress up the jeans and keep you cozy and warm. With flares like this, I like to wear a heel, and you want them long enough to see just a bit of the heel and the pointed toe- another way to elongate the look.
