The Denim Jacket

I pair a jacket/blazer almost every time I post, especially in winters. I decided to post some tips on how to wear a denim jacket since I'm always wearing it.

Pulling off a denim jacket ultimately comes down to finding the one that fits. When thinking of buying a denim jacket, think of what you'l be wanting to wear it with and what kind of a look you're looking to construct. Please do not and I mean DO NOT dress like Lil Wayne and be all "young mulla babay". No.

Tips (for females AND males): 

  • Now, I know that denim on denim was quite a rage in 2012 but I suggest that you don't "double up" on denim. If you're wearing a denim jacket, that means, no denim jeans, and definitely no denim shirts.

  • If you want to mix denims, mix up the washes. Eg) extremely dark wash jeans and a faded shearling -lined (sheep wool) jacket.

  • Girls: Try pairing your jacket with a pair of leather pants or a bodycon dress. Boys: Try pairing it with a stiff pair of khakhis and a dress shirt for a casual Friday look. 

  • Though more versatile than given credit for, the denim jacket is still something of a niche piece. A time, place and a personal style climate is required to pull it off.

  • Please buy one for a look and buy according to your needs.

  • Don't wear your jacket too often, unless you want to known as "that denim jacket girl/guy", WHICH is a terrible, terrible thing to be known as. ;)

I hope my tips help you. :)

Studs & Leather

Here's a quick post since I didn't think much and I don't know what to write. Sigh. 

 Wearing: Studded Sweatshirt:, Leather pants: Zara, Rings: thrifted, Bag: Gifted, Heels: Next.

I introduced you to Stalk Buy Love in one of my posts (here). These guys also sent me this awesome studded red sweatshirt. Guys, you know that studded apparels have been trending this season.. and when I saw this sweatshirt, I couldn't resist because hey, a studded SWEATSHIRT.. WHAAAA? Honestly, this one shits on all my other varsity sweatshirts. Also, it's leather weather! I've been living in these leather pants this past one month. Hah.
