Here is 'The outfit of this week' (OOTW).
If you are new to the WOW NOW community, this is how the 'OOTW' works. Once a week I will send you a photo of one of my outfits. I will explain the individual pieces including the accessories.
It will be all about how and why they all work together. Where did I get it from and where did I wear it to.
It will be a great inspiration when creating your outfits!
Jeans! I love jeans.
I grew up wearing jeans most days until I started my corporate life, then Friday to Sunday was a jeans day.
I've heard so many times women struggling with casual Friday. But let me tell you, you look perfectly polished and stylish in jeans. You can perfectly wear them to go to work on a casual dress day.
In this photo I am just wearing a simple top, but I used accessories and mid high heel boots making it slightly more dressy that if I was wearing a tan top and flat shoes with no accessories.
I wore this outfit to a lunch on a Sunday with friends. But could easily wear it to the cinema or any other day activity. I also wore a black jacket as the day was a bit chilly. The jacket can also make it more dressy.
The key to making jeans more dressy is the colour. The darker the jeans the more dressy they will look. So I always recommend you own at least one pair of dark jeans and one pair of black jeans.
Jeans look great with jackets in colours. And when you add a pair of medium to high heels, voila! Then you have a super nice casual but polished outfit for a Casual Friday at work or even a night out.
I am wearing: Top: Marc Jacobs. Jeans: Gstar. Boots: Zomp last year. Bracelet: Bali. Earrings: COL.
* (COL) means they are a Colombian brand or purchased in Colombia ;)
I shared this photo on the outfit of the week at the end of May. You can revisit the article here.
These 2 are great examples on how to dress up jeans a bit. Note all that is different from the photo above is that the tops are a bit dressier and the accessories are too.
Below is an article that was in the Western Australian newspaper where I shared some tips to pick up a great pair of jeans.
So now it's your turn. Do you own a pair of good fitting jeans in a dark colour? If not I highly recommend you get at least one ;)
Have an amazing week!
