While I’m not a formal New-Year’s-Resolution-maker, I do think a return to routine after the holiday festivities and the mental “clean slate” that a New Year brings offer a chance to re-boot some good habits, and look for opportunities to refresh and renew both our energies and physical surroundings.
I thought it would be fun to look at some little style and beauty tweaks that will freshen up our look now and carry us into Spring, and will feature a few of these “refresh” posts over the next month or so. Because jeans are my Default Setting and I wear them several days per week, it seemed a good place to start.
When I went to see Garance Doré at her book signing, she was wearing a pair of grey skinny jeans with a black top and heels, and I loved the look: simple, sleek and sophisticated. I’ve worn and shared some outfits with grey denim in the past, and her styling has inspired me to take a fresh look at this option and ways to style it.
Grey denim isn’t new; it’s been drifting in and out of vogue for the last few years, so even though it was supposedly a “hot” trend for fall, I think this is a trend with legs, if you’ll pardon the pun. It’s a look that will work well with lighter outfits come spring and summer, and is a nice change-up from various shades of blue. There are styles available from skinny to boyfriend to flares, and shades from charcoal to fog.
Two that I’ve recently tried and liked are these boyfriend jeans from Eileen Fisher in a color called “asphalt” (a nice medium grey)…
And these “Verdugo” jeans from Paige which are made from a wonderfully soft fabric.
Do you have any grey denim in rotation? How do you like to style it?
