How to Take Jeans from Day to Night

header

If you are anything like us, you have a busy schedule day in and day out.  Whether it is school, work, social commitments, or what-have-you, it can be hard to find those staple pieces that will carry you throughout the day in style (and through the seasons).

This being said, today’s post is all about how you can take jeans from day to night! Specifically, the KanCan Jeans Blown Out Distressed Denim.  Can we talk about the blown out detail at the knee for a sec? LOVE. Busted knee denim is so in right now and will totally transform your look. You wouldn’t at first think that a huge hole in the knee of your pants would be so chic and trendy, but in today’s fashion world you can never be surprised! If blown out or distressed denim isn’t for you, then you will be sure to find a different pair of KanCan Jeans that will suit your needs! We swear by this denim.  They are so comfy and great quality that you will never want to buy another brand of denim again.

Wearing a pair of jeans from a day at work to a night out is so simple.  All it takes is a quick change of shoes and top and you are good to go! Denim is really on the up and up in the fashion world, and it is becoming SO much more acceptable for different occasions. Below we gave you three options on how to wear the KanCan Blown Out Knee Denim from casual to dressy.

{Casual}

Y casual 1

This look is perfect to wear while running morning errands or attending class. This windbreaker pullover is stylish yet comfortable. It gives off a super relaxed vibe, and pairing it with a pair of Converse or fashion sneakers brings it all together.

{Semi-Casual}

Y semi casual

If you have a commitment that involves dressing up a little bit without looking too fancy, then this outfit is for you.  The blown out denim still gives off a casual vibe, but layering the tops steps it up a notch.  We love pairing our denim with moto or anorak jackets. It is great for this time of the year when you aren’t quite sure what the temperature is going to be like all day! Wear this look with short booties or flats and you are ready to go brunching with the gals!

{Dressy}

Y dressy

Don’t have time to go home and fully change after work before dinner with the girls? Keep on your jeans and slip on a pair of strappy heels! This smocked crop top is also super trendy and could be paired with a denim jacket if you are brave enough to rock denim on denim 🙂 Crop tops not your style? Wear this look with your favorite peplum or wrap blouse from work, throw on some statement jewelry, and you are ready to hit the town.

How to Wear Flared Jeans

header

Now is the time for 1970’s fashion to come back in style! First step, flare jeans. But wait, what do you wear with this type of denim? Keep reading to find out how we like to style our flared denim!

Like any type of denim, it’s essential to make sure they fit your body type. This being said, hem those flared jeans! (Don’t just shy away from them!) Also, try switching it up by wearing a pair of cropped flairs or overalls with flared culottes. These trendy pieces will be sure to turn heads in any season.

Below we have shown these awesome pairs of flares that we just adore! KanCan Jeans and O2 Denim Jeans have so much to offer and they won’t break the bank!

Once you’ve got your perfect pair of flared jeans, what are you going to wear them with? From daytime casual to nightly outings, these jeans can do it all! For a casual vibe, try pairing your flared jeans with a cropped sweater or a short sleeve or long sleeve tee! (We have listed our picks below!) With flare jeans, don’t be afraid to show off that belt! Being able to accessorize is what makes these jeans so great, but the added flare kicks up your look a notch.  If it gets a little chilly, add an anorak jacket or long blazer to your look.

For a dressier appearance, look for styles with statement sleeves and prints. We picked these styles (below) that are perfect for spring and summer outings! The floral print and flowy fit are super trendy and accentuate your waist while the jeans elongate your legs! The bell sleeves pair perfectly with flare jeans and completely show off that boho inspired look you’ve been searching for.

Shoes are another decision you’ll have to make. We prefer wearing heels when it comes to flared jeans, but don’t be afraid to wear flats as long as the denim fits you right! Chunky wedges and ankle booties look fantastic as they peep out from under the flared hemline. If you’re daring enough to wear the flats or sandals, try going for a pair of cropped flares, or just make sure your hemline isn’t dragging on the ground.

Five Looks with One Key Piece: The Love Stitch Button Down

header

As the seasons change, it can be hard to find core pieces in your wardrobe that you are able to style year round.  So, we decided to help you out a bit by showing you FIVE different looks with ONE key piece! The item on topic is the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top.  Button downs and vertical stripes are super trendy and stylish, so combined they make the perfect pair! Keep reading to see how we styled this shirt five different ways! (P.S. In our opinion, we think all of these items should be core pieces in your wardrobe!)

1. Wear Alone with Denim & Sandals

1

This first outfit is great for those casual spring days and cool summer nights.  Button up this Love Stitch striped top and roll up your sleeves for some laid back vibes.  Every girl needs a durable pair of denim jeans in her closet, so why not opt for a pair of KanCan Jeans? These are the KanCan Jeans Railroad Stripe Ankle Detail in Medium Wash.  Keeping things on the casual route, we thought these Mia Shoes strappy sandals were perfect! The neutral coloring and comfort footbed make these sandals great to wear all day, every day. Depending on your style, finish off the look with a lace bralette and some basic jewelry and you are all set.

2. Wear under Overalls with Heeled Booties.

4

This next look can also go dressy or casual, depending on your plans! Overalls are totally making a comeback and we are all for it! Pairing the Love Stitch Clothing Striped Chambray Button Down Top underneath these distressed overalls makes for a super chic outfit. We paired the look with a pair of ankle booties from My Delicious Shoes! The vertical stripes and heeled booties elevate your look and give you a taller appearance. To dress down the look, try wearing a pair of Converse sneakers or flat sandals. Since we love the criss cross trend, try unbuttoning the Love Stitch shirt a little, wear this strappy tank top, and unbuckle one of the straps from the overalls!

3. Layer Over Basic Tee with Denim & Mules.

2

This third look with your key piece item is our favorite! Keeping the striped shirt open gives the look a little edge and enhances your possibilities! Now you are able to show off all of your basic or graphic tees! We paired this look with a criss cross top from Lime N Chili and KanCan jeans. Mules are also super fashionable right now, so the Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Mules just stood out to us! If you are wearing this look while taking a walk around the park or while shopping, change it up by tying your button down shirt around your waist and you’ve got a whole new look.

4. Wear with Denim Skirt & Peep Toe Heels.

5

Now, this look will be able to take you into the night in style.  The neutral, chambray coloring and vertical stripes already dress this look up.  By pairing it with this black denim skirt from KanCan, you’ll be ready for a night out in no time!  Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, roll the sleeves up or down and tuck in the shirt to your skirt. Add some statement earrings and a lace bralette and you’ve got your fourth outfit in the bag.  To dress this look up even more, rock this pair of peep toe heels by Qupid Shoes! The tall chunky heel and elastic vamp are sure to hold up while you are dancing the night away.

5. Layer Under Cardigan with Denim & Boots.

3

This last look is perfect for cold winter or fall days when you still want to be stylish. Start off with your base, a strappy basic tank top.  Then, put on your striped button down top from Love Stitch and button it all the way up or keep it open (whichever you prefer). Lastly, slip on this cozy chunky cardigan from Wishlist. Layers layers layers is the name of the game when it comes to cold weather, so why sacrifice warmth for style? With this look, you can achieve both! End the look with a pair of neutral ankle boots, like these from Qupid Shoes, and you are ready to tackle the day with your head held high.

Qupid-Tuxedo-Laser-Cut-Ballerina-Bootie---Nutmeg

The Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties

These shoes are the kind of things dreams are made of! The laser cut detailing on this shoe is some beautiful attention to detail. With a low cut style that looks wonderful with your distressed jeans. Or imagine it with a lightweight Piko dress to wear on warmer days out. We love these shoes because they are not super “heeled” like other booties for days you don’t feel like adding the extra height to your look. These booties have a dainty “ballerina shoe” feel to them, so you can feel as lightweight as these shoes when you wear them out. You can get the Qupid Tuxedo Laser Cut Ballerina Ankle Booties in a rich Nutmeg color or in an elegant Black color. Both practical and chic, these booties are a great option for the transition into the spring!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.
