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}

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}

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 a Shirt Tied Around Your Waist

The 90’s called. And they had some great fashion advice! Who knew that part of the grunge trend would be revived in fashion trends we see today? We always hear that fashion repeats itself, and it is obvious that 90’s fashions are coming back in a big way. This summer we saw crop tops, high-waisted shorts, and plaid apparel integrating their way into our wardrobes. One of the hottest 90’s grunge-inspired trends this season is the shirt tied around the waist.

Button-up shirt

Shirt tied around your waist

There are not too many rules when it comes to wearing the around-the-waist shirt wrap. However, we have some tips and guidelines that will allow you to look your best. The first rule of thumb when sporting this look is to choose a button-down shirt with arms long enough to tie around your waist. This is when your boyfriend’s wardrobe could come in handy! An oversized button-down plaid or flannel shirt works best.

Thread and Supply Button-up shirt

The button-up shirt doesn’t always have to be flannel or plaid. The shirt-around-the-waist look doesn’t have to portray a super casual look either. If you look, you will see celebrities wearing everything from plaid shirts to leather jackets around their waists. They also do a great job of bringing otherwise casual wear to effortless chic and polished looks. Celebrities and other fashionistas have been spotted pairing leather and heels with button-up shirts.

Since the 90’s revival of fashion first appeared on the runway, celebrities had the upper hand with jumping on this trend first. Here are some celebrity spottings:

How to Wear a Flannel or Plaid Shirt | Men’s Style Blog

Silver Jeans for Men

 1. Plaid or Flannel Shirts with Jeans

A great way to rock your plaid flannel shirt is to wear it with a casual pair of jeans. Depending on how casual you want to look, you can wear your shirt buttoned-up or left unbuttoned. If the plaid in your shirt features light colors in its pattern, a pair of dark wash jeans will look great. Alternatively, a dark plaid shirt worn buttoned-up could also be paired with khaki pants.  Either ensemble would be great to wear to a party or other casual gathering.

If you want to be more creative and get more use out of your plaid shirt, try layering it under or over a sweater. Layering plaid shirts with sweaters in this manner exudes a sort of sophistication. Since your plaid shirt probably has a variety of colors and a busy pattern, it would look best under a solid colored sweater. This look is not just for the off-duty intellectuals. Anyone can try this look!
