Statement Jeans

 

I haven't posted any casual looks in a while, so here's an easy yet stylish every day look, perfect for these cold weather days. I always make sure my every day outfits still have that Joy factor, no matter how simple the look may be. In this outfit I feature these statement jeans with a simple black top, boots, and this gorgeous red Coach bag. 

 

I have a love-hate relationship with jeans, and you'll rarely ever see me wearing them. I prefer my bottoms more free flowing and motion accessible, most of the time with some color or pattern. And although I usually avoid wearing jeans at all costs, denim is a wardrobe must-have. When shopping for jeans (or any clothes for that matter), comfort is a deal breaker. I've spent countless hours trying on several different jeans from a variety of stores, only to end up buying one (again, rarely). I have to love the fit and feel, otherwise it's a waste of money knowing I'll never wear them. THESE jeans, on the other hand, are chock-full of comfort, style, and freedom of lower extremity motion, ultimately winning all my denim approval. They're high-waisted with a lace detail in the front, with wide legs and some distressed fringe on the hem. I paired them with my soft leather lace-up boots, and a black cropped turtleneck to avoid covering the details on the jeans. For that pop of color, I threw in my red Coach bag with a matching lip. I kept accessories to a minimum with one little gold ring to add a little sparkle.
