Blue Jeans, White Shirt

Blue Jeans #1

Lana Del Ray‘s “Blue Jeans” has been a favorite of mine since I first heard it. I admit that I didn’t understand the hype about Lana until I heard that song. Then I got hooked. I even have it as a ringtone… So it was only natural to be inspired by it for a blog post. I find songs very inspiring in fashion design. When I hear a song, I visualize a “video clip” on my head and that’s when the styling begins…

I’m a fan of the blue (jeans)-white (shirt) combination, especially for summer. I believe it’s an easy-to-achieve combination that can be ranged from totally effortless (think slouchy jeans and a loose t-shirt) to a more polished up look for night (combined with high heels, fancy clutches, statement necklaces and whatever strikes your fancy). Of course there are many in beetween styles, which depend on the color and look of the jeans (ripped jeans give a more casual tone, whereas skinny dark ones are more “formal”) and of course the style (ranging from camisoles to shirts ) and the embellishement of the top.

For this post I created 2 looks based on the blue jeanswhite shirt combination: the first one is a the going-out look, while the second one is a more everyday look! The first look incorporates elements such as dark skinny jeans, a white embelished top, a rad clutch (it’s Marc by Marc Jacobs by the way) and of course heels. I would wear this outfit for drinks around town and probably combine it with some statement earrings or a cool bracelet. The second look pairs boyfriend jeans with a soft camisole, nude shoes and a crossbody bag.

    That’s a very unique method to visualise a styling mood board. We all know music can evoke all sorts of feelings and emotions but I haven’t heard anyone say it inspires their fashion styling. Love that concept. Got both dark denim and light blue bf jeans and all sorts of white shirts to match them with. It’s a go-to look when everything else doesn’t work. It never fails to be chic 🙂
