This week has been, how you say stressful, to say the least!
Between traveling to multiple cities domestically to work with clients, I’ve also had two major events to attend. There’s been lots of packing, unpacking, and running for taxis and planes. But all in all it’s been a great week. I’ve even rediscovered one of my favorite traveling style staples, and that’s no other than the classic pairing of jeans and stilettos.
Yes even in this crazy warm weather of summer, I still enjoy wearing jeans and stilettos. I know for most this can seem a bit inconvenient or hard to wear but fear not…just follow my style tips below and you’ll be able to wear this easy pairing like a pro!
Easy Breezy Gi-Gi: Chambray Shirt + Boyfriend Jeans + Stilettos
For this first look you take the laid-back vibe of chambray and amp it up with touches of polished femininity. I love pairing button-up chambray shirts (in either blue or red chambray) with lightwash slouchy boyfriend jeans and white stilettos. This look can go from lunch with friends, riding on the plane, meeting with a client and everything in between!
When it comes to accessories a straw fedora and oversized sunglasses in either white or light colors help keep this look from feeling too dressy but still allows it to have the right amount of polish. If stilettos aren’t your thing, try this look with a pair of white loafers or ballet flats to get the same effect.
Summery Femme Fatale: White Sleeveless Shell + Straight Leg Jeans + Stiletto Sandals
When it comes to dramatic think monochromatic!
There’s nothing that packs more of a punch as when you wear one color head to toe. To make my femme fatale look summery, I go for pastel colors or simple all white. A fine knit sleeveless shell or mockneck turtleneck paired with straight leg jeans and stiletto sandals gives instant mystery and sexiness. To make the look more wearable for summer, I go for lighter colors.
Street Chic: Graphic Skinny Jeans + Peep-Toe Stilettos
In the midst of my super crazy schedule and gazillion meetings I had a few opportunities to go out. Of course I wore jeans, and to really kick the style factor up a notch I wore graphic print jeans with peep-toe sling back stilettos.
If you can find these type of jeans in a crop or ankle length, even better!
What makes this a perfect combination is that you can wear a basic top and simple handbag and still look super chic. It makes packing infinitely easier.
Now that you know the “how” will you be trying my favorite classic combo of jeans & stilettos?
