Models’ off-duty style is all the rage in the fashion industry right now. It is a blend of high-fashion pieces, the influence of working with the best designers and stylists in the industry and a natural ability for combining things in a cool and effortless way.
Joan Smalls is someone who I always enjoy seeing out and about. She attended the premiere of “The Bully Project” at the Tribeca Film Festival in a relaxed yet chic look consisting of a denim jacket, sheer black t-shirt, a pleated white mini and black ankle boots. I loved the ensemble and it’s perfect for a multitude of occasions from Casual Fridays at work (with a skirt slightly longer in length), weekends out shopping and nights out.
Denim jackets are something that I constantly buy. Perhaps not every Spring, but definitely every other. From a classic dark denim Gap piece to a tie-dyed version from Celine under direction of Michael Kors, the ones hanging in my closet vary. Here are my top picks for the best styles for Spring.
As you can see, the above choices are all lighter denim and the reason for this is because I really like the idea of pairing light denim with dark denim opposed to the opposite. I think it looks super cool and kind of offbeat, thus it makes sense to have three lighter-colored styles. I believe that Joan Smalls’ ensemble would have looked equally as great if she had chosen a light denim version as well.
Smythe’s Equestrian Jacket ($695) is actually made of linen, but has a denim look and its leather elbow patches make it an amazing pick for Spring. Classic is the best word to describe NOTIFY’s Coquelicot Stretch Denim Jacket ($280) that will go with virtually every outfit you put together for the season. One can never go wrong with Prada and the Denim Peacoat ($895) is sophisticated as well as being a great investment piece for your wardrobe.
