STYLE TIP FOR THE WEEK
Through the years, the denim jacket has become a staple in almost everyone’s wardrobe. It is one style item we can constantly count on. It can be worn to combat the cold, chilly season and it can be worn loose as a comfortable summer statement item.
This week’s outfit features a slightly oversized denim jacket paired with a skull-printed top, black leggings and black, chunky platform boots. The denim jacket, with its rugged material, together with the chunky platforms, lends the ensemble a ‘90s grunge vibe. Wearing black skinny jeans or leggings with black shoes such as boots or platforms will give you legs for days which is perfect because you can choose to wear baggy or oversized tops without looking buried under or looking big.
Also, the denim jacket with just the right wash or shade will definitely look chic if matched with colorful or bright pieces. You can choose to wear it with a form-fitting dress that’s just the right length (and one that conforms to the school’s dress code, of course). If you are willing to take a risk with a denim-on-denim number, go for contrasting shades like dark jeans and a lighter top.
