So here is my denim edit and my final of the three looks I styled for Karen Millen. You can read about the Workwear Edit here and about the Prints Edit here. I adored styling all three outfits, however this would be my favourite as I can see my self wearing this look everyday. Of course once the weather gets warmer I would leave the coat off.
These gorgeous pair of High Waisted Skinny Jeans were my base piece to styling this whole look. I absolutely love anything that comes in the high waisted design, whether its a pair of shorts, skirts, trouser or a pair of jeans like this one. They just seem to elongate my legs and also cinch me in the waist giving me that much needed hourglass shape. These high waisted skinny jeans are in the dark denim rinse and have some stretch to them. I found them to be very comfortable to wear and not too rigid either. Love the crossover on the waistband and the silver button detailing at the front, they are non-functional but give the jeans that extra flare in my opinion.
Next I decided to style this White Balloon Sleeve Shirt with the jeans. Just elevates the look and makes it look so much less casual. The balloon sleeves on this shirt is what drew me to them in the first place. A tailored shirt which is fitted through the body, the length of the sleeves are elbow length and it has these gorgeous pleats on the shoulders where the sleeves start. My perfect kind of combination, dark denim with a crisp white statement shirt. This is how I prefer to wear my denim but I could have gone for a t-shirt like the one here or a top like this one here for a more casual look.
On to the shoes and I opted for theses Black Knitted Stretch Ankle Boots. You may have seen in my previous posts how much I adore stretch boots. These are so easy to slip on and are extremely comfortable to wear given that these have stiletto heels. I could have easily have gone for these blocked heel boots here instead. For me the pointed boots visually looked great and how I envisaged them to be. They worked rather well on I tried them on and just added to the lengthening of my legs.
For some added colour I opted for this Yellow Rounded Cross-Body Bag here. This bag works so well with the accent colour on the checked coat. Of course you can not see the bag in the pictures here. I was given these pictures and therefore did not get to choose the ones I wanted. Love them both and it would have been great to have one with the bag in so you could see. Its the leather satchel bag and here is what Karen Millen say about it “Crafted from luxurious leather with a stylish (and functional) press-lock opening, it’s the understated piece that will soon become your daily go-to. Its compact size and cross-shoulder adjustable strap make it the perfect accessory for days out that turn into nights out.”
I could not get over how gorgeous this Heritage Check Double-Breasted coat is, a perfect checked coat which is a must-have. It is tailored to perfection in my opinion and sits so well on my shoulders and brings the whole look together. As for the finishing touches I wore these Cube Caged Pearl Earrings which are really pretty and subtle. As for my make-up I wore Ruby Woo Lipliner and Lipstick from M.A.C to inject some colour and finish my entire look.
Here is my finished look and I am so happy with the way I styled the pieces together. In my opinion a perfect look to a lunch meeting or in my case just for school drop off. A perfect pair of denim to add to my wardrobe for Spring/Summer, which can also be transitioned into Autumn/winter too. It was such a pleasure and a dream come true to work on this campaign with this brand. I am so grateful to Karen Millen for giving me this opportunity to work with them.
