I was so excited when I was asked to participate in the Kohl’s Denim Style Challenge. The challenge was to purchase a pair of Rock & Republic jeans and create two looks. Today I’m showcasing the “casual” look. We have casual day each Friday at work and I always wear jeans, the dilemma is what to where with them. The nice thing with jeans is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Some Fridays I will throw on my sneakers and a “snarky” T-shirt and other days I will dress it up with a pair of heels and a blouse.
This is the first time I had tried on Rock & Republic so I wasn’t quite sure what style I was going to prefer. I knew immediately that this mama would not be trying on any “skinny” jeans. While my daughter will ONLY wear skinny jeans they are definitely not my style. I have more of a full curvy figure so me and skinny jeans do not get along. That left me with both the Boot Cut and Boyfriend styles. After trying both on I found that the Rock & Republic Emo Distressed Boyfriend Jeans were perfect! They were loose and tight in the right spots!
Relaxed cut through the seat and thigh combines with cuffed hems for a fashion-forward look.
I love the more distressed look in jeans and often prefer a lighter color. To create my casual look I paired it with a flannel top from Mudd, and a white tank top. Both my youngest son and daughter LOVE flannel shirts. In fact, I’ve purchased three different colors at styles at Kohl’s for my daughter. I don’t own very many closed toe shoes. In South Florida we were a lot of sandals and flip flops so to round out my casual look I wore a pair of white wedges.
Since I was going for a casual look I straightened my hair and pulled back my bangs to the side to give it that summery casual look. I’ve found that you can often change the look of an outfit simply with the style of your hair. I purchased a pretty pink flowered necklace to go with the outfit however once I tried it on with the shirt I didn’t really feel that it fit the look. I love it and can’t wear it with another outfit that will be more fitting.
What do you pair with jeans for a casual look?
Disclosure: I received a Kohl’s gift card to help facilitate this post and create the look seen above. You may read more of my disclosure here.
