Getting dressed in the morning is usually my favorite part of the day … that is, until this time of the year. When it’s cold enough to see your breath in the air or frost on the car, I can barely manage to pull myself out of bed let alone put clothes on! For the next two months, finding the balance between warmth, comfort and style is key.
So when Lee sent me a few pairs of jeans to try on a few weeks ago, I was A) excited to throw on an outfit that didn’t involve leggings and B) pleasantly surprised at how comfortable their denim is! I promise you, their Slimming Stretch fabric is a winter wardrobe game charger. The denim is super stretchy, contoured to fit and above all else, feels so good.
I styled two pairs in different cuts: straight leg and skinny. I loved the saturated color of the straight leg and embraced the timelessness of the denim with a simple sweater layered over a plaid shirt. Between the faded wash and the pops of plaid and leopard, it was the perfect balance between casual and cool.
I’m also a sucker for a classic black skinny jean. It’s a wear-with-anything kind of piece and a major staple in my closet. To up the ante, I added a striped top and a striking red coat for a look that’s effortlessly refined.
Two different jeans, two different looks and two more reasons to get excited to dressed in the morning!
