Ready for something a little different for the weekend? How about a little funky with fringe trim jeans? These came in my last Trunk Club and I couldn’t wait to try them on!
Are these fringe trim jeans funky or what? Of course, they are a designer brand, so are a bit over the top price-wise. But I wanted to share them with all of you just for fun. I also thought they needed to stand out in this outfit, which they would do anyway, so I styled them with basic pieces: a simple, feminine top and a white belt.
I have to tell you: I haven’t worn a belt in I don’t know how many years! Maybe I was a little too chunky (or thought I was–body-conscious self-doubter of the past!). Belt looks haven’t exactly been trending either. I have some belts left over from my 20’s and 30’s, but they seem very small now when I pull them out. Was I really able to wear them?! I think maybe the body has changed! Haha! In any case, these jeans just called for a belt, so on my weekly trek to Target I found a cute cut-out white belt and it seemed just right! The price certainly was!
This top is a basic blouse from my traditional working days. You can see a similar one here. With the standout look of these jeans, simplicity works best. I also wanted something a bit feminine to contrast with the funkiness of the fringe trim jeans. You never want to overdo a look with quality statement pieces competing for attention. One statement per outfit is generally enough.
These two-tone slides are also a great addition to a summer wardrobe. Comfy, yet stylish, and at under $50, the price is right!
Statement earrings (similar here) are also trending this spring, so the sky’s the limit! These silver chandeliers truly make a statement at an affordable price. And the white clutch bag is a great piece to have in your wardrobe–you never know when it might give just the right touch to your outfit!
The Style tip
So what makes this outfit work? Mixing inexpensive, trendy items with designer pieces: this simple, feminine top, an inexpensive belt, statement earrings, and neutral slides complimented by Tory Burch jeans. This is an example of how to make these different price points work together.
Are you feeling funky? Give these fun fringe trim jeans a look for something different. And keep it simple to make a statement.
Until next time…
