Day 8: Skinny jeans + gingham shirt {Write 31 Days}

31 days of fall fashion ideas!

If you’ve just stumbled upon this blog, I’m participating in Write 31 Days where we write for the whole month of October. I made it a whole week so far! This past week we were styling a swing dress each day for 7 different looks. You can go back and get the links to all the outfits here. This week I’ll be doing something similar but with dark skinny jeans.

The first outfit is skinny jeans with a gingham checked shirt. I just love gingham and I’m getting quite a collection! checked shirt marked

This black and white shirt is interesting on its own due to the larger squares but I really like to pair it with blingy pearls. I like mixing the casual with the dressy.

If it cools off you can throw on a denim jacket. If you have denim vest you could try that or a puffer vest. blazer marked

Or if you want to lean towards the dressy side, top with a blazer. I would wear this to church for a dressy casual look.lace sweatshirt marked

Another option is to layer a dressy sweatshirt over the shirt. Or even a cardigan. Or a poncho. The possibilities are numerous.

To add a bit more interest, you can do a little pattern mixing by adding a leopard scarf. Or a polka dot scarf (which I’m on the lookout for.) Or floral. red scarf

If that’s too daring and you just aren’t going there (yet) then just a solid scarf with a bold color like this deep red or even the pink that I wore with the swing dress.

Skinny jeans are a veritable workhorse in the wardrobe. I started with one pair from Forever 21 which I paid less than $10 for. I now have several pairs. These are Max Jeans which I found at Marshall’s for about $25. My friend found a pair of Lee Jeans at Walmart that she likes. And they are for all shapes if you find the right pair!

What do you think of skinny jeans? Have you tried them?

  1. Yeah, I’m not doing the skinny jeans thing. LOL. Just not. Ever.

    I do, however, love gingham. Always have. Some great ideas here. I especially like the chunky pearls with the gingham shirt. The print scarf will take some getting used to, but it might grow on me.

    I don’t have very many pieces that you feature (other than scarves) but I do have a cute denim jacket. I don’t wear it very often. I should try to style it with some of my outfits now that the weather is getting cooler here. Come to think of it, I have a sleeveless red gingham shirt that would go great with it… plus make it more comfortable because I wouldn’t be dealing with the layered sleeves. I’ll have to try that soon.
