I love dressing up for a fashion event, but am the first to admit that the outfits you see outside the shows at Fashion Week (wherever the city) can get a little ridiculous. I once saw someone wearing an actual wetsuit on the front row, complete with goggles. Street style images can often provide lots of playful—albeit sometimes bonkers—styling ideas—but let’s be honest, many are things that just wouldn’t translate out of this outfit circus. But this year, I’ve been impressed by quite how simple people have kept it. Yes, I’m sure if you look hard enough you’ll find a wetsuit somewhere or at the very least an outfit that would cause a commotion in your local Pret, but this year there’s more jeans than WTF fashions.
There are several denim outfits in particular that have stood out to me among the street style images. They all revolve around the same basic, a classic pair of blue jeans (mainly straight-legs), but the items they’re paired with really make an impact. So if you are in the market for new ways to wear your old jeans—keep scrolling for the outfits I’ve saved to try this year.
