4 of Our Favorite Denim Trends

What’s not to love about stylist denim pieces?

Denim happens to be a material that is completely versatile. Pieces made of denim can easily be dressed up or for casual relaxation.

Let’s talk basics.

You should own at least one pair of skinny jeans, a pair of high waist jeans, and your go-to embellished denim. However, it never hurts to expand your denim collection, beyond the surface. We’re bringing you our personal denim fav’s to rock for fall.

Momma Knows Best

We love to get inspiration from things we’re familiar with…


These babies are no exception.

We all strive to be just like Mom… Even in her denim selects!

The vintage inspired style, known as mom jeans are quickly on the rise. Doesn’t matter if you’re into pure denim, or care for a little bleaching… Mom Jean’s are hitting the scene with emphasis. Channeling to 90s vibe, these jeans feature a high, cinched waist. Usually worn to harp on the physique, these jeans focus on the curves. We’ve been peeping a ton of these at local thrift shops, making it easy for you to snag your pair. They look great with a tucked blouse and cuffed at the ankles.

Trench Coats on Deck!

It’s about to get really chilly in here.

We’re digging the latest spin on the trench coat.

These denim overcoats are everything. Perfect addition to your closet due to their warmth and fashion edge. A denim overcoat can be layered on top of denim or rocked with your favorite colored slacks.

You’ve got options!

The fabric is the new-age neutral and can complete any look.

Denim Mini Skirt

The denim mini is pushing it’s way out of summer fashion and straight into fall. It’s also a trend that is defying fashion rules- It refuses to leave quietly.

By accentuating your legs and your favorite pair of shoes, this wardrobe staple is an keeper. From frayed distressing to full embroidering, denim skirts are being spotted at all of the best retailers.

Although most are under the impression that denim skirts are only for summer, we beg to differ. Pairing your denim skirt with a cowl neck sweater and over the knee boots brings this trend into season.

Denim Jackets

Baggy equals better.

Oversized denim jackets are more of a necessity than ever. These chic jackets are usually pulled from vintage menswear and work so well with most pieces in your closet.

Worried about keeping your jacket exclusive?

Give the jacket a little personal touch by adding embroidery, cutting the sleeves, layering, or even releasing the hem.

Denim is the new wardrobe essential these days.

You can remain casual for a day running errands, or add details that will dress it up for your next night out with the girls.

The proper denim style and item remains versatile and can fit any body type.

Since the summer is over, you’d better rack up before it’s too late!

Street Style Feels.

One of the greatest parts of cities that have established or evolving fashion scenes doesn’t only consist of the amazing fashion parties, runway shows and endless art filled events.. What about the people that attend them? After studying street style fashion from London’s Spring ’18 Menswear Shows and Pitti Uomo in Florence, I fell in love with the notion of street style all over again. What is street style? Self expression and identity displayed unapologetically. That’s my definition. A sense of style that is never created within design studios, but from the grassroots of the streets and the youth. Often times, we feel we are obligated to mirror a particular trend or celebrity’s sense of style… But, why? Is it because this is all that we see on social media, in magazines, and within society? Probably so. Looking through this collection of photographs, everyone seems to be within their own realm- within their own lane. It seems as if each person woke up that morning and decided to actually express themselves through their clothing- like they decided to defy society’s stencil of what they should look like.

Looking through photos of unique people in places that are far, far away from me- I’ve noticed something. Living in Cincinnati, a budding city with a ton of creative potential, I often see little to no individuality. There are a handful of creatives trying to work towards something here, something that will build a fashion scene- but it’s difficult because the masses don’t support individuality. As we are trained to remain conservative and repetitive in the careers we choose, the lives we live and the way that we look- Does this just become the cycle?

What is it going to take to gain more individuals who are comfortable in their own skin? Setting their own trends? Creating their own looks through research, fashion inspiration and more?

I guess I’m tired of seeing us all look alike and act alike. It’s like a city of robots.

But, who will break the cycle?

I think the lack of creativity blooms into a bigger picture that fashion- it grows into how we actually feel about ourselves, how we hold ourselves accountable within society, and how we lack positive change.

Unlike New York City or Los Angeles, Cincinnati is not necessarily a fashion capital of the world. So, we aren’t often handed the opportunities that creatives are given within those fashion capitals of the world. We have to work for them, build them. We have to start somewhere. But, us all looking alike and doing the same things won’t change that or open our eyes.

We have something thriving here, but we need to be different to impact the world.

I think we have a culture too.

We just haven’t tapped into it yet.

Menswear is most comfortable- It’s a proven fact.

For some reason, I feel like women wearing menswear is extremely arousing and provoking.

Whenever I’m shopping, I rarely stay in the women’s section.

Sometimes I feel like it’s a very sheltered section with the average pieces.

Sometimes I want more.

I shopped my whole look from the men’s section at my local thrift shop.

I never thought to put these pieces together, this kind of came together as I was getting ready.

Oversized, droopy and baggy- These were goals for the day

There is something refreshing about wearing all white…

In my opinion.

It’s such a clean and sleek look.

I think wearing any color in a monochromatic fashion can tend to get boring-

If you don’t take the time to break it up or switch it up.

Yesterday, I made sure to do just that.

I decided to pair my white, chain jeans with a lengthy with button up top.

I topped the look off with a cream blazer over the shoulders to take it ‘there’

I decided to take an androgynous approach with my top by buttoning it to the top.

I kept my glam simple, with a burgundy lip and a high ninja bun.

My goal was to look as edgy in white as possible.

My white clutch and nude heels were the accessories for my look.

I stayed away from earrings and necklaces, just keeping the focus on the key pieces.

I never really go out without earrings- This was different for me.

This look was comfortable, chic and clean.

Soft TEE.


Although today has been hectic, I still managed to remain stylish at the same time.

Meeting, emails, and phone calls don’t mean you can’t keep it cute- Right?

 I’ve been completely obsessed with this oversized tee that I found at H&M.

It’s made from cotton, it’s comfortable and it has length- Which I love.

Black is always easy for me, and shoes can always dress up any tee.

Since it was so warm and muggy today, I decided to rock this as a short dress.

With my height, I wanted to add heels of some sort to stop myself from looking frumpy.

I think it worked!

This look was lightweight and manageable.

 I’ve never been a huge accessory person, I wear what’s necessary.

Today called for my watch, a chain bracelet, hoops and a simple necklace (or two).

I’m a huge follower of minimal fashion, editorials and all that.

So, I mimic some things that I see through my own personal style.
IMG_2084IMG_2091I had to sport the top bun for today to keep hair off of my neck.

My glam was simple, with a red lip to give my look a pop of color.

I tried to keep it simple and sleek- Nothing more. IMG_2095IMG_2097IMG_2092

Selfie Central.

Throughout the year, I’ve covered a ton of ground regarding my career as a fashion stylist. I have worked with creatives that I never thought I’d be in the same room with. I’ve created work, styled shoots and I’ve truly challenged myself as not only a stylist, but as an artist. Through it all, I’ve managed to focus on constructing a level of personal style for myself. I’m a huge fan of social media, and I’ve been documenting my personal styling journey with every chance that I get. If you know me, then you know that I’m a selfie queen. So, when I’m unable to fully document my look of the day with a professional camera, I always make an attempt to snap a selfie! These are some of my favorite selfies featuring my looks of the day from the year. Enjoy!
