Style Watch

A few things in this month’s People Style Watch caught my eye…

Plaid shirts. Tim Gunn recommends them over skinny jeans to avoid a “sloppy” look. I agree, if the shirt is oversized and you are wearing it open over a tank as shown in the mag…skinny jeans is the way to go. But, if you are wearing a more fitted plaid shirt, I think it works over any cut of jean. Check out or collection of long sleeve shirts.

This Brooks and Dunn by Panhandle Slim Long Sleeve Western Plaid Snap Shirt is one of my favs.

The mag also had a blurb about denim on denim. Tim Gunn’s main point was to consider fit…and I agree. But I also think color is a main factor. He was ok with a dark on dark look where as I am not. I think matching denim ends up looking kind of off. I think it is better to have contrast…a light paired with a dark.

I’d pair thisLucky Brand Women’s Long Sleeve Palomino Denim Shirt – Freeway Wash¬†with darker jeans like these Ariat Women’s Turquoise Slim Fit Mid Rise Boot Cut Jeans – Moonshadow.

A Fall look that was featured on Sarah Jessica Parker was skinny jeans with low boots. These Dingo Women’s Adobe Rose 7″ Boots with Side Zipper are available in light or dark brown. Pair them with skinny jeans to recreate the look.

The last look that caught my eye was denim jackets with furry collars and linings. They showed Kate Bosworth rocking one. I’ll pass on the $242 version one they showed in favor of this Dickies Women’s Sherpa Lined Denim Jacket for $54.97.

What do you think? Are these looks headed into your closet for Fall?
