A little while back, I did this post about wearing work pieces casually. I love creating different outfits by mixing work clothes in with more casual clothes–it’s a fun way to extend a wardrobe. But, it’s also fun to take your casual pieces and dress those up, too! How many times have you Texas ladies worn your cowboy boots and jeans, for instance? How many times have you worn them on a Saturday night that doesn’t involve two-stepping or eating BBQ? Same goes for jeans and any flat boot, really, but we’re in Texas, so…Try this next time you’re going out with the ladies!
- Wear your slim-cut or straight-leg dark jeans tucked into your boots.
- Wear similar colored boots and jeans (dark on dark). This combo will appear more sophisticated and also lengthen your legline.
- Pair a sexy blouse with your jeans/boots combo. Select something in a simple, flattering cut. If it’s easier, wear all black!
- If you still don’t feel that dressy, add some sparkly jewelry in the form of a long necklace (as I did) or some big ole earrings.
So there you have it. I am sure lots of you, being from Texas, have already worn this combo, but this look would be super cutting edge where I come from! I love playing with opposites, and this is a super comfortable way to do it.
Oh, and P.S. My Urban Dealight Deal is gonna run through October 1st, so you can still try out my services on the cheap!
