Ditch the Denim

Fall is here and winter is just around the corner so it won't be long before its time to retire our denim jeans for the season. Fortunately, throwing a great pair of cords into your closet can make the days seem a little warmer and cozier. And because they’re just as comfortable and versatile as jeans, they’re going to be your go-to for the coming months. Here are my style tips on pairing your cool weather cords with pieces that will update your signature style.  

Just Like Jeans. Have fun with color! Neutrals or deep jewel tone cords are on-trend. Pair with a basic t-shirt and tennis shoes for a relaxed look. Need to step it up a notch? Throw a cardigan on over the t-shirt, change to ballet flats or riding boots and finish the look with a fun ring and you’re out the door.  

Refined With A Twist. Keep your look on-trend with slim-fitting cords … straight-leg or the skinny are both versatile and stylish. Remember to choose cords in a dark neutral color such as black, grey and chocolate brown to stay within the look. Make your statement with a bold necklace or stack on bracelets to finish the look.

Have Fun With Texture. Mix it up by combining your cords with pieces that have contrasting textures. Silk and satin blouses are perfect pairings for that more classic look. T-shirts or a comfy sweater will have you feeling warm and cozy this fall. Feeling flirty and need a more feminine look? Try a lace camisole or a top with sheer material. Perfect matches!

Play Up The Color. Anytime you want to make a statement and demand to be noticed, slip on cords in a bold color such as emerald or magenta. Pair with a fitted moto or leather jacket. For a night out, switch to sexy heels or your coveted moto ankle boots.
