THREE WAYS TO WEAR YOUR FAVORITE DENIM

We all have our routines and we love them. We thrive by them. For me, routines are vital and if they continually slip—especially now that I have a family to look after—I get stressed, depressed, and unhappy. It’s simply impossible to have a full-time job and be a mother if I don’t follow our happy military family routine.

One of the happy routines I have is the “getting-dressed routine” in the morning—this always starts with picking a pair of jeans. On a weekday when I don’t have any specific meetings, I wear jeans almost always. Every season, I have a few favorite pairs that I keep on rotation, and then there are “new pairs” I try when I work on brand collaborations.

Last week was one of those moments when I got to try three new styles from 7 For All Mankind – I’ve been wearing the brand since college and would literally spend every dime I had to buy a pair. Back then, it was one of those brands we all had to have in our wardrobes. Today, I’m much more into fit and quality than I am into brand names, and 7FAM is a brand that I continue to wear.

Here I’m showing you three different styles—the skinny jean is NOT dead—in three different ways. The first look is a very trend sensitive one, in which I wear the 7FAM high-waisted cropped jeans with released hems, under multiple layers. Ideal length and super soft, almost as if you’re not wearing any jeans. Perfect for the always-changing spring weather.

The second look is a smart casual way of dressing, which I like for when I have meetings around town. Again a ankle-length jean, because it goes so well with my height. A dark wash always feels very sophisticated to me. It’s simple, but perfect when combined with a few other statement pieces.

Look number three is definitely one I would wear as a “day-to-night” look. I can wear the black skinny with a denim shirt to the office and just add heels—it’s perfect for meetings, but especially for drinks after work. Super soft and lightweight with a high waist, which I love, and deep dark black wash. A wardrobe staple.
