Denims are year-round essentials, so it’s by no surprise that an ensemble I’ve been gravitating towards a lot this season is the distressed jeans + pastel-colored blazer combo. A surefire way to combat shivers while keeping the stylish factor in check, the pairing is great for adding a bit of polish to your ensemble without stringently looking like those boys that sell insurance by the doorstep (sadly those ads always pop up when I’m watching TV).
What I love about this business casual ensemble is that even though each piece is strikingly distinct (say the blazer’s wispy shade of pink and the jeans’ seamlessly ripped effect), the look remains cohesive on a larger scale when styled together. This long overpiece workwear blazer by Dynamite is my new summer fav given how lightweight it is, perfectly fit for work and on the go! Easily able to create a polished, sophisticated look all while maintaining the lightness of a spring wardrobe, it’s bound to be a versatile piece layered over a button down shirt like my outfit today, or topped over a wrap maxi dress.

Oh and did you know you can flatter your figure depending on where the pulled threads are located on the jeans?
For a slimming effect opt for simple rips, to highlight your curves choose skinny ones, and to look taller and leaner chose vertical rips over horizontal rips (like how stripes convey the same illusion). Do you have a favorite way of wearing distressed denims?
