For a middle school-friendly denim outfit, look no further than the staple high-waisted skinny jean. And don’t be intimidated! Today’s denim technology features shapewear-like construction and lots of lifting and smoothing features. But for a classic, low-maintenance look for your teen, head to American Eagle, where the super hi-rise cut comes in a ton of washes with lots of great options to wear on top.
On Kaylin: Super hi-rise skinny jeggings in brilliant blue wash, chartreuse green long-sleeve waffle tee, cozy cropped cheetah print jacket and black heeled boots from Off Broadway Shoes.
For a slightly more worn-in, grown-up look – stick with the classics! Levi’s Outlet features all the original denim cuts plus fun new updates and washes that work for today’s modern aesthetic. We love pairing more relaxed cuts with fitted tees to provide a flattering look with a nod to the 90s.
On Sydney: Levi’s 501 mid-rise light-wash denim with a straight leg, a fitted black and white stripe tee, and a pair of white grunge boots from Off Broadway Shoes.
For day-to-night style, go for some of the latest colored denims or super dark washes. We’re loving the rock ‘n’ roll appeal of faded black denim mixed with animal print. You can never go wrong with a dark wash that is easy to dress up for day or night. Express has a great variety of flattering fits and trendy washes to choose from.
On Deijah: Faded black high-waisted stretch denim with a raw hem, an ultra soft cheetah print sweater and chunky black ankle boots from Off Broadway Shoes.
For grown-up style that’s ahead of the curve, go for the denim-on-denim trend and do it now! We loved the look of dark jeans and a well-worn chambray top this spring and summer, but for fall, take the all-denim look a step further and match your blues! Everyone’s favorite denim creator, Baldwin, has an outlet store now and there’s never been a better time to invest in locally designed, totally designer denim.
On Olivia: Therese high-rise classic straight leg denim with a cropped hem, matching medium-wash denim jacket, fitted white ribbed tee, and a pair of trendy white Fila sneakers from Off Broadway Shoes.
