Style at a Certain Age is a lifestyle blog by Beth Djalali dedicated to aging with grace, strength, and beauty.
it’s january, ladies, out with the old and with the new. at least a new pair of denim or two. new denim for the new year as it were. today, i’m partnering with JCPenney on YouTube and Instagram, but i didn’t want my blog readers to miss out on three snazzy outfits i put together that feature white and black denim.
from time-to-time several of you ask for affordable outfits. well, i can’t think of a brand that helps stretch our budget better than JCPenney. and every item that i’m wearing today is from JCP. it all starts with two pair of Levi Strauss jeans.
black jeans have that slimming effect we all love. which is why i always have one pair of black denim in my closet. pair the black jeans with a black turtleneck for a monochromatic look. add a brown faux suede blazer into the mix for a polished and sophisticated outfit that will keep your winter style game strong all season long. but wait. a pair of snake print pumps are on trend and add a little edge, which keeps us looking fresh and modern.
the black turtleneck has a puff sleeve for a thoroughly modern look. sleeves are having a moment in 2020.
love the topstitching on this faux suede blazer.
snake print pumps add texture and pack a punch.
swap the black turtleneck for brown. voila! instant outfit.
i know, i know when i was growing up white was reserved for spring and summer. but these days, the modern woman wears white denim 365 days a year. it can be challenging to find the right pair of white denim. sometimes, they reveal a little too much information. but here’s a style tip: size up one size. that should do the trick.
winter neutrals are a classic and elegant look that’s also fresh and modern.
it’s wednesday, ladies, time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
