Outfit Of The Day: #CoatedDenim & Over The Knee Boots

otk boots & coated denim 3Don’t let this nice weather fool you, shortly after I took these pictures it snowed 🙈 Sigh, it was bound to happen. Anyhow, moving to more fun things! Can we talk about coated denim (also know as “waxed denim”)? In my eyes, they are the next best thing to leather pants. Why? They look like leather but fit like a pair of comfy denim. And they don’t come with the hefty price tag 😉otk boots & coated denim 2otk boots & coated denim 9

Some of my favourite things about coated denim are that they can be easily dressed up or down. The subtle sheen not only highlights your curves but also adds that little something special to elevate your jeans. And not too mention that they’re versatile and edgy. Now in terms of fit, the wax coating makes these jeans not as stretchy as most denim but they keep their shape well. So buy a pair that fit you well and don’t size up or down.otk boots & coated denim 10otk boots & coated denim 13otk boots & coated denim 11

Some tips for cleaning:

Dry Cleaning: If the tag states ‘Dry Clean Only,’ proceed with caution as heat is the enemy when it comes to coated denim. Ask for environmentally friendly dry cleaning because this process does not use high heat. I would ask the cleaner if they have experience with items like this…nothing worse than paying $$$ only to have them ruined 😣

Hand Washing: wash them inside out to protect the coating. But just like any other denim, you may still get some breakdown and aging…I like to use a mild natural soap, as it tends to be more gentle on all fabrics.

Freezer Trick: I know a lot of people that swear by this method, especially when it comes to raw denim lovers. Anyhow, freezing your denim keeps bacteria (odour) at bay without any shrinkage or fading. I don’t have enough room in my freezer but since I live in a cold weather city, I simply put them in a plastic bag and stick them outside in the backyard…24 hours later, they’re ready! Simple & easy.

In this new series, we demonstrate how our most avid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What’s Right Now every weekend, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. This week, we’re featuring Jackie Silla of Style My Dreams. 

If there’s one trend I’ve been hesitant in trying out it’s the sporty pants style. This new must-have seemed too casual for daytime wear, but after coming across “Clothes We Love: Sporty Pants” in the September issue, I was inspired to pick up a pair. I chose a rayon fabric to give the pants a dressier feel, and added a blazer for structure. And guess what? It turns out I love these pants because not only are they super comfy but are also completely versatile: this…

Outfit Of The Day: Leather Leggings

So, I don’t want to jinx myself here but lately the weather has been rather nice. And by nice, I mean no jacket required nice! Which isn’t the norm for us but hey I won’t complain because I know whats coming around the corner :PGreen top & leather ootd 3

Are you guys still loving the leather leggings trend? I know I am! In fact I’m on the hunt for a new pair. Initially when I bought these I wasn’t sure if I was really going to like them or get much use out of them. So Naturally, I opted for cheap pair…no buyers remorse here! Turns out, I love them! I find leather leggings ( faux or real ) are very versatile and surprisingly comfortable. You can pretty much wear them with anything and look great. Pair them with a chunky knit, sheer blouse, tank top, t-shirt & blazer or even under a dress. The possibilities are endless!
