Charleston, SC

Pulled Together Casual

For the longest time, I’ve been super loyal to dark wash jeans — almost religiously, even. Sure, I could play around with different washes a little more often, but who can blame me for loving dark wash?! Flattering: check. Polished: check. Versatile: check. But now I’m focusing more on my health and fitness (currently in Week 3 — aka Week 7 of BBG. Don’t worry, I will do a whole post on this soon!), and approximately 10,000 squats later, I’m finally in a place where I’ve put in the work and feel comfortable rocking a pair of light wash jeans.

I’ve had this particular pair for the longest time and always love the way they look styled — high-waisted, slightly distressed and a frayed hem give them some subtle edge while still fitting right in with a polished ensemble. If ever in doubt when putting a look together, just remember that light wash jeans always look fab with black (and vice versa, white always looks great with dark wash) — it’s all about the contrast.
