Fifty Shades of Denim: The UO Challenge, Day 2

The @urbanoutfitters denim challenge day two photographed to the tune of Telephone by Lady Gaga featuring Beyoncé

And if day one was about appeasing the hidden creative sub-conscience of the man who put the orange cone there, day two is about Lady Gaga and Beyonce, but only in the same way their song, “Telephone” is. It makes a good necklace, me thinks. The motivation behind this one fall under the extensive loot of prints umbrella. Are they animal? Are they tribal? Are they mundane? Why not all? The jacket actually reads a bit more subtle than I thought it would and more or less grown to match well with everything. Such is the life of a print that is neutral, I guess. The jeans are skinny ankle and not stretch at all–a difficult combo to come by in this day and age probably because it requires we go up two sizes. When all is said and big though, it’s worth it. Black and white jeans are likely the easiest “update,” for the first inklings toward a fall wardrobe. And in the summer, they compliment a counter-printed mule pretty well. It’s a win-win, I say.

How would you wear ikat denim?

Thoughts?

    Such an awesome photo!! Love the outfit too :) I would most possibly go for some silk blouse in burgundy on these ikat jeans, biker boots and denim jacket :)

    So not sure, I am a plus size so I don’t own anything skinny, but the look is awesome on you!

  • Misses Robinson

    any recommendations on sizing?  these jeans are so inexpensive it’s mind boggling, but they’re meant for young ladies.  which I’m not.

    • Leandra

      Size up x 2!

    These are the ones I wanted from the new UO denim collection!  I want to wear them with a sleeveless funnel neck pullover I finished knitting a few weeks ago.  It’s mustard yellow with black flecks and I think would look so fun with these jeans.  I will be near a UO tomorrow.  Ah, the planning!

    Oh man. I know everyone is going to say this – but KILLER post. 

    True, Fendi isn’t exactly entry-level fashion, but the fact that your’e doing an UO challenge helps appeal to us empty-pocket plebeians.

    Cheers.

    Size up 2x for looser fit or just because? Also, how tall are you? those look like capris.

    • Leandra

      For more comfortable fit…they aren’t stretch jeans and the ankles are *really* skiinny. I am 5’7 but am wearing them double folded to make them look more capri…figured would work better with the mules.

  • Lilli Dee

    what size jacket are you wearing? i want to buy that jacket but am unsure on sizing??
