New York Closets: Aziza Azim

You’ve experienced Claire pair a Christian Dior jumpsuit with white tennis sneakers and last week, you may or may not have doubted the self-inflicted no crop top policy you bequeathed yourself after September 1st in part due to Shiona Turini but today, Aziza Azim, a creative consultant (Sandy Liang, MarloLaz and Hanut Singh) and brand advisor who lives between New York, Moscow and London has a different bone to pick with, or share with (depending on where you stand) you: how much denim is too much denim?

Of course, she provides an answer, too.

And though her solution isn’t particularly surprising (a skinny black pair, another boot-cut, boyfriend style blue pair and one set of frayed wide legs suggest that there is no such thing as too much denim), it is still fairly satisfying. Why? Because your jeans are toast and you can dress them up or down however you want. Observe as the champion of young, international designers brings this point home with five days of looks.

Monday: Good weather Mondays are also good vibe days. Because it was so nice out and the sky was practically pink, I decided to match my skirt to it.

Tuesday: I like to think that this jacket does all the talking, so I paired it with a plaid shirt and black jeans. It has light embellishments on it, which soften it a little bit. The white sneakers are the most comfortable that I have — they get a bonus point for the hidden, magical wedge.

Wednesday: When you wake up and you’re listening to The Strokes, this is invariably how you end up leaving your house. It’s as simple as that.

Thursday: Sexy boyfriend jeans these are not. I like to say that these are a woman’s best friend (least sexy but obviously coolest cut and fit) but maybe a guy’s worst enemy. The coat I’m wearing over the jeans is a piece of art. And, the shoes are an accessory that I borrowed from my really good friend from Kansas. Her name is Dorothy and her dog is so annoying.

Friday: The only redeeming quality to this cold day is the fact that it is Friday. That and this coat — which is kind of a blanket but also not at all.
