Striped Denim + Retro Accessories

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Madewell / Jeans: ReformationHeels: Public Desire (Similar here) / Scarf: HermèsBag: Express (Similar here) / Sunglasses: Asos 

The Look

It has been a minute! I've been so wrapped up in getting my travel posts up that I put a lot of the lookbook posts on the back burner this summer. While I included my looks and links to them in those travel posts, it's still nice to get back to my roots of style posts and how/why I put them together. Marijn and I tested out a new camera for these shots and couldn't be more pleased! September will be a whole new animal for us.

Now, back to the look. I've been experimenting a lot with different denim style, so these striped and structured reformation spoke to me. I love the cut and almost boxiness of them. Not to mention, they suck you is in all the right places. Seriously, you can actually feel the material tightening up around the upper thigh area and waist. I find this too be super flattering, but at ties a tad uncomfortable. Nothing I can't deal with for how great your legs look when wearing them! The vertical stripes give your legs that elongated look, especially when worn with heels!

With the jeans as the focus of the look, I went very comfortable and easy breezy for the rest of the look. A simple white t-shirt should always be on hand for moments like these. As you can, it complements the heels nicely, but this look is just as easily worn with sneakers. My sheer orange sunnies (found on Asos) and hairstyle give the entire look a very retro vibe. I love how th eorange tint of the lenses works so well with the warm tones of the Hermès scarf. Speaking of which, wrapping scarves around handbag handles has to be one of my new favorite thing to do with accessories!

Babes Against Bullsh*t Jacket + Wrap Skirt

Claudia Di Capua

T-Shirt: J. CrewJacket: Understated Leather via RevolveSkirt: Topshop (very similar here) / Boots: Public DesireSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

It’s the start of a new week, so I thought a slightly motivational post would be fitting. With all of the recent women’s initiatives that have taken the world, but especially the U.S. by storm, it only seemed appropriate to show my support using my mode of creativity —clothing. I wanted this ‘Babes Against Bullshit’ Understated Leather denim jacket last summer, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I found it on sale! I was so happy to have snagged it. QUICK TIP: if you love something, but aren’t ready to pay the price, remove it from your cart and add it to your (what is this called). This has worked well for me on sites like Revolve because this section lives right below your cart, so you can always see when they have adjusted an item to a lower price!

I’m obsessed with cool patchwork and love how the ‘Babes Against Bullshit’ has a slightly western feel to it. The light wash and cropped, raw edge denim makes this jacket a perfect piece for summer! I linked this jacket along with another similar version above!

This asymmetric wrap skirt has been so useful in the almost two years that I’ve had it. It transitions so well from day to night and has a super cool balanced, but off-balanced look. The check print is super on trend and the belt adds some visual depth and interest. For a warm spring day, a simple t-shirt is all you need. It’s fits so comfortably underneath a denim jacket! 

I paired this look with my white stiletto Public Desire boots (which are weirdly hard to come by in this style anymore), rounding off the subtle space cowgirl look I had going. While I could have gone with jeans, it was too perfect of an opportunity to wear this skirt. Always test out all of your theories! I’ll save the denim on denim for another day!

Summer Weekend in Anthro & Current/Elliott

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Anthropologie (Similar here & below) / Jeans: Current/Elliott via HautelookJacket: BagatelleEarrings: & Other Stories Sneakers: Steve Madden (Similar here) / Bag: Diane von Furstenberg Sunglasses: Ray Ban

The Look

This warm weather has been the sole inspiration for looks on the perfect weekends we have been having here in NY! Flowy ruffles are the best in light, breezy weather and add a romantic and delicate feel to things like a rugged boyfriend jean. I found this Anthropologie top last spring, but luckily they have come out with a few new versions along with a few other vendors (shop them above)! Ruffles are one of those styles that did not die last summer and will for sure be around this season. 

I paired this easy going top with a new pair of Current/Elliot jeans that I found on Hautelook. If you don't already shop on Hautelook, you NEED to! Originally priced at around $275, I snagged these babies for about $80 on sale, and now they've gone down even more to just over $50! Get your hands on them while you can, people! They are made of such high quality denim and I love this style of boyfriend jeans. The top is a bit more fitted from the waist to just above the knee where it falls into a structured, yet looser fit. The tears are just enough for my liking and the overall fit is super comfortable! I can't say enough good things about Current/Elliott denim and Hautelook. They will both have my business for a long time!

This shoot was a bit impromptu as Marijn & I were just walking around the city with Milo (my dog), but those are the best and easiest kind, right!? I accessorized with a cute DVF mini crossbody bag that doubles as a clutch and added my favorite silver hoops from & Other Stories and sunnies from Ray-Ban.
