Things we’re still obsessed with: the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean. Since we last styled this denim fit, the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean has made its way to an even deeper place in our heart as we’re discovering new washes & ways to wear them. This month, two-tone denim is everywhere, and we’re loving it in this straight-leg, cropped look. With just enough of a 90s vibe, this jean is super versatile and can be dressed up for a night out with friends or down for weekend hangouts. Blake, the blogger behind Blake Von D, is showing you how to master the tricky two-tone look below.
Blake is a lawyer and digital influencer. It was during this time that she really began to make a name for herself in the world of blogging, all while earning a Master’s Degree from NYU. Not one to settle, in 2012, she decided to pursue her life long dream of becoming an attorney and enrolled in law school at Tulane University.
Throughout all of her academic endeavors, I have continued to use her influence as a blogger to champion the causes most near to her heart — specifically the empowering of women in all their various walks of life and the celebration of women of color across all professions, but especially in the field of fashion.”
What Inspired Blake’s Look:
“When it comes to denim, you can never have enough pairs of comfortable jeans. That said, it doesn’t mean they all have to look same. It’s okay to add a little variety and interest. Enter these two-toned vintage hi-rise jeans!
They’re a really fun pair of jeans and they add a bit of visual detail to any outfit. I also love that they’re cropped at the ankle. (That’s kind of my thing these days with denim.) The fraying is a nice detail as well.
I paired them with a simple black turtleneck, sneakers, shades and a color-blocked coat. It’s casual but still makes a statement. I wore this look shopping, and I had so many sales associates stop and compliment me. With all of the colors and lines, your eyes aren’t really sure where to go first. But you can be sure that wherever they land, you’re going to like what you see.”
