Sunday’s are big brunch days in DC and while I love a great tailored look sometimes it’s okay to be just be casual. January has been unseasonably warm and I needed something great to wear for a brunch with friends. I decided to bring out the denim and corduroy.
I know I’ve been touting the #nojeansjanuary and in my last couple of post (A day for black and white and You should buy a chunky sweater), I have been sporting casual looks with no jeans in sight. However the good folks at Noble denim had sent me this jacket and with the warmer weather, I had to break it out. To be honest, I haven’t owned a jean jacket in a number of years but this jacket is pretty sweet.
Noble Denim is known for their small batch denim offerings and this jacket is collaboration with Bulleit Frontier Whiskey. It’s a classic 70’s inspired jacket with a corduroy collar that’s been aged in Bulleit barrels. Since the collar was corduroy I decided to pair it with corduroy pants. I figured denim and corduroy would make a great combo. After all we know how denim on denim can turn out horrible wrong (Google Justin and Britney in denim!)
For my look, I went with berry colored cords with a matching striped mohair sweater. It has been warm but it is still winter so I wanted to be prepared in cased it did get cooler. Different textures can make a look really stand out. I threw on a hat and was ready for Sunday Funday. Hope your brunches turn out just as fun and fashionable!
