Real Women, Real Style: How 3 LT Staffers Do Denim

We turn the spotlight on three Le Tote staffers from the Marketing squad who do denim. Every. Single. Day.

Alyssa pairs her favorite high-waisted denim with a scoop tee from Le Tote to create a balanced silhouette. She styled it with pointed booties and a fun, trendy belt. “It’s my go-to look and I feel great in it because I’m most comfortable.”

How do you do denim?
I love high waisted pants that are loose on the thighs to create a casual but trendy western look.

How many pairs of jeans in your closet?
I believe I have 7 pairs, but two of them are on most-frequent rotation. I have a classic skinny jean that can do the weekend, running-errands look just as easily as a date night look. The second is a trendy high-waisted pair that I got altered to be slightly snug, and also cropped to show off my ankles.

What is the most out of the box look you’ve attempted with denim?
I found these Wrangler men’s denim at a thrift store and they fit perfectly. My other denim experiment was overalls. Both the looks are out of the box for me and finding the right top can be challenging but when it works, oh boy it works!

Shradha dresses up her denim with an embroidered bomber from Le Tote, high heels and statement bag. “A messy tuck and the casual drape of the jacket make it a perfect Casual Friday look — great for the desk; even better for dinner!”

How do you do denim?
I do denim, day in and night out. My go-to style is a classic, mid-rise skinny no matter what is ‘trending’. Let’s just say I am not a risk-taker when it comes my denim choices so cropped, frayed and patchwork jeans never make their way into my closet!  

How do you dress denim for after-hours?
It really depends on the after-hours in question. Dressed up denim often involves a dramatic third piece like a flowy chiffon layer (preferably made in India, featuring a gorgeous hand blocked print), high-ish heels, a classic handbag or statement jewelry — sometimes it’s just one element; sometimes I need it all. And then there are times when a bold red lip gets the job done.

What’s the fanciest occasion you’ve dared to wear denim?
I wore denim to the War Memorial Opera House once!

Emily wears her fave black denim that she recently scored from  Le Tote. “I wore it with a neutral blazer but incorporated a pop of color via the top.” Comfy wedges and a statement necklace seal the deal.

How do you do denim?
Denim is my everyday staple. Every morning, outfit planning begins with denim and the rest of the pieces follow suit. I think I own more pairs of jeans than I own anything else in my closet!

What is the secret to nailing the perfect jeans from Le Tote?
It’s simple — if there’s a style of denim available on the site that I am interested in, I try it. I’ve purchased a few different pairs and the system has figured out what works for me and tends to give me good recommendations. It’s not perfect every time but I am always willing to try because, to me, finding jeans that fit is a real success. So there’s no real secret — just rate your totes and be open to some trial and error.

Your top styling tricks to make denim work for work?
Fun shoes, polished layers and lots of diversity in terms of tops, blazers, jackets, scarves to mix and match, and help dress up or down your denim.
