The inspiration: Emmanuelle Alt

I’ve been pinning images of Emmanuelle Alt for her impeccable Fashion Week looks, no one wears jeans and a blazer/jacket better than her. Her look is effortless, chic and timeless. One of my favorite blogs, Girls of a Certain Age (see blog link in “Blogs I Follow”), recently inspired me to break out the white jeans and style them à la Alt.

I pretty much already own most of the elements, but never put this outfit together before. I really love the result. I think I may need skinny white jeans for a longer and cleaner line, instead of the straight leg pair I’m wearing (my jeans would not tuck nicely into booties, which is why I decided to cuff them). I substituted my peep toe booties for boots, as I am over winter and boots for awhile. No one does a blazer better than Rag & Bone and this leather lapel blazer I scored from Nordstrom a couple of years ago is no exception. I discovered this slouchy studded tee in the back of my closet, I love when that happens. And you may know my love for the Lululemon Vinyasa scarf, which I just wrapped once around my neck. I love the blazer and scarf together, I’ll have to do this more often while the weather is perfect for this combo.

How do you style your white jeans?

    You’ve channeled E.A. beautifully. I don’t wear white jeans, so I’m more of a white skirt kind of gal. But I love them on women and wish it was my look too.
