3 Ways to Wear: James Jeans Chopper Shorts in Destroyed Indigo

The Chopper has to be one of my favorite styles that James Jeans has ever released. There is a model off duty sense to them that I find so appealing and perfect for the new season. So that was the aesthetic that I went for when styling the Destroyed Indigo wash. See how I styled them below.

For this look here, I went for the model off duty era when Daria Werbowy and Gemma Ward took over the runways. The way they smartened up their destroyed denim is something that I have always been a fan of. I paired them with a Rag & Bone muscle shirt to layer under a Stella McCartney blazer to add to the tomboy feel. I then went for a pair of Toga Pulla boots to also help bring on the vibe, but also tie in the feminine touch of the Dannijo necklace. The necklace adds a nice flare, I find, without taking too much away from the vibe of the overall look.

Grunge is always a look that models go for, when they are roaming the streets for those street style photographers and Binx Walton is one that inspired this one here. There is a way to her personal style that I find cool with the way she carries herself. I paired the shorts with a t shirt from FRAME to add to the comfortable feel of the look. Then to carry that over, a cardigan by Equipment and a pair of Chucks. Then to finish it all off, a bracelet by Miansai just to add that little bit more to the look.

For this look here, I wanted to make it completely feminine. Something that you can definitely see Leandra Medine of ManRepeller wearing herself. I went for a Tibi top to pair with the shorts to contrast against the masculinity of them. To carry that mix of masculine and feminine further, a pair of 3.1 Phillip Lim mules and a set of bracelets from Spinelli Kilcollin. As I see this look as something of more of a statement, a clutch by Saint Laurent is the perfect bag to finish it all off.
