Fall into Jeans - Denim Coupon

Welcome back  fall (almost), I've missed you. Time for a coupon, for return to school, end of vacations and time to put your clothes back on. I meant jackets, boots and pants! It's been an exceptional summer, with lovely sundresses, sandals, short shorts and the occasional ALS challenge...burr!!!
 
So, the season I love the most...autumn has arrived!! Love the jackets, boots and the urge to wear jeans again is emerging!  And long gone are the days when I was a girl where there were only 2 fits, the guys fit, and skinny girl fit....(which I was not).  And Levi's dominated the scene. Now there are more brands than twitter accounts. Plum has some of the best fitting, best looks in denim. This from a certified denim hoarder.

Mavi makes some wonderfully fitting jeans. With some very innovative denim processes and finishes. Love the Alexa skinny jeans (above).  (nope, I'm still not skinny) but I love that I can wear something that says 'skinny' on the tag. Mid rise typically means that you need not feel like you're wearing your 'mom's' jeans, however, comfortable enough so that you're not spending the day pulling up your kids AND your pants. 
 
Image
The Mavi Molly (above)  have a ubiqitous leg cut. Sophisticated looking,  ideal for pairing with stillettos, and great with boots as they fall just nicely over the width of the boot. The dark finish is a great alternative in many social occasions to black pants. Acceptable in many work environments and worn with a blazer to bring balance to the casual nature of denim.

And of course these super sexy dark skinny (Yoga jeans). I love the rock star influence with the super edgy heel, works well with the zippers.
 
FEATURED ON OUR EMAIL, the Mavi Jogger are the most amazing jeans I've ever owned. And trust me, I could open my own denim store (ok maybe more of a closet). Made of cotton, eme and elastane, they're like jogging pants in disguise. As they have the perfect denim finish. Don't let the drawstring and elastic waist fool you. While they can endure any and all activities you throw at them, such as you accidentally fall asleep in them, you won't awake feeling like you've been wearing a torture devise. These are very fashionable jeans (comes also in a darker shade). Roll them up for a casual look or down with slingbacks. I purchased several pairs, some to fit snugly with tunics, and some loose, more boyfriend style. You have to have these! Go get a pair now! I'll wait here.
 
This great coupon features some of the best denim around, Mavi jeans made in Turkey, Yoga jeans, made in Canada, and new  Dish jeans. This coupon is for a limited time, so waste no time pondering. Go and prepare yourself for the season of scarves, hats, apple cider, romantic walks  through the colorful leaves (and then raking them up)!
 
Kickstart fall with this great coupon. Limited time. Fall will last longer than this coupon.

  • $ 20 off Mavi, Yoga, Dish regular and black denim
  • August 29 to September 14
  • Dish exclusive to Calgary location

cowboy checklist

How to tell if you're a cowboy (or girl)?

  • Do you drive a truck?
  • Do you own a horse
  • Do you like country music?

 If you answered no to any or all of those questions, take heart, you can still be a cowboy (or girl). Because who doesn't love denim? It's not just for the Stampede. Although, right now would be a good time to get prepared. Plum has a not-to-be-missed denim sale right now in 2 locations only. Plum in Kelowna and Plum in Calgary. All denim no less than 20% off. (so, get in your truck and drive there)!

 

Image

I love this kimono look. So fresh and light. (no horse required). These jeans have so much stretch in them, you'll forget you're wearing them.

 

 

 

Image

Yoga jeans are my ultimate favorite. (how can you tell I love denim, if I could have denim children I would). Speaking of children, there's been a shift in recent years to 'yoga' wear. Young girls used to want jeans only, now it's yoga wear. The marriage of the 2, the incredible stretch all in the form of a great denim fabric, and multiple style options, what else could you want? Love the cut of the leg on these; just enough leg width to fit over your boots.

 

 

Image

And lets not forget white (oooh, watch where you sit!)? A blank slate for all co-ordinates. However, my children would see it as a lovely fresh place to draw. (keep writing untensils out of reach).

I think I'm more of a city cowgirl. I love my denim, but I ride a bike, does that count?

Don't miss this sale. Promotion (in 2 stores only) ends June 15th. Don't miss out.

Yours in Fashion Obsession..

The Boyfriend Jean

 

Well, it is officially September and officially too late to keep pretending that fall isn't happening. The air has definitely started to have a bit of a nip to it, especially in the evenings. So chances are, you're probably grudgingly looking into revamping your denim wardrobe. It's getting just a liiittle bit chilly for bare legs.

Luckily, your denim options have never been greater (great as in many and great as in awesome). We've already talked about wide leg jeans and skinny jeans, today it's time to put the spotlight on the boyfriend jean.

 Image

 

People can make the mistake of thinking that the relaxed fit of the boyfriend jean isn't sexy. Wrong-o. You just have to keep the overall tone of your outfit sophisticated, and the look comes together beautifully. For example (since we're borrowing from the boys anyway), try topping off your boyfriend jeans with a tailored jacket.

Image Image

Tailored blazer, $195 and Mavi Boyfriend Jeans, $98.

This is one of my favourite looks for fall, and one of the easiest to wear! You can pair almost any kind of top with the boyfriend jeans (t-shirts and button downs are my favourites) and add a structured jacket for a wearable, fashion-forward look. 

I recommend finishing this look off with a fetching pair of pumps or wedges. We like borrowing from the boys, but I say let 'em keep their shoes. Some heels, or even a cute set of ballet flats, will keep your outfit appropriately chic.

And now for something a little bit special! Starting this Friday, September 7th, we're helping you build your fall wardrobe with a promotion. We're offering a lace trimmed cami, pictured above in one of eight delicious fall colours, for just $2.00 with any purchase of $75.00 or over.* This offer is only good while quantities last, so get 'em while you can!

*Not applicable to previous purchase, limit one per customer.

Tips on Wide Leg Jeans

Category:

 

Fashion is fun partly because there is a huge wealth of dressing options on the market. Quite literally, there is something for everyone, every taste, and every style. But the number of choices we have to make when we're shopping (or even just getting dressed in the mornings) can feel a bit daunting at times. So it never hurts to have a few tips at your disposal, amiright? 

With that in mind, today on the blog we're going to be talking about how to wear wide leg jeans, a stylish and oh-so-comfy alternative to the skinny jeans that have been dominating the jean scene. I'll walk you through the pictures below and show you just how easy it is to seriously rock this trend.

A huge thank you to the fabulous Plum staffers who styled and modeled in these pictures!

Image

Lydia Rose paired her wide leg Mavi's (now only $49) with a cozy sweater and fringed bag, channeling the effortless esthetic of the 70's. The pendant necklace and bold print of the sweater keep the look pulled together and stylish. 

 

Image

Think wide leg jeans are not figure flattering? Think again. If you want to show off your shape, follow Amelia's lead. She tucked in her collared shirt and finished the look off with a wide leather belt. The long line created by her pendant necklace keeps the outfit from looking broken up.

 

Image

If you want to dress your jeans up a notch, swap out a more casual top for a sheer blouse and blazer, like Lydia Rose did. Add some chunky jewellery and a textured bag and you're polished (but with a cool edge) for your evening out.

Heels or wedges look fabulous with wide leg jeans, particularly if you're petite, but I know not every woman is a fan of them. If you're apprehensive, look for a low wedge with a slight platform at the toe. This keeps the angle of your foot from feeling too extreme while still giving you a little bit of extra height.

And remember, there are no hard and fast rules in fashion. If you're unsure of how to style a particular item, just experiment with it. And don't forget to have fun!

Plum carries Mavi Jeans and Yoga Jeans, two of the best names in the business. Mavi's have a fantastic fit and they're available in just about every cut and colour under the sun. And Yogas, they are the comfiest pair of jeans you will ever own because of their unique, 5-way diagonal stretch.

The right pair of jeans is one of your most valuable wardrobe staples. You know the pair I mean. They are your go-to's, the kind you just have to slip on to feel good. You wear them with a plain white tee on Monday and look great. Wear them again on Friday night with your favourite heels and look even better.
