The trend everyone is wearing … it makes any outfit look cool!

Right now, coated denim is everywhere, and it’s the perfect starting point for your outfits as we head into the holidays. When someone asks me how to style it, here’s my answer: style it with everything! For a photo shoot the other day, I paired coated denim with this blazer, this sweater, this party top and this pretty blouse. It’s the trend everyone is wearing … it makes every outfit look cool! I’m excited to partner with Neiman Marcus for this post because they have an amazing selection of the items you need to pull these outfits together. And, I just love their story (read it here).

Today’s post is about which coated denim to buy and how to wear it. The options are endless, and you’ll have a cool, sophisticated outfit for every holiday event. Pro tip: coated denim works easily into early spring, so it’s a great investment. Keep reading for a little style inspo and outfit ideas I hope you’ll love!

Coated denim favorites

Find a pair you love – you’ll wear them all the time

If you’re daring and would try red, this pair recently caught my eye

How cool is this neutral pair by Frame? You can wear it in the spring with a white tee and sneakers

For black, this kick flare is a personal favorite, and I love the button detail on this one



#1 Sweaters

Finding a sweater that’s a little sexy and is also comfortable can be challenging. This new one by L’Agence is such a great style, I’d recommend it in any color! It works with jeans or coated denim and is the perfect top to wear to a casual holiday gathering. This one by Paige is also really good and the colors are really pretty.

#2 Stylish puffer

Stylish puffers are still trending, and I like to find ones that don’t add too much bulk. This style by Herno is SO good, and so is this lightweight Moncler style that I’ve been wearing on repeat. For an affordable option, look at this North Face style and this one by Blanc Noir. Practical and stylish too!

#3 Blazer

Any style of blazer works with coated denim, whether it’s Veronica Beard with a dickey (like this), or a dressier blazer like this favorite from Cinq a Sept. For a night out, layer a cami like this one under your blazer and you’ll feel comfortable and look polished and elegant. I feel my best when I’m wearing a blazer!

#4 Pretty blouse

It’s exciting to bring out your pretty tops season after season, and who doesn’t love a little sparkle? Pair them with fun party shoes and you’ll feel extra beautiful at all your holiday events. I love this one by Alice & Olivia, and it works just as well with regular denim as with nicer black pants. See below for outfit inspo and a few other favorites.

#5 Cozy hoodie

Think of a hoodie as the perfect layering piece. It works under puffer jackets, vests, blazers, and all your favorite coats. Since coated denim gives the illusion of luxe leather without the price tag, try a hoodie/coated denim combo — it always works. Consider a Vince zip-front cardigan — this one comes with a matching jogger — so cute. Then, add coated denim (or regular denim) and you’ll be ready to go!
