Believe it or not, when Fashion Director Marina Larroudé told her team she was going to wear denim for seven days in a row, they doubted she could do it. “They know I pretty much only wear dresses and skirts year-round, so I was eager to prove them wrong,” she says. Luckily, this season’s offering has plenty for her to work with. “There are so many colorful, fashion-forward, and feminine pieces — it wasn’t like I only had classic jeans to work with. I ended up loving so many looks that it was hard to narrow down to seven!” Below she shares her look from each day of the week.

MONDAY: White Jeans + Blazer

BLAZÉ MILANO Everyday Denim-Effect Linen-Cotton Double-Breasted Blazer / BARNEYS NEW YORK Crewneck T-Shirt / FRAME Le Capri Wide-Leg Jeans / KHOKHO Jabu Mini Straw & Leather Basket Bag

“I like to start the week feeling polished and put together, and what better way to do that than with a pair of tailored pants and a blazer? In white, jeans feel elevated enough to pass as business casual, and you definitely don’t have to wait until Memorial Day to rock them. I also love how these long flares allow room for a pair of towering platforms.”

 

TUESDAY: Denim Jacket

RE/DONE Corset Levi’s® Denim Jacket / BURBERRY Checked Chiffon Skirt / PROENZA SCHOULER Leather Ankle-Tie Mules / PRADA Small Leather Bucket Bag

“Denim jackets are a go-to for me to dress down super-feminine pieces in my wardrobe. They’re a great neutral layering piece, and I always make sure I pack one when I travel. Here the relaxed silhouette is a bit out of my comfort zone, but rolling up the sleeves freshens up a pleated skirt. This is an easy, smart look for tackling my Tuesday.”

 

WEDNESDAY: Denim Skirt Meets Bold Accessories

AREA Floating Crystal Hoop Earrings / DRIES VAN NOTEN Padded-Shoulder Cotton Shirt / 3X1 Elizabella Denim Long Skirt / MANOLO BLAHNIK Agavria Suede Mules / PROENZA SCHOULER PS1+ Mini Leather Crossbody Bag

“For a day of market appointments at designer showrooms, I like to dress up a little. The midi length on this 3×1 skirt is perfect; plus, the front slit and raw hem give the pencil silhouette a bit of edge. I chose to pair it with a fashion-forward top (I’ll be wearing this Dries blouse all spring!) and bold accessories that are sure to be a conversation starter throughout the busy day.”

 

THURSDAY: Logo-Mania Day-to-Night

AREA Floating Crystal Hoop Earrings  / ALEX MILL Slub-Weave Cotton Shirt / JORDACHE Logo Slim Straight Jeans / BARNEYS NEW YORK Leather Slingback Sandals / PACO RABANNE Iconic Blossom Shoulder Bag / BARNEYS NEW YORK Polka Dot Suede Mules

“For me to pull off logo-mania, it’s all about a sophisticated spin. I paired these trendy Jordache jeans with an effortless Alex Mills cotton button-down. On days where I have a dinner, I like to come home, even if just for an hour, to spend some time with my kids. With a quick swap to metallic accessories, I can head back out for evening plans without changing the whole look.”

 

FRIDAY: Shirtdress

PROENZA SCHOULER Bleached Denim Shirtdress / BURBERRY Margate Stamped Leather Platform-Wedge Sandals / FIVESEVENTYFIVE Framed Wicker Bag

“Fridays are usually a pretty quiet day at the office, so I often book my business lunches at Freds. This Proenza Schouler dress feels really special while still being totally comfortable and easy to wear. I love the denim spin on the tie-dye trend — this version is actually hand dyed using a special bleaching technique. Since I am petite, this silhouette can sometimes overpower me, so I chose to wear it with a substantial platform from Burberry.”

 

SATURDAY: Dressed-Up Denim

AREA Blooming Flower Drop Earrings / ISABEL MARANT Esmee Plaid Cotton-Blend Twisted Top / CQY Palme High-Rise Skinny Jeans / ALEVÌ MILANO Stella Patent Leather T-Strap Sandals

“I absolutely love to entertain, and I try to do so on the weekends whenever possible. Here I’m dressed for hosting visiting Brazilian friends for cocktails before we head to a Greek spot around the corner. Wearing jeans means that I’m not overdressed for entertaining at home. This clean, skinny silhouette is begging to be styled with great heels, a fun blouse, and crystal earrings from Area for a touch of shine.”

 

SUNDAY: Vintage-Inspired

THE ELDER STATESMAN Striped Cashmere Sweater / LISA PERRY Fleurty Embroidered Jeans / GOLDEN GOOSE Women’s Superstar Leather Sneakers / PROENZA SCHOULER PS1+ Mini Leather Crossbody Bag

“This is the perfect outfit for running around with my kids and husband on a Sunday. I love that the relaxed silhouette of the jeans still feels fashion-forward thanks to the adorable flower embroidery — leave it to Lisa Perry to make a pair of vintage Levi’s so special!”
