My Summer-to-Fall Denim Look with NYDJ Smart Embrace Jeans

There’s no question that I love living in Southern California. The weather and the scenery really can’t be beat. But for half the year in LA, there’s one thing I don‘t get to enjoy very often: wearing jeans! The temps from May through October climb pretty high around here, making long denim but a wistful memory of the cooler months. It’s a shame, because there’s no quicker route to comfortable, confident style than throwing on a great pair of jeans with a chic top and standout accessories. But sweating in my skinnies when its 100 degrees out definitely isn’t conducive to comfort or confidence!

But now, thanks to NYDJ, every day of the year can be a perfect denim day! The brand, which is loved by women of all shapes and sizes for its ability to flatter and move with the body, women of has just released its Smart Embrace™ collection. Designed to breathe in the summer and insulate when the mercury drops, NYDJ’s Smart Embrace jeans use high-performance, moisture-wicking COOLMAX® All Season technology for the ultimate in year-round style. Available in all your favorite silhouettes and washes—from straight and streamlined to the casual, dark wash girlfriend jean I’m wearing here—these jeans are destined to become your go-to for work, play, travel, and everything in between. (Seriously, I think I found the only plane pants I’ll ever need!)

Once your go-to denim is on lockdown, you’re then freed up to explore a little with the rest of your outfit! I’m usually a black, grey, or navy kinda gal, but I’ve been drawn this season to warmer hued knits like this chunky ochre sweater. Not quite yellow and not quite brown, it feels just right for the coming autumn—especially when teamed up with boldly shaped gold jewelry and block-heeled metallic boots! A vintage monogram clutch completes a look that’s laid-back but considered, on-trend but timeless, and so comfy it’s bound to leave you jumping for joy! Stay tuned later this fall as I take these jeans for a test drive on Instagram. Our fave fashion season is just getting started!
