When it comes to styling, we have a few tips and tricks we’re ready to bring out of the Calexico vault to share with you.

1. To Finish Your Look, Always Add A Belt 

Belts are hands down our favourite accessory at Calexico. There is just something about adding a belt to outfits that makes it seem complete, and you can go large, small, simple or statement depending on your look.

2. ‘Mid Rise’ Jeans Are Basically Magic

It’s true, they’re our go-to for a reason. The mid-rise jean is perfect for the girl that hates a high rise but still wants all the benefits, and by that we mean the slimming kind. Let’s just say you will never worry about that dreaded post-dinner tummy ever again. These babies elongate, lengthen and keep everything smooth and in tact. Oh, and did we mention they are incredibly comfortable?!

3. When In Doubt, Add A Denim Jacket

We don’t discriminate with our love for denim. Aside from jeans, we have denim jackets in aplenty. Whenever you feel that your outfit just isn’t cutting it or is a little too simple, just add a great denim jacket. It’s always on trend, effortless and chic.

4. Need Boots For Winter? Meet The Newbury

If you’re looking for a staple pair of boots for Winter, we always tell our clients to start with the Newbury. Available in an assortment of colours, the Newbury is the best due to its stacked block heel which allows comfort as well as height. Adding to this, they are the perfect shape around the ankle, allowing them to be styled back with any pair of jeans or a skirt, and we promise you will come back to them season after season.

5. Always On Trend: Boyfriend Jeans And Pumps

A personal Calexico favourite, we love mixing androgynous and feminine, because it balances out your look and is always on trend. Whether you’re heading to dinner or lunch, a pair of denim boyfriend jeans and high pumps will always suffice.
