Denim transcends fashion in that everyone wears it. Whether it’s a pair of faded Levi’s or J Brand skinnies, there is a fit and wash to suit virtually everybody. Enter Beyoncé, who posted a snap on her website earlier this week wearing a tried-and-true jean jacket and FRAME distressed skirt. But the real game-changers here were the Chanel brooches clustered on her breast pocket and sleeve. If Queen Bey’s look is too high on glamour for your taste, look no further than her contemporary, Rihanna, who sported a similar style last spring—right down to the logoed accessories—with a streamlined chambray shirt. Both women were wise to ground their denim-on-denim looks with neutral stilettos.
Props to Beyoncé for kicking off the twin moment when she posted a photo on Instagram of herself in the skirt a month ago. Kim stepped out just last week in the versatile style, which features a high waist and plenty of stretch for a flattering fit. One thing’s for sure, we now need to add a denim pencil skirt to our own closet—immediately! Pick up their exact Frame Denim Le High Pencil Skirt in Carlyle ($235) now at net-a-porter.com.
Go ahead and lust after her trio of Chanel pins, but if you’re in the mood for a less splurge-y purchase, check out Bey’s Frame denim pencil skirt, which she pairs with a denim jacket and metallic pumps.
