The Sheer Connection in Parker Smith

The dark wash blue skinny jean is a pretty important staple piece for any wardrobe, and has been for a long time, but with the athleisure trend popping up and competing head-on with the denim industry last year, things got interesting. A good solid skinny jean is still a must, but the huge variety of leggings that denim companies churned out to amp up the competition and prove just how comfortable a pair of jeans can be was definitely impressive! We spotted instagrammer The Sheer Connection in Parker Smith, showing us a great case in point. She is wearing the Parker Smith Julian Legging in Ink, which is made from lightweight knit indigo with a flattering, slimming midrise fit and a comfy elastic waistband. This piece could easily replace your typical skinny jean, and looks just as great under a long tunic, slouchy top or even a dress! Parker Smith also states they look super cute with sneakers which I think gives them a cute athletic appeal, as seen with The Sheer Connection. She also dresses them up a little with a white blouse and grey cardigan. This is definitely one of those pieces that will dress up or down or anywhere in between for a year-round effortless look!

I’ve been quite the denim fanatic for several years now, and am happy to apply this passion to something that I can share with others. I am also a graphic designer/web developer and have done design work for two of the biggest designer boutiques in town, which is partly to blame for the 100 plus pairs of jeans I now own in my collection! It always fascinates me how much can be done with the denim fabric alone, and the constant innovations will always keep me hooked.
