1. PATCHWORK + COLLEGIATE:  Keep a sporty varsity sweater from looking to young, or patchwork jeans from looking to home-spun, by mixing the trends together.  The look stays street style polished with a structured handbag and heels in a neutral color. (See my easy and chic patchwork DIY here)

2. DOUBLE COATED:  A denim jacket looks like a top buttoned up as a first layer under a wool overcoat (shop my denim edit under $150 here)

3. SHINE ALL THE TIME: Another spin on the embellished and embroidery trend that's happening right now in denim.  The trick here is containing sequin patches to the knees (no be-dazzled back pockets here) and choosing a skinny jean to keep the look clean.  Whenever I'm wearing something that feels youthful, I like to mix in serious pieces- like this slim and sophisticated blazer- to create a great high/low mix.
