Want to dress up your simple and casual skinny jeans for a romantic spring date? Here’s how to wear a cute top and heels with it, plus a smart casual jacket!


Who doesn’t love spring? And you know those days when it’s cool enough to wanna hang out in the sun, but warm enough to wanna take off your jacket? The perfect weather! Well, Chandigarh is great with springs. Flowers, greenery, lots of sunlight with clear skies and no cold winds – just some cool breeze!


I wanted to create a fresh spring look for this weather. March is the month of flowers, and red roses are my favorite. So I tried to create a romantic red rose outfit, all from my existing wardrobe – some of the pieces are what I wear everyday, and some I haven’t worn in a while. I mixed them up to create a spring day look – smart casual – great for a casual work day to a lunch date.


Skinny jeans are so versatile – you can pair them with sleeveless¬†blouses, slouchy sweaters or crop jackets. You can create semi-formal or casual looks with them. I love formal black jackets, and I wear them everywhere from work to airports to casual dinners. Here, I wanted to use it for a smart casual look paired with jeans, so I chose skinny jeans that’s cropped at the ankles but not faded or ripped. I wore the jacket with sleeves rolled, to make it look more casual, over a print knit sleeveless top.


The makeup is very sensuous, with a bold red lip and deep lined eyes. I used a shimmery copper eyeshadow palette to create a smokey eye look and a bit of blush and bronzer for contouring.



I accessorized the outfit with a black sequinned cross-body flap-bag, red peep-toe heels and nail polish to match the rose print, and a delicate crystal Christmas star worn around my neck as a pendant.


So I hope you liked my romantic spring look, and hope you got some ideas on how to create outfits with skinny jeans. How do you like to wear your skinny jeans, and how do you do your spring outfits? Lemme know! Comment below!
