Christmas In The City

We typically associate the holiday season with getting dressed up in fancier pieces and while that’s great for parties and other fun events, I still love to dress down too. Denim is always one of my main go-to pieces for basically any occasion, which is why I was happy to partner with Riders® by Lee® for a fun holiday themed post wearing their Bounce Back

The holiday season in New York City is my absolute favorite. If you’ve never had the chance to experience it for yourself, I really do hope that one day you will be able to. Rockefeller Center usually gets all the love and for good reason, but Bryant Park is just as amazing. They have a huge Christmas tree and ice skating rink along with several little shops, a restaurant and of course some sweet treats. There are tons of spots to just sit down, take in the views and enjoy a cup of coffee or a quick bite. I love that while there are a lot of people there, it doesn’t ever feel as packed as Rockefeller Center. It’s actually been a few years since I went over there during Christmas, so two weeks ago I went for the afternoon with my mom and styled my Riders® by Lee® skinny jeans for the occasion. It was so festive!

I think that some people only view jeans as a casual piece, but when it comes to styling them the possibilities are seriously endless. I loved that the Bounce Back denim are a darker shade, making them even more versatile and slimming. I was going to be walking around in the city, but I still wanted to dress them up a little bit. Since they’re skinny jeans, I was able to pair them with my favorite over-the-knee boots. I’ve always been a fan of the black and dark denim combo. I put on my long camel coat, which I think instantly gave this outfit the chic factor. Even though it’s a neutral, it still served as a great pop of color. The red lip was the finishing touch, of course. You guys know how much I love a bold lip, especially during the holidays! I think it can really make any outfit feel festive and dressier.

One of the most important things that I look for in a pair of jeans is comfort. The Bounce Back denim did not disappoint in that area. I was able to walk around Bryant Park for
several hours and sit down without feeling like I needed to go home and change. I love that the denim is soft and stretchy, which is another important factor for me. I will never be a fan of stiff denim, especially when it comes to skinny jeans. Typically, the skinny jean style can sometimes feel too snug on my legs and hips. I liked that these were not too tight in those areas. Riders® by Lee® makes a promise that there will be “No Bag No Sag” in their Bounce Back denim by the end of the day. I figured that the best way to test this out would be to spend a day in New York City considering all of the hustle and bustle that is always there, even more so during Christmas time. Again, they did not disappoint in this area! This outfit was perfect for a holiday themed afternoon in the city.

Riders® by Lee® is sold at Walmart and the best part is that they’re super
affordable. You don’t have to worry about breaking the bank for a pair of jeans. Make sure to check them out on Instagram for other styling ideas. How would you wear them during the holiday season?
