No More Jeans

We often buy a nice pair of trousers or a skirt thinking, “we gotta branch out here,” but almost every day, we end up putting on a pair of jeans. Let’s face it—jeans are great. We’ve never tried to go a week without denim and it was harder than we thought. Thanks for the incredible inspiration you sent in!

Love, gp

P.S. This past week, I was very saddened to learn of the death of David Collins, a friend and a real talent. David had a discerning eye and created truly beautiful, inspirational interiors. He was a deeply lovely and thoughtful man. —GP

Jeans

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you for your best jeans-free outfits. After sifting through tons of submissions, here are some of our favorite looks and how you can recreate them.

At the Office

The girls at Stella McCartney’s office were also up to the test.

Sehlina is wearing head-to-toe Stella McCartney,except for the vintage army shirt she found on Portobello Road in London.

Laura is wearing Topshop trousers with Stella McCartney top, shoes, and tote.

And our very own goop interns were put to the challenge.

Eirian’s top and jacket are by Max&Moi, trousers by Zara, sandals by Tods and bag by Katja Tamara.

Julia’s shoes are by blowfish, top by Monrow, skirt by Ann Taylor Loft, clutch by Clare Vivier and ring by Sarah Chloe.

Jean-Free Work Week

Inspired by readers’ submissions, GP took the challenge and banned jeans from Monday to Friday.
