We Never Thought to Do Denim This Way, Chanel Iman

We're down with denim in all iterations, all year long. As colder weather looms, we're seeking inventive ways to rock the steadfast fabric outside of our trusty skinny jeans (and straight, cropped, and wide-leg pairs). Chanel Iman just offered up a worthy—albeit unconventional—alternative.

While out and about in Paris, the supermodel layered a denim mini underneath an oversize button-down, with the skirt just slightly peeking out underneath the shirt. Tough-girl accessories by way of an Alexander Wang fanny pack (worn à la Kendall Jenner over the shoulder) and over-the-knee boots take the effect from ho-hum to whoa. Try this model-approved take when you need a break from your worn-to-death jeans.
