5 Jean Styles to Try With Your Cowhide Bag
If you’ve been keeping up with our blog, then you already know how to pair your favorite hats and jackets with a Holy Cow Couture cowhide bag. Today, our style team is back with more tips and inspiration for you. Let’s talk about denim!
Denim is something that most of us already have in our closets, and a fresh accessory or trendy handbag is all it takes to breathe new life into even your oldest, most well-worn jeans! Read on to learn more about how to experiment with your jean styles, and find the perfect bag to match in our online collections of handmade designer leather handbags.
1. Skinny Jeans: Simple and Versatile
Skinny jeans have been part of popular fashion for almost two decades now, earning a staple spot in closets all around the world. It’s safe to say that the skinny jean is here to stay, and no wonder — they’re comfortable, flattering, and can go with just about any look! Whether you wear them in a light wash or dark wash, distressed or blemish-free, the skinny jean silhouette is a stylish foundation for your outfit.
With a simple skinny jean, you get to choose which part of your look makes the statement! So don’t be afraid to go for a cowhide purse with fringe, bold colors, a hair-on-hide finish, or other eye-catching combinations. With so many great designer leather handbags to choose from at Holy Cow Couture, it’s easy to find the perfect accessory for your favorite pair of skinny jeans!
2. Bootcut Jeans: The Modern Cowgirl
As much as we love a great skinny jean, the classic bootcut silhouette also deserves a spot on your style radar! Ever since style icon Brigitte Bardot was photographed in bootcut jeans in the late 1960s, they’ve joined the Little Black Dress and the simple white tee as an essential closet basic that will never go out of fashion.
Bootcut jeans are often seen as more down-to-earth than their skinnier counterparts, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring or frumpy! We love a jean with interesting details like stitching on the pockets, mild distressing, or even a subtle gradient at the heel. You can find similarly subtle details on many of our handmade cowhide bags, including carved leather finishes, studs, or tassels on zipper pulls. Choose a bag with details that speak to you, and pair it with your favorite bootcuts for a look that’s totally your own from head to toe!
3. Wide-Leg Culotte Jeans: A Sophisticated Silhouette
Now let’s talk about a style that’s not quite as commonly worn, but still effortlessly fashionable: denim culotte pants! Culottes were originally worn by upper-class gentlemen in the late 18th century (back when they were still called ‘knee breeches’), but today, the style is decidedly more feminine. Culotte pants are usually wide-legged, fall somewhere on the calf, and made with light, breezy fabrics — which makes denim a chic and unexpected choice!
Denim culottes create a strong silhouette, so feel free to use accessories to soften the look. We love pairing a culotte pant with pretty peekaboo heels, layered jewelry, and of course, a Western-style purse from Holy Cow Couture. Choose a cowhide bag with fringe to introduce some movement to your outfit, and match the colors to your favorite jewelry for a look that feels effortlessly put together.
4. Embroidered Jeans: A Splash of Color
One of our favorite things about denim is that it’s a neutral that goes with just about anything, but just because it’s versatile doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Case in point: embroidered floral details can take a simple wide-leg jean from good to great. Embroidery is a fun, playful way to inject a little more personality into your look, and even soft colors will pop against dark-washed denim!
There are a million ways to accessorize with embroidered jeans, including choosing a trendy handbag with embroidered details to match! Many of our custom purses feature hand-stitched cows, pigs, or other fun figures. Too much embroidery in one outfit for your taste? You can also let your jeans do all the talking and opt for a simpler bag in a neutral tone with subtle accent colors. The possibilities are endless, and the choice is up to you!
5. Double Denim: Bold and Beautiful
We’ve already talked about the merits of a great denim jacket in our post “6 Jacket Styles to Pair With Your Cowhide Bag,” and today, we want to encourage you to wear it loud and proud over your favorite pair of jeans! Double denim is a statement look that communicates confidence, style, and a little bit of an edge.
Dressing in a true neutral from head to toe gives you endless freedom when it comes to choosing a great handbag! You can dress the look up by pairing it with heels and a feminine bag in soft colors, or keep it down-to-earth with cowgirl boots and a simple hair-on-hide purse.
