Denim jackets and dresses—a go-to outfit combination when the weather can't make up its mind, but you've probably never seen them paired quite like this. A millennial take on street chic fashion, the BioSilk Sequins and Silk collection combines dressed-down denim and high-fashion elements while showing off hairstyles ranging from wearable waves and texture to edgier, dressed up styles for day and night.
“I like the juxtaposition of styles between the sequin dresses and the jean jackets with sneakers. It shows that all looks are transformable and transferable, as is the hair. You can easily wear any of these styles for a casual day out or a glam night on the town," says stylist Ivan Rodriguez.
