When it comes to denim-on-denim outfits, "sexy" probably isn't the first word that comes to mind, unless, of course, you're looking at actress Cara Santana in an affordable denim set from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's (both pieces totaling just $63), which she described as "'90s Cindy Crawford" and clearly nailed it.
Speaking on the "Shattering the Comparison Culture: Dressing For You" panel presented by Kohl's at this year's POPSUGAR Play/Ground, Cara wore a white denim jacket and jeans, styling in snake-print heels, a half-moon basket bag, and resin hoop earrings for a playful finish. Already a perfect look for balmy Summer weather, the actress heated things up by styling her jacket as a top and wearing it open to show off her toned abs — hot damn!
While the midriff-baring look is a sexy option for a Summer date night, it could skew a tad risqué for work, dinner, or a party. But don't fret! The combo can easily be toned down with a simple tank top or t-shirt layered underneath. Or you could button up the jacket all the way if you're into the jacket-as-a-top look — options abound!
Ahead, witness Cara's look at this year's POPSUGAR Play/Ground, then shop her exact denim jacket and midrise jeans from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's (plus similar accessories to complete the look!). If a high-waisted jean is more your vibe, we've included the perfect $50 option for you, too!
