Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield shops her way through the quirky town of Ojai, California, in this season’s key blue jean-inspired pieces.

Yes, Overalls

They’re the furthest thing from frumpy (promise!) when they’re in a slim cut paired with a feminine cap-sleeved top and heeled sandals.

The New Jean Jacket

Collarless, cropped, and frayed: It’s the denim version of the leather moto jacket — more fun over bare shoulders than a cardi.

Tidier Cutoffs

No, not Daisy Dukes. The perfect pair hits just above mid-thigh and is neatly pre-cuffed.

Indigo Dress

Jean-ious: An embroidered linen in deep, dark indigo is the lightweight version of a fall denim dress.

A Structured Blazer

Less stuffy than your navy go-to, shop for one that looks structured but isn’t stiff, thanks to a bit of stretch.

Skinny Jeans

Now even more flattering in a darker rinse! Add a top scrawled with bon mots (such a trend) and suede pumps in a bold color.
