It's hilarious to me now how when I had first set out to make these jeans I was slightly skeptical whether I would wear them much... they have so become the backbone to so many outfits! I think I was nervous about the skinniness of them; and whether I could even carry this look off. But I came around! I've worn them countless ways already on this blog... (I've just counted, they have appeared twelve times hehehe :D, but trust me I've worn them stacks more!) The firm but stretchy nature of the fabric make them comfortable and easy to wear, the very simple shape and the drab unobtrusiveness of the neutral colour mean they never steal the show, but just set off so much of what I've got, beautifully. They have been incredibly useful in my wardrobe.
So for today I had a bit of a play at mixing them up a few more times...
Admittedly, during the winter I have worn them almost exclusively with my biker boots. I really like the solidness of the boots visually counteracting the skinniness of the jeans above. At left; air force blue along with the khaki, and my crochet scarf; at right, looking a bit more classic when worn with my Chanel-style jacket
The jeans are skinny enough to pass for tights when worn underneath my (current) favourite dress; at right and looking a bit smarter; for a splash of colour I've always loved the slightly military colour combination of red and khaki together.
At left; if I was heading out to a summery soiree the jeans set off an unusually styled little top and jewelled sandals; and more casually at right; I really like the simple contrast here, the sorta "modern-ness" of the plain jeans when worn with a romantically embroidered floaty ivory top.
Which outfit am I wearing today? well the weather is now delightfully warm and today might be their last gasp before the really hot weather hits, and I am wearing the last casual summery outfit with the ivory top.
Which look here do you like the best?
