I always associated white jeans with summer, you can tell that from this previous post. I mean the whole white theme it just has this crisp spring freshness that reminds me of warmer weather. As the weathers cooled, okay I use the term cooled lightly, it is bloody freezing! I thought the novelty of white jeans would wear off, no pun intended but its ice cold and they are still here.
The reason as to why they haven’t disappeared into storage is obvious they have that effortless chic touch, and if the hem is frayed it’s even better. They give the classic denim a modern touch, this weekend I worked on four ways to style the white jeans
The jeans themselves are from Zara. I bought them from the TRF ranged and they had these trendy things hanging on the end, lets just say I cut those off and now they have a raw hem and look a little flared. I love that, most people actually ask if that is how they were bought. You don’t have to get yours from Zara though there is a wide variety of jeans currently in store. Below are a few of my favourites.
I love monochrome looks, they take little thought, you don’t have to think of what matches, but the best way to stop yourself drowning in one colour palette is mixing and playing with different textures. I loved pairing the white jeans with this slinky satin top. It adds elegance and its almost a cream which gives the outfit a bit more definition. At first glance this monochrome look seems a little monotonous, but, its all in the detail. The keyhole and button detail at the back. The pairing with the black belt. the long sleeves. It’s always about little touches.
Nothing looks more laid back than the colour khaki. The khaki shirt is a great way to play up white jeans, it is a muted colour, shirts are formal, but the linen texture is also quite laid back. Now if only it hadn’t crinkled in the suitcase before my shoot (more on blogging woes later). I can totally see myself wearing this to go and meet up with friends for a casual lunch or even at work. The khaki shirt highlighted the jeans freshness and I finished it off with black boots, and the black belt. okay I finished off every look with the black belt. Get yourselves a black belt. It really does wonders. To mix it up, I also added the red boots.
I have been loving slogan tees and decided to start a line of them on my website www.elleestfemme.com. They are all about female empowerment and one of my favourite tees is the ‘approval’ tee.I love the bright red with the white. the metallic boots and the over-sized fur coat too. I am all about throwing on looks that look like they took a long time to prep when really they took no time at all.
Saving the best for last, was a twist on the checked blazer, this has been everywhere these past few months. I have had this grey pinstriped blazer since I was 11, its from Debenhams and has this cute strap to close it. I wont say how many years ago that was but funny how fashion comes back around. The checked blazer has been everywhere now, and if you are not a suit girl a tee and jeans will always dial down the formality of a blazer.
I realise this is my first post this year, but I will make sure to blog more regularly. Which of the looks were your favourite? My personal favorite were the monochrome and also the grey blazer. Signing off now speak to you guys in my next post.
