YOUR JEANS, MY JEANS - THE LOVE OF MY LIFE


It's no secret around here that I live in denim. From jeans to skirts, shorts and dungarees, if it comes in denim, I'll have it. If that denim piece comes in black and two different blue washes, I'll have all three!

Jeans have really spiralled out of control over the years. New styles have been introduced whilst old styles end up making an re-appearance before you know it. Cuts like bootleg and flares which I was rocking as a newly fashion loving 10 year old are now making a re-appearance; something I'm sure we all thought we would never debate buying again for AW15, right?!

For me, jeans are easy. More often than enough, I study my wardrobe for about half an hour pulling out different pieces that I could possibly wear for the day. Being honest with you, it all ends up on a pile on my bed (resulting in a floordrobe later on...) and I end up just climbing into a pair of black skinnies any way!

I decided to have a look at the different styles of denim I own and think about new ways I can style them for the Spring. So, here are some of the previous outfits I have styled involving jeans which are three totally different styles. The best thing about jeans (apart from being comfortable, affordable and easy) is the fact they can be dressed up and down. For example, I often wear mine with trainers but also heels! 

I have a lot of black denim styles that need to be re-dyed as they are fading to grey (is there anything more annoying?!). I do love a good pair of "mom" jeans as I find they are very flattering to my figure as I have a smaller waist compared to my hips and bum, so they always look great with crop tops!

Let's get down to the facts of denim now shall we...


So, how many pairs of jeans do YOU wear?

I've counted and I own 12 pairs! Most are skinny jeans however they all have different styles. From rips in the knees, to acid washes, denim culottes and of course my favourites... mom jeans! My most worn pair are a pair of black skinnies from Superdry which I wear on rotation with leggings ALL THE TIME. The pair I don't wear very often are a pair of white skinnies which I've worn only a handful of times, oooops!

As I wear my black jeans most days, they are always in the wash ready for my next wear. Here are some top tips for you when it comes to washing your denim! Anyone fancy freezing their jeans tonight?
I'm now off to look at some new denim styles to wear over the Spring! I'm really hoping I can ditch the black skinnies a bit more for more light wash options. But let's face it... black jeans will always win, won't they?

  5. I didn't realise this was a collab at first and I was thinking 'check this gal out with her fancy infographics'! Love this post, my fella is a total denim geek and constantly tries to convert me. I've tried freezing my jeans before now, cause I'm the type to wash them weekly and let the colour fade - such a sinner!

  6. You can't beat a good pair of jeans. I love all different styles although what really annoys me is a lot of brands make them too long as they assume everyone is very tall. Shorter people aren't really catered for which means I have to keep rolling them up otherwise they will be dragging x
