Another pair of black jeans please
You have probably seen my last post by now, I’m so excited I could oui! and the excitement of it all made me completely forget about my Outfit of the week, so while I’m away stuffing my face with croissants, here’s this week’s #OOTW.
This week’s #OOTW is a staple and an item I couldn’t live without. The change of season always makes me pull out clothes I haven’t worn for a while and somehow I feel refreshed, but there is one thing that remains the same for me; black jeans. It’s hard to go past denim but there is something about black jeans that really floats my boat.
It is so important to have an understanding of brands and their sizing, shapes and styles of jeans and even more so, what materials work for you. I’m a fan of skinny jeans and to be honest traditional denim doesn’t do it for me. I prefer a softer, more flexible material with just the right amount of stretch.
These kinds of jeans means I can take them through all seasons. Ok, maybe I wouldn’t wear them in 40 degree heat (I hardly think I’ll face that temperature here) but you get my drift. I love going from a casual day look to wearing them on a night out and it’s amazing how one item can create so many different looks. I wear my jeans so often I have a few pairs on the go. I wear them to the point that the holes are beyond repair and they have faded so much they are now different shades of grey. Even then I can’t throw them out so I have developed a hierarchy system; brand new pair, new pair, old pair which can be worn in public and an old pair for around the house. There are sub layers in this hierarchy but I won’t bore you!
We all have those pieces that we love and can’t live without and I say everyone needs a pair of black jeans in their wardrobe.
What’s your staple item?
