How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
River Island jeans, tee c/o Wildfox, blazer via charity shop, Bertie boots, Mango necklace, Topshop ring, Michael Kors watch
Oh, polka dot jeans. You make my heart sing. And you make my legs look thin. For that, I declare you a … win… ahem.
Obviously poetry is not my strong point. My love for these jeans, however, is unwavering. I was reading Grazia on my way to London last week and these jeans were featured in their Lust List. As soon as I hopped off the train at Kings Cross I was on the Victoria line to Oxford Circus and in River Island’s dressing room (advertising – it works).
Jeans are my everyday staples – I have so many pairs, from my faithful Topshop Kristens to the Next coloured skinnies in maroon and plum. They’re so easy to pull on, can be dressed up with heels or down with flats and have solved many a wardrobe crisis. I wouldn’t usually go for patterned bottoms (it’s the child bearing hips) but I think these babies are rather flattering – they’re so tight, they’re practically Spanx. Not great for eating or sitting down but hey – this is fashion, people!
I know not everyone shares my love for jeans. Apparently, some people don’t even own a pair! Quelle horreur! So tell me – are you a fan of the humble denim trouser? Do you have a favourite pair?
