If In Doubt, Do Denim

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

That’s my fashion motto. Whenever I’m feeling unsure about my style, fed up with my wardrobe or confused by the weather (that’s today), I reach for the denim and suddenly all is well once more.

Denim can be drab when worn alone, so I have a few other items that are perfect for dressing up jeans or a chambray shirt. The ASOS spike necklace is an old favourite I wear every other day, and my Vivienne Westwood shoes are surprisingly versatile considering the sparkly pinkness of them. Finally, a touch of Topshop’s Brighton Rock lipstick and a shiny new handbag and my outfit doubts are put to rest.

What’s your failsafe when you just can’t decide what to wear?

My failsafe tends to be an empire line jersey dress with a huge cardi and brogues! So boring, but works every time! I LOVE your new bag. My TK Maxx is rubbish! Think I need to head to Leeds for a rummage!

I’ve been on the hunt for a ‘goes-with-everything’ denim shirt for a while, I really love yours! My failsafe is always skinny jeans + white tee + black blazer + pumps (and usually a pashmina) – always looks effortless and in fact it is!

Love this outfit – especially love the necklace as I always feel when I wear a denim shirt that it needs something ‘more’. Also love those burgundy skinny jeans, such a great colour. My failsafe when I don’t know what to wear is skinnies or leggings, a stripey long t-shirt and a long cardigan. I wear this outfit too often!

I’m definitely a denim girl! I can’t stay away from it! It’s so fail-safe and comforting! Love those red jeans you’ve got on – really need to get myself a pair of those! πŸ™‚ x

You would be walking around with no shoes or bag if I was anywhere near you now! Would definitely take you down for that bag. πŸ™‚
I love wearing my Topshop jeans, the berry colour is great for this strange weather.

My fail safe would be leggings and a long top/dress. I love the denim shirts but they don’t seem to suit me Don’t know if it’s because I’m short but they always look like jackets rather then a top. I love this look on you though, with the berry jeans….gorgeous xxx

i love a good rummage in Tk Maxx, this bag was a find – its lovely. denim is always my fall back option – simple, laidback & gives an edge to any tea dress!

I worked at Vivienne Westwood’s Archive and when I first saw those shoes I had really mixed reactions. However, When I started seeing different people wear them with all kinds of outfits I was also surprised! I must say you wear them well! Plus they smell AMAZING! x
