Billy Jeans Vol.2

In today’s spotlight I am looking at my favourite pair of jeans for the season. Cropped Wide Leg Jeans are a great way to give any outfit an edgier look. Being the polar opposite of the Skinny Jeans, they remind of early 90s every day looks. As my pair of jeans is high waisted, I usually tuck in my tops to give the outfit more shape. I prefer to wear my Cropped Jeans with High Top Shoes. Vans or Converse give a casual finish. If you’re looking for something more sophisticated boots do the trick as well. _mg_6013

Mr. (Logo) T

Sometimes you just don’t feel like dressing up. The slightest point of effort you put into your outfit just makes you uncomfortable and meh. At the same time, you also don’t wanna go out in full tracksuit, though.

screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-12-19-52Well, a good way to get over that is to swap a plain t-shirt or jumper with a Logo T. Grab you black Adidas Hoodie or your Calvin Klein T and pair it up with a simple pair of jeans and you got yourself a presentable every day look!

Jumpers with brand names are usually much more expensive than just the plain version and so you can end up paying £50 for a jumper instead of £15, which is a bit annoying. So make sure to hit the stores during sale season to get yourself a good deal! The CK t-shirt in this picture was €10 and I got it in Italy during the summer sale.

Merry Christmas everyone :)!

Ascreen-shot-2016-12-09-at-22-09-34fter wearing slim jeans for a majority of my life, I have been trying out different things during the last few years. I have written about smart trousers and boiler suits lately, but not a lot about jeans.

Browsing through the women’s section in Topshop the other day with my friend, I was lucky enough to stumble across this pair. I am pretty sure I have been wearing them every day since buying them.

They are the best fitting jeans I have bought in a while (keeping in mind, I found them in womenswear). The two different colours of denim make for an amazing look and open up new opportunities for double denim 😉

For anyone seeking to buy them, they are called Step Hem Jeans by Topshop Boutique and go for £60. In TOPMAN jeans I am usually a W32L32. A size 12 fits me perfectly 🙂

 

Furgalicious

In my post from about a week ago, I said that my favourite winter jacket is the Parka jacket. And even though that is still pretty much the case, I have to admit that there is one winter jacket in my wardrobe that is quite special to me.

I am talking about my navy blue faux fur Harrington jacket. Besides feeling like a pimp when wearing it, it is super comfortable, keeps me warm and looks somewhat fashionable.

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-19-19-42I know fur jackets are still quite sparsely found in menswear in high street fashion retail. For some reason, we all have preconceptions that some pieces of clothing or fabrics are solely targeted at either women or men. And so, when I am wearing my fur jacket I am pretty much guaranteed to have all eyes on me when I walk down the high street. A man in a fur jacket is still something quite unusual.

The fur jacket I am wearing today is actually fromlast year and was bought in Topman. I remember it selling out within one week.

I usually like to keep my outfit quite casual because the jacket is already such a statement in itself. Today I wore cropped grey wool blend trousers, a white boxy t-shirt, a blue  flannel around my waist and my Adidas Superstar. Very casual and comfortable 🙂
