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.
After 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 🙂
I think everyone owns a least a few pair of jeans. Before I started wearing trousers, jeans were literally all I owned. I suppose they are timeless and easy to wash, so they are a safe investment of money.
A way to switch up your jeans game a bit is but doubling up on the denim. Double Denim. Dam dam dam. People usually try and stay away from double denim but it is actually quite a cool way to mix up your wardrobe.
In my opinion, double denim in menswear looks best when pairing up a dark denim and a light denim. On today’s picture, I am wearing dark blue slim leg jeans and a light wash denim jacket. Having something plain underneath such as a grey jumper or a white t-shirt is a good way of not overdoing the look. I think printed t-shirts or brand items (Levis, Calvin Klein, Adidas) would look quite cool with this look, as well.
