In the days when the low-rise, boot-cut was the only jean to wear I was always a little non-experimental with my jean choices. I used to find a great brand that had jeans that fit me well and then stick with them and that was it. It’s all changed now though, what with the dozens of styles colours and shapes to choose from, it would be impossible to choose just one style; just ask the celebs:
Only ever to be worn accompanied with killer heels by us mere mortals with less than lean thighs; so therefore never ever with flats…Kate Beckinsale and Megan Fox are rocking theirs with laid back accessories, Megan’s royal blue skinnies look totally Californian with this sweet trilby, aviators, quirky cardi and HUGE wedges. Kate rocks her indigo skinnies with big shades, monochrome scarf and chunky sling backs.
High Street Skinnies:
Dark Wash Skinny Jeans Dorothy Perkins approx. €35 / Open Zip Skinny Jean Lipsy approx. €50
Classic flares worn to the floor to make their legs look super long; not that Gisele Bundchen needs any help there. I love the way she has kept this look so simple, the fitted light grey sweater, a cute black leather jacket tucked over her bag and topped with a sleek pony. While Penelope Cruz dresses hers up for a dinner date; again though, keeping it simple with a plain white tee and fitted black jacket. Not sure about the “I’m not a celeb baseball cap” though, come on Pen, we wanna see that gorge face of yours!
High Street Flares:
Dusty Blue skinny flare Jeans Dorothy Perkins approx. €40 / Skinny Flare Jean Whistles approx. €80
It’s super laid back and casual and now I’m a total convert of this style, the boyfriend jean is absolutely perfect for slinging on with flip flops or flats and spending sunny Sundays in a beer garden or hanging out in the city. Audrina Patridge has kept hers totally chilled with a baggy off the shoulder top, trilby (again? hmmm mini trend I wonder?) and flip flops. With her feminine, elfin looks Winona Ryder can get away with this masculine influenced look, the boyf jeans with a check shirt, boyish flats and a military style jacket.
High Street Boyfriend Jeans:
Boyfriend Jeans New Look approx. €28 / Tall Harper Jeans Topshop approx. €60
