There’s something about wearing skinny jeans in the summer which can make me feel just a bit “eugggh”. They can be a bit hot and sweaty which is never a good feel. The trouble is, come the winter, everything feels a bit snug – so from time to time, it’s good to get the skinnies back on. And let’s face it with our unpredictable weather, there’s usually the odd arctic day, even in the summer.
So when Baukjen asked me to choose a few pieces to style, I immediately headed for the Brook relaxed pants (£95). With a composition of 97% cotton and 3% elastane they are a winning combination because they are lovely and cool plus they also have that bit of stretch for comfort.
I’m also wearing the Eleanor blouse from Baukjen (£79), which I absolutely love. With a composition of 95% viscose 5% elastane, it’s a lovely feeling fabric – soft and silky and the neck ties just add that little bit of something cheeky. It’s really good for work or casual and the v-neck is fabulous for women with curvier busts.
The fab thing about both of these pieces is that being neutral they will work with so many other pieces in your wardrobe colour wise. And being simple shapes you can do the whole dress up, dress down thing. The trousers could be worn with heels, wedges, slides, trainers, espadrilles – you name it, they work with them. And as for tops, Bardot style, peasant style, nautical, de-constructed – they’are all for the taking. Plus, the top can be hugely dressed up for the evening or dressed down with busted jeans or cut-offs.
So, I hope that gives you something to ponder over the weekend. Good wardrobe basics are so essential in creating the building blocks for everything else and these truly are lovely items to have in your wardrobe. Have a super weekend! Beth x
