It’s that time of year when those party dates are looming and it’s time to plan what to wear. There are so many looks that I love for this time of year from a statement skirt, heels and a fine knit jumper, to silk joggers and a pretty blouse, p(l)eather leggings and a white shirt and then…..a little predictable I know…good old jeans.
The thing with jeans is that because they are a safe option, I feel that I can go to town with the colours and the sparkle, without feeling too conspicuous. Black, grey or navy trousers would enable the same look to be created but there’s something about faded jeans in this “new” style cut that I like. “New” being a mixture of girlfriend/boyfriend/mom and straight jeans all rolled into one. No, I’m non the wiser either.
So, having selected your jeans, it’s time to have fun. I’ve mixed dark sparkle on the top (link above), with bright shoes and a bright bag. But the options are endless – sparkly shoes with a bright top and bright bag, sparkly bag with bright shoes and bright top, bright shoes, bag and top – maybe work in a print, or stripes, or some fake fur.
I’ve been after some shoes in this style for quite while now. I’m a bit late to the “v-cut shoe” party but you know, it’s fashionable to be late. The block heel is so comfortable too – really sturdy and, having put them to the test with a glass or two of fizz, and maybe even a glass or two of gin, I can confirm that they are indeed, very sturdy.
I have to say that I was slightly worried that they might stain easily, with them being satin. But after I went to the loo and splashed water on them when drying my hands, they were fine. Bet you’re all relieved to hear that aren’t you?!
The clutch I’m using is a Whistles one that I bought in the New Year – if you wait until the end of January they have amazing reductions. They don’t currently have a yellow one but this one caught my eye – I really love the colour of it and it would work so well with the pink shoes 🙂
Part of my decision to wear jeans was because we were sitting down for most of the night, meaning that it was all about the top. But it’s such an easy look to create for any event – chuck on some jeans, hunt down some bright bits and bobs – sparkly or clashing ones if you like – stick on some lippy and it’s job done.
