Denim

Simply Said

Keeping it simple with some ripped denim, a white structured top and nude pointed toe pumps. I have to admit, I’m becoming a bit obsessed with nudes and neutral tones. It simple, chic and can actually make your outfit look expensive. Nudes go with anything, so you can easily mix and match the same pieces to create your personal uniform. Style Tip: When in doubt, wear nude. I’m also a huge fan of pairing the not so obvious pieces together – like I did here with a more dressier top and ripped denim. This top was actually purchased back in 2011 from Zara and I ‘ve kept it in good condition because it’s one of my favourite pieces. Boxy tops like this are still in and is actually a classic piece because you can use this to build with other pieces in your wardrobe. Also, white is still going strong and again another hit for Spring, as seen on the SS15 runways.

11 Unique Ways To Wear Overalls

 photo

 

If I had to describe the overalls, it would definitely be a ‘Man Repeller‘ item. You know those items us ladies wear that are super unappealing to the opposite sex – well the overalls are one of them. The overalls were definitely a childhood favourite of mines – I almost wish I kept a pair. They’re great for those days off, where you want to look like you didn’t try, yet still look super stylish. But let’s face it, overalls is an intimidating item to style and pull off. My tip is to treat them as if they’re jeans because you can pretty much pair them with just about any top. You also don’t need to spend a lot of money on this item, unless of course you’re in it to support your favourite brand. Trends like this that keeps returning you can easily pick up a pair at your local vintage spot. For your style reference, see my picks on some of the most stylish ways to wear your overalls.

Is it summer yet? There is just something about when the weather gets warmer – my mood is a lot more up beat, I notice that people are definitely more cheerful and for me personally its way easier to pick outfits out. Lately I’m getting into having flowers in my place, for now I go faux, but definitely will go the real deal soon. It is true what they say about flowers, it does lift  your spirits and put you into a much better mood. To kick-start this season I had to pull out one of my favourite pieces to rock when the weather gets warmer. Denim cutoffs are a must for me for the warmer weather. It’s a classic piece that you can pretty much pair with anything for a casually cool summer afternoon. in this look I paired mines with a white tee, blazer and nude pumps.

There is  a lot happening in this look, but for some reason, it works! If you’re not totally into this entire look, try just a basic sweater over your ripped jeans and finish off with an over-sized coat.

The key to pulling this look off is to ensure your waist fits and the leg is loose. Pair these baggy ripped jeans with a fitted top to balance the look.
