Hello, my friends! It’s a school night and I was debating whether it is the right thing to do posting a casual look instead of something more work-friendly, but then shipping takes a few days, so when you get your package, it will be just in time to try this new denim trend I am about to share with you. 🙂
Spotted this pair of boyfriend jeans on Totokaelo beginning of the year, it was the boyfriend jeans after my dreams: super light wash, distressed but not shredded, loose leg but fit snuggled around the hip, and best of all, it doesn’t seemed to be low-waisted. It took some digging around to find out what they are…Levis 501, of course.
What amuses me the most is not how perfectly “aged” these jeans are, is they are actually old jeans that have been refinished. The concept of Denim Refinery could be very appealing to many, imagine you can breathe new life into your old pair for about 1/3 you’d pay for the new “it” denim. For example, I have a pair of light gray skinny jeans that hasn’t seen the light of day for almost two years now, I can just send it over and pay $98 to have it distressed (shipping is free, btw). A couple of weeks later, voila! a perfectly distressed pair and I would save over $100.
Fun enough, light-wash, loose-fit, not so much about distressed, are the new jeans directions of this spring. The long-legged ones can wear them at full length and pair with flats of all sorts (oxfords, loafers, sneaks, flatforms, etc) and for the relatively short-stemed, like yours truly, roll up the ends and pair with sexy heels or sky-high platforms.
Denim goes with everything, for the tops, I went with a light khaki army blouse and a tweed jacket in deep olive green. The tri-color bag highlights two color groups of this outfit: blue and green. I opted for zero jewelry except the stud earrings, it would be a prefect outfit for statement rings or wrap bracelets, however.
Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!
