WARDROBE MUST HAVES - THE GENIUS JEANS

A LILY BASS INSPIRED ENSEMBLE
TOP: ZARA
WIDELEGGED JEANS: NEW LOOK
WEDGES: ALDO
SUNNIES: MANGO
BAG: YSL

WIDE LEGGED.
LET'S BRING BACK THE 70'S ONCE AGAIN WITH THIS CUT. MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE AS IT IS VERY COMFORTABLE. I THINK ASIDE FROM THE BOOT CUT, THE WIDE LEGGED IS VERY WORK APPROPRIATE.

ROCKSTAR MOOD WITH MY BLACK SKINNIES
TOP: SPLASH

SKINNIES: NEW LOOK

BOOTS: ZARA

CLUTCH: MANGO


THE SKINNIES.
VERY VERSATILE. CAN BE WORN WITH BOOTS, BALLET FLATS, PUMPS. A CURRENT FAVOURITE AMONG A LISTERS.

BLAZER: FOREVER 21
TANK TOP: NEW LOOK
JEANS: JEANSWEST

PEEPTOE PUMPS: VIA UNO


THE BOOTCUT.
ASIDE FROM BEING SEEN IN A LOT OF RTW SHOWS FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2010, THE BOOTCUT IS THE MOST FLATTERING CUT. IT LENGTHENS THE LEGS AND IF THE WASH IS THE SAME AS THIS PAIR FROM JEANSWEST, IT GIVES THE ILLUSION OF SLIMMER THIGHS.

VEST: GREENHILLS
TANK TOP: MANGO

JEANS: NEW LOOK

WEDGES: ALDO

BAG: YSL

SUNNIES: MANGO


THE BELLS.
A LOT OF DENIM COMPANIES HAVE REINVENTED THIS 70'S FASHION STAPLE. INSTEAD OF BEING BILLOWY AT THE HEM, SOME ARE MORE TAPERED. THIS CUT IS BEST WHEN ITS DARK, MAKING THE THIGH LOOK SLIMMER.


THE MOST FLATTERING CROPPED PANTS ARE THOSE WHICH STOPS 3 INCHES FROM YOUR ANKLE.
BLAZER: FOREVER 21

TANK TOP: MANGO

JEANS: HOT KISS

SHOES: HIGH STYLE FANCIES

CLUTCH: SPLASH


THE CROPPED.
LIKE THE BAGGY, WEARING THE CROPPED CUT GIVES YOU A LOT OF SHOE OPTIONS. FROM PUMPS TO BALLET SLIPPERS TO SNEAKERS.

WEARING THE BAGGY ROLLED UP GIVES YOU MORE SHOE CHOICES.
BLAZER: THE GAP

TANK TOP: MANGO

JEANS: NEW LOOK

PUMPS: ALDO


THE BAGGY.
THIS CUT CAN BE QUITE TO TRICKY TO PULL OFF. SOME LADIES MIGHT NOT EVEN WANT TO TRY THIS CUT AS THIS HAS A TENDENCY TO MAKE OUR THIGHS SEEM BIGGER THAN NORMAL.
IF YOU DECIDE TO WEAR THE BAGGY, CHOOSE A SIZE BIGGER SO THAT IT RESTS ON YOUR PELVIS.

Who does not love jeans? I think that they are one of the best inventions ever. Thanks to Levi Strauss who moved from Buttenheim, Franconia in 1853 to San Francisco in the hopes of opening his brother's dry goods business.

The first denim over alls was produced in 1870, but it was in 1920 when the modern pair of jeans was first created.

I just realised while doing this piece that the cut and colour of jeans determines the entire feel of your ensemble. When I slipped on my pair of black skinnies, the first thing that came to mind was dressing like a rock star or when I saw my bells, I thought of dressing like someone who came from the 70's

I know that there a number of cuts of out there in the market and I do encourage everyone to try on several cuts to determine which pair really flatters them the most.
