New Obsession Alert: Blue Denim and the #PerfectPair
Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, straight leg jeans – whatever they’re called, if they aren’t skinny jeans, I always have to think twice. I love the look of a looser leg jean and you guys will have seen me wearing blue denim to death lately, but being so short and with thicker thighs, often relaxed fits are tight at the top and baggy at the bottom. This means I can very easily look like I have tree trunks for legs. That being said, I haven’t found a pair of jeans that I’ve loved so much as these Pretty Little Thing Kendall Jeans in a long time (makes sense the relevant hashtag is #PerfectPair then!).
Available in a light blue and mid-blue wash, these high waisted mom jeans are rip-free (such a rarity these days) with a soft bleaching effect on the front and rolled up hem (you can roll them down, they aren’t stitched). Nothing looks more carefully careless than the stiletto heels/mom jean combo, and whilst here I’ve gone for that 100% in my fave Pretty Little Thing lace up mules, normally I would wear pointed loafers or a pair of all white superstars for comfortable cool.
Blue denim seems to be really having a revival at the moment as we all move away from (but desperately still covet) our black skinnies, and I for one, am in. Lately all I’ve been bulking out my wardrobe with is blue denim, whether that’s in the form of relaxed jeans or cute playsuits and dungarees for S/S. I always feared lighter washes would accentuate the wonderfully chunky nature of my legs, and whilst undoubtedly softer blues aren’t as flattering as carbon black, they’re still pretty darn cute. If you haven’t got a decent pair of denim blues in your wardrobe, then it’s about time you picked up your #PerfectPair, don’t you think?
