The New Jean Silhouette

Well it’s hardly brand new but it’s certainly taken some time to get us creatures of habit out of our skinnies!

Some of us would have been wearing a high rise jean for some time (a skinny high rise).   But how on earth have these skinnies fill up our jean rails for the last decade + ? Not a glimmer of hope or a bat of an eyelid for any other style.  A much needed change of jean silhouette was needed, and what better way to bring the denim back to life with the best authentic, lived in real jean look that the likes of Levi’s, gave everyone back in the 70’s, a real bum, and a longer leg.  Be it cropped or full length you absolutely have to get real again and get your non stretch, hard wearing, straight leg, high waisted jean on!

Whilst sussing out some perfect pics to get you all onboard I came across two articles that I found highly entertaining and thought I would share a snippet of both.  I have to say if you read the full article by Man Repeller, she doesn’t instil much confidence as far as the comfort levels go but believe me, mine are oh so comfy, and whilst the eating factor is absolutely true, if I eat a little I find myself with this little kangaroo type pouch between my button and my “you know what”.  Regardless, Im in love!

Man Repeller wrote:

“There is nothing more enticing than the prospect of encasing my loin fruits in a suction cup of denim that fastens right below the ribcage. I pull the 11-inch zipper up slowly, relishing in the compact delight of two halves of this delicious Levi’s sandwich becoming one, circling my torso in a perfectly sized love lock. I look in the mirror. A hologram of Ryan Gosling dips a finger in the blood of my enemies and writes on the glass, “Hey girl, did you swap butts with a young Brooke Shields or are you just wearing your favorite high-waist jeans?”

Vogue Wrote:

“Rigid, 100 per cent cotton denim jeans – the original androgynous utility staple – have been overlooked during the decade-long rise of stretchy, spray-on skinnies. How did these clingy, wafer-thin, denim-ish imposters, which are not actually jeans, achieve world domination? They fed our weakest desires for a teenage sort of comfort and provided the illusion of a lean figure, instantly. Somehow it had become acceptable to wear a pair of mock-denim leggings with belt loops and fake rips at the knees outside the house for the sake of that streamlined silhouette. Impatience also played a part.”

And if you can’t be forced into it all that just yet, I always swear by the high rise Jamie Jean, if you’ve been a client of mine you would of almost certainly have bought a pair on a shop!

50 Shades of Blue

Denim is branching out into bags, shoes, belts and more. This is not the first time we’ve seen denim heels on the streets but I guess each time the trend reappears the actual denim jeans that we are sporting are themselves in a different phase. There’s a lot trending in the way of denim at the moment and if you are enjoying your skinnies, boyfriends,girlfriends, ripped or even flared then you’re spot on. The great thing about the large variety of styles trending right now is that it’s difficult to get bored of wearing your jeans when we can mix them up so, a different style for each day of the week!
I’m looking for a great pair of white jeans at the moment. Now I don’t know about you but I personally feel that unless you have the skinniest of pins, with a gap the length of a small ruler between your thighs and a perkier butt than Gisele, the White skinnies should be left for the runway. So I’ve started perusing the girlfriend line of jean… this is not too baggy and not a straight leg either, maybe it’s neither here nor there but what I’ve tried I have liked 🙂 and the pair I’m probably going to put my money on is this Current/Elliot pair.

Some denim items to covet now are endless but for now make sure to get yourselves one, some, or all of the following:
A denim jacket J Crew
A denim dress Stella McCartney (currently looking for a cheaper version of this beauty)
Denim dungarees Zara
A denim skirt Net-a-Porter
A great pair of ripped, girlfriend or boyfriend or 70’s flares (for the more adventurous) Some faves: Straight Leg J Crew // Flip flop Flares Current/Elliot // Patch work boyfriend  J Crew // Ripped Zara // Skinny Maternity J Brand
And if you’re feeling up to it, a denim play suit Mango

I leave you with some Looks to Love below.

You go off and have a rethink about this reputable blue cloth now! 😉
