– Creating different looks with jeans –
There is nothing worse than the January blues – trying to find inspiration for life let alone your wardrobe can be taxing. Excuse the pun but let’s not even talk about tax – if you’re anything like me and leave your tax return to last minute every year January is never a fun time!
With that in mind I thought I would show you some ways to style your denim jeans. I’m pretty sure 99% of the population own a pair of jeans so I thought it would be useful to show you different ways to style them to create several different outfits.
I want to start a style series on my YouTube channel to show how you can create loads of different outfits out of just one item to demonstrate how versatile clothes can be.
Jeans have always had a major question mark when it comes to office attire, but seen as I feel at my comfiest in my favourite jeans I wanted to try and find a way to make them smart enough. The formal aspect of the high neck knit ant the longline check coat counteract the casual jeans to create an outfit suitable for any meeting. Obviously if your office has rules stick to them but if you have room to play then something like this would be a great idea to be both smart and comfortable. I’m also not referring to the shoes as comfortable – more of a personal choice! I’m a stiletto gal but this outfit would look super cute paired with some brogues too.

I know it’s a cliche to say florals are in this Spring but looking back at the catwalks florals were tropical, vibrant and back in a BIG way. So if you’re thinking you’ve overkilled the floral think again because even clashing florals where seen on the catwalk.This look I really wanted to concentrate on layering and show how building upon certain fabrics can create a really beautiful look. My tip for layering is tie it all together with a block colour usually in the accessories – like the brown you can see here.JEANS: Factory Fashion

This was one of those outfits you throw together in a second and somehow end up loving it. The contrast of the faux fur gilet with the floral blouse works so great together and has actually inspired me to be more adventurous with mix matching fabrics.This look reminds me of my style queen Olivia Palermo – the skinny jean and pointy flats (yes these are my flats) are totally her vibe.JEANS: Factory Fashion

Let’s talk snake print! Completely inspired by the Elie Saab SS18 show I have a new found love for snake skin (faux) and all the fabulous ways you can incorporate it into your style. I picked these boots up a while a go and was waiting for the perfect outfit to pair them with. The creamy tones match the stitching in the jeans and I think the look even borders on the cowboy style that was also a major SS18 trend.

If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that Factory Fashion is a brand of jeans that I’ve been wearing for over a year now. There are several reasons why I love them and wanted to introduce you to them. Firstly they have a lot of stretch in the material so perfect for chilling crossed legged on the couch, for those long days or even living room yoga if you wish! They cover every single colour and style and cater for so many different sizes! The best bit – they have bum lifting technology that I can personally vouch for and say they do wonders for my derrière. They have a thick waste band that wraps around your waist sucking you in all the right areas avoiding the muffin top situation which occurs so often with jeans. Not only does the fabric include this bum lifting technology but the wash of the jeans gives the illusion of a pert bum too. It a works a little like magic and you can see exactly what I mean in my latest YouTube video – see all these looks including more outfit ideas. Plus I try on another pair of jeans next to my Factory Fashion jeans to see if they really live up to the hype!
