15 Ways To Wear Grey Skinny Jeans

I love skinny jeans!

If I could hear myself 8 years ago saying that I wouldn't believe it. I used to wear boot-cut style that made me feel frumpy somehow, and when I decided to give skinny jeans I fell in love with them! 
This piece has become my friend for life!

The right pair of jeans should be like your best mate. They will support you, make you feel great about yourself, hug you, accentuate your best features and make you feel lovely whenever you need that comfort. 

Jeans should feel like a second skin to you, comfy and flattering.The only way to find which suits you, is to try, try, try, and then try on some more.

What I love about skinny vs boot-cut jeans is that you can wear them with more voluminous or oversize elevated tops, blouses, sweaters, tunics yet maintain the balance in your body proportions. They look amazing with heels, boots, brogues, pumps and you can style them in numerous ways. 

Most of us would have in our wardrobes a pair of skinny jeans, and if you don't, I suggest you make a space for them in your closet. One pair of boot-cut jeans out, one pair of skinny jeans in, hah!

There is no look you cannot create with the right jeans. 

Let me show you some smart-casual options straight from my own closet!

Where To Buy

GAP, ZARA, Mango, Top Shop ( the best!) and practically everywhere. Try on, try on, try on! Let them skim your curves and accentuate that lovely body of yours in all the right places!!

THE fit

Denim has a varying degree of "give" in it, everything from jeggings to structured and rigid. The more stretch, the less flattering on curves. The stretch will allow more room for your lovely body, whereas a rigid denim will hold you in and flatter more voluptuous figure. Look at 1-2% elastane in the denim composition for optimal fit, for better quality jeans you can allow 5%. 

Look after them

Most jeans only need to be laundered every five or six wears. Do not put them in the dryer or on the radiator. Wash them in cold water, inside out, them hang them up to air dry.

I have for you some simple Yet  "Wow"  outfit ideas that take you from Xmas drinks to New Year looking and feeling totally great:-)

Let's get started!

 

Outfit #1

Easy smart-casual festive look, perfect for pre-Xmas drinks in the evening with your besties. Dress up your casual skinny jeans with sleeveless knitted top and a velvet jacket. Add a statement necklace and your fav ankle boots, and rock it girl!

Outfit #2

Get ready for a Xmas Eve by stepping up your style a bit! Think of an interesting tone on tone look, ie beige/ neutral/ camel colours jazzed up by creative pick & play with textures, fabrics and patterns. Think shiny + mat; solid + pattern; neutral + bold. It is accessories that are the cherry on the cake here;-)

Outfit #3

Xmas Day! Now is the time to wear that fabulous lace skirt hanging in your wardrobe lonely and unworn. Pull it out and if you feel it is "too dressy" for a family Xmas dinner then pair it with your cozy roll neck top in a beautiful colour. Accessorize with dangling earrings and your sparkly silver heels. You look fab lady!

Outfit #4

If you want to move into the evening Xmas drinks with some proper "WOW" factor and feel more dressed up and sexy then jump into a frock that makes you feel this exact way. Think of any asymmetric cut, unusual forms and bold colours. Opt for a statement dress and simple accessories. Festive Chic!

Outfit #5

Let's kick start Boxing Day with some layering! Pull out your classic black leather look skinny jeans and a button up white fitted shirt. This is an awesome base for adding more layers. Think of n embellished, sequin, sparkly or velvet cami as a layering piece over your fitted white blouse. 

Play with textures, eg embellishment + fur OR sequin + cotton. Small details always make a great impact so don't forget to add a unique cocktail ring or a bracelet to accentuate your elegant hands. Sparkly creative!

Outfit #6

Let's do more festive mixing & matching! Pleats, sequin, fur and suede in one outfit, ahh the more, the merrier girls!;-). A red colour on your lips and a glass of red wine in your hand, can you see what I see?;-)

Outfit #7

Ok, by know you may feel tired of those dressed up glamorous looks but still want to keep the festive sparkly mood in your casual day look. Pair your sequin statement tee and a knitted cardi for a super stylish daily glam look. Don’t forget the lipstick!

Outfit #8

New Years EVE time! Look *Smokin' Hot* in the all black look. Tailored black trousers + lace cami+ velvet blazer. This is the look that turns heads as long as the woman who wears it knows how to own it. Yes you can gorgeous!

Outfit #9

New Years Eve- *Smokin' Classic*. Opt for a navy dress with some shiny embelisments or bling and go simple with the earrings. The classic diamond earrings is all you need to create that chic impact. Simple accessories that complement rather than compete with the dress is what you need.

Outfit #10

New Years Eve- *Smokin' Statement*. If you are going to a fancier party and want to create a great impact then a dress like this one from Coast will do the job. Accessorize it with silver diamond earrings and a clutch bag in a similar colour. Look at the shapes and textures in the dress, then choose accessories that fit in. For instance, the skirt has some geo shapes, wide diagonal blocks and asymmetric hem hence I choose geo earrings that match the lines. When it comes to a bag, I think of the clash so that we don't end up with all over shiny look. I suggest you offset this "sleekness" by adding a textured jewelled bag.

How does the stress affect your everyday sartorial decisions on what to wear?

Many of you busy mums, entrepreneurs, professionals deal with stress often. Hectic business life, family and work demands is not going away; it is all about how we deal with it.

When it comes to style, it is so easy to slip into the habit of wearing "lazy clothes" when we feel tired, overwhelmed and stressed out.

When we go this way it is a guarantee that we will feel pretty much same for the rest of the day. But hey, you have another option- dress well regardless of your bad mood and stress. The result - more energy, more enthusiasm, more beauty, more style!

You know how looking put together shifts your energy levels, self-esteem and how you behave among people, and the good news  is that you can turn the uninspiring outfit from "meh" to "yeah" in an instant with those small tweaks!

#1 Add a belt and a lipstick to look more put together in seconds

#2 Add a cool vibe with a trendy slip on shoes and a masculine watch

#3 Add some fun to your look with an eye-catching shoes

#4 Add a scarf to your bag

5 Stylish Ways to Wear Your Breton Top

5 Stylish Ways to Wear Your Breton Top

 Hello Beautiful!

Today I have for you a little style inspiration on how to style a classic BRETON TOP.

 

I believe that many of you have such top in your wardrobes for the key reason- it is super versatile and comfy! It can look very conventional with a traditional buttoned cardigan so if you fancy a bit more modern and chic edge here are my suggestions, right from my closet ;-)

A Breton Top will look great when worn with a midi skirt and a statement colourful necklace or a scarf. Geometric lines look great when combined with rounded shapes, eg think flower print scarf and stripes. Why not combine it with leopard print accessories to add this extra fun and quirky edge or larger scaled stripes.

Where to buy it?

For the purpose of layering under jackets, ponchos, knitwear, blazers, waistcoats and tucking into midi skirts, I found the above Slash Neck Top just Perfect! It is super comfy and flattering and you can buy it for £25 in French Connection. 3/4 sleeves are the best sleeve length for everyone! Elongating your arms, slimming down your upper arms if you want to and giving you an illusion of a waist too! So easy to tuck into skirts, layer under sleeveless dresses and knitwear.

If you prefer a bit more loose / slouchy edge to wear effortlessly with khaki pants/ jeans or tube clingy midi skirts check out this one (French Connection, £30).

Hope this will encourage you to upstyle your good classic Breton friend and if you feel you would like more one-on-one  bespoke advice you know where I am;-)
