You may remember I had a do I/don’t I with these pair of embroidered jeans. Do I love them or hate them? I just couldn’t decide whether they had their day (during my childhood), or if I was in fact just too old to wear them.
Well, since then it seems as though the trend is still here and doesn’t look to be going anywhere soon, so I have well and truly jumped on board!
I bought these lovely New Look jeans a couple of weeks ago and you cannot pry them off my legs. (Writing this, I may wear them again today..) They have the popular mom jean fit which I know isn’t to everyones taste. As a petite 5’2, admittedly the fit is not to my taste! But I think in this case, it works. With the embroidery and the fact that they are black. Something in that gives them a little more shape.
They are affordable and come in two colours, although there was an option, naturally I went for black. New Look have lots of different styles, some with less embroidery if you are building yourself up for the full shebang! (As an FYI, all of the embroidered jeans I looked at in New Look were a thick denim jean feeling and not the soft jean material.) A cropped straight leg, is not my usual style of jean. These were not cropped on my little legs, I rolled these up which I think added to the laid-back look. Throw on a pair of converse, or a pair of ankle boots to dress them up. I have done both and it completely changes the look of these jeans to fit the occasion.
As I said, these jeans would look really great with a heel or a boot, a nice blouse or a chunky knit which is how I would normally style them. In reality while exploring the streets of Oslo, I was going to be wearing nothing other than trainers, a big jumper, a big jacket and a big scarf. It was so cold in Oslo, the bigger, the better.
Over Autumn/Winter these jeans make a great standout piece for any outfit. Even lasting right through to Spring/Summer with a cool slogan tee or thinner knit. I have received so many compliments on them which is always a nice feeling. Especially when trying something out of your comfort zone.
Sometimes as a safe dresser, you have to jump a little out of your comfort zone! Just a little. I think I need to remind myself of that more often. Try new things, if it doesn’t work, move on.
