For this weeks 3 different outfits, 1 pair of jeans post I chose the Paige Premium denim braided shorts in Mojave. I’ve been obsessed with these shorts and the Lou Lou’s for a while but they seem to be sold out in my size everywhere. I think denim shorts are really versatile, you can wear them during any season and they can look different all the time. Buy these shorts here at Coggles.
For the first outfit above I chose a simple and easy to put together outfit involving a hot trend of the moment, crochet. I picked Xhilaration tavia crochet sandals from Target, a crochet tank top from Delias, a rhinestone anchor necklace from Target, a Bijoux heart anise je swarovski crystal ring from Net-A-Porter, a brown floral bar bag from Miss Selfridge and a wooden bangle set from Topshop. Pretty much all of these items are affordable and the outfit is perfect for casual days.
For this outfit I chose something a little more Vanessa Hudgens or Ashley Tisdale style with a Haute Hippie baggy grey tee, some Steve Madden watchout wedges, Ray Ban aviators, silver and black bangles from Dorothy Perkins and a black Mulberry Alexa satchel. I love the look of this outfit because it has more of an edge to it and isn’t as girly.
This last outfit reminds me a lot of a Kate Moss ensemble. It’s definitely more rock chick and darker than a light and girly look. I picked a Rick Owens biker jacket, a sequin tank top by ADAM, a Zoe & Morgan swallow mask ring from Superette, Guiseppe Zanotti black suede fold over boots from Bluefly and a grey Balenciaga bag. I have always liked the leather jacket look with shorts but you can always choose the faux leather jackets if you prefer as I find them more movable and animal friendly, not to mention they are a lot more cheaper! Topshop do a wonderful selection, I own about 3 of them in different colours.
Claudia Schiffer was seen yet again dropping her children off at school in London, England while wearing her MiH Marrakesh flared jeans in Danny wash. I think Claudia honestly looks amazing in these jeans so I understand why she’s wearing them all the time.
She always manages to keep her outfits classic and elegant as well, I love that about her. Not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous. I wonder if we will see Claudia in another pair of MiH jeans? Perhaps a pair of their skinnies? I think she would look hot in the Breathless skinny. Buy these jeans online at MiH Jeans.

This weeks review is on the MET Xfit 360 Super Stretch jeans/jeggings. I got sent these from the brand from their Spring/Summer 2011 collection and I am in love with them!
The wash of these is actually my favourite part of them. It’s a pastel/chalky/dusty blue and it has so much life to it! Normally with jeggings they come in the classic washes but MET took it a step further with these. The wash actually reminds me a lot of a Diesel wash with the chalky effect over the bright blue fabric, it’s really pretty and it makes the jeans beautiful in their own right, you don’t need to rely on an outfit to spruce them up.
The fit is one of MET’s classic fits, the Angel skinny jean. The Angel is a low rise, skin tight, thicker waistband cut and it’s really flattering. I own a few pairs of MET jeans now and I have to say these are the comfiest ones I have. They are just so stretchy and hugging that they do feel like a really well made pair of jeggings. Normally MET jeans can be quite tight and restricting but these aren’t at all. I can happily wear them around all day and still be comfortable.
MET can be known for their over the top aesthetics on jeans but this pair won me over because they kept them so simple. They are completely plain except for the little MET tag on the top of the pocket. For a jegging/super stretch jean as well, I have to say they are really quite structured. They are not so thin that they don’t do anything for your shape but they are not too thick either. They are the perfect balance in between which still looks and fits like a great pair of jeans but they have that extra added comfort and move-ability to them.
Elle MacPherson is already a huge fan of the brand and owns multiple pairs of their jeans and I do understand why. I have a few pairs now too and they are a really well made Italian denim brand. I reviewed their faux leather skinny jeans a while back as well, which you can see here. Those are also another favourite of mine.
Heidi Klum, her son Henry Samuel and daughters Lou Sulola Samuel and Leni Klum were seen spending the day at The Grove in West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
Every time I see Heidi she always seems to look so fresh faced and happy. Even though her style is slightly more quirky, she always manages to look good too! This time she chose a darker wash denim jacket to pair with her chinos and tee. I love the striped scarf she accessorized with, it adds that little something extra to the outfit.
