For this weeks ‘1 pair of jeans, 3 different looks’ blog post I chose to use a popular pair of high rise flared jeans, the MiH Marrakesh jeans. This particular cut has been a best seller for the brand for a very long time now, they brought out the flared jean before it actually made it’s come back so I thought it was appropriate to use these jeans. Not to mention all the celebs love them! You can buy these jeans online at MiH-Jeans.com.
For the first outfit I paired the jeans with a Japanese ruffle blouse, Lanvin braided wedge sandals from Net-A-Porter, a Mischa Barton Bernie bag, a Topshop thick gold bangle and Miss Selfridge Love gold bangles. The only thing that is really expensive in this outfit is the wedges but there are many other beautiful options around!
The second outfit is a double denim look, I think a light wash denim shirt always matches so nicely with darker flared jeans! I chose a Textile Elizabeth & James Bianca shirt and Elizabeth & James wedge sandals, both from Net-A-Porter, an Elena Meter Belt from Matches, a Proenza Schouler PS1 mini birch bag and a Topshop Owl pendant. I’m absolutely in love with that shirt!
For the third and final outfit I decided to add a bit of sunshine and colour to the look! This one reminds me a lot of a beach outfit or one you would wear casually. I chose a Kelly Bergin silk tee from Net-A-Porter, a Jane Norman floppy hat, Charlotte Olympia Carmen Raffia wedges, an Antic Batik Bodega bag and a Topshop orange ring and necklace.
What pair of jeans would you like me to style next week? And which look is your favourite out of these?
Pippa Middleton, the sister of newly married Princess Kate Middleton, was seen out and about in west London in England yesterday. I think we are going to be seeing a lot of Pippa now, she seems to have become a celeb in her own right.
She was wearing a light wash pair of skinny 7 For All Mankind jeans with flats and a chambray sleeveless top. It will be interesting to see how much her style evolves now she is being followed by the paps all the time. I’m wondering if she will start dressing up more or just stay casual?

Daniel Radcliffe took a stroll through the streets of West Village in New York City while listening to his ipod last week. Daniel was in New York as he was performing in ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’.
He chose to wear a double denim outfit which consisted of a dark blue denim jacket and a light blue pair of skinny jeans. I’ve never really seen Daniel as much of a trendsetter or style icon but I think if he lost the cap and had a plain t-shirt on then this outfit would look much better.
Cheryl Cole posed for photos as she had a relaxing evening at the hit musical ‘Mary Poppins’ on Broadway in New York City a couple of days ago. I would love to see Mary Poppins on Broadway! It looks like Cheryl went backstage to meet Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins) and Gavin Lee (Bert) as well!
She was wearing her J Brand Bette high rise wide leg jeans in Wonderama again but this time she paired them with a Wildfox gold Lion tee and a cream blazer. Even though all of these items feel like they shouldn’t be paired together as they each have a different look to them, the whole outfit works in my opinion. Are you excited to see Cheryl on the US X Factor? I’m sad she’s left ours but she does a fantastic job mentoring and judging. Buy J Brand jeans online at Singer22.com.
