It’s that time of year where the office party is coming up, or holiday parties in general, and you are wondering what to wear. During the Winter months, some of you wont want to wear a dress as it’s too cold, so why not opt for a pair of jeans? Jeans are becoming more and more versatile by the day and they are the most popular choice of bottoms. I have put together a list of my 5 favourites and each are different. You can see the choices below.
These are one of my absolute favourites! They are dark, clean and classic! The 901 Leggings are also incredibly comfortable so you don’t have to worry about feeling restricted in these. The Starless wash also has a gorgeous sheen to it. Since these are so dark and skinny, they would work with just about anything! I think paired with a blazer and killer heels would look the best!
These are also a pair that I am in love with! Again, they are the 901 Leggings, so super comfortable, but they are a beautiful red. The best part is that they are waxed so they shine, almost like you might be wearing leather. That’s what makes these jeans so special. At the Donna Ida Denim Clinic I styled these quite a few ways, but my favourite way was with a leather style biker jacket, a leopard print scarf and some heels. I think you can’t go wrong with that look! The colours work so well together.
Why not have some fun with your denim as well? Leopard print is huge at the moment and my favourite pair of jeans with the print is still the Current/Elliott ones above. I think they are subtle enough to wear with confidence as the print is all grey. You can feel great in them while still having a stand out pair of jeans. So many celebs have worn this pair and I think the best outfits are the monochrome style ones so keeping it to a black, white and grey colour palette works best.
Another huge trend of the moment is leather! Leather pants are really expensive though so luckily there are some cheaper faux options out there, much like these AG Jeans. They are faux leather but they look just like the real thing. I think they are gorgeous and obviously AG Jeans have an amazing fit. I would go down the route of pairing these with a leopard print shirt and heels, but if that’s too bold for you, you can try a simple one colour blouse with some high heels.
The Lou Lou is Paige’s best skinny flare jean to date and it really is slimming in the thighs. It’s a sexy flare and it does make you feel feminine, it doesn’t make you feel swamped or hide your body shape, it only enhances it. I chose the Lorna/my wash in this cut because it is a versatile wash. The dark colour means it can work with so many clothes, but combined with the cut I find it to be really slimming. If you don’t like skinny jeans then flares are a good way to go! I would recommend wearing these with a blazer and some high heels or wedges, but make sure the flare covers the shoes so your legs look super long! Unless you have long legs already then you can pair them with flats like Cindy Crawford wore these.
It seems like almost anything goes in terms of fashion these days, including in the workplace. While sure what you’d wear on your days off may not always be appropriate for the work place, the idea of what works for work is ever-changing. Do you follow the adage “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have?” or prefer to wear more casual attire?
If you work in a casual environment, do you feel as though you’ll never have the opportunity to wear your nicer clothes since it’s a causal environment? If you work in a more formal-attired setting, do you wish you could dress more casually?
We teamed up with one of the most popular online retailers for denim, Revolve Clothing, to create a special Holiday Boutique. I selected my favourite jeans of the moment, which I think will make great gifts, as well as some other items which would be great for the holiday season! There are also a couple of little present ideas in there too! The Revolve Clothing Holiday Boutique also features other boutiques from Nicole Richie, Lauren Conrad and a few more.

After trying on lots of different jeans and styles at the Donna Ida Denim Clinic, the next part was the styling. Jo, the stylist, and I both decided to create two looks that are a lot different to what I would usually wear. We picked a silk shirt with a tailored navy coat and even though the colours are quite contrasting, put together it really works. The second outfit was a more simple one of an oversized striped sweater and a printed scarf. You should definitely check out the denim clinic if you get chance to, it’s amazing!
