I love doing these posts. Finding several different ways to style items is always fun, cos it means I have to really get creative!
It also means I end up really thinking about new clothes before I buy them, to check whether they go with anything else in my wardrobe. Which, in turn, means I end up buying less clothes. (Supposedly…)
George at ASDA recently challenged me and my lovely buddy Jasmin to each come up with three outfits based around a pair of jeans and three with a skirt.
For the jeans’ project, we chose these fab Wonderfit grey skinnies.
Funnily enough, they do exactly what they say on the tin: fit wonderfully! I really struggle to find skinny jeans that fit me properly both at the waist and around my hips, but these have got a lot of stretch in them and fit perfectly.
They’re also not expensive at all, coming in at just £18. A bargain if ever there was one!
Here’s what I styled them with:
1. CASUAL WEEKEND OUTFIT FOR EFFORTLESS LAZY DAYS
This look is one I’ve been wearing a lot recently.
The jumper* is soooo soft and fluffy. Perfect for hangover/lazy/PMS days, where you just want to snuggle and be comfy.
Add some easy-to-walk-in trainers* and a fancy duster coat* over the top and you’re good to go!
I love the colour of this coat. It’s a really bright purpley-blue and provides a perfect bright block-colour effect to keep the whole look fresh and modern.
And it’s an absolute STEAL at just £15!
2. SMART OUTFIT FOR A CREATIVE JOB INTERVIEW
Can you really wear jeans to a job interview? Well I don’t see why not!
Obviously it depends on the job, but if you’re going for a creative position then I think you can definitely pull together a jeans-based outfit that looks smart and professional.
I went for a white Peter-Pan-collar shirt* with the above-mentioned blue duster coat buttoned over the top like a blazer. Then I added patent black loafers* and a faux-snakeskin satchel* for a bit of polish.
The bag has actually become my day-to-day bag and I love it a lot. It’s big enough that I can fit my iPad and notebooks in it, but not big enough that I can keep unholy amounts of rubbish in there anymore!
Finishing touch: a swipe of red lipstick.
3. AFTER WORK DRINKS AND DATE NIGHT OUTFIT
My fave thing about this outfit is that you could totally wear the blouse and jeans to work with some black ballet flats and a blazer, then in the evening swap it for some sexy heels, add a bright lip and BAM.
Date night outfit. Would be great for cocktails with the girls too!
I love the polka-dot blouse* so freaking much. It’s loose and flowy, it doesn’t cling or get static-y and the colour is diviiiine. (You might actually recognise it from that time I got undressed in a park…)
In honour of the flourishing blossoms, I chose to wear it with these pointed coral heels*.
Nothing says Happy Spring quite like pink shoes and pink flowers in the trees!
Which look is your favourite? :)
I think mine is actually the Interview outfit. There’s something about the crisp white shirt, the blue coat and that pop of red that really works for me!
Make sure you pop over to Jasmin’s blog and see what outfits she’s put together.
I took the photographs and I can promise she looks amazing! ♥
