CHEERS TO THE BEST JEANS I’VE EVER WORN!
I could pretty much call these jeans my Best Friend. During my architecture degree, I used to go into the city centre of Oxford and do a little shop now and then – a little much-needed retail therapy when I was stuck in the studio for countless hours! I remember being out early one morning, I wanted to check out the recently opened Topshop, and they happened to begin a sale that day ..a huge sale rack all to myself, untouched by the public, just like a dream. I couldn’t believe my eyes, I mean, usually when I find nice pieces in a sale they are never in my size not even the ‘it’s a bit bigger than I’d want, but I can get away with that!’ kind. But holy moly this very morning was MY morning – a cool pair of two-tone jeans, in my exact waist size and length, and wait for it.. marked from forty pounds to only ten pounds?! waaaah.
Sometimes you just get lucky, huh? I mean okay, maybe this is no big deal, a pair of jeans.. but jeans are that staple item, almost like a necessity in the wardrobe – we all own at least one pair (even if you don’t wear jeans anymore, I know they’re in there somewhere! 😉 ). You can wear them to tone-down a formal outfit, you can wear them with heels by night to liven up a casual day outfit.
So why do I think these are the best pair of jeans I’ve ever laid eyes on? First of all, let’s just discuss Topshop Jamie jeans – they are know to be über soft. They’re definitely made of denim, but these jeans make me feel like I’m wearing leggings – I think you can even tell from the photos, they’re the stretchy kind of denim, which makes them perfectly comfortable and flexible. I also love that the double tone adds some kind of dimension to a simple outfit. I mean, imagine this outfit with a simple white tee instead of this jumper, it’d still be cool just because of that little detailing on the jeans! They’re pretty fun to wear. I believe they are no longer around, but I’ve found you some similar jeans, and some with a variation of the two tone (like these cool patchwork style ones). If you wear jeans a lot and haven’t tried the two-tone style, I’d definitely recommend them to liven up the ‘basics’ section of your wardrobe!
