NEW IN: LEOPARD AND FUR

20140422-014049.jpg

Okay so ‘leopard and fur’ might be a tad misleading. When I hear those two scary-sounding adjectives I think of Teresa Guidice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But of course I have impeccable taste and wouldn’t be seen dead in anything less than covetable… ahem.
So anyway, my jeans are from H&M, and the furry trainers are from
Topshop. I jumped on the slip-on sneaker bandwagon, finally, after deciding I have no comfortable shoes which are attractive enough to be seen out of the house with. even though I have three pairs of Converse and multiple other flats that are stylish and comfortable, but they’re not new so they don’t count okay?
Word to the wise, the jeans come up tiny so be warned that you will need to get them in a size or two bigger than you usually would be. Only a 4 year-old would get their arse into a UK 6 in those.

PRINTED JEANS MANIA!

Printed jeans have become such a huge deal over the past few seasons and right now the trend is at it’s peak. The thing about jeans in general is that they are such a staple in (almost) anyone’s wardrobe (Daphne Guinness aside) and oh-so easily accessible. As for printed jeans, both the high street and high end market have some amazing versions, most of which will suit anyone with an ounce of flair. My own collection of printed jeans is in itself, extensive, and they’re always great conversation starters from people who love them, people who hate them and people who “don’t get” them. I for one love them, and for what my opinion is worth, feel that printed jeans will always be fab. Rest assured, I’ll be rocking printed skinnies when I’m in my 60s.

I tried to find my favourite 10 pairs of printed jeans on the internet and finally found them, after much umming and erring over deciding which ones to include (as there are easily about 76 pairs I could’ve chosen). I’ll put links in the captions so you can go ahead and purchase them too!

So there is my top 10 favourite printed jeans! I apologize that they’re all in a big looooooooong column, WordPress was playing silly beggars with me. The thrill about printed jeans is that they can be dressed up with heels and a blazer and tons of jewelery, dressed down in the winter with biker boots, thick socks and a scarf or thrown on in the summer with the cuffs rolled up and a pair of Havaianas.

Let me know where you stand on printed jeans! Which ones are your favourites?
