As a part of the new year, I have decided to start a new series on my blog featuring something near and dear to my heart: denim! I have a handy collection of trousers, but I always have more jeans than any other single item in my closet. I love hunting for new and vintage styles, and I am always looking for the most flattering cut for my body type. Denim is a staple in my day-to-day dressing (just take a look at my Instagram!) so I thought it would be appropriate for me to start a spotlight series and show some appreciation for one brand or cut at a time.
These jeans caught my eye several months ago, due to the flattering convex silhouette and unique, extra-high rise. If you have followed my 2017 posts, I had a genuine affair with wide-leg styles, and I suppose I need to admit that I have not fallen out of love with them. Maison Margiela tends to design splendidly uncommon cuts in their denim-ware, but this pair has found a nice middle ground of trendy, but also wearable. The extra-high waist allows for a very flattering fit, and this pair is ultra-soft and relaxing, with more than average material over the hips all the way down to the tapered hem. This wash features slight whiskering and a touch of faded knees, giving them a worn-in and friendly appeal. I absolutely adore this mix of over-the-top but still familiar styling and have happily worn these jeans with everything from sweaters to blouses.
Just to show you how often I have worn this pair, you might remember this particular item from my New Year post earlier this month, so they certainly deserve to kick-off this new series. For my outfit, I paired these jeans with a classic white button-up from Scotch & Soda, cute and truly-round shades from Dolce & Gabbana, and finished off with my trusty nude heels. Thus far, I have styled these jeans with pale, light-colored items to compliment the fading on the front, but I am positive that I will find others pieces to team these jeans within no time.
Now your turn: Let me know, what denim pieces have you picked up recently? What brand do you think has the highest quality for your dollar? and, who is your go-to brand for new denim styles?
