Welcome back to the 2nd week of my staple styling series!

Today, I have to share with you guys my love for the straight leg jeans!  

So you may have already witnessed by absolute adoration for these particular pair of straight leg jeans from Topshop, but if you didn’t, here it is: I absolutely bloody love them!!

They have been one of my favourite pairs to style during autumn winter, and even coming into spring I’m still reaching for them! Like any pair of jeans they are versatile and so easy to style, but this new straight-leg silhouette is such a retro twist and I definitely think this is one jean shape that will remain trendy for a while. Now I know there are several straight leg jeans available from different retailers, but my favourite is definitely this one from Topshop. It offers the best combination of fit and elasticity, and additionally, although I bought them from the “regular” line instead of “petite”, it still fits my petite frame so well! (IMO, but obviously tell me if you think otherwise!)

In this outfit I’ve styled it with a very simple black T-shirt and finished the look of with a varsity style bomber jacket from Cotton on. The Mickey Mouse print on the Jacket makes the look playful and fun, whilst the black mules gives this casual-sporty look an updated girly feel. I felt like the Chanel WOC was the perfect addition to this because it gave it just that bit of luxe to a an otherwise casual outfit.

How I Style: Straight leg jeans

chanel_square_mini_straightleg-40So I never thought I would be a fan of straight leg jeans… But the obsession is real guys! This actually isn’t my favourite pair, but it’s still amazing nonetheless. Probably the closest I could get to the vintage Levis 501, and so hard to believe they were from ASOS! I’ve folded the hem to make them more suitable for my petite frame, but I actually also really like the effect. I’m thinking about fraying the hem, but then decided against it because the fold-up hem has also been trending lately! They’re an authentic vintage style in that they have a light acid wash to them, and made of that thick stiff denim. If I hadn’t bought it myself, I woulds struggle to believe that they’re truly not vintage! But in saying that, they aren’t as comfortable as the topshop straight-leg jeans I hauled in my previous youtube video, but if you’re looking for a pair  thats easily accessible, check them out on ASOS!
