WARDROBE STAPLE: RIPPED JEANS!

22/04/2015

Evidently, ripped jeans have become very popular this year and have become a staple for many people. After seeing ripped styled skinny jeans while I was out, I decided to buy a few pairs while I was on an exciting shopping spree in London, I knew that they would go so well with many different items, I could picture them with shirts, vests, pretty tops, vest tops, kimonos, etc. They are the kind of clothing item that I would say is perfect for pairing with what ever items you like to wear to express yourself. 

I was always a bit nervous that skinny ripped jeans would look terrible on me and make my knees look extremely knobbly or something, but surprisingly, I actually loved them immediately. I have got to admit that I am guilty of over wearing these jeans, but to my surprise, they actually haven't faded. I know that a lot of people tend to go to TopShop to get good fitting jeans, but personally, I am not the biggest fan of TopShop. Probably due to my shape, their jeans just don't seem to fit me properly, so I tend to stick to Miss Selfridge for most of my jeans. These black skinny ripped jeans were actually £38 which is slightly less than TopShops jeans, and in my opinion, better quality. 

The first style I went for was a black vest top and bright orange shirt. The shirt was from GAP a while back in the sale. It is one of my favourite tops and I definitely feel that it adds colour to the look.

I then chose a few styles based around the shirt element. I chose these two shirts I have that are very different. This is another of my favourite tops, I just love the various colours inside the pattern, and the pattern itself. I also love how the polka dot shirt adds a pattern to the look - it's always good to have a pattern in your look. Patterns always make an outfit look a lot less simple and more stylish. 


The next style I went for was a long kimono with the black vest top. Once again, I love the pattern on this kimono, I think it adds another layer to the outfit. I am definitely going to be wearing this kimono a lot in the summer, it would look perfectly elegant when it flows in the light summer breeze. 


Finally, the last look I went for was a more colourful and summery look. The light weight purple summery vest top was definitely the colour staple in this look. I then added a jacket to each of these looks. The first is quite a tribal looking pattern, which I adore. This jacket is perfect for the winter, but not so much for the summer as it is a very fluffy material. However, on the opposite side, I have an outfit that's more suitable for summer. The jacket is quite a light but sturdy one, with pink thread joint into the design. Both of these look perfect with the black skinny ripped jeans.


Orange shirt: GAP sale £12
 Polka dot shirt: Select sale £5 
Blue patterned shirt: NewLook £20
Kimono: Matalan £10
Purple vest top: Matalan sale £1.50
Black tribal patterned jacket: Urban Outfitters sale £30
Pink/grey jacket: Miss Selfridge £25(?)

Just to let you know before hand, I will be reducing the amount I post to once a week as this Monday coming. I have a lot of exams ahead of me and I would like to be able to put my full attention into achieving my personal best. I will also be very inactive and so may not answer all comments, please be patient with me. I will be back blogging two days a week on the week beginning the 22nd of June. Thank you!
