The Embroidered Jeans Re-Visited

If there is one trend I’m glad to see sticking around for another season it’s the one for all things embroidered. I first fell for it early in the Summer when I caved in and bought my first pair of mom jeans (see blog post here). At the time I thought they were strictly a warm weather thing, not quite sure how to style them for colder times but with a little bit of trial and a lot of error I finally settled on a look I liked. Since then I’ve become a bit of a magpie for embroidered items and I predict a few more pieces finding their way in to my possession over the coming months.

Top: Topshop (similar) | Jeans: Glamorous (darker version only £15!) | Boots: River Island (available still on Zalando)

Although this is quite a simple outfit it takes me so far out of my comfort zone it may as well reside on another planet. Wearing fitted tops with jeans is a style barrier of mine but I felt surprisingly at ease in this combination once I got used to it. The attention deflecting boots probably played some part in that- there is something so spirit lifting about popping on a pair of jazzy ankle boots!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for another week. I had such a brilliant week last week that I’m not sure this one can compare but far be it from me to write it off before it begins, I’m open to whatever it wants to throw my way.

What trends are you glad to see sticking around? How would you style these jeans?

  1. I also may be well outside my comfort zone next month!

    My office is doing a dress down day for Comic Relief. We normally have such a strict black/white corporate dress code so it came as a complete surprise to be told that we have to wear jeans and a tee-shirt. As I have never worn jeans in my life and wouldn’t feel comfy or look right in them you can see the problem!

    I might see if I can find a cheap loose fitting pair in a charity shop – I don’t think I would get away with taking the day off!

  2. I’d wear these jeans with a crisp white shirt. I love your boots! I have a pair of rose gold metallic brogues and they do have the power to transform a simple outfit.
    Hope you’re having a good week x

  3. Oh I love this look Laura! I really like embroidered jeans, I just think they look so cool and I love the detailing on them, so pretty and they look great on you. I’m starting to push myself to try new clothes too as I feel like I’ve gotten into a rut with how I dress, so posts like these are always really inspiring to see how you style these as well. The boots are so cool too! – Tasha
