What I wore: the basics ft DressKode jeans*

Jeans – c/o Dress Kode* | Jumper – Forever 21 | Hat – Primark | Boots – Forever 21

As I opened my pretty pink package when I collected it from the sorting office (my excuse for the late post, I’m sorry) I was in for a pleasant surprise. DressKode kindly sent me these Black High Waisted Button Jeans* but they weren’t just your normal pair of skinnies, they came with a twist. I’ve never seen jeans like these before, with the unique corset style criss cross detail on the back but I am so in love with them. They fit like a dream, they’re so comfortable (despite how long the trail of buttons are), they’re so versatile and can be styled up or down.

For me, I decided to style these lovely jeans in a basic manner. A fine knit jumper, a fedora and my beloved ankle boots and I was good to go. I do have a love/hate relationship with jeans and in honesty, I don’t own many pairs nor do I wear them often. The main reason for this is my odd body proportion (I’m sure you know what I mean seen as I speak about this issue whenever I do find a pair of trousers that fit in all directions and it feels like Christmas has come early). High waisted jeans are my favourite kind as they can be worn with a crop top or just with a jumper slouched over the top. I can’t say I’ve had much experience with super high waisted jeans that reach the middle, they’re absolutely fine when you haven’t had much to eat but after too much pizza and custard cream snacking (which I’m often known guilty for) I think squeezing into these and fastening them right to the top may prove a struggle. None the less, they’re very flattering on my figure (which is the bottom heavy kind) and I do think they’d be suitable for all body types. A massive bonus being the extra tightness acting as a suction for the unwanted flabby bits. These jeans maintain a posture and make my legs look longer they are – something I’ll always leap and praise for!
