I was recently contacted by River Island to see if I could style one pair of their jeans in three ways and being the queen of jeans, how could I say no! I decided to up the challenge and style the jeans for three different occasions; casual, work and evening.
For this styling challenge, I chose the Lori high waisted skinny jeans which are a washed black with a cropped fit and high waist to give more petite girls like me a chance to look taller and the denim is really soft so its easy to move around in them. I’ve also kept my bag and shoes the same because nothing beats patent loafers and a slouchy suede number (thats under £40, by the way..). Everything shown in this post cost under £260 combined so its an affordable way to make three outfits easily!
This outfit is much more smart casual, whether its for heading to work or anywhere that needs a little more dressiness (yep, its a thing). Oversized blouses are a new alternative to the button down shirt and smarten up any jeans, I’m a sucker for white because its so classic but this blouse also comes in chambray and khaki.
I added the neck tie to make the basic neckline more interesting, and its a trend that seems to be everywhere right now. It brings the outfit together a little because the patent loafers are a harsh comparison to the washed look denim.
