I recently caved and bought the January 2015 Vogue almost exclusively to see Kendall Jenner’s solo editorial. The spread left me super impressed at how eloquent of a model Kendall is becoming, but even more impressive were a pair of two toned, patchwork jeans featured ♥ . Ever since, my fascination with blue jeans has been completelyyy renewed, making my usual black, Topshop skinnies feel obsolete by comparison.
Even more excitingly, I feel like this current influx of denim is part of a greater 70s revival trend. Valentino’s definitely been playing with the look for a couple seasons now (check some Pre-Fall 15 pics below…), the Alexa Chung x AG collaboration plays in perfectly, and of course, Gucci’s SS15 bled a more bohemian, 70s cool.
While I can appreciate a great collection or editorial with the best of them, my style is still pretty comfort-centric, so my focus has really been on finding pieces that combine quality and fit with more unique cuts, then playing with different tones of blue in my outfits.
Just wanna give a quick shoutout to my local Holt Renfrew for the triple markdowns – I managed to snag some $700+ Stella McCartney jeans for $140, and a Rag & Bone vest for around $50. Still don’t think I’m prepared to wear them together, but the jeans look so sick with a pale denim shirt and delicate jewellery, and the vest adds just the right amount of trucker-chic over a sweatshirt (it’s cooler than it sounds, I promise…).
Dressing like a dude is super fun… 10/10
