Spotted: New Look Denim

One of the things I need this season is a pair of new jeans, not cutting edge fashion, but necessary none the less. The thing is, I’m on a budget right now and I have precisely zero experience in shopping for jeans on the high street. Usually I buy ‘designer’ in the sale and spend maybe £50-100 – a fact that has long been the subject of amusement amongst my friends as I’ll easily spend more on a dress thats worn only a few times, yet if I consider cost-per-wear, they must be the most hardworking item in my wardrobe. That not withstanding, I’m looking after the pennies so the pounds can look after themselves and that means well priced jeans.

New Look are relaunching their denim collection (check out the dungarees for serious fashion points this season or the denim shirts for a bit of denim on denim action.) As a result, I thought I’d look them up and select a few of my picks for the coming season. Fortunately for me, the majority are skinny cuts as I’m thinking ahead to wear with ankle boots this winter, but I see they have kept a flattering bootcut for curvy silhouettes.

  1. I didn’t quite get around to trying the coated jean last season but at this price (£23) it’s a trend that’s worth a try.
  2. This season, lengths are cropped, including tops so think about a high waist to rock a shorter length knit this season.
  3. All summer I’ve loved a turn up and I’ve no intention of giving up on them now so this distressed turned up skinny will be perfect for the weekend with converse or distressed boots, and a slouchy top.
  4. If you prefer a bootcut, I love this dark blue vintage wash pair with a wide belt.

Have you tried New Look jeans? Are you looking for a new pair this season?

Friday Frock O’clock

After featuring this dress, 2 weeks ago, I have seen striped dresses everywhere and ended up picking one up in Marks and Spencers, but unfortunately can’t find it online to share today. Always a spring time staple, it also happens to be bang on the monochrome trend right now, so if you’re looking to invest in something that will go the fashion mile this season but stay in your wardrobe much longer, it’s a no-brainer. Here are 6 striped monochrome dresses (I deliberately left out spring time navy and white combos to stay within the monochrome trend,) for different body shapes and wearability, all of which are under £50.

  1. Skater stripe dress, Next £50
  2. Monochrome Midi dress £14.99 New Look
  3. H&M £19.99
  4. Wide stripe £39.99
  5. Combination stripe dress £35.99
  6. Block bottom black dress £35.99, all Zara.

Now all you guys have to do is pick a favourite. Answers in the comments box please!
