The second installment of our #MyDenim series, where we’re celebrating the virtues of our favourite everyday fabric, features Emma Hill. The majority of Emma’s outfits revolve around denim, so we knew her ensembles were going to reflect her chic-but-achievable style.
Straight leg jeans have made a fashionable comeback over recent months. As much as skinnies will forever hold a place in our hearts (and of course, wardrobes), a straight leg injects a freshness that we can’t get enough of right now. Emma chooses to champion this style for off-duty occasions; “I always reach for my straight leg jeans at the weekend”, and contrasts an everyday mid-blue rinse against a stone mac and black tee. A belt gives Emma’s outfit a more considered feel too.
If anyone’s worried about how to elevate jeans for the evening, you’ve come to the right place. Emma’s style is inherently polished so take note and opt for darker colours. She says; “These dark rinse figure hugging skinny jeans are perfect for date night, and I’ve kept the look simple but chic with a basic black t-shirt, black blazer and some statement ankle boots and gold jewellery.” Darker hues are also very slimming, so if that’s your objective – we can wholly recommend these 360 jeans. Perfect for those desk-to-dancefloor nights, their groundbreaking denim technology enables four-way stretch and 360 degree movement.
When it comes to making jeans work for work, all-black-everything is always a good idea. As expertly demonstrated here, Emma’s 9-5 look oozes sophistication – she says; “I’ve opted for a pair of jet back skinny jeans and I’ve paired them with a polo neck, blazer and court shoes keeping the look sleek and sophisticated for a work environment.” The high rise on these Lift, Slim and Shape skinny jeans makes them ideal for tucking a blouse into and help to create sculpted silhouette.
