Following my previous post on “How to wear jeans that flatter” I thought that I would be brave and try a pair of wide-leg jeans. I took them with me to Grimaud so that I could experiment with different ways to style them. Instead of driving as we usually do we decided to fly as we are only staying here for two weeks. It seemed really strange to be in an aeroplane again after about three years. Anyway, back to the jeans I found them very comfortable to travel in. I chose a light pink as they will team well with my purple, whites and navies.
My jeans are from Uniqlo (US link). They are made from a thick cotton material so hang well. They do come up quite large. I ordered my usual size and found the waist a little big so you might like to size down. There is a size calculator on the Uniqlo site which I find quite accurate.
Above I have teamed my jeans with a purple long-sleeve tee from Cos. The purple does not seem to be in stock any more however if you are after a neutral colour I find their quality very good. Beneton also has a good selection of cotton tees in a variety of colours.
I absolutely love the new trainers that I am wearing. They are very comfortable and such fun. They are New Balance. Available here.
My jeans are actually pale pink. They look slightly purple in the photo above due to the light. The travel purse you can see slung around my body is extremely useful. I can hold my sunglasses, small purse and travel documents. Similar here and here. Etsy (US link) has a wide variety in lovely bright colours.
If it gets a bit chilly in the evening I have been wearing my navy bomber jacket originally from Arket a few years ago. Similar here.
My pink fedora hat is one of my favourites. Originally from St.Tropez market however I found some very similar in a variety of colours on Etsy.
In the photos above and below I have swapped my navy jacket for my purple cashmere cardigan. Sadly sold out. I have tried to find similar ones below.
Some of you may think that these wide-leg jeans may not be the most flattering however I have come to the conclusion that I have reached an age where I want to wear clothes that I feel comfortable wearing and that I love.
