How to update a simple pair of jeans

Sometimes we can get into the habit of styling our basics such as a pair of jeans in the same way. Maybe we wear them with the same sweater or shirt. So today I thought that I would show you how to update a simple pair of jeans. Knitted gilets and waistcoats are very fashionable at the moment. They can have a connotation of school uniforms and maybe an item of clothing that your grandfather wore. However the updated versions that are currently in the shops have a distinctively modern feel.

The knitted gilet/vest I am wearing is in boucle wool from Cos. I am currently wearing it under a coat or jacket however as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer I look forward to wearing it on its own. I have teamed it with the feminine pink blouse that I recently bought in the Meandem sale. I have worn it quite a few times already under sweaters and cardigans. I think it adds a feminine touch to the otherwise masculine outfit.

You can see a different way I have styled this knitted vest here.

A knitted vest is also an excellent way to add an extra layer of warmth. Boden has an excellent collection.

    Your post inspired me to cut the hem off my wide leg jeans that are several years old and had not gotten much wear. They hang much better now!! Will be fun to experiment on top with them now they have a new life. Also I have seen lots of shirt with short sleeve sweater combinations on pbs series All things great and small. A classic look for sure. Cheers!
