STYLE HACK | FRINGE JEANS (DIY)

The truth is, just as you think you have all jean shapes covered, a new kid comes on the block.....

Whilst I'm all in favour of of a rotational capsule wardrobe, sometimes flipping the style coin throws something fresh into the equation.

For the denim obsessed (basically my uniform), the new season is awash with patched, frayed and fringed jeans, and I don't mind admitting that I've been mentally tormenting myself over these 3 x 1 crop fringe jeans. But at over £200, I'm in no doubt that this is not strictly an investment buy.

All that said, cue a rainy afternoon, old jeans, scissors, a stitch unpicker, and Erica from Honestly WTF tutorial post, and I'm now feeling seriously smug, that I have delicately hacked my hems into almost Instagram worthy denim threads.

Pairing these blue fringed beauties with the essential pieces of kit....
a billowy white shirt, slouchily tucked in, or an oversized knotted tee, will seal this DIY deal.

6 FIX | WEEKDAY WEEKEND






1: Dress £55 Weekday | 2: Sunglasses £195 Karen Walker |
 3: Lipstick Perricone MD | 4: Bucket Bag £935 Proenza Schouler |
 5: Boots £39.99 Public Desire | 6: Perfume £125 Heeley Parfums...  


---------------------


The key to fine tuning your wardrobe lies in finding relaxed, fail safe pieces that will breathe new life into your closet.

Weekday is the cool Scandi brand whose uncomplicated signature style is infused with chic, pared back minimalism, looks significantly more expensive than it's price tag, and does what it says on the tin.

With more than a whiff of spring in the air, transition the look into the new season with simple white kicks, I'm currently coveting these, though it does involve a deep and meaningful with my conscience/bank balance.

 The truth is, simplistic elevated essentials, nail low maintenance dressing, making this little dress a winner on so many levels.....

Just how I like it!

Six pieces to freshen up your wardrobe.

CELINE DREAM | SPLURGE OR STEAL?


SPLURGE.....

Soft Slipper in Striped Knit - CĂ©line

SOFT SLIPPER IN STRIPE KNIT £560


OR STEAL?

Braided shoes | MANGO

WOVEN BRAIDED SHOES £59.99


On examining the evidence, these Mango sandals pay more than a little homage to Celine.

 To avoid any self induced anxiety attacks (my overspent budget won't allow a splurge) I'm trying to keep my feet 'excuse the pun' firmly on the ground. 

All that said, when the tribute act looks as good as this, I can pretty much guarantee, they are more than a considered purchase right now.
