A great pair of jeans goes a long way… Of late (when I say late I actually mean a few years) I have found myself only wearing high-waisted jeans. Reason number one, they make me look a little taller! Being short is hard yo ðŸ˜‰
I do believe there are a few rules when searching for “the one”. Here’s how to find the perfect pair of jeans.
Focus on fit and not on the label. In this instance size doesn’t matter. Different cuts fit different bodies, well, differently. A bootleg may be different to a skinny jean so don’t worry too much if it’s a size bigger or (yay!) smaller.
Darker washes are generally more flattering but distressed jeans which have been “weathered” in all the right places can also accentuate and hide those lady lumps that we all love to hate. Another reason why I love high waisted jeans! I’ve never had the flattest stomach but a great pair of high-waisted jeans like these from TALLY WEiJL sucks it all in ðŸ˜‰
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. It can be a pain sometimes, yes, but shopping for jeans is a marathon and not a sprint! If you’d like to make your life easier, however, I can highly recommend heading to TALLY WEiJL in Mall of Africa and Mall of the South. Their denim selection is VAST and VARIED!
Lastly, when it comes to jeans, it’s also simply about wearing them right and feeling comfortable. Nothing looks better than confidence. I styled this look with one of my favourite must-haves: a sleeveless duster coat and simple high-necked cropped jumper.
I’m also in LUST with this metallic Tally body bag which elevates the casual cool look ever so slightly. Hope you enjoy it!
I must also send a shoutout to the Kardashians for bringing the braid back in a big way. This is my favourite way to wear my hair at the moment. Especially with a little bit of regrowth!
