During my teenage years, I lived in jeans – insanely wide, baggy jeans. When I started to change my style, the jeans I found on the high street were just a big no; they cut into my hips, they fitted my bum but not my waist, they clung in weird places and they just weren’t comfortable. My days of wearing jeans were over…or so I thought.
In this series of posts, I’ll be sharing brands and styles of jeans that work for me. This week, the spotlight is on Collectif.
I’ve tried on a few types of jeans from Collectif but my favourite style by far is the ‘Siobhan’ jeans. The high-waisted, wide-leg shape of these jeans work perfectly on my shape.
As described by Collectif,
Wondering what to wear with your daytime 50s tops and cardigans? Look no further- the Siobhan Jeans are here!
The perfect set of wide leg high waisted jeans, the Siobhans feature a side zip with a button to secure at your waist, as well as enough length in the leg to allow for a bit of a turn up. Made in high quality stretch denim that will cling to your curves and cinch in your waist.
You can grab these jeans in black or blue denim – I have two black and one blue pair already. As well as fitting me like a dream, these jeans are incredibly comfortable and easy to move about in. At least once a week, I wear these to school as they are smart but durable.
For this post, I went for a bit of a Teddy girl look which I just love! My jacket is also by Collectif (available in check or plain navy). I added my Doc Martens to finish off the outfit.
You can wear whatever you like with high-waisted jeans, however I do love wearing shorter length tops with them – this one is from Tatyana (currently sold out). Cropped jumpers or cardigans would also look good with these jeans.
I tried to get my hair into a slight page-boy style and added a new shade of lipstick.
Here are some examples of how I’ve styled these jeans for work and play.
