So this post is a tad overdue, I do apologise. I've been really focusing the last few weeks on developing FKM as a business and have been hard at work with my business and marketing plans. It's been pretty tiring and exciting all at once! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would have my own business and since I've been putting everything from my studies to use, it's really starting to flourish! I sometimes take a step back and try to look at how far I've come and I surprise myself. Not saying that I didn't think I could do it, I knew I could. But you sometimes have your doubts, especially when you work full time and have a fashion blog to run. And not to mention those assholes that thrive on telling you you're going to fail.
Well. Fail I have not. And will not.
This post came to be after I sold a pair of boyfriend jeans to one of my FKM buyers in an attempt to make me want to get back into my skinnies. But as soon as they were gone, I missed them!
There is something pretty chic about a chick in oversized, slouchy jeans. Especially when they're worn the right way.
As a stylist, I find the boyfriend jean to be perfect for every figure, and a very comfy change from the worn out skinny and bootleg jeans. In fact I took my last client shopping for some new gear and ended up making her buy a pair of mens slouchy jeans to jazz up her wardrobe. She looked AMAZING!
How to style:
Basically since your really hammering the slouch factor with this piece, the rest of you needs to be quite fitted, girly or at least balanced out. Since I'm not a fan of tight fitting, I chose my fave little strappy black low back top ( I love low back, so much hotter than showing boob all the time. Another tired trend) and my Tony Bianco heels. There is a double amount of slouch in my outfit but I counteracted the effect by lengthening my legs with heels and showing a little more skin up top.
Basically, to pull the look off successfully, you simply need to keep balance in mind. And that isn't that hard.
My last piece of advice: Stop looking at women's jeans and go find a small pair of mens, the fit is so much better and you'll find that if you have a muffin top problem with jeans generally, you won't with a men's pair.
I inherited my pair of Wranglers from one of the dudes my boy works with and I love them so much! They're so versatile...and comfy.
