How to wear pale denim skinny jeans

Skinny jeans can be daunting, throw in the bleached effect and you have a girls worst nightmare. If you want to wear this seasons hottest trend then read on.

Having just taken the plunge and bought a pair of super skinny bleached denim jeans I am super chuffed until I got home and contemplated what exactly I am supposed to wear with them without looking like a throwback to the eighties.

If you are in the same predicament as me then I suggest heading to Topshop who have majorly bought into the bleached denim look.

My first recommendation for bleached denim is to try wear a top that is slightly paler than the denim- this is pretty difficult given that bleached denim is so pale but wearing a nice white top will detract attention from your bottom upwards, secondly if like me you are slightly conscience of your bum and hips then wear a long top that sits past your hips to hide them a bit, if your struggling to find a top long enough look in the tall sections as they stock tops in a longer length.

I think the best way to be wearing these jeans will be with either of two trends this season; the floral trend and the nautical trend. If you opt for the floral look; try to mix small flowery prints with edgy accessories; Topshop have very good chiffon blouses and bustier’s which when matched with a pair of super skinny jeans and skyscraper black heels and chunky gold jewellery will create a very festival rock chick look.

If you choose for the nautical trend then the safest bet is to invest in a blazer, either black or navy, although black with probably have more longevity, choose a simple white vest and chunky wedges; New Look have very good striped sailor style ones in this season. For accessories I think that you should buy into the cheap and cheerful nautical inspired jewellery seen on the high street for such a season led trend it is best to avoid spending so much money and going to somewhere like Primark; however if you prefer the more expensive then Urban Outfitters do brilliant theatrical jewellery. For the nautical look I would keep the bag simple, perhaps a structure leather bag in black or brown. If you are feeling very adventurous buy a straw fedora hat and wear with attitude.
