Frayed Hemlines

Black denim with an oversized blazer. The statement pieces that should be in everyones closet. Whilst planning my Autumnal wardrobe I am challenging myself to “How many different ways can I style a blazer?” If you have read my previous posts, you’d know that in the last couple of months I have been building my blazer section to my wardrobe quite nicely. You can never have enough, and these are the reasons why:

1. They are the great contrast against denim. Business up top, party down low. You get the gist.

2. It’s not just for Autumn. Yes, I wore a blazer in 40 degree Perth heat this Christmas. It’s also a great piece to layer in Winter under a wool coat. I can’t wait for for this!

3. Instantly smartens up a look. If you are feeling like your outfit is a little casual for a certain occasion the blazer might be the answer.

Today’s post isn’t all about the blazer. It’s actually about my haul from LA last month and how I’m reassessing my need for denim in my wardrobe. Day to day, I like wearing jeans when I’m not in tailoring so why not share these looks with you! I have been on the hunt for frayed jeans for some time and being a Northern Hemisphere gal with a love for Zara, it only seemed right to raid the winter sale rail given these pieces will be coming to Australia full priced any day soon! That’s the best part of shopping overseas in sale time. Would you believe me if I told you I scored these jeans for just $12? You can’t even get brunch for that in Sydney so I was pretty chuffed! Styled with a good jean belt and a Calvin tee, this is the look I can rock for my Mon-Fri job. Still keeping smart with a good pair of loafers and the trusty jacket, it’s a good balance of casual and tailored.
