My Style: Stripes & Tiny Tim


My outfits are normally pretty safe, I like jeans, jumpers, ankle boots, the occasional flared skirt, leather pencil skirt, and dress, as well as statement jewellery and a great handbag – so I never thought that I would buy or wear stripy jeans!!!

I bought these beauties at the Donna Ida pop-up at Cheshire Oaks, not only were they a bargain down from £150 to £25, but Donna herself convinced me to try them on and to be honest who am I to argue with the Queen of Denim.

When I saw them I loved them, the mint colour is just amazing, but I instantly thought I could not only pull them off but my chunky thighs would look even bigger – what surprised me the most is how they are actually flattering and slimming.

To tone down the stripes and to make it more me I decided to pair them with lots of black – a chunky jumper, cut-out boots and my new Anya Hindmarch ‘Tiny Tim’ handbag, which granted doesn’t hold a lot but is oh so pretty.

Considering I was pretty nervous about rocking these jeans once on I felt amazing and I think I pulled them off by keeping the styling simple. I can’t wait for summery weather as they would look great with a black tee and strappy black heels.

How would you style these stripped beauties?
