So today I want to talk plain old denim minus any fancy pants prints, you probably already know that I’m slightly denim phobic, seeing as I’m on a good day I’ll just say I have a curvaceous Beyonce type lower half and I have struggled in the past to find jeans that I can honestly say work better than a pair of trousers or a dress, my wardrobe/floor, cough, is over flowing with my alternatives simple jumpsuits, track pants, pj and Capri trousers.
A few summers ago I picked up a pair of skinny boot cuts in the sales that were far too long for me but thought I could take them up. I never got round to it, in the end I decided to experiment with the length rather than never wear them (reality hurts) and the result was a pair of giant turn ups with a very subtle bell bottom shape that were super flattering, balancing out my curvy thighs and hips I wore them all summer with a pair of black Chelsea boots and then forgot all about them when something new and shiny caught my attention.
I was lazily flicking through my latest copy of Grazia when I came across a denim micro trend all the way from Japan, the deluxe bigged up version of denim turn ups, very similar to my humble pair that I lovingly hand crafted in all of five minutes flat, had found its way to the UK.
So deep Japanese inspired turn ups, read originals by My Passport to Style, here I come, the love affair is back on! Tip - if you want to give this micro trend a go, I forgot to mention a good wodge of iron on tape does help stop your diy turn ups from wafting around too much as you strut. I love everything about this laid back Scandi inspired denim look from the asos sale. Do you have a favourite micro trend of the season?
