How many pairs of cream jeans are too many? For me, cream jeans are the equivalent of people having different styles of their everyday blue denim. I’m not a huge wearer of blue denim, for my particular style I just don’t find them easy to style with pieces in my wardrobe. Having quiet a neutral palette, cream denim just seems to go so easily with everything, and always gives a more chic look to my outfits, where as blue denim gives a more casual feel. The only other denim apart from cream I tend to wear is black, again keeping within the neutral spectrum.
My husband saw all the cream denim lined up to shoot for this post and instantly questioned me, ‘do you really need so many of the same colour jeans?’ And obviously I said ‘yes!’ There are so many different cuts and shapes that even though they’re the same colour they give a completely different style and look to an outfit depending on the fit. So I thought I would document my collection of them to help anyone who may want some ideas for shapes and styles for their denim collection whether it be blue denim, black or whichever colour takes your fancy!
Starting with the tapered; a more laid back fit with a little slouch but still gives some shape. I find I wear this cut when I want to be comfortable with a more daytime effortless style, paired with airy tops, blouses and t-shirts. They’re perfect for daytime brunching too with the baggier fit; you can enjoy delish food without having to worry about being corseted into your jeans. I love turning up the bottoms slightly to add to the casual feel too, in all a perfect pair for spring summer days when it’s warmer and you just want feel easy breezy.
Probably the most versatile shape out of them all, with a straighter leg and with them finishing at the ankle, their perfect for pairing any type of piece on top and giving a really flattering shape for a pretty shoe or even some cool sandals. I feel like this shape can be perfect for when you want a little more of a formal but not formal look too, with a shirt tucked in and some pointy kitten heels and a cute bag to add to it and your ready for daytime meetings and work. Again a more comfy fit but giving the perfect shape at the same time, the best of both worlds!
One of my personal favourites! In general I find culottes really chic & sophisticated, so having a pair in denim is a staple for my wardrobe. Super easy to style, and again really comfy. I like to pair this wider leg shape with something less fussy on top so that jean shape does all the talking, or something really simple but light and airy to contrast the shape. Definitely the pair ill be sporting the most of this summer, imagine them with some espadrilles tied up – such a cute look!
This is my more dressier/evening jean. Like styled here, with some sassy heels and a silky blouse or shirt is perfect for evening outings. They are the ones were your going to feel sucked in and not the most easy breezy. You wouldn’t see me sporting these for a whole day look, so definitely the pair on the rail that are picked out when I want to feel more dressed for something special for a few hours, but I have to admit, they are a gorgeous fit and instantly look super chic.
The jean that’s been asked about the most. Another favourite of mine, super baggy, super easy, super breezy and chic all in one – for me that’s a dream jean! The amount of people that have asked for these over on instagram – let me tell you, I was up day and night myself on Zara refreshing the product page to get my size in stock, and I’m so so proud of myself for managing to add to basket at the right moment haha! The whole darted look that’s out at the moment is such a perfect shape, whether its trousers, shorts or jeans. The darted style makes them look super effortless, sophisticated and comfy all at the same time, so you just can’t go wrong in my opinion. Dress them up, dress them down, they’ll look just as good in any way!
With these 5 cuts I feel like I’m covered for any type of jean combo. If there’s any of these that are your favourite then let me know which one! These styles can be applied to any kind of colour that’s more your style, for me, it’s all about the cut that caters to a specific look you want to achieve, rather than focusing just on colours, so I hope this might help any of you that want to add some different styles of cuts to your denim-drobe!
