There’s no doubt you’ve seen me wear longer length jeans continuously on the gram, that’s because they’ve become my absolute go to, whether it be with blazers and coats, or knitwear and shirts.
It’s bizarre how a length of a piece can instantly change the style it gives, and puddle length jeans have been that wardrobe classic with a fresh street chic twist, bringing optimum effortless-ness just by being slightly longer on the leg – making it so easy for us to put simple looks together but looking as if ample of thought has gone in!
“A little tip, go for wide leg jeans and opt for the longest length available for your particular height and they’ll work just perfect as the puddle style ”
Having around 2-3 inches of extra denim folding and pooling over your feet gives just the most perfect effortless feel to the simplest of outfits. And not to mention, totally elongating the legs! I’ve been loving pairing my jeans with a tapered style shoe to really silhouetting the legs – a pointy flat pair are a must or even a square toe that’s slightly tapered to the toe.
They’re a fab pair to also whip out for an evening look, with the longer length you can pair up with those heels and glam up the jeans with your favourite evening pieces on top, so a really easy and versatile pair that will see you through the year!
A little tip, go for wide leg jeans and opt for the longest length available for your particular height and they’ll work just perfect as the ‘puddle’ style. I’ve linked the blue wide leg jeans from Marks and Spencer below which I style often on Instagram and that’s how I got the puddle effect on that particular pair – always questions on this pair whenever they make an appearance on the gram.
It’s also worth giving this length style a try with trousers too – it’s something I always look for in trousers as it instantly dresses them down slightly, making them uber cool and sophisticated for day and night.
I’d love to know how your styling yours if you have a pair, or if you’ve been eye-ing them up and pondering on adding to your wardrobe!
