HOW TO STYLE VINTAGE JEANS FOR EARLY AUTUMN?
I don't wear jeans that often, but when I do, I make sure I wear a pair that makes me feel like a rock star. I'm of an opinion that relying too much on jeans can make our style a bit predictive and dull. That being said, jeans are definitely classic for a reason and I love wearing them (just not on every day basis). This outfit is pretty simple, but that's the beauty of jeans. Sometimes all you need is the right pair of jeans and you're ready to take on the world...and what is better than a pair of vintage jeans? There is definitely a soft spot in my heart for vintage pieces. Take a look here to see some of my favourite pairs of vintage jeans. In fact, when I choose jeans I often choose a vintage pair.
THE STORY OF AN OUTFIT
I actually made this choker necklace myself. Fun fact: it glows in the dark. I made it many years ago when I was really into making necklaces. These days I only make them occasionally, but I haven't given up necklace making completely and I hope I never will.
This black bodysuit is such a staple in my wardrobe. I don't remember where I bought it or how old it is, but I'm sure it is at least a few years old.
I've always loved clothing items that have an interesting story to tell. Take these jeans for example. I got them from my sister in law who in turn got them from a relative of hers that bought them something like thirty years ago. I have a few more pairs of jeans from the same source. Obviously me and the lady that used to own them have exactly the same figure for these jeans fit me like a glove. I sometimes struggle with finding a good fit because I have a small torso. Not that I mind being all legs (to be completely honest) but yes sometimes it can be tricky to find a good fit when it comes to pants. You can see how I styled these jeans previously here and here.
I got this pair from my husband. I love the design but hate how they feel on my feet. The heel is fine but the material the front part is made of (i.e. plastic) makes them uncomfortable, especially when it gets hot outside. I'm trying to work around that by pairing them with socks. They are actually quite comfortable as long as I don't wear them without socks. I have previously worn them here and here.
THE PRINTED LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT
Instead of wearing this tee, I just wrapped it around my waist for a bit of nineties vibes.
I wore this particular pair of jeans not too long ago for a stroll around Čapljina city. We also visited a charming cafe and restaurant on our way back to Mostar, but I'll blog more about that place some other time. This outfit was a great choice for a relaxing weekend getaways. Neretva river always amazes me with its beauty. I enjoy following it around Herzegovina. What about you? Do you agree that this river looks mighty impressive?
As much as I love colour, sometimes a neutral styling feels just right. How do you like this styling? Do you like vintage items? Do you own a vintage pair of jeans? How do you style your jeans? Do you like wearing jeans on every day basis? Do tell!
As always, thank you for reading and visiting! xoxo
