Today I have my final instalment of the little white denim edit. I loved creating these posts with Paul, and setting myself a brief just for the fun of it - and these photos are my favourite yet. I have also saved the fanciest jeans until last. I say fanciest because they cost me an arm and a leg, but I wouldn't say they are too much better than the previous two pairs. The reason I decided to get them was because I have been on the hunt for some trousers in this style for quite some time - and after no luck on the high street I broadened my horizons to Matches Fashion. They are by Rachael Comey, and it turns out I love everything by her, I could have gone wild!!! But, I showed some restraint and just went for these jeans. They're also available in blue and black, but in all honesty I can't see myself repurchasing these again. They are so high waisted, which is what I wanted, but I have actually been struggling to wear them because of that. I have a short body anyway, and these do nothing to make that any longer - if you were more of the long body/shorter leg proportions then I think they would look a little better! The other downside to the high waist is how much the denim creases over the crotch. It's a very lightweight denim which I think contributes to how much it does crease (I can't say I have ever noticed any other jeans doing this?!)
Negatives aside, there are some aspects to these jeans that I love. The fit down the leg is amazing, the perfect width that moves them more into the realm of culottes then jeans. I am not sure how well you can see but there is a slight crease a few inches above the hem of the jeans, such a subtle detail but one that I really loved. I decided to embrace the high waist and say goodbye to my torso and go for a tucked in look, but I have since styled these up with a longer top which I loved even more. I am thinking of these with a big white shirt and some slides would be an incredible combination for Summer? Lets hope so, because right now I am not feeling like I invested wisely in these ones! I promise to get some more posts featuring these trousers up throughout Spring to see just how versatile they manage to be.
Can we also just end this post with a little moment of appreciation for these photos? All of the ones Paul took as part of these series have been incredible, but these one have to by favourite from them all. Thank you SO much, Paul!
