It all started when Isabel Marant sent models sashaying down the catwalk in pastel pink jeans. Ever since then, I’ve lusted after a pair.
The luxury label’s American-inspired spring/summer 2011 collection certainly hit a fashion nerve and brands like Current/ Elliott and J Brand have jumped to produce similar versions. And while I’d never divert away from my black jeans, pink ones could really get me experimenting with a bit of colour.
These J Brand mid-rise jeans are spot-on for this season. Ankle length and in a skinny leg, they’re lightweight enough to be worn all summer long – plus, they come in a classic five-pocket style and provide just the right amount of stretch.
The super slimness of them means they look best with something a little voluminous up top – think an oversized blazer and tee or channel Isabel Marant and pair them with a loose varsity jacket. With the sales just starting, I’m going to make it my mission to get a pair by the end of summer.
