Toothpick jeans … The skinny.
This week has been half term week for kids in London, and like many mums, I’ve been working my staple ‘jeans with everything’ basic look since London Fashion Week has drawn to a close. Recently I’ve found myself getting into a bit of a boyfriend jeans style rut, so I thought it was about time I road tested toothpick jeans as a slightly smarter alternative.
It’s fair to say I’m a bit of a cropped jean fan at the best of times. Even the winter chills don’t disrupt my quest to rock a little bare ankle with my pointy flats or my Marc Jacobs creepers. So toothpick jeans are the perfect way to segue my way out of my boyfriend jean boredom.
Toothpick jeans … How to wear them
To work your toothpick jeans to their full preppy potential, but with an eye firmly focused on spring trends, why not pair yours with one of the hot hues like peony pink. This cute Whistles sweater throws in a bright pop of colour when combined with the Reiss blush pink biker jacket. You can also look out for oranges, lemons and other sorbet colour combinations in lighter knits ready for spring.
I snagged the Boden pointed slingbacks as soon as I saw them in the catalogue – I’m going to be wearing them to death this spring.
One great way to work in a spring trend before the weather warms up fully, is to grab an accessory or two in a fresh palette. This Sophie Anderson bucket bag will work way on through to the summer and beach barbecue territory.
