At the end of May I purchased this light wash denim jacket from Pagani. For my readers outside New Zealand, Pagani is comparable to River Island, Oasis and Miss Selfridge – high street fashion featuring the latest trends and styles at affordable prices. If I could describe my wardrobe it would be classic, comfortable and stylish (I try anyway). I have a lot of neutral pieces I can interchange but I also like colour.
- Ten buttons
- Silver hardware
- Four front pockets
- Relaxed, boxy fit
- Cropped cut
The light wash is flattering against my fair skin and I do like the boxy, cropped fit of this jacket, it looks more tailored. I do have to roll the sleeves up but they aren’t too long. A denim jacket is one of those pieces that goes with just about everything and can be worn year round – I’ve constantly been wearing mine since I bought it.
Outfit #1: Day Date
Top: Glassons – Grey Merino Blend Boxy Jumper
Pants: Glassons – Black Ponte Pants
This outfit is my favourite of the three. I’d had my hair done the previous day and felt extra nice in it. I wanted to be comfortable and warm on the date as it was still the end of winter. Side note about the date: I met a guy for lunch. He seemed nice but neither of us felt a connection so it didn’t go anywhere. The jacket isn’t bulky and allows for layering so it was perfect. I paired it with a lightweight grey jumper and black pants.
Outfit #2: Floral Dress
Dress: Glassons – Floral High-Low Dress
This outfit would work year round, just add some stockings and cute boots! If I’m brave enough I will wear this outfit in summer with bare legs and sandals. Legs are the body part I like least about myself and worry about the most. My legs look bigger than other parts of my body and they are very pale so I have to be careful they don’t burn. I don’t fake tan and whilst I’m not embarrassed about my pale skin I do tend to cover up.
Outfit #3: Casual and Comfy
Top: Glassons – Black Merino Curve Blend Hem Jumper
Pants: Glassons – Navy Seal Ponte Pants
Outfit one and three are similar but I feel they are reflective of my style. Ponte pants are like leggings but they are thicker, warmer and just as comfortable. Like leggings they are elasticated and can be dressed up or down. I love navy as an alternative to black and it means I can wear black on my top half without wearing black head to toe – there’s nothing wrong with black but I do like the two tones of blue from the jacket and pants with this jumper. The jumper is also super stylish on it’s own, it has a curved hem and a small zip up the back. Both jumpers skim over my tummy which is a bonus!
