Denim Wardrobe Update

When it comes to my love for denim, I’ve recently admitted that I’m a one style girl and that style is skinny jeans. However, a recent miracle has happened to my denim wardrobe, a spring miracle if you like. The skinnies have been banished to the back in favour of a new style, the Mom jeans . .who would have thought it?

Denim Wardrobe : The Facts

This infographic on jeans by Superdry is so interesting and true in my opinion! I guess as with any item in your wardrobe there’s particular styles you favour and wear time and time again.

I think it’s so funny that people hold on to their old jeans because they spend too much money on them or are waiting for them to come back into fashion. When it comes to clothes I’m really not a hoarder! I have a good eBay session at least once a month as I love to have a clean and tidy wardrobe, it helps me to get dressed more easily! I thought I would have a little rummage through my jeans and go through what my denim wardrobe looks like – they say the average person owns 7 pairs and the most popular styles are skinny, boyfriend and high waist so we will see!

My Denim Wardrobe

7 pairs – I cannot believe I am that predictable, as if I match up with an infographic! Also as a self confessed denim addict I think I need to go and buy more stat! I’ve listed them in order of the amount I wear the pair!

Black Ripped Mom Jeans – Asos
Blue Ripped Mom Jeans – Asos

These two are currently my most worn jeans by far. I fell in love with the black pair and promptly bought myself the same style in blue. I have to say I was worried about buying jeans online from Asos but I am so happy with them, I’m definitely a convert and they make the perfect additions to my denim wardrobe!

Black Wax Coated Skinnies – Topshop

These are my go to jeans for when I want to look smart or on nights out. I feel much smarter and dressier in this pair!

Blue Straight Leg Jeans – Next

A ridiculously comfortable pair of jeans that are casual and fit really nicely without being skinny. I feel like me and the skinny jeans might need some time to miss each other – not the black ones though!

Blue Ripped Skinnies – Topshop

These were my previous favourites and I lived in them for the past year or so. My discovery of Mom jeans and the recent additions to my denim wardrobe means these guys have definitely been pushed to the back!

White Ripped Skinnies – Primark

I only wear these in the summer, don’t get me wrong they get a lot of wear in the summer but at the moment they’re definitely in the back gathering dust!

Grey Pull On Skinnies – H&M

I literally only own these because they look nice with like 1 or 2 outfits. I should probably get rid as I’m not a huge fan of the fit, style or colour –  basically I’m keeping them incase one day I might want to wear them.

So I would say I have 4 pairs that get regular wear, 1 pair that gets occasional wear and 2 that I never wear . . until Summer perhaps!

A Dress As A Top?

When Quiz first asked me about working together I was very unsure, it’s not that I don’t like their clothing at all, it’s just that I’m such a casual gal and I kind of categorise them in my mind as evening/party wear. Even when I go out partying (using that word very loosely) I will most likely wear jeans, and if I do venture into skirt category, I will wear a jumper or something to casual it down!

Anyway, I took a look at their website and actually I was pleasantly surprised, and thought about how I could style up something to make it more Sinead appropriate. Of course this meant incorporating my denim wardrobe in there some where some how, isn’t this outfit just proof that jeans have a place in every look?

I love the way I’ve styled this shirt dress as a top and now the possibilities are endless, I’m plotting and planning different ways of mixing the evening section of my wardrobe into my everyday life. I also think because this isn’t a super fancy dress it will be perfect for me in the summer with some ankle boots, who else can’t wait till it’s warm enough to wander round bare legged without a care in the world?

    Lovely post! When I moved house I drastically cut down on my jeans (and all my other clothes!) and I have to say I think I could do with one or two more pairs. Maybe not seven, but you know, enough to go with all different outfits! xx

    • 23rd March 2016 / 7:46 pm

      well if 7 is the average maybe you need more . . haha! I always like to have lots because to be honest I don’t wear much else!

    Love this, I’m addicted to skinnies but love the new mom style, love this pair you’re wearing ! x

    • 23rd March 2016 / 7:45 pm

      Thanks hun! They’re really comfortable and they’re not too baggy, I feel like they’re the perfect compromise between skinny and boyfriend styles!!

    My fave type of jeans are definitely skinnies, highwaisted please. It’s funny because until a few years ago I HAD to wear low waisted jeans, anything a bit too close to my belly button and I had a really annoying feeling (something happened with my belly button when I was a baby, don’t know how to say it in English) but then it changed, probably healed completely?, and I prefer high waisted ones haha. Anything in between low waist and high waist I still can’t stand though because of the feeling.
    And I’ve noticed that with becoming older, lol I sound old now, that more and more people I know wear jeans with a nice top/blouse/.. to go out.
    Really interesting to see this infographics, it’s so true that I keep jeans because I want to lose weight. I have more than 7pairs but at the moment only wear 2.. I have jeans in about 4 different sizes but I guess that comes with it when you have to take lots of meds and then gain weight and lose weight again etc etc. I put them far away in my closet so I can’t see them because it hurts to see them (not because of the jeans but the weight..) but I also can’t throw them away because of the constant weight gain and loss.
    Okay this is a long comment haha, sorry Sinead 😉

      haha I do have some that I know I can’t wear at certain times and ones I will only wear if I’m not eating a lot! And then I have the ones I wear when I know I’m going to eat a lot!!!
      I know what you mean, more and more I like to wear jeans and a top for a night out! It’s just nice to be warm now!!!!

    Fab post..
    I have 8 pairs of jeans. x4 skinny, x2 relaxed skinny, x1 straight leg, x1
    I believe this to be a normal amount. I’m happy with that. Each has a need/occasion. All is well with my wardrobe. 🙂 :p
    Love love love this outfit though, love how you’ve styled the dress. It’s definitely a smart/going out outfit. 🙂


    • 23rd March 2016 / 7:43 pm

      I need to get rid of the ones that I don’t wear and buy more I want!!

    Such an interesting post! When it comes to jeans I’m very boring I just have about 5 pair of skinny jeans! xx

    • 27th March 2016 / 11:53 pm

      haha me too! I just dipped my toe into the denim ocean and now I think I’m ready to swim – how corny?!

    • 27th March 2016 / 11:49 pm

    Because I can wear jeans in the office I love in them but my go to is definitely high waisted skinny. Those mom jeans are lovely though, might have to grab a pair!

    • 27th March 2016 / 11:48 pm

      They are! They fit pretty much like skinnies at the top though not so restricting then go straight down!
