If you follow my #everydaystyle posts on Instagram you will know that I wear quite a bit of denim and in particular jeans. So I thought it was time to share two of my options for denim jeans luxe and less for the upcoming A/W season.
I used to think that distressed jeans were only suitable for the very young women with knock out figures. Over the last 18 months I have done a complete about face and they have become a wardrobe staple.
Now I do have a few rules about distressed jeans that I must follow
- There is to be no undie flashing action – I still have horrible flash backs to the fashion of quite a few years ago when your g-string popping out of the top of jeans was considered a thing. Let me just clarify this was never a ‘thing’ that I indulged in.
- While some distressing is fabulous I don’t want huge patches of bare skin where the jeans are held together by only a few lone threads.
The 2 pairs of distressed jeans below follow the above rules perfectly.
LESS – ROCKMANS FASHION
I recently was lucky enough to be invited to Rockmans Fashion Pretty Girl Press Day for their new Autumn/Winter collection. Now while I’m super excited for the new A/W season soon to be released in store – wait until you see what fabulous fashion is coming to the Table Eight brand, its stunning.
I was blown away by the new denim range that Rockmans has released so much so that the very next weekend I was down at my local store purchasing a pair. I decided on the Rockmans Ripped Boyfriend Jeans but they have some great Biker Jeggings $49.95 that I will be going back to buy – they come in 3 different colours black, indigo and blue.
I normally gravitate to skinny jeans – I find that they work best for my short legs and creates an illusion of length. This time I wanted something a bit different so the light washed boyfriend jean was the perfect option. As you will see I have purchased mine a bit more fitted than on the model below as I find if my jeans are too loose it adds unnecessary bulk to my short frame.
If you want to try something different it always a good idea to try it first with a item that is not going to break the bank that way if you hate it you don’t feel guilty about not wearing it. But no issues with that this time I love the slightly loose fit of these light wash jeans – they are the perfect addition to my denim collection.

LUXE – BOHEMIAN TRADERS
I won’t lie I love all things Bohemian Traders as my wardrobe will attest to if it could talk. So when they released a range of premium denim jeans I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pair.
The jeans come in three colours – distressed, indigo and black. Because of my new love of distressed jeans I couldn’t pass these ones up.
I did worry about buying them without trying them on, fit for jeans can tricky but after asking advice from Nikki from Styling You I decided to go with my usual fit. When my Bohemian Traders package arrived I nervously took them out and pulled them on, I heaved a great sign of relief when they fitted.
I found that they are pretty true to size and while they have some stretch in them they are not what I would call super stretchy.
I loved the slightly higher waist as this helps to hold everything in and create a more streamlined look – always a plus for me. They also fit nicely around the tush giving the illusion of a free slight butt lift, again a plus for me.
Also the slim fit around the calf and ankle makes these the perfect jeans for wearing high boots in winter. I think there is nothing worse than creating cankles when trying to stuff your jeans into your boots.
These are everything I love about skinny jeans and will definitely be getting a work out over the next few months/years.
