Ripped jeans. The title of this post already seems like an oxymoron. Ripped jeans, especially VERY destroyed styles, are anything but chic. (HERE you can see all the jeans trends for 2016!). They’re perfect for very casual, daytime outfits, perhaps with slip on shoes or sneakers, a shirt and a bomber jacket. But how on earth can you incorporate them into a chic look?

Ripped jeans… and a chic look!

I experimented with this look: I paired a pair of ripped boyfriend style jeans with a beaded bon-ton jacket with a loose red shirt, a pair of bright heels and a white bag. What do you think of this look with ripped jeans… chic? :)

Jeans with a raw-edged hem (and embellishments): the trend of the moment plus which shoes to wear with them!

Jeans with a raw-edged hem. One of this season’s biggest trends for jeans is definitely the raw-edged hem. (Click HERE if you missed my earlier post on THE JEANS TO WEAR IN 2016!). Yep, you heard that correctly, frayed hems are in fashion! Whether it’s threadbare, unstitched, cut or with beading, feathers or fringes! (Ahh, I love fringes).

But which shoes to wear with this kind or jeans, jeans with a ripped hem and even embellishments?? I’ve gathered together a few inspirational photos for you of frayed hem jeans to show you all the different kinds of shoes the fashion crowd have been pairing them with: sneakers, ankle boots, sandals and heels (and in case you’re not up to date, go and have a look at my post about the latest shoe trends!). Are you girls ready?? Here’s your inspiration!

Jelly shoes: they’re back! And not just on the beach! Here’s my street style look

Jelly shoes: they’re back in fashion!

Jelly shoes. Do you remember those shoes you wore when you were little, the plastic ones with the cut out eyelets down the sides (and sometimes also on the front part of the shoe), that had a buckle at the side that you wore to the beach (and that often gave you massive blisters)? Since they were almost always made of plastic they were known not only as “spider shoes” but also as jelly shoes. Well, this season, we welcome the return of the jelly shoe to fashion: we saw them on the catwalks in lots of different versions, both multicoloured and neutral, with flatforms, with heels, chunky styles, delicate styles… all designed precisely for the city!

Jelly shoes: they’re back in fashion. And not just for the beach! Here’s my street style look!

Obviously when reading a description such as this, you’re probably a little terrified. You’re almost certainly thinking “Okay, just another whimsical catwalk trend that I’ll never wear!”. But fear not, because there are lots and lots of very wearable options on the high street. I found this pair by Carmens that I can’t stop wearing (find them HERE on their website). They’re made of leather, combining the jelly shoe philosophy with the slip-on shoe trend, and they’re super comfortable: a great alternative to trainers for a casual look where you want to be comfortable but still look chic. What are your thoughts on the return of the jelly shoe? Do you like them?! Here’s my look!
