Ripped Jeans and Flannel

Primark Outfit

Flannel shirt – Primark. T-shirt – Primark. Jeans – Primark. Belt – gift from my Mum’s holiday in Italy. Shoes – Converse. Fishnet tights. Bag – Michael Kors, thrifted

Having joked the other day about accidentally wearing a whole outfit of Primark…here is an outfit of almost all Primark. Those of you who are eagle-eyed may have noticed these jeans are actually the ones I wear as part of my MJ cosplay. I have a fair few pieces that get worn in both my regular and cosplay wardrobes. Before this, I’d never owned ripped jeans, and hadn’t thought much about them, but I started seeing people pairing them with fishnet tights. University George was really into coloured tights, and this look appealed to that part of me. I might adventure into a darker wash, but I actually really like the pale denim for spring. The weather at the moment swaps back and forth between freezing and almost hot, and I think this layered look works really well for that awkward transitional weather.

How to wear ripped jeans

I’m really enjoying slogan t-shirts at the moment, usually geeky in theme, but I will also buy anything with a reference to coffee on it. I am a complete caffeine addict, and this t-shirt made me laugh, so in the basket it went. The weather was weird when we were out, not cool enough for a jacket, and not warm enough for short sleeves on their own, so I threw this flannel shirt over the top and it sorted out any temperature confusion.

Casual dressing

I feel like I’m in a bit of a shifting stage in my personal style at the moment, a little bit more like the way I dressed at university. I’d moved into a more ‘smart casual’ vibe in recent years, and I love 50s shapes, so I have a lot of skirts and dresses. Recently, I’ve been coming back to jeans and a bit more casual dressing, which I’m actually really liking. I prefer this time of year I think, as I find summer dressing so hard, and winter dressing even worse with all the layers. I am so cold-blooded, so style goes out the window in winter and it’s more about how many jumpers I can put on at once. So chic.
