Everyday style outfits of the week

Nikki ParkinsonEveryday Style, Fashion 27 Comments

It’s Denim Week on  Styling You’s everyday style round-up.

It may not be anywhere near winter weather but a slight drop in temperatures around the country has seen more and more legs encased in denim.

Albeit, many of said encased denim legs comes with their own ventilation holes.

Yes, my friends, distressed denim is here to stay. Holes are in.

Worried if you have to be a certain age to wear this trend? Worry not. Remember style doesn’t come with a use-by-date.

If you have the confidence and attitude to wear them then go for it.

My only suggestion is to find a pair that it still streamlined in style. Even boyfriend jeans can be streamlined. They have to work with your leg shape, not against.

A leg that it is slim or skinny is always the most flattering. I know not everyone believes me on this but the only way you can really test it for yourself is to trial different leg widths in a change room mirror and honestly appraise the difference.

SY #everydaystyle (the outfit you liked the most)

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Metalicus. Some of my most reliable wardrobe pieces come from this brand. Pieces that are always ready to serve – never waiting and winking at me from the ironing pile.

This dress is one of those pieces – it’s one I can wear all year round – layered according to what the weather is dishing up.

Your #everydaystyle

I love that you’ll take your denim any way you can get it, ripped, dark, pale wash … but always streamlined.

  1. I long for the day I can wear my jeans fully again. I’m finding it so hot and humid right now but everyone you’ve shown looks so great in your round-up!

  2. Thank you so much for the inclusion Nikki. I do love my jeans! I am on the hunt for a pair of boyfriend jeans that suit my body shape. They are so versatile and great with high heeled pumps. Loving #everydaystyle! So nice to be introduced to lots of new people with fabulous style. You’re looking as gorgeous as ever btw! x

  3. Thank you so very much for mentioning my blog Nikki. You are such a sharer and an inspiration … so much of what you do is in the good and great ‘spirit’ of blogging.

    I’ve just go back to wearing jeans too, and what a relief it is to don the denim again. Love this week’s #everydaystyle roundup of sassy girls looking great 🙂

  4. I’ve only very recently gotten back into wearing jeans and I’m loving it! So far I’ve got my mid-wash Sussan jeans (that I’m wearing in this week’s roundup – thank you!) and a pair of dark wash jeans also from Sussan. I’ve now got my eye on a black pair and a boyfriend pair, both from Bohemian Traders. (PS: thanks for giving me the confidence to buy and wear a kimono/cape jacket! x)

  5. Love these looks Nikki and I actually bought boyfriend jeans but they have a straighter leg I haven’t worn them yet but know I will I went for no holes but in a soft lighter wash as I think I will leave the rips and holes for younger girls.
    I missed 2 days this week as I was busy and didn’t have toime to photograph what I was wearing but love checking out everyone’s everyday style,have a lovely weekend Nikki x

  6. Man, those girls and “guy” on your #everydaystyle look amazing in their jeans – they all look like models for a jean company! Not ready to pull out my jeans just yet tho’. Have a great weekend Nikki.

  7. always a good thankyou nikki!
    definitely a fan of not worrying about the age of a person.
    style is everything, not so much fashion “if the shoe fits wear it!” … yes pleeese … I love shoes to bits!
    as for jeans, yes always a staple, dressed up or down can take one anywhere. I personally love jag jeans they suit my figure type to a tee! bringing out the oldies this year. inspired by you m:)X

  8. Great to see a man joining in! I wish my husband had the slightest interest in fashion. He will wear whatever I tell him but I just don’t want to have to 🙂 Can honestly say, other than shorts and chambray pants, I have not dragged the denim out yet. Better investigate over the holidays before the time comes and there is a wardrobe malfunction.

  9. Hi Nikki,
    Big fan of Jo from icurvy. I have a similar body shape. I love how she manages to bring the ‘funk’ into her corporate life.
