To say I've had a bit of a "thing" for the deep turn up jeans from MIH is a bit of an understatment. Certainly a fashion bloggers/editors favourite with plenty of sightings back at February's Fashion Week.
With the ever popular Phoebe jeans having a starting price tag of £185 going up to £220, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that us mere mortals with a budget for high street denim won't be getting a look in when it comes to the slouchy, boyfriend jeans with their deep turn ups, so I wondered if there was a way I could replicate the trend without breaking the bank or even better, actually spending any money.
I don't own a pair of boyfriend jeans (only Current Elliott Dads Jeans - years old and hardly ever worn - massive, your dad is bigger than your boyfriend obviously), nor do I own any jeans that haven't had at least six inches lobbed off the bottom by a seamstress. Or so I thought. And then I stumbled across a pair in a pile on the shelf in my wardrobe which I remembered I had never had taken up, I always wore these with the bottoms rolled up. About twenty three times. Perhaps these could be the perfect pair to try and replicate the deeper and deeper micro trend.
The jeans are probably about three years old, the style is called "cherry" and they were from Oasis, so my first concern was if they would still fit, but luckily they are a very soft and stretchy denim, tighter than when last worn, thats for sure, but I can still do them up at least! They are described as a skinny jean but I have pairs that are far skinner, never mind as long as I can do the deep turn up thingy, I'm not really bothered.
Complete bloody result I never gave these the chop, they may not be slouchy but I am loving the turn up, so will press this baby in with the iron and reinvent them into something channelling the look I currently love. Sometimes it's not so bad being a short arse!
Shop the MIH Phoebe jeans here and the full range of "cherry" jeans at Oasis here. I was shocked to find Oasis still do the "cherry" but I would definitely recommend them for softness and comfort and the fact mine had loads of wear a few years back and are still in great condition - a thumbs up for high street denim.
So do not fear if you are buying new jeans either skinny or boyfriend and normally need to have them taken up, as for this season at least, just turn them up, press with a hot iron and save your self a few quid!
Have you ever reinvented any old garments in the name of fashion? Have you ever bought either MIH or Oasis jeans?
