These jeans were totally inspired by the babes at The Debrief, most of whom own some variation of them and style them out expertly. As a lanky beanpole I was of the mind these would look pretty damn atrocious on me and when I first took them out of their packaging I couldn't be more convinced I was right. But these are the type of jean that couldn't look more different on than off the hanger. They're actually super flattering with their high waist, ankle-skimming length and ripped hems. Along with a breton top and square neck scarf they offer up perfect day-time cool. So thanks Debrief gals, you are all ACE.
Sliders are apaz making a comeback this summer too, which is great news for these River Island ugly wonders, bought last year under the assumption that they would fulfil a very short-lived seasonal trend. And this Hermès square neck scarf...WELL...! Passed down from Mumma bear (as a gift from an ex-boyfriend of hers- lolz) it's stayed glued to my neck this past season. Despite looking a little 'air-hostess-chic', the scarf adds a new dimension to any outfit and, as an extra advantage, keeps your neck nice and toasty. WIN WIN.
