Sort your jeans with Eto Jeans

How many pairs of jeans would you say the average man owns? I’m guessing that the number would run into double figures for most men, although many polls say that you really only need to own four pairs in a couple of different styles and colours. I’m not sure about that, I think jeans are one of those clothing items that people tend to find a style and stick to it, but then buy it in triplicate, but these days there are so many great designs, in a range of colours that exceed blue, black and (shudders) white. You might just be limiting your wardrobe just a little too much if you stick to four pairs.

Eto Jeans have every style and colour when it comes to great denim. They pride themselves on their affordability and so have pairs of jeans that start at just £19.99. There are all different washes, from stonewash, darkwash, black and grey styles, combat styles with pockets on the knees and sides, cuffed fits that look great in summer with Toms and Vans, and even, with one eye firmly towards Summer on what is a lovely warm day, denim shorts that are crying out for a plain white t-shirt and havaianas.

Denim is no longer just a casual, weekend option. With this in mind, there are also styles that will work well worn with shirts and blazers for a more stylish evening look. I love the slim fit black stretch jeans featured below, I think these would be brilliant for both day and night wear as they could look smart with a shirt or slimfit polo shirt, or more casual with a t-shirt.

How many pairs of jeans do you own – what is your denim style?

Janis Joplin festival style

Over the Easter holiday I enjoyed catching up on a bit of television, and one thing that I watched was a docu-film about the legendary Janis Joplin. Called ‘Janis Joplin – Little Girl Blue’, it was a story that told about her life, her work, her problems and showed many of her legendary performances, including ‘Ball and Chain’, ‘Cry Baby’ and ‘Another Piece of My Heart.’

One of the things I noticed whilst watching the film was what incredible style Janis had. This was the late 1960s when hippy chick was all the rage, and with festival fever taking off with Monteray, Woodstock and The Isle of Wight festivals amongst others, Janis was really the first woman to perfect the festival Chic looks that we now see everywhere from Coachella to Glastonbury each year.

Janis was a fashion magpie who loved bright colours,  beautiful fabrics and lots of jewellery as part of her overall look. Think floral print trousers, Kimono style jackets, long rows of beads and acres and acres of jangling bangles. Add into the mix the sort of bell bottomed jeans that made such a comeback last year, teamed with boho style blouses with bell shaped sleeves and then layered with waistcoats and Afghan coats, and you get a look that is strangely modern and actually fairly perfect for festival season in the weather challenged UK.

Classic Janis

Janis’s look has inspired so many icons of style, from Kate Moss and Kristen Stewart, to Stevie Nicks and Billie Piper. Her incredible voice and performances mean that she will remain an ultimate musical icon, but the woman who was plagued with the thought that she was never pretty enough was actually beautiful, stylish and vibrant, and continues to inspire with her music, her passion and her wardrobe.

Alexa Chung for AG Jeans

She’s done it again. The supremely stylish and unique Alexa Chung launched her new collection for AG Jeans last week and the collection is now available at Selfridges. Totally channeling a 70s vibe which seems to combine Jodie Foster in Freaky Friday with Daisy Duke, the collection is full of a-line mini skirts in denim and suede, dungarees and kick flare jeans, and pussy bow blouses. I actually think if you combined the outfits of both Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster in Freaky Friday, you get Alexa’s collection, sort of grown up glamour and geeky youthfulness all in one!

One of my current style crushes, Harley Viera Newton, shows that pink and denim is a great colour combo, whilst Alexa’s great friend Pixie Geldof turns a daytime sweatshirt into a piece suitable for a rock chick by adding a hot red leather skirt.
