Snakeprint Skinny Jeans and Cable Knit Jumper

Jeans and a jumper is my go-to winter outfit when I’m at home. Working freelance means I’m at home quite a lot so I’ve no need to dress up. When I’m working in the newsroom I usually wear trousers and a lightweight sweater, or a dress with tights and boots. But when I’m doing the school run, volunteering at the wildlife hospital or just running errands I always wear jeans and a jumper in some form.

Pairing these snakeprint skinny jeans and slouchy cable knit jumper creates contrast between casual and dressy.

Although new denim trends come and go I don’t think I’ll ever tire of skinny jeans. They are just so versatile and can be dressed up or down. For me they are a wardrobe staple. This is the second pair of black coated skinny jeans I’ve acquired recently (you may remember the glitter jeans from a few weeks ago). Pairing these snakeprint skinny jeans and slouchy cable knit jumper creates contrast between casual and dressy. Having a loose fitting top with the tight jeans also balances proportions.

You have so many styling options with a pair of black skinny jeans, especially when they are coated or have a subtle pattern.

These jeans from Simply Be are incredibly good value for money – they are currently reduced to just £14! They start at size 10 and go up to 32, although some sizes are no longer in stock. They have a little bit of stretch – enough to hold their shape but still be comfortable. You have so many styling options with a pair of black skinny jeans, especially when they are coated or have a subtle pattern: you can team them with a smart blouse and blazer for an office-appropriate outfit, a camisole top for evening, or a jumper as I have for daytime.

For footwear I chose a pair of studded court shoes because I’ve been wearing boots non-stop for months and really needed a change. Ankle boots or funky metallic trainers would work really well for a more casual (and practical) option. The orange bag and earrings add just enough colour to lift the grey and black. I tried the outfit with a hat to see if it worked (as you’ll see in the last photo) but I think it’s a bit busy with the earrings. Alas, there was no way of hiding a bad hair day!

What’s your favourite way to wear skinny jeans? Do you like coated/embellished jeans?

I’d like to start wearing jeans more, as u said, they are a staple. I’m looking for their white jeans in a skinny cut…notout yet.Love your sweater, look pretty in grey and comfy! I’ve been wearing ankle boots constantly and am ready for a change too.Love the shape of your orange bag!

    I love the subtle print of these skinny jeans. Like you, I also adore this wardrobe staple. I am also a huge fan of cable sweaters. You can imagine that I love this look!

    Emma, I love those jeans with that sweater! I’m a big fan of skinny jeans too! Being petite, it’s easier to get them at just the right length, and they just look better on. I got several pairs of coated jeggings in different colors several years ago from H&M, and their sizes must run really small, because they were so tight ! I didn’t send them back, but I’ve never worn them either! I mean, if I srink to elementary school size, maybe I’ll wear them one day! Have a great weekend!

    Those jeans are so cute! I love the print on them, and they would go with absolutely everything! Your bag and earrings compliment the outfit perfectly!
