This isn’t a post about lady like clothes and elegant pearls. This is about what I would wear if I was off to lunch with my sister. In fact, I pulled this outfit on to head to the cafe the other day to do some blogging. I would normally wear my heeled boots for this sort of occasion because there’s plenty of sitting to be done. It’s also the sort of outfit you could wear some crazy heels with. Same reason. The sitting.

To replicate this outfit is pretty darn simple. Start with coloured jeans, add a shirt and some shoes. Rock star your hair and make-up a little and you’re good to go. Some of my funkier friends would incorporate a stud or two I think. Studded boots or a cuff. Something that tell everyone how tough you are. Nee, how COOL you are.

Now about the jeans. You can get these babies anywhere at the moment. I’ve tried plenty and there are only two plus size brands I recommend. These by Autograph {more of a standard cut} and the red jeans by Virtu {a slimmer, more modern cut}. I tried three difference pairs of ASOS coloured jeans and couldn’t make them work. Last year I bought six pairs of jeans from them. Goodness knows what’s going on there.

  • Love those jeans – great colour and fit!

    • They are rather great. I find the fabric a bit showy around the thighs and lumpy bits, but that’s coloured jeans, I think, they aren’t as forgiving as regular jeans.

  • Very cute! Great coloured jeans

  • I believe that I may have a coloured jeans addiction – I have 2 x Evans (mint & lilac), 1 x city chic (cobalt blue) 1 x ASOS (pink), 1 x Autograph (teal), 1 x Kmart (red) and 1 x Dorothy Perkins (red). The ones with the best fit is the Dorothy Perkins ones………….

    • Ooooo, thanks for the tip. I’m looking forward to getting some blue and mint green ones. Maybe a pink pair too. 😉

  • I totally have a coloured jeans addiction. Everything from Target, K-Mart and eBay to Saba and J Brand. It is getting out of control, I tell you. At last count I had about twelve pairs! I just got some pink and mint green ones for Spring before I went on my spending ban and I love them so much!

    If you want them at a great price you have to go to Big W – their Emerson and I think their plus size range as well has so many amazing colours for $18 and the quality is the same as my SABA ones.

    • You’re right, the Emerson ones are great wuality. Unfortunately the plus range is limited to two dark jewel tone colours in a fit that is VERY unflattering on me. I’m jealous of the Emerson jeans. I want colbolt blue!
