A-List Style Inspiration for Jeans For Genes Day 2018
This Friday marks Jeans For Genes Day 2018, which, if you’re not familiar with it (where have you been?) is a day where we’re all encouraged to don our denims and donate to Genetic Disorder UK, the charity for sufferers of genetic disorders and illnesses.
But if you’re being asked to get all dressed up in denim this Friday to raise money, and you aren’t sure where to start, I’m here to help, with some A-list style inspiration (and a little help from Fashion World and their fantastic range of jeans to suit all shapes and sizes) to ensure that whatever you choose to wear, you’re fundraising in style.
Sienna Miller is a style icon for the ages, and I love her pairing of soft grey skinnies with a plush pink jumper. The Premium Shape & Sculpt Skinny Jeans in grey are fab for helping you to feel confident too - especially for those of you who don’t usually have a casual dress code at work. The jeans use clever engineering within the fabric to give you a sculpted silhouette, which ensures a smooth shape that always looks fabulous. Steal Sienna’s style and rock your grey skinnies with chic leather loafers and an oversized pink jumper for an easy-breezy take on denim.
Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always looks like a goddess, even in her jeans. If you, like me, are strictly black denim only, then make like Rosie and take the look up a level, by choosing a style with edgy rips and tears - Fashion World’s Chloe style are a fabulous dupe, with a slimming high waist fit too. Tuck them into black boots and pair with a grey jumper and a sweeping black coat for a look that will take you from office to bar in a flash.
Jeans may be a great option for a dress-down day, but it’s easy to make them glam too. Simply take inspiration from Reese Witherspoon, who wears her classic blue skinnies with heels, a bejewelled blouse, structured handbag and a chic cropped jacket. The basis of making sure this look isn’t ‘too much’ for daytime is choosing a simple style of jeans, like the classic Everyday Skinny style, and keeping the look tonal. It’s perfect for work if you’ve got a day of meetings and you still want to look sharp, plus you can easily take this look out for post-work cocktails!
If your look is more seventies boho than sleek, look to Kate Hudson for a dose of retro style inspiration. Rocking a look that’s fresh out of Almost Famous, Kate’s bootcut flared denims are the perfect partner to a shaggy shearling coat and a cosy knit. Opting for flared jeans is always a bit of a brave choice if you’re usually strictly a skinnies kinda girl, but start subtly with the Everyday Bootcut style, and pair with some comfy heeled boots (preferably brown, lush!) for a gorgeous vintage vibe.
Trust Diane Kruger to take a wardrobe basic and turn into a quirky new look. If you’re feeling bold and want to make a statement on Jeans For Genes Day, take a leaf out of Diane’s style bible and dip your toe into the world of cropped jeans. The Sadie Stretch Crop style is a great start if you haven’t tried a cropped pair before. Luckily for the sartorially-shy among us, Diane’s chosen some real style staples to wear with her edgy denims - who among us doesn’t love leopard print, leather jackets and breton tops?! Necktie optional…
Hopefully this guide will help you to feel more confident in whichever style you choose to wear this Jeans For Genes Day, but make sure you check out Fashion World’s denim style guide too. Whatever you wear, make sure you donate - it’s all for a fabulous cause!
