Tomorrow is Jeans for Genes day and I am so excited to come on board as an ambassador this year. It is a charity that is very close to my heart, as a mum and someone who has always admired the research taking place at the Children’s Medical Research Institute, I couldn’t wait to be involved in this year’s Jeans for Genes campaign. Every dollar raised on the day helps the CMRI to discover treatments and cures so children can lead healthy lives. So, that inspired me to create a post on six of my favourite jean styles I have been wearing non-stop, as this winter is an exciting time for denim as there are more styles to try than ever before.
1.FRAYED EDGE HEM– Drastic uneven hems or cropped denim with soft frayed hems is the way to go this season. It gives your denim a boyish edge and looks great when you mix it with more feminine pieces like cute kitten heels (styling tip: red heels with blue denim, soo good) or embellished flats for a mix of hard and soft. Frayed denim also looks great paired with tailored blazers, some faux fur or an oversized denim jacket.
2.CROPPED WIDE LEG It’s all about showing off your ankle and shoes this season with the wide leg cropped style. This shape is much easier to wear than the traditional super wide leg styles and looks great worn with off shoulder knits.
3.HIGH WAIST- Ladies, it all about the high-waist this season. Be it, denim jeans or skirts. It’s super flattering, and I love that it gives you the freedom to tuck in your favourite 90’s tee or button-down shirt to accentuate your waist. The high- waist lengthens your legs, so you have the freedom to pair this look with your favourite pair of sneakers. It also looks just as good with high pointed heels if you are heading out at night.
4.EMBROIDERED PATCHES We can thank Gucci for fueling our love for embroidery. I love big floral patches and embellishments. I like to keep the top half of my outfit simple when I am wearing this style, so you make the embroidery the hero.

5.PATCHWORK DETAILS I’m all about denim with patchwork details and a frayed hem. I love wearing this look with sneakers and a clean white shirt.
