I’ve recently posted a lot of make-up posts, so I thought I’d mix it up a bit for you and put up a clothes related post. Following on from my Favourite Four Products I Can’t Live Without post, I thought I’d do the same but with items of clothing.
First up is 100% without a doubt my current favourite pair of shoes (shoes are included in items of clothing right?). My Old Skool Vans. I’ve wanted a pair of these for ages but at £50 I just couldn’t seem to justify them (which is mad considering I’ll happily spend that on make-up or books?) but I bit the bullet and treated myself in February. Every time I come home and have to take my shoes off I actually hate having to take them off – but my Mom is a real anti-shoes in the house Mom. They’re so so comfy and although they probably don’t quite go with everything, I make them work with everything. They’re basically the only shoes I wear now. I’m such a Vans/Converse over heels kind of girl and I just wish I’d bloody bought these sooner! I got mine from Schuh, here’s the link if you want to check them out.
Next up, of course, would be my black jeans. Although I end up buying a new pair every few months because they always fade (if you know of any pairs out there that don’t fade LET ME KNOW, I beg you), they’re still my go-to trouser option. I usually opt for ASOS ones as they’re quite stretchy – which is always needed after dinner, being high waisted jeans – I also like how you can choose the leg length as I’m a tall gal and the average length jeans just aren’t ever long enough for me. Black jeans are just so easy to work with; you can put them with more or less anything and they can be casual, smart, dressy. You can’t go wrong.
I’ve mentioned this black dungaree dress from H&M before in my February Favourites, and it has quite quickly become one of my favourite items of clothing ever. It is my go-to when my Mom forces me to wash my black jeans, or when I’ve worn my black jeans for more than the socially acceptable amount of days and need to change it up to show people that I do own other clothes. I really love how it looks with my Vans too actually. I can also get away with it at work, as when worn with the right top it can look quite formal. So it’s a win win, I love it. If you fancy getting yourself one, you can check it out here.
I’m really torn for my last one. I can’t decide whether to go with my leather jacket or my denim jacket, so I’m going to be rebellious and mention both. Although I’ve got a variety of coats and jackets, I always end up wearing one of these two. I usually opt for the leather jacket for work or if I’m trying to look a bit more dressy. Whereas, the denim jacket is a bit more laid back and informal – which is more me to be honest. My denim jacket is super oversized and again is from ASOS. It was about £55 I believe when I bought it about this time last year, but it’s a real investment. I can’t seem to find the same jacket, but here’s one very similar you can get. My leather jacket isn’t actually leather, it’s faux and it was just from Boohoo for around £30. I got it about two and a half years ago, so it’s lasted me well, and it’s just so easy to put with everything, like black jeans. Again, I don’t think it’s the exact same but here’s a really similar one, and it’s vegan too!
So there’s my four (or five) favourite items of clothing. What are your favourite items of clothing? Are any of yours the same of mine? Let me know in the comments!
