I was quite surprised when Burberry launched a denim line in summer 2009, and was even more surprised to find out they are the most comfortable jeans that I own. The quality, fit, and most important comfort completely outdo all my other jeans. Now, that was a pleasant surprise!
Their soft denim, dark wash, cute pockets, and statement flare... was a sight that I could not resist. I have always loved flared denim, which has nothing to do with Rachael Zoe and her signature flares obsession. I love flares because of the illusion they create, a long and flawless look that is hard to beat. There's something so appealing about a cute wedge, a form fitting top, and beautifully crafted flares. In my mind, they were a perfect match for my body and my style.
To my surprise, the new Burberry denim line is also "affordable" in comparison to other higher end jeans, between $190-$250. The only challenge is they are difficult to find... I bought my pair at Holt Renfew Last Call (only one pair and luckily in my size) for a little over $100, which was a great surprise. But I do really love that Burberry is kicking up their youth appeal with cute designs. Lately, I've been really obsessing over the brand and especially their classic trenches! A Burberry trench is another one of my must-haves.
Wearing anything outside of skinnies or crops is unusual for me. So transitioning my style and expending horizons is challenging, since flares are not a style that you see often especially casually, so I wasn't sure how to wear them. However since I was just running errands, I paired my Burberry Flares with my Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket for a test run.
I adore my Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket because of its cute quilted look and gold details. I added a simple nude tee which complements the stitching on the jeans and the nude tone of Ash wedges. Plus, although many women are not very fond of wedges they are very wearable and fit perfectly with my entire wardrobe. On another note, I've been really loving a half-tucked tee look = tucking your tee slightly at one side and letting it naturally flow on the other. Although this is not my "typical" look, I felt proud for branching out of my crops and skinnies comfort zone.
