When the lovely ladies at Style Compare contacted me asking if I'd be up for styling a pair of pastel jeans for their new styling challenge on their blog, Style Platform, I couldn't want to get stuck in! With pastels being one of my favourite (and one of the most wearable) trends for this spring/summer and jeans being my ultimate go to (as you probably know...) I was keen to have a rummage in my wardrobe.

With the last time I'd worn jeans this bright being when I was about 14 and channelling the Klaxons 'Nu Rave look' I was determined not to revisit that 'style' phase in my life and make them look a little more ladylike and dare I say 'trendy'. In the end I went with the full blown sorbet candy-esque look. An outfit certainly fit for the sunny weather (apparently the cloudier it is the brighter your clothes look), I chose a crisp collared peplum top and my new 80's style peach jacket with my Topshop chunky heels- for a more 'grown up' (and tall) edge. I can't wait to play around with these jeans and style them with oversized t shirts, chunky necklaces and mannish brogues to trial all the ways they can be worn!

Additionally, there's also a vote currently for your favourite look on the blog, so you can vote for your favourite to win an awesome voucher (and for their readers!)- I'd really appreciate it if you could head over and click the button here, or alternatively vote for one of the other gorgeous girls- everyone looked amazing!

How would you style pastel jeans?

  1. You have no idea how happy I am when you pop up on my dashboard! You always look so regal and beautiful Olivia, please dress me. I'm off to go wallow in self pity.. I joke I joke.. but you are suuper lovely! I've not owned a pair of jeans, let along pastel, in about six years plus! I really hate how they fit my thunder thighs!

    Lots of Love,

  5. This is stunning. The blue/green of the jeans and the peach jacket compliment each other perfectly. They'd look gorgeous with an oversized blouse and short collar necklace with heels for a dressed up look. Need to get my hands on a pair of these pronto!

  12. love these jeans. I've been wearing my mint pastel jeans loads. i also just bought some bright pink jeans which i LOVE.

    Zara have some amazing pastel shades in right now, my sister just got a lemon sorbet colour pair and they're lush.


    Out of interest do you have a tripod and use timer, or do you have a trusty family member on hand to take your snaps?

    ReplyDelete
  52. First of all: these jeans look amazing on you! The colour is divine and I love how you styled it with the orange jacket, so bold and stylish! I voted for you and your pretty look! :)
    Ehm, I wouldn't wear pastel jeans at all, as pastels are rather unflattering for curvy people, I think I would have to loose some pounds on my thighs first to pull off such a colour ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. How to do your hair, it's amazing! What products, curlers etc do you use? It's so voluminous! I'm jel, i want your hair! x
