I totally forgot about these pictures, and amidst the moving saga and life’s curve balls, what a lovely surprise it was to find them. Especially before winter arrives and they become irrelevant. You could totally wear this outfit during winter in Durban, but not Jo’burg. I am nervously awaiting my first Jo’burg winter!
I love loose fitting, dare I say, baggy clothing. It’s comfortable, practical and, if worn correctly, can really make a fashion statement. This look is hardly revolutionary, but so easy to pull off. I will admit, my height helps me avoid looking bulky, but I’ve seen shorter girls rock this look too!
I bet you can’t even tell that these jeans are actually men’s jeans, and a large size at that! This takes me back to when I was in my teen years, constantly stealing my dad’s old jeans and customising them for myself.
I usually wear these jeans above my hip with a belt, creating a high-waisted look. The legs are extremely long, so I have to roll them up a few times. But you can’t go wrong with a solid pair of vintage jeans, and even if you have to wear a belt with them or roll the legs up, it’s so worth it!
