I know that like me, many of you have bought a pair of the Pure Collection velvet jeans. Or actually like me, several pairs! Each year they do a range of colours and they always sell out fast. There are still a few sizes and colours left in the full length style which comes in 3 lengths and sizes from 8 to 24 and there is more availability in colours and sizes in the cropped version – which will look great with a pair of heels over the Party season.
I think the reason why we have grown to love them so much is that you can dress them up with heels for parties or down during the day with boots. They look smarter than denim jeans but not as formal as a tailored trouser and the fit is perfect. Not too low cut and not too skinny, they work with heels and flats. This season Pure Collection kindly gifted me with a black pair. I’ve had other colours in previous seasons but for some reason never black, so I will be getting plenty of wear out of them, not just during Christmas, but throughout the winter too. Warmer than denim jeans, they work well with a cosy knit during the day too.
Here are a few of the ways I will be wearing mine…
For a relaxed dinner with friends I will be adding metallic accessories and a gold foil blouse.
I stumbled across this blouse and it looks so much more expensive than it was. In fact I didn’t even see it on the website.
For running around doing Festive chores I’m wearing the jeans with a sweater from a previous season which has a touch of blue metallic thread, layered over a frilled shirt. I’ve added a pop of Christmas red with my tote bag.
For drinks parties I’m adding sequins and a pair of sparkly shoes, not forgetting the red lips and nails.
This gorgeous T-shirt is covered with thousands of black and gold sequins and is an easy, relaxed way to add some party sparkle.
This relaxed but stylish top with its wide slash neck and a lurex thread is incredibly comfortable to wear but still dressy enough for an evening event.
Finally with my favourite sweater of the season, mixing textures with this cosy ribbed knit, I’ve added a pair of tan velvet boots to break up the monochrome.
These jeans will work with almost any of the tops and knits I have in my wardrobe. Have you bought a pair and if so how will you be wearing yours?
