This week in my Style With Gail Facebook group I talked to my members about the latest jean styles and how to wear them. In a group poll, straight leg jeans came out as the most worn style. So I thought I would share three straight leg jean outfits for spring 23 that everyone might like.
I can totally see why, after a lot of us have worn skinny jeans for so long, that this looser fitting classic jean is so popular. It suits all body types, with a few adjustments to suit proportions, but hourglass, apple and strawberry (inverted triangle) wear it very well.
Ideally, you’re looking for a fit that ends on your ankle, or about one inch above, for a contemporary look. Great with boots and trainers for every day wear, I’m really looking forward to getting rid of socks and choosing loafers and heels this spring.
Of course, the weather isn’t playing ball at the moment and its sleeting while I write this, so my first outfit choice below includes a leather look long coat and boots. Right now, you’ll need it. There are lovely layers here and items that you’ll either have already, or if bought, will make great staples in your year-round wardrobe. I’ve added in a silk scarf and my intention is for it to be tied around the handbag strap for some added colour and a polished look.
Three Looks for Spring 23
Ecru Turtleneck Long Sleeve Top, Mango
Oversize Leather Effect Trench Coat, Mango
Angular Cat Eye Sunglasses, H&M
For the next outfit look I’ve picked up on the French trend that is everywhere this spring. Adding a pop of much needed spring time colour with a simple T. Shirt, I’ve paired with a boucle Chanel-style jacket. A pair of kitten heels and metallic shoulder bag give a polished finish and silver jewellery are the icing on the cake.
Black Leather Kitten Heel, Zara
Maxi Floral Tweed Jacket, Mango
My last look offers a touch more glitz and I’d love to have this for when I go out for drinks with the girls, or my husband takes me out! It’s all about the texture here and the cream, tonal look gives a sense of luxury. I love the mix of wool, sequin and gold, which feels elevated, yet easy to wear. Ballet pumps are very much in vogue this spring and I love the armband which will show off otherwise naked arms.
