I think I mentioned these biker jeans before. Well, here they are: New Look biker skinnies. Really good looking and its a bit fun having a bit of a biker look when you are pushing a double buggy to school and nursery. Emulating an outlaw when you very very much live sedately within the law! OK, no one would ever actually mistake me for an outlaw, but I love a little imaginary dressing up. Obviously I stop short of buying a leather jacket and adorning it with studs and biker gang mottos!
Back to reality… The New Look biker skinnies are £23, made of a soft stretchy cotton (28% polyester for good stretchiness), rather than a proper denim. There is also some fading, which is a good alternative to solid black. Size wise, they are true to size: I bought a 10, and they fit well. Expect to see them often! Although, I just discovered last night that they have been through the dryer (gulp), so I will report back if they didn’t survive.
I wore them in 2 different ways the other day:
Outfit 1: River Island cotton blend yellow jumper (love the colour, do not love the way it stretches out of shape during the day. Its days are, therefore, numbered) | White H&M cotton vest | New Look biker skinnies | Kurt Geiger Willow ankle boots (I have fallen in love with them all over again)
Outfit 2: H&M denim shirt, and the rest of the outfit is the same, as it was the same day. I liked both looks, but couldn’t find any sparkles to wear with them, so felt a bit bare. The Bolters have broken some of my sparkles while playing / exploring in my room, so I am a bit of a dull bird at the moment.
Hopefully you can see the seam detail in this photo.
Zoom zoom, happy riding!
