Well now that I am newly in love with the tie-dyed turquoise jeans, I had better do something with them!
How about I find a few things in the wardrobe and pull together a few outfits?!
Once I brought them in off the line I had a quick look in the wardrobe to see if anything would work with them in their revamped form and this is what I’ve come up with. And I think with a little more thought, I probably could have come up with a fair few more!
Tie-Dye to Die For – Now that the colour has been toned done thanks to tie-dying process, these jeans look perfect with this sweater. It’s a really nice light-weight that I bought because of the cut-outs on the sleeves. I’ve dressed the look up a little with the scarf, handbag and shoes so it could be a really nice evening look.
Tie-Dyed Summer – We had to have at least one summer look as these jeans now make me think of the ocean even more than they did before! The shirt has a scalloped edge to it which you can’t really see under the lace overlay, but it is really lovely. I paired it all up with a scarf, a stack of bangles and the little clutch then finished it off with the sandles to complete that summer lovin’.
Tie-Dyed Luncheon Date! – And just for the challenge I wanted to see if I could come up with a look that could just about pass for the office. Worst case, I’ll be wearing this one to meet the Fashion Sister from a Different Mother for lunch! The little top under the blazer is a perfect match for the newly tie-dyed jeans. Over top there is the nude coloured blazer from a suit I had made in Hong Kong back in October. I have rolled up the sleeves to give it a more relaxed and casual look. Again there is a stack of bangles, the owl vintage necklace and the neutral clutch, which all match the nude patent heels! I love this look and can’t wait to wear it.
Tie-Dying to Relax – As I said, I could have gone on and on. This one is a little casual. Good for the weekend or meeting friends for lunch. The TieDyed jeans are paired up with a taupe/nude short-sleeved shirt, a lovely scarf and purple jewelry (a couple of necklaces and my purple jade bangles). I’ve grabbed my well used Coach handbag and added in the nude suede wedges to keep the whole look fresh and relaxed.
Pastel – You’ll have to forgive this last shot. I took it myself and it’s really not that great but I wanted to do my “ode to pastels”. As I’m really not a girlie-girl, the simple fact that I could put together a whole look around pastels is a miracle! I have layered a pale peach coloured T-shirt under a pale yellow cardigan. Added in a couple of vintage butterfly broaches, an opal necklace and finished with the nude suede wedges. You can’t really see in the photo but my finger nails are a shimmery pale blue. This is another look that I am surprised that I really like and am looking forward to wearing! Yikes! Don’t tell me I’m going girlie!?
This whole exercise has been a great surprise and it nearly makes me want to see what other items I could repurpose, revamp or revitalise!
I really love how these turned out! In fact, I think I will wear them to the city tonight. Taking the Fashion Mister out as a late b-day present to see Ross Noble, possibly one of the funniest comedians of all time!
Any thoughts on other ways I could wear these jeans?
