Re Living A Mid 90s Trend Jeans Under Dresses

Do you remember jeans under dresses perhaps you even wore this trend? In 1996 I specifically remember my best friend wearing jeans under her Ghost slip dress, she looked fabulous. I adopted the style soon after and never looked back. Slip dresses faded from the scene along with wearing jeans under and it was no longer the mid 90’s. Trend alert! I have seen so many stylish older women, re wearing the trend, I thought I’d give it another go myself…

Jeans Under Dresses

Proud to say the jeans and dress I am wearing were already in my wardrobe and the bag is vintage. Continuing on with my mission to buy less and succeeding even with the sales being on! I did buy something in the Arket and Cos sale, more on them later. In this post its all about those Taryn Sandals from Lotus Shoes…

They also come in a Pink and a white…I want them all!Re living A Mid 90's Trend Jeans Under Dresses

 

My Verdict on Wearing the Taryn sandals:

I chose a neutral Black, because it will fit in with all my wardrobe, but not look like a ‘holiday sandal’ when I am wearing it at Tesco’s shopping. The sandal has a Velcro fastening at the heel, which makes it along with the leather lining, extremely comfortable. I am a size 5 and the Taryn fits true to size. I know I will wear and wear this one everywhere if summer actually turns up!

 

The Lotus Taryn sandal fits true to size.

Not Saving Clothes for Best!

The other ‘thing’ I am embracing this year is not saving my clothes for ‘Best’ I’m wearing my whole wardrobe and savouring every moment. You should try it too, it makes me happy. Now I’m just wondering if I should buy a pair of these Sandals in white? I’m sticking with all the neutrals this season…

    Such a cool look Ashley, the whole outfit, and the sandals. I used to wear this look a few years ago when I had a pair of gorgeous, white linen pants from Kookai. I haven’t seen that brand for ages – not where I live.

      Yes I used to wear this look all the time in the 90’s! I loved Kookai, but id probably be a little old for it today, I wonder where it went?

    Looking fabulous as ever Ashley and what an inspiring post!
    Yup always loved that look and still do it now as it’s great for layering and dealing with our unpredictable U.K. weather….plus it’s just a bit edgy which is always great.
    Shoes look really comfy which these days is a biggy for me!

    All the best
