Just when I think my wardrobe is literally stuffed full and cannot take anymore, another amazing collection comes along and I need it all (so sorry Benny, you’ll get wardrobe space at some point in the future, promise). This time, it’s John Lewis’ new AND/OR range – guys, it’s so good.
It’s centred around denim – my favourite thing in the world – and there are some seriously gorgeous pieces… The boyfriend jean in particular, which earned me many compliments when I took them for a spin last weekend. I really believe in the power of a good boyfriend jean – they’re more sexy than a skinny jean, IMHO. You can pair them with a good pair of heels and a white shirt, or team with trainers and an oversized jumper for ultimate cool girl chic. I love the stripe on this pair, too – it adds a cool, luxe twist.
The beach crop is cute and casual, too – it’s an easy, breezy Sunday look and so comfortable. Again, you can dress these up with heels, or keep it casual with white trainers. I loved it with the blue and white striped shirt dress from the AND/OR collection – I’m such a fan of big and oversized, this was one of my favourite looks to date and so fun to shoot!
The pieces available to style up the jeans from the collection are just as gorgeous. Bardot tops aren’t going anywhere (yay) and this white version with subtle stitching is so versatile… You can elevate the look with a boyfriend jean or culottes and sandals for a sunny summer’s day, or do city chic with a pair of frayed hem skinny jeans and animal print loafers.
Onto probably my favourite piece from the collection – this stunning, tasselled trophy jacket. Inspired by the atmosphere of a Moroccan Souk, it’s intricately detailed and instantly upgrades an outfit. I love how beautifully it moves, and, no word of a lie, I had FIVE people ask me ‘Where’s your jacket from?’ when I wore it to meetings yesterday.
Finishing off the AND/OR looks are lots of super cute accessories. The blue, tasselled court shoes have taken pride of place in my shoe cupboard for two reasons – 1. they’re gorgeous and 2. they’re so comfy… It honestly doesn’t feel like wearing heels. The matching tasselled, embellished clutch bag has also become one of my faves – it adds an exotic touch to any outfit and instantly elevates your look.
I worked with John Lewis, a brand I love and hope you do too, on this post. Thanks so much for reading!
