I’m not wearing my skinny jeans as often as I used to. It literally got replaced by the many pairs of (denim) culottes and ripped boyfriend jeans that are taking over my wardrobe nowadays. They are bold and comfortable, but not super sexy – if you ask Thomas. So it was about time I found myself a new “second skin” aka the perfect skinny jeans…
Now I obviously don’t have the legs of Joan Smalls, nor her perfect toned body, but when she designs a capsule collection I’m naturally intrigued to find out more. And so I did. I tried a couple of the statement pieces from her bold and active-inspired True Religion capsule collection and came out with two favorites: the High Rise Halle and Solid Cropped sweatshirt. I would have loved to wear it “her way” – meaning just the top and pants – but New York weather wasn’t really allowing me to do that, so I tweaked the styling a bit in my advantage.
