It's All In the (Good) Jeans

“I’m wearing a pair of wide-leg denim pants with side buttons...I like how versatile this piece is and can be used to create different looks effortlessly. I tend to lean towards relaxed silhouettes, and love experimenting with unique, edgy pieces, to create fresh, new looks. For a no-brainer OOTD, I pair my jeans with a tube or a crop top: basically, anything short and snug. The scarves I’ve used here—one as a headgear and the other as a top— are both vintage, stolen from my mom’s closet. They added just the right pop of print and colour. I’ve kept the make-up minimal, the way I usually like it, with a tinge of blush for a fresh look...teamed with chunky gold earrings. Shooting this image was a challenge: for the perfect angle, I perched my phone on a pile of books on top of a chair—and had to keep running back and forth after every click to ensure I got the right shot. The notebook I’ve used here isn’t just a prop, it also signifies my boundless love for stationary: my not-soguilty pleasure.”

“Jeans have always been my favourite go-to option! I have amassed many pieces, in all kinds of fits. But I swear by my stovepipe pair—it is so comfortable! For this shoot, I decided to layer a pair of distressed jeans with a denim jacket. Denimon-denim is a big trend, and my current favourite. It’s great how denim—not just jeans, but also jackets, shorts, skirts, overalls, et al—has emerged as something you can wear anywhere, as opposed to the casual, anti-establishment image it once had. The book you see on my head in the photograph is The Golden Wayne W Dyer Collection. It’s a three-in-one volume, given to me by one of my teachers, and essentially talks about the power of intention, inspiration, and how to have a paradigm shift of thoughts. I like books that help me become a better person, and this is one of them.”
