How I Dress When I’m Stuck for Inspiration

J Brand Skinny Jeans Ella Gregory

As I’ve mentioned countless times before, I don’t enjoy dressing for Autumn/Winter. Although the fall collections often offer more variety, I aways feel constrained by practical matters, such as staying warm and dry. So between the months of October and March I spend a lot of time staring blankly at my wardrobe, hoping to receive a jolt of inspiration. And nine times out of ten inspiration fails to arrive. Which is why I always end up returning to the same tried-and-tested simple fall outfit…

My simple fall outfit formula = J Brand ‘Maria’ skinny jeans + a lightweight knit + a leather biker jacket + statement flats or ankle boots + a classic cross-body bag + a colourful scarf

You’ve got love a bit of fashion math. Am I right, ladies?

J Brand’s ‘Maria’ skinny jeans are the one item of clothing I couldn’t live without. They’re so comfortable – boasting the perfect amount of stretch – and the high-rise waistline is super flattering. I usually wear the ‘Maria’ jeans in black or a classic indigo, but this season I’ve expanded my collection and added a midnight blue wash to the mix. I discovered the colour-way whilst doing a bit of window shopping on Farfetch and couldn’t say no…

Next thing you know they were sitting in my virtual basket, then hanging in my wardrobe. I love the fact they’re almost black, but not quite, as it means I can wear them with chocolate brown boots.
