Another piece for my new magazine!..
Here at elleven we simply cant live without our best friend; the little black jean (LBJ); she comes in the long, tight, black, denim variety. You can go for high waist, skinny, straight or cropped and she will still make your bum look pert and your legs look fierce.
Teamed with a classic white tee for a casual day off, just shove on your favorite pair of kicks and your good to go. Feeling a bit spicy for a night out with the girls? You could even go for the newer version... the coated LBJ - think leather meets denim. Simply add a skinny heel, a chunky sparkly necklace and voila, Sandy from Grease, maybe without the hair though.
Next step is the DIY LBJ; slashing, yes all our own doing, make them this seasons on trend accessory by simply shredding them with a pair of scissors or a cheese grater. Just grab the knee and tear. These babies are any weather attire, as long as you don’t make the rips too big, there’s nothing cuter than little black jeans creeping out from underneath an oversized cocoon coat.
Kate Moss is always seen rocking a pair with her dusty leather jacket, and our fave lady new on the music scene, Ella Eyre is always seen sporting the black skinnies with her cracking pair of pins.
Ridiculously understated with never enough credit, make the LBJ your dirty little secret.
