If you had told me over a decade ago that there would be a period in my life where I go all shades of crazy for embellished jeans, I would have blank-starred the heck out of that conversation. As fashion does, I too came a long way to loving a whole lot of details on my jeans. Yep, the decision to look beyond the currently reigning thrill of ripped denim pants has been made and I am all in. After consulting a few dependable sources, the only sense centred on unique styles offered by Cipo and Baxx.
Designed in Germany, Cipo and Baxx jeans are nothing short of a paroxysm of detailed personality. Not the overwhelming kind, just enough to add on forming an identity and, well, visibly stand out from the crowd all while looking every bit like an informed stylopolitan.
I totally understand how bringing one of these babies into one’s wardrobe could require a bit of persuasion (this is me assuming the rad role of an educator here). The way I see it, there are only two points worth considering when styling a pair of your choice. One: you could look into the darling preferred theme of wearing everything else in very minimal tones. You know, so as to allow the jeans’ detailmania a revel in supremacy. Dignified; an easy option, but oh-so dignified. The second option: I will promote to the very core. You see, I believe that choosing embellished items like these sometimes calls for one to step up to the plinth and rid of all pressures. They key is to integrate them into your wardrobe as you would with any personality piece.
In these pics below, I wore five different pairs as I would throughout the week when I go about my business.
DAY 01: Daytime launches.
DAY 02: Sundowners with the boys.
DAY 03: Thrifting for accessories.
DAY 04: Brief meetings with a client.
DAY 05: Sourcing and stuff.
