I always think you can afford to invest in one part of an outfit if you stick to a budget for the rest. Hence this outfit is all about the jeans, a gorgeous skinny style with a light to dark fade down the leg, from James Jeans at the Matches Sale. They may be over £100 a pair, but with a pair of shoes than cost less than £20, the cost balances out. The key to this look is toughening up the pink with zips and clunky accessories. The necklace adds some whimsy to stop it looking too 'done'.
