Today, I'm showcasing one of the most intricately detailed pairs of jeans with which I have ever come into contact. O_o o_O It originated in Japan, based on the tag info and it's a real beauty. You'll see some closeups of the overlapping strips of fabric and lace in the photos below. So amazing!
Yeah, that's right. That's a f*cking pot leaf, bro! Haha. Greatness! :D I'm really tall, so it may not be obvious, but the pants are actually high waisted and have a slight flare at the cuffs. That quality, along with the florals, fringe and the pot leaf give this piece a 70s hippie boho flare that I love. The details are quite stunning in real life, so I decided to wear only neutral colors to allow those intricacies to shine.
I did some simple layering with a fringe poncho, thick infinity scarf and buttoned shrug sweater. You'll notice the different colors in each piece create a bit of a layer cake effect. I really like combining different shades of the same hue. When layering dark pieces, I think differentiation is important. Textures and reflective fabrics help prevent everything from looking overly homogenous.
These jeans created the perfect canvas for what I consider to be a boho chic look with a dark edge. :P Oh and these pants are for sale! If you think you have what it takes to rock these threads, buy it!
