The Girlfriend vs Boyfriend Topman Style Off



A couple of weeks ago, Topman challenged Karl and me to a style off - who could style up a pair of Topman jeans the best?! I'll admit, I've never thought to shop in the men's section for jeans before or anything at all for that matter so I was a bit worried. Would they fit me right? Would I like any of the styles? Would I even suit them? Karl of course was convinced he would beat me and we had many laughs poking fun at each other throughout the whole shoot and the days before! Anyway I'll get straight into our looks and you can be the judge at who won in the style stakes!

*BLACK VINTAGE SLIM JEANS: c/o TOPMAN / TRAINERS: CONVERSE / T-SHIRT: TOPMAN

Okay so Karl's up first with his look. Karl's build is quite bulky (read: protein shake crazy) so he can struggle to get a fit of jeans that actually do fit and are flattering. Skinny fit jeans are a no-go for him but he also doesn't like straight jeans as he doesn't feel like they fit his frame right (picky or what?!) so he opted for the Topman slim fit jeans in black. We all know that black jeans are essential for everyone no matter your gender, style or build and they will see you through virtually any occasion or style that may come in. Karl's style is quite simple so he chose an all black ensemble and who can blame him? Everyone loves an all black outfit every now and then so I actually liked it. I think all black is quite mysterious and looks quite edgy teamed with his cracking beard. (I love beards). Although we are competing in the style off, Karl's simple but edgy choice definitely gets a thumbs up from me!

*BLACK SUPER SPRAY ON SKINNY JEANS: c/o TOPMAN / STRIPED TEE: ZARA / *SALMON BAG: C/O URBAN OUTFITTERS (similar) / BLACK CAPE BLAZER: MISSGUIDED (similar) / *WHITE HEELS: c/o NEW LOOK

Now onto my outfit... Like Karl, I kept the monochrome theme up but added a little subtle bit of colour with the mini salmon bag. I like to think of my look as a smart casual type look. The blazer and the skinny jeans look quite formal together but the relaxed tee and the white sandals dress it down just enough to be wearable as an everyday outfit. I went for the super skinny spray on Topman jeans and honestly they may have become my new favourite pair of jeans. The fact that they are from the men's section hasn't made a difference at all - they're just as comfortable, just as stylish and fit just as well as a pair from the ladies section. It's safe to say I was pleasantly surprised with just how much I love these jeans; it shows just how versatile the Topman jeans are and I know I'll definitely be more inclined to look in the men's section for that perfect piece from now on! 

Would you ever consider buying jeans from the opposite section? Who do you think has won the style off or is it a tie?!

  13. You both look great but I think your outfit is my favourite. I've got quite a 'womanly' bum to say the least so I don't think mens jeans would fit me but if I could find I pair I'd buy them for the bigger pockets alone!

    I love the sandals too!

    Both of your outfits are simple but classic. And work so well together!
    I'd love to do a style-off with the boy!

  17. I absolutely love the idea behind this! Such a cute shoot with you both in monochrome! I love it! You both styled your looks very well, but I think the sandals won it for me! I definitely think Amy styled the jeans better! Though I bet those sandals would look cute on Karl too!
    As for shopping in the men's section - this is something I've always done! I use the whole shop, especially if I'm not looking for something especially form-fitting.
    I loved this post, it's great!
