30 Ways To Wear: Sass and Bide Chevron Print Playman Skinny Jeans

These Sass and Bide Playman skinny jeans have such a fun print! Sometimes the bold chevron can seem a little tricky to wear. While I don't quite love every one of the 32 outfits I've worn with them, I've really been reaching for them a lot more often this past year as I feel I'm finding the best ways to style them recently. It's great to be able to put this 30 ways to wear post together and share just how versatile printed jeans can be - you can definitely rewear them over and over!


30 Ways To Wear: Sass & Bide Chevron Print Skinny Jeans

Cost Per Wear

I bought these in June 2016, a second hand buy on eBay. Just $28.50, including postage. Not a bad price for Sass and Bide jeans, and at 32 wears that's just 95 cents a wear so far. I think perhaps the original seller had a few of the same "what do I wear these with" struggles I did in the early years! I've tried print mixing now and then, but over time I've realised if I keep it simple and stick to basic block colour pieces with these jeans I really love them in my outfits. 

It's taken me 5 years to get over 30 wears with these jeans. They are certainly not just "throw on and go" jeans, and do require a little more thought before I wear them. But they are so fun, and I still have so many outfit ideas for these. They are definitely keepers in my wardrobe even if it took me a couple years to recognise just how versatile they could be! Particularly this current year. I felt like they were on frequent repeat, as I stuck with the "pair solids with prints" rule to build outfits I loved.

Since I  have such a range of outfits with these jeans I've tried to split up the outfits into go-to outfit formulas as well as some easy colour pairings, in case you have a similar pair of grey and black printed jeans you're trying to find outfit inspiration for.


Chevron Print Jeans With Blue and Green

Blue is my favourite colour and of course I think it goes with everything! I am slowly warming up to green and trying to wear more of it in my wardrobe. With the neutral black and grey chevron print of the jeans a bright blue, teal, or even mint top works well against the print.


Colourful Cardigans and Chevron Print Skinny Jeans

Just like the colourful blue and green outfits above, these follow a similar outfit formula. This time, the bright block colour is the cardigan though! While I really like the bold combination of red with the black and grey, you'll see I wear quite a lot of pink and purple with these jeans too!



Neutral Layers With Black and Grey Chevron Jeans

A failsafe "I'm not sure what to wear with a bold printed piece" choice is neutrals! And while I can never seem to nail a completely monochromatic outfit as I always add in a little extra colour - these jeans look so good with neutral blacks and greys, echoing the colours in the print.



Citrus Brights With Chevron Print Jeans

Another much more colourful set of outfits! Similar to the blues and greens I first shared, I find different shades of citrus brights work well with these jeans - from a bright mustard yellow, a more pastel peach, a mango yellow or a bold bright orange, the colours really pop against the denim! I think that the grey chevron print on these jeans helps stop an orange and black combo from looking too Halloween-y as well.


Double Denim Outfits With Printed Jeans

My usual method for waring double denim is to keep it safe and stick to completely different shades - so blue denim jackets (and even my white one) work well with these printed jeans! It's good to stick a bright top in between too for even more contrast between the different shades of denim.


Bright Accessories With Chevron Print Jeans

Maybe bright tops and cardigans are a little too bold for you to try with some statement printed jeans like these. So why not introduce a smaller amount of colour with a scarf or bag? Or both - as I've done in the first and third outfits with the matchy-matchy scarf and bag. Of course if you're loving all the colour, you could try a bright cardigan and a bright scarf together like that outfit at the end there.


Leather Jackets With Black and White Printed Jeans

These jeans are so easy to layer up in winter - printed jeans and a leather jacket is a staple outfit for a cold day! You don't have to stick to black jackets either - a colourful one like that cobalt blue works well too.



Pink And Purple Outfits With Chevron Print Jeans

These outfits are really combinations of everything above! Bright accessories, tops or colourful cardigans, in pink or purple, or sometimes both. I love pink and purple with these jeans, and with the neutral colour scheme of the grey chevron on the black jeans means you can easily wear more than one colour with them. And pink and purple go together so well!

Weekday Wear Link Up: Purple Double Denim Skinny Jeans and Tees Outfits

Layering up with double denim, but keeping it colourful with touches of purple for some winter outfits recently in Brisbane. It was a cold week, even for winter, and definite jeans weather!


What I wore:

navy and purple double denim jeans outfit with white jacket printed scarf and chloe paraty bag | awayfromblue

printed scarf, white denim jacket and Chloe periwinkle small Paraty | away from blue


JacketCotton On girlfriend denim jacket in whitehaven
Scarf: Fashion Scarf Girl navy and white geo print tassel scarf
Tee: Jeanswest Sophie navy v-neck tee
JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit! I wanted to wear these purple jeans again - a fun pair I've already hit 30 wears with, but that were definitely overdue another wear! I like them with navy, and since I hadn't worn this navy v-neck tee with them before it seemed like and obvious choice. The white denim jacket lightened the outfit up a bit as well and gave me a little extra warmth.

I realised that morning I'd need to add a scarf to the planned outfit though! While the white denim jacket is more of a creamy white I think this white geo print scarf worked so well with the outfit, with the navy print and navy tassels against the navy tee. With the practical New Balance sneakers too it was a good outfit for a busy day, with the school drop off, helping in my son's classroom, and taking Cooper to the vet for a senior health check before school pickup and sports in the afternoon.

Even though the periwinkle blue Chloe Paraty doesn't match any of the navy shades in the outfit I think it compliments it well and this bag has been on heavy repeat lately! Big enough for the essentials, mine and my son's water bottles, and even a little snack for him.


Last worn: white denim jacket, navy v-neck tee, purple skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Chloe periwinkle Paraty bag. First time I've worn the scarf as it was a Christmas present.

Other ways to wearwhite denim jacket and maxi skirt, navy v-neck tee and olive shorts, purple skinny jeans worn 30 ways, Chloe periwinkle Paraty bag and sundress.

Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagChloe periwinkle small Paraty


Why I wore it:


Another double denim outfit, with my printed Sass and Bide Playman skinny jeans this time and a pale blue denim moto jacket. The lilac tee added the purple to this outfit, although just like the outfit above I'd realised in the morning I'd need to add a scarf too. 

I've mentioned before I struggle a bit wearing prints with these chevron print skinny jeans so I took a little extra time trying to find a nice scarf to wear with this. In the end I went for this fun hot pink textured one that I wrapped up around my neck like a snood to cover the v-neck of the tee and keep me cosy. I like pink and purple and blue together, so I ended up loving this last minute addition to combat the chill.

Again the New Balance sneakers for a day heavy on driving with multiple stops as we ran a few errands, and again stopping at the vets. My knee was definitely feeling it by the end of the day, especially after we had to go out again after school pick up to replace the clothes airer that had broken just as I'd been putting laundry on it to dry 😂

How You Can Wear It:

My golden rule for double denim is to keep the shades as different as possible - and colourful or printed jeans paired with a classic denim jacket is a good way to implement that!

Two Ways To Wear: Sass and Bide Playman Printed Skinny Jeans

Near the end of June I stumbled across these jeans on ebay. I try not to buy things too close to the end of the month so I can get a few wears out of them before the month ends, but I really liked the print on these and the bargain price so snapped them up. Wore them pretty close together to meet my goal of two wears out of everything I buy within a month.

What I wore:

Sass and Bide Playman Printed Skinny Jeans black clothes red Alexander McQueen Skull scarf bright accessory | Away From Blue

handheld smooshy Mulberry foggy grey buffalo leather Alexa satchel | AwayFromTheBlue
JacketAsos Black by Markus Lupfer printed leather jacket
ScarfAlexander McQueen red skull-print modal and cashmere-blend scarf
TopJeanswest 'Tilda' black shirt
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans (new purchase)
ShoesRMK Chester black ankle boots (on sale!)
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

While these are a bit of a statement jean, their first outing was actually a pretty boring errand running day! I was eager to wear them soon after they arrived though. Even though the Mulberry Alexa is a purpley-grey I went with the red scarf although they don't match as I thought it added a nice bit of colour to all of the black.


I tucked the jeans into the boots but it wasn't a great idea, as there are zipper details on the back it wasn't the most comfortable way to wear them.


Last worn: leather jacket, Alexander McQueen skull scarf, black top, ankle boots, Mulberry Alexa. First time I've worn the jeans as they are a recent purchase.

Other ways to wearleather jacket and a shift dress, skull scarf and plaid, black top and a baby bump, ankle boots in spring, Mulberry Alexa and a maxi skirt.

What I wore:

ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs scarf in Island pine-print
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats (on sale!)
BagMulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey

Why I wore it:

Layered up or a really chilly day! None of my scarves seemed to look quite right next to the chevron print on these jeans but with the low neckline on this top I wanted something around my neck. Decided to wrap this one around my neck a few times to keep it away from the print and stop them 'competing' with each other. It would have been better if I'd spent a little extra time tying the scarf into  a proper snood style so it stayed in place, as it kept unravelling and driving me crazy.

I regretted all the warm layers when we got to the library. We went for the baby and toddler session and they'd heated up the room for the tiny babies. I was pulling everything off and wishing I'd gone with my short sleeved wrap top instead!


As it's the second time I've worn these jeans, my purchase review:

They are proving trickier to style than I imagined and don't work well with ankle boots, but I really do like the print on these and I enjoy wearing them. Printed jeans aren't as easy to throw on as blue jeans, but it's good to change things up a little and I don't mind thinking a little more about what to wear with these. I have a few more outfits in mind for them, they are definitely sticking around. Jeans aren't something I have a shortage of but I've been looking for more printed pants lately so I'm pleased with these.


Last worn: grey longline cardigan, Marc Jacobs printed scarf, blue wrap top, printed skinny jeans (above), silver ballet flats, Mulberry Alexa (above).

Other ways to weargrey longline cardigan and flares, Marc Jacobs printed scarf in the office, blue wrap top and a maxi skirt, silver ballet flats and a tartan pencil skirt, Mulberry Alexa and denim shorts.

Two Ways To Wear Marigold Orange Tops With Skinny Jeans

I've been wearing a lot more bright colours lately! Loving yellow as always, but there are a lot of cute orange pieces around for spring too and so I put this post together with two ways I've recently worn marigold orange tops. Both with jeans, but with different colour schemes.

What I wore:

sass and bide playman chevron print skinnies double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag | away from theblue

awayfromblue Instagram | double denim jean jacket marigold orange tee printed sass and bide playman skinnies and mini mac

Jacket: Jeanswest Kitty denim biker jacket
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

This was a really fun outfit! These Sass and Bide chevron print skinny jeans make such a statement on their own, but I thought I'd try the marigold tee with them for something really bold. I did end up adding the denim jacket on top too so it wasn't too much together, and it helped keep me cosy as it was quite a windy day! I really like the double denim with such different coloured denim pieces together, I thought it went well and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag and necklace tied in with the blue of the jacket. Blue pairs so nicely with orange!

A comfortable jeans and tee outfit for the school run, spending time scootering around with my son and walking Cooper, and then sports in the evening.





What I wore:

marigold orange dolman kmart top with thrifted green skinny jeans Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack

Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | Kmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold with green skinny jeans and bright blue backpack

TopKmart short sleeve textured dolman top in marigold (new purchase)
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue

Why I wore it:

A little more of a colourful combination with this recently purchased top! Admittedly when I ordered it online I thought it was more mustard than orange, despite the marigold name for the colour. It's a stunning bright colour though and oh so comfortable - I saw it working well for the rare zoom meetings I have at work where I want to look bright and cheerful but also be comfortable too, the slouchy oversized style and dolman sleeves are just perfect for that.

As it is such a voluminous top I wanted to balance it out with skinny jeans, but also really have fun with the orange colour so I decided to try these thrifted Asos green jeans with it. Such a fun combination!

The daggy sneakers and the practical Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack were because I headed out with the kids for the day, making the most of the nice weather and the pupil free day to explore along our favourite trail again, visit a new one, and just keep the kids out the house for a few hours so hubby could work from home in peace and quiet! I was so glad I had these comfortable shoes, especially on the second trail as my injured knee was really complaining!

May have been a bit overly colourful for hiking around some trails, considering we didn't bump into anyone else but a snake all day, but it was nice to try a new colour combo. And thankfully the snake slithered away quickly!


Last worn: navy tassel necklace, green skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. First time I've shared the top on the blog as it's a recent purchase.

How You Can Wear It:

There are so many different shades of orange around at the moment for spring - it's a really fun colour to wear! You can try it with neutrals like blue denim jackets or black jeans, or go a little bolder and pair it with bright blues and green denim!

Orange Tees, Black Denim And Blue Julian Backpack

Some much cooler spring days last month meant layering up my jeans and tee outfits a little more with a light jacket and cardigan, in outfits I had a hard time getting a good photo of!

What I wore:

orange leopard print tee with black nobody denim skinny jeans light jacket julian backpack | awayfromblue

black jacket with Rebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: thrifted black Emerson drawstring waist utility jacket
Necklace: silver heart long pendant necklace
TeeSass and Bide 'New Day Rising' tee in orange leopard print
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue


Why I wore it:

I feel this outfit looks quite unimpressive in the pics but I really loved it! I'm not sure why I don't wear this neon orange leopard print tee more often, it's just so fun! And I felt it really popped with all the black, but that the leopard print stopped it looking like a Halloween-y combination.

Despite my frown in the photos (the sun came out from behind the clouds just as I started clicking and I pulled this face in every photo!) I was really happy and comfortable in this most of the morning, until the wind picked up and I started to feel the cold, even after unbuttoning and rolling down the sleeves on this jacket. I was regretting not wearing a jacket or thicker cardigan by then. Thankfully we only had a couple hours at the park before heading off to do a free craft activity with the kids in a shopping centre where I was back to appreciating this light jacket again, and rolling up the sleeves! Definitely swapped out the jacket for sitting on the sidelines at sports that evening though for something a little warmer.

For simplicity and for ease walking around the park and playground I wore my Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack - it fits hats and water bottles and snacks for us all easily.


Last worn: black lightweight jacket, heart necklace, neon leopard print tee, black skinny jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack.

Other ways to wearblack lightweight jacket and stripes, neon leopard print tee and light jeans, black skinny jeans and blazer, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack and shorts.



What's Inside My Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack






What I wore:

grey cardigan with pastel peach tee chevron print sass bide playman jeans sneakers | awayfromtheblue


Jacket: Paper Scissors grey wrap cardigan
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (c/o)
Tee: Asos peach pastel orange v-neck tee from my sister's wardrobe
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagRebecca Minkoff Julian nylon backpack in bright blue


Why I wore it:

As you can see from the pics, this was quite a breezy day! I was glad I'd worn a cardigan on this day! Again it ended up being an orange and black combination, with the chevron print jeans and this peach tee I scored from my sister's wardrobe clear out. I liked this outfit, but looking at the photos I'm not sure the tee is the best colour on me. I'll keep it around and try it out in a few more outfits before I decide.

Wore the Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack again as we had a little hike with the kids around a local trail, and this was the most comfortable way to carry all our snacks and water bottles. Our plan for the day was to get out early, so we could be back home before the predicted rain set in for the next few days. Thankfully the rain never turned up but it made me feel a little bad we hadn't planned more things to do outdoors for the day. The kids were happy at home playing board games in the afternoon though.


Last worn: grey cardigan, turquoise necklace, Sass and Bide printed jeans, New Balance sneakers (above), Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack (above). First time I've worn the tee as I gained it from my sister's wardrobe clear out.

Other ways to weargrey cardigan and purple jeans, Sass and Bide printed jeans and white tee, Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack and midi dress.



How You Can Wear It:


Orange and black isn't just a Halloween colour combination! Try adding some prints, greys, or a bright accessory in a contrasting colour like I have with this bright blue backpack to make it suitable for other days of the year.

Magnificent 8 Statement Pants: Pink and Black Jeans Outfits With Balenciaga Part Time Bag

For this quarter's Magnificent 8 posts, all 8 ladies decided to style some statement pants. We are all styling our different pants in unique ways, scroll on down to see the outfits I wore to meet the theme and find links to the other ladies blogs. Because you can be stylish at any age!


I don't actually have a lot of pants in my wardrobe - jeans are my staple for cooler days when tights under a dress or skirt won't cut it! But with some autumn weather finally arriving a month or so late in April in Brisbane, it was the perfect time to wear some of my more statement jeans and meet the theme.

What I wore:





Necklace: Tiffany & Co silver 5th Avenue notes heart pendant necklace
TeeCotton On deep v tee in washed desert rose
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
Shoes:  New Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH


Why I wore it:

Refusing to believe that it's cardigan weather as we've had such a warm autumn so far, I didn't add a topper on this outfit, thinking jeans and a tee was warm enough for this autumn day. It was a bit chilly on the school run though, and with a bit of a breeze I was wishing I'd picked up a jacket or cardigan whenever we reached a shady section on our bike ride around the park. It was perfectly warm in the sun though for jeans and a tee, but running errands after I wished again I'd worn a jacket.

Not an outfit fail though as I liked this outfit otherwise! These chevron print Sass and Bide skinny jeans are really fun to wear. I've tried wearing printed pieces with them a few times in the past, with mixed results. A plain block colour piece, like this pink v-neck tee, is a much better pairing as it lets the printed jeans be the only statement with the outfit.

Carried my black Balenciaga part time bag to fit snacks and water bottles - and since my youngest's latest birthday he's old enough to join his big brother at sports on a Monday evening. This bag is plenty big enough for all of our water bottles for that.


Last worn: pink v-neck tee, aqua earrings, silver Tiffany necklace, Sass and Bide chevron print jeans, New Balance sneakers, Balenciaga black part time bag.

Other ways to wearpink v-neck tee and maxi skirtSass and Bide chevron print jeans and leather jacket, Balenciaga black part time bag worn 30 ways.

30 Ways To Wear: Balenciaga Part Time Bag





What I wore:




Necklace: silver heart long pendant necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual plus Cora purpleheart and mother of pearl watch c/o JORD
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH


Why I wore it:

What a day this was! Had a simple relaxing weekend planned, with a bike ride around the track at the playground in the morning, as well as a stop at the library. Afterwards we grabbed some more soil (and some snags for lunch!) at Bunnings so we could plant the rest of our Woolworths discovery garden seedlings outside. Actually managed to raise quite a few seeds to the 'ready for planting' stage, hopefully I can keep them alive this time and get a better harvest than we did a couple years back where the smoke from the bushfires and the heatwaves killed everything off!

Unfortunately what was supposed to be a quiet afternoon planting in the garden turned into a minor trip to the hospital for my son after he managed to injure himself! Thankfully we were seen and got back home fairly quickly, in time for dinner and a movie to help us all de-stress and recover.

Again this outfit is black and pink, this time around with a printed top and plain jeans. These bright magenta jeans are also from Sass and Bide and one of the few pairs of straight legged jeans I have in my wardrobe. I like the bright statement magenta colour and I find these really wearable! To let the pants shine again I kept the rest of my outfit simple with the neutral black and white striped tank, the black Balenciaga part time bag again and my black and white Converse.


How You Can Wear It:

Statement jeans are easy to pair with basic tops in your wardrobe - a colourful v-neck tee works well with printed skinny jeans. For brighter print-free denim, try a printed top instead. A neutral will really help the bright jeans pop!

Jeans, Leather Jackets and Colourful Knits With Balenciaga Bags | Weekday Wear Link Up

Back in July, winter had truly arrived in Brisbane and the coldest morning in years had us all shivering, and me reaching for all the cosy layers! A leather jacket is a winter staple, as is a good knit. These thin marl knits are perfect for layering under to stay cosy, and they are cute and colourful too!


What I wore:

Necklace: Roie Designs multi chain layered beaded necklace
Jumper: SES fashions mustard marle knit jumper
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India


Why I wore it:

I thought a necklace was a nicer fit for this outfit than a scarf - the chevron print of the jeans can be tricky to wear prints with. With it being just 15 degrees (Celsius) on the way to drop my son off at school though I really regretted not adding a scarf to this! It was thankfully a day we didn't have to be outside too much for, with indoor sports for the little one after school drop off and then sports again for both kids in the evening after school pickup. By then I had added a scarf to my outfit though, such a chilly night!

Surprisingly I haven't worn this mustard marl knit with the chevron print jeans before! I thought it was a nice combo, and even with a layer on under the knit the looser fit of this leather jacket means it accommodated the knit nicely. With the black jacket and black jeans I really liked the added black with the necklace - this one hasn't been worn in so long, it was definitely overdue a wear!

The fun turquoise Balenciaga bag was a great pop with the black and mustard too, a nice way to add just a little more colour to my outfit.


Last worn: black moto leather jacket, multi chain necklace, mustard marl knit, chevron print skinny jeansConverse, Balenciaga first bag.

Why I wore it:

This outfit was even more colourful than the one above with the bright jeans and knit. And this time around, I learnt my lesson and wore a scarf!

Again I wore another thin marl knit - this cobalt blue one looks great with the magenta jeans, I really like blues with these jeans! And the geometric print tassel scarf seemed like a nice match with the cobalt. The black leather jacket has some blue and grey floral print on it too, but I think it's so subtle the prints work well together. Went even more colourful with the big purple Balenciaga work bag. It wasn't a day I had to carry around a lot with me for - a couple errands, the school run and a vet visit again for Cooper. I just felt like carrying this big bag again as I love it and it's so rarely worn nowadays. It used to be a staple for working in the office, back before we had the hybrid ways of working that mean we mostly work from home now!

How You Can Wear It:

Picking some colourful knits can make cold weather dressing more cheerful - even if you do layer them with darker neutrals like the black leather jackets. You can let the knit be a pop of colour like the first outfit, or pair it with colourful jeans and a scarf like in the second outfit.
