When it comes to fashion, simple certainly doesn’t have to mean boring – as the lovely Rochelle Humes just proved.
The This Morning star took to Instagram earlier this week to share a picture of an outfit that encapsulates off-duty cool. The look comprises two chic items that should have a place in any capsule wardrobe: a crisp white shirt, and a pair of well-fitting jeans.
And while Rochelle may look a million dollars in the outfit, it won’t cost you anywhere near that to replicate it, as it’s part of the presenter’s ongoing partnership with New Look, and you can get both pieces for under the £50 mark.
The poplin shirt, which also comes in pale blue, is priced at £15.99, and reinvents the classic white shirt by giving it a fresh, oversized silhouette. Tucking the top in gives a shape that’s still relaxed but feels a little more tailored, especially when you add a statement belt.
Blue denim is another staple that you’ll never tire of pulling out of your wardrobe, but if you’re looking for a 2020 update on the fabric, balloon-shaped jeans are the way to go. The high waisted style (a nod to their predecessor, the mom jean) featured a wider leg that tapers into a fitted ankle cuff.
To make them even more flattering, you can roll them up a couple of inches a la Rochelle, as this trick can help your legs look even longer. Her pair costs just £25.99, so by the time you’ve had them for a month or two your cost per wear will virtually be pennies!
Sadly, the only part of Rochelle’s ensemble that we haven’t managed to track down is her pointed mules, but with white shoes set to be a big hit once again this summer, we’re hoping it’s only a matter of time before we find a great high street dupe.
In the meantime, the combination would also look great with your favourite white platform trainers, or Topshop’s new Bottega Veneta-inspired quilted sandals – they’re our tip to be the next big cult shoe.
