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:

layered winter breastfeeding outfit: wrap top, printed jeans, wool cardi and scarf | AwayFromBlue

Mulberry regular Alexa bag in foggy grey | Away From The Blue
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.

  1. These are some jazzy jeans! Agreed, ankle zips can be tricky with boots. But I submit that the month begins on purchase (or delivery) of item in question, not calendar month!

    1. yes I usually say the "wear in a month" rule applies 4 weeks after I buy something, not the calendar month...but now I'm doing the monthly wrap up posts I'm trying to do calendar month. Makes me reconsider end of the month purchases harder too, do I really need it now or can I wait until next month? And if I wait, do I really need it in the first place? It's an interesting experiment!

  3. I love adding a pop of color to monochromatic outfits or outfits that are too dark so I think the red scarf added life to your outfit. I love it! :)

  4. I like the print, these jeans do have a pretty grungy feel, which I like for autumn and winter.

  12. I could see these being a bit tricky, but let's face it, you're a total pro! (; I think they really work to your advantage in the winter because they add a little something to all the layers of fabric! haha I need to be less safe with my "bottom half wear." I used to have so many colored jeans and sort of got out of it. Now, I am on the hunt to add more back into my wardrobe! (:

  18. I like your ambitious goal of wearing everything new twice the first month! I might have to try that. And the printed jeans are so fun - bold, but still kind of a neutral.

  21. Those jeans are so lovely and unique, I love them and how you've styled them in both looks! I actually think the red scarf looks great paired with the bag, since it looks like a darker grey! I also love the edgier vibes the whole look has. The second one is so lovely, too. Don't you hate that, when you layer because it's supposed to be so cool, but then you walk into a place and have to strip down because they crank up the heat?! haha! You look fab, beauty! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

  22. I have yet to wear the new garments right a way but I love that this rule works for you. I guess it works because you stick to it :)
    I am not too sold on the jeans, I'd think they are really difficult to wear.

    1. Yes the only time I haven't been able to stick to it over the years is when I've been pregnant and the bump has outgrown things too quickly! Otherwise it's been working really well for me :)

  24. I'm always a little nervous around printed jeans specifically because I'm not sure how to style them, but I think you've done really well with these. I especially like the second outfit, although the first one reminds me of a punk vibe what with the leather jacket!

  37. Hello, Mica! <3

    At first, I thought it was a pair of leggings! Anyhow, I love wearing printed bottoms and pair it with a plain top. Or sometimes I can be a little experimental too, and match it with a different printed top! Lol. Nonetheless, I love how you styled these looks! Hope to hear from you soon :)

  40. I am a huge fan of printed pants because they look so much more put together and purposeful than jeans. They do take more thought when putting your outfit together though I think the outcome is worth it! I can't wait to see how else you wear these!
