No longer “just jeans” (see what I did there…heehee) Jeanswest is fast becoming a one-stop-shop for me when I’m out shopping with my style coaching clients. So I wanted to tell you guys a little more about why I think they are so awesome!


Not only are their range of jeans the best out there in my humble opinion, their extended clothing and accessories range is kicking butt!

Jeanswest jeans rock because they offer a selection for all different shapes and sizes from the “Tummy Trimmer” to the “Hip Hugger” and “Curve Embracer” – they all sound a bit lovely don’t they. I ALWAYS find the staff amazing, knowledgeable and helpful (but not too in-your-face, they have tact people). AND the jeans have a lifetime guarantee on all the buttons, zips etc.

Now to the OTHER stuff! Need a pair of ponte pants? Jeanswest have ’em. Need a sharp new blazer? Jeanswest can deliver. Need a pretty dress to wear to work? Done. And to show off how great their full range of clothing is, Jeanswest were lovely enough to give me few pieces to try out for you, so here is just a smidge of the awesome Jeanswest collection;


This ponte jacket is THE perfect blazer. The fabric is good enough for work, but relaxed enough for play. The shape through the waist will define a waist you’ve got, or give the illusion that you have one if you don’t.

The stripe tee with the slight godet at the back (a godet in an insert of fabric that adds like a fishtail effect) is more that just another tee.

And the jeans – what can I say about the jeans! If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know I’m actually not a massive jeans fan (read this to find out more) BUT these? A. MAZING. High-waisted to stop that awful muffin top, dark denim is generally most flattering and the Thermolite* fabric is amazing!

Jeanswest_1 jeanswest_3SHOP THE LOOK: Desi godet stripe tee (pictured in night blue/coconut) size XXS – XL $29.99 | Kali ponte jacket size XS – XL $89.99 | Monnie highwaisted Thermolite jeans* size 6-16 $99.99 | 

*Thermolite jeans from Jeanswest are woven with special thermal fibres that promote insulation, trapping your body heat inside your jeans, keeping out the cold and wind – they are AWESOME!


This is officially my look for Spring (now if it could just get about 10 degrees so I can wear it, that would be super!). Boyfriend jeans are the ultimate dress up-or down jeans in my world. And here’s the same tee just tucked in this time.

SHOP THE LOOK: Desi godet stripe tee (pictured in night blue/coconut) size XXS – XL $29.99 | Luana boyfriend jeans $89.99 (similar here) 


Toasty warm! The same basic outfit as above, yet much more suited to relaxing at home, popping out for a catchup coffee with friends, or even taking the kids to the park to play!

The 3/4 sleeve shrug is a little more fashion-forward that a standard cardigan (kaftans and drapey things like this will be HUGE for Spring – mark my words!) and it’s just as snuggly!

Now I’ve done the heavy lifting (read: hours of shopping) for you already. And here are a couple more things I’d be putting on my spring shopping list quicker than you can say “a-trim-latte-with-four-sugars-thanks”  if I were you……


SHOP THE LOOK: 1. Relaxed bootcut jeans in indigo (size 7-20) $20.99 | 2. Ivy cross body bag $39.99 | 3. Gemma 3/4 sleeve print tee (size XS-XL) $13.99 | 4. Janis printed kimono (size 8-16) $59.99 | 5. Chleo printed shorts (size 6-16) $49.99 | 6. Dolly silk printed shift dress (size 6-16) $99.99 

SPECIAL MENTION: if you are in or around Auckland CBD, make sure you go and visit Clare and the team at Jeanswest Queen Street. They have a super-gorgeous newly refurbished store that looks incredible! There is even a JEANS WALL! yep – so cool (unfortunately, all my awesome photos were on a laptop that went belly-up a few weeks ago *shakes fist at the laptop gods*). Anyway, tell them Cait sent you and they’ll give you some extra-special care 🙂

Until next time,
In Style & Love Always
