Trends will come and fashions may go, but one staple style that can be relied on – no matter the change in season – is denim. Having evolved from the workman’s jean to the fashionista’s must-have, anyone can deign to wear denim, no matter personal style. But which take on denim is designed for you? Let’s discuss.
Although denim has traditionally been strictly jeans, many brands, including Oasis, are continually proving this is no longer the case. Offering a gorgeous biker jacket and dress among the denim delights in their autumn/winter range, denim has certainly come a long way since it was the working man’s uniform, back in factories during the Second World War. Warehouse, Red Herring and Henry Holland have also re-worked denim into various forms – have fun with it and exploring the best denim style for you.
No matter the inspiring new styles thrust upon us, classic denim jeans have will never go out of fashion. With the correct outfit, you may be in for a treat in finding your perfect pair. For instance, the bootcut jeans from J by Jasper Conran look fantastic for mums on the school run, as they look fabulous with ankle boots and a blazer.
On the other hand, the wide leg jeans from Star by Julien Macdonald look hot when teamed with wedges and a pussy bow top. Be inspired by the remake of the Dallas, on Channel 5, with wide leg styles particularly reminiscent of the old-school TV show. Last, but not least, the skinny jeans from H! by Henry Holland are a must-have year after year – think how Kate Moss is never seen out of hers. Skinny jeans are great with a simple tee and an on-trend leather jacket for that casual autumn look. Whichever style you prefer, these classic jeans will always look good when teamed right.
In other ways to wear it, a denim shirt looks great with jeans – if anyone dares do the ‘double denim’. Though once regarded as a fashion disaster it is, however, now seen as quite edgy and quirky for whoever is brave enough to pull it off. If the classic jean isn’t right for you, we have lovely denim skirts available too – a great option for the classic denim look if trousers aren’t your thing. To add a hint of extra denim style, a denim jacket is a must-have for the autumn wardrobe – it goes with everything, so you simply can’t go wrong.
The great thing about denim is that it also ties in with trends. Move away from traditional blue with a whole range of coloured jeans available. Khaki and berry hues are all over the high-street right now, with Red Herring and J by Jasper Conran both taking inspiration from the colours of the season.
Now that autumn is closing in, there will be even more options to play with this season’s favourite denim. With so many options, it doesn’t take a jeanious to find a look that fits…
