Denim is a popular look and a wardrobe must, and the epitome of casual. There are many creative looks that can be made with this simple and functional fabric. For school runs, relaxed casual, or a lunch date, here is how to be original in denim. Start with a few denim staples and build your looks with a mixture of textures.
One of my favourite pieces at the moment is the denim shirt. There are so many combinations you can create with it. Choose a shirt in a light fabric and pair it with a different textured fabric such as sequins, leather, silk, or luxurious cashmere. For a lunch date look, team a light sequinned skirt with a denim shirt and cowboy inspired ankle boots.
Finish off with earrings and an envelope or crossover bag. Try pairing a denim shirt with printed trousers and sandals for an afternoon in town.
The warmer days are upon us and denim shorts in flattering length and style will come handy for your casual look. Wear yours with wedges, a long sleeved top, a short trench coat open, and a fedora hat. Or go for a cardigan with fringe detailing and layer with a simple vest top.
A great alternative to shorts is the skirt. An A-line belted denim skirt worn with a simple shaped top, statement neckpiece, and metallic sandals is a great look for the school run.
This staple works wonders over coloured denims and a scarf, as well as over most casual dresses, skirts, or tailored trousers. A waistcoat or a sleeveless jacket is an equally flattering style and looks best over dresses or jumpsuits.
A wonderful option, a denim dress is best worn with metallic or tan shoes and scarf. Opt for a biker cropped jacket to complement your look.
To nail double denim, create a stylish contrast by pairing denim in opposing texture and hues.
