Denim Diaries

If you can’t resist the allure of the classic blue fabric, here are four key styles that should be a part of your autumn wardrobe.  

The Pants


It doesn’t matter if you live and breathe fashion, or associate clothing with functionality, every single person owns at least one pair of jeans. And this season, all styles are trending: straight, skinny, boot-leg, mom jeans, wide-leg...whatever you think looks flattering on you. If you’re on the hunt for an out-of-the-box pair, look for standout details like patchwork or prints, or opt for a drawstring version for loungey vibe.

The Shirt


Now boasting an endless design spectrum—with details ranging from minimalist to over the top, and feminine to masculine—you can safely wear a denim shirt throughout the week without it seeming like a ‘uniform’, aka repetitive. Try contrasting your shirt with jeans or pants, or layer it over your favourite summer dress. A printed version can multitask as a shirt and a dress, while snug styles can be tucked into flared pants for maximum impact.

The LBD of the outerwear realm, you can never go wrong with a denim jacket. This style is ageing as well as a fine wine, and we are here for it. From cropped, boxy styles to mid-length, trench-coat vibes and more, designers really let their creative juices take over when breathing new life into this style. We are especially crushing over details like large pockets, cuffing at the sleeves, vintage buttons et al.
 

The Dress


They were big in the noughties, and denim dresses are back with a fresh mood. The retro, button-down style—seen in a multitude of silhouettes—is a great pick for a casual outing; while the form-fitting versions demand a dinner date! The relaxed styles at Rachel Comey and Marques’Almeida prove that this style can be as versatile as they come...leaving you with options galore for every mood and occasion.
