Denim Days. Think summer, a walk on the beach, a cute little dress and a denim jacket. Think a festival, a fringed top and denim cut off shorts. Think work in the city in the summer, and a denim shirt dress and heels.
Forget just jeans, denim is a wardrobe staple, and you really should own at least one denim jacket, perhaps a skirt or dress, and maybe shorts.
Denim is comfortable, casual, sophisticated and stylish. It’s all of these things and more.
if you’re looking for casual , then jeans are it. Try stepping out of the skinny jeans we’ve all been wearing for years now, and opt for something a bit more chic – like these dark straight leg jeans from GAP (£49.95)Dungarees are having a bit of a fashion moment, so if you haven’t hopped on yet, make sure you get yourself a pair soon. We love this patchwork pair from New Look (£29.99).
A denim skirt should be a staple in our wardrobe. In fact, you should probably invest in a few of different styles and lengths. First up, the mini skirt, like this one from H&M, with frayed edge detail (£19.99), perfect now, or in the winter with tights.
Or be inspired by the 1990s love-in at the moment with this split front midi skirt from New Look (£24.99).
Or make a real statement with this fantastic asymmetric skirt from Waven @ JOY (£50). With a structured waistband and side pockets, this is a fabulously quirky and fun skirt.
A denim shirt dress is a great addition to any wardrobe. This dark wash version from French Connection (£95) is perfect for work and play, day and night.
Denim shorts are a ubiquitous summer buy for some. And they’re great! So comfy and stylish. There are SO many different washes and styles to choose from. This ombre style is from Red Herring @ Debenhams (£30).
If shorts aren’t for you, then mix it up a bit with culottes – another trouser shape that is big news this summer, and so easy to wear. This pair are from French Connection (£75).
Denim days can’t be complete without the jacket. It’s such a good thing to have in your wardrobe. Maybe even more than one. This one, from New Look (£27.99) in a bleach wash, is oversized, just like the jackets of the late 80s and early 90s. A fashionista’s dream.
If you prefer something more classic in your denim jacket, then this one from GAP (£54.95), in a dark wash and a classic fit, is just perfect.
