Classic Ways to Wear Denim

Update your classic denims this season to renew one of your favourite wardrobe basics! Denim has been around in America since the late 18th century, and has been a consistent influence on fashion all over the globe, year-round.  Changes in denim colours and washes, the amount of distressing, fading and stitching varies depending on seasonal trends and brands, but denim is always popular.

When we think of denim, we mostly think of only the bottom half (jeans, shorts or a skirt), but this year denim blazers have made their way onto the fashion scene.

Distressed Stetch Denim Blazer

There are a wide variety of styles, designs & colours for denim blazers this season.  Boyfriend cut is a bit of a longer cut, while Stretch denim usually offers a more fitted cut.  One-button blazers are in fashion again, as are other types of vintage-inspired blazers. For classic colours, try classic blue, pink, grey & white, to name a few.

Denim shorts have always made appearances in warmer climates and seasons, but now they are much shorter than before (not surprisingly). Celebrities wear them to show off their legs, but it’s not an easy thing to do if you’re under six feet tall and don’t tone your legs all the time.  If you can pull off the look, go for it, but if you prefer a more demure look, try adding a few inches to the hemline of your denim shorts for an ever-classy look.

Another denim trend that’s always been around & can easily be  made to look casual or dressy is a denim skirt. For more casual occasions, try the sophisticated long denim skirt, or get ready for date-night with a flirtatious shorter skirt.
Not sure which you want? Try a medium-length skirt or long skirt with a slight slit to show off your legs.

Low Rise Bootcut Flare Jeans

A recent fashion revival this season is flare jeans.  When worn with heels, they really accentuate your
rear assets and hips, giving you a feminine hourglass shape.

Light-Coloured Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans have been around since 2006 & accommodates most body types. If you have a curvier shape, skinny jeans give off the impression of longer legs & a slimmer body (also especially when worn with heels). Wear them with a tunic style shirt to hide any little bulges or just to get a Bohemian-inspired look.

Whatever you choose, denim is a must in any woman’s wardrobe.  Update your denims, and you can wear them with virtually anything, anywhere.
