We’re declaring it denim season, so the hunt for your next day-to-dark heroes starts now. Whether you opt for pieces with flared or frayed hems or an elevated jumpsuit, these are the denim pieces to buy and brag about.
A wardrobe favourite since we were five years old and an ode to perennial summer, the humble denim skirt proved its staying power this season with its latest revival: the button-down style that stops just short of the knee, with a flared midi-length design.
Dress it up with: a loose-fit silk blouse tucked in. Accessorise with platform sandals – show off your socks if you dare – and a bold bucket bag.
Whether it’s exposed stitching, an embellished hem or side stripes, denim with detail is what all the cool kids are wearing. Opt for dark slim-fit jeans with grosgrain side stripes for a new take on sports luxe. Take our word for it, you’ll wear it all week long.
Dress it up with: A cream guipure lace top with flared sleeves. Lift the look with slingback pumps or studded leather brogues.
The new denim jumpsuit balances polished and playful – think a cut-out detail at the front or a one-shoulder style with ruffles at the legs. Try a dark-blue denim jumpsuit with an adjustable waist tie.
Dress it up with: Electric-blue heels and an unstructured satin blazer to elevate it for the week day.
Slicker than their sister styles from the nineties and noughties, straight-leg jeans have stolen the spotlight from skinny jeans and we can see why. A pair of high-rise straight-leg jeans cut just above the ankle are a fail-safe. But if you need options, add a flared hem style to your repertoire as well.
Dress it up with: A tweed jacket and pointed-toe mules for a day in the office.
Everyone understands the appeal of white denim. From crisp white jeans to an icy denim jacket, your wardrobe will thank you for the injection of cool. Invest in a cropped pair with flared ankles; they’ll pair perfectly with polka dot prints for a work-worthy ensemble.
Dress it up with: A colour-block cardigan and pristine white trainers.
