THE ESSENCE OF CASUAL IS RETIRING DENIM, AS THE CLASSIC TEXTILE IS APPROPRIATED INTO MORE SERIOUS SILHOUETTES IN THE OFFICE, THE CHICEST RESTAURANTS AND ON OUR STREETSTYLE FAVOURITES.
Denim can fall into Britney Spears circa Justin Timberlake territory dangerously easy, especially when all pieces share the same rinse. Take a more calculated risk and combine different washes. A long pencil skirt looks great combined with an even longer denim coat. A cropped top perfects the look. Those who don’t dare to double can wear a white blouse and capri pants and toughen up the look with a patchwork top. Add dimension with coloured heels. An effortlessly cool ensemble can be achieved with a menswear-inspired look. Wear a striped tee under dungarees and match it with a hat and platforms for the ultimate summer street style kick. Denim has come a long way and luckily the traditional textile is here to stay. Whilst we can still enjoy its weekend appeal, an era of feminine shapes and elegant details takes denim into the week.
