6 Ways To Wear Denim For SS17
Jeans are your wardrobe’s DNA, and this season your ‘drobe’s indigo lifeblood is flowing in a new direction. For SS17, denim has evolved into statement-making pieces that demand more than a plain white T-shirt. Breathe new life into your blue jeans and liberate them from life support, with these 6 vital components...
Embroidered shirt £12, rip & repair jean £15
Peplum shirt £10, skinny jeans £7
“Florals for spring?” You ask. “Ground-breaking”, we say. Embroidery presents a new way with blooms for SS17, and we’re so on board. Both folkloric and fresh, this artisanal finish will shower your denim crop with homespun feels.
2. Shirting 2.0.
Do not underestimate the power of the button-through, this season. From classic white, to summer sky blue, reasons to wear this classic collared staple transcend way past the office. Case in point: this gorgeous, pale blue peplum shirt.
Denim jacket £15, gingham dress £13
Jeans £13, gingham cold-shoulder top £8
We’re calling out gingham in a big way this season, and we love toughening it up with durable denim. Team an oversized jacket with your fave gingham number to steer clear of Dorothy territory, and add attitude to your ensemble quicker than you can say: “there’s no place like home”.
Noticing a theme? Embroidery, gingham, ruffles, and frills exemplify the mood for traditional femininity, felt across SS17’s catwalks. Too twee? Make the look work for you, by teaming frills and ruffles with denim for a fresher finish. Super-savvy ladies will go for cut-out tops in gingham prints and fabrics, for extra style kudos.
Striped shirt £7, super-high-waist skinny jeans £8
Khaki shacket £14, blue shirt £8, jeans £13
Stripes are another major blip on our fashion radar for spring, and shirting has become the natural vehicle to carry the print. As mentioned, blue hues offer new-season freshness. Roll up sleeves and loosen a few buttons to take this smart separate from desk to date night.
6. The shacket
Ladies and gents say hello to the love child of your favourite jacket and classic shirt. The shacket is the perfect spring layer piece, lightweight and smart, and has a touch of military appeal. This key piece is about to change your style game, so grab yours ASAP to stay on point.
