Denim was a huge trend last summer and FYI it’s here to stay for autumn too! So if you didn’t invest in key denim pieces last season, now is the time to do it, but choose carefully…!

  • A simple smart denim jacket will last throughout many seasons but a denim jacket covered in tassels and dangly bits is limited only to those season when the 80s cowboy look is in fashion i.e. not very often! This season go for the Bo-Ho look by wearing your denim jacket over a floaty floral dress, our Paisley Print Dress does just the trick!
  • Denim dresses can be dressed up or dressed down so will form a versatile part of your new season wardrobe. Get the look with our curve flattering button front denim dress; wear it with flat pumps now and with tights, boots and a chunky knit cardigan when the weather gets cooler.
  • A good fitting pair of straight leg jeans will never be far out of fashion. Go for a classic dark wash for a smarter look like our straight leg jeans and in keeping with the classic theme of the season you can’t go wrong with a crisp white shirt to create a smart/casual look, simple but effective! If you prefer a jean with more of a flare however, then make the most of the 70s trend and invest in some flattering flares. The shape of this style of jean will also help to balance out a top heavy figure, opt for a high waist to make the most of your figure and wear with a pussy bow tie silk blouse to complete the 70s vibe!

The general rules when donning denim of any type are to keep it simple, don’t over do the denim theme and make sure your denim is flattering even when worn casual!

New jeans…

Denim is a big trend this season and when it’s being worn from head to toe, we want to know how to wear our jeans in light of this denim craze. So here are the 3 key jean trends for spring;

Carrot jeans – yes, you heard us right. This style of jean are named so as they have a high waist, fill out at the hips then narrow down to the ankle, much like, well the shape of a carrot! They work well for slim waists and look great with heels for a dressed up casual look. They can however drown a petite frame, depending on the size of the heels of course!

Harem jeans – super soft denim is used to create the draping effect of one of our favourite styles of last summer. Jean harems however have a much edgier look than the trouser variety. They are more constructed, have more detailing but are just as comfortable. Wear dressed up with this seasons peep toe shoe boots or dressed down with pumps and a simple tee.

Trouser jeans – this trend takes inspiration from some of the latest trouser styles; high waists, wide legs and pleating. The use of light weight denim helps to achieve these styles and makes them a great, yet smart alternative to trousers. This style will also suit just about every shape and size!

The perfect companion for these fashion forward jeans is a simple cami or vest top, this way the focus remains on the denim. Our essential strappy tops come with an integral bra for the support you need without putting up with showing bra straps. Or for a bit of added glam, our slinky alterneck with jewelled neckline should do the trick! Fitted tees also work well, especially with looser fitting jeans such as the harem or wide leg style. And remember, a nude tee-shirt bra worn underneath a white tee will disappear but a white bra will still be visible so the choice is yours, play it discreet or flaunt it?!
