For me nothing screams spring like some good denim. It’s so effortless and easy to style yet can completely make a look. I’m a lover of old school light blue denim myself but I think coloured denim is fun and playful.
Now I know not everyone is comfortable in jeans but denim can be incorporated into your wardrobe in so many Different ways.
Shirts and jackets.
These are my go to denim pieces as they literally go with everything and you can rock them as loose or fitted as you like. Denim jackets are the perfect balance of not too warm and not too cool that you can reach for them throughout Spring to Autumn.
Dresses and skirts.
You could not get me out of denim skirts in my teens. I lived in them. I always went for button down A line skirts and they could easily be taken from day to night. Denim shirt dresses are always flattering and lightweight enough for spring summer.
Shorts and Overalls.
Denim shorts are great as they are always available in different lengths so there is something for everyone. Also finding a high-waisted pair is never a hassle. I love overalls and dungarees too, although they are not the most practical they look great and again can be dressed up or down.
When wearing denim I tend to pair it with a white tee or vest for a casual look. If I dress it up I simply opt for something with a little more detail like an embellished cami or blouse.
Although I am an avid bargain hunter when it comes to fashion I do believe there are a few timeless pieces it makes sense to invest in. A great pair of jeans, coats, bags and boots. Even if you only ever invest in one of each they will last you years. I’ve had a love hate relationship with jeans for most of my adult life because finding the right pair of jeans can be hell. It’s great to know what style you are after as there are so many that fit so differently.
I personally love high-waisted slim fit or skinny jeans as I love the feminine silhouette they give you. Boyfriend jeans are also great, they are a looser fit but still quite flattering and definitely comfortable. I’m not a fan of ‘mom jeans’ and the flared bottom jeans that are on trend at the moment, I just can’t imagine myself in them. But I definitely believe every trend is not for everyone and we do not all have the same shape.
