Someone, somewhere, would say that I took the denim dress code way too seriously… but it works. Instead of just going for the classic Denim-on-Denim ensemble, I decided to reach for the treble by teaming my oversized denim jacket and ripped jeans with a casual denim shirt.
Not forgetting the denim choker, an accessory that really cements the dress code. I didn’t disappoint.
Over the years, the denim trend has evolved, and is still evolving. In the past, Bootcut jeans were pretty much standard uniform. Fast forward to now, skinny tight-fitted jeans completely trumps the classic Bootcuts.
Now, we have been spoilt with choice in any denim section of a clothing store. With an array of different styles to select ranging from Boyfriend, Mom, High Waisted jeans or even dungarees. Together with the option of Frayed, Embroidered, or Ombre jeans, I find myself browsing for longer than I really should be.
Better yet, the way we wear denim in 2016 is being reinvented, with the rise of the Denim thigh-high boots proving it’s versatility. Having said that, there’s really no reason why denim shouldn’t be in the centre of anyone’s wardrobe.
At the moment I’m really loving the new denim collection, ‘Good American’. A line created by Khloe Kardashian and Emma Grede, that embraces women of ALL sizes. But if I’m honest, it’s too damn expensive.
Instead I’ve curated a short list of affordable alternatives:
Pull & Bear.
With its strong variety of denim pieces, Pull & Bear is easily my favourite go to. (Currently a 50% sale going on).
Spend a day at University and you’re bound to spot someone in a pair of Topshop Joni Jeans. For its price and quality, I would really recommend it.
Unfortunately, I don’t own any Levi’s as of yet, but I couldn’t go without mentioning this iconic denim brand. For its value, it’s worth the pounds.
