5 Surprising Ways to Wear Denim

By Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

The end of summer is the best time of the year to be reunited with your denim essentials – there is no denying it. It is also the best moment to make room in our wardrobe for new jeans, shirts and jackets.
Whether you are looking for new ways to wear the denim pieces you already own or feel like getting some new styles into your life, here are some surprising and inspiring ways to wear jeans – not forgetting mini skirts, jumpsuits and jackets.

1. Utility-Inspired Layers and a Denim Mini Skirt

Nothing beats a functional look with added fashion details, so don’t be afraid to layer your favourite cold shoulder knit with a fun print and a denim mini skirt – did we mention they are big this season? Finish the outfit with a pair of hiking boots for a look that’s tough and refined in equal measures.

2. Laid back 70’s in a Denim Jacket

With autumn on its way, prep your wardrobe with a faux shearling-lined jacket, a cosy 70s-inspired denim classic. Wear it with a printed midi dress and a corduroy baker hat to channel a full 70s look.

3. Night Out in a Bodycon

Update your denim collection with a coated bodycon dress that you can keep wearing throughout the party season. Make things standout with polka dot tights and statement earrings, ready to turn heads on your next night out.

4. Double Denim Done Right

Take note from 80s style icons – we are thinking Madonna, Sade and Lauren Hutton – and embrace double denim, a casual look that has stayed relevant throughout the decades. Keep things clean and simple with a classic –but so effective – shirt and jeans combination. It never fails.

5. Keep It Simple in a Jumpsuit

Say goodbye to all those mornings spent in front of the wardrobe wondering what to wear. A trusty jumpsuit can be your best friend when we’re lacking inspiration. Keep it casual with trainers or dress it up with a pair of ankle boots. Style tip: Tie a silky scarf around your handbag strap for an instant update.
