Need help in building your own denim wardrobe? Here’s how in three easy steps.
While this versatile fabric has never gone out of style (we doubt that it will), denim is in a really exciting place right now. The proof is in the many iterations it has seen from the last quarter of 2016 up to now. From interesting finishes and unorthodox cuts to contemporary and size-inclusive options, the diversification was welcomed in the runways and beyond.
There’s a tad bit of a problem with this, though. A good number of denim trends will probably become less prevalent by the end of the year. Our solution? Invest in a denim capsule wardrobe – because only the essentials can keep you stylish season after season.
Consider the fabric
Everything’s going retro these days. Stretchy denim is out, ultra-stiff and old-school jeans are in. Gaining traction today is the structured and rigid fit of denim back in the day. And honestly, it’s a refreshing alternative to the legging-like fit of the fabric that’s hit ubiquity in past couple of years. Bonus point: That satisfying feeling when you finally break them in.
Consider the style
Shop: One-piece denim looks
Think shift dresses and dungarees – two clothing items that are just as classic as denim. The great thing about these staples? They’re super easy to pull off, especially on days when you’re hurrying to school or work, and universally flattering.
Consider the finish
Shop: Light washes
Forego the deep, dark indigo shades this season and opt for pale washes instead. For one, they bring that ‘90s flavor back to your wardrobe and look great with athletic-inspired and laid-back pieces for your days off.
