AW17 Style: Denim you need in your wardrobe this season

Posted on April 03 2017

- DENIM FOR DAYZ - 

This season it’s all about diversifying your denim.

 

You can wear denim from head to toe. The versatile and multipurpose fabric will be used in everything from classic jeans to structured jackets, smart chambray shirts, miniskirts, shorts and even accessories.

Play with different shades and finishes for autumn/winter – go for distressed and worn in styles, light and dark shades of blue and interesting qualities like embroidery, stepped hems and frayed textures.

 

Here are the key denim items you’ll need in your wardrobe this season:

 

Classic Jeans

 

One thing you can count on season after season is a classic pair of denim jeans. Re-wear your tried-and-true skinny leg or straight cut jeans this autumn/winter, or opt for something a little more bold.

 

This autumn/winter, dark washes and finishes are favoured for jeans if you’re going for an elegant or subdued look, while lighter washes lend themselves to relaxed looks and the ultimate weekend casual wear.

 

For dark washes, go for ink blue, mid-blue, indigo and black denim. Pale blue, light indigo and bleached denim will be key shades for light washes.

Classic with a Twist .... 

 

Distressed and worn-in jeans will be popular this season. Look for frayed hemlines, slouchy boyfriend styles and ripped details to add interest to your outfit.

The Smart Shirt

 

Nothing beats a smart button-down shirt and you can still look the business in denim.

Chambray shirts bring a relaxed touch and soft feel to the traditional collared shirt, while retaining the sophisticated form and fit.

Style a chambray shirt with black leggings, coloured jeans, a flattering A-line skirt, or be daring and opt for double denim. Ohhhh yeahhhhh. 

The easiest way to wear denim-on-denim is to mix light and dark washes rather than wearing the same wash head to toe. For instance, if your chambray shirt is a light wash, pair it with dark ink jeans.

What we suggest ...

Layer with a jacket

For an easy wardrobe update, a denim jacket is the way to go.

This season, light and mid-blue washes are proving popular for denim jackets, along with cuffed sleeves and chunky buttons.

The denim jacket also offers the perfect garment to layer over a light knit or simple tee.

Keep warm & edgy ....

Why not mix fur & denim. Fur Denim Jackets are perfect for those cooler months.  The Fur Denim Jacket by Boboli (Spain) ticks all the boxes.  You even have the option of removing the fur lining so you can keep wearing your denim piece all year round.

Dress up


 

While not that common, denim will make its way into dresses this season.

Key players at recent autumn runway shows included denim shirt dresses, wrap dresses and A-line styles.

Whether you like your denim distressed, lightweight, washed or polished, you’re bound to find a denim dress in a style to suit.

A point of interest

Denim will be prominent across other garments including miniskirts, shorts (best for those warmer autumn days) and even accessories.

If you’re looking to spice up your denim, look out for styles that incorporate embroidery, stepped hems in jeans or frayed and distressed finishes.

Denim accessories offer another way to infuse this versatile fabric into your wardrobe, with denim-look sneakers, caps and bags all popping up in this season’s collections.
