When it comes to denim,
there are a few things we’ve come to expect.
Warm weather-appropriate cuts. Separates, dresses and accessories that are as appealing as they are comfortable, lightweight pieces ideal for layering in transitional temperatures. But that isn’t to say we don’t constantly crave (seek out, even) elements of newness, to stand apart within that world of chambray and blue. And that’s especially the case when it comes to denim jackets. Anyone who says differently needs a schmack on their Pinocchio noses. I’m just sayin’.
It’s clear that to create a truly successful denim look, one has to be able to achieve a harmonious boy-meets-girl aesthetic. Be it that the more tomboyish fabric (otherwise known as denim), gets a sweet update in terms of trims or cuts, or that ultra feminine silhouettes the likes of dresses and long skirts are fabricated from what’s traditionally-a-man-ish-fabric-called-denim.
It’s all about a feminine tweak here and a bit of experimentation there. Take for instance this bomber jacket. It’s a 2-in-1 concoction. The Grey flannel vest with hoodie thingy is detachable so you can (a) create different looks and (b) adjust just how warm you want to be.
Going further with it. Asymmetrical hemline. Ombré dress. That sort of thing.
Adding an unexpectedly couture element (or three), you know, to refresh the denim element and make it feel new. Afterall, until of late, denim has usually been associated with street wear, casual and comfy, not necessarily high end nor chic.
I find that exotic skins and oversized shades with a touch of gild, never ever hurt.
Loud hair is always a plus to up the denim quotient.
What say you? What’s your take on the ultimate dream denim outfit?
