Denim For Work And Evening – Here’s How To Pull It Off
While floaty sundresses and flowing maxi skirts are always a welcoming, feminine sight, Spring/Summer 2015’s daring denim trend is also a free-spirited spin on the classic pair of blue jeans. On the runway at Chloé, high-waisted dark denim shorts with a loose silhouette and front pockets made a splash. Meanwhile, Dolce & Gabbana showcased an alluring, embellished pair of boyfriend jeans for a ladylike take on the borrowed from the boys aesthetic. At Stella McCartney, a deep blue denim dress with a flowing, asymmetrical hem and bold buckled straps brought a 1990’s inspired feel to the runways.
If you’re coveting a dose of denim this season, here are our favourite ways to bring the trend into your Spring/Summer 2015 wardrobe.
To update your style for the weekend, try pairing a flowing white bohemian blouse with jean cut-offs or high-waisted, tailored denim shorts. Keep your look playful and in line with the season’s trends, by adding strappy white espadrilles and dark gradient aviators. For a funky, fashion-forward vibe, faded, cropped skinny denim can easily be transformed with an oversized floppy hat and a sheer blouse.
Although jeans may not be an office wardrobe staple, dark wash denim is a sophisticated new look in knee length pencil skirts and sheath dresses. The conservative length is a perfect look for work, while the denim allows you to embrace the end of the work week in true fashionista style. Pair your longer skirt with a cropped blazer, a floral print blouse and a collar necklace.
There’s no sartorial rule that denim must be restricted to lazy afternoons or country weekends! For a funky, fashion-forward vibe on a night out, update your fitted denim romper with metallic open-toe heels, golden bangles and a thin, waist-cinching belt. To bring your look to the next level, combine your ensemble with a white leather mini bag for a hint of easy elegance. Better yet, wear the new ( again) flared dark washed jeans with your favorite fringed anything and show off that cool 70’s vibe! Groovy , just groovy.
