There is denim everywhere this season. It's like the 1970s came back and demanded a second chance. Jackets, jeans, jumpsuits (the "J" thing is a coincidence!) are the must have pieces of the season.
The nice thing about denim is that it matches everything which I never really understood as a stylist. Denim is classically blue yet works with practically every colour top. But if you were to take a regular blue piece, the same theory doesn't really apply.
For Spring Summer 2015, it's about updating how we style our denim pieces and wearing them with outfits where denim was never really the first choice. So how is this all going to work? We've shared our thoughts on denim already this season but we've an updated edit of bits and pieces all under €50!
The safest place to start is with jeans. The new shape has stepped back in time to re-introduce the flare. If you plan on investing in flares or even bootcut jeans, a high waisted cut are the most flattering.
When worn with a sandal they elongate your legs and have this ability to be incredibly slimming. A denim jacket is a perfect summer time jacket, layered over a plain white t-shirt, or right now, drape over your shoulders with a night time outfit to bring in the denim trend in a more dressy way. For all out statement denim, seek out patterns, cut outs and rips.
The co-ordinated look is something I spotted a lot at London Fashion Week and even though it's still chilly to get the legs out, a pencil skirt and flat shoes looks casual but rather chic.
Festival goers will know the denim cut off short look already (I'm not that much of a fan) but Sienna Miller and Kate Moss can get away with this look. I'm not so sure about myself. A couple of summers ago when I was working in London all I saw were bum cheeks in teeny-weeny shorts. Not for me.
Celebs are complete denim fans and I particularly like Katie Holmes recent outfit where she matched grey wash skinnies with a light denim shirt. Heidi Klum loves her denim shirt too, so I reckon we can safely say the celebrities are leading the way. But my winner is Jamie King, who loves a little edge in her style. Her leather skirt and denim top combo, is my denim pick of the week!
So have you a favourite denim look for the season ahead? Or have you a pair of Levis that are like a hundred years old and still going strong? Share your denim tales!
