INCREDIBLY, denim went out of fashion once, but it wasn’t out of favour for long. The alternatives, mainly combats and chinos, didn’t have the same appeal as our old blue favourites, and when the denim industry fought back with ‘glamourised’ jeans, adorned with sequins and studs, which could be worn for nights on the town, we all breathed a sigh of relief.
Quite simply, no item of clothing has the same appeal. Pull on your favourites for daytime and you feel instantly comfortable and presentable. They are the staples we have all come to rely on.
Each season the shapes and colours may change and this spring you can wear it from top-to-toe with everything from hats to shoes, to all-in-ones to dresses, skirts and jackets fashioned from our favourite fabric.
Like every other fashion, denim goes in extremes, so bleached fabric is taking the place of deep dyed indigo this season. It’s not a look that suits all, so luckily there are lots of alternatives on the market, but the palest hues are the ones to opt for.
For summer seek out denim playsuits, shorts and sleeveless shirts. Add a bit of floral embroidery and you’re back to the 80s.
