Forget what you thought you knew about denim, as a key trend on the SS17 runway, denim is no longer just about jeans but is a fashion must-have. With fashion houses like Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger and Givenchy reworking the classic style, it got us thinking how we could update our collection.
Gone are the days where denim was only associated with jeans, this new revival shows our wardrobe favourite evolving with dresses, skirt and embroidered shirts.
Revamp your spring florals
Miranda Priestly may not care for florals, but they made an impact on runways and are here to stay. With everyone from Alexa Chung to Oliva Palermo sporting this look, it’s not hard to see why it’s a hit.
We love this embroidered shirt dress. Falling just above the knee, the relaxed silhouette is perfect for summer strolls and features a tie waist for a flattering fit. Style it with ankle boots and a fringe bag for a feminine ensemble that channels serious boho-vibes.
The denim dress
As coveted as the Little Black Dress, a denim dress is a Spring/Summer necessity. Both classic and versatile, this effortlessly piece can easily be dressed up or down and transitioned for Autumn/Winter.
We’re obsessing over this Bardot dress. Impeccably crafted from a soft cotton blend, the off-the-shoulder style boasts a delicate ruffle overlay across the chest and falls just above the knee. Pair it with a wide brim hat and over sized sunglasses for chic outfit perfect for Riviera dressing.
Caught out with after work cocktails? This denim shirt dress has you covered. Designed with a laid-back silhouette, it features a tie waist for a flattering fit, pockets along the front and a button placket down the center. Swap flats for heels for a day-to-night look.
Denim without jeans
Step away from traditional denim jeans and embrace skirts and trousers. Perfect for sunny weather, these can be worn to almost any occasion, dressed up or down and be easily transitioned from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter.
A modern update on a classic silhouette, this Chantelle skirt falls just below the knee and features a tie waist. Style with a printed blouse and statement bag for a perfectly polished ensemble.
Still not ready to part with your beloved jeans? Switch them for denim trousers instead. This figure flattering chambray pair features a tie fastening along the waist and on-trend rolled cuffs. Team with a soft cotton tee and trainers for a smart-casual look you can wear throughout the season.
