While fashionistas everywhere are used to sporting blue jeans, go-to denim has recently received an upgrade from Casual Friday to the catwalk. On the season’s runways, denim dominated as a must-wear trend for the colder months, with numerous staples making a statement in the fabric. If you’re wondering how to continue rocking your jean looks even as the snow falls, look no further than these style ideas.
For a fuss-free weekend, draw your sartorial cues from the Stella McCartney catwalk and transform basic denim into a quirky fashion statement. The look of an oversized denim coat, paired with a ruffled dark denim blouse and baggy knit trousers, can be surprisingly versatile. Simply add pointed toe white shoes, slip on additional layers if needed and get ready to embrace funky denim in all its glory.
For a day of business, strut into your office in a floor-length denim topper, paired with a well-tailored denim maxi skirt (as seen at Miu Miu). Pair your jean ensemble with a pastel blue knit sweater and delicate pearl necklace for a touch of ladylike sophistication. Meanwhile, a shiny blue leather satchel picks up on the blue tones in your outfit, and brings together your look of the day. Could dark wash denim be the next power suit? If this runway look is any indication, you just might be able to transition your jean pieces into professional essentials.
As the sun sets, turn to metallic skinny jeans (as spotted at Ralph Lauren) for a rock and roll feel. Slip into a white ruffled collared blouse, add a gold brocade blazer and complete your look with black ankle boots. Whether you’re heading out to your favourite dive bar or checking out an art gallery opening, this fierce yet effortless style will take you from early evening to after hours.
