20 Ways To Wear Denim

The internet, the television, the spaceship: I think we can all agree these were among the most influential creations of the 20th century right? But if we had to choose a fashion equivalent of 'the internet' in terms of influencing our everyday lives: it would have to be denim.

No doubt your parents rocked their 'sexy' flares back in the days of freedom and all that (something we'd prefer not to imagine I assume) and speaking personally, I can't actually remember one single year that I didn't have a good pair of denims hanging in my 'drobe. I also fondly remember a non-school uniform day where me and all my friends made a pact to wear denim dresses. Bet we thought we were the new TLC!

Safe to say that denim is timeless alongside jean-ius! Sorry. Dad jokes aside..... Here's twenty ways to wear denim and not look boring (as sometimes the preconception is):

1. Boyfriend Jeans Go Chic
Throw on a pair of these baggy ripped beauts alongside a pretty top, some sliders and some circle sunnies for a look that echoes an off duty model.

2. Cute Bohemium Cut-Offs
Cute cut offs are easy to make from a pair of your old fave jeans. Throw on a bohemium style vest and you'll feel like you're at Coachella.

8. Fluffy Textures
Nothing looks better against the rigid texture of denim than a fluffy knit jumper or vest. Faux fur also has a great effect against denim.

Pastels are the trend that never ends! Pastel jeans are a great investment and ensures an all over pastel attire isn't too sickly sweet.
