Joan Jett summed it up perfectly when she said, “I always just think of myself as a jeans and T-shirt person.”
Who isn’t at their most comfortable when dressed in a pair of comfortable and well-fitting jeans? Denims are true fashion classics. Not only have they stood the test of time but also adapted themselves to various eras, styles, occasions and managed to stay on top of the trend charts.
Heading for the most happening party in town? Gearing up for the first day of college? Chilling with your friends? There is one style mantra that you can flaunt at any of these situations with aplomb – denims.
Denims fit every kind of personality; the way a good pair of jeans should. Their versatility and availability is arguably unmatched. Whether printed or stone-washed, there’s a variety of denims to choose from to complement your personal style.
Flaunt those legs!
Well-tailored and designed to flatter sleek forms, skinny jeans look fabulous when paired with a graphic tee and sneakers. If you want to add a feminine touch, replace the graphic tee with a floral tank top and pumps.
This season, be bold and experiment with your style by donning printed denims.
While floral prints are the rage, prints like stars are gaining momentum. Wear a pair of floral printed denims with a solid-coloured top for a relaxed, unconventional look. You can carry this look in the evening too by wearing the floral print denims with a shimmer top and stilettos.
The Boyfriend Effect
Boyfriend jeans rank really high on the fashion meter and are super-easy to sport.
The rolled up legs that give away the identity of the true wearer, the slightly
baggy but charming fit and their ability to look fantastic with a simple white shirt
or a jacket make these absolute must-haves for the ladies. Sport a trendy sling
bag to complete the look with finesse.
Gotta Love Distressed!
Show off your independent and unrestrained side in distressed, frayed jeans. Denims which look as though they have undergone lot of wear and tear can be slipped on any time of the day for that laid-back, understated look. White distressed jeans are a must-have this season and make for an excellent addition to your closet.
Colour Me Bright
Splash those denims with a bit of colour for a peppy casual look. Coloured denims in hues of pastel pink, mint green or vibrant electric blues are in vogue, so you’re sure to find a colour that expresses your personal style. A sure shot way to garner compliments is to colour-block by pairing your coloured denims with contrast coloured peep-toes.
Coated denims are essentially basic denim jeans with coating that gives them a wax-like finish. They exude elegance and refinement, giving good ‘ol jeans an aura of sophistication. Wear them with a basic top and cropped jacket combination for a stylish yet casual look.
Washed to Perfection
The retro trend of stone-washed jeans has remained a fashion favorite for decades after its first appearance in the 80s. Edgy with an air of rebellion, stone-washed jeans can be paired with almost anything from boyfriend blazers to graphic tees.
This is one style trend that spells casual chic and looks best when combined with different washes. For the ladies, pairing pastel-coloured denim jeans with a denim shirt or denim jacket in contrasting colours adds an eclectic touch to the overall look. For the men, casual and comfort-fit jeans teamed with a slim-fit shirt in a lighter hue of the same colour makes for a rugged look.
While Joan Jett echoed the sentiment of eternal style, Giorgio Armani spoke for the entire fashion fraternity when he declared that “Jeans represent democracy in fashion.” Stock your wardrobe with different styles as you can be rest assured, denim is one trend that is always going to rule the fashion charts.
