Denim is (thankfully) one of those perennial wardrobe items that never goes out of style. It simply gets updated. To keep your off duty look uber cool in your downtime, invest in these new denim pieces and wear back with your all your favourite wardrobe basics.
Layering is key when wearing a denim vest as it’s a great way to give new life to those older pieces you’ve become bored with. Toughen up anything floral or girly you may have hiding in the back of your wardrobe and channel your inner nineties girl by layering the vest over tees, shirts and dresses. We love black for winter but a vintage washed blue will also give the same edgy feel to your look. Size-wise, go for a smaller cut as this will be more flattering than oversized styles which tend to look boxy and little more grungy.

We are loving fringed denim this season and this dress from Vale is one of our favourite new weekend wonders. Aside from being easy to wear and incredibly comfortable, it’ll be your new best friend in both winter and summer. While it’s still cold, wear over textured tights with boots and a chunky scarf for an effortless casual look or for something a bit more on trend, wear as a tunic over a pair of this season’s long line flares. Add a slick black pointed pump heel and a pop of red on your lips and you’re set to impress.
The denim jacket has always been the ideal weekend throw on as it literally works back with everything – even your blue jeans – just be sure to mix the shades of blue denim to avoid the Canadian tuxedo look! This season we love oversized styles with that ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ vibe, best worn with more fitted shapes like skinny jeans. Don’t forget to roll the sleeves and pop the collar to add the final styling flourish!

A great fitting pair of black skinny jeans is a must in every woman’s wardrobe, so if yours are feeling a little out of shape, discoloured or washed out then now’s the time to replace them. As one of our favourite high rotation pieces for winter, black skinnies will take you from desk to dancefloor in a flash and will look just as good with a pair of Converse as they do with a killer heel. When selecting your new pair be sure to try on a variety of styles and sizes, ensuring they fit firmly around your body and taper in neatly down the leg. Don’t be afraid of buying them nice and tight as denim will give and stretch slightly with wear.

By now you’ve probably got a great chambray shirt in the closet, so it’s probably well overdue for an update and this darker denim cropped style is definitely the way to go. Wear open over a tee with black, grey or white jeans and sneakers for an easy casual look. If the occasion calls for something a little dressier, wear it completely buttoned up and tucked into a leather pencil skirt, then finish with your favourite ankle boots.
