Hi my lovelies, hope you are doing well! This is the second to last post on the S/S '13 trend series. We are nearly nearing the end now!
In this post I wanted to mention denim as one of the key trends for the season. Firstly, because denim has been intricately reworked not only in the classic jeans, but there has been denim dresses, jackets and shirts which have been given a new modern twist. Secondly, the denim for S/S '13 is very light, causal and easy to wear. I think for the cool breezy spring days and the hotter summer days which we are quite nicely approaching into in England, finding comfortable denim jeans which are light and won't make you all hot and horrible in the day are essential; equally as important is having a classic denim jacket in your wardrobe. And we can't go without a good classic denim shirt for any time in the year. For me, investing in these three denim pieces especially around this time of the year is perfect, because it tends to happen that the denim shirts and jackets in particular are made from a lighter and softer denim than perhaps those that you find in A/W for example.
I practically live in my jeans, like seriously, which means I am always on the hunt for a pair of jeans which are the one. They must fit the following requirements for them to enter my wardrobe. a) super comfy, b) extra skinny, tight - because when they give, jeans tend to loosen and stretch and I don't like the look of a pair of jeans which are baggy around the knees and ankle and c) Long length, preferably L32 - I like my jeans to be slightly longer so that they have a ruched - type effect near the ankles or when I want to roll them up I can do so without them looking like they are way to small for me. Although, I am a girl who's all for a pair of tight fit skinny jeans over anything else - a new style as emerged. The boyfriend fit. A looser, more casual, some could even say (no doubt more comfy than a skinny would be) more comfier, but also perhaps defining 'sexy' in a pair of jeans?
Linked down below are some options for the new summer boyfriend fit -
Warehouse Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
River Island Boyfriend Jeans
New Look Light Blue Ripped Boyfriend Jeans
ASOS Slim Leg Vintage Wash with Rips Boyfriend Jeans
A chambray shirt in the summer is a must. Layered over a maxi, or if you are brave enough to work the double denim trend like Rihanna or Sarah Jessica Parker then go for it. Whatever you choose, a denim shirt will be a key interchangeable piece in your wardrobe that you will be guaranteed to pull out time and time again. Some choices to get you started -
As the name suggested this is a style which will suit all and will not date:
Warehouse Authentic Western Shirt
Forever 21 Long line Chambray Shirt
ASOS Only Shoulder Studded Shirt
And last, but by no means least. The famous denim jacket. With my own experience in the past, I was always afraid to get a denim jacket because I was scared of it looking old fashioned and almost manly. This is why I think its important that when choosing a denim jacket, you choose one that fits around the waist. I personally think that a cropped denim jacket works a lot better for the womanly figure because one that is longer can tend to swamp the figure, hence giving a masculine and broad physique. Rolled up sleeves give a trendier and relaxed feel to a jacket, but as always the choice is yours! Again, here are some choices for you to have browse through -
New Look Blue Crop Denim Jacket
Boohoo Emma Dip Dye Denim Jacket
Asos = Only Denim Western Jacket
Warehouse Western Denim Jacket
