With the spring-summer essence back in town, everybody’s got on the crucial task of wardrobe updating. The summer season is the season where the quote “less is more” fits in perfectly. But, the famous summer myth that denims are not meant for summer with the obvious exception of denim shorts is something that all of us need to rethink. Denims are a wardrobe staple and surely deserve a place in our summer outfits list. Here’s why!
More power to patches
Patches are a trend back from the 90s and they are surely here to stay. Cool and quirky patches on your denims is a truly indigenious way to set you apart from the crowd. The most interesting part of this trend is that you can either buy them from your favourite stores or DIY and create your own masterpieces using iron on patches. A tip for this trend is to pair it with pieces relatively simple so as to let this stand out and avoid clashes. Pair it with a white staple button down shirt, red pumps and a red pout to add to the hotness quotient or a camisole with a sleeveless denim jacket and a pair of black ankle boots for that edgy denim-on-denim look.
Rule of the ripped
Well, ripped denims have been here for quite a while and they are in no mood to go back anytime soon. They are super-versatile and can be paired up with almost anything and everything. They add to the hotness quotient of the outfit instantly and seriously ooze out street-chic and cool. To beat the summer heat, you can totally go for a tank top paired with a flowy kimono with your ripped beauties. Add a pair of flat sandals, your favourite sunnies and a carefree top bun to brave the sun in effortless style!
Fringed denims are all that you need to make a style statement and a strong one at that! With a cropped hemline and shredded fringe detailing, this pair of denims is absolutely to-die-for. You can team it with a plaid or flannel shirt tucked in, a backpack and a pair of sneakers for a cool and laidback sporty look. You can also go for a knotted V-neck tee, a sleeveless vest and a smart pair of block heels with it for that ultra-chic look. So move over, fringed shorts and jackets, fringed denims are here to make your outfits more eye catching and cool this summer.
Call of the cropped
Cropped straight leg jeans are absolutely the ones to go for in order to play it cool this season. With the slim silhouette making the legs look ultra-lean, skinny denims don’t stand a chance in front of this trend. The perfect length of these pieces is just inches above the ankle and if you are a DIY person you can crop any normal boring pair you have at home. You can choose to team these smart denims with a crop top and flatforms (platforms + flats) or maybe a tucked in camisole, summer blazers and a pair of pointy-toed pumps for Instagram-worthy looks!
These pieces give you enough reasons to ditch the denim myth this summer and go all out with these blue beauties. Head to your nearest Lifestyle store and take your pick from the latest ranges of denim available!
