When you think of denim clothing and accessories, what comes to mind?
B*witched at their finest? Line dancing? Or THAT iconic Britney and Justin outfit?
If that trip down memory lane is giving you denim-induced PTSD, I’m sorry. But denim is back and trust me it’s much better this time around.
Denim has been gracing the catwalks this season with everyone from Philip Lim to Victoria Beckham hopping on the bandwagon.
In my humble opinion, the safest way to work this trend is a statement accessory and keep the rest of your outfit simple.
This cute embellished one from Shein.com is only €17, total bargain!
If you prefer your denim with more attitude, then check out this dark denim “Not Your Babe” bag from Skinnydip.
Or if you want something much simpler, check out this light blue Miss Selfridge bucket bag, on sale from €40 to €21.
If you are looking for a Fenty X Puma dupe, then these denim trainers from Shein.com could be just the ticket. Currently reduced from €57 to €35.
If I could wear a heel right now, I’d drop everything for these adorable yet versatile denim mules from Nasty Gal.
Fraying, floral embroidery and a low heel, they have it all! I would definitely be packing them in my suitcase for holidays if I could.
One of my favourite summer shoe brands has to be Soludos for their espadrilles. Soludos are available from Asos and Shopbop and while they are pricey, they appear to be good quality.
They’re significantly cheaper on Shopbop.com but I’m not sure how much delivery costs.
FYI, Asos is offering 20 percent off selected shoes at the moment.
I’m not a huge fan of all the denim heeled boots around, I think they look a bit trampy (Gabby from Love Island I’m talking to you).
Denim heels are hard to pull off but I do like these sandals from Nasty Gal, I think they’d be cute with a plain slip dress.
FYI, Nasty Gal are currently offering 50 percent off everything, including sale.
If denim accessories aren’t for you, then you can’t beat the classics, like a statement denim jacket, shorts or a denim mini skirt.
I haven’t worn a denim mini in years but they are making a big comeback (Amber from Love Island knows what I mean) and these are a few I really like.
Inject some sass into your shorts, with an embellished pair like these fishnet layer ones from Topshop or this lace-up pair from Nasty Gal.
An embellished denim jacket is yet another item I have to add to my wardrobe.
I think this River Island one is probably the most festival-worthy item I’ve seen in a long time – what do you think?
I’m also completely crushing on these beauties, a Daisy Street medium blue denim jacket from Asos, a light blue denim with a graffiti style print from Nasty Gal and this perfect pink denim jacket with a frill embellishment.
UPDATE: I ordered the pink frill one but it’s very short and I prefer my denim jackets a lot looser. The colour was also more of a peach than pink so I returned it.
Hope you guys enjoyed this denim edit and are feeling inspired to introduce some more denim into your wardrobes. Let me know what you think – love it or leave it?
I hope to do a festival post soon and I’m off to Biarritz next month so I will have some holiday photos and hopefully, some outfit posts coming up.
Things are going much better for me, my ankle is finally healing so I’m very happy and relieved about that.
