How To Style Jeans For Autumn/Winter
Rediscovering a world of denim after a year spent in sweats is a glorious kid-in-a-candy-shop moment. This Autumn/Winter, we’re spoiled for choice with Skinny, Mom, Flare and 90’s Straight styles to name but a few. There’s a strong chance you’ll live in jeans around the clock this season so why not push the boat out with your styling? Denim jeans look good with practically everything in our wardrobes making them the ultimate investment piece, so whether you keep it basic with a tee or spice things up with a full on look, make your denim debut a memorable one. Now made from responsibly sourced cotton, our denim has turned over a new leaf and we’re ready to style it up. Are you?
First up is double denim. Nothing new, we know, but after the denim drought we’ll be doubling - tripling, even - all Autumn/Winter long to make up for lost time. You can never have too much of a good thing so tuck true blue denim shirts into high rise skinny jeans for a proper blue jean baby transformation. To throw it back Britney and Justin style, look for extra detailing like statement collars and denim frill cuffs that tastefully nod to 00s tack. We’re never ones to shy away from being extra, especially when denim is involved, so go ahead and mix indigo with acid washes, extreme flares with cropped denim jackets because the world of denim is yours for the taking.
When we think ‘Autumn/Winter’, we think layering. As we approach the tricky transitional season that’s usually too warm for a coat but too changeable to risk going without a layer, thin knits are the key. Knitted tops are still dominating the streets and are the perfect solution to unexpected chilly days. If you’re feeling risque or have evening plans, pull a Bella Hadid and only button up one or two buttons to show off more skin. Stay true to the knit top’s 90’s origins and style with our 90s Long Straight jean and a chunky pair of white trainers for a vintage inspired weekend worthy look. Of course when we move into winter, cropped cable knits and chunky retro check cardigans will be your new best friends (and your jeans’ too) so make sure you have the jean + jumper combos you love. Maybe pair a straight leg, light blue jean with a black cardigan for bold contrast or how about an indigo kick flare with a cream cropped jumper? The options are limitless.
Let’s talk shoes. Take your denim from A to B in style this Autumn/Winter with the right footwear. Each pair of jeans has the perfect sole mate that can totally change the feel of an outfit. We love pairing cropped styles with a statement shoe because the amount of ankle to toe real estate really let’s them shine. Instantly make your black loafers with silver buckle the star of the show simply by styling them with cropped denim. For something sleeker, slip into a towering pair of stilettos and your longest jeans for a super elongating after-dark look. A simple shoe swap can change the entire vibe of an outfit so choosing trainers over heels or boots over mules really will make a world of difference.
Finally, the classic: jeans and a nice top. Now that clubs are back open and late night events have the green light, why not take your jeans for a night on the town? Although considered an everyday essential, denim’s versatility knows no bounds. If you live in jeans 24/7 switch things up for evening with a change in wash or cut. Opt for chocolate brown instead of black, an 80’s tapered leg instead of a skinny, high-rise instead of low to try something new. Look for extra design details like embellishment and distressing to add more edge and elevate your denim for after-dark. Pair with your fanciest tops, think slinky, cropped and figure hugging, add barely there heels and all the jewellery for the ultimate going out ‘fit.
