Guest Post: Denim Dreams.


Denim Dreams.




Denim is never far from fashion, although it does change in shape and colour. This summer, make sure you’re on trend with the very latest in denim innovation.

This season, denim is taking a slightly new direction, and is moving away from traditional blues and blacks. Pastels were massive on the SS12 catwalks, and jeans are taking those shades on board too. If you’re conscious of your thighs, this might be one trend to avoid. Pastel shades look better in skinny jean form for the same reason that they make legs look larger than they are, so a baggier leg will just add more bulk. These jeans look best with loose fittings blouses and heels.

The colours don’t end at pastels though. Jeans are worn this season in a multitude of eye-catching shades like red, green and purple. As with the pastel shades, a skinny jean can pull off bright colours better than any other leg shape. But unlike pastels, these colours can be paired with more exciting accessories. These jeans are fun, not classic, so match the rest of your outfit accordingly. Try a gold metallic vest top with skinny purple jeans for a unique and stylish combination of colours and trends.

Cut-offs are summer staples, and look effortlessly sexy during the day when worn with bare, bronzed legs and some strappy sandals. For added cool factor, use your own old jeans to make an authentic – not to mention economical – style, instead of buying them at the shops. The idea is that they’re a bit messy, so don’t worry about fraying. Simply chop off the legs at your desired length and turn up the hems. For added style this summer, make the most of the tie dye trend that was spotted on catwalks across the world. Add something unique to your cut-offs by tie dying your denims for a hippy vibe.

The key cut for jeans this summer is ankle-grazing, mid-rise and straight leg. Pair your ankle-grazers with sky-scraper heels for instant va-va-voom. The Very.co.uk G Star Raw jeans collection has loads of great cuts for all shapes and sizes, so it’s a great place to start.

The best thing about denim is that no style ever really falls out of fashion. Ultimately you should always stick to what suits you best, regardless of the latest trends.
