Denim may have been a wardrobe staple since the 1950s but this season it is having a renaissance. Trends go in cycles, and it seems denim jackets and stone-wash jeans are back, so here are some top denim looks for summer 2013.
No denim outfit will be complete this season without a jacket. Fitted biker jackets are a must-have for a stylish finish to a summer outfit, or try a baggy denim shirt as a casual and comfy extra layer over a dress.
The faded look of acid-wash and stone-wash jeans is everywhere. It’s a bold but striking choice when teamed with slogan T-shirts and trainers. Did you spend hours sewing colourful patches onto your jeans all those years ago? Well now embroidery is back too! Whether it’s a small embellishment or an all-over pattern, this look creates texture and is really fun.
And if you are a brave trend-setter do you dare try the “double-denim” look? No longer relegated to the 1980s, the catwalks have seen denim shirts with jeans and even jackets on top. Try a block of colour or perhaps vary the shades to make the outfit more interesting. Patches add tone to your regular blue colour and there are even all-over patchwork jeans, although they may not suit everyone. Two-tone is a huge trend with light and dark shirt sleeves and two-tone jeans are great for slimming and elongating those legs.
There are no limits this season; if blue isn’t your colour then you may find yourself even more on trend with coloured jeans. From fuchsia pink to muted mint-green, a burst of colour is very stylish. Pastel shades are ideal for laid-back lunches, while the bold brights will make you the centre of attention on a night out.
Whatever your preference, there is a denim look for you if you’re brave enough to try it and you’ll find plenty of inspiration from the range of women’s jeans at Very.co.uk.
