Baby blues: Fresh ways to wear denim this spring
Can you feel that? The faint hint of sun on your skin? For many parts of Australia and New Zealand, it's FINALLY starting to heat up. Coats are turning into jackets, tights are being shed and short dresses and skirts aren't feeling so bad after all. Spring has arrived... or, at least, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Denim (in all its forms) is a key staple we reintroduce to our wardrobe as soon as it gets warmer, but this season, there's so much more to denim than your basic jacket or jeans.
Here's three fresh ways to wear denim so you can emerge from your winter cocoon with a bang!
Denim as a layering piece
Your denim doesn't always need to be the star of the show. In fact, it's even more effective as a layering piece, because it helps to create a much more styled, creative look. While the weather is transitioning, try popping a denim shirt under a sun dress or cami.

Your new fave: coloured denim
This spring, it's not all about blue denim (or even last year's favourite, white). We're seeing a big trend towards denim in all sorts of statement colours, usually in an equally statement shape, like these wide-leg jeans.

The new Canadian tuxedo
Pairing your denim is an easy way to pull off a super-creative, fashion-forward outfit. Look for denim pieces you can buy in a set, or make your own with identical or completely contrasting shades. Then, finish with bold accessories!
