Denim for the whole family

This wardrobe staple has evolved far beyond the one or two pairs of basic jeans in everyone’s wardrobes. Tops, jackets, pants, skirts, jumpsuits… the list could go on and on for the number of clothing items found in denim, let alone the list of colours and acid washes available. That’s why most families can find denim in each one of their wardrobes, even the littlest. It’s long wearing and tough for the kids to wear every day and fashion-forward for all seasons of the year for the parents.
Read on to find out the top 3 denim items essential to every member of the families’ wardrobes as well as some outfit inspo, to get you obsessed with denim again.

There are so many ways to include denim in your outfit every day, and it has been in fashion for so long that it will probably always be. From oversized to super skinny and fitting the styles for skirts, jackets, jeans, tops and dresses in denim goes on. When it comes to dressing up or dressing down any denim item, it’s all about what you wear with it. For a day out shopping opt for sneakers to go along side your denim but don’t be afraid to pair your denim with a pair of eye-grabbing heels for those nights out. The top three must-have denim items for any woman are a standard pair of blue jeans, a comfy denim jacket and a fitting denim skirt for when it warms up.

Probably one of the most essential items in any man’s wardrobe are jeans. For hot days, there are denim shorts and for cold days there are denim jeans, and depending on style and taste there are many different colours and fits. They go with pretty much everything from jumpers and t-shirts to button-up tops and blazers. Jeans are important but don’t forget the good old denim jacket because it is one on-trend piece at the moment. Don’t be afraid to go for a black or coloured denim either because you really can’t go too wrong when it comes to this fabric. Especially at this time of year we are spoilt for choice, which is great if your old denim is looking tired.
