S/S 13 Fashion Trend: Denim

HIGH STREET DENIM TRENDS

DENIM ON THE HIGH STREET


I'd happily commit the fashion crime of wearing double denim. Hell, I'll even go for triple denim! I can't seem to get enough of it, it must be the temptations from the high street. With it being one of the biggest fashion trend for this Summer, I've seen some really trendy styling and it makes me want to fill my wardrobe with denim, denim and more denim! 

I've recently had my eye on this peter pan collar dress from Miss Selfridge and a couple of pairs of these shorts from Topshop. My rediscovered love for the traditionally functional material has been combined with my continuous love for lace appliques and embellished collars. The thing with denim is that no matter what type of garment it is, it always feels casual and youthful. Like I can imagine wearing the bodycon dress with a pair of gladiator sandals during Summer, for picnics or a day trip, rather than clubbing. It just seems too casual for a night out ("out OUT!").

Dungarees playsuits and pinafore dresses, on the other hand, I'm really unsure of. I love the look of them on others but I don't like how "young" it makes me. Maybe the key is to layer with the right blouse or t-shirt underneath. I don't know, but I've seen it look great on other girls, Alexa Chung style, but it just doesn't suit me. I don't think I'm cool enough! What do you guys think of the denim trend? Love it or hate it?

  2. I love denim! I've really struggled to find a cute pinafore that fits me well though, it's starting to feel like a hopeless case! For the moment I'll just settle with denim skater skirts. No.6 is so pretty x

  21. I love denim because I'm a big fan of jeans! However, I think it depends on what colour the denim is and I don't really like playsuits much. They're a hard trend to pull off right! ♥

  22. I love all the denim pinafores in the shops but they don't suit me at all!

  25. I've been loving the denim 'trend'. Wanted a pair of dungarees for years and now there's suddenly an abundance of them on the high street!

  26. I know what you mean, I absolutely despised denim other than jeans, but it's very much an item (jacket or something) one needs to have!

    I think the collage looks great :)

  28. I actually really like this denim trend, and I'm usually the least trend-focused person in the world! I love the topshop dress with the lace applique, it would be soooo nice for a sunny day in the park (like today). Good post!
