DENIM ON THE HIGH STREET
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?
