Alongside the seventies, denim is one of the major trends for SS15. So not just a pair of jeans, although the flared the better, I’m talking denim dresses, skirts, dungarees, shorts, jackets and trousers, yep trousers that aren’t jeans but are denim, highly confusing. On the catwalks designers had incorporated denim into their looks, take for instance the cut-out denim dresses at Gucci and also the military styled denim. At Burberry they focused on the denim jacket and made them short and cropped with detachable warmers and coloured panels. Whereas Roberto Cavalli went for a more relaxed feel with cut-off denim shorts and ripped tees.
You may have also seen Alexa Chung embracing the trend when she recently designed her own line of clothes for AG Denim. The shirt dress and A-line skirt sold out straight away, however I have found a good version from Esprit below. For me bootcut denims bring back memories when I was a teenager, I used to live in them. Someone had to stop me from going into Miss Sixty, they were my perfect jeans! Now I think you’d have to pay me to get out my skinnies, I love following fashion trends but at the same time I want to feel comfortable in what I’m wearing so I think it is one I’ll probably miss this time. I definitely am loving the shirt dresses and picked up a fab one recently from Forever 21 which you may have seen in my latest haul video and I am currently working on a little DIY project of my own on an old denim jacket.
