No matter the time of year (and no matter the year), denim is in. Whether fashioned into a range of flattering jean silhouettes or imparting some nonchalance to a tailored dress, the sartorial staple is consistently reimagined season after season and never loses its cool. Most of us have at least one can’t-live-without piece, whether it leans toward polished or off-duty cool, but there are a zillion ways to incorporate the look into your wardrobe. To discover which iteration embraces your personal style, follow our guide to finding your true-blue match and our tips on how to style it.
Find Your Perfect Denim
Every trend-conscious woman knows a culotte cut with an unraveled hem is the It denim of the season. Style with an of-the-moment cold-shoulder top and terry-cloth-strap sandals.
Love dressing like you're a model off duty? Pair a longline distressed jacket with ripped white skinnies. Finish with leather sock boots and sleek wired sunnies.
Wide-leg jeans in a dark wash are the perfect choice when denim will do at the office. Team with an elegant bow blouse, suede pumps and a refined leather saddlebag.
If you tend to lean toward feminine shapes, select a denim midi frock to wear with espadrille wedges, glamorous fringe earrings and a sweep of vibrant coral on the lips.
Comfort is key, and a relaxed straight-leg option is a practical and chic choice styled with a bright tee, embellished sneakers and a printed neck scarf.
Patchwork jeans work well with your free-spirited aesthetic. Style them with a knit top, tonal platforms and a statement bag bedecked with embroidery and fringe.
