May Fashion Picks: Denim: everything, everywhere, all at once
TEXT: NOELIA SANTANA | PRESS PHOTOS
Denim is fashion’s understated hero. We can always count on a pair of jeans to save the day, as they go well with just about everything! This spring/summer, designers are surprising us with the infinite possibilities of this wardrobe staple – from gorgeous denim dresses, to a more streamlined way of wearing a ‘Canadian tuxedo’. Get ready to wear denim in all shapes and forms.
The light-wash jeans
Swap your classic blue denim for a lighter wash to instantly freshen up your outfits this spring/ summer. Try the double denim look by wearing the denim jacket and spicing up your ensemble with a pair of vibrant-coloured trainers. This pair of jeans by Dutch label Kings of Indigo – another denim brand very much on our radar because of their quest to keep their environmental impact to a minimum – is certainly made to last.

The baggy jeans
Let’s be honest – many of us are addicted to our snug, skinny jeans. Fashion has now gone in the opposite direction, and the baggier the jeans, the better. We’re staying away from both ends of the spectrum with this pair of Scotch & Soda jeans.

The ‘70s platforms
If you are ready to commit to the full denim trend, then finish your look with this pair of super-stylish platform shoes by Steven Madden. They will go great with the denim dress, or you can match them with a pair of jeans and a denim shirt for a total denim look with plenty of ‘70s flair.

The alternative dress
French house Chloé knows how to master bohemian chic vibes. This fashionable dress from their sister brand See by Chloé is a great way of adding denim to your spring repertoire. A denim dress is a very versatile piece to wear year-round. When there’s a chill in the air, simply pair with a turtleneck and boots.

A timeless jacket
Shopping is great, but shopping while keeping your ecological footprint to a minimum is even better. Dutch-based brand Mud Jeans was created in 2012 with sustainability at its core. Understanding that making denim takes a toll on the planet, they are committed to using only organic and recycled cotton. Mud Jeans also creates items that are versatile, timeless and genderless, like the Jackson jacket.
