Spring has Sprung! It may still be chilly and your coats are still keeping you toasty, but there’s no denying the evenings are getting lighter and even the grey days don’t seem quite so dull. What better way to transition into your Spring wardrobe than with some dark denim. This hue is perfect for making a white shirt look even whiter and crisper and getting some mileage out of softer colours like candy pinks, baby blues and sweet lavender. The dark denim works these shades perfectly and seems more modern than its lighter blue counterpart right now. Definitely adds a youthful spin to your look and gives these sorbet shades a cool edge. Don’t overlook how well dark denim works with bright shades either.
These girlfriend fit jeans from Gap work well with the silky, pink and orange scarf print shirt from Anthropology. Bring them into Spring ’18 with some white casual, point toe slip ons. The denim double breasted blazer is vintage and gives the outfit a smarter, but cool edge.
Below are some suggestions to help you create your own dark denim story and embrace this deeper hue once again.
These J Crew jeans ($125.00) are a really great shade, not too dark, but deeper than a mid wash and in a straight cut fit with a raw hem, these will work with the volume of this fab embellished hoody by Mc Q by Alexander McQueen ($480.00). Add another dimension by layering this monochrome striped shirt by Frame ($295.00) underneath. Let the collar peek out from the hood and let the shirt show beneath the hem of the hoody, giving a casual vibe, or half tuck for a sleeker look. Finish off this look with some feminine kitten heel shoes by Self Portrait ($420.00) and add a colour into the outfit with this wristlet bag by Mulberry ($1295.00) in an antique ruby.
