A MASTERCLASS IN DENIM04.09.15
Denim has long since been an integral element to the weekend wardrobe and this season sees our jeans focus shift slightly to bring fresh perspective to classic styles. We looked to our in-house designer, Claire Staines, for styling advice. Here she picks her favourite AW15 looks to give an insight into her vision for the collection.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH FLARED JEANS
Flared silhouettes join our line-up of sartorial must-haves this season, nodding to the 1970s era and putting a statement spin on a classic weekend staple. By tucking in a simple striped tee to the waist of the Jaclyn jeans, Claire keeps the look effortlessly chic.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH HIGH-WAISTED JEANS
Denim has long since been favoured as a downtime essential and Claire puts the theory into practise by teaming the high-rise Helvin jeans with casual, masculine separates. An oversized leather biker jacket and trainers epitomise a borrowed-from-the-boys aesthetic.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH SKINNY JEANS
Skinny jeans have earned their status as a wardrobe non-negotiable and black washes hold an undeniable ease that translates well from day to night. Style them for evening with a silk blouse and heels, adding neoprene and leather touches to bring texture to the look.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH DENIM LEGGINGS
Effortless and easy to wear, denim leggings lend themselves well to trend-led looks. Capturing the season’s military focus, Claire teams the Newton zip-hem style with an army-inspired jacket and block-heel boots.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH STRAIGHT-LEG JEANS
Designed for a slightly longer length that’s ideal for the high-heel devotee, the Carter straight-leg jeans will cut a sleek silhouette. Alternatively, roll them at the cuffs for a more relaxed feel, adding a men’s shirt and trainers to create a contemporary overall aesthetic.
