Denim…the eternal neutral, queen of comfort and understated sex-appeal. Ripped, short, long, skinny, loose, cuffed, denim-on-denim, dressed up & down – I love it all!! Who doesn’t have their favorite pair of jeans, right?
Spending the last 7 weeks here in Sydney has given me a whole new appreciation for the denim trend. The casual beach vibe here always welcomes a good pair of loose & worn-in denim shorts or boyfriend jeans with sandals or a fun heel for evenings. I’ve spotted some super cool leather-trimmed denim overalls (yes, sorta like the kind we used to wear in middle school…remember this post?!) and even a few pairs of updated “Hammer-Pants” inspired denim by local Aussie brand Bassike (not sure if I can get behind that trend – yet, at least.)
My current favorite denim brand is R13. They’re an Italian newcomer whose jeans are perfectly cut and super high quality. Their skinny jeans never lose their shape and are so flattering & comfy! If you’re on the hunt for some new denim, definitely check them out!
Below are a few of my favorite Pinterest shots of how to rock the relaxed denim trend in a variety of ways. My favorite thing about these images is that they prove that no matter how you style it, denim never takes itself too seriously…and that’s what dressing every day should be about anyway, right?
