Denim has been previously known and used for it’s versatility and allowing women to dress it up or down, but more times than not, denim has been previously seen to represent a casual and street style look. For this year’s spring summer trends however, denim has taken an evolutionary step to the heights of fashion and been re-branded into a high-end luxury fabric with runways showcasing statement making pieces with denim.

How to Style Denim Up:
Skirts- Denim skirts can easily be styled with a pair of stilettos, a printed silk shirt and a sleek bun.
Jumpsuits- Jumpsuits can be styled with delicate jewellery, ankle strap or stiletto heels (go for statement heels in a bright colour or print) and a colour matching shoulder bag or clutch.
Tops- A denim crop top can be paired with satin pants, ankle strap heels and a laid back jacket. Alternatively, pair your denim top with a floor sweeping and flowing printed skirt in a light material paired with oversized sunglasses.
Jackets- To pull of a high end look with a denim jacket, ensure you pair it with dresses, trousers or skirts in luxury fabrics such as silks, stain or cotton blends in bold prints or bright colours. Wear with heels, boots or wedges.
Trousers- As for your jeans, style with a white or white/blue stripped shirt, high heels and a men-style watch with delicate jewellery in gold or silver. A very stylish classic!
Dresses- Find a denim dress with interesting details that you can simply wear with something as simple as white wedges and a chunky necklace.
