Back, back, back again and better than ever.
8 September 2022

When it comes to denim jeans, there are two general feelings towards them: We either love them as closet staples or we hate them because it is just so over-worn. But if you are in the latter category, don’t throw out those old pairs of jeans because they can be given new life.

The beauty of jeans lies in its versatility – it is one of the few articles of clothing that can be dressed up with a blazer and a button down shirt or dressed down with a simple tee. That’s also why it’s starting to make a comeback. Below, we’ve listed a few fresh style ideas to rock jeans like never before.

It’s 2021, fashion faux pas of the past are now trendy. A full denim look is easy to pull off, thanks to the coordinated effect. Opt for a denim bralette and a crop denim jacket to add some edginess. Don’t forget to accessorise with sunnies and a pair of heels for an effortless but chic look.

Wide-fit ripped jeans are back in season and celebrities are loving it, as proven by Kehlani’s fit in the picture above. Bring some colour into the mix with a bright varsity jacket, chains and some sick kicks to complete the look.

There’s nothing wrong with toning an ensemble down. A classic white button down and straight-cut jeans combo can never go wrong. Slide on some sandals and grab your favourite designer handbag before you head out to seize the hectic day ahead.

Textures deserve way more attention when we talk about street style. Though the rough quality of denim contrasts smooth leather, the juxtaposition is what makes it exciting to look at. If you don’t already own a black leather blazer and platform loafers, it is time to go shopping.

Crop And Flare

Flare jeans have been all the rage this year but many of us might be weary of the 70s style. But there’s nothing to be afraid of – pair it with a super crop top that ends at the waist to create an hourglass figure. With the blazing Singapore sun, we prefer going something sleeveless whenever possible.
