FA S H I O NTrue blueA PERENNIAL STYLE FAVOURITE, DENIM IS SMARTENINGUP ITS ACT FOR SS20, SAYS AMY NORBURYDENIM never really goes out of style, does it? From70s flares and 90s baggy grunge, to the decadeslongreign of the skinny jean, there’s always beena time and a place for denim in our hearts and ourwardrobes.And it’s easy to see why. Timeless, ageless, genderless;denim really is the everyman of the fabric world.And in a world where sustainability and longevity arefinally taking precedence over fast fashion fads, surelythe classic nature of denim stands it in good stead?Indeed, the spring-summer catwalks were awash withtrue blue; the message being, if it ain’t broke, don’tfix it.So how were designers styling their denim for 2020?The main thread saw the fabric workhorsesmartening up its act - super-refined denim makingeveryday style a cinch? Yes, please.We saw a move away from distressed, ripped stylesin favour of more enduring, classic cuts. The springcollections delivered a bumper crop of blue jeans,from summer-ready Bermuda shorts at Chanel to’70s kick flares at Celine.And where the styling was definitely more tailored,the colours on show retained that smart-casual,classic feel. Deep-dyed indigo reigned supreme acrossthe board, replacing the worn 80s look of acid wash- think darker hues which will lovingly fade over timewhile retaining their appeal.While every wardrobe should contain a hero pairof jeans or three, the denim dominance doesn’tstop there. Tailored shirt dresses are fast becominga wardrobe staple, perfect for smartening up in theoffice, or dressing down with simple sandals as wehead into summer. Denim pencil skirts, too, offera less casual option ideal for office days and postworkdrinks alike, while all-in-one jumpsuits are theepitome of easy style.Denim jackets are the outerwear backbone of anyspring and summer wardrobe, the perfect throwoverfor when the weather requires a little more coveragethan T-shirt sleeves. There are smart styles aplenty tolook out for, from denim blazers to on-trend kimonojackets; however, a vintage Levi’s trucker jacket willalways hit the mark - if you can get your hands onone.DENIM POPPER FRONT RUFFLE HEMDRESS, £69, SOSANDER46
