With cruise collections showing and fashion weeks coming up, I’m looking back on the AW16 collections. There’s one trend that I think might last the test of time – well, maybe for more than one season.
Denim showed up everywhere. Double denim, layered jackets, embroidered denim, denim, denim, denim. It showed up in collections from Stella McCartney through to Cavalli. For example, look 8 from Stella McCartney’s AW16 collection.
After Gucci’s pre-SS17 it is clear denim is here to stay a little longer. Embroidered and bleached denim featured across numerous men’s and women’s looks. For example, look 23.
With summer on the way, what could be more perfect than a denim short or to throw on a denim jacket. To really nail the denim trend, double it up – but look a little cooler than Justin and Britney circa 2001. Here I’ve paired a pale, bleached denim shirt from New Look and high-waisted denim shorts from River Island, in a darker shade.
My advice is to mix and match different shades of denim, or, if you’re brave enough to sport matching denim, a jacket or shirt and jeans, and keep the rest VERY simple – like J-Lo here.
