Who doesn’t love denim? It’s a must-have in everyone’s wardrobes and as a fabric it never goes out of date. Want to know what to be looking for this season? These are the 5 trends we’re loving right now:

1. The Boyfriend

Make sure yours are super slouchy and super soft. The only rule is to make them fit well around the waist. Any bulk should be around the legs not the stomach. 

2. Super Skinny

Will the ever faithful skinny ever go out of fashion? Short answer: no. Perfect for sleek blouses and a heel for a down day at the office or biker boots and a tee for a bit of weekend rock chick.

3. Mum

The newest shape to hit denim world is the ‘Mum’. Shape-wise it’s basically the same as your mum would wear, and it’s cool – trust us! Slightly higher on the waist and loose while still following the leg contour. Look for embellished and patched for extra style points.

4. Ripped

Subtle rips, frayed edges, huge rips on the knees – anything goes with this trend.

5. Flare

Another style that just won’t go away, the flare. Very good for leg lengthening and curve balancing – what’s not to like?
