All the denim styles you need to know about.

Denim is having a bit of a moment, and a new pair of jeans is the easiest (and coolest) way to update your wardrobe for spring. But a pair of classic skinny jeans just won’t do, though we’re not knocking them.

Oh no, it’s all about mixing things up with different cuts, styles and textures. Denim has never been more fun.

Not sure which shape to invest in? No problem. Here are the jeans everyone will be wearing come spring. The tricky bit will be to pick…

Flares

Flares are undoubtedly the hero of the season, thanks to the revival of the 70s trend. Wear them long if you’re tall, or cropped if you’re a little on the petite side. Both looks work well with platform shoes, and can be paired with a slouchy t-shirt or high neck blouse.

Embroidered

Embroidered denim is everywhere at the moment. But while a statement jacket is great, it’s not for the faint-hearted. So if you’re more of a classic girl at heart, then jeans are a safer place to start. We love blue floral embroidery on the pockets to match the jeans.

Embellished

There’s no doubt about it, you need to go big or go home with this trend. Pearls, sequins, studs and gems are all for covering your denim at the moment. To balance things out, team these with a simple t-shirt or jumper.

For a slightly more subtle look, try jeans embellished with pom poms at the hem. Relaxed and fun.

Cropped

Even in winter, the cropped trouser was everywhere, teamed with ankle boots. For Spring/Summer, it works with pretty much any shoes, from sandals to mules and heels to trainers. This style is particularly flattering on petite girls.

Ripped

The ripped jeans is a wardrobe staple that’s well worth investing in. This season though, they are discreet, with just a small rip on the knee or thigh.

Straight

Long discarded in favour of the skinny jean, the straight leg is making a bit of a comeback. Wear with a peasant blouse or a classic Breton top.
