New season denim: how to rock the new blues

Shop our edit of denim pieces for Autumn 16

Promotional Feature

Denim is a wardrobe staple, no? So getting it right is a must.

The new season trends are loose, free and have heaps of eye-catching detail. Boxy jackets and asymmetric skirts feature contrast patch pockets, tops have interesting lacing, and straight jeans show off ragged hems, raw edging and fringing. The most covetable pieces include workwear pinafores to throw on at a moment’s notice with a white shirt or roll-neck jumper and loafers, as well as long-line coats and button-through midi skirts.

Blue Denim Look Top, £28, Evans

Forget the stiff fabric of yesterday, new denims are super-comfy and stretchy, giving you more body confidence than you ever thought possible. And the Autumn 16 styles work with the rest of the new season’s looks too, including ruffles, ties and all the latest metallic and military trends. Plus, if the weather’s cool, it’s so quick to layer up – try throwing on an oversized denim shirt over a plain T-shirt, teamed with slim-fit jeans and sneakers for a laid-back weekend brunch.

Shadow Patch Boyfriend Jeans, £32, Evans

Our advice is to make a beeline for the new season denim from Evans, which is easy to wear, suits all body shapes and comes in sizes 14-32. You’ll find slouchy, cropped boyfriend jeans to pair with a chic smock top and flats – simply roll up your sleeves and hems to show a little skin. Or go for a modern-feminine approach by teaming a cute denim pinafore with a frilly white blouse and gold hoop earrings to finish.

Blue Denim Tunic, £38, Evans

The hero piece from the new collection has got to be this midi button-through skirt with a raw-edged hemline. Perfect for dressing up or down, it sits elegantly below the knee and is not only flattering but easy to wear with a fine knitted top and block-heeled ankle boots.
