Denim is timeless. To be precise, I don’t think we will ever have enough of this timeless fashion fabric. I also am obsessed with this rough material and have to get new jeans, skirt or dress every season. Well, don’t we all?
Can I say I got lucky to grow up in the “naughties”? Perhaps… Nonetheless, I got to experience one of the biggest denim come backs that was served to us in the form of TV series such as the original Beverly Hills 90210. I mean who doesn’t remember Brenda strutting the school halls in her high-waisted pair of jeans, which we now call mum-jeans by the way!? LOL right! And let’s not forget Friends. I still remember waiting for the new episode to come out every week, hoping Ross and Rachel will finally get together. But no one wore jeans better than Rachel!
Denim is among the most versatile and practical fabrics, truly loved by anyone. It has had its extended moment in the sun, well for so many decades now and I just don’t think it’s going anywhere.
I like denim for one particular reason. Denim makes it a lot easier to get dressed on weekends as it’s so versatile and provides so much potential.
This time, I went for the classic denim dress style, breaking up my denim look with neutral hues of grey. I opted for a classic A-line denim dress from Miss Selfridge I’ve seen so many different styles on the catwalks, magazines and high street shops but the one that most interested me was this simple style for a more grown up smarter look.
This dress is so cool in nature in that not-trying-so-hard kind of way that I just had to have it. To be completely honest, I wore it the entire winter and it’s also my best friend this spring, Especially now.
There are literally hundreds of different ways I can style this dress. I can either wear it by itself (as I do in this post) with an oversized off shoulder tee on top or even with a blouse underneath. The style is incredibly versatile and this Miss Selfridge denim dress can be perfectly paired with a smart jacket for work, trainers for the casual look or a leather jacket for a more edgy style. The possibilities are endless, I swear!
A few weeks back I went for a weekend break to Ox Pasture Hall Hotel in Scarborough (so click on the link to read my post!). I really needed a weekend break as it was a time when works was always busy, full of quarterly meetings and performance reviews. It’s so rewarding to kick back and relax. I thought this dress was perfect for a walk in this old town, to discover its streets and quiet corners.
I wanted to match the style of my outfit to the theme of this break, so I went for a navy look, pairing the dress with a scarf and grey accessories. What do you think about the final outcome?
