The recent return of the denim shirt has triggered a denim frenzy in the fashion world – long gone are the days when the only acceptable way to wear denim was just by wearing jeans. Denim shirts, dresses and jackets are now everywhere you look. Here are our top dos and don’ts for wearing denim (especially denim from Springfield Malta!).
Do look at your options and do not limit yourself
Jumpsuits, dungarees, distressed, ripped, boyfriend fit, girlfriend fit, white, blue, black – your options are truly endless. Luckily for all those free spirits out there, practically everything is in fashion and on trend at the moment, especially when it comes to denim.
Do pay attention to wash and weight, but do not wear the same wash and weight
Denim comes in so many different weights and washes, the world really is your oyster when it comes to picking out what to wear. With washes going from black and dark navy to light blue and white, plus thick denim and lightweight denim, there’s a lot of room for experimentation.
Double denim-ing is totally a thing nowadays and there is no shame in mixing and matching your favourite denim items from Springfield Malta. However, we really suggest that you avoid doubling up on the same weight or wash. Try to put together dark and light colours, as well as heavy and light weights – it’s usually best to go light in both ways up top and opt for dark washes or heavy weights on the bottom.
Do pick a flattering cut, but do not use denim accessories
We all come in different shapes and sizes – which is why it’s important to pick out a cut that suits your body type when you’re trying on jeans. At the moment all cuts are in fashion – from straight leg to flares and the boyfriend fit. It’s important to take into consideration your height, shape, as well as your shoe collection.
That said, denim accessories are very 1999 – in fact, you’re unlikely to find any at Springfield Malta. So put away your matching denim hat and handbag. No. Just no.
Do not double denim as a couple
We all know what happened the last time a particular celebrity couple did that, and it’s the only thing that’s more famous than their break up.
