Denim has become a universal uniform and after many years is still going strong. If we talk about must-haves in a wardrobe, then one must possess at least 3 different pairs of denim.
When in doubt, less is more. Start with a clean, dark, rinsed denim. If you’re brave enough you can even go raw. Team your denim with interesting t-shirts with graphic prints or stripes. With the bottom being minimal in character, you can play with your tops. Poplin shirts in solids are a good option as well. Go for shirts with single chest pockets and slim collars, as well as enzyme-washed thin placket shirts which give a soft feel and a crumpled and casual look. Colours like white, cobalt blue, mint green and flaming mustard are vibrant when paired with blue denims and add life to the look whereas colours like dusty beige, troop khaki, greasy grey and preserved olive are the new kids on the block and will give you a very contemporary fashionable look.
Always style your pair of dark denim by turning them up. Never alter them to your length. One fold or two folds gives a really cool look when teamed up with a pair of ankle sneakers, loafers or espadrilles.
When you are feeling super confident and want to flaunt some attitude, go for mid-tone washed denim which reflects its character in washing. Select a denim with a nice pattern of whisker and well merged fading which should look like natural wear and tear rather than opting for a made up whisker pattern and unusual fading/contrasting which is a complete no. You can pair Polo tees which have a nice bold embroidered badge on the chest with these kinds of denims. Denim shirts with western yokes, indigo checks, over dyed and washed solids with smart details are the best options to pair with these jeans. Team them with nubuck chukka boots or with trainers.
Always wear a dark tan or black belt if you are tucking in your shirt or just let it hang loose and keep it simple and comfy.
The third pair of jeans you must have is the most happening pair of denims which has always been a favourite of rock stars and famous musicians. Whenever you want to be a little experimental, try torn jeans. Select a pair of denims which has been abused in washing, is frayed and damaged in various places with the weft visible and repaired with contrast patches thus giving a look of denim which has been through rigorous natural aging. Team it with a deep V-neck tee with a cold pigment finish, a heavily washed indigo jersey tee, a super hero t-shirt or a band t-shirt. High ankle boots in leather or laced up ankle sneakers will complete the look.
