I am a classified denim junkie. Certainly, nothing reflects off-duty style like the abundance of frayed and faded blues – whether the world’s supermodels are stepping off a yacht or running errands in the city, the key is to always look effortless in denim. It is almost impossible to hark back to a time before street style as we know it now, and the simple treat of seeing models caught undone stems from the theory that their personal sartorial choices reflect inner selves the public rarely sees. Case in point: models prefer comfort to couture – a look highly coveted and an aesthetic well-documented – so it is evident that the DNA of great off-duty street style is all in the jeans.
For one, I love pairing beyond battered blues with neutrals like camel or grey. The combination is a surefire way to look relaxed and yet put together at once, and I find that if you leave certain elements undone (i.e. simply leaving a lace up top untied, or tying a coat at the waist), it can give the ensemble what the French may call a certain je ne sais quoi.
The cool, carefree credentials of denim jeans will always reign supreme when it comes to casual days off. So whether you have a textured knit peeking out over, or a roll-neck top tucked into and under a jacket, denim can be juxtaposed with an endless array of separates sure to whet your appetite.
