Venus in blue jeans

18th March 2019

There's a reason classic blue denim never goes out of style, it’s just so versatile says local fashion blogger Charlie Bond. This month, she looks at the ways you can give your jeans a spring refresh by hitting the high street

With all the animal print and bold colours stacked on shelves for spring, it may come as a surprise that I've chosen to focus on something a little more basic for this month's style feature. But, while snakeskin midi skirts and hot pink coats are great, if you're going to invest in one thing this season, make it some really good denim.

Jeans and a little white tee never go out of style. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor loved this classic combo as did the more contemporary screen icon such of Rachel as played by Jennifer Aniston in Friends. And we're still doing it to this day. Right now ‘mom’ jeans and skinny denims cropped at the ankles are where it's at, but why stop there? Denim is so versatile it can work in jackets, dresses, jumpsuits, skirts and more. My most worn item at the moment is a pair of dungarees which I practically live in - they're playful, can be dressed up or down and, have plenty of pockets which is always a necessity!

Even double denim is now acceptable. The trick is to mix colours or shades - think less cowboy and more Victoria Beckham. And if you’re looking for sartorial inspiration then here are some of my favourite spring denim picks, all available locally...
