THE DENIM REVIVAL

Spring 2015 is a really exciting season for denim. With an array of new silhouettes to work with, designers have thrown the doors open and this time, there are no limits, says Vogue.co.uk acting editor Lucy Hutchings

SEVENTIES SWING: BRING A TOUCH OF RETRO STYLE
TO YOUR LOOK

“The 1970s trend is key for spring/summer 2015,” says Lucy. “It’s something we saw permeating a huge number of catwalk collections, with a strong focus on languid shapes and a bohemian aesthetic. From high-waisted flares to the perfect A-line skirt, retro style is definitely having a moment”

THINK PRINT
Pairing classic denim with a bold printed piece like a trophy jacket (à la Gucci, pictured) or blouse is a great way to add a 1970s touch to your look

SUMMER STAPLES: NEW WASHES, TOP-TO-TOE DENIM AND THE JUMPSUIT

“Denim doesn’t have to mean stiff indigo fabric. For spring, designers have worked it into more casual pieces, in a way that’s different from classic jeans. The chic denim jumpsuit is a hero piece this season, while a pair of fresh white jeans will give your wardrobe an injection of new summer style”

HERO PIECE
This Indigo jumpsuit is timeless. Wear it for work with a pair of flats; throw a pair of heels in your bag and you’ve got a chic evening look for dinner or cocktails

THE NEW JEANS: CLASSIC DENIM BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT

“This season, there isn’t a key jean style that you have
to embrace. Denim will be servicing all areas of your wardrobe, and there’s an option for everyone.
Whether it’s flared, high-waisted or cropped, you’ll
be calling on spring’s new silhouettes for work,
weekend and evening, too”

LAID-BACK LOOKS
Forget the classic pedal-pusher cut; designers like Gucci looked to looser shapes for SS15 (pictured), making the wide-leg culotte a weekend staple and embracing washed and faded styles

EMBRACE THE FLARE

A higher-waist flare creates an ultra-flattering silhouette. Plus, it’s a great day-to-night style worn with a good heel, a chic blouse and a nipped-in jacket
