Denim Daze

You’re alone in a fitting room and you’ve just tried on a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly. Yes perfectly. You let out silent whoops of joy and shimmy in every which way possible to catch a glimpse of how fabulous your derrière is looking in these denim miracles.

You live in said pair of jeans because they go with everything, make you feel fabulous and are the epicentre of your wardrobe. And if they’re a pair of Vero Moda skinnIes then a jeans related Facebook post from What Sarah did…sets your heart a-fluttering. The most important message on your timeline in that moment is that your favourite cut is now available in grey, coated or black fade! When you rush to WSd HQ to get your fix you don’t even try them on because with this wondrous brand once you know your waist and leg size you’re set! Simple!

I mean it really is little wonder that after reaching the summit of jean-dom, denim is our comfort blanket. And it’s not just jeans, diverse denim is everywhere this season and it’s a worthy transitional option.

News just in…a new drop of skinny re-worked ankles grazers (£36) has landed in WSd HQ. They’re selling like hot cakes though so move quickly. The addition of the zip ankle graze means that these dreamboats are quite simply screaming to be paired with the Moda in Pelle Chiara heels. (£99). These skinnies will give you a sleek and clean silhouette, so balance the look with a chunky knit. There’s a sumptuous selection to choose from at WSd HQ but the slouchy vibes of this Somedaylovin (£60) winter essential are calling our names.

When our very own WSd angel Maz rocked the Neon Rose patchwork dress (£40) in store, it swiftly flew off the hanger and was an instant sell-out.  She breezed through her Saturday shift with an effortlessly cool vibe, proving that all this patchwork number required was a pair of espadrilles and a dash of sass. For transitional cool, team with your favourite kicks for a laid back look.

The current weather situation is perfect, sunny yet crisply cool and a denim jacket will be your go-to transitional fave. The Vero Moda Tanja denim jacket (£44) is an update of the 90s classic and taps into this season’s raw edge trend. Zip detail on the sleeve adds a hint of luxe to this wardrobe staple, making the Tanja even more accommodating for either your day or night outfit.

With the Somedayslovin Blue Moon Dress (£78) you’ll feel like you’ve bought another pair of those perfect jeans- that’s how much you’ll love and wear it! This uber cool brand has reworked the classic denim dress with that oh so topical raw edge and neckline detailing to boot. Pair now with bare legs and the Veja Esplar low rise kicks and when the weather bites go for thick tights and the Moda in Pelle Ametti boots (£90). A roll neck and leather jacket would make worthy winter additions. 

If the thought of a denim skirt is giving you flashbacks of faded 90s minis then don’t panic, we have a sophisticated style option with effortlessly chic credentials. All hail the ‘mega-midi’- a term coined by our very own Sarah to describe the MINKPINK long line denim skirt. Wear this slim-fit pencil shape now with a sheer shirt or tee to achieve a hot hourglass silhouette.

Whether you go double or just work your look around one key piece, denim will be your sartorial saviour as the seasons change.
