Can't Get Enough ..... Denim

So happy that denim is having a revival this Spring - my much-loved FCUK denim jacket has been brought out from the back on the wardrobe in anticipation.

I've been busy at Firetrap recently, they have some great denim pieces such as this fitted denim shirt ...

with cute little details such as this mismatched button thread ...

and I adore this cute shirt dress with its retro 80s feel ...

I have replaced the denim tie belt for a Tommy Hilfiger leather studded belt and wear with these Russell and Bromley clogs ...

On the catwalk we are shown a more tailored and elegant approach to denim using finer fabrics and sharp tailoring.  At Derek Lam the cut is precise and the overall effect is smart and polished.  The classic combination of denim with a white shirt in my opinion can never go wrong.

Love it or loath it but the high waist seems to be here to stay, make it easier to wear by adding heels and keeping the trousers long enough to cover the entire heel.
