We guarantee you own at least one denim item, right? Whether it's a trusty pair of high street jeans or a jacket you've owned for years, denim is the fabric that sticks around no matter the season, year or even decade.
Finding the best jeans for your shape and style is a game changer when it comes to your classic capsule wardrobe, but how can you step outside your comfort zone when it comes to denim?
With autumn pieces dropping in store and online, we've taken this opportunity to show you ways to style the new staples. From the jumpsuit you'll wear on repeat to the new jean cut – these are the new ways to wear denim.
Five ways to wear denim for autumn/winter 2020
1. Try a white denim jacket
You may think white is only for summer but think again. By opting for a white denim jacket instead of the usual classic blue it means you can also style it with said classics. Denim jackets used to be tight fitting but now it's all about going a size up and wearing oversized – perfect for adding autumn layers such as roll neck knits underneath. Make like influencer Grece and wear with loose fitting jeans for a laid back look.
2. Go for a flattering belted jumpsuit
Being able to throw on one item and be ready to go is a complete win – enter, the jumpsuit. If you opt for a timeless fabric like denim you know you'll be buying an item with longevity. For a universally flattering style, opt for belted iterations. Highlighting the waist, a simple belt tie can take a jumpsuit from good to great in an instant.
3. Ditch skinny jeans for straight leg styles
If putting on a pair of skinny jeans again – after months in comfy loungewear – fills you with dread, then fear not. Luckily, the spray on style is gone and it's all about a chicer straight leg fit. It's the style you can wear with anything from sandals and trainers to courts and boots. Take note from fashion director Tray and style with other wardrobe staples like the crisp white shirt and blazer combo.
4. Add dungarees over a fine knit jumper
Not just for decorators, the dungaree deserves a place in your wardrobe this season and beyond. Try layering over a fine knit jumper for autumn and add more layers such as a roll neck top once it gets cooler. Tip: it also looks just as good with a shirt underneath.
5. Pair a denim skirt with a denim shirt
You heard it right, double denim is back. Steer away from the tight jeans and jacket 90s girl band look and opt for oversized silhouettes instead. Go for a midi skirt and if you prefer showing off your waist them tuck in the shirt.
We guarantee you'll never tire of these denim picks – we can't wait to see how you style yours.
