Denim is a foundation piece in every wardrobe. A versatile year-round fabric that acts like a neutral, it goes with everything and has the ability to adapt to every season and almost any occasion. In tailored form, it’s even perfect for the office, offering a more formal take on the everyday essential. Look for all the features you’d ordinarily find in tailoring – like waistline pleats that add subtle volume, refined leg shapes and welt pockets.
For work, elevate with other tailored separates, like blazers and shirts.
To add boardroom-level polish, try teaming with a leather blazer.
Opt for roomier fits to highlight the tailored detailing.
A pair of mid-heel sandals is the perfect way to elevate tailored denim.
Keep the rest of your look subtle. Pair with monochrome basics that allow the tailoring details to shine.
Find the wash that works for you. A darker wash looks smarter, while a lighter wash is better for off-duty days.
