Ultra-skinny jeans paired with long slit tops and block-heeled booties or a wide leg, high-waist one teamed up with crop tops and pointed heels, denims can complement any look. You just need to find the right fit and style.

Bhavya Chawla, Chief Stylist, Voonik, a fashion app for women, suggests how:

Spot the fabric carefully: It’s time to stop wearing denims that are stretchable and have legging-like fits as we have had too much of them this winter. Instead, with the summer season approaching, pick rigid and vintage-inspired denims that can give you the old-school feel.

Go easy with  hems: Most people agree that slim-cut jeans are the hot favourite for every body type, but this season is not about restrictive ankle cuts. If you are willing to make a style impact, go for wider and breezier hems. From ultra-wide legs, cropped flares to the 1970s’ bell-bottoms and boot-cut shapes, the choices are enough to make you turn your back towards the shelves housing ankle-strangling fits.

Figure out the wash of the fabric: If easy distressing denims were your thing, it’s time to get over with them as white, ivory and sand-coloured jeans are here to stay now. Make a faded pair for yourself or go for a deeper, darker wash. You can experiment with a faded pair of jeans in shades of white, off-white, or an earthy tan hue. These neutral-coloured denims can be paired with everything in your closet, whether it is an oversized olive coloured sweater or with a crisp white shirt for a brunch.

Grab those oversized denim jackets: They can glam up any plain dress within seconds.

Dress up your denim-on-denim look: If you are someone who is crazy about denims and loves to wear a denim-on-denim style, make sure you throw in some pop colour to it or wear a simple, light coloured cotton blazer with it. Also, it will be a smart move if you avoid wearing a top and a bottom of the same shade or wash. In fact, take it as a strict no-no. Further, you must not eye those denim shoes or any other denim accessories to pair with this look.—IANS
