Denim Revisited

So we’ve done embroidery, we’ve done fraying and we’ve done tassels – what’s next for denim? Why, patches and panels, of course. Revisiting denim this autumn, the experimentation with shape and pattern isn’t going to slow down any time soon, and the babes at Dorothy Perkins have got heaps of new in pieces that will fulfil all of your denim dreams.

As the weather gets colder, we’ve all started to buzz with the excitement of pulling in new coats, jackets and knitwear, ready to bundle up as the nights draw in and moan like fuck about how much we miss summer. The straight jeans/maxi coat combo is something we’ll be seeing a lot of in the coming months, with it being the latest nod to cool girl, effortless dressing.

Although the puffa jacket is set to be the coat of the season, maxi and midi coats are classic pieces that bypass trend status and are guaranteed to set you up each and every AW. Paired with a white shirt – as I have here – longer length coats are smartened up and the tailored shape takes centre stage. This makes them perfect for those perilous journeys into the office during the week, but they also harness the ability to be dressed down with a tee for weekend wear.

As we start to transition into winter, I typically find myself folding up my jeans and easing them into hibernation, replaced by tailored trousers and woollen culottes. However, denim seems to still be having such a huge *moment*, that my shopping fingers have yet to stop and new pieces are continuing to find their way into my wardrobe. Patchwork and panelled jeans are the culprits that are currently stealing my heart, with the combination of multi-tonal shades updating the summer blues and giving them an AW refresh. And what’s an AW look without black boots?
