What’s Your Denim Identity?

Denim may be a classic staple, but the way we choose to wear it is hugely personal. Decide which denim diva you’ll be this season.

For Downtown Girls
If you’re one of those arty types who loves to hang out in Dublin’s creative quarter and acquire quirky finds in independent boutiques, this is the denim story you’ll be buying into for spring. Unleash your inner artiste by embellishing your denim in your own unique style.

  2. Sleeveless A-line denim shift with print detail,?340 at Victoria Beckham
  3. ?Studded denim mini skirt, Miu Miu ?750 at net-a-porter.com

Denim Tip: the unexpected pairing of an old-school denim skirt, complete with jeans rivets, with a glamorous maxi skirt looks fresh and modern.

For Retro Queens
If the 1970s moves your sartorial spirit, then you’ll be lusting after this season’s patchwork, or DIY denim trend. How to avoid looking like you’re living on Walton’s Mountain? Simply match your patchwork with high impact accessories.

Vintage Denim: pick up great vintage denim at ASOS Marketplace, Denim Refinery, Urban Renewal at Urban Outfitters and Nine Crows on Dublin’s Ormond Quay Lower.

For Quirky Classicists
You like sharp silhouettes and quintessential shapes, but with a bit of a twist, so frayed denim fits your style and sensibilities perfectly. Choose classic pieces reimagined in denim but with a subtle ?yet stylish frayed trim.
