The Ultimate Denim Guide

Posted by Leigh Roldan on

Whether you love classic blue denim jeans or like to dabble in denim skirts and denim shorts in the summer, there's no denying that denim is a staple for every wardrobe. From its humble beginnings as durable workwear to its evolution into a global fashion phenomenon, denim has become a symbol of versatility, comfort, and timeless style.

With styles like denim jackets and overalls, washes like light wash and dark wash, and rises like mid rise and high rise, it can be tricky to navigate women's denim. To help you choose the perfect denim pieces for you, we've put together this ultimate guide!

Your Guide To:

How To Find The Perfect Jeans For You

First up, let's talk about everyone's favourite wardrobe must-have: women's denim jeans. Whether you're a fan of stretch denim skinny jeans and slim jeans or prefer more relaxed jeans like wide-leg and mom jeans, there's a denim style out there for everyone. Here are some of the most popular styles of women's jeans:

What To Pair With Wide-Leg Jeans

These throwback beauties are making a major comeback, and for good reason! With their relaxed fit and baggy silhouette, wide-leg jeans offer both comfort and style in equal measure. Pair them with a basic tee and some chunky trainers for a laid-back yet trendy look that's perfect for casual hang-outs.

How To Dress Up Straight-Leg Jeans

Looking for classic style that never goes out of fashion? You can never go wrong with straight-leg jeans. With their simple yet sophisticated silhouette, straight jeans are the perfect wardrobe item for any occasion. Achieve a boss babe look by styling them with a crisp white button-up shirt and loafers, or exude clean girl energy with a bodysuit and ballet flats.

How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans

For something in-between, wear something from "his closet" with our range of boyfriend jeans. Less-fitted than wide-leg, but more fitted than straight-leg, boyfriend jeans are the ultimate in laid-back cool. No need to go digging in your boyfriend's wardrobe because Ally has perfectly fitting jeans right here. Lean into the masculine vibe with an oversized sweatshirt and platform sneakers.

How To Make Low-Rise Jeans Work For You

Get iconic Y2K style with low-rise jeans! While they may have fallen out of favour for a while, low-waisted jeans are making a triumphant return to the fashion scene. Style them with a diamante tank top and some platform slides for a nostalgic yet fresh ensemble, or dare to show (even) more skin in a fitted crop top and sandals.

Why You Need High-Rise Jeans

If you're after ultra-flattering women's jeans, high-waisted jeans are for you! These figure-hugging wonders cinch in at the waist and elongate the legs for a look that's both chic and timeless. Whether you tuck it in or tie a knot at the waist, add a little street style with our range of graphic tees. Then, complete the 'fit with ankle boots and a tote bag.

How To Style Flare Jeans

Rock a retro vibe with flare jeans for women! With their dramatic bell-bottom shape, flared jeans add a touch of vintage glamour to any outfit. Dancing the night away with the girls? Pair them with a sequin or corset top and platform heels for a '70s-inspired look.

Where To Wear Black Jeans

Versatile and practical, black jeans go with everything! Whether you're dressing them up for a night out or keeping it casual for a day of running errands, black jeans are a wardrobe essential. From concerts to Friday night drinks, style a distressed pair with a faux leather jacket and black ankle boots for an edgy evening look.

When To Wear Denim Shorts

As the quintessential summer staple, denim shorts are the perfect pair for days in the sun. Whether you're hitting the beach or having a picnic with your besties, simply match your jean shorts with a cute crop top and strappy sandals for an effortless 'fit.

How To Stay On-Trend With Denim Skirts

From mini to maxi lengths, there's a denim skirt in our collection for every vibe. Whether you opt for a low-waist mini for the warmer months or stay on-trend this season with a maxi skirt, you can never go wrong. Venture beyond the typical blue and black shades and shop denim skirts in a huge range of colours like green, red, purple and beige.

Why Denim Overalls Are a Must-Have

Put a contemporary spin on a classic design with our selection of denim overalls. Synonymous with '90s pop culture, make it your own with short overalls for casual summer 'fits or go all out with long overalls for a more relaxed feel. Just team them with a button-up shirt and bandana for the signature overalls look.

What To Wear With Denim Jackets

Denim jackets are the timeless classic that never goes out of style. Whether you're rocking a blue denim jacket or going bold with vibrant colour, there's no denying the power of the denim jacket. Wondering what to wear with denim jackets? Just throw it on any casual 'fit like a floral dress and sandals. Or why not try some double denim action?

How To Rock Double Denim

There's nothing more iconic than the Britney & Justin double denim moment at the 2001 AMAs, but denim-on-denim doesn't always have to be a statement. Keep it casual with a white tee, ripped jeans and a denim jacket, or step it up a notch with a denim shirt and jeans in the same wash. Whether you're channelling the carefree vibes of the '70s or the grunge aesthetic of the '90s, double denim is here to stay.
