Denim may be a classic staple but the way we choose to wear it is hugely personal. Which denim diva will you be this season?
For Retro Queens
The seventies-style flare remains a favourite for its flattering cut and leg-lengthening properties. Keep your look on the right side of retro by avoiding embroidered or broderie anglaise tops. A simple silk shirt and metallic shoulder bag keep this outfit in the 21st century.
For Quirky Classicists
You like sharp silhouettes and quintessential shapes but with a bit of a twist, so a classic trench reimagined in denim fits your style sensibilities. Keep the rest of your outfit understated and let your denim trench be the showpiece.
Whether you refer to it as the newsboy, baker boy, cabbie, or page boy—there's no denying this topper is taking over. It girls and supermodels alike have adopted this staple of the early 20th century 'working class' and news boys, and turned it into the ultimate cool-girl must have on or off the red carpet.
1 The Icons
Leave it to the French, like Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, to make anything chic, even a hat was once traditionally worn by men.
2 The It Brits
The hat became synonymous with glamorous supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss in the '90s keeping an air of incognito.
Pharrell made big news in March when he was announced as the first man to model a Chanel bag in a campaign. Back in December, he walked the runway for the brand's Métiers d'Art show in Paris. Now, he's the star of a campaign film featuring the new Chanel Gabrielle bag.
In a short film released today, the musician approaches an empty concert hall and turns it into his playground. During one especially tense moment, he walks a very unsafe-looking beam hanging in mid-air and almost–ALMOST–drops his Chanel bag.
See what happens next in the full film, below:
Whether you're in your 30s, 40s or 50s, the new season is full of fresh and colorful updates to give your closet the glamorous makeover it deserves.
