How do you like to wear denim? How does it fit your day-to-day style?
Whenever I wear denim (which is often!), I used it as a base to start an outfit. I pick a pair of jeans, jacket or even a denim trench coat and then build a look around it. For some reason denim just doesn’t work as well for me when I use it as a finishing touch! I think that’s because I don’t want it to be a last-minute addition, I want my denim to be a strong showstopper.
And how has it evolved with your style ?
As a teenager and student I used to be more into the classic more rock ’n roll sort of denim: think shredded jeans and hand-painted jackets. I bought a lot of ripped second hand denim pieces and combined these with my other eclectic vintage finds. These days I definitely tend to go for a more simple and sophisticated look. Light denim really has my preference, as it reminds me of a relaxed 70s California vibe, and that’s exactly where I want to be this Summer. I feel like I’m really growing through different kinds of denim!
Your thoughts on the 100% denim look?
Oh, I LOVE a full denim look! I’ve been wearing denim on denim since I was a teen, and I think the more grown-up version can be very stylish as well. I tend to wear the same hues of denim together, instead of contrasting light and dark. Again, this to me feels so chic and relaxed.
Your daytime go-to outfit?
Lately I’m very much into wide-legged jeans, so my current favourite daytime look would be wide jeans, a white tank top, a leather overshirt and flip-flops.
Your evening go-to outfit?
Talking parties, I like casual and underground clubbing, so I’d dress according to that. I’d wear a cool sleeveless vest like the Marcel on top of a black t-shirt dress with a pair of comfy boots and chunky jewelry. Simple, easy to dance in and very very cool!
What’s the oldest piece of denim that you still have in your wardrobe?
I don’t like to keep pieces that don’t fit me anymore, and as I'm growing older and my body is changing too, I don’t have a lot of old pairs of jeans. I think my oldest denim jacket must be one that I got cropped and hand painted at a festival a few years ago. I don’t really wear it anymore, but it just has so many good memories to it that I like to keep it anyway.
If you had to keep only one denim piece in your wardrobe?
A pair of high-waisted straight fit jeans. Whenever I don’t know what to wear, I just grab a pair of high-waisted jeans because it flatters me best and literally goes with anything. You can dress it up or down, wear it in all seasons and for all kinds of occasions. A classic!
