How White Denim Got Cool (Again…)

The fashion-sphere is full of opinion dividers – pool sliders, harem pants and slip dresses to name a few – but none are more polarising than white denim.

The ultimate jean fix of the, um, directional 80s, the super-fresh fabric has since become something of sartorial stigma and the brunt of countless jokes (what’s the deal with Labour Day anyway?!) Now, that’s all about to change.

Fashion’s biggest influencers are on a personal mission to elevate white denim to chic new heights, and they’re setting their sights way beyond just jeans. 

Skirts, jackets, jumpsuits, you name it – everything in your wardrobe is about to be white washed. While icy, skinny trews are notoriously unforgiving, you’ll find wide leg culottes, button-down midis and oversized jackets super flattering.

Styling wise, we recommend adopting the ‘less is more’ mantra – think striped shirts, leather bikers and ladylike add ons instead of leg warmers and extreme shoulder pads. ‘Cause not every #throwback trend is a triumph.
