From our go to combo of “jeans and a nice top”, to our favourite denim cut offs for a day at the beach, or a cute pinafore dress and sneakers, denim is truly a crucial but adaptable item we all need in our wardrobes this spring. With this in mind, we’ve scoured the biggest brands and high street stores to find our top denim picks this season. Suitable for all shapes and sizes, it’s time to experiment with newer, fresher styles as denim becomes more popular and versatile than ever…
Jeans are a fundamental piece in any wardrobe, regardless of age, gender or status almost everyone owns a pair (or five!). However, more and more brands are considering and noticing the struggle us girls have with finding the perfect fit. Whether dressed up or down, these key but flattering styles will see you through any occasion. Pair them with sneakers or sandals for a casual edit, or throw on your favourite heels to change your look entirely! You’re welcome.
Sassy Tip: Topshop Jeans come in Petite and Tall styles, finding your perfect fit has never been easier!

We’ve all been there; the dreaded challenge of finding the perfect denim cut offs is enough to almost put us off shopping altogether. However, it is now easier than ever to banish those fears once and for all, with longer, baggier and comfier shorts styles emerging this season. None the less, if you still fancy bearing a little more to show off your new spray tan, short shorts aren’t going anywhere!

Temperatures are on the up, but the humidity is still slightly at bay, so now is the perfect season to mix up your denim game. We love the colour twists available for the classic dungaree dress, but if it’s more chic than cute that you’re after, don’t worry there’s a huge range of styles available this season. Think animal print, oversized belts, buttons and more.

We only have a short window in Hong Kong for “light jacket weather”, and as a jacket can complete or transform any look, we suggest to embrace this time whilst you can! The right denim jacket can last you years, and you can be confident about one thing; it never goes out of style. However, if you’re looking to mix things up a bit and make a bolder statement, brands are releasing an array of colours, prints and embellished designs we cannot wait to get our hands on.

A denim skirt should be a key part of your wardrobe throughout the year. Whatever the weather, you can style this versatile piece however you wish to reflect your own personality. Although it can be tricky to find a fit that’s just right for you, there is a vast range of shapes and lengths available, meaning you’re sure to find the perfect skirt for you. We love to keep our denim simple with a tee and sneakers, but you can easily swap your trainers in for a pair of heels, for an effortless day to night look.
