4 new ways to wear denim

Polish up the tomboy look
Styling tip: Chiara Totire, from Milan, expertly nails the contrast mixing that’s so popular right now. This is because she doesn’t overdo it. Mix one feminine detail, such as the simple bit of lace on her Jil Sander beanie, into an otherwise masculine look.

Give girly-girl outfits an edge
Styling tip: Pink, the most saccharine of colors, suddenly gets major bite when paired with boyfriend jeans and a fisherman’s sweater. And let us draw your eye to the navy blue nails on Irina Lackicevic, from London. Sensing a theme here?

Double up on denim, with flair
Styling tip: Like head-to-toe black or white, double denim is the perfect blank canvas to dress around. We especially like it to show off bold outerwear and accessories the way Candela Novembre of Milan does.

Bring old-school high-tops back
Lately, when we see sneakers in a fashion story, it’s the neon Nike Free or primary colored New Balance. But the classic high top (and we’re not talking about those trendy wedge ones) has been overlooked. Londoner Bryona Hayne’s sporty look makes a good case for fixing that.
