From the cloth of workers to the hallmark of punk, the days of denim as we know it are gone and in its place, a new coming. Forget repeating the classic, we’re reinventing it entirely.

1. Do the Double:
Tip your turban to the 70s and wear your Canadian tuxedo with a paisley pussybow for an instant refresh à la Gucci.

2. Equal Opportunities:

Borrow from the boys and team less-than-typical striped shirting with all-out androgynous jeans to keep everyone guessing.

3. Blooming Lovely:

Say it with flowers this spring and contrast the standard sturdiness of denim with whimsical chiffons and playful embroidery.

4. Crisp and Dry:

Expertly cut, pristinely starched and sophisticatedly topstitched: Jasper Conran makes deploying denim for workwear oh-so-easy.

5. Left Bank Luxe:

Lend an air of Rive Gauche nonchalance to your evening attire with spindly stilettos and rolled up straight legs. (The only difficult part = determining appropriate ankle-cleavage.)

6. Frill Seeking:

Elevate denim beyond its once utilitarian origins by adding a frayed flourish of Latin flare.

7. Don't Mellow with Yellow:

The sunny shade of the season was arguably created to be paired with indigo hues – pop on a straw boater (regardless of the Campbell-Stokes recordings) and be your own ray of light.
