The Hero Piece: Denim

I saw Kourtney Kardashian rocking a double denim look completed with pointed nude stilettos. It was such an easy look to adapt to your own personal style. What I really loved about this kind of look is that you have to look no further than your bedroom rails where I’m sure every man and woman has a denim style pick in their wardrobe which is why denim is the ultimate hero piece to be investing in once again this season.

I found it interesting to know that denim which has been around since the 1500’s originated from a French town called Nimes. The name of the iconic fabric derived from its location ‘denim’ abroad which Navy sailors where the ones to pioneer the fabric which is still loved by many today.

No matter the season or year denim is a timeless style that you can bring out and feel just a stylish in a classic fabrics that blend with a variety of colours and textures.

The great attribute that denim has is the fact that it can come in so many varieties and forms where today we see more variations of the trusted fabric more so than ever.

Today our choices are endless where there are bucket loads of styles on the market that feature stretch, print or distressed styles to embellished and adorned pieces in cuts with a directional twist.
