All denim everything. Where to get the latest denim looks this season.
Excitement may be brewing over the impending new season but there is one classic look already dominating the high street…Denim.
With pieces featuring in numerous catwalk collections and twists on our traditional blue classics filling stores, there is plenty to choose from.
From seventies inspired button-up skirt and denims coloured in deep indigoes to true blues and bleaches…with over 200 stores, Manchester Arndale is the perfect place to embrace denim and update your wardrobe asap.
Warehouse: If a new pair of skinnies is what you’re after then get down to ‘WareDenim’ and look no further than ‘The Powerhold Skinny’, which uses patented technology to lift and sculpt the silhouette whilst maintaining their shape. For a relaxed summer feel, throw a denim shirt dress over a floral number and grab yourself a pair of chunky sandals from the reintroduced footwear line.
New Look: Have always been passionate about their selection of denim and there is no change this season, with a new range of improved fit jeans the store is set to redefine your style. Why not go for something a bit different and try their blue button front flared jeans, or rock double denim by teaming a pair of white ankle grazers with a blue denim shirt.
Topshop: Alongside their classic jeans and shorts, their denim is part of a 60s inspired collection. You can find cool a-line minis, such as the ‘MOTO’ indigo button front skirt, to staple skinnies or throw-on jackets – this season’s denim obsession means anything goes.
Guess: Primarily a denim store, is the perfect place to pick up a pair of high quality jeans. With next generation curve shaping, the new ‘Power Curvy’ style including their ‘Curve X’ range is sure to get heads turning, especially as it comes in five different styles - nearly one for every day of the week!
G-Star Raw: Have an extensive women’s range where you can rediscover styles that have been in the collection for years, like the ‘3301’, ‘Midge’ and ‘Lynn’. G-Star Raw jeans are characterised by fine detailing from top to bottom and a wide range of colours and washes. With choices of slim, straight, loose or boot fit there are options for every shape and style.
Let’s not forget the men, G-Star Raw also have a popular and high quality men’s section, with numerous fits and styles to choose from. Within their slim fit range is the highly popular ‘Arc 3D Slim’ which features reinforced stitching and inserted shaping panels. Select a darker finish like ‘Raw Denim’ or go for a more worn-down look with one of the rougher finishes like ‘Destroy’ and ‘Vintage Worn In’.
Events not to miss:
Oasis is hosting an in store event on 8 August where there will be a free styling event along with drinks, sweets and a free denim tote. Don’t forget to get yourself down to the Manchester Arndale store this Saturday.
