|Timeless or Trendy? or Both? (source: Look)|
I’ve said before but I’ll say it again; I love denim! I go through jeans like nothing else and my denim jacket is worn all year round- I even took to layering it under my winter coats. The beauty of denim is that it is timeless. Yes, trends come and go but essentially denim is timeless. And to be honest, most shapes, cuts and styles can be updated by tops and accessories. It’s one of the things I love about vintage and retro denim, that it can be so easily updated without losing its character. Admittedly the outfits shown above aren’t exactly retro but they do showcase denim beyond jeans fairly well. I’ve been looking for a denim skirt or shift/dress for ages, though I refuse to pay some of the ridiculous prices. And with denim, as my gorgeous jacket shows, with age it improves so charity, vintage or retro sourced denim is actually an investment. And who knows, maybe in another ten years or so these styles will be retro. Then again, the pencil skirt is timeless even in denim.
