SS17 DENIM STYLE GUIDE
By Kasia Hastings, 3 April 2017
Bleached out: look 1
80s acid-wash and bleached denim is big news in menswear, so go for a pair of splattered skinny jeans to get in on the action early. Wear this style with a black leather jacket and bulky Chelsea boots to amp up the steez top and bottom.
Underneath, update your vintage vibe by layering a black shirt over a brown polo tee, add some silver jewellery and you’ve brought your punk-inspired denim bang up to date.

If you’re not down for getting leathered this spring, do bleached denim with a boxy white jacket. Pairing patterned jeans with a clean, crisp top will keep things looking nice and fresh.
Ripped: look 1
Ready for some trashed, repaired and reconstructed workwear? We’ve been ripping up our jeans for a while, but there’s a new breed of damaged denim that's made up of way more than knee rips and nicks.

For a more summery feel, trade in your music memorabilia for a Levi's tee that has Americana oozing from its very seams.
Customised: look 1
If you’re after an edgier take on your go-to cuts, try a patched, embroidered update on standard denim jeans and jackets. This pair of customised wash-black skinnies are the perfect punk-inspired piece to experiment with.
Wear turned up and with an oversized yellow hoodie to stop things feeling too macabre. Layer over a sleeveless checked shirt and pop on a pair of black Converse and you're SS17 ready.

Alternatively, double up your denim and pair your patched jeans with a jacket with a leopard-print collar and cool stud detailing for a new twist on the Canadian tuxedo.
