9 fresh ways to wear denim like your favourite Singapore fashionistas

Stuck in a denim rut? Get inspired by the way these 9 local fashionistas ‒ Arissa Cheo, Kim Lim, Felicia Chin, Velda Tan & more ‒ work this versatile wardrobe staple and get your own look whipped into shape in no time
 

1. Arissa Cheo
This svelte fashionista is a big advocate of flares. But who isn’t? She styled a pair of wide legged overalls with on trend accessories —the coveted Dior sunglasses and a slouchy boho styled fringed bag from Thomas Wylde— and a pair of high heels that veered her out of the farmer’s zone completely. 

2. Kim Lim
Twice as much denim is twice as good. Jetting princess Kim Lim juxtaposed casual denim pieces with a luxurious Chanel Boy bag in shiny yellow gold and anchors the look with limited edition multicoloured sneakers from the Riccardo Tisci x Nike collection, no less.

3. Velda Tan
You usually find Velda in classy and sophisticated ensembles, so we were particularly drawn to this outfit she pulled together. Ripped black jeans, a slouchy cardigan paired with a Alexander Wang mini rocco bag; model off duty look mastered.

This 90s fashion staple has been resurrected in multiple styles recently. According to Jade, she bought this dungarees dress 3 years ago! She kept her blouse simple and used a pair of red strappy flats for a point of interest.

The beauty of denim is that there are literally endless ways to style it. When worn with a peplum blouse and peep toe heels, Rachel elevated casual faded denim into something polished and feminine.

Denim jeans don't have to always be skinny or ripped. This pair of high flares with a quirky zig-zag detail makes an instant statement on its own! If you are feeling adventurous, take the outfit a notch higher with a printed blouse.

Of course you would expect to see this social media star on our list. She has a plethora of immaculately styled denim outfits and it was hard to pick just one. This one was the eventual winner because (a) the denim romper is a cult favourite — Alexa Chung’s collaboration with AG Jeans and (b) she managed to work a pair of denim shoes into the outfit without looking tacky.

A denim shirt is it is actually a great wardrobe staple to have. They are comfortable and pretty much go with everything. Take a leaf from Beatrice’s style book and tuck it in a white crochet skirt for your weekend brunch date.

If you work in an industry that doesn’t adhere a strict dress code, consider this polished and smart way of wearing jeans to work. I love how she worked all the contrasting elements to her favour; torn jeans, basic tee and a sharp blazer, adorned with a pair of super cute bow sandals.

Denim is definitely a forever trend! Check out these 11 amazing denim accessories you must have.
