Running the gamut from retro blues to rock-chick skinnies, here is a comprehensive guide to your most hard-working wardrobe staple. Introducing my favourite go-to denim friends and how best to wear.

The #throwback jean

Blazer: Acne Studios || Jeans: Monki ‘Kimomo’ || Shoes: Celine || Top: Stine Goya ||Clutch: Figaros Bryllup|| Sunnies: Celine

Man repellers rejoice: the mom jean is having a comeback. Style this faded 90s staple with shiny brogues and dressy separates for everyday ease. Logo underwear optional.

The slinky skinny

Jeans: Monki ‘Nokimi’ || Trench: Monki || T-shirt: Monki || Pumps: Jimmy Choo ||Clutch: Figaros Bryllup

The perfect-fit skinny pant is a rarified specie, but once you’ve tracked down your match-made-in-heaven, there will be no keeping you two apart. Team duly clad legs with low key lace-ups for street-smart chic and snazzy pumps for after-hours fun. Kate Moss, eat your heart out.

The second skin saviour

Jeans: Monki ‘Oki‘ || Sweatshirt: Calvin Klein || Shoes: Converse || Bag: Chanel|| Watch: Larsson and Jennings

Super soft, sprayed-on pants are the closest thing to lazy day leggings you can get away with without causing sartorial offence. Loose yourself in a roomy sweatshirt and let your stretchy five-pocket saviour do all the legwork. Best for: hungover sundays and never-ending meals.

The girl-meets-boy get-up.

Jeans: Monki ‘Ikmo’ || Knit: Monki || Jacket: Filippa K || Pumps: Jimmy Choo || Tote: By Malene Birger

The boyfriend jean is not, as its name suggests, a pair of blues stolen from the men’s department. It does however hold the key to tomboy chic a la Jane Birkin circa 1970. Offset with a simple pump and messy locks for effortless gamine style.
