Phuket Lifestyle: Ingenious forms of jeans

PHUKET: Everyone has their favorite go-to pair of jeans, great for weekends and perfect for an array of casual events always held in Phuket.

Denim is a classic material that is versatile and flattering for every age, figure, gender or style. It’s always changing and giving us new reasons to fall in love with it again and again.

No matter the era or the season, denim will feature within a trend. Two years ago we saw a huge skinny jean wave hit the main stream. This sleek look evolved last year to include a rainbow of colors from hot pink to lemon yellow. Jeggings (stretch leggings that look just like tight jeans) were all the craze as the skinny jean reigned on.

This year, the boys seem to be keeping colored denim alive, going far beyond the basic blues. Their look is usually fitted or flared, paired with a favorite T or a vintage cowboy shirt if something collared is desired.

Go monochrome head-to-toe to really emphasize the colored jean look. With one spin of the color wheel you can show people you don’t have to have the blues when choosing this favorite trouser.

The ladies on the other hand have traded in length for daytime shorts in traditional worn-in blue hues, showing some skin and looking just as cool as they hope to feel. But don’t expect to see frayed Daisy Dukes making a comeback any time soon. Cut-offs have been given a mature update with a double-cuff, giving these classic blues a cleaner edge.
Baggy tops are still hot this season but with an unexpected, airy twist- crochet! These tops are far from old fashioned though – from cropped to sheer, cream to pastel, they are the perfect companion to vintage denim bottoms. The allure of this look is best achieved with a small camisole showing underneath.

While donning this girl-next-door look, keep accessories at a minimum. Dainty silver and turquoise pieces can really enhance denim’s style. A handmade leather bag will prove an excellent sidekick. A big floppy hat can make any normal day feel like a holiday while natural make-up and easy-going sandals seal the deal.

Keep your eyes open for new upcoming trends with this enduring wardrobe favorite. Patch-working details are starting to replace old rips and holes, evidence of a shift in the fashion world from rocker to indie. Denim dresses are popping up more and more as the jean skirt gets pushed to the back of the closet. There’s no telling what forms denim will take on next.
