>> I've developed an embarrassed shuffle whenever I'm at brand presentations or events involving denim.  It's similar to the one where I'm surrounded by fine jewellery and someone is talking to me about settings and stones and I have absolutely no fricking idea what is going on.  With denim, I've developed a sort of smising dumb head nod.  I go "Hmmm…absolutely…" whilst nodding and mum-smiling (i.e. no teeth).  The thing is no matter how much excitement people drum up about the various fits, washes and stitch innovations, there's only so much enthusiasm I can feel.  I'm on much surer ground though when it comes to being enthused by denim hues.  After years of going "I don't wear jeans, I don't wear jeans, I don't wear jeans." and "I hate denim, I hate denim, I hate denim" – lo and behold, I now have to eat all of those words with lashings of humble sauce.  I've found myself being permanently stuck to a few styles – namely some cords by MiH and a ripped up pair of J Brands - as well as being enticed by the new Hudson print styles.  Of course whether I then say wear a Quality Street wrapper skirt or a pair of bright orange leather culottes over the jeans is besides the point of this universally utilitarian and supposedly simple garment.  ASOS White's play with acid wash denim from last season (now on sale if you're after a bargain) is a fine example of how leaving the denim well alone can also be effective, given the shape of the super wide-leg trousers.  Ultimately, it's a bit all or nothing for me.  Piling on the denim in its many variants, is the antidote to eliminating any connotations in my mind that this fabric is basic or dull.

    I’ve always been a denim fan myself. In fact some people might say my fanage borders on obsession. I think it’s an incredibly versatile fabric. Just look at all the amazing pieces above, particularly that last ASOS loveliness!
