How to Take Denim from Casual Cool to Smart Chic

A staple pair of black skinny jeans can be styled to fit pretty much any occasion. These Lyla skinnies from Dorothy Perkins are the perfect example.  They’re everything I look for in skinnies, sturdy but stretchy with thin seams that can be easily tucked into boots.

Casual Cool

Keep things casual by styling your skinnies with a pair of low-heeled ankle boots and a plain tee. Black denim is the perfect colour for a subtle but trendy double denim daytime look. Add a fedora and sunnies for effortless cool.

For a smarter daytime look opt for a plain shirt and tie front coat. Chunky boots with a mid to high heel instantly add a dressier quality.

For a smart look that could take you from the office to after work drinks, pair your jeans with high heels and trade your handbag in for a clutch. Soft tailoring and geek chic specs make smart simple.
