Spring has sprung and so have all the Spring collections! All our favourite stores are bursting at the seams with flowy dresses, floral prints, and transitional denim to get us through the cooler Spring days (and into the cooler Summer nights) in Vancouver.  Finding the right jeans for your body can be a feat, in and of itself.  Not to mention finding a pair of jeans you LOVE. And now that you have them, what to wear with them as the weather gets warmer? Sam (The Family Jewels) and I partnered with Plenty and have put together some looks to show you how versatile denim can be for Spring.  Here’s how to style spring denim, in a nutshell 😉

How to style Spring denim

Find the perfect pair!

Finding a pair of jeans that you feel great in is step number 1.  There is a lot to consider when buying jeans and it all comes down to personal preference. Do you like high-waisted or mid-rise in the waist? Do you like skinny or boyfriend cut? Do you like cropped or full-length? Stretch or no stretch? It can feel like the wild west when you aren’t quite sure what you are looking for. I am a very hands-on person when it comes to buying clothing (or anything really), so I like to physically touch the items and walk around in them before I make my purchase.

The great thing about Plenty is that they have a brand called Tailor Made that is exclusive to their store- and within that brand they have SO many styles to choose from.  The price is right- hovering around the $100 mark and the quality is excellent. This is a GREAT place to start when searching for your perfect pair (or a few perfect pairs)!

How to Style Your Denim!

Much like how finding your perfect jeans is personal preference… so is how you style your denim.  I call my style effortless style.  I like to feel put together even if it takes me no time at all and very little thought.  To achieve this, I choose clothing and accessories that I know I’ll feel great in and that are not fussy.  I wear jeans pretty much every single day, which is why finding a great quality and price-point is super important to me.  I like to have a variety is washes (black, dark blue, light blue, white, etc) to allow for some versatility in my outfits.  Once you’ve got the jeans, all your need are some cute tops (check these ones out) and accessories and your outfit is MADE!

Spring 2019 Trends

The great thing about jeans is that you can stay safe with classic styles and still look and feel great.  If you want to branch out, you can get on board with the newer trends to shake up your look.  This Spring/Summer, when it comes to denim, you’ll see a lot of cropped pants, wider leg and flare, exposed button-flies and frayed hems.  Little details that make your denim take centre stage… and it’s just fun to mix it up every now and again when it comes to fashion!

Incorporating some other Spring trends into an outfit sends the message: “I know what’s hot right now” . 😉 Here are some fun Spring trends to add to your denim to seamlessly be on trend this season:

  • animal print (throw on a leopard print belt or some snakeskin sandals)
  • statement earrings (spice up your outfit with some earrings that will turn heads)
  • nude block heels/wedges
  • fitted blazer (to easily take your look from day to night)
  • belt bags and fanny packs (yes, they are back!)
  • cropped denim jackets (for that Canadian tuxedo look)
  • crochet/straw bags
