There are more denim washes to choose from then we count on one hand, but in the past few weeks, one in particular has shot to the top of our must-have radar. It’s not the classic wash nor the 80’s acid dye that has fast become a firm favourite in our wadrobe. It’s the light wash denim which has for a long time been the under dog in the denim stakes, often underestimated as something that can only be pulled off in the warmer months. But as we’ve discovered in our whirl wind romance with our light wash denim jeans, it is far more versatile than some think.
This is a look celebrities the world over have embraced. A tailored blazer and your favourite pair of jeans make for one comfy and trendy outfit which will have you sorted for your daily coffe run or a day out with the girlfriends. We just love the way the blue hues in the tartan print tie in with the blue denim.

If you’re stuck in a rutt and are lost as to how to style your light wash denim, throw on a white or cream top. We love the look of neutral hues and a good pair of pale blue jeans, it’s a combination which has never failed us and one that we’ll proudly sport again and again. The crochet detailing on this top also amps up the feminine factor in this ensemble.
Just like it’s classic cousin, light wash denim can be dressed up or down, and
dolled up or roughened up. Try adding some contrast with darker accessories or pieces like this knit crop top for an edgier look.
Are you a classic denim devotee, or have you fallen for light wash denim like us?
