AG Jeans- Statement Denim










AG Jeans Phoebe in 19 Year SplinterThe Claire Shirt by AG, Attico Mules, APC Half Moon Bag

This season a pair of statement jeans is a key style update for any wardrobe.

AG have nailed this trend with the Phoebe in 19 Year Splinter. Whilst a year or 2 ago I lusted after the most distressed and ripped denim, these days I prefer my rips to whisper on the hem of my jeans. This pair features a high waist, an uneven hem and two toned denim- points that are interesting but not over the top. I’m after a cleaner, “more European” look, that can work casually but also be dressed up. Pairing these jeans with a striped shirt creates a chic, but timeless look.

I love the versatility of these pieces and am certain they will become wardrobe staples.

Key features to look out for when shopping for statement denim:

  • Length– I prefer a cropped length to show off my shoes. Pair your shoe of choice with fishnet tights/socks for a very “of the moment” look.
  • Hem– look for a step, raw, or uneven hem.
  • Wash– I’m loving blue washes at the moment- especially vintage blue (think Levis).
  • Extra detail– embroidery, patchwork or two toned denim. Choose one not all.

Happy shopping!
